    Development of the Submarine Throughout history, navies have made significant impacts in the technological development of human kind. These impacts range from improvements in metal technologies made while perfecting the cannon to the advent of cybernetics, which allowed more precise targeting of weaponry. One of the more sophisticated developments in naval history has been the invention of the submarine. The submarine was born in 1620 as a leather-covered rowboat built by CorneliusDrebbel. After...

    The Evolution of the Submarine Due to War The submarine is an useful tactical tool. Bred through war, the submarine is one of the most advanced covert weapons technologies today. The submarine is a ship designed and built to travel under water. A 'true's ubmarine spends the majority of time under water and is capable of staying under water (Rush 140). The only 'true's ubmarine today is the nuclear sub. The first 'true's ubmarine is the U. S. S nautilus (Rush 141). There are two main types of wa...

    Submarine Warfare It took World War I to prove the worth of submarines. Prior to that time, submarines played only a small role in the plans of fleet commanders, serving primarily only as coastal defense units. For the most part, fleet commanders ridiculed the idea that the submarine had a place in naval strategy and tactics. They believed that the submarine was only a play thing. It diverted time and money from other more useful and dependable branches of the service. This view was to suddenly...

    The History of Submarines In the year 2000, the American submarine force will celebrate the first century of service by highly skilled people in some of the most technologically advanced vessels ever built. The past 100 years have witnessed the evolution of a force that mastered submersible warfare, introduced nuclear propulsion to create the true submarine, and for decades patrolled the deep ocean front line; the hottest part of an otherwise Cold War. Submarines in War The U. S. Navy's involvem...

    The First World War and Submarine Warfare by Joe Blok The first "World War," also known as the Great War, took place shortly after the turn of the century from 1914-1918, and was so named because it was the first conflict of global proportions. The war resulted in the loss of millions of lives and the virtual destruction of Europe. The stunning proportions of the war were due largely to the application of technology to warfare. The industrial revolution at the end of the nineteenth century had b...

    The Ethics of War Unrestricted submarine warfare is often considered a shady practice in a time of war. Unrestricted submarine warfare is when one country sets up an area that is declared a war-zone, any ships that enter this zone, military or civilian, will be fired upon without warning. Is this right? In my essay, I will weigh the pros and cons of this tactic used by the German's in WWI. The practice of unrestricted warfare cost the lives of many innocent people. No warning is given so there i...

As of now, the helicopter carried two torpedoes for its missions. It was found that in developing the model, an estimate of the probability of killing a submarine was based on the distance to contact datum and the numb...

    SUBMARINE ROLES AND MISSIONS The fundamental changes in the U. S. Submarine Force since the end of the Cold War involve major shifts in submarine warfighting concepts and doctrine, from the deterrence of global war to the support of U. S. national interests in regional crises and conflicts; from a primary Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) orientation against nuclear powered submarines to taking full advantage of the modern submarine's multi-mission capabilities; from weapon load outs of primarily MK...

    Why the U. S. entered World War I Ian Rupert History Honors Block 4 World War I started when the two western allied powers were made up and started to fight in 1914. President Wilson worked hard keeping the U. S. neutral for the first two and a half years of the war. The United States finally declared war against Germany on April 6, 1917. A combination of things ended this neutrality. This essay will discuss these reasons why the U. S. entered World War I; German submarine attacks on neutral s...

    I have always been an American history buff. I was aware that the first use of the Submarine during war was during the American Civil War. Since learning this fact, I had become, in a sense, amazed with submarines - thus, I have become rather interested in them. I found this paper as a good chance to learn more, a lot more, about early submarines and the evolution of them. With the ability to sink both large and small warships with the same percent chance, the value of the submarine is great bec...

The submarine could stay at sea for months at a time and only required a few men to operate. They were small, quick, and hard to locate by larger ships. The submarine was thought to be the perfect naval vessel. The concept of ...
