One dead in Brit nuke sub horror

By STAFF REPORTER

ONE person has died and another is in a life-threatening condition after a shooting on board the nuclear submarine HMS Astute.

The dead man was believed to have been a naval officer serving on the state-of-the art submarine, which is currently docked in Southampton.

Officers arrested a man after the shooting but said the incident was not terror-related and there was no risk to the public.

It was revealed today that Southampton City Council's mayor, leader and chief executive were on board when the shooting took place. They were not injured.

 Reminiscent of 'Crimson Tide' which was based on a true timeline of events? Probably just an irate rating who got ticked off by the weapons engineer, who he shot dead, wounding another. Likely the 22yr old rating was complained at for not knowing how to clean his weapon, or something ...?

But there's a developing Zeitgeist or Mythology of story telling around the subject of Chaos breaking out on the volatile undersea world of Nuke Subs. Could this infer, statistically, that eventually, the ultimate catastrophe of a rogue missile launch taking place, may actually happen. Remember, once a meltdown at a nuclear reactor was a distant statistical risk, now we've had a least 2 at once. Therefore, projecting out, it's just a matter of time before some idiot gets the lauch codes and does the Jamie Lee Curtis.

It is the councillor, onboard RMS 'Astute' who was an ex non-ratings RAF officer who body tackled the shooter, 'My instinct was to make myself as scary as possible' he reported in the Telegraph.

And in the spirit of True British Vim, last nignt I overheard an interesting conversation between people seemingly in the know about certain things sub. This snippet details a certain event onboard a Nuclear Sub when PM Margaret 'the thatch' Thatcher was the visiting dignatory, back in the day, along with her armed bodyguard escort, who ended up in a barny with a senior member of Submarine Security.

Route:

Don't they have psychiatric standards for men who work with NUCLEAR WEAPONS???

TT:

I don't think a launch by an out-of-control crewman is possible, as there are built-in safeguards that, at least in theory, make it impossible for a single person to launch a weapon.

Anyways, questions have been raised re: the quality of RN u-boat construction, particularly by those of us with ties to Canada.  Look up the history of HMCS Chicoutimi, and also check this out at:

http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1717479

"As for the comment about these boats not having problems while they were in the Royal Navy, what about HMS Upholder (now Chicoutimi) having problems while on sea trials in 93/94? They were on full speed propulsion trials when the main engine came off its mounts and began sparking violently causing a fire. So you see these problems are not new and they are inherent to their class. There will be teething problems for all 4 subs and the Canadians know this and are dealing with them very professionally."

Hmmmm!
