look at everything sticking out of it though like there radar plus the windows, all of that would reflect radar.
Agree with TheScale here. I have worked on submarines and aircraft carriers as well. I know what is and is not stealthy. Protruding Antennas are kept
to a minimum as they can give one away.not only visually but to electronic sensors as well.
This boat is laughable. IT is a demonstator at best. To show that the world now needs to respect them. THey can play in the sandbox now with the big
To stabilize a boat or ship in rough seas requires that one be able to change the draft. How much water the boat can take on to lower its profile
above water...and stabilize it. THere are limits on this of course..Hull shape and design has a lot to do with it as well.
Modern submarines dot not run well on rough surface water and sailors and crew often get seasick. Below 100 foot down they tend to stabilize out and
depending on the roughness of the sea surface, they may need to go deeper for stability.
Crews tend to like it better when they go to operational depth on patrols rather than running on the surface.
Submarines are the ultiimate sea going stealth vessel and they have been around for a long long time. Nothing new here.
There are Submarines and there are Targets......
