The Becuna, a New London, CT, built submarine is credited with sinking 3 Japanese merchant ships during World War II during its five wartime patrols. Launched in 1944, the sub was retrofitted with sophisticated radar and torpedo equipment including nuclear warheads. She is currently the only Guppy 1-A submarine on display. Post World War II, the Becuna was used on eavesdropping missions to trail Soviet submarines. She also served in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic during the Korean and Vietnam Wars and ended her long and distinguished career as a training submarine. The Becuna was decommissioned in 1969 and has been part of Independence Seaport Museum's Historic Ship Zone since 1996. Becuna is a National Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
