USS Michigan (SSBN-727/SSGN-727) is an Ohio-class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine that has been converted into a guided missile submarine and is part of the United States Navy. It is the third ship to bear the name of the state of Michigan.

On 12 December 2009, Michigan returned to Naval Base Kitsap, her home base, completing her first deployment after the SSGN conversion. The deployment began 10 November 2008, and included numerous missions. The ship also completed several theater security cooperation engagements with Pacific Rim nations.[5]

On 28 June 2010, Michigan was one of three Ohio-class submarines involved in a US response to Chinese missile testing in the contested East China Sea. Michigan, Ohio, and Florida all surfaced simultaneously in the waters of South Korea, the Philippines, and the British Indian Ocean Territory respectively.[6][7]

On 25 April 2017, Michigan docked in Busan, South Korea, during a time of heightened tensions with North Korea. It later joined the USS Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group in the Sea of Japan for exercises.[8] Photographs show a dry deck shelter mounted on Michigan.
