Diesel Subs are back, And you know they can never be wack

With the wit of the Fat Boys, the Diesel Subs are back. A lot of Danish Naval officers were cross when the Danish submarines were phased out and the obligation to buy the new Scandinavian Viking Sub project were scrapped. They are probably not gonna be happier when they read this article in the Defense Technology International, detailing how Diesel Subs are back in vogue, with a new focus on littoral warfare.

A thing that was discussed very much when the Danish subs were phased out, was that the loss of experience would be the biggest loss. If this trend continues, the Army/Navy high command and the politicians might have a chance to jump right back into the diesel sub before all the old submariners are retired.
