Collisions involving US and Soviet/Russian Submarines

Date Details
November 16, 1969 Collision between Soviet and US submarines
June, 1970 The USS Tautog (SSN-639), a Sturgeon-class nuclear-powered attack submarine, collides with the K-108, an Echo II-class nuclear-powered cruise missile submarine near coast of Kamchatka.  USS Tautog departs the area, believing that the K-108 has sunk.  Tautog returns to Pearl Harbor for repairs to her sail, periscopes, and antennas. K-108 barely was able to return to the base, and repairs took several years.
August 28, 1976 Soviet attack submarine K-22 collided with US Navy destroyer in Mediterranean. 
April 9, 1981 The U.S. nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine USS George Washington (SSBN-598) collided with a Japanese freighter in the East China Sea. The freighter sank, leaving two of its crew dead, and the submarine suffered slight damage to its sail. The submarine probably carried a total of 160 nuclear warheads on its 16 Poseidon C3 missiles.
March 24, 1984 The U.S. aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63) collided with a Soviet nuclear-powered Victor class (Project 671) attack submarine in the Sea of Japan. At the time of the collision, the USS Kitty Hawk is estimated to have carried several dozen nuclear weapons, and the submarine probably carried two nuclear torpedoes.
June 14, 1989 U.S. Navy Los Angeles-class submarine - the USS Houston - has collided with a small surface vessel towing two barges. The collision occurred between Los Angeles and Santa Catalina Island off southern California, when the submarine had been about to take part the next day in the filming of ``The Hunt for Red October,'' a Cold War thriller based on Tom Clancy's best-selling novel.
February 11, 1992 While on patrol, the Russian  Sierra-class nuclear-powered attack submarine K-276 (Type 945A "Kostroma")  was involved in a collision with the American Los Angeles-class nuclear-powered attack submarine USS Baton Rouge (SSN-689). The American submarine was trailing the Russian sub and miscalculated its speed. Both submarines sustained significant damage. The American submarine was written off.
March 20, 1993 The collision occurred between the USS Grayling (SSN 646) attempting to trail Russian K-407 (SSBN of Delta-4 class) seventy-four meters beneath the icy surface of the Arctic Ocean. They were 105 nautical miles off the Kola Peninsula. The accident occurred as the Russian boat crossed in front of the American. This accident didn't result in casualties. American submarine was written off later as a result of the accident.
February 11, 1998 South Korean fishing boat sank after colliding  with a nuclear-powered U.S. submarine off South Korea's south coast. The boat's five crewmen were rescued. The submarine was not damaged in the pre-dawn collision and was sailing to the southern naval port of Chinhae with the rescued fishermen. The submarine La Jolla was based in Japan as part of the U.S. 7 th Fleet, and was on its way to Chinhae for supply and maintenance when it collided with the fishing boat seven miles off the coast.
March 19, 1998 The collision of two US submarines occurred at 9:30 am on March 19, 1998 off Long Island, NY. At the moment of collision the USS Kentucky (Ohio class ballistic missile submarine) was at the surface, and the USS San Juan (Los Angeles class attack submarine) was submerged. According to U.S. Navy official data, the submarines suffered minor damage and returned to Groton naval base for extensive checks. There were no casualties. Most probably, the collision was caused by mistakes of the crews of both submarines.
February 9, 2001 Pearl Harbor-based USS Greeneville, a 6,900-ton Los Angeles-class nuclear attack submarine, has collided with and sank a 499-ton Japanese trawler Ehime Maru, which sank to a depth of 18,000 ft only ten minutes after the collision some 9 miles south of Pearl Harbor. The trawler was carrying 35 people, of whom a group of four high school students, two teachers and three crew members were missing and presumed dead.

Jan 27, 2002
The U.S. nuclear-powered submarine Greeneville, which struck and sank a Japanese fishing boat last year, and another U.S. vessel were involved in a collision in the Arabian Sea on Sunday but neither craft was in danger of sinking. There were no injuries in the surface collision about 40 miles off Oman, but a fuel tank on the amphibious Navy warship Ogden was punctured and several thousand gallons of diesel fuel leaked into the sea. The Pentagon said the incident, which occurred as the Greeneville was preparing to transfer personnel to the Ogden in a small boat, was under investigation and there was no immediate indication of the cause.
