Clearly the tanker was hi-jacked by Islamic terrorists, chased down and rammed the sub whilst going full astern.

From what the article says it sounds like the sub was running on the surface. They said the bow was submerged. Well any nuke sub runs with the bow submerged while on the surface that's just they way are.
And Cuda is right, that commander will be reassigned and most likely lose his commission (fired).

My retired business partner was on a sub in the early 60's that hit another ship in the Mediteranean. Was his Captains fault.

been about 10 years since I was on sub duty, but the new Jap tankers are SMOOTH......... the old ones sounded like skeletons fornicating in a metal garbage can, the new ones sound like a rain storm........

the way this happens is the Jap tanker is extremely smooth running, and a sonar guy thinks it is a rain extremely..... till the "THUMP"....

a submarine running real close to the surface has no sonar for practrical purposes, to much wave action hitting the sonar dome.

It is the skippers fault, no matter what, if it happens on a boat, the skipper gets the glory or the blame. A few sonar guys, and a weapons officer will also get reassigned and not advance again, if they are not demoted. Sometimes schit just happens, but when it does on a boat, careers are ended real fast...
