Screwup with a picture
Somebody definitely botched his job while writing the explanation under the sonar screen picture. HNoMS Vale (N53), built in Norway, renamed Virsaitis in Latvia and quite afloat, thank you very much, is NOT the same Virsaitis that was built in Rostock, Germany in 1916 and drowned in 1941 (doesn't have an article on en.wp). Whoever writes about ships should realize that ship names are reused quite often, check their facts and use at least the tiniest bit of common sense. Still, neither of them has ever been Estonian. Latvia and Estonia are two different countries (if you don't understand that, go back to school and start with the geography class). Also, That bloody wreck lies near Hanko, as it drowned while trying to evacuate the Soviet military base there, so as there is no comment on the exact location on the photo's page in Commons, it would be logical to suppose it is in Finnish (or international) waters, unless there is some evidence. Anyway, I fixed the text because I was asked to, please don't relink to the wrong article again and make me come back. Thanks. --Oop (talk) 23:02, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

Sonar for underground imaging?
I thought there was a type of sonar that could be used for underground imaging, but I saw nothing about this in the article. I'm not talking about Ground-penetrating radar, because that uses radio waves. Does anyone have any information on this? A simple Web search turned up nothing useful.
