First off the bat in the build (which oddly enough is not an aircraft) is a fun build of the iconic cold war movies. Match up of the Soviet Typhoon class sub against the US LA class sub. The LA class sub in this build will not the the USS Dallas as depicted in the film but the USS Chicago (SSN-721) which a friend served on. The boat is a 688 VLS (vertical launch missile) capable of launching the tomahawk missiles. The Chicago was the first submarine to successfully command a predator drone in combat while submerged. After the VLS versions, the next group of LA class subs are known ad 688I (improved) which had all the capabilities of firing missiles that the previous design did but now has additional capabilities. The real noticeable visual difference between the 688I and previous versions is the dive planes commonly found on the sail were moved down to the bow and removed from the sail.
The kits are both 1/350 scale
