This video is amazing! I could not believe the size of the sub! At 1:25 min it gets good.



ARCTIC CIRCLE (NNS) — Two Los Angeles-class submarines arrived at U.S. Navy Ice Camp Sargo, a temporary station on top of a floating ice sheet in the Arctic as part of Ice Exercise (ICEX) 2016.

The team on the ice is seen using a Stil chainsaw cutting away the ice for the hatch to open. The two guys on the sail or fairwater are removing chunks of ice.

That's awesome, I love the eerie sound it makes breaking the ice.

One thing that's always puzzled me though, is there a reason for Subs being painted black ?

Stealth is the reason modern subs are black. I think WWII subs were gray. Also the sonar signal do not bounce off the black paint as well. Conventional powered submarines typically followed a schedule to run surfaced at night to recharge batteries, black is the ideal camouflage when it's dark.

Submarines are painted black when they don't want to be seen and yellow when they do want to be seen.

I believe that that stuff is the anoechoic coating that helps to break up echo returns from bad guy sonar...

I wonder what the maximum ice thickness these subs are able to punch through?

We has a winner. It also helps to deaden internal sounds such as plant noise.

Would that be why it looks like a patchwork quilt? The tower is lots of small plates all welded (riveted?) together.

A modern submarine can only surface from under ice cover less than 6 feet thick,. One should also bear in mind that more than 60 percent of the Arctic ice sheet is thicker than 10 feet thick.

Thanks. The sailor who opened the hatch in short sleeves must have got one heck of an instant chill.

Bears. They've been known to come up and chew on the boats. There's a great periscope video of one chewing on them.
