USS BREMERTON – THE WORLD’S FASTEST – DECAL RACE

What we have here is a YOU FLY, I’LL BUY proposition

Who has a good copy of the original “USS BREMERTON (SSN-698) THE WORLD’S FASTEST” BUMPER STICKER?

Editorial Note: Since the publishing of this article on 25 APRIL 2021, we understand that the decal did not say “World’s Fastest” but rather “Submarine Forces’s FASTEST…”

When the USS Bremerton (SSN-698) was a young boat in 1982, she set the high speed record for US Navy submarines, in an in-the-course-of-serving-the-nationin-an-urgent-matter-task. The mission remains a fine work for the Bremerton in her over 40 year history, a true testament to the Navy’s professionals who served aboard her and the taking to the limits advancements of nuclear power and submarine technology. Logged over the course of several days, Bremerton affirmed to the Navy what a 688 Los Angeles Class fast attack sub could achieve – getting to the op area faster than ever.

  1. I have several of the original stickers in almost perfect shape. It has been 40 years after all.

      1. Thank you. The Badfish is the fastest of my 6 boats. Pretty cool to see she’s always been that way
