  1. keep in mind that the nuke subs spend all their time hiding and generally being inactive. Even though they are arguably the single most powerful vessels in the world serving on one wouldn't be nearly as interesting as a fast attack sub.

  2. @MrJethroha They can launch Nukes. They can't launch Trident SLBMs, but that's not the point. They can certainly launch tactical nukes in the form of Tomahawks if they ever needed to.

  3. Why can't the US NAVY ever be cleaver with it's Ship and Sub names? NASA was good at it, the Air Force is great at it. The Army? Yep. But the NAVY? They're terrible. "What should we call this ship/sub? Hmmm. How about a state? No, wait. A President."

  4. I don't have to, since I live in Europe, and we don't have to fear anyone(like Russians/Chinese), and that's thanks to the brain and not balls. So I'll just enjoy my nice and peaceful life, without any major fear. Good day to you too, at least we say good day to someone, and not fuck off.

  5. Yes, but in wars that you guys pretty much started 🙂 Of course they are, because from time to time some Russian navy vessel comes too close and needs escort back home. And regarding Russians and Chinese- why the hell do we need to take on them in the first place? We have amazing economical arrangements with both and we don't need war. And Nazis were beaten mostly by the Russians, 75% actually, you guys just helped stopping them from coming to western Europe. Awesome thing to be honest.

  6. Thats where your billions of taxes went, so don't wonder why the country is in debt and the local school can't even supply its own paper due to reduced funds,

  7. Actually… if your looking for a Variety of ports to enter… many overseas Ports do not allow a Nuclear Reactor in their Harbor. THis can exclude LA Class fast attacks, Ohio class boomers and every carrier we have. I know this from experience being in battlegroups crossing the Pacific which included of course a carrier and at least 1 fast attack sub.

  8. According to one of the U.S. Navy’s top submarine officers Rear Adm. Dave Johnson, Naval Sea Systems Command’s program executive officer (PEO) submarines, “We’ll be facing tough potential opponents. One only has to look at the Severodvinsk, Russia’s version of a nuclear guided missile submarine (SSGN). I am so impressed with this ship that I had Carderock build a model from unclassified data."
