Exercise Gib Splash: The Submarine Parachute Assistance Group

6 juil. 2015 by Forces TV


Parachuting might not be something you would readily associate with a submarine rescue, but for one specialist team it's the fastest way to get to a crew in distress.

The Royal Navy’s Submarine Parachute Assistance Group (SPAG) is a specialist emergency rescue team on constant standby to travel to stricken submarines.

The highly-trained group was formed in the 1960s when Naval commanders decided they needed to be able to get experts to the site of a submarine emergency as quickly as possible.

This video shows SPAG exercising in the waters around Gibraltar.
