Top 10 Deadliest Submarines

Submarines are the original stealth weapons and were first widely used during World War I. These weapons of death can stay in water, hidden from the enemy eye, for an unlimited amount of time; limited only by the food supplies. Modern submarines are capable of full fledged nuclear strikes and carry their own nuclear reactors for power.

There are two kinds of vessels: submarines and targets – a motto of submariners.

Today we take a look at 10 most fearsome and deadly submarines in the world.
