* ''The Silent Deep: The Royal Navy Submarine Service Since 1945'' by James Jinks and Peter Hennessy notes that it is surprisingly easy for subs to crash into each other, despite having a whole ocean to play around in. Sub A learns that Sub B is nearby, and tracks it using passive sonar. Passive sonar gives good directional information, but range is little more than educated guesswork based on how much noise one expects the target to be making. If Sub B is quieter than Sub A thinks, then it is possible for Sub A to run right into it. Active sonar gives accurate range, but the ping is a dead giveaway.

** There was also an episode where the ''[=seaQuest=]'' ended up in the past during the CubanMissileCrisis. They found out that an American submarine was positioned in the wrong place and would attack a Soviet ship because they would assume it would cross the NavalBlockade. They fire torpedoes at the ''[=seaQuest=]'', who use futuristic interceptor torpedoes to destroy them. Confused, the Americans deploy a distress beacon, which would also trigger a war. Luckily, [[HeroicDolphin Darwin]] manages to disable the beacon.

Actually, to the best of our knowledge it has happened just twice; one of them was a [[FriendOrFoe Friendly Fire]] incident from UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, where [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Oxley#Loss the HMS Triton accidentally sank the HMS Oxley]][[note]]To boot, this was the first recorded instance of a British vessel sinking another vessel ''as well'' as the first recorded instance of a British vessel ''getting'' sunk of the entire war[[/note]]. The other instance was during Operation Caesar, when HMS ''Venturer'' sank ''U-864''.[[note]] Thankfully, since ''U-864'' was transporting several types of industrial {{Unobtanium}}, advanced vehicle blueprints, and technical experts (back) to Japan.[[/note]] A third example, lacking citation, may have involved the captured German U-Boat later re-launched as HMS ''Morse''.[[note]] The ''Morse'' was used by the Royal Navy to patrol the sea lanes leading back to the German home bases in western France, the intention being for returning German U-Boats, relaxing security on the last stage home, to see nothing more than a friendly submarine - which would then run up the White Ensign and fire a spread of torpedoes at them. The ''Morse'' sank several U-Boats in surface attacks and ''may'' have sunk one that was submerged.[[/note]]

* ''Film/DownPeriscope'' involves a wargame that tests if a rogue UsefulNotes/WorldWarII-era diesel submarine, run by a RagtagBunchOfMisfits, is capable of outmaneuvering the US Navy and cause significant damage to major ports. The diesel's main opponent? A ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Los_Angeles_class_submarine Los Angeles]]'' class nuclear attack sub. The exercise included two simulated attacks on naval ports where the diesel sub is assumed to do significant damage. The first attack has a scene where the old boat surfaces and launches flares (stand-ins for actual weapons) in sight of two admirals eating dinner. The second one was where Admiral Winslow (Rip Torn) authorised the use of live torpedoes by Lt Commander Tom Dodge (KelseyGrammer), in place of the flares.
