A 688 attack sub, or similar (subs that hunt other subs, not missile subs), and the name of a new movie.

Re: Hunter Killer

I saw the trailer for it on YouTube. Itís a B movie staring Gerard Butler, his house burned down last weekend, which sucks. I hope he had a deal to get a cut of any profits, which will help cover any losses above what insurance pays.

Re: Hunter Killer

Not just Hunt for Red October(great movie, excellent book), I've been a fan of all of the Tom Clancy books, and there were several that featured good submarine action. Plus I always like any sub movies for the most part. Run Silent, Run Deep, Das Boot (superb!), The Enemy Below, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea...

B movie likely because it was not a top paid actor etc.
It is an excellent movie. Likely because they had real actors who acted.

Crimson Tide?

Operation Petticoat?

Gray Lady Down


VttBotS was one of my favorite TV shows as a kid. It's contemporary - Seaquest wasn't bad early on... but eventually sank.

U571 maybe, but probably not
1941 has funny sub scene

I always wanted to sign up for submarine service, thought it would be amazing. I ended up knowing 1 guy younger than me that did, and 1 guy older than me that did (he was drafted back in the day). Both told me it was as boring and as confined and unprivate as could be, then some. Neither say any kind of combat but said it would have been absolutely terrifying. So, maybe a tech on a modern missile sub would be tolerable, but not as cool as I always imagined it. After touring about 4 older subs, they were probably right. But hey, still love the movies and books.

And I really appreciate the guys that did/do serve in them!

Re: Hunter Killer

I read that the movie crew and actors actually went to sea for several days on a similar submarine. They then went back to the studio and built an almost identical set that operated on hydraulics to give the necessary diving and maneuvering angles.
US Navy was fully cooperative which has been pretty rare since the Cher battleship incident and one of the SEAL movies. (Can't remember which one but the SEAL commander who gave the initial OK, said "Never Again".

Re: Hunter Killer

I saw it and also liked it. It was kind of like Hunt for Red October, and I really liked that movie, also.

Re: Hunter Killer

A question about Submarine Movies.

In the movies, when a sub is subjected to a depth charge attack, or in more recent movies torpedoes from a plane or another Sub, you will see violent shaking and the obligatory flange blow and water start coming in. Then, someone will turn a valve and it stops.

Well, what the heck did that part do in the first place if you could just turn it off and solve the problem.

The same goes for rivets and bolts popping. What the heck are they holding in the first place?

That being said, I enjoy these movies. Das Boot probably the best. I think it gave a pretty realistic depiction of hoe unglorious, and pure hell that service was.

Re: Hunter Killer

Although I wasn't a sub sailor I can give you a general idea until a real submariner steps up and corrects me.
Submarines rely on the transfer of air and water to be able to move up and down. There are also water lines for the crew and cooling of components. With the older Diesel subs pipes ran everywhere and were often connected with flanges and nuts and bolts. They were designed to dive no more than 300 feet so the pressure wasn't that great. There always a valve to turn the water on and off in case of battle damage. This is true of all Naval ships. With modern submarines flanges are few and far between. Dive depth is much deeper and the pressure requires welded pipes.
Several years go the USS San Francisco collided with an undersea mount and severely damaged the bow. She managed to surface and was brought back to port. The shipyard grafted a used bow from a decommissioned sub and the San Francisco returned to service but only as a training boat. They didn't believe the hull was as strong as originally built and diving depth was restricted.

If i couldnt have an old chevelle, camaro, or monte carlo, i would drive a sub. Submarines amaze me. I can spend hours online reading about subs. As a really young kid, my father drug me around to all kinds of navy ships. I was just really to young and had the attention of a gnat to appreciate them.
