THE US NAVY VIRGINIA CLASS AND THE BRITISH NAVY ASTUTE CLASS BOATS

Here are several links that provide very interesting insights into the US Navy’s VIRGINIA Class submarine and the British ASTUTE Class submarine, both classes representing the latest and greatest in submarine technology.  I found it very interesting that the British sub has more racks than are needed for the crew.  I particularly enjoyed the compartment by compartment view of the ASTUTE Class boat.

This is a link to the VIRGINIA Class with excellent photos:

This link to the British boat has a fascinating cut away view showing lots of compartments:
