Has there been any documentation of a surface ship using deck guns to sink a submarine submerged? I know physics plays a part in projectiles going into the water but giving the size and power of some cruisers and battleships guns is it possible? I know some ships -might have- hit subs at periscope depth and partially surfaced and struck the conning tower but what about subs close to the surface submerged?
Any documentation of who, what when and where is greatly appreciated!
Be safe and well!
