Then, on Oct. 27, a Soviet Whiskey-class sub suddenly and very publicly ran aground on the rocks inside a Swedish military base, using a route that had been used previously by another Soviet intruder, these sources said.

Ah yes, 'Whiskey on the Rocks'.

"it was decided at the Swedish-Weinberger meetings to trap and detain a Soviet submarine... These sources also said U.S. technology was able to manipulate the sub's instruments, causing them to exhibit "false readings" until it was misled and went aground. "We had that sort of technology," one of the former intelligence officials said."

Early non-lethal "work-accident" ping.
