Let's start talking and posting about what we have, as little as we know, it's advanced and very top secret.
And not all the propaganda BS that our enemy's do. That some members here buy into.

Isn't she a beauty. We should be very proud. She doesn't even need a parascope. I only brag on our stuff.
Not what some other poster brags about what our enemy's are saying about they're stuff.
Iran, meet my new little friend lol

Wow. That thing is huge. You don't realize how big they are without something else in the picture for reference. People look like ants.

Aim small, miss small!!!

Other daughter is joining the Navy. She really wants this. So far so good they want her.
I'm sure she won't get submarines.

The one I was on was a Forrestal class. Back then I thought the JFK was a big one, a lot bigger than us.
Mike love to see the Ford but I know that will never happen. Where does the Ford dock? Heck we were
outgrowing the docks at Norfolk and San Diego way back then.

Smile i knew three former

submariners and they all said they would serve on subs again without hesitation.

i went aboard an old diesel sub that the navy opened for tours while it was docked in san diego...it takes a special sailor to serve on submarines IMO...i salute them.

lead, follow, or get out of the way!

dcw, maybe you can answer this. Why are there two USS North Dakota submarines? The. SSN 784 and the
SSN 790.They are both Virginia class. But I still bet this had some liberal heads exploding lol. They seem to
be very proud of they're namesake heritage.

Never mind I found it on military news, that reporter I first got this from on CNN had it wrong.
790 is the South Dakota. 784 is the North Dakota. My fault I should have followed up more closely.
