An attack submarine or hunter-killer submarine is a submarine specifically designed for the purpose of attacking and sinking other submarines,surface combatants and merchant vessels. In the Soviet and Russian navies they were and are called "multi-purpose submarines". They are also used to protect friendly surface combatants and missile submarines. Some attack subs are also armed with cruise missiles,increasing the scope of their potential missions to include land targets.

A nuclear submarine is a submarine powered by a nuclear reactor,but not necessarily nuclear-armed. Nuclear submarines have considerable performance advantages over "conventional" submarines. Nuclear propulsion,being completely independent of air,frees the submarine from the need to surface frequently,as is necessary for conventional submarines. The large amount of power generated by a nuclear reactor allows nuclear submarines to operate at high speed for long periods,and the long interval between refuelings grants a range virtually unlimited,making the only limits on voyage times being imposed by such factors as the need to restock food or other consumables.
USS Andrew Jackson (SSBN-619) was a Lafayette-class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine. It was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for Andrew Jackson (1767–1845),the seventh President of the United States (1829–1837).

Both names were used with the captains of the Blue and Gold crews alternately using the names John Adams and John Quincy Adams.
USS Kamehameha (SSBN-642) was a Benjamin Franklin-class ballistic missile submarine and the only ship in the United States Navy to be named after Kamehameha I,the first King of Hawaii. She is one of only two United States ships named after a monarch. She was later reclassified as an attack submarine and re-designated SSN-642.
USS Ulysses S. Grant (SSBN-631),a James Madison-class fleet ballistic missile submarine,was the third ship of the United States Navy to be named for Ulysses S. Grant (1822–1885),American Civil War general and the 18th President of the United States (1869-1877).
USS Von Steuben (SSBN-632),a James Madison-class fleet ballistic missile submarine,was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for Baron Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben (1730–1794),a Prussian army officer who served in the American Revolutionary War.
The names of commissioned ships of the United States Navy all start with USS,for United States Ship. Non-commissioned,primarily civilian-crewed vessels of the U.S. Navy under the Military Sealift Command have names that begin with USNS,standing for United States Naval Ship. A letter-based hull classification symbol is used to designate a vessel's type. The names of ships are selected by the Secretary of the Navy. The names are those of states,cities,towns,important persons,important locations,famous battles,fish,and ideals. Usually,different types of ships have names originated from different types of sources.
