ABSTRACT
The article presents a comment on the expansion of the submarine as a promising and versatile weapons platform. The author says that at present time, the key capability demanded of a flagship is command and control and not weapons capacity. With the said issue, the author stresses that the submarine and all its advances, remains woefully deficient. Accordingly , stealth, which is still the greatest strength of the silent service, is not compatible with the high-volume telecommunications.
