    Now it is even more clear that these very small 2,000 tones Dolphin class mini-submarines are pretty good for short swims. But these are diesel-electric, which is Ok for mini-submarines.

    However, serious people, like the US Navy, French Navy, and the British Royal Navy operate ONLY nuclear submarines!

    A serious Israel Navy must absolutely have minimum 2 or 3 nuclear submarines of 20,000 tones. I mean truly real big scary submarines.

    Columbia-class submarines are the real deal, and the US congress must seriously consider to shoulder Israel in these difficult moments of managing Russia’s aggression and taking over the Mediterranean Region, and with Israel having 0 (zero!) real submarines.

    Diesel-electric with near silent battery ops ability ae capable of deterrent role when they carry nuclear missiles. Leap to Nuclear Submarines is analogous to airline choosing SST aircrafty. DSoable but orders of magnitude more expensive to operate. Likewise with bringing nuclear submarines into the IDF fleet.

    Deterrent value is substantial, so maybe a lend-lease arrangement is feasible? USA leases 2 or 3 Ohio or Los Angeles class vessels, with US maintenance/rotation arrangement. Israeli crew, maybe several US Military/Electric Boat Division technical advisors riding along on deployments.

    Every single escalation in military capability among Middle East players raises the ante. Along with higher stakes, “False Flag” conflict initiation increases. US vulnerability in North America is likely EMP event aimed at shutting down communications, utilities & transport. This writer is concerned with motor transport food distribution, and so suggests replacing selected agricultural district rail branch lines in US and Canadian bred basket regions. US Israeli supporters able to back robust US Famine Hedge transport infrastructure in comprehensive nuclear submarine lease deal?

    Diesel-electric with near silent battery ops are very good.
    Also very good are nuclear submarines.
    Better have both types.
