While in college I was crazy about nuclear attack submarines… could spend hours wasting my time in submarine simulators…

Knew all the existing classes of submarines operating in both western and eastern navies… from attack subs to boomers… and even the ultra quiet, coastal defense, diesel electric submarines… even the first generation Nautilus and it’s counterpart, the November class (NATO designate) submarine in the Soviet bloc…

Could even spend hours talking about the intricacies of how a nuclear reactor works to anybody who cared to listen…

I suddenly felt like posting about that… like confessing to a priest *snicker*

    @Dom

    Yup, but I prefered Red Storm Rising because I found 688 too slow.

    @shadow

    Sorry but was out this afternoon hence was unable to blog the game.

    such a unique interest considering that we barely have any in the phils. ^^ or do we have lots? no idea at all hehehe ^^

    when were you first introduced to subs? ^^

    The Philippines has no submarine fleet… good too because with the maritime track record of the Philippines I wouldn’t recommend it… hehehe

    Only a fool would go out to sea in a ship that was designed to sink.

    Same as the Airborne then, who like to jump out of perfectly functioning airplanes *snicker*

    Hi shadow,

    Sorry but I couldn’t cover the game yesterday too because of other stuff I had to do.
