Man!!!! Only one dead? You'de think doing a full stop from 35kts would wipe out most of the crew. It's a testimony to our servicemen and their hardware that that thing made it back to port with her entire crew aboard.

Wow! I didn't expect to see that much damage. The captain has already been relieved of duty a couple weeks ago.

Uncharted or not, that sub is supposed to have the best sonar on the planet!

Looks like only the sonar dome was destroyed. If it was any worse they may never had made it back.
And one sailor did die from injuries.

If the mountain truly wasn't on any charts then the Navy can't really hold the captain responsible. I'm sure he was relieved of duty....pending a hearing and possible Court Marshal. Either way his career is over.

An attack sub, or any sub, will always travel with only the passive (listening) sensor systems operating. If they ran with the active systems running then every sub, ship, and anti-sub aircraft will be able to track them from a thousand miles away. An attack sub or boomer will only go active just prior to weapons release. And sometimes not even then.
