Inside a Submarine

May 2nd 2011 23:20
The strategic advantages of submarines were set out in 1648 by Bishop John Wilkins of Chester, England:

Tis private: a man may thus go to any coast in the world invisibly, without discovery or prevented in his journey.
Tis safe, from the uncertainty of Tides, and the violence of Tempests, which do never move the sea above five or six paces deep. From Pirates and Robbers which do so infest other voyages; from ice and great frost, which do so much endanger the passages towards the Poles.
It may be of great advantages against a Navy of enemies, who by this may be undermined in the water and blown up.

It may be of special use for the relief of any place besieged by water, to convey unto them invisible supplies; and so likewise for the surprisal of any place that is accessible by water.
It may be of unspeakable benefit for submarine experiments.

Submarines were first widely used during World War I (19141918) and now feature in many large navies.

Thanks to Dark Roasted Blend. Here are images from inside various submarines from models dating from World War Two, through the Cold War, to the present day. For more see the article "Cramped Efficiency".
