Trident sea trials said to be successful

The Navy's first Trident nuclear submarine, the $3 billion Ohio, returned home after three days of sea trials that its builders called a "very successful run."

Navy officials said little, but representatives of the Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics said the sub, equipped with the nation's most destructive weapons system, and its crew of 139 enlisted men and 15 officers performed well.

The 560-foot Ohio has a displacement of 18,750 tons and is capable of carrying 24 Trident II missiles and surface and antisubmarine torpe does.
