Check out the newest Virginia-Class Submarine, the USS Minnesota.

It was built at Newport News Shipbuilding.

It successfully completed alpha trials, which are the sub's first round of at-sea tests and evaluations.

Minnesota will undergo two more rounds of sea trials before being delivered later this month.

It will be done 11 months ahead of schedule.
