New Submarine Picture

Navy NewsStand has a great new pic up of USS Philadelphia (SSN-690) passing through the Suez Canal, taken from the bridge of the USS Carl Vinson. Philadelphia just finished playing OPFOR in the Shark Hunt 2005 exercise in the Med, so she's probably heading to the Arabian (Persian) Gulf. Another neat picture of the Philadelphia recently using her Dry-Dock Shelter is located here.

Dry Deck Shelter. Because the deck is dry inside when you're at mumble feet.

It's got a hangAr in it.

Gumble grump.

Chap, who could get the divers and SEALs to do QA maintenance on the hangar but couldn't get them to spell it right...

It was late when I posted... but yes, it would have to be pretty big to shelter a drydock...
