Subs in the arctic


  1. On the boats with sail mounted dive planes, the planes were turned vertical when they were going through ice. The later Los Angeles class and the Virginia class boats have the dive planes back on the bow.

  2. Been there and done that. Sturgeon class fast attack boat.,1982. I have my blue nose card somewhere.

  3. Recently I re-watched Das Boot. I really don't think I'd care for life on a sub, even if it isn't being depth-bombed & shot at.

    Not even now, when they do cool stuff & the crew are of mixed sexes. Oh sorry, I meant "gendersplendiferous" or whatever the correct terminology is!
