Model submarine models form a very important part of the Replica Boat Locker range of scale model handmade wood subs. We have a wide selection of both civilian and military models to choose from in all of the following categories:-

Submarines come in various types, each designed for specific purposes and operating conditions. Here are some of the common types of submarines:

  1. Ballistic Missile Submarine (SSBN): These submarines are designed to carry and launch ballistic missiles equipped with nuclear warheads. They are a crucial component of a nation’s nuclear deterrent strategy.
  2. Attack Submarine (SSN): Also known as hunter-killer submarines, these vessels are primarily used for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface ship warfare (ASuW). They are armed with torpedoes, cruise missiles, and sometimes other specialized weapons.
  3. Guided Missile Submarine (SSGN): These submarines are converted ballistic missile submarines or attack submarines that have been modified to carry and launch cruise missiles and other guided missiles instead of ballistic missiles.
  4. Diesel-Electric Submarine: Diesel-electric submarines are equipped with diesel engines for surface propulsion and electric batteries for submerged operation. They are generally quieter but have limited underwater endurance compared to nuclear submarines.
  5. Nuclear-Powered Submarine (SSN/SSBN): These submarines are powered by nuclear reactors, providing them with virtually unlimited range and endurance. They can operate underwater for extended periods without the need to surface.
  6. Midget Submarine: Small, stealthy submarines designed for special operations, reconnaissance, or coastal defense. They are typically used for covert missions due to their compact size and limited crew capacity.
  7. Research Submarine: These submarines are used for scientific research and exploration of the ocean depths. They often carry specialized equipment for conducting various studies.
  8. Rescue Submarine: Specifically designed for submarine rescue missions, these vessels can dive to great depths to rescue crew members from distressed submarines.
  9. Combat Submersible: A relatively new concept, combat submersibles are smaller, unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) used for various military applications, such as reconnaissance, mine clearance, and intelligence gathering.
  10. Nuclear Deep-Diving Submarine: These submarines, like the Russian Alfa-class, were designed for high speed and deep diving capabilities during the Cold War. However, they are no longer in service.
