USS Hartford (SSN-768), a Los Angeles-class submarine, is the second ship of the Navy to be named for Hartford, Connecticut. She was launched on 4 December 1993 and commissioned on 10 December 1994.

The Los Angeles class is powered by the General Electric S6G pressurized water reactor. The submarine has a diesel generator and a bank of batteries to provide electrical power. An emergency propulsion motor on the shaft line or a retractable 325-hp secondary propulsion motor power the submarine off the battery or diesel generator.

The submarine can reach a surfaced speed of 20 knots (23 mph; 37 km/h) and 20 knots (23 mph; 37 km/h) in submerged conditions.

Los Angeles-class submarines carry about 25 torpedo tube-launched weapons, as well as Mark 67 and Mark 60 CAPTOR mines and were designed to launch Tomahawk cruise missiles, and Harpoon missiles horizontally (from the torpedo tubes). The last 31 boats of this class (Flight II/688i) also have 12 dedicated vertical launching system tubes for launching Tomahawks.
