Re: Nuclear s(n)ubs

scratchee, I'll bet that when you use civilian airfields incommunicado with all those civiian aircraft...you were talking to a control tower and you really WERE in communication with those civilians, through the tower.

Not at all the same as running a sub deaf and blind in a world of civilian ships, commercial and recreational alike, with no controller and no other communications. If they were running without a VHF radio watch...that could be seen as gross negligence.

Of course there's a Press Office that might be able to comment on this, but considering that everything that has anything to do with a nuclear submarine is classified (or should be) I wouldn't expect a fast reply.
