    The U.S. has built the greatest submarine on Earth.

    Take the most silent and deadly attack submarine from the Cold War, the US Los Angelas class, and design a next generation capable of defeating them together singlehandedly.

    Grant this boat a massive torpedo and missile loadout capable of taking on any modern surface naval battle fleet singlehandedly.

    Know that attack subs alone rule the ocean. No blue water surface or carrier fleet in the world can survive in hostile waters without their own complement of screening attack subs.

    Allow that non-U.S. submarine designs in the world effectively ceased from ever trying to reach L.A. class quality anyway. Know this new class will pick off any concievable screen of attack subs with ease and close in for the kill regardless.

    Let this master of the sea also have a score of land attack cruise missles ... so that it can mock the land as King of the Sea.

    Build not one but two of these, and christen them the Seawolf class. Let any other fleet dare to sail against them.


    Then give them a God


    Smarter (advanced digital communication mast), craftier (manuevering devices for precise underwater espionage), and 100 feet longer, HELL YAH BEYATCH!


    A sub every bit as dominating the open ocean, but also ready to break out a crew of 50 special forces from all forms of craft to unleash a can of whoopass and nobody will have a clue what hit them and from where it came from.

    The sea shall worship and the land quiver in fear of the all-mighty gleaming titanium hull which now lurks the Earth's ocean for the US Navy.

    What name shall awe our friends and horrify our enemies?



    Let this champion be know as the USS Jimmy Carter!!! :wank:

    Sure, so Carter cut his teeth on subs in the Navy before he became president.

    Now if you ask me, "James Carter" is a fearsome name and quite presidential sounding, but but Jimmy pretty much insisted on his name as in fact "Jimmy Carter". A name that certainly fits legacy.

    I can see it now, "Oh dear", the Iranians are saying, here comes the new 'Jimmy Carter' boat to our waters... ooooooh.... ... we're sooo scared America!

    On a deeper level, the thought of good old Jimmy every time the boat (perhaps after Bush re-election) deploys to their coastline and beats the hell out of their oil terminals and cuts their shipping to zero is entirely satisfactory. What better way to put things right with our former Presidents' legacy?


    On the other hand it only takes one bungled operation from the start to put a hex the crew of the rig, given the special forces' own hostage rescue attempt under Carter himself. But I highly doubt our nations' finest would even blink twice at their own mission based upon superstition. These will indeed be our finest.

    In any case Heeeeeere's Jimmy!


    Way to kick ass US NAVY! :clap:



    (Oops... no offence to our Jimmy... he's more of the kind of spirit in the W.O.T. this sub represents than Carter ever pretended.)

    A fitting name, IMO. Carter was an Annapolis grad, and he was a submariner, and he is a former President. I agree that James Carter is probably more "mature" a name, but if he went by Jimmy, then I guess that's appropriate too! :D

    How many "little liver pills" can it fire per minute?

    Are you talking harpoons, tomahawks, or torpedoes?

    As far as missiles go they can be programmed and launched as a massive salvo... up to at least 24 of either type are set to launch together without the Seawolf surfacing. Nor will it's lauch ever e in any reasonable detection range of the platform itself.


    The advanced passive sonar range of the latest US Navy generation is well beyond any other country.


    Land attack missions are designated via GPS coordinates which this bad boy will hit from afar and without any risk of counter fire. Tomahawks in stock are nuclear tipped, and stocked aboard as needed.


    The torpedoes, on the other hand, would usually be launched and guided by wire independently. Such an attack would come come from various bearings and depths which would vary from the actual platforms' position.


    In other words, whatever attack is made the position of the sub itself is secure from any counterattack.


    Passive sonar technology developed by the US navy exceeded the USSR from the early eighties, and any Seawolf class in the water will know well in advance where any naval vessel of today is before it will itself be even remotely detected.

    Knowing the enemy fleet position well in advance, the Seawolf can silently and quickly set up for an attack.

    From a standoff position over 40 torpedoes could be launched without detection at a rate of at least twice per minute, and each and every one could be set up at a slow, undetectable speed to be in position for a deadly sprint to its target, and the opportune moment. One could activate its own active homing sonar and provide a view of the entire convoy to the rest of the passive torpedoes.... all guided from the submerged and invisible Seawolf platform.

    The US Navy owns the ocean with these bad boys.
