First of the nuclear-powered anti-submarine submarines, the USS Tullibee is shown at see shortly after commisioning at her General Dynamics Corporation's Electric Boat Division dock in Groton, Conn. Carrying the smallest crew of any nuclear ship - six officers and fifty men - the 273-foot Tullibee is one of the Nevy's newest Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) weapons and is designed specifically to seek out and destroy enemy submarines. She carries more sonar equipment than all U.S. submarines of World War II.
