    Technically, not possible in this age of modern navigation means and techniques - but sometimes it still happens.:eek:
    Seen or heard of a good one recently?

    I don't know the story behind this, but it looks like something took a bite out of this sub...

    I'm no expert, but it looks to me like something exploded outside the sub.

    Yea, i was about to say that looked like a collision and not something that blew up on the outside of the submarine....you can see the compression of the materialfrom forward to aft direction...if something had blown up outside of the hull there would have been compression inwards..

    The articles that redman so kindly supplied suggested that the "Greenville" came up stern-first and that her rudder sliced that Japanese boat and sent her to the bottom.
    I don't know anything about submarine maneuvers, but coming to the surface sternward seems akin to whistling past the graveyard.

    i agree, never heard of a sub surfacing in that manner.always seen them cumming up bow first slowly or the emergency surfacing move where they shoot up through the water more like a dolphin exiting the water:)

    Standard watches should enable one to avoid collisions on the surface. How the heck does one avoid being nailed by a surfacing sub?

    One sub or another?

    You may be correct.
