    This is what happens to any ship when a large explosion occurs under the hull.

    Watch the whiplash effect as the hull is stressed and broken.

    SYSCOM3 that video was absolutely.....:shock: HOLY SH-T!!!!!!! When I was stationed at Norfolk, Va. I saw a bumper sticker on what had to be a submariners car. It said " there are two kinds of ships, submarines and targets." Thanks for the link.
