Perhaps you missed or forgot this great submarine motto: The Arsenal of the Nation. Compared to previous SSNs, its class sports increased weapons.
Her sister ships' mottos are Cave Lupem (Beware the Wolf) and Semper Optima (Always the Best).
By now, you have identified these as the three Seawolf class (SSN-21) subs.
Here is the concluding text from a declassified report written by then Commanding Officer, USS CONNECTICUT (SSN 22):
Ironically, CONNECTICUT finished 2003 where she began, but with a myriad of accomplishments under her belt. Combating material problems with vigor, USS CONNECTICUT (SSN 22), the Arsenal of the Nation, will always be ready to support
any required tasking in defense of our homeland.
During a fast cruise pier side technical problems were noted with the ship's Secondary Propulsion Unit (SPU) as well as ongoing difficulties with the Variable Shunt Field Devices (VSFD) which control the operating speed of the ship's trim and drain pumps. Submarines are always silent and strange.
