The Sub is 70 tons overweight due to a decimal place error:

The other odd math fact in there is that it was due for delivery in 2015 but the math error could delay it for up to 2 years ... so ... 2017. Is it done yet?

Why did I included this:

(1) Isaac Peral, named for a 19th century Spanish submarine designer
(2) Anything about Submarines is cool
(3) Is this like Traveller where the weight is really the displacement of liquid hydrogen?

Yours,
