|Let's face it - a carrier battle group can't sneak up on anybody, but an Ohio can pop up and say hello at any place, any time.
With UAV capabilities rapidly expanding how fun would it be to have a submersible UAV carrier?
The UAVs would be launched vertically and would 'splash down' via parachute and then recovered, possibly with the sub still submerged.
small, high endurance craft with Viper strike precision munitions can make a mess of C3i installations and cars full of bad guys. SDB glide bombs can do a whole lot more.
THink mini-CAS for special ops.
