The officers and crew of Ohio are excited to be in Kota Kinabalu and on deployment in the Western Pacific. For many of the crew, this was their first time visiting Kota Kinabalu. The crew was anxious to meet their Royal Malaysian Navy counterparts and immerse themselves in the Malaysian culture.

The USS Ohio is the first of four Ohio-class guided-missile submarines. The Navy's guided-missile submarines provide the Navy with unprecedented strike and special operation mission capabilities from a stealthy, clandestine platform. Armed with up to 154 tactical missiles and equipped with superior communications capabilities, guided-missile submarines are capable of launching missile strikes and supporting Special Operation Forces (SOF) missions.

Measuring more than 560 feet long and weighing more than 18,000 tons when submerged, Ohio is one of the largest submarines in the world.

Ohio is homeported in Bremerton, Washington and is forward deployed from Guam.
