It is not Sauron’s crown in Lord of the Rings shown above, although one could suspect author Tolkien was influenced by the rear part of a submarine in his drawings of Middle Earth. This is the Saab Kockums production line in Karlskrona, where the world’s most modern submarine is being built. During the end of last year, I got to spend five weeks within the A26 project as my first longer rotation outside of my home department at Aeronautics. It was an exciting experience coming from a project where we literally aim for the sky, to one where the deep waters rule.
