British submarine hit the "Black Hole" off the coast of Syria

13
As reported by the British newspaper The Times, an Astute-class nuclear submarine was unable to launch twenty cruise missiles at targets in Syria on the night of April 14. The reason for this was the pursuit of submarines by Russian submariners.


According to the newspaper, a diesel-electric submarine of the Varshavyanka or Black Hole type, as it was nicknamed in the West, is from the Black Sea fleet The Russian Navy discovered and began to pursue the British submarine. Later, two frigates and an IL-38 anti-submarine aircraft joined the Varshavyanka. These actions of the Russian fleet did not allow the British to approach a sufficient distance to strike in Syria.

The Russian Ministry of Defense does not comment on this incident. However, the Times points out that they received information about the actions of Russian submarines from their sources in the military command of the British army.

    As I said earlier, I think that in this story our multipurpose nuclear submarines were not complete. I have a suspicion that Astyud was not driven by Varshavyanka, but our Ash tree. Why? At that moment, no one knew whether it would be necessary to destroy the coalition carriers of the Kyrgyz Republic and the withdrawal from this task of two Varshavyanks, and even two watchdogs, this is not logical, given the situation at that time.

      Yes, nobody was close there. This is something that went wrong with the islanders, so they decided to turn the arrows on us, they say, Russians (they surrounded them and threatened to use force) were nearby

        Astyud drove for two days. Moreover, given the low-speed Varshavyanka, and the maximum depth of immersion, and so on, for me, the expression that diesel-electric submarines “drove” the nuclear submarines sounds a little strange.

        Yeah ... just from time to time on the Aglitsky vessel there was a knock on the hull and a rude voice with an accent pronounced - Eurybadi home ?! laughing

          To which the Aglitsky moroman, peering into the phrasebook, shouted "Moscow - Vyёrёnizh, huyu dogonyonich .."

      not Warsaw

      I also think that they are not Warsaw ...
      DEPL cannot chase nuclear submarines ...
      can only guard in ambush ...

        That's right, shopping mall Varshavyanka is an ambush sub. And with its 24 knots and 300 meters of immersion ... well, very big doubts. But if it was our Ash, then everything falls into place. In addition, the hunt for such nuclear submarines is just the profile of a multi-purpose.

          in general, submarines always run at low silent speed, and this speed is less than 10 knots for both nuclear submarines and diesel-electric submarines. The maximum speed of the nuclear submarines is used only to break away from the pursuit or to catch up with a high-speed surface target such as an aircraft carrier of a frigate cruiser. All that diesel above-water also goes slowly in cruising mode to save fuel. nuclear strategists never drive at all except when you need to break away from the pursuit. Anyway, full-speed roll-in for a submarine is an extreme case - after all, when a boat starts threshing with all the screws in full, it reveals its position - and under combat conditions it is guaranteed to be destroyed - because it’s pointless to practice such a way as in peace war time .

    Here eggs hinder the bad dancer's campaign. If their submarine drove through the Mediterranean Sea. I think they would hardly have spoken so openly, because this is a blow to product quality. Here, most likely, either the toad was strangling about missiles, or technical problems.

      Well, if this is true, and ours really caught someone there on the hot. So either they poke their faces on occasion or they didn’t capture anyone.
