Defense Focus: Diesel sub wonder weapons

The diesel submarine may be the leading “Cinderella weapon” of the 21st century. It gets no respect in the United States or Russia. But China, India, France, Germany and Israel are all betting on it big time.

“Wonder weapon” might be pushing it a bit, but I do fear that the diesels don’t get enough respect.
