The object that the American nuclear submarine collided with turned out to be a mountain

The United States completed an investigation into an incident in the South China Sea involving an American nuclear submarine. On October 7 this year, a US Navy submarine collided with an unidentified object. The Pentagon official then was quick to say that the topography of the area at the time of the accident did not indicate that there was a land mass in front of the boat.

Nevertheless, this is exactly what happened. According to the investigation report, USS Connecticut survived the collision with the seamount.

    the wheelhouse is damaged and not the muzzle, which means the collision was not with the rock
