Here is footage showing a Russian Navy submarine attacking ISIS positions in Raqqa, Syria by launching missiles from the submarine itself. The Kalibr cruise missiles were launched from the Rostov-on-Don submarine, a Kilo-class diesel electric submarine, in the Mediterranean. It’s the first time Russia had launched…
Learning to control a submarine is not straightforward. But these days, the Navy doesn’t need to build as many large-scale physical simulators—because much of it can be achieved on-screen.
Yachts are for chumps. People who really know how to spend their money get submersible yachts from Migaloo, a mysterious company that offers five different models of underwater palaces. But true evil villains just go for the Migaloo’s crown jewel: Kokomo Ailand.
The idea to build a plane that turns into a submarine is not new. However, the mission to build an unmanned variation of such a vehicle is rather 21st-century. Boeing actually already has a design ready.
Do you remember doodling what your perfect car would look like when you were six years old? There's a good chance it looked exactly like this amphibious tank-treaded ATV that Hammacher Schlemmer is now selling for the princely sum of $300,000.
If we're ever going to explore the only celestial body in our solar system with surface bodies of liquid, we're going to need a sea-worthy vehicle. Luckily, NASA is all over the niche space submarine market.
If you ever find yourself staring out at the sea, thinking, "Holy shit, I have way too much money. I should blow some of it on a personal submarine," the Deepflight Super Falcon Mark II is here to part you from that troublesome cash.
Impressive photo of the giant tubes that house four of the 24 Trident II D5 Submarine Launched Ballistic Missiles (SLBM) carried by Ohio-class nuclear submarines. 14 of these submarines travel for months underwater, carrying fifty percent of all the active thermonuclear warheads in the US arsenal.
The size and thickness of the Antarctic ice sheet acts as a barometer for global health but figuring out exactly how much frozen water is sitting atop the southern pole is difficult. Satellite results are often obscured by layers of snow and ice core boring requires people to brave the extreme cold to collect them.…
Looks like North Korea's engineers have been hard at work brushing up on their obsolete Soviet-era technology. Because after acquiring 10 discontinued Soviet subs, everyone's favorite little warmongering-dictatorship-that-could has finally rendered the outdated ballistic vessels seaworthy—and it only took them 21…
After five years of construction, the newest submarine in the US fleet is ready to set sail. But this Virginia-class sub is not like the others—it's far more deadly and way less expensive to operate.
The Axis war effort throughout the first half of the 1940s led to some incredible advances in submarine technology. That includes the anaerobic Walter turbine—a newfangled engine that didn't need oxygen to work. Even more incredible, these discoveries were not entirely new, but in fact more than 60 years old—the…
America's isn't the only military to rely on heavy-lift transport vessels, the unusual class of utility ship that helped ferry the crippled USS Cole home for repairs. Russia has just released a series of photos documenting the slow return trip to the Zvezdochka shipyard for a pair of its Akula II-class submarines, the
Russia isn't the only nation launching a nuclear sub hunter after two decades of development. The UK recently rolled the third of seven £1 billion Astute Class nuclear submarines, the HMS Artful, out of its cavernous dry dock for a year of demanding sea trials and a quarter century of service beneath the seas.
After more than two decades in development, Russia has finally inducted its newest submarine into the Northern Fleet—a massive nuclear-powered submarine hunter christened the Severodvinsk. Better late than never, I guess.
We take GPS so much for granted on land that it's easy to forget where GPS doesn't work—like deep underwater, where only strange sea creatures and submarines roam. Enter the bizarre new world of quantum positioning, where supercooled atoms could be the future of navigation.
On the modern high seas, raising your submarine's periscope at the wrong time is just as bad as raising a flag with a target on it. But thanks to a new optical suite developed by Israel's Technion Institute of Technology, tomorrow's subs will only ever have to break waves when in port.
In 1864, three years after the onset of the American Civil War, an ingenious new form of seafaring combat vessel ventured into the dark waters of Charleston Harbor and into the annals of history. Now researchers and historians are finally ready to begin piecing together what happened to the HL Hunley that fateful…
