Mini-submarine threat?

#1
This caption is from "Naval Engineering" Autumn 2012.

It's got me a bit puzzled.

During a recent Thursday war,
during one ship’s fifth week at
BOST, a gun crew were rectifying
defects which FOST staff had
injected as simulated damage.
The simulated damage on the 4.5”
gun was a loss of power caused
by a broken cable which required
an emergency run. The primary
threat at the time was from minisubmarines
and, as the 4.5” gun is
the most effective weapon against
this threat,
restoration of the 4.5”
gun was the number one Command
priority.

Any ASW boffins care to enlighten me please?

(I'm not trying to wind anyone up, it's just something I've never heard of and as far as I know the article is unclassified)
