Anyone that’™s been hanging around ASZ for awhile knows that I’™m a veteran of the U.S. Navy submarine force. The Silent Service is one of the elite branches in the U.S. military. I’™m proud of my service, I wear my dolphins on my sleeve, and I will go to my grave believing that I personally played an integral role in the end of the Cold War. My own ‘œband of brothers’ went places and did things that few people outside of this small fraternity of sailors could ever imagine.

During my time in the submarine force, one thing was quite clear – my counterparts in the Soviet Union were making strides, in leaps and bounds, to match the U.S. in underwater technology and warfare strategy. We had to literally get smarter by the day to stay ahead of them. There were actually a couple of classes of Soviet submarines that U.S. submariners were in awe of from a performance standpoint.

How did the Soviets go from clunky Echo and Golf-class submarines that you could literally hear from an ocean away, to quiet stealth and operations in less than a generation of technology?
