SSM listens to and classifies contacts. TSM tracks them.

Both scrub out the control room and 2 deck and do sailor type things with big string and stuff

Hey smartarse - sonar is a type of sensor...

From answers.com:
A device that measures or detects a real-world condition, such as motion, heat or light and converts the condition into an analog or digital representation. An optical sensor detects the intensity or brightness of light, or the intensity of red, green and blue for color systems
:roll:

In your case, a sonar set fits nicely into this definition...

The S used to be Sonar, till recently.
SSM's listen to the surrounding vessels, assess what type of vessel it is whether it be ships, other submarines or your average fishing vessel, and then pinpoint its position. They then pass this information on to the TSM's who plot the position of said vessel and help create a picture of what is going on around the boat. This aids in navigation, tracking of (enemy) vessels and keeping the boat safe. Both are trained in Ships Protection, for when it is moored up and both end up doing alot of cleaning. As to preferences, it really is down to the individual and what they make of it.
Both have good parts, both have shit parts, now stop fannying about and toss a coin between the two or something. :D

What did you think they did? Bimble around aimlessly and fire weapons occasionally hoping they'll hit something worthwhile?
