Thumbs up The Wolf’s Call

New Submarine themed movie on Netflix.

French movie production, with English subtitles.

One of the best Submarine movies have seen!

Think Crimson Tide....but with a modern day French Navy twist.

Well worth viewing to say the least. Two Thumbs way up!

A real edge of your seat thriller.

I hope the our military has a large part in the movie...we've been bailing those cheese eaters out of their self-made misery and turmoil for years.

So they're smoking cigarettes, wearing berets, and discussing bad poetry over wine in the goat locker?

Agreed ... Great movie I even stayed up late to watch it.

Could you differentiate sounds of various vessels/ships like he could?

Its difficult to really get into it. We have sophisticated gear that can identify stuff, to correlate sounds to identify things.
An operator can distiguish some pretty amazing sounds from sea life to specific mechanical, electrical, air, hydraulics etc etc
But yes, we can hear, identify ships, subs, pkanes, helos, torpedos, missles, gunfire off of ships, aircraft launching etc
And we can be very specific.

That is one thing I liked about this movie, as different in other Sub movies, where the main character is the Sonar Tech, where usually he is just a supporting character.

The opening scene with the divers and then the RPG was pretty good.

Being a Sonar tech is like being a Air Traffic Controller in NY..except you cant really talk to the people you are watching/listening too.
Underway our schedules are 6 on 12 off, and drills, training etc etc in between during normal days schedules, 0700 to 1600. When you get off of watch, your brain is drained, due to some of the areas of the world we venture into. Very stressful, yet rewarding sometimes, :)

Can you get a good sleep on the sub? Always amazes me how one can live in that cramped of conditions for prolonged periods.

How often can you shower? Large storage of clean water for drinking and hygiene?

Sleep is very hard for some. You are never on a routine. You cant go to bed every night at the same time. Some kids are 6 hours on, 6 hours off. In those six off, you can eat, shower, do laundry.. But, its very difficult to sleep correctly and get into REM..
On newer boats, 688 and up, we can make 10K of fresh water a day for showers and food etc. Our Potable water tank has white Moss in it which filters the distilled water we make.
But, we still dont take showers longer than needed. Rinse, scrub with soap, and rinse off. Get out.
On an 688, we have 5 showers, excluding CO/XO who share one.

Longest I was under water without going to Periscope Depth was 86 days. Not fun.. But we were busy.
Most of the time we go up to PD at least once a day, before certain events then its mission critical.
And we dont have enough beds for everyone, so we have many people share. Hot racking. 3 men, 2 racks.. Rotate through.

Yeah no kidding......

My deepest respect for anyone who has or is serving on a Submarine. They must weigh nut sacks during initial Navy physicals, and those with the heaviest sets of nuts get assigned to Sub duty. 86 days without surfacing! Damn.....

Nukes and A-gang especially, and even more so on older boats in worse mechanical condition.

Nukes have way more qualifications to do than anyone else aboard, so they get even less sleep for a longer period. Showers, or the lack of them, are more of a concern because the front end of the boat tends to be cold (for the benefit of electronics) while the back end is a steam bath.

A-gang (non-nuke mechanics) were the only other group aboard whose equipment routinely required similar amounts of work and time for maintenance and repair underway compared to the nukes. Most time-consuming maintenance and repairs for stuff in the front end of the boat was accomplished in port between deployments.
