However, as soon as a submarine emerges, its stealth is compromised, especially in today’s era of satellite surveillance.
Submarines must be able to stay underwater for lengthy periods of time in order to go undersea on one side of the planet and travel unnoticed to the other.
Of fact, nearly all ballistic missile-
in the world are nuclear-
powered, giving th
em essentially infinite range.
The reactor cores of these ships only need to be replaced every few decades.
Furthermore, most submarines are equipped with oxygen generators and desalinates, therefore, like nuclear-
aft carriers, the only thing limiting their deployment time is their food supply.
