    In WWII the US submarine force was less than 2% of the Navy but sank over 50% of Japanese shipping.

    Same vid.

    The Navy loves things that are long, hard and full of Seamen.

    Very cool video. Brought back some memories. I served 6 years in the Nuclear Navy on the USS Snook SSN592, a much older and smaller attack sub. It was a great experience.

    Re: The Largest Submarine in The U.S. Navy

    Ahhh life aboard a sinking sewer pipe. I'm glad I went the route of the Merchant Marines and deal with the surface fleet rather than subs. If only they knew they weren't the only one's that have saturday pizza nights every week to look forward to.. LOL but regardless the SSBN "boomers" such as the penn are the reason we can sleep soundly and I have a lot of respect for the guys that completely disappear for 3 months into the deep blue. (despite how annoying their sonar pings are)

    Man I thought working a 12 hour shift in our watch room was bad. I can't imagine not seeing the light of day for 70+ days. Much respect.

    I doubt the SSBNs ping much. They aren't hunting and don't like to give away their location.

    Love that movie. That's the only Clancy movie that did the book justice.

    no US sub does. I was on a 688 for 4 years and the only time we used active was during games off the US coast and once with the Indian navy to let them know where we were after they couldn't find us. Active will definitively give away your position to another sub and most of the surface fleet so it is avoided and used as a last resort. Fun fact it doesn't make the pinging sound either. It is this odd digital whistling

    My youngest brother was a submariner for 18 years, most of it served of fast attack boats which were on their last missions and headed for decommissioning. He was part of the decomm for 4 boats.

    He always told me "There's two kinds of boats. Submarines....and targets."
