At random: Records for enemy shipping sunk by U.S. submarines during World War II are held by two boats built by Electric Boat. The USS FLASHER sank 100,231 tons of Japanese shipping, while the USS TAUTOG holds the record for the most ships - 26.

Subject: Let's discuss what's going on the technology of the newer boats

I've been reading up on current boat technology and the stampede of nations into submarines. The future is going to be very interesting when you can't go to sea without bumping into a thousand new nukes, AIPs and used boats. Touring current new US boats, meetings with the USSVI, and attending lectures at Naval Submarine League meetings has put the fear of God in me. Why in the living Hell are we cutting back when we should be flooding the seas with our fleet?

Sharkey,

Typically the bottom line is ..... return for the money invested. Not that I agree, as I believe this is a "short term" view. And, when you are talking about maintaining a fleet which gives the US a multi-ocean dominance or even parity, it is a very expensive proposition.
