Cruiser, destroyer, nuclear submarine

USS Greeneville
Woodstock weapons contracts for the first few days of 2012 include rush orders for parts for three Navy warships: USS Greeneville, a nuclear-powered submarine; USS Pinckney, a guided-missile destroyer recently active in the Gulf of Aden region; and USS Vicksburg, a guided-missile cruiser.

In 2001 the Greeneville collided with a Japanese fishing vessel, killing 9 Japanese civilians including 4 children; the following year it collided with another naval vessel, the USS Ogden, resulting in the spilling of thousands of gallons of oil.
