US Navy held exercises in the Arctic

60
Two US nuclear submarines have worked the ascent from under the ice on the exercises in the Arctic ICEX-2018, writes "RIA News"with reference to the website of the country's naval forces.


Exercises are held in the Beaufort Sea. The submarine of Great Britain also takes part in them. The Hartford multi-purpose submarine (Seawolf project) and Connecticut impact submarine (Los Angeles project), armed with cruise missiles, conducted an ascent in the Arctic Circle north of Alaska.

US Navy held exercises in the Arctic


Details of the exercises are not given, but the message has a photo in which cuttings of submarines stick out from under the thickness of the ice at a distance of several hundred meters from each other.

We must constantly train with our submarine units and partners to remain experienced in this hemisphere. The presence of both submarines on the surface is a clear demonstration of our skills in the Arctic
- said the commander of the center of submarine warfare, the US Navy Rear Admiral James Pitts.

Earlier it was reported that during the exercises, two American submarines and the British "Trenchant" will conduct arctic transitions, ascent to the North Pole, and collect scientific data.

            What caravan can go to the Beaufort Sea? You at least look at the globe first ... A relatively thin ice, or rather wormwood, is sought by the echo-meter.

              That is yes. In vain they smear. A very alarming signal, before we only did this.
              However, sooner or later they would inevitably come to this. But we still haven’t thrown something into the American analogue of SOSUS in the North Sea. Now you have to hurry.

            Ascent in the area of ​​the Arctic Circle north of Alaska was carried out by a multi-purpose submarine "Hartford" (project "Seawolf") and an attack submarine "Connecticut" (project "Los Angeles"), which are armed with cruise missiles ...
            Surfaced beautifully, but from this position to carry out firing cruise missiles ... impossiblebecause torpedo tubes and vertical shafts are under the miracle of ice breaking through the cabin of a submarine ...
            Because Harpoon and Tomahawk missiles (up to 50 missiles) are launched only through 8 torpedo tubes (Seawolf project); 12 vertical mines and 4 torpedo tubes (up to 20 missiles) (project "Los Angeles").

      The other is excusable, but you were kind of a leader on an all-Union scale, and there ...
      On August 3 1958 of the year, the Nautilus nuclear submarine (USA) became the first ship to reach the North Pole (underwater). Another American nuclear submarine, the Skate, surfaced at the pole of 17 on March 1959 of the year, becoming the first ship on the surface of the water at the North Pole. 17 July 1962 year, the Soviet nuclear submarine Leninsky Komsomol became the first Soviet submarine to reach the North Pole.
      Facts are a stubborn thing ...
      But no one disputes the championship of NK on the “cap”.
      On 17 of August 1977 of the year, the Soviet atomic icebreaker "Arctic" for the first time in the history of navigation reached the North Pole in surface swimming.

    In the distance between boats while sailing under the ice. In the picture between them there are no more than 2 cable ... For some, this figure will not say anything, for the sailor it will say a lot ... you still need to add the relative position of the boats. Let's just say that the navigator is very good there.

      And it would be just for such an ascent - he then unscrewed the Bosko navigators angry .That would take this photo and "finish" the location of the buildings and see how they risked. And I suspect that the collision of two submarines under an ice field is more than not a gift. Well, if one torpedo bay bends (if it doesn’t smell), then the second can bend the screws - and then what? fool HOW would they pull her out of there, that they would beg to bow to the terrible Putin to beg to send our icebreaker? laughing

    It is not clear why they do not completely pop up? ours always pop up completely. And then the sailors run around the rocket deck and the ice floes are dropped from the covers of the mines. It’s also a kind of training.
    But the skill of the Americans can be envied - knowing the decent length of their submarines, it can be estimated that Los Angeles almost ran into the screws of Sivulf.

And the Wolf (like Virginia) was specially built for ice hunting. By the way, part of the Elk is also equipped for Arctic missions. The Yankees know that our SSBNs from under the ice can greatly upset their States, and so they are preparing for an ice war. We, too...

    2. The ice is very thin for the Arctic at such a time
    3. Surfacing with ice breaking (and not in wormwood) without a good reason (usually emergency) is the height of the staff’s “fantasy”.
