U 137

U 137, was a Soviet Whiskey-Class submarine that ran aground off the Swedish coast in 1981. At the time the incident was generally seen as a proof of wide spread Soviet infiltration of the Swedish coastline. Today most experts believe the mishap was a mistake caused by incompetence and faulty technical equipment rather than an attempt to chart Swedish coastal defences.
