Place for general submarine conversation

I just stumbled upon a new shot of the new Virginia class. It's a tight shot but stil of interest to modellers of SSN-774. It's the PCU crew posing in front of the stern. Part of the stern plane and dihedral can be seen.

Thank you Bob! It illuminates something I have been wondering about. :)

Related somewhat, here is a article about 'Smart Duct' quiet steering control related to pump jets. 'Very interesting!'

Thanks Steve,

Very interesting article. I recall seeing that on a SubCommittee members sub (a french SSBN I think) and I wondered if that would ever be considered for 1:1 scale.
