Interesting looking first look…
I have no words
@Mbot gotta see this
Oh boy! Fingers crossed.
Call of Subs: MNW
Definitely liking what I see in the demo. How well they handle the sonar and TMA will be the telling issue.
It looks similar to the control room of HMS Ambush, Astute class SSN. I visited her at Faslane three years ago. The video in the link includes the control room.
You are full of surprises. Its like you are living my bucket list @ScoopD
I swam off HMS Onyx in '81 while she was submerged. Not a recommended experience.
From an outside and layman’s perspective THAT IS BEYOND COOL.
My mums a diving instructor and used to train police and navy in sport diving techniques and she trained me. She was offered to swim out of a sub (i have it in my head it was Trafalger but that might be grossly inaccurate) and I told her in no uncertain terms if it happened without me I wouldn’t speak to her for a long time. It never materialised anyway so no need to disown mother lol
You should consider joining the Royal Institute of Navigation. I would be happy to sponsor you despite having experienced your navigation technique! Among other things membership has got me aboard HMS Illustrious, HMS Ambush and HMS Queen Elzabeth. There were other nautical and aviation opportunities that I could not get to. Or I could just let you know but places are usually tight. I only got onto the QE at the last minute.

I keep meaning to join. I will do that on payday. Besides they could learn a lot from my techniques. “Pinball navigation” is the method I am working on. It requires EPIC fuel reserves.
Victork2 knows where he is at all times. He knows this because he knows where he isn’t. By subtracting where he is from where he isn’t, or where he isn’t from where he is (whichever is greater), he obtains a difference, or deviation. He then uses deviations to generate a course to drive the aircraft from a position where he is to a position where he isn’t, and arriving at a position where he wasn’t, he now is. Consequently, the position where he is, is now the position that he wasn’t, and it follows that the position that he was, is now the position that he isn’t.
In the event that the position that he is in is not the position that he wasn’t, he has acquired a variation, the variation being the difference between where Victork2 is, and where he wasn’t. If variation is considered to be a significant factor, it too may be corrected but only if VictorK2 also knows where he was.
Because a variation has modified some of the information VictorK2 has obtained, he is not sure just where he is. However, he is sure where he isn’t, within reason, and he knows where he was. He now subtracts where he should be from where he wasn’t, or vice-versa, and by differentiating this from the algebraic sum of where he shouldn’t be, and where he was, he is able to obtain the deviation and its variation, which is called error.
Post. Of. The . Year.
I’m basically an amraam missile. Lol
Think thats taken from a cruise missile USAF audio
I knew it was some form of guidance lol. You can refer to me as tomahawk from now on
Also much the same how SSN and SSBNs navigate
I love this.
And to think they call those smart munitions. .. snorts derisively..
very cool, thanks for the headsup!
