      Well, peacetime subs and war are two different creatures. In peace, with the right crew and the right provisions, sub service is like spending all your time in a Tokyo micro-hotel. During war, though, there was no more arduous and perilous duty than being in the sub service. The Axis losses in subs were staggering; finding volunteers was never easy given the facts...

    6. Nimal Anand

      I feel like being in a submarine like inside a capsule suffocating for fresh air .I think it might be hard

      Why don’t subs have windows so they can see out of instead of crashing g

      I enjoy your video, but putting Poland on list countries operating submarines it's funny.. We had 2 submarines Kobben Type build in 60' and one post soviet 877E build 86'.. now we don't have any submarines 🤭 even 2y ago none of those ships has any combat value.

      Where is Pavel and toreador. He forgot to mention that Pavel will call u kapitan and he also forgot to say its on warstock.

    48. Seawolf

      I counted 4 inaccuracies in this video. However, this is excusable because you pronounce submariner correctly.

    49. Anonymous

      Imagine having a sauna on submarine lol

    50. Social Hub

      Pakistan turkey also hv Submarines

    51. winsome williams

      We. Also don't have any other submarine?

    52. FootPlaysStuff

      One documentary said you could literally line an entire submarine with C4 and blow it sky high and the nuclear weapons would still NOT pose a threat. Need a very specific series of electrical events to arm one of those bad boys

    53. FootPlaysStuff

      ONE missile has 12 nuclear warheads?


      This is an awesome and educational video on how and why submarines exist. Anytime I watch something about submarines with nuclear capabilities, I can't help but to think about Stanislov Petrov, the man who is credited for saving the world from a nuclear disaster on a Russian submarine back in 1983.

      war between countries has nothing to with the people of the countries, its just war between a couple of people and they want to destroy earth for their stupid fights. its just a fight between 2 rich people with very dangerous and high tech toys. they also talk as if the people of the country want war and destruction. bunch of idiots,just fist fight it out or do a 1v1 plz dont destroy our lifes and our future.

      weapons only detonate with a set sequence of actions within the weapon , a sub can blow up or hit the ground with huge force and the weapons wouldn't explode.

      Apparently a Russian man that calls you Kapitan is all you need to run a sub

      I can remember extended deployments where every passage way, every spare square foot of space was packed with extra food and supplies. We were under for a long long time. It’s actually a secret how long we stayed under, but we passed the 77 day mark and kept going. Ah to be young again...

      Pakistan also operates 2 French Agosta-class, nuclear capable submarines. You missed that.

    88. Dennis Watson

      You found out all this incredible information, but did not learn how to pronounce submariner. 😭

    89. troll face

      Just a heads up, if those subs had been damaged, the nuclear warheads would not have gone off. They have dozens of failsafes that prevent accidental, malicious, or damage caused detonations. It would take the EXACT procedure needed to launch one to make them detonate for any purpose. Because of this, it's significantly more reliable for another country to build their own nuclear weapons instead of trying to detonate an enemy's nukes where they stand.

      Typhoon class submarines are the largest submarines not Ohio class.

    97. MOON LIGHT

      sub don't only just have active sonar they also use passive, which is very classified, and how it fully works is not publicly known. watch smartereveryday's sub video if you want to know more about it.
