USS Hawaii Participates in ASWEX

The Virginia-class fast-attack submarine USS Hawaii (SSN 776) participated in the 2015 Anti-Submarine Warfare Exercise (ASWEX) with the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) as part of their Western Pacific deployment Feb. 8-16.

ASWEX is an annual event hosted by the JMSDF that included four JMSDF submarines, one U.S. submarine, three surface vessels and multiple aircraft in 2015.

The long-standing partnership is strengthened with the participation of a U.S. submarine; each crew gaining experience of the tactics and tenacity of their Japanese counterparts.

Hawaii is the 3rd ship of the Virginia-class fast-attack submarines. It is the first ship in the fleet to bear the state of Hawaii’s namesake and is homeported in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
