There is something to be said about people trying to craft a massive undertaking be it social policy or submarines. I wonder if the Spanish Navy told their legislature that they'll have to build it first to see if it floats?
Spanish engineers, who already spent some $680 million on designing the new generation S-80 class submarine, say it is a major “technical innovation.” There is just one problem the calculations show – if submerged into water, it may never come up again.Don't fret, they'll be fine. Just keep Mooshell off the ship...
The Spanish media has been furiously discussing the errors made by the state-owned Navantia construction company, which has spent about a third of the huge $2.2 billion budget only to produce an ‘overweight’ submarine that is not able to float.
...unless they need the ballast.
