turns out it's a ship. they're thinking hospital ship due to the heli pad on the top platform.

Dr. Robert Ballard and his team are guiding a ROV somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico.
Wow, just saw they found a sunken ship of some type.

I suspect it's the Vandenberg.

On the quad view at source, it shows the terrain under the water. The terrain from Florida falls deeper towards the location of vessel?

The photo on cnn article resembles quite alot, no?

You could be right, it does look it's Vandenberg.

Yep, they just said and we can see that all dors and hatches are open and that its designed to sink.
It's also military.

Great catch loveguy!

It's not Vandenberg, that was a big ship. This is like a missile cruiser.

Here's a picture, it was actually a destroyer and saw quite a bit of action, and sunk for weapons testing after decommissioning.

Thanks. OP. That was really great! Can anyone tell me why they would sink it rather than let scrap metal people have at it?

weapons-testing. The Navy scrubs old ships to use at targets for testing weapons-systems.

Anybody know what the appendage is on this Spruance? Reminds me of radar cross section reduction or testing.

Thanks for the reply. Much obliged.

It makes sense.

edit on 7-7-2014 by aboutface because: Texas rabbit or taxes rabbit? Thought at first it was another one of our bunnies. Just how many rabbits are there on ATS and how much can we input into editing reasons?

It's the Advanced Enclosed Mast/Sensor System. It was an attempt to reduce the electronics signature of the ship.
