The upper bow unit of the future aircraft carrier USS John F. Kennedy (CVN 79) is fitted to the primary structure of the ship, July 10, 2019, at Huntington Ingalls Industries Newport News Shipbuilding. John F. Kennedy is the second Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carrier and the second aircraft carrier to be named after the 35th president. The 1,096-foot hull is longer than three football fields and more than 3,000 shipbuilders and 2,000 suppliers from across the country are supporting the construction of the ship. The christening for John F. Kennedy is scheduled for late 2019.

Not much is known about this class of submarine and in fact few pictures have surfaced of her (pardon the pun), but what we do know is only one submarine was ever built of this project she was the BC-555.
From what I have been told about this submarine by a Former Russian Navy Officer she was designed to be a support submarine that was capable of being the mother vessel to deep sea divers operating at depths of around 300-320 meters, she was purpose built with hypobaric chambers and pressure systems to pressurize the submarine while dived to allow for saturation diving and all the associated support divers require.
The BC-555 was laid down in October 1977, Launched in August 1978 and following trails she commissioned in December 1979.
She was tested in the Baltic however her home port was Sevastopol Crimea, unlike the usual transits which see the unit sail to its new home port this was different, clearly the Soviets did not want her spotted or followed, so instead of the usual transit through the Mediterranean she was transported by covered barge via inland waterways.
Now bear in mind this boat was large almost as big as the Foxtrot and Tango classes she was 86 meters long 9.5m wide and displaced some 2,500tons when submerged (2,000tons surfaced).
She had a crew of 42 not including the divers, its clear her top casing is completely flat kind of giving us a clue that she was used in that role, and quite possibly also used for testing other technologies as well.
The BC-555 was withdrawn from service in 1993 and scrapped in St Petersburg between 1997-98

USN:
For over a century the Inactive Ships Basin at Philadelphia Naval Shipyard was at times stuffed with laid-up, mothballed ships - known in recent decades as Mobilization Category B, or "MobCat B." Ships that were stricken for disposal - Mobilization Category Z - typically remained in the basin until towed away for disposal after demilitarization work had been done at the facility. While a visitor might get the impression the ships just sit in the same spot awaiting their fate, the Inactive Ships Maintenance Facility routinely moves many of them around for all sorts of reasons. Here are a few shots of the destroyer and frigate nests at Philly from 1992, 1993 and 1994. Most of these ships are DDG 2 Charles F Adams-class and DDG 40 Coontz-class destroyers and FF 1052 Knox-class frigates.
