Does anyone know the most current color scheme for the LA flight 3 class of boats?

Current color scheme is all black hull with flat black masts and the antenna portion of the bra/hdr masts are gunship grey

When surfaced, the bridge access hatch can be optionally open or shut, however, when submerged it is required to be shut. (Really a no s***t precaution from a procedure in use in the sub fleet today.)

Nope, Not since the mid nineties. I was working in the mast repair shop in 95-97 when they told use to start painting them flat black and not grey with black spots. apparently it wasn't an effective camoflauge.
