  1. No sir those are not really windows. Those are protective RFP and rubber plates that cover the Active and Passive sonar transducers.  Sound does not go through steel very well so material that can allow acoustic energy through is used. The front of American submarines is nothing more than a big fiberglass dome.  When the shipyard here in Charleston shut down they had a few sonar domes left over so they turned them so it formed a dome, they cut a door in the side and presto you have a storage shed.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
