Except they protrayed sonar like radar, with little blips on the screen and eveyrthing. Red October at least showed the waterfall displays.
Yeah but they "sweep" instead of the constant flow of a real waterfall display. So they kinda fudged it, but still closer though.Fly Navy said:Except they protrayed sonar like radar, with little blips on the screen and eveyrthing. Red October at least showed the waterfall displays.
It was more that they didnt want to put the time and effort in to make it actually look perfect. You'll see the lines of a standard waterfall display, but instead of constantly and evenly flowing from the top of the screen down, the screen updates inches at a time.Brett327 said:Sounds more like an active display than passive.
The real Typhoons had small pools on them. No sh!t.Wankertank said:Also the amount of space in submarines in movies is humongous, in Hunt for Red October the amount of space in the Octobers control room is big enough to fit an orchestra in. but hey...the cameras add a couple hundred pounds. =)
I've seen pictures. It was smaller than a hottub haha.Brett327 said:Right next to the bowling alley - just like the CVN.
The Typhoon is among the world's most unique weapons systems. Its size earned her a page in the Guinness Book of Records and has a multi-hull design. The outer hull, covered by sonar signal-absorbent coating, houses five pressure hulls with a sauna, a swimming pool, a gym and a smoking lounge. No other submarine in the world can boast that. The space between the two main pressure hulls houses 20 silos for the world-largest RSM-52 intercontinental ballistic missiles each mounting 10 multiple individually targeted reentry vehicle (MIRV) warheads.
