Control Room USS North Carolina

Postby Tom Dougherty » Tue Mar 13, 2012 7:22 pm

Virginia class Control Room video. Mostly focused on tracking systems and computing power:

Note that they are wearing the new Navy Camo uniforms. Not quite sure what the point of camo is onboard a submarine...
and even in the extremely unlikely event that there were hostile boarders, shouldn't the camo have pipe runs, valves & gauges rather than random camo so you could "blend in" with the background....just a thought

You know Tom I asked one of the top side watches a while back why they wore camo since there wasn't a bush or tree within 100 yards of the boat, back when it was the old style and he jokingly told me so the snipers across the river knew who to shoot. :roll:
