LOx Tanks for submarines

In order to increase the range capacity of submarines in deep dives, manufacturers have developed anaerobic propulsion systems. Air Liquide offers them a cryogenic tank linked to a circuit distributing the liquid oxygen necessary for the propulsion of the submarine and the supply of breathing air to the crew.
