Talk:BAP Pacocha (SS-48)

Page contents not supported in other languages.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


I have descriptions of how the eight casualties died, which use generic English ranks -- "enlisted man," "chief," &c., without giving names. I also have a list of names:

  • Capitán de Fragata Daniel Nieva Rodríguez
  • Teniente Segundo Luis Roca Sara
  • Técnico 2do. Orlando Valdez Pacheco
  • Técnico 3ro. Carlos Orosco León
  • Técnico 3ro. Rigoberto Gonzales Pisfil
  • Técnico 3ro. Walter García Morales
  • Oficial de Mar 1ro. Juan Oré Rojas
  • Oficial de Mar 2do. Carlos Grande Rengifo

I can map Nieva's, Sara's, and Grande's names to their death scenes. The remaining five, however -- the three who died of exposure and the two who drowned or were asphyxiated -- are kicking my butt, in part because none of my sources translate the técnico ranks properly. Can anyone help? --the Epopt 22:21, 11 Feb 2004 (UTC)


Much of this article is copied word-for-word from a US Navy report on the accident ( Other parts paraphrase the report with only minor changes. This may also be a copyright violation.

This article needs to be rewritten or deleted.

I've just had another look at the article. The firsst version was written in 2004 and contained most of the plagfiarised content, so there is no "good" version to revert to. There are also *zero* citations in the main text (there are some in the infobox, but mainly about the sub's histrory and specifications).

I don't think this article is in any way worth keeping on Wikipedia as it adds nothing to the official report
