Check out the dolphins near the end of this video  :) :)

The dolphins joined in on the fun while the sub was conducting its high speed above water tests.

They were very cool! I had dolphins swim nearby our museum ship's boat in Plymouth harbor (Plymouth Ma USA), but it ain't the same as a sub! I love that bow sunk in and the ripples aft.

She look like she doing +25 kts.

Just imagine how much water that sub has to push out of the way to make that speed, A little easier for the dolphin!


Energy needed for 25 kts

Dolphin = 1 fish; USS Minnesota = 2 kg of Uranium ;D
