OK, so during a submarine doing target practice (sink a retired ship), the sub sprung a non-critical leak.

Cool pics inside that link though, and a lot of actual detail about surrounding issues of the whole situation. EG environmental, historical etc.

Would be so cool going scuba diving in newly sunk wrecks, get that eerie feeling that it use to be fully operational only a few months ago.
