HOW DO YOU KILL A SUBMARINE!
Mk. 54 lightweight torpedo
The U.S. and allied navies have one of the best light torpedoes in the world in the Mk. 54. It has a 96-pound warhead guided by a torpedo that can ignore enemy countermeasures and home in on an enemy sub at 40 knots. It can be launched from ships, helicopters, and planes and reaches deep enough to kill all known subs.
The Littoral Combat Ship
The LCS ASW mission is to conduct ASW operations in support of a carrier strike group (CSG), amphibious readiness group (ARG), LCS surface action group (SAG) or independently. he Littoral Combat Ship is a fast, agile and networked surface combatant optimized for operating in the littorals. The primary missions for the LCS include countering diesel submarine threats, littoral mine threats and surface threats, such as small surface craft attacks, to assure maritime access for joint forces. The underlying strength of the LCS lies in its innovative design approach, applying modularity for operational flexibility. In executing each mission, LCS employs a modular Mine Countermeasures (MCM) MP, Surface Warfare (SUW) MP or Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) MP. (Source – http://www.navy.mil)
Arleigh Burke Destroyers
What could be easily said as the workhorse and the backbone of the United States Navy surface fleet. The Tin Can Sailors have been dropping depth charges since WW2 and fire the Mk. 54 anti-submarine torpedoes.
When NAVOCEANASWCEN contacted Vision-Strike-Wear.Com they requested a strong American, Japanese custom US Navy design featuring the Torii Gate, Mt Fuji, a Trident skewering an enemy submarine piercing its hull, and their command motto “Maintaining Freedom Of The Seas” which is an important message as world powers work hard to develop their submarine technologies and the US navy effort so keep ahead of that curve.
