“The Taking of K-129” Josh Dean In early 1968, a Soviet ballistic missile sub went missing in a remote area of the Pacific and despite a furious search, the Soviet Navy was unable to locate it. The US Navy, however, was able to locate the wreck and decided this was an intelligence haul too great to pass up.
