USS Sawfish - Actual US Navy submarine used during the filming of the military anthology THE SILENT SERVICE/SYN/1957-58.


Created by Rear Admiral Thomas M. Dykers (retired), the series chronicled real-life stories (based on Navy files) about submarine warfare and intrigue during both the Second World War and the Korean War.

Commissioned on August 26, 1943, the USS Sawfish (SS-276) was decommissioned on June 20, 1946. Two years after acting as the backdrop for the TV series THE SILENT SERVICE, the USS Sawfish was scrapped by the Navy and sunk on April 1, 1960.
