Question about Los Angeles class boats

Postby RavenVV » Thu Nov 29, 2007 9:26 pm

I have a question is there / was there a t Los Angeles class boat with a pumpjet? I herd some were that the one of the last la boats 772 or 773 was build with a pumpjet propulsor. As a test bed for the Seawolf class.

Thanks

Short answer... yes.

Interestingly enough, if you go back to the early days of the Cold War, there was a prototype (paper exercise only) Fleetboat conversion that would have had a pumpjet.
