Nuke-powered USS Michigan made public
May 2, BUSAN, South Korea -- Seen here are torpedoes installed at the U.S. nuclear-powered submarine USS Michigan, which made a port visit to South Korea's largest port city of Busan on April 30. The USS Michigan, one of the largest submarines in the world, was disclosed to South Korean reporters on May 2. (Yonhap)
Turn right to 3.1.5.
I am very impressed how ship shape and clean this boat is inside. The crew is similarly sharp. Our USN is doing a great job and is a key part of our protection, security and offensive capability.
Good point, "Hey Kim, look what just popped up out of the water in range of your funny hair, a sub with 150 Tomahawk cruise missiles, as much as an entire battle group."
I hear they have SpecOps ability as well, and can launch UAVs. Sweet.
With 150 crew aboard, I bet the bunks never get cold.
Customer: A slightly used Submarine that includes a 42” Flat Screen TV and all the options.
Rick: I can give you $500, cash. $100 Dollar Bills.
Customer: Is that the best you can do?
Rick: It could take me years to sell and it will take up a lot of room in the store.
Customer: Well. OK. I was hoping for more, but hey, it was a gift from my Brother Barack Obama.
Rick: Chumley, write him up.
Combat tactics, so that’s it?
This is a fast attack boat rather than a boomer, highly classified nonetheless. You can be quite sure that anything of any intelligence value was carefully covered up during the tour and photo session.
It’s an Ohio class boomer converted to fire Tomahawks by stuffing seven down each of 22 tubes, the other two left over for SpecOps purposes.
That little boat would get real crowded, real quick.
I can envision you at an air show, pompously telling all who will listen as a P-38 goes by...."now that's a B-52 medium bomber, you can tell because it only has two jets."
Paddle steamer (1843 - the first iron-hulled ship in the US Navy.)
Battleship Michigan (1910 - BB-27)
I was in Holy Loch Scotland on a 616 Class SSBN about the time the Ohio class boats were coming out. The Squdron Training Officer was eating lunch with the captain and they were discussing the new SSBNs.
Cmdr XYZ was describing the boats, the improvements etc. but then he made a statement that scared me:
.... but Jim with so few people and such a big ship, how are they going to keep it clean?
My first patrol I was given RC Division (instruments etc) and on the first inspection I of course persented our level. The Captain got down on his hands and knees and reached way back into a panel and his white glove came out dirty. The look that followed.....
I complained to the RC Div Chief
The Chief complained to the RC DIV LPO (who was 1st Class)
The 3rd Class PO made sure it didn't happen again.
Friday mornings were Field Day
Ain’t no chief gonna be standing watch on the dive planes.....
Thanks for the information. I stand corrected.
If I were to say how I envision you, I'd be banned. It just ain't worth it.
And all of them with a 'North of the 38th' as a delivery address.
Say away, Mr. Sub Expert.
By the way, the next time you want to expound on "fast attack" boats, you might wanna study a little bit....just a little.
Look up US sub nomenclature and how they are named....notice which ones are named for states.
