Doesn't the premise of that sound a little like SWOs vs aliens (aka Battleship, the movie)? But step back a moment and check out the image above. Who hasn't seen this famous picture? Official Caption: "COAST GUARD CUTTER SINKS SUB: Coast Guardsmen on the deck of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter SPENCER watch the explosion of a depth charge which blasted a Nazi U-Boat's hope of breaking into the center of a large convoy. The depth charge tossed from the 327-foot cutter blew the submarine to the surface, where it was engaged by Coast Guardsmen. Ships of the convoy may be seen in the background." Date: 17 April 1943 Photo No.: 1517
