Britain threatens Russian submarines with a new anti-submarine aircraft


Commenting on the transfer to the British Air Force of the first of nine P-8 Poseidon anti-submarine aircraft, Wigston said that with the introduction of this aircraft, Russian submarines can no longer be unpunished off the coast of the UK, as "they have nowhere else to hide."

This fundamentally changing balance of power anti-submarine aircraft for maritime patrolling is able to detect and monitor the most advanced submarines that Russia is currently armed with. They must admit that they have nowhere to hide.

- he said.

Earlier it was reported that on October 31 this year, a ceremony was held at the Boeing corporation in Seattle for the transfer of the first Boeing P-8A Poseidon base patrol aircraft by the Royal Air Force. On the same day, the plane flew to the air base aviation US Navy Jacksonville Florida to attend a training course for British personnel. The arrival of the aircraft in the UK is scheduled for March 2020.

In total, the British Ministry of Defense plans to purchase nine new new generation anti-submarine aircraft, worth almost 4 billion.

    it's hard to see a gopher, especially if he is not there ... we have positional areas not next to small shavings .. "they cannot with impunity" and the punishment has grown?

      Russian submarines will no longer be able to cover up with impunity off the coast of the United Kingdom, said British Air Force chief of staff Michael Wigston regarding the adoption of the first Boeing P-8 Poseidon anti-submarine patrol aircraft.

      Another British "file-like" again!

      Firstly. You can’t forbid anyone to arm yourself!
      And secondly. To make Russian submarines ever "HIDDEN" in the waters Great Britain, and were not there without the permission of the United Kingdom, then I hear about it FOR THE FIRST TIME!

          In England they already say that this is not a neck at all, but a periscope!
          And it's time to stock up on oatmeal.

    even if they spend money on expensive re-equipment, it’s just the topic with Brexit, we must support the myth that there are not only submarines, but Poseidons are already on guard. Let them seek the Kraken wassat

    A naive stupid man! In order to get small Britain, our boats do not even need to sail away from the place of basing. We are Russians, God is with us!

    And what? Well, I saw, well, I discovered. And then what? The fleet of Aglitsky is in collapse, The mistress of the seas has long surrendered. Just someone again warmed up well on the kickbacks. Something like this.

    This fundamentally changing balance of power anti-submarine aircraft ...
    Well, if just one plane, which will arrive only in March next year, radically changes the balance of power, then of course. The British live under the slogan - "Not a day without mentioning Russia!" Perhaps this stimulates them no worse than psychotropic drugs.

        I read the whole article, do not worry. They are waiting for the first by March 2020, but are already announcing a change in the balance of power. What specific change?
        Russian submarines can no longer hide with impunity off the coast of the United Kingdom
        And our boats have nothing more to do, how to take shelter off the British coast?

      The mention of Russia excites the cold blood of British reptilians ... They begin to move and crawl from place to place. They are nervous, so they are afraid!

      It is possible ... If it rises a few kilometers - the whole GB will be in full view. Hang in the air and guard yourself until kerosene runs out ... lol

      They should not be threatened, but put this medical contraceptive rubber on the head of the British Air Force headquarters Michael Wigston on his head so that you can immediately see what kind of hu stop the duality of man. And he should be poured into the reserve so that little Michael would no longer bother Russia.

    Good versatile patrol aircraft.
    Bombs, missiles, torpedoes, mines, bui-anything.
    Advanced electronics, a combat radius of 3700 km, will create problems with an inconspicuous exit to the Atlantic. Nor is Norway buying the party, so access to the Atlantic will not be easy.
    And what was spun there for the sake of a red word does not matter. The reality of the plane is very good and create problems

    How hard it is to come to terms with the fact that small Britain is no longer the "mistress of the seas"! Phantom pains however.
