Did it seem an over reaction to fire at the submersible?

No because there could be someone alive on the Kansas City.

The Barosso wasn't expecting anyone but the Navy to be at the Kansas City site. When they found out that they're weren't they took precautions to fire. I thought it was a normal reaction on the Barosso's part considering he didn't know who they were or what the were doing. True...it could have been a disaster.

Probably but they were panicking at the time.

I don't suppose the Captain could take the risk of the sub being hostile. He wanted to gain brownie points from the US Navy. He'd have received nil points if he'd let anything happen on his watch.

No, the Brazilian ship didn’t know who they were or why they were there
