There was a collision of a Japanese submarine with a merchant ship

46

According to the Japanese Naval Forces, which are part of the Self-Defense Forces, today, February 8, an accidental collision of a Japanese submarine with a civilian merchant ship occurred in the Pacific Ocean. In the collision, at least three members of the submarine's crew were injured.


This was reported by the Kyodo news agency.

The sailors injured after the collision were urgently hospitalized in a medical institution.

The submarine of the National Self-Defense Forces and the civilian vessel collided as the submarine surfaced. When surfacing, she touched the vessel with the upper part of the hull. However, her body received minor damage. The accident occurred off the coast of the Japanese prefecture of Kochi, south of the Japanese islands.

According to the General Secretary of the Japanese Cabinet of Ministers Katsunobu Kato, to investigate the incident, a crisis headquarters was created in the Prime Minister's office, which will collect and analyze information about the accident.

This is all the information we have at the moment.

- said Mr. Kato.

A 5,4 magnitude earthquake struck the west coast of Japan two days earlier. The focus of seismic activity was located at a depth of almost 108 kilometers.

      today, February 8, in the Pacific Ocean there was an accidental collision of a Japanese submarine with a civilian merchant ship.

      Close shallow PACIFIC OCEAN!
      It was impossible for Japan to have armed forces! So the world gendarme allowed them the self-defense forces? So the servicemen are greedy - not to listen to the situation, but to emerge immediately!
      Just like some kind of substance ... It's a pity they weren't stuck in an American!

    At one time, our submarine almost drowned our own MRS, getting into its trawl. It happens...

    Somehow, you pop up and do not know what is above your head. This can be skipped in case of emergency, probably, and what kind of blockheads should be the captain. fellow lol

      it is NOT ALWAYS possible
      for example, a powerful "leap" meters at 20-30
      ... and then "the people are surprised" - considering the "details of the board" of the ship, which "does not fit into the periscope" belay

    The vessel probably stood or was at a slow speed and the submarine could not detect it otherwise it is not clear how this could happen.

    But now we will know that the Japanese have not so good GUS.

          The submarine should probe with a re-scope if anyone is on top or not before surfacing?

          That's right, before surfacing, if the hydroacoustics does not show any interference nearby
          And then, for some reason, surfaced under the ship

        This should be learned from the submariners.

    Moremans, tell me, how can it be that a boat floats up under the belly of a surface ship? Where are the echo sounders and other bells and whistles that determine the location of the submarine, and the surrounding surface?
    Thank you in advance! what

      Maybe the merchant was not on the move. In general, rashness.

    near Japan, every half a year, submarines and ships butt with one of the traders
    either the destroyer will ram someone, then the coastal submarine will bend
    I'm waiting for their aircraft carrier with a dry cargo ship to disperse head-on.
    this will be epic.
    only wondering which submarine. they were going to test many new products on the new one.

        the tanker will simply creep away - it is structurally weak
        but the cargo ship will go in like a chisel.

    The submarine shots are getting smaller. Either we have a drunken political commissar ramming, or the Yaps have an inadequate crew ramming. So it will come to a nuclear salvo

    for example, a powerful jump in the speed of sound at 20 meters (real situation) and then it is extremely difficult to detect acoustics
