HONOLULU (KHNL) -  A decommissioned submarine named for Minnesota's twin cities will be taken to Pearl Harbor and scrapped.

The Minneapolis-St. Paul is a nuclear-powered attack submarine, built in 1984.  The Los Angeles class sub was deactivated because it would have required expensive upgrades. 

During its service, the 360-foot-long ship visited 26 different ports and was involved in 12 deployments.  The most recent was a six-month stint in the North Atlantic.
