    Damage to the sonar dome......That's a pretty expensive detector array to damage. Going to cost taxpayers a big lump.

    Oh, and yes, someone or both will lose their job.

    How come we got so many navy ships running into each other these days? Don't they teach navigation 101 anymore?

    :rofl:


    According to the article, the sub rose to periscope depth 100-200 yards ahead of the cruiser. I guess that would be the maritime equivalent of a "brake check". :whistling:

    How in the world do you manage to bring your sub up right in front of a moving ship?

    The one blind spot in a sub is directly overhead and 100-200 yards is an inch to those boys. Don't ask me how I know because then I'll have to terminate you!:supergrin:
