Weapons at War: Missile Submarines
A single modern submarine can remain submerged and hidden at sea for up to a year, capable of unleashing multiple nuclear warheads with more explosive power than all the munitions expended in World War II. This episode from the History Channel series chronicles the history of missile-armed submarines and how they have become the most important weapon in the arsenal of modern navies. The program recounts the technological advances and refinements in submarines, including the "George Washington" class, first launched in 1959, the stunning Soviet "Typhoons," and the U.S. "Lafayette" class subs. Highlights include interviews with veteran submariners and military historians who detail how these military craft influenced the Cold War. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
