Manic Monday Bonus--The Future Of The Atomic Submarine!!

There's nothing more fun than looking at 1950s predictions of what the future of warfare would be like.

So, let's take a look at...

Ah, yes, the atomic submarine...

Why, Commander Battle (yes, that's his name), can you please tell us what we can expect in the future of atomic submarine warfare?

Grade: FAIL. Although it is a cool idea...think how cool The Hunt For Red October would have been?

Next up?

Well, that one came true, albeit with some of the funky design elements. Nuclear submarines can indeed launch long-range nuclear missiles, and much farther than 300 miles!

Grade: PASS!!


OK, now we're just being silly.

Grade: FAIL!! Most emphatically, mega-fail.

But there is one prediction that will always be true:

Cephalopods HATE atomic submarines!!

From Commander Battle And The Atomic Sub #2 (1954)

Looks like Commander Battle's been hitting the grog pretty hard lately.
