When Boomers go crumple

If the potential for severe ecological damage wasn’t so sevre the events in the Atlantic ocean when two SSBN’s (one british, one french) collided would be actually quite funny.

Was it that the Froggie Captain was driving on the wrong side of the ocean?

or was it Roast Beef pride that stopped them giving way to the cheese eating surrender monkeys?

As both subs would have be using their passive sonars it is more likely

A, the accoustic signature of bboth subs was so low that neither sonar suite picked the other up.

or

B,  neither sub captain were maintaining a suitable watch schedule in their Sonar depts

its just not cricket!

    We have Road Rage and Space Rage (two satellites crashing) now we have Underwater Rage.

    When is one of the captains going to admit that they were playing “chicken”?

  3. LERMONTOV Says:

    Apparently, their anti-sonar equipment worked so well that neither could detect the other!

    It’d be bloody scary

    FUCK, no seat belts either, man, bet that woke up the watch that was asleep.

    Q, Does the RACV operate that far out or the British / Frog equivalent. LMAO.

    That’s going to be a bastard of an insurance claim form. Dare say someone’s losing their no claims bonus on that one.

    Definitely a testament to the tech on board though, that anti-sonar shizzle appears to work…
