Why is the X-1 not on the page? Or anything on pure electric submarines? ( (talk) 03:41, 8 June 2011 (UTC))

What is about the russioan Lada class?--WerWil 23:04, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

What about AIP on Japanese Asashio class?

Air-Independent PowerEdit

I wanted to broach this subject here. The US Navy has recently judged that AIP should be referred to Air Independent Power, since as in Nuclear boats, the AIP system is a power source and electric motors drive the actual propulsion. In addition, they have officially declared that the hull classification symbol for AIP submarines is now SSP. This article either needs to be retitled/moved or the differences made clear between the USN position and other entities. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lemursjlr (talkcontribs) 16:12, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

One, you need a source to back up what you say - without it, it's Original research, and we can't use that. Two, articles are generally titled by the most common term, which right now is "Air-independent propulsion". In a few years, "Air-independent power" might become the accepted term, but until then, the current name is fine. With proper sources, there should be no problem adding "power" to the Lead sentence, with a cited explanation, possibly as a footnote, of the USN's current usage. THree, if you still want to change the article's name now, just propose a move. If you gain a consensus to move it, it'll be moved properly to keep the article history intact. Fourth, the correct new title would be "Air-independent power" (no second-/third-word caps), as it is a term, not a formal name/title. Hope that helps. - BillCJ 17:04, 11 November 2007 (UTC)


How do they dispose of the exhaust without it giving away their position? Do they regenerate the LOX when they surface? (talk) 06:06, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Depends on kind of AIP. Some of them doesn't produce exhaust, others work in closed cycle. --Matrek (talk) 08:28, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Nuclear propulsion mistakeEdit

The Ohio class SSBN can use convection, without pumping, when desired. (talk) 23:16, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main PageEdit

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

From your friendly hard working bot.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 13:25, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

  Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 20:12, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Air-independent propulsionEdit

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Air-independent propulsion's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "janes":

  • From Chang Bogo-class submarine: South Korean Submarine Arrives at Pearl Harbor, Signals
  • From Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning: Jon Rosamond, 'China completes joint exercise with UK aircraft carrier,' Jane's Navy International, November 2007, p.6
  • From Chinese aircraft carrier programme: Rosamond, Jon (November 2007). "China completes joint exercise with UK aircraft carrier". Jane's Navy International. p. 6.
  • From Type 218 submarine:
  • From Type 209 submarine: "Defense & Security Intelligence & Analysis: IHS Jane's - IHS". Retrieved 19 December 2014.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 23:37, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
