  • USS Triton

    The nuclear submarine USS Triton (SSRN-586) Triton was designed as an advanced radar picket submarine. She would use her powerful electronics to gather intelligence, control aircraft interceptions, and detect hostile airborne targets. Also the first circumnavigation of the globe while completely submerged. While transiting the Bohol Strait, Triton raised her periscope up and startled a local who was paddling in what he no doubt thought was empty water. The photo was snapped on April 1, 1960.
