I found that one (actually from the globalsecurity.org website, via GIS), but it's not near good enough. Sadly, it's the *only* drawing I've found. I was promised some scans, but they never arrived. :-[

Site worked for me - the LA Class link is:

http://www.deepseadesigns.net/laclass.html

Would be interesting to know the reasons behind the decidely different sail designs between US and USSR subs. Is it a reflection of the USSR's home base/operational area being more ice covered, hence the shorter and broader sail design?

HTH! Mark

You might want to ask around here:

I suppose if they don't have some drawings there aren't any in the public domain!

Got good Skipjack drawings...if it could help, let me know. But difference between Skipjack and GW (Skipjack with 'Sherwood Forest') are obviuous. At least nose/tail geometry is the same.
