  USS Gunnel SS-253 / Third War Patrol   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The safety of the boat and crew depended to a large extent on the vigilance of the three "lookouts" assigned to watch standing duties on the bridge.
While submerged since the attack and until sufacing at 0415, the Captain had the sub plane up occasionally to a depth where the radar operators could make a 360 degree horizon sweep for contacts and to get bearings and ranges of the second freighter while it was still within range.
The return trip was uneventful except that two patrol vessels were encountered, one on the 530 mile circle from Tokyo and the other at 1050 miles, the draft of each was too shallow to warrant a torpedo attack.

 Don Keith - Final Patrol
It was aboard USS Silversides, nicknamed the “Lucky Boat” because of her many close scrapes with the enemy, that Pharmacist Mate Tom Moore successfully removed a shipmate’s gangrenous appendix—even though he had never performed any kind of surgery before and had to resort to using knives and dinner forks from the galley for surgical instruments.
The boat’s sound operator was still so deafened from counting the explosions of the depth charges that he couldn’t hear the thunder, but he could certainly appreciate the sweet, fresh air that spilled down the open hatch once they were on the surface.
And in several cases, the story of how the submarines came to the end of their “final patrol,” how they came to be where they are today, is just as absorbing as the rest of their biographies.

 Killer Fish: Lockheed-Martin's CHARC
Lockheed-Martin's proposal for a deterrent to the threat of small-boat, shallow-water threats is an innovative cross between an attack helicopter and a stealth boat.
The attack on the Cole represents a new dimension in naval warfare.
Both the Pegasus (which were decommissioned in the 1990s) and Cyclone patrol boats are capable of performing the same duties as would the CHARC, in addition to performing greater missions such as costal presence patrols, special operations support, drug interdiction, and search and rescue missions.

If and when Russia resumes routine strategic submarine patrols at a more significant level (which the other nuclear weapons states have continued in the meantime), "prudent" military planning will almost certainly result in western attack submarines being sent to trail them on their patrols.

 USS BATFISH (SS 310) WAR PATROL #6
My theory on the attack is that the patrol plane launched the torpedo and the one fighter we could not see was spotting us overhead flying down our track.

Weapon Bonus: The cannons are installed with a specialized system known as 'weapon stabilization', meaning that as the boat pitches, yaws, and rolls, the guns will retain their aim on the target making it MUCH easier to target an enemy vessel providing a +2 to strike, in addition to any other bonuses applicable.
