Subs, nuclear, firing missiles from subs, and images are all questioned here. What, if anything, could be considered real in this article?
The Los Angeles class submarine USS Olympia (SSN-717) is the second oldest nuclear fast attack submarine in the U.S. Navy’s inventory. But apparently, when it comes to Olympia, with age comes wisdom and stellar performance. The boat’s crew not only performed awesomely during Rim of The Pacific (RIMPAC) drills that just wrapped up, but they also made history by firing off the first UGM-84 Harpoon anti-ship cruise missile from an American submarine in decades during a sinking exercise (SINKEX)—an act that is likely to have dramatic repercussions for years to come throughout the Navy’s fast attack submarine community.
