    Can you really smoke on a sub like that? If I was in those rooms with all those people smoking I would go nuts.

    Actually it is DOD policy that if you are in an enclosed area that you cannot leave, say a tank, sub, airplane, or even a vault, you can smoke four cigs during your duty. They provide oxygen and respirators to the folks who don't smoke, on an as needed basis. The problem is that sometimes a unit doesn't have enough money to pay for the oxygen or maybe the equipment, so you usually wind up with either the oxygen or the equipment. Oxygen is highly flammable BTW. Sometimes you can use excess oxygen or equipment as trading chips to gain what you don't have, such as tents, ammo, or armor.

    WTF are you talking about? :nono:

    Smoking is permitted in limited areas on submarines. Usually one space is picked as a "Smoke Deck" based on whether or not the space has adequate ventilation and as to NOT affect non-smokers.

    The Commanding Officer of the boat can smoke anywhere he damn well pleases. But he would usually confine his smoking to his stateroom.
