HMAS Rankin (SSK 78)

The Australian Collins-class submarine, HMAS Rankin (SSK 78), enters Pearl Harbor for a port visit after completing exercises in the Pacific region. Rankin is currently testing the deployment of women on submarines after completing modifications to the boat. On Dec. 12, 1992, the Minister for Defense Science and Personnel announced that women would be eligible for service in the Collins-class submarines after a Submarine Integration Study (SIS).
