    Oddly enough, I cannot think of any reason a manned, air-breathing jet could not be launched from a submarine. Zero practicality to it, of course.

    Modify a naval fighter with folding wings; encapsulate. The rocket motor would need to be capable of boosting the jet to at least 1000 meters, because the jet would need to be able to start engine(s) during a glide.

    Pilot hops in, starts the APU or JFS, and signals go. As soon as the capsule releases him, he'd be busy getting his engines going. And of course, recovery is going to be chalenging!

    Is someone going to lend them an F-15 and the sub to launch it?

    Oh NO! Now we're in trouble - but why aren't they using their new stealth fighter? I suppose the FSBM-15 has more room for the nukes, probably the advanced MIRV'ed ballisitic missiles, capable of hitting Washington DC - watch out Obama - Dinnerjackket is coming for that shotgun you have - and he's going to melt it down with a nuclear fireball. 1000 Megatons and he'll use 20 of them, all on one missle - the new IKM - 3000. Oop's, the mod's may need to delete this post, since it has compromised Iranian OPPSEC...

    Ben,

    Get into that NBC proof truck of your's and run the hell out of Israel, possibly into Syria before DinnerJacket finds you.
    And on the sixth day, God created the Field Artillery...

    Wasn't there a WW2 Japanese design for a submarine- carrier? Or was it a carrier that could submerge?
    Maybe these guys are on to something and everyone else is not thinking outside the box? It sounds very useful for..a..something..

    It could be good for a one-way tactical suicide attack with munitions. Think about it, you park a sub off the Delaware coast, 100 miles away from Washington DC. The FSBM-15 carries JDAM's or even tactical 50kt nukes. F-15 goes at 1,000MPH, it arrives over the White House in 6 minutes, and can probably drop munitions even before that, depending on GPS. Within 5 minutes, you could take out the capital, the White House and the Pentagon, and then Kamikaze your ass into the Washington Monument, just for the hell of it.

    Unless there is a permanent CAP over Washington DC, even the alert 5 fighters from Andrews will be hard pressed to catch the intruder in time

    well yes, but I don't see why you wouldn't do that with a regular sub & cruise missiles. What do you need the planes for?

    To add the human element. If defenses do come up, cruise missiles can't jink to avoid them, or turn around to attack again, if something goes wrong and the pilot has the chance
