What type of reactor do US nuclear submarines use?

is it a Boiling Water Reactor, a Pressurized Water Reactor, or a Liquid-Metal Fast-Breeder Reactor?

Report as

US nuclear submarines use pressurized reactors. These reactors have a high power density in a small volume and they run on low-enriched uranium. For more detailed information, go to http://americanhistory.si.edu/subs/operating/propulsion/reactor/index.html.
