From WIZARD through Harry at Sharkhunters:
More problems with the British Royal Navy Astute class of submarine?
Most complicated thing made by man but seemingly the entire class of vessel jinxed?
"jinxed - - 2. A condition or period of bad luck that appears to have been caused by a specific person or thing."
"Are Royal Navy submarines appear to be blind… first HMS ASTUTE, touted as the world’s the most sophisticated submarine, ran aground. A short time later, her sister ship HMS AMBUSH surfaced right under a mammoth tanker and now we note that there are online photos of HMS VENGEANCE returning to her base in Scotland from her latest three-month deployment with ‘considerable damage’. The report states that some 30% of her sonar panels were shed at some point during her mission."
THE MODERN SUBMARINE RUNNING "BLIND" UNDERWATER RELIANT ALMOST TOTALLY 100 % ON WHAT CAN BE "HEARD" VIA SONAR, PASSIVE AND ACTIVE. NO SONAR NO CAN SEE, NO CAN DO MISSION!
