MANAMA, Bahrain - Two U.S. Navy vessels &#8212; a nuclear-powered submarine and an amphibious ship &#8212; collided during the early morning hours Friday in the Strait of Hormuz between Iran and the Arabian peninsula, the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet reported.
The military said in a statement that the incident occurred around 1:00 a.m. local time on Friday (5 p.m. EDT, Thursday), when the USS Hartford, a submarine, and the USS New Orleans, an amphibious ship, collided.
According to the Bahrain-based 5th Fleet, 15 sailors aboard the Hartford were slightly injured but able to return to duty. No injuries were reported aboard the New Orleans.

Both ships were heading to port when the incident occurred in the narrow strait, said Lt. Nate Christensen. He said the incident occurred at night, and the submarine was submerged at the time, but said he could give no further details as the incident is still under investigation.
Both vessels are now heading to port for repairs and evaluation, but Christensen said that following standard security procedures he could not say where the vessels were heading.
The New Orleans suffered a ruptured fuel tank, resulting in an oil spill of approximately 25,000 gallons of diesel fuel. There was no damage the nuclear reactor powering the Hartford, Christensen said.
Both ships are currently operating under their own power.
The Navy said both ships were on regularly scheduled deployments to the region and conducting security operations.
Oil prices rose after news of the collision which happened in a busy shipping route.
As much as 17 million barrels of oil a day went through the narrow strait in the first half of 2008, or about 40 percent of all seaborne traded oil or 20 percent of all oil traded globally.
The Hartford is based in Groton, Conn., and the New Orleans is based in San Diego, Calif., the Navy said.

Sub coming up to Periscope depth and the ship was dead in the water.

OR

Sub had civilians driving and they thought is was a Japanese fishing research vessel.

OR

OOD (Officer of the deck) made the call to come up without a good fire control solution on the ship.

OR

There is a hell of a thermocline (see layer) in that area and they couldn't hear the ship.

OR

They were already at PD and the ship was running with no lights.

If the sub was submerged; which the article said they were, they screwed up.

The New Orleans has no sensors on board to detect a submerged sub.



We should chip in & buy him a Hummingbird Fishing Finder, nothing fancy, maybe one with a suction cup mounted transducer should do the trick.

Mark, can you set up a Paypal account for donations? :D

These are surface ship sailors...

Their ship is classified as a LFT by the sub fleet. That's large floating target for the uninitiated.

How about a glass to the hull to 'hear' the sub?

I'm sure that the Grey thing had it's fathometer (bottom sounder) on and the sub should have heard it. It's still a fuck up.

Back in the day when the enemy depended on lookouts and there was no radar or optics right? Frogmen right?

SSN was at fault unless they were doing a pers-trans or something.

If it were an SSBN then we would have an international incident on our hands and I would be buying oil shares as fast as I could.
