What is the main reason to use nuclear reactor on a submarine?

it needs no oxygen
it needs no frequent refuelling
it is silent
it is small
Nuclear reactor requires no oxygen for com­bus­tion and emits no exhaust gas. It gives the sub­ma­rine the ability to operate sub­merged at high speeds, for un­lim­it­ed periods, de­pen­dent only on the en­durance of its crew. Nuclear power rev­o­lu­tion­ized the sub­marine, finally making it a true "un­der­wa­ter" vessel, rather than a "sub­mersible" craft.
