There is an old saying among the surface navy, "There is no such thing as a friendly submarine."

The same, I would believe would hold true for aircraft, considering there are a few instances where Friendly ASW aircraft attacked friendly submarines.

Now, I am quite sure that the aircraft that did attack by mistake did so because the sub in question was acting in a questionable manner....

And of course, the tin cans that dropped on friendlies did so because they didnt know a friendly sub from a whale... or a row boat.

I mean, we all know that tin can sailors are a bit rattled since tin cans roll, pitch and otherwise ride rough seas in ways that would make any rodeo rough stock bull or bronc green with envy.
