Russian divers have spotted the wreckage of a legendary U.S. submarine that was lost in the Pacific in 1943, The Associated Press quotes Russian media
Ok, It's great that the Russians found this lost WWII submarine don't get me wrong.
But what I find fishy about this story is that the Russians Navy can find a sunken and lost submarine from 60 years ago, but can't save sailors from
their own navy in damaged submarines?
They either claim to be clueless or don't have the technology available to save their own in time of disaster.
Granted these divers were from a University in Vladivostok and not the Russian Navy as the story goes.
Like I said something Fishy is going on here, I guess any sunken ship from your enemy is a still a prize even if it's 60+ years old.
