Messed up bow plane and 3 minor injuries.

A collision between a Japanese submarine and a cargo ship in the Pacific Ocean has resulted in injuries to at least three submariners, according to initial reports. The incident occurred today at 10:58 AM local time, around 25 miles southeast of Cape Ashizuri, in the waters off the island of Shikoku, which lies southwest of Japan’s main island of Honshu.

Japanese submarine SORYU collided with bulk-carrier OCEAN ARTEMIS (Chinese-flagged). No specifics yet on how this came to pass, but the bulk carrier was undamaged and in fact, not even aware there had been a collision.
