Cold War-era submarine tours

Good morning all,

Per title.

Without defeating the purpose of my posting this article for research into this era's history, are not the "sleek nuclear powered behemoths..." soon to also be of a "bygone era" ?

Drones are the big topic of discussion.

Most submarines are not nuclear missile launching pads. Most are attack boats. Follow the drone discussions - especially when the costs are discussed.

Article has a reference to Betty Grable.

Note the reference to "Historic Naval Ships Association".

Truthfully, the USS Requin is a Tench class WW2-era submarine, slightly modified a few times over the years. W/o the her final modification being to a Fleet Snorkel submarine in the early 50's.

We had 3 Soviet diesel boats here in the US at one time. One sank and was scrapped, one closed and will likely be scrapped, and one remains open to the public.
