      Only now they seem to see us near their shores, but we did not notice their submarine.
      (just, if you had noticed, there would have been shots from our Moscow region)

        Only now they seem to see us near their shores, but we did not see their submarine.

        And in my local Internet media I read in the morning that in the Arctic
        The atomic submarine of the US Air Force Toledo, breaking ice, surfaced near the Russian military base “Arctic Shamrock” in the Arctic, reports “Popular Mechanics”.

        So it was written yesterday. So while anti-submarines fly over the Atlantic and the Pacific, minke whales emerge in the Arctic. Though.
        And here is an excerpt from Popular Mechanics
        As part of the IceX 2020 submarine military exercises in the Arctic Ocean and the Beaufort Sea, the USS Toledo (SSN-769) Los Angeles-type nuclear submarine navigated from a base in Connecticut on the US east coast to the Arctic region in close proximity to the zone of interests of the Northern Fleet of the Russian Federation. The boundaries of the area of ​​possible American submarine actions during the Ice Exercise 2020 exercises are located not far from the Franz Josef Land archipelago, on one of the islands of which is the base of the Russian Ministry of Defense “Arctic Shamrock”.

        We must take into account such options.

        They themselves must understand that behind their submarines an eye and an eye are needed. wink That's why our planes are our eyes, ears and organs punishing underwater violators.

    And how many of them remain Tu-142? Maybe Mangohto will also restore the base and the military town? The east however is distant for most.
