Why is the X-1 not on the page? Or anything on pure electric submarines? (98.246.123.57 (talk) 03:41, 8 June 2011 (UTC))

What is about the russioan Lada class?--WerWil 23:04, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

What about AIP on Japanese Asashio class? http://www.hazegray.org/worldnav/asiapac/japan.htm

Air-Independent Power[edit]

I wanted to broach this subject here. The US Navy has recently judged that AIP should be referred to Air Independent Power, since as in Nuclear boats, the AIP system is a power source and electric motors drive the actual propulsion. In addition, they have officially declared that the hull classification symbol for AIP submarines is now SSP. This article either needs to be retitled/moved or the differences made clear between the USN position and other entities. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lemursjlr (talkcontribs) 16:12, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

One, you need a source to back up what you say - without it, it's Original research, and we can't use that. Two, articles are generally titled by the most common term, which right now is "Air-independent propulsion". In a few years, "Air-independent power" might become the accepted term, but until then, the current name is fine. With proper sources, there should be no problem adding "power" to the Lead sentence, with a cited explanation, possibly as a footnote, of the USN's current usage. THree, if you still want to change the article's name now, just propose a move. If you gain a consensus to move it, it'll be moved properly to keep the article history intact. Fourth, the correct new title would be "Air-independent power" (no second-/third-word caps), as it is a term, not a formal name/title. Hope that helps. - BillCJ 17:04, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Question[edit]

How do they dispose of the exhaust without it giving away their position? Do they regenerate the LOX when they surface?71.108.140.218 (talk) 06:06, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Depends on kind of AIP. Some of them doesn't produce exhaust, others work in closed cycle. --Matrek (talk) 08:28, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Nuclear propulsion mistake[edit]

The Ohio class SSBN can use convection, without pumping, when desired. http://mragheb.com/NPRE%20402%20ME%20405%20Nuclear%20Power%20Engineering/Nuclear%20Marine%20Propulsion.pdf66.135.89.39 (talk) 23:16, 11 August 2015 (UTC)


Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 20:12, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
