TNS Rákóczi submarine
Brickviller once again inspired me to build something. This time, a submarine.
About this creation
Some things may seem futuristic. It was made for Divide and Conquer II

Thanks for inspiring me, Brickviller .

In case you were wondering where did its name come from, read this article: Rákóczi

Showcasing all her marvelous weapons that I designed, the Deep Launch System and the CUDA torpedo.

Like all TNS vessels, it has pop-out weaponry cuz they look cool xD

This cut-away view shows how the Deep Launch System works. I came up with the idea when I realized that submarines are pretty vulnerable when they launch a missile. They need to come close to surface and when they launch a missile, the huge bubble generated by the missile is easily spotted.

With the DLS, this problem can be evaded. The top part contains no air (vacuum). The weight is located below it, so it is balanced.

After the missile launch (no bubbles), the empty part generates enough lift for the whole system to ascend quietly. Once it gets close to surface, the Turul launches like a normal missile.

The other weapon is the 800mm CUDA (superCavitating Unerwater Deadly armament). Thanks for the help with the name Matthew McCall .

Like its name implies, it's a supercavitating torpedo (well, more like a rocket). Such caliber was need to accomodate the 50 ton yield anti-matter warhead and the rocket fuel.


It has 24 DLS silos and 8 800mm torpedo launch tubes.

Like all D&C II submarines it has ultra mega quiet water pump-jets (the opening after the rearward looking torpedo hatch is the intake for the engine).

Compared to my other TNS vessels (Kizniecov, Ironclad), it's slightly smaller.

Well, thanks for viewing! If you liked anything here or have a question, feel free to leave a comment about it.

Quoting Big Chief Uber Guy Oscar Supurb Build My Good Sir! You have obviously done your research. I do have a few Questions though. Wouldn't this beast be kinda slow as well as being a large target ? Also, How does this thing not produce cavitations when moving even though it has "Catepillar Drives"? Wouldnt something this big produce a lot of water displacement thus ensuring being spotted?
This was built for a futuristic war group 70 years ahead of us. This submarine's stealth relies on advanced radar absorbing materials and a magnetohydrodynamic drive. The latter is a really interesting technology. You should definitely look that up.

Quoting Gabor Pauler Igen innovatív. De azt nem vágom, hogy miért kell vákuumnak lenni a DLS tetejében?
A vákuum miatt sokkal nagyobb a felhajtóerő. Ha levegő vagy hélium lenne akkor kisseb lenne a víz és a gáz közötti tömeg/térfogat különbsége.

Quoting Achintya Prasad and that the fins are a bit too small for such a large design, but the functionality
I forgot to write it, but it has thrust vectoring. Those fins on the engines can turn both horizontally and vertically. So manouverability is not a problem.

Awesome sub!

Fearnot Sylvan, I have my own ideas for a stealthy subsurface launch system and it is a wee bit more interesting. Then there is a second idea I have that is unheard of and will be awesome.

Excellent design! I feel its a wee bit too wide; and that the fins are a bit too small for such a large design, but the functionality, such as opening missile launchers, are and excellent touch! 5/5

Well, first off,this is a great looking vehicle. It has nice clean lines and clever design solutions built into the LDD work. Secondly, the real world practicality and capability of the technologies you have implemented into this are immense. The designs for the weapons systems are fantastic. I love the ability to fire torpedoes forwards and backwards using bays to preserve so at stealth. The missile system is intuitive and highly capable. All together, this is a great addition to your navy. 10/10

Quoting Zach Eli "Sierra" Sykes Remind me to work on a missile launch system like that for my Reaper. ;)
Hey, don't steal it. It took some time to figure it out.
