A welcoming committee of Sea Gulls escorts and rides the Los Angeles Class Fast Attack Submarine USS ASHVILLE (SSN 758) as she prepares to pulls into her homeport of Naval Base (NS) Point Loma, California (CA) after an underway period off the coast of Southern California.

The USS Asheville is bound for Guam and is expected to make port tomorrow.
Guam – The Los Angeles-class attack submarine USS Asheville is scheduled to arrive at its new homeport of Guam at 1 p.m. on Thursday. The USS Asheville is fitted with a developmental Advanced Mine Detection System which utilizes a high-frequency active sonar array with transmitters and receivers in the sail and in a disc-shaped chin sonar dome beneath the hull at the bow. The system is used for target detection, mine avoidance, and bottom navigation.

Asheville is replacing Los Angeles-class attack submarine USS Chicago as Guam’s fourth homeported submarine. Meanwhile the USS Chicago’s new homeport is Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, where it is scheduled to complete a maintenance overhaul.
