USN:
Iowa-class battleship USS Wisconsin (BB-64) with a damaged bow after she collided with Fletcher-class destroyer USS Eaton (DDE-510) in heavy fog while daylight steaming at high speed (20 knots). The collision caused serious damage to both ships, with the Eaton contacting the battleship's bow on the starboard side forward of the bridge, which crushed to port side and broke the keel. The CPO mess area and mess deck were smashed. The ship's 1st LT saved her by securing bow to stern with anchor chain, and closing the watertight door beside his room. Only one sailor (a cook) was struck unconscious. Commander Richard Varley of the Eaton was later court-martialed and found negligent.. 6 May 1956

The Navy wasted no time convening a board of investigation, which led to Commander Varley's court-martial. His defense was based on common sense and logic: The commodore put the Eaton into harm's way, and he had no authority to give the OOD a direct order to change the ship's course and increase her speed. He could order the captain to maneuver, but no one else.Varley's defense attorney also claimed that the Wisconsin was not on station where she was supposed to be.
Varley, nevertheless, was convicted of hazarding his ship, and lost 150 promotion numbers. This was later reduced to 50 on appeal, but his career was finished. Schoeffel and Ensign Ted Tarka, who had the Combat Information Center watch but because he had no usable radar could not keep a plot of the ships in formation, received letters of reprimand.

Yankee Big Nose (Project 09780 Akson-2) was an additional modification of K-403 Kazan for trials of an acoustic system for fourth-generation Russian submarines: the Irtysh sonar system, in combination with the spherical antenna Amfora, occupies the entire nose section of the submarine. Modification of K-415 was started in 1987, but due to the end of the Cold War and lack of funds, was never completed.
 
RN:
North Polar Region (Apr. 19, 2004) Trafalgar class attack submarine HMS Tireless sits on the surface of the North Pole. Tireless surfaced with the U.S. Navy Los Angeles-class attack submarine USS Hampton (SSN 767) for ICEX 04, a joint operational exercise beneath the polar ice cap. Both the Tireless and Hampton crews met on the ice, including scientists traveling aboard both submarines to collect data and perform experiments.
