Don't forget air intakes for ventilation! If you place it in a funnel, you have room for the NBC Filters so that they don't impact below decks on precious volume.Madurai said:There is a reason for a funnel in nuclear surface ships: blowout vents in case of coolant leaks.
I think the French have always used LEU submarine fuel, the British always HEU. China, no idea.
My mistake. Thank you for correcting me.The "French"? all of them? 67 million people, each using plutonium in submarines? woa! All propulsion reactors in France's Marine nationale's use are fuelled with oxyde LEU. MOX, if it is what is meant here, is not involved.
