Should probably move the rudder under the hull. As it is, it's in the line of flight. I assume that's why you put the conning tower to the side?
OR. Make the Conn and the rudder also on elevators, retracting into the hull during flight operations.
I'd spread the VLS tubes a bit farther apart. Right now, too much capability could be taken out by one crash.
And submarine round hulls are notorious for rocking in the slightest seas. Makes them poor platforms for landing a plane, even VTOL. Could make the hull deeper and V shaped, or could have outriggers for stability.
Sounds like a good idea, I had actually not noticed the rudder getting in the way of the runway until now. It would probably do well to put it on the underside, even if it loses the ability to rest on the seafloor as a result.
As for the VLSs... well, a crash would fuck up the submarine so much that losing missile tubes would be the least of its problems.
Indeed. The Russians have always had the biggest things - Siberian Tigers, Most hottest women, longest railways, The Spetsnaz along with the largest cannon , bell and Bomb. Also they have the deepest lake as well.
