Those nutty Germans, won’t they ever learn?
(BTW, how noisy is a nuclear sub in comparison?)

I dunno how noisy nuke subs are in comparison, but here are the figures for the engines on my ship:
SSTG (Ship’s Service Turbine Generator) â€“ 1750 kw, 3 phase, 60hz, 45vac, 2800amps
EDG (Emergency Diesel Generator) â€“ 1000kw, 3 phase, 60hz, 450vac, 1600amps
Quite a bit more powerful, I’d say. I guess that with the ever-changing conditions of modern warfare, it might be necessary to sacrifice engine power for more stealth.
Better to use the Stirling engines like we swedes are using, in the Gotland a class submarines…
The submarine Gotland has been 1 year in san diego training with your navy. And you have had enormous trouble finding it.
On several occasion it has been able to take photos of yoour carriers at lose range during exercise, witch would mean you had lost it in a real situation…
