British Navy sent a "fiberglass" ship to intercept Russian submarines

29
The British fleet was forced to send a "plastic" mine ship to escort Russian submarines and a support ship sailing near British waters. RIA News Post Daily Mail.




According to a newspaper citing a naval source, this incident occurred back in 2017. Due to congestion fleet command was forced to send a lightly armed ship for escort. Moreover, the British Ministry of Defense usually reports cases of interception, but this time "the incident was classified because of fears that it would become known about the shortage of ships in the country."

As the newspaper noted, a guard ship armed with an anti-missile system is usually sent to intercept. However, "in August last year, London had to resort to the Cattistock anti-mine ship, built of fiberglass."

Earlier, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Kingdom Nick Carter admitted that the British armed forces can hardly correspond to the military capabilities of Russia.

          By the way, we also make fiberglass minesweepers here, project 12700. But for the promotion of submarines or more "weighty" ships, it is not intended.

          A bottle from Pepsi should also not swim in the sea. The submarine does not recognize it at the ascent. So with these you can.

        Well, after all, once England was the mistress of the seas, and then God forbid soon to protect their shores. It’s as if they didn’t have to go out on such.

      Until then, the British fleet was “overloaded” that there was nothing to protect even its shores with. request

      They are stingy .... the old woman was the "mistress of the seas" and plundered peoples around the world and now the Falklands can "swim away" so they choose an opponent who has never been too tough for them.


      Earlier, the chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Kingdom, Nick Carter, admitted that the British armed forces could hardly meet the military capabilities of Russia.

      Their time is running out and the stocks of loot are decreasing.

    And what is “plasticoplastic”? Is Seclo a noun? Be careful with the design of the texts.

    To search and escort submarines, you need not a special hull (at least wooden, plywood or titanium), but good hydroacoustics. If this ship has it, it’s bad for a boat.

It is reported that during the deployment, the ship, together with its NATO partners, will take part in a series of international exercises, as well as in operations to destroy mines and other explosives since the twentieth century world wars.

    I can’t understand what commentators laugh with him. Our minesweepers of the project 12700 are also plastic, and the technology seemed almost as unique as “having no analogues in the world”, but here
    Put into operation: March 15, 1982

    and Nitsche floats yet. Though
    what will he do

    British Navy sent a "fiberglass" ship to intercept Russian submarines

    Having read the headline, at first I thought: again the imperishable from the Messenger of Mordovia. But no, wrong ..
    As the newspaper noted, usually a guard ship armed with an anti-ballistic system is sent to intercept

    and how the missile defense system to the functions of the PLO, can anyone explain? ..
