|According to Jonesy, what did the sonar computer recognize the Red October as when the silent drive was engaged?||'The Hunt for Red October'
Admiral Halsey. The book was called 'The Fighting Sailor'.
|At the end of the movie 'The Hunt for Red October' where are the Americans trying to hide the submarine 'Red October'?||The Hunt for Red October
Maine, USA. They are trying to hide the submarine in a river in Maine so that the Russian satellites will not detect it, because it is not near any military bases.
|In the movie the American sonar man on the USS 'Dallas' refers to a "crazy Ivan" while following the submarine 'Red October'. What is a "crazy Ivan"?||The Hunt for Red October
A sudden turn by a submarine. It is of course meant to indicate that the Russian submarine has made a sudden, unexpected turn. It is done to check to see if anyone is behind the Russian submarine. The only way to avoid detection is to go dead silent and make like a hole in the water.
Capt. Marko Ramius. While all of the names were actual captains in the movie, except Dr. Jack Ryan, he is a Ph.D., not a captain. Capt. Mancuso was captain of the USS 'Dallas', and Capt. Borodin was actually second in command of the 'Red October'.
|What do the Americans say the secret drive of the 'Red October' would sound like if they could hear it with their sonar?||The Hunt for Red October
Whales Humping. Well they say it would sound like whales humping or some seismic anomaly; anything but a submarine. The computer on the USS 'Dallas' thinks it is a Magma Displacement, but the people never think that it is that.
|What is the name of the secret drive aboard the 'Red October' submarine that allows them to run very quiet in the water?||The Hunt for Red October
Caterpillar Drive. It was called a caterpillar drive, and it has no moving parts so it allows the submarine to move very quickly through the water.
|In the movie, there is an area of underwater canyons that the submarine 'Red October' uses to hide in and head across the Atlantic ocean. What do the American's call this route? ||The Hunt for Red October
red route one. The Americans aboard the USS 'Dallas' submarine call this passage Red Route One, and they know that the Russians have very accurate maps of this area, so they don't try to follow them in there.
|One of the names of the United States' submarines in the movie was USS 'Dallas'. Is there a real submarine with this name?||The Hunt for Red October
Yes. The USS 'Dallas' is a real Nuclear Class Submarine.
1980s. The movie plot takes place during 1984. Actual release of the film was not done until 1989, but since the movie was based upon a book, written by Tom Clancy, he wrote the story, which took place in 1984 in the book.
Tommy Lee Jones. James Earl Jones, the voice of Darth Vader, is of course in this movie, as are Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin. Jones and Baldwin are American, while Connery plays the Russian submarine captain.
Russia. It is of course about a Russian submarine, or as it was when the movie was released, a Soviet submarine, since the country was still called the Soviet Union.
The Alfa. After several evasion techniques by Red October and Dallas, Tupolev's torpedo destroyed his own vessel.
Captain Tupolev. Tupolev was once Ramius' pupil, which explains his reaction to the news of his defection.
