Lexington Veterans Association presents: “The World’s Deadliest Weapon — the Submarine, from Pigboat to Planet Killer.”
The submarine, first introduced as a naval weapons system in the early 1900s, has gone through remarkable developments over the past century. Once reviled and openly ridiculed by senior naval officers who favored gleaming surface ships carrying big guns over the small, slow and smelly submersibles (mockingly called “pigboats”), the submarine has over the past decades vaulted to the forefront of naval combat firepower and lethality.
