HMS Urge (N17) is a World War II submarine wreck in Malta. HMS Urge was a U class British submarine, 58 m in length and 4.9 m wide. On 27th April 1942 Urge sank few kilometres off the coast of Malta after striking a naval mine. All 44 aboard lost their lives. HMS Urge wreck was found in 2019. The wreck is upright at depth of about 130 m and in good condition except the badly damaged bow.
