How would I find out what names are going to be used for up coming Virginia class boats? I see the Virginia class boats are southern states like when the Virginia class cruisers were being built (Virginia, Arkansas, Texas, Mississippi,..).

As i understand it, they are:
774 Virginia- Delivery 2004
775 Texas-Delivery 2005
next at Newport News:
776 Hawaii
777 North Carolina
See undersea warfare link in previous post regarding keel laying of Texas in the current issue.
