USS Texas (SSN-775)

The fourth USS Texas (SSN-775), will be the second Virginia-class nuclear attack submarine when she joins the fleet in 2005. She will be the fourth ship named in honor of Texas, a region that, after being taken from its natives by first Spain and then Mexico, and later becoming an independent republic, was admitted to the United States as the 28th state on December 29, 1845.

For the other ships of the United States Navy that have borne the name USS Texas, see that index page.
