    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    usually it's diesels that pull that off, the Gotland being one of the more famous ones.

    Nuclear subs are loud in comparison, marking it fairly impressive.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    The Rubis class are fucking teeeeny. Half the tonnage of a Trafalgar and something like a third that of a Los Angeles or Astute class. It's not the first time they've done this.

    From my understanding, its that the sub's diesel engines can be shut off and run completely from battery power. Whereas a nuclear sub always has shit running to keep the reactor cool.

    They also tend to be significantly larger making it harder to find pockets of different saline levels or temperature where you can throw the scent off.

    The Gotland class doesnt have to rely on batteries though. Their Stirling engines are extremely quiet giving them a lot more options when it comes to sneaking up on someone.

    Literally the only time Razor would go for something more modern over an old diesel engine is when Russia actually has the former.
