Interesting article...

Diesel subs are smaller, stealthier and more maneuverable in tight spaces than nuclear submarines. For example, unlike a nuclear submarine's power plant, a diesel's primary engine can be turned off when submerged, reducing noise emission. Indeed, unlike a nuclear-powered submarine, a modern diesel can hide on the ocean's floor, deadly silent, while monitoring whatever passes over and around

I agree, but it'll never happen.  So many other countries have NICE diesel subs.

Finally diesels get some good recongition..and lance is right...my question is..didnt they convert subs from diesels to nuclear to save feul..or was it for another reason....
and also..alot of countrys have NICE DIESELS..and some COUNTRYS have old diesels as well...like the razorback was in turkish navy till 2001..
