Have you ever seen a sub. before ? Ah no windows ! They see with sonar , so if a fast moving boat blast over the top while surfacing they stand no chance . As your luck would have it I work on subs for a living , If you only knew how big these things really are and how many people it takes to run one . With a post like this you are bound to come accross a old submariner and I am sure he will set you straight . As far as the rest of the world and their subs , yah no comparison . Best regards From Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and IMF ! P.S. it could not have been that much damage as we havent heard of this boat coming in for any repairs .

Maybe it sank. Its not like the US military has any real idea.

In your haste to bash the US Navy, did you even read your own source article?

It says... "The vessel continued on a consistent course and speed offering no indication of distress or acknowledgement of a collision."

And also...."A US naval P-3 aircraft searched the area and spotted no debris in the water or vessels in distress, officials said."

Anyway, he'll be the first Navy Commander relieved this year at next port of call. He'll be commanding a desk for what's left of his career.
