    Stealth: Raft Mountings in submarines
    In submarine warfare stealth means quietness. During much of the Cold War US and British submarines had a material advantage over their Russian counterparts because of the attention paid to quieting. One of the ways this is achieved is by mounting machinery on noise-absorbent materials to prevent noise being transferred to the hull and from there into the water around the boat – this is termed raft mounting...

    New info on Pr-09852 Belgorod submarine and Arctic plans
    Flag Less than a week after Russia unveiled its new arctic base on Alexandra Island in the Arctic Circle, Russian media have begun reporting on the future launch of the Project 09852 Belgorod submarine. The headline fact is that she will be the largest (or at least o=longest) submarine in in the world, at 184m. This is thanks to a 30m hull insert which allows her to accommodate the relatively large Losharik deep sea submersible (AGS). However, her size isn’t the real headline here….

    North Korean Navy threat to USS Carl Vinson's Strike Group

  7. USN_Diesel-Sub

    An independent case for the US Navy to return to diesel-electric submarines
    Opinion piece with a ronin research approach - Alternative title Diesel Boats forever tomorrow
    Flag With nearly 80 submarines, the US Navy is without question the most powerful submarine force on the planet. Since the late 1950s US Navy submarine building has been almost exclusively focused on nuclear powered designs. The last diesel powered front line boat was decommissioned in 1990. Since then there have been several voices calling for the Submarine Force to have at least some diesel-boats on hand. This article takes the form of ronin research which is masterless, and therefore free to challenge the conventional thinking on this topic, and highlight emerging capabilities which are beyond the scope of current planning...

The improvised weapons appear to be of the floating type with contact detonators. Although they appear basic, they are a significant threat to merchant shipping using the busy Red Sea route...
