Out of curiosity did the Ikara system have the ability (like ASROC) to deliver a nuke
Speed. Passive sonar buoy take longer to process a target. The active buoys were very costly!!! By the time they decide it's a valid target the S/M crew have booked into their hotel rooms!!!While we are at it what did the dunking shite bring to the table that an air dropped sonar buoy couldn’t.
I would imagine they would’ve had a severe ear ache after being on the receiving end of a nukeSpeed. Passive sonar buoy take longer to process a target. The active buoys were very costly!!! By the time they decide it's a valid target the S/M crew have booked into their hotel rooms!!!
I would be very surprised if it didn’t, can’t see the yanks being too happy about it not having one either either. Myself having been subject to too many ASW exercises , disrupting my sleep listening to the yanks bloody awful sonar, I reckon the first option from them would’ve been lob a nuke depth charge at it. Obviously it was a kiss yer arse goodbye scenario I never imagined that once some lunatic fired the first one there was ever any going back.

NDB (Nuclear Depth Bomb).
Never even thought about it regarding Ikara.Also read that, further on it says that Ikara could not carry mk46 or stingray because of their weight.
If that is true then a NDB must be a definite no go.
Right / wrong?
Can't remember from my time on Dido - you?
Which goes against the wiki article. Mk44 was not Otto fuel, Mk46 was.Never even thought about it regarding Ikara.
We didn't carry the NDB while I was on there but I think we were fitted for it.
Definitely not in the Ikara mag though - I was more worried about Otto fuel down there.
