    And with their shitty steel and welding they can´t dive very deep or get out fast. Laughing

    The real issue is graft and in the US it is rampant, from healthcare robbing insurance companies, to computer manufacturers charging 20K for a .5K video screen because it is going into a submarine and therefore must meet much stricter testing... where of course someone just signs off on it because if the screens are getting soaked in sea water they wont be the only things not working and it is unlikely they will send people down to recover the video screens because they are rated for being submerged in sea water for days...

    It would be written off, and rightly so.

    Regarding that woman who faked the test results... you can't tell me she did the tests as well, so other people in that company knew what she was doing because when they tested that steel and it wasn't good enough and they still sold it and didn't have to fabricate replacement sheets they would have known something was up.

    Calling her a patriot though... she must be protecting a son or daughter of a congressman or something...

    Most tests like that are extreme so there will be a margin of error, but if US subs find themselves in the situation they wanted it to continue working in like very cold water and pressure at the same time they might find they have some real issues but for very deep water they are unlikely to recover the sub to work out what happened anyway.
