Submarine Squadron 11 (also known as SUBRON 11) is a squadron of submarines based at Point Loma Submarine Base, San Diego, California, United States.

History[edit]

Submarine Squadron 11 is a squadron of submarines based in San Diego, California. It consists of five Los Angeles-class submarines, a floating dry-dock, Arco, and Undersea Rescue Command. The squadron staff is responsible for providing training, material and personnel readiness support for all units. Submarine Squadron 11 is located on Naval Base Point Loma in San Diego, Calif.

Submarine Squadron 11 was commissioned July 1, 1986, aboard her flagship, McKee, at Naval Submarine Base Point Loma, San Diego.

Over the years, Squadron 11 has continued to evolve. Older submarines have transferred, or been decommissioned, henceforth the squadron has received newer submarines with upgraded sensors and weapons capability. Squadron 11 submarines represent the most advanced submarine technology and are among the most capable and clean attack submarines in the world.

Submarine Squadron 11 units maintain a very aggressive operational schedule, including training and operations with other ships in the Southern California operating area, independent operations to enhance readiness and deployments to the Western Pacific, Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf. Their missions include anti-submarine, anti-surface, strike, special and mine warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. The submarine community is a small force with a big impact and unique capabilities for any operational commander.
