The Navy's Greatest Mistake: They Stopped Building the 'F-22' of Submarines

The submarines were designed to be true hunters, and as a result have eight torpedo tubes, double the number of earlier submarines. It has stores for up a combination of up to fifty Mark 48 heavyweight torpedoes, Sub-Harpoon anti ship missiles, and Tomahawk missiles. Alternatively, it can substitute some of this ordnance for mines. The resulting submarine is according to the U.S. Navy ten times quieter over the full range of operating speeds than the Improved Los Angeles submarines, and an astonishing seventy times quieter than the original Los Angeles–class submarines. It can run quiet at twice the speed of previous boats. http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/the-navys-greatest-mistake-they-stopped-building-the-f-22-23931

    1. 1. Do you believe a higher operational tempo worldwide is contributing to more accidents at sea?
