LoL i got a kick outta this:

May 30 A U.S. nuclear submarine has taken on some unusual damage during maneuvers.

As the new Seawolf class sub USS Connecticut surfaced in the ice pack between the North Pole and Alaska on April 27, a polar bear chomped on its rudder, then attacked it.

Why is a US submarine in the North Pole anyway?

N.I.A has received a sighting report on OBL. He's hidding, somewhere in the North. Some igloos have already been targeted by cruises missiles & JDAM.

No collateral damages but a seal.


P.S : PETA want to sue the USN.

US and Russian nuclear submarines often patrol the north Arctic regions... For "boomers" (nuclear missle submarines) the Arctic is a perfect launching platform, as it presents an area where thier missles cross the north pole and into the target country in the shortest amount of time, allowing the least warning (as little as 6 minutes flight time depending on your target within the country)

Also, since they can launch thier missles from beneath the ice, it is very difficult for satellites to track them.

Nuclear attack submarines also routinely patrol the arctic, looking for opposing boomers to tail and possibly attack.

Just a clarification. Boomers (Missile Boats) cannot fire their missiles through the ice. They have to find a Poylama (unsure of spelling) which is a thin spot in the ice to surface through. Them they can fire their missiles.

Well yes, but they can fire through a polyarna without surfacing. They have CCTV and special upward looking sonar designed to guage ice thickness just for launch situations.

Im unsure that the Intertial Guidance System on any ICBM could withstand and impact with ice of any thickness. I think it would be ill advised to do this. Besisdes before firing they sub has to at least go to periscope depth for a GPS reading so they can program their exact location into the missiles. Oh sure u can use the subs INS to program the missiles just they want them to be very acurate when u are trying to land on in the middle of a silo field.
