Are there any submarines named Juliet?
There are no known submarines named Juliet. However, the name Juliet is used by NATO to identify a class of Soviet submarines that are no longer in operation. It was a diesel-electric submarine capable of launching cruise missiles. Most American World War II submarines were named after species of fish. Most early nuclear-powered submarines were named after World War II submarines. The first generation of nuclear-powered ballistic submarines were named after famous Americans. Most Los Ageles-class fast attack submarines are named after U.S. cities, with the exception of the USS Hyman G. Rickover. Most Ohio-class guided missle and ballistic missile submarines are named after U.S. states, with the USS Henry M. Jackson being the exception. The Virginia-class fast attack submarines are mostly named after U.S. states. The lone exception as of January 2011 is the John Warner, which is expected to be delivered in 2015.
What was the significance of the US cracking Japan's secret code?
It had the same significance of the Allies breaking the German's code; The German Submarines (U-Boats) could no longer communicate without the Allies listening to them. We knew where the German Subs would be & when. Then they were SUNK! The US knew where and when the Japanese would be; the US Navy would be waiting for them.
Asked in World War 1, Submarines
Was the submarine effective in World War I?
Yes, A German U-Boat sunk The Lusitania, eventually causing The United States to join the war, I'd say that's a huge impact. Undoubtedly. The submarine came of age in World War 1, but its success was less than it could have been because admirals preferred to fight with massive fleets of surface ships. Navies had submarines in earlier wars (late 1800's, early 1900's), but they were held out of action. In World War 1, the submarine proved itself a warship that could no longer be ignored. As evidence that submarines were not taken seriously before the war, no anti-submarine weapons were invented until after submarines began sinking enemy ships. The most famous submarines of WWI were the German U-Boats (U standing for Untersee, the German word for underwater)
Asked in World War 2, Submarines
How did the German use of submarines affect World War 2?
Germany was fairly effective in its use of submarines in World War II. Only by continuing to destroy the U-boats and their support systems did we turn the tide. That and by building merchant marine shipping vessels (the Liberty ships) and the war materials they transported faster than the Germans could sink them were we able to gain a tactical advantage and win the war. The German use of the U-boat caused the conflict to stretch on longer than it might have otherwise.

What is a German submarine?
"submarine" translates as "U-Boot" in German. "atomic submarine" translates as "Atom-U-Boot" "missile-launching submarine" translates as "Raketen-U-Boot" The newest German Boot is the "Typ 212" which uses hydrogen fuel cells that don't need air to run. This means that the length of time they can remain submerged is far longer than any atomic submarine can. They are far safer than the atomic submarines.

Asked in Submarines, Nuclear Weapons
How can nuclear submarines travel underwater?
Just like diesel submarines travel underwater, but for much longer periods as the nuclear engine does not consume the oxygen in the air. The older diesel submarines were limited to running on batteries or using a schnorkel to get air for the engines when underwater, so usually they traveled on the surface like regular ships only submerging to prepare for an attack with torpedoes on passing enemy ships. The nuclear submarines can practically travel underwater forever, until they need to be resupplied with food for the crew.
