I don't think the US should use "large" diesel or AIP subs, like other countries, instead they should use smaller subs carrier on the back of nuclear SSN. When SSN comes close to the coastal waters the AIP sub would take over the brown water mission. Also the small AIP sub can return to nuclear sub to recharge batteries/power cells.
