A preface notes the dangers to carrier task forces and surface fleets. We consider the carrier in many ways an obsolete, overrated platform. The US investment requires a fix to protect surface vessels: to wit the flying mini-sub. Chapter 1 briefly mentioned the flying sub of the Seaview flown by Admiral Nelson and Captain Crane on TV. We view this design very unlikely and impractical for today's mission. We propose a flying helicopter mini-sub, carrying two standard torpedoes and a Gatling type gun that fires sea darts at torpedoes, or sea dart warheads on standard torpedoes for large vessels. The engine, exhaust, fuel, flight requirements, tactical methods, advantages over large attack submarines are all discussed. We next discuss submarine lifeboats for merchant and naval vessels. We note these as more seaworthy than surface boats, that one or two ships are lost at sea each week, often with all hands lost. Cap gun rockets is the next topic. We use forward mounted cannon on warplanes to slow the plane more quickly upon landing, giving them STOL capabilities. These make recovering these planes after long range missions more feasible, dispersing defensive power more efficiently. We use cap gun ammo to ignite fuel forward upon landing in controlled mini-bursts. The last topic discusses naval strategy with respect to the interface between attack submarines and aircraft carriers. Chapter 2 is a summation of the basic ideas, their feasibility and cost advantages.
