I am three quarter's of the way through reading the book 'A time to die: The kirsk disaster'. For those of you who do not know the history of the Kirsk in the year 2000 the Russian Submarine Kursk sank due to a explosion with one of the Torpedoes on the Northern fleet training. When the rescuers from the assisting Country's of the United Kingdom and Norway, the midget rescue subs had problems locating stricken submarine, and yet the Russians had given exact location of it. So why could they not find it.
A faint ping is what gave it away.
It dawned on all on board the two rescue ships. The Kursk was fitted with a hull surrounded by rubber tiles greatly decreasing the chance of a sonar ping.
So I would like to put the question out of there. Do you guys think with the increase of naval technology an successful risk with fall dramatically?
Before you reply I would like to let you know a few things. I understand that while there is always negative there is a positive. The increase of naval technology is to increasing.
I would like to dedicate this page to all who lost there lives in the Kursk disaster (All 118 sailors and officers on board.) and the Family's who where heartbroken by there losses and the ever increasing wait for information in Russia.
This is my first post so some feedback would be greatly appreciated.
