Hey OP, can you imagine dying in a submarine accident?
Have you ever thought about those grief-stricken panicked moments when all hell breaks loose? When even the most senior onboard realise that their fate is sealed by the miles of cold, crushing salt-water around them?
Can you imagine the fear, the adrenaline when things first start to go wrong? When some equipment fails, and suddenly water starts coming inside?
Can you imagine when the lights go out? What about when the hull starts lurching in ways it's not supposed to, when bodies start tumbling into walls, and panic-stricken screams echoe throughout the dread ridden hull of your tomb?
Can you comprehend the feeling of being trapped, as your Co2 absorbent powder runs dry, inhaling your last clean breaths knowing you will never be rescued?
Can you imagine, when the salt-water mixes with the chlorine, inhaling hydrochloric acid into your lungs? Can you imagine it in a pitch-black, slowly sinking metal tube surrounded by the desparate screams of doomed men while the hull lurches and screeches with the inevitable incoming pressure which will seal your fate?
Can you imagine the feeling of your froth-corrupted lungs spewing blood while the water creeps above your neck, your jaw, and your nostrils? Can you feel the panic?
Can you think about how it would feel to have your ears and sinus press inside of itself as the pressure inside the stricken metal tube equalises with the cold depths just outside?
Have you thought about what that would be like?
Also; I spoke to a submarine commander who was in vietnam. He said that once, their radar or whatever picked up a massive object in front of them, moving rapidly inside a river mouth they were positioned at. It gripped the sub and rocked it, causing huge panic and no-bullshit war-face reactions. Eventually it fucked off and they figured it was a giant squid. Any cool stories like this? Or weird happenings / war story's you've heard?
