Submarines & Their

Combat Systems

This course underwent major revi- sion with updated data in July 2004.

It was then formatted as an animated, full-color Power-Point Presentation.

This course presents the fundamental philosophy of submarine design, con- struction, and stability as well as the utilization of submarines as cost- effective warships at sea. A thumbnail history of waging war by coming up from below the surface of the sea relates prior gains-and, prior set- backs. marines_and_combat_systems.htm
