S-4, Squalus, Scorpion, Kursk - these are the names of submarines which fell victim to tragedy. In the U.S. Navy's submarine service, emergency training is stressed, and drills conducted to perfect procedures and prepare crews for any situation. Featured on this DVD are four rare and historic training films showcasing techniques to be used in a worse-case scenario. You'll see midshipmen training in the giant escape tank at the submarine school in New London, and witness a full-scale drill utilizing diving bells and rescue vessels in mid-ocean. Watch as instructors detail deck safety, and describe how to recover a crewman who has fallen overboard. Finally, see a rare and recently declassified film that describes how Navy frogmen and SEALs use the escape trunk to enter a submerged submarine. This film features never-before-seen footage shot aboard the special operations boat USS Grayback. Please note: the films featured on this DVD were originally produced by and for the U.S. Navy. Due to their rarity, image and sound quality may vary.
