How to use submarine in a sentence?

  1. J. William Fulbright:

  4. Vern Unsworthtold:

The submarine I believe was about 5 feet, 6 inches long, rigid, so it would n’t have gone round corners or round any obstacles, it would n’t have made the first 50 meters into the cave from the dive start point. It was just a PR stunt.

  5. Arun Prakash:

    We should be worried the way we have run down our submarine fleet. But with China bearing down on us, the way it is on the Himalayas, the South China Sea and now the Indian Ocean, we should be even more worried, fortunately, there are signs this government has woken up to the crisis.
