Uhh....Batfish! Prez Unit Citation, sank 14 enemy vessel including 3 Jap subs in 76 hours! Plus ours is so cool, we don't need no stinkin' water for our boat.  ;D

Oh this should be fun. :2funny:

The type VII U-boat certainly deserves the #1 spot.  She struck more fear to the maritime community than ny other class of submarine.  Seawolf certainly deserves the #2 spot as the most technologically advanced submarine ever.  It is a shame that we aren't building more of them now that China is becoming such a threat.

China has been a threat for a while. The Female Chinese Military is  bigger then the United States population! But at the same time China is cool. They make our toys and shoes. lol

But with their birth rate caps, family limitations, etc, the population of China will most likely drop in the next 50 yrs or so and drop fast.

Ya you gotta love the Batfish for all that she did and what she stands for, kinda sad to see her on blocks you know.... makes me worried that one night a bunch of mad shipyard workers are going to come down and cut her up into honda's, besides they don't need a drydock to do it because it is already out of water :2funny:   Us we would have to be pulled out of the inner harbor and then put in a drydock and as slow as stuff moves in Baltimore I don't think that that will be any time sooon :2funny:
