The Soviets lost a then front line SSN in the Indian Ocean in early 1986 that never shows up among the listings of their losses

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Anyway, operating submarines is very dangerous. BTW, for some reason that list didn't include the CHINA, CHANGCHENG 361 (2003) incident which killed 70.

Well, your list shows the Scorpion twice.

Hopefully there's no actual accident really happened like what happened in the past,

Kursk was lost due to the detonation of a faulty torpedo.

9 of those 20 are Russian/USSR.

I was going to make a corny dad joke about the impossibility of quality control when one’s own language doesn’t even have a ‘Q’. Glad I didn’t. It would have sunk like the Kursk.

In terms of military submarine accidents, Russia has experienced the most incidents compared to any other country. The Russian Navy has had a history of submarine accidents, some of which have been highly publicized and tragic. These accidents have occurred due to various reasons such as technical failures, human errors, and operational mishaps.

9 of those 20 are Russian/USSR. Seems odd that the title says sorted by death counts, but it clearly isn't sorted by death counts. AI flaws over simple things like sorting? I'm not impressed.

Anyway, operating submarines is very dangerous. BTW, for some reason that list didn't include the CHINA, CHANGCHENG 361 (2003) incident which killed 70.

I'm going to wager good money that the US-Aus nuclear subs will be a major step up from Russian sinking coffins.

Yes, it’s clear they offended you greatly. I probably got what I deserved. You always have the same thing

It is good to see Australia investing more in Southeast Asia.

It is also good to know Singapore has no issue in hosting Australian SSN's in the future.

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said the city-state would gladly host Australia's fleet of nuclear-powered submarines once they were up and running -- an offer likely to raise Beijing's hackles.

Who cares? It has nothing to do with China, so I doubt they will even give it a thought. It is no different to port calls by US and UK submarines into Singapore. Aussie submarines are already used to making port calls at Changi naval base.
