the one that had a paint job recently was Torbay, for a trial while she was at AUTEC. They found that the paint had faded since it was applied so it perhaps wasn't the same shade that had been tested in the lab. It's all part of an ongoing effort of signature reduction for submarines, whether that's acoustic, electromagnetic or visual.

I seem to remember some of the papers trying to make a big deal over offending sensibilities by Opossum returning to Blockhouse sporting that paint job. Personally? I thought it was flippin' great.
