Okay, here is one you may have to think about.

What was the first U.S. submarine to feature the capability of launching a ballistic missile while submerged?

Before you even get started, it is not the USS George Washington (SSBN-598)!!

I believe that the SUBROC was the first underwater launched SLBM (Submarine Launched Ballistic Missile) and USS Permit (SSN-594) participated in a thorough evaluation of the SUBROC missile, and on 28 March, became the first submarine to successfully fire one.
