In the United States named 5 submarines that can complete the history of mankind


There are five types of submarines that, thanks to their powerful weapons, can lead to completion stories of humanity. These are Russian and American nuclear submarines.


In the popular American magazine The National Interest, an article appeared on the types of submarines that can destroy humanity.

Of course, American experts first praised the US Navy submarines.



"Ohio"


The third-generation Ohio class nuclear submarine entered service with the US Navy during the Cold War. From 1981 to 1997 submarines were regularly produced in a series, forming the basis of the combat power of the nuclear submarine fleet U.S.A. 14 out of 18 submarines in service are armed with Trident intercontinental ballistic missiles. On each submarine - 24 such missiles. The remaining 4 submarines are armed with cruise missiles.

Since 2016, nine Ohio-class submarines are deployed in the Pacific Ocean, five more - in the Atlantic Ocean. In total, the U.S. Navy plans to leave 14 of the 18 submarines of this type. The authors of The National Interest write that one such boat can destroy 288 targets the size of a city in half an hour, wiping them off the face of the earth.

"Colombia"


Since the Ohio nuclear submarines are already recognized as outdated, in 2020 the US will begin construction of a new Columbia-class ballistic missile submarine. By 2031, the naval command expects to receive the first such submarine, and submarines of this class will be in service with the American fleet almost until the very end of the XNUMXst century.
The new SSBNs will be larger than the Ohio boats, but at the same time, 16 Trident missiles will be deployed on each of the submarines. Like the Ohio, a submarine can hit a variety of targets, destroying entire cities. By the way, the new submarines will use a number of Virginia-class submarines.



Nuclear submarine of project 955 Borey


The authors of The National Interest magazine emphasize that Russia is doing its best to maintain parity with the United States in one direction, and this area is nuclear weapon. Among the most dangerous Russian nuclear submarines, the submarines of project 955 Borey are called the first. According to the Americans, the Boreas are the quietest Russian submarines with ballistic missiles on board. Each submarine is equipped with 16 Bulava missiles.

Project 667BDRM nuclear submarine Dolphin


The main marine component of Russia's nuclear triad so far remains submarines of project 667BDRM "Dolphin". Each such boat is armed with 16 R-29RMU ballistic missiles. A submarine can launch missiles in any direction and from any position, including from a depth of 55 meters. In total, from 1984 to 1990, 7 such submarines were produced. In 2010-2018 each of the boats was repaired.

Nuclear submarine of project 885 (08850) "Ash"


The fourth-generation Russian multi-purpose nuclear submarine Yasen began to be designed back in the late 1970s, but the lead submarine of the project was accepted into the Russian Navy only in June 2014. According to experts, the Ash can be compared with American submarines of the Virginia class, and in terms of the range of tasks performed, with submarines of the Ohio class. The boat is armed with 3M-55 Onyx, 3M-14 Zircon or 3M-14 Caliber cruise missiles. The K-560 Severodvinsk nuclear submarine, according to the Americans, can approach 2000 km to the east coast of the USA and, hitting American territory, hit targets up to the Great Lakes region.

Thus, American authors nevertheless leave “leadership” in the most powerful and dangerous submarines for Russia. After all, the submarines of the Colombia class have not yet entered service. It turns out that against the 3 Russian classes of the most dangerous submarines, the United States has only one - the Ohio class.

      But there are no other nuclear weapons, so fortunately there are no people who want to let them in.

        Yes, but the United States applied, rather seriously considered the question of the use of the loaf kernel in Korea and Vietnam. And I saw the Shark in Vladik, even impresses from afar.

          Guess not guess, but from which submarine the world will collapse, it may not even know. recourse And what's the point in this case, to measure whoever submarine slaughter. You can kill everything only once, but not ten and not a hundred, as in computer toys.

    It turns out that against the 3 Russian classes of the most dangerous submarines, the United States has only one - the Ohio class.

    Just the words of our physical education teacher - today against the national team of three sixth grades, fourteen out of the 10th “A” will play.

    How is a submarine with 24 missiles capable of destroying 288 targets, how is it?

      24 missiles, each with 8 to 14 warheads. Only about half an hour they most likely lie.

          Specialists strongly doubt the ability of the Ohio submarine to release the entire BK (not only in 30 minutes, but in general). Max. Ohio volley in the history of the USA - 4 missiles, in addition, there are cases when even after one launch the submarine went for repair - cracks appeared in the hull. So there is a very high probability that she would rather drown than launch all the missiles.

      How is a submarine with 24 missiles capable of destroying 288 targets, how is it?
      Excuse me, what do you know about missiles with nuclear weapons? What, they’ve never heard that missiles have long carried not one nuclear warhead, but several multiple ones? For example, Trident-3 carries from 8 to 14 separable NBC. So in theory, 24 missiles can carry 14 nuclear warheads each with a power of 100 Kt., Total 336 objects can in theory be destroyed by one boat. As for the 288 goals, it was most likely considered that out of 14 nuclear warheads, 2 would be false and 12 would be military. Most likely so.

    Polonsky at NI needs to send a resume. There, the same level of competence, "observers" write.
    "Finish the story" is not a boat, but an ICBM. The name of the submarine does not matter. Everything that carries ballistic missiles is dangerous. The author forgot about Wangard, Triumphan and Jin, and the Indians also have 1 boat.
    In general, of course, it’s time for the editorial staff to stop copying from NI and SOHU dumps. This greatly reduces the level of VO. There are a sufficient number of decent English-language resources such as Defense News.

    Normally, the boat is armed with 3M-55 Onyx, 3M-14 Zircon or 3M-14 Caliber cruise missiles. The K-560 Severodvinsk nuclear submarine, according to the Americans, can approach 2000 km to the east coast of the USA and, hitting American territory, hit targets up to the Great Lakes region.
    Approach 2000km, but it's like a neighbor imperceptibly climb into the garden

    There is a good foreign film. "At the last coast" or something similar in translation. So there it was about one such nuclear-powered submarine that survived, reached the surviving Australia, received a false signal, scanned the situation in North America, returned, but the radiation cloud was indomitable approaching Australia ... The finale is death, only everyone has their own.

      It’s only called “On the Last Bank,” about a nuclear war with China.
      A good film, an impression produces a strong one.

    I, Rudolph, generally believe that Ash is far-fetched. Nevertheless, in terms of its potential, it cannot be compared with missile cruisers armed with SLBMs. So the title should be slightly corrected: 4 instead of 5

    None. This is a blunder by the author. It can hit 288 targets. But she cannot physically destroy 288 targets ... And besides, on the Ohio for several years now there have been 20 missiles, and not 24. All armatures have been dismantled in 4 mines and they can no longer use missiles

    Theoretically, Trident-2 can carry 14 W-76 warheads. But never tested with them. Only with 12 EMNIP. The missiles are now 20 on the boat, not 24. But they don’t lie about half an hour. Even faster. Again, do not destroy, but hit 288 targets ...

    Do not say nonsense. If 2 or 4 missiles are fired for test purposes, this does not mean that the boat will not be able to release the rest of the ammunition. This stupidity - checking the possibility of salvo launch of the entire ammunition was carried out before the collapse of the Union. So what? Tests have shown that the boat will remain intact, though no one knows how accurately missiles will come to the target with such a launch. Tests on the strength of the boat, and not on the accuracy test

    Alenksander! Trident 3 does not exist in nature. There was only SLBM Trident-1 / Trident S-4 and Trident-2 / Trident D5. And SLBM Trident-3 does not yet exist in nature. Perhaps a new missile for Colombia will be called Trident. -3 "or Trident E-6, but not now ...

    It would not be bad to compare the number of Ohio submarines alone with the number of submarines of all of our three classes. Moreover, I don’t understand at all how how our only "Ash" got here? There KR with special warheads one or two miscalculated. And in general, it is a tactical weapon, not a strategist ...
