Russian Navy Submarine Sunk in US Navy Attack

Responding to reports of a Russian Kilo-class nuclear submarine operating near the US carrier battle group in the Black Sea, aircraft were launched to locate and destroy the sub.  An S-3 Viking sub hunter located and attacked the Kilo with a torpedo, forcing it to the surface with some apparent damage but still underway.  The Viking vectored a flight of F/A-18 Hornets armed with Maverick F guided missiles to the submarine's coordinates where it was subsequently sunk by a missile hit.  A Navy Public Affairs press release was posted HERE.
