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...

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.

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.
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.
