{The Los Angeles-class attack submarine USS Dallas.}
The Los Angeles- class attack submarine USS Dallas (SSN 700), built and homeported in Groton,  departs Souda harbor following a brief port visit to GreeceDallas was portrayed in The Hunt for Red October thriller, but its mission today is post-Cold War.  Commissioned in 1981, Dallas was the first Los Angeles-class submarine to have a dry deck shelter (DDS) to provide greater capability of deploying Special Operations Forces (SOF). DDSs can transport, deploy, and recover SOF teams from Combat Rubber Raiding Crafts or SEAL Delivery Vehicles, all while remaining submerged.  In an era of littoral warfare, this capability substantially enhances the combat flexibility of both the submarine and SOF personnel.
