Former United States Navy Ship Kilauea breaks apart and sinks following a torpedo attack from the Collins Class submarine HMAS Farncomb, on the Pacific Missile Range Facility off Hawaii during RIMPAC 2012.
The Royal Australian Navy’s Collins Class submarine, HMAS Farncomb, successfully sunk a target ship, the former United States Navy Ship Kilauea, during exercises in Hawaii.
Farncomb, a Collins Class submarine, fired one Mark 48 Torpedo and achieved a hit just below the bridge of the 12,106-tonne ship as part of Exercise Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2012.
The former USNS Kilauea broke into two parts and sank about 40 minutes later.
The submarine’s Commanding Officer, Commander Glen Miles, said the firing was a significant milestone for both himself and his 60-strong crew.
“This is the result of professionalism and teamwork,” Commander Miles said.
“Those of us who drive these boats know that the Collins’s weapons systems are among the most capable in the world.”
Australia is among 22 nations attending Exercise RIMPAC that includes six submarines and 40 surface ships participating in a realistic maritime warfare scenario.
Australian soldiers from 1 RAR are also participating in the amphibious aspect of the exercise, alongside US Marines. RAAF AP-3C Orions and a Wedgetail aircraft are also providing air support.
Australia’s contingent commander, Commodore Stuart Mayer, said RIMPAC provided the ADF with a realistic, high tech and challenging training opportunity.
“HMAS Farncomb’s success reminds us yet again of the invaluable role submarines play in modern warfare,” Commodore Mayer said.
“RIMPAC allows us to train with our allies for a worst case scenario in a real life environment.”
The world’s largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC, provides a unique training opportunity helping participants foster and sustain the cooperative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security on the world’s oceans.
RIMPAC 2012 will conclude on 3 August 2012.
