The D-class submarines were a class of three United States Navy submarines, built by the Fore River Shipbuilding Company of Quincy, Massachusetts, under a subcontract from the Electric Boat Company of Groton, Connecticut. All three ships served during World War I providing training for crews and officers, before the class was decommissioned, and sold for scrap in 1922.
