British media reported a multiply increased activity of Russian submarines

31
Over the past 6 years, the activity of Russian submarines off the coast of Britain has increased by 10 times; Look message of the newspaper The Daily Mail.




The publication, referring to the spokesman for the Ministry of Defense Gavin Williamson, notes that such a number of submarines near the borders of the United Kingdom could only be “watched” at the very peak of the Cold War.

Recently the former head of the royal fleet Admiral George Zambellas told British parliamentarians that Britain’s capabilities in anti-submarine warfare are "inadequate to current risks."

In the opinion of Williamson, Britain “has a reliable defense of its ships,” since it actively cooperates with NATO allies.

We are investing 3 billion pounds in our growing budget to purchase nine new P8 aircraft for maritime patrols,
a spokesman said.

Meanwhile, the newspaper notes that last month the British fleet had to seek help from the United States and Canada to track down the Russian submarine.

Another retired general, Richard Barrons, said at the beginning of the week that the British Armed Forces are “outdated by 20 years” and cannot cope with “existential risks” for the country. He called for an increase in funding for the army by spending money on air defense weapons, unmanned aerial vehicles and cyber warfare capabilities.

    And how do they know how many submarines are there? I always thought that the main thing for the submarine is stealth.

      They told you English
      such a number of submarines at the borders of the United Kingdom could only be "observed" at the very peak of the Cold War.
      It is to "observe" and it is in quotation marks. Or do you not take the word for the gentlemen from their club? laughing It is argued that Russian submarines walk past the shores of "Mother England", regularly and in order, one must believe.
      the activity of Russian submarines off the coast of Britain increased 10 times
      True, they have not seen one. On the other hand, if they leave Severomorsk to the Atlantic, where else should they go?

        Class i.e. before they did not see 2 submarines and now 20 pieces do not see. By the way, if you still can’t reliably detect a single submarine, then you need to say that there are 100 submarines and everything around their island.
        In order to catch up even more, you can also report that at night submarine crews go ashore and rob, rape women, kill men and old people, but of course they eat children.

    activity Russian submarines off the coast of Britain increased

    A submarine is floating. The sailors are trying to find out the coordinates from the boatswain.
    - Guys, at least kill me - I don’t remember. I remember - they started drinking from
    Canary Islands drinks
    I remember - England seemed to be. Where now
    we do not remember. Comrade Captain, help out!
    Captain:
    - Okay. We emerge to a depth of three meters.
    Looks at the periscope:
    - Yeah, fishing flotilla. First, second, third torpedo
    devices - fire, radio operators - listen to SOS, record
    coordinates, boatswain, mind you, the last time I help out ... am belay

    No, with masturbation, along with the Swedes, they are big specialists in this business, they have been catching Russian submarines for about 50 years, but they have never found one.

    In the sense that the submarines stopped swimming directly and began to drift under water ??? Do they interpret this Activity?

    Such statements are made with the expectation of knocking out money for the development of the British Navy, so they should not be taken seriously.

    All these articles about the sharply increased Russian threat pursue an understandable goal, the same thing for the hundredth time - an increase in the cost of own forces. This should not mislead us about our real power. But who is there at Britain suddenly walked 10 times more? The SSBN and other Boreas, by definition, should stay away, the only ash tree that is unclear in what condition it is (because it is essentially a crude and experimental unfinished sample) makes ten noise there - hardly. Leopards 971? Duc only became less. So we will not build illusions.
