    Like all Norsemen, Norvegians like spirits. I would rather not say that booze is a reason for a catastrophy of norvegian frigate, but it`s a clear proof what happens when you leave navy relying on a handful of big, complicated and costly ships! Catastrophy!

    because of contradict requirements. Sailors being months underwater need physical activity, at least minimum to stay in shape. Traditional gym is heavy, large and noisy. Imagine now dropping 100kg weight on steel floor. When you try to be silent lol1 lol1 lol1


    I am curious how his problem was solved. And If my educated guess was educated enough ;-) Taking into account available restrictions noise place I vote for strictures with no moving parts (vide ghetto gyms) and eventual with something like TRX suspension systems.

    I remember there being all sorts of odd things in the Akula... but obviously being an SSBN and the largest sub in the world there was a lot more room for such things.

    Just from memory there were 3-4 libraries, at least three swimming pools, an aviary, and two gyms, and every sailor had their own room... in comparison in the equivalent US sub they practised hot racking... in other words there are basically three crews in any sub that work for 8 hours, have 8 hours break and 8 hours sleep every day so for 8 hours the beds are being used by a different person... you share your bunk with three other people...

    The swimming pools were not 50m pools... more like a room sized pool.

    The aviary had small sick looking trees in it with birds flying around where you could sit and read and listen to the birds...

    and camped space. True is works. And is fixed unlike free weights (any "hard" maneuvers on sub). I wonder which concept wins on subs, more "ghetto gym" or hi tech gym. Both can fulfill the task.

    You can use tension exercises that involve springs and elastic materials rather than weights...

    It is widely used in the space programmes where "weights" are too expensive to take up to orbit and not effective for their size when you get them there.

    women can always be replaced by gay sailors

    Imagine the scene on an American sub... the first lady steps on to the ramp and the sailors in the tower squeal... "ewww, a girl!!" and rush off to warn the boys...
