Aesthetically, I've always preferred the more two-dimensional and upright Western style. I make no suggestion as to the technical superiority.

Aesthetically? I can't say. The "standard" conning tower look more "normal" to me but that's because I'm more familiar with US subs. But I think its significant that some future blocks of the Virginia are shown with teardrop shaped cons.
Very good comparisons by the way.

Apparently it helps reduce certain problem areas with submarines, I am just keeping myself busy and I blame Van for starting me on it. I like both, and usually prefer the western style sail, but if the Russians had something with the teardrop then it would make sense to use it.

I like the teardrop, I think it mixes well with the more western looking hull and creates a unique looking sub.
