They aren't missing.  We know exactly where they're at.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least.  The US has had subs patrol those waters ever since the Soviet Union developed boomers of their own.  US subs, being a lot quieter than Soviet subs could track the boomers out into the open sea.

Not all of them.  In fact, we've got at best a vague notion where most of them are, and often even when we *THINK* we know, we're wrong.  See U-869 for a perfect example of that.

Aside from that, navigation in those days wasn't as precise as it is today.  Navigation errors for aircraft in the middle of the Atlantic could be 25 miles or more.  Same with ships, especially if they weren't able to get an accurate celestial fix due to poor weather for a few days, in which case they could be off by a hundred miles.

Though I suppose if "bottom of the ocean" is good enough, then yeah, we know where they are.

Yes, the second most realistic submarine film ever.

The most realistic, so I've been told, is this one:

Hmm. Seems the "games" have been kicked up a notch. Makes the admirals and generals happy. No better training than "we may die" training.

It's a move that Wash pulls to turn around really fast and escape Reavers.

That sound you heard was Serenity with the joke hidden in her cargo hold, doing a low pass over some horses along with your head.

Oh, I wouldn't quite call BS on it.

I'm sure our subs operate in the Barents, if not in Russian territorial waters there. It's entirely possible they found one... I wouldn't even put it past our government to order one of our subs to get their attention up there to rattle the Russians' cage a bit over their dicking around in the Ukraine. Russia would certainly chase the sub away... but if this is the case, there may well be another that watched it all that they never found.

If it went down as Russia claims, I'd not be shocked. If it went down in any number of other ways, I'd also not be surprised.

Cassandra, given visions of the future as the consort of Apollo, the sun god. I know it was a strange thing to say, but it was pretty clear what ze meant.
