I liked the video Neal ... I wish I could watch it with a real submarine sailor and he could tell me what I am looking at.

Sonar use to be in a small room all by itself like the radio room, but now it is out in the open.

Enlisted men use to be the planes men and helm now it is officer's.

Candy and snacks offered for free between meals ... Wow!

They have some kind of secret room, I could see techs entering and leaving when I was on USS Texas. Signal intel probably.

I thought it was interesting to see all the women sailors, man times have changed

A computer room perhaps ... here's an SSBN Ohio class (14) of these left

Showing all the compartments I find the numbers 6 Command and control center and number 8 Missile control center interesting suggesting two conn's.

The first one must be for navigation and firing torpedo's, but I wonder if the second one can control depth and heading for the firing of missiles.

Line drawing of the Ohio class in its original SSBN configuration. (1) Sonar dome, (2) Main ballast tanks, (3) Computer room, (4) Integrated radio room, (5) Sonar room, (6) Command and control center, (7) Navigation center, (8) Missile control center, (9) Engine room, (10) Reactor compartment, (11) Auxiliary machinery room no. 2, (12) Crew's berthing (13) Auxiliary machinery room no. 1, (14) Torpedo room, (15) Wardroom, (16) Chief petty officer quarters, (17) Missile compartment

The "entities" back in Maneuvering also requested (? Its so hard to tell when they mind-meld with you) that you "zip it".

As it turned out, I knew a couple of the guys from training back in Groton and got invited aboard for a tour. We were standing in Nav Center and the only thing I could think to ask was "Its pretty big down here, who has to clean it?".
"Oh, we got nubs for that.."

You always knew if it was for training. Sometimes it would be in the P.O.T.D (Plan of the Day), sometimes not. But there's an escalation of steps that occurs that leads to WWIII, if those steps aren't taken it's a pretty safe bet it's a drill. That said, there was one time when the CO flubbed on his 1MC and read the wrong line stating "strategic launch" vice "status test."


In reference to your previous curiosity about there being two conns, there's not. Aside from emergency local controls, course and depth are controlled from the Control Room. Speed orders are given from Control to Maneuvering via the telegraph.
