Comments: Royal Australian Navy – Tally Band – HMAS Otama.
HMAS Otama (SS 72/SSG 72) was an Oberon class submarine of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). Built in Scotland, the submarine was commissioned into the RAN in 1978; the last of the class to enter service. Otama remained in service until late 2000, when she was decommissioned and sold to the Western Port Oberon Association, a community group that plan to preserve the submarine as a museum ship and build the Victorian Maritime Centre.
