mauvepink BS: Nuke Sub grounded off Skye UK (53* d) RE: BS: Nuke Sub grounded off Skye UK 22 Oct 10

Looks so stealthy there, sat just off the coast, with most of it ABOVE the water line ;-)

Pity whoever was in control of it when this happened. I bet they wish they could be stealthy just now!

Of course one of the best forms of deterrance is to let the other side know you have it. Perhaps they could do some paid for tours to get some of the money back this is going to cost for repairs. I wonder if they budgeted for it on Tuesday or is this the Navy's way of saying "Here we are, over here, the super power Navy with a stuck ship". Maybe they popped up to fish for their brekkies because the food is not too good due to rations and cutback?

Flippancy aside. I am glad no-one was injured and I hope they get her afloat soon. Things like this cost money we don't have and it also loses face both with our allies and our adversaries (the rocks ;-)   )
