Ok, so i torpedoed a Fiji cruiser in the open ocean, with depth under keel over 1000m. The ship sank bow first, and i followed it with the camera all the way until it jsut disappeared. Still, it's scared me a bit when i realized how much speed the ship picked up and how hard it must have hit the ocean floor. Which also reminds me of the TV show about Bismarck... how a heavy hatch got blown off with immense water pressure when the ship hit the bottom and water inside got crushed and found its only way out.

Titanic estimated speed at time of impacting ocean floor was near 80mph.
