Frigate and tanker of the Russian Navy suspected of tracking the latest French submarine

Russia tried to follow the tests of the newest leading French nuclear submarine of the Barracuda type - Suffren. It is reported by Naval News with reference to the newspaper La Manche Libre.


According to the French publication, in the test area of ​​the French submarine, ships and vessels of the Navy were discovered fleet Russia, and more precisely - the average marine tanker "Academic Pashin" and the "Guardian" corvette. It is assumed that they were sent to the coast of Cherbourg to specifically observe the sea trials of the latest submarine.

It is stated that the Russian corvette and tanker themselves came under the supervision of the French Navy, which controlled the course of the submarine’s tests, and on April 30 the Royal Navy of Great Britain reported on escorting the “Russians”. At the same time, Western journalists themselves note that the Russian tanker Akademik Pashin does not have any tracking equipment on board, but the Stereguschiy corvette can collect intelligence "if necessary."


According to Naval News, the Akademik Pashin tanker was only 30 miles from the test site since mid-April, and the Nikolay Chiker rescue tug and the Yantar oceanographic research vessel were spotted there. On April 27, the tanker passed the Dover Strait and went to Murmansk.

The French lead multipurpose nuclear submarine Suffren ("Suffren") of the new Barracuda project began factory sea trials on April 27, 2020 off the coast of Cherbourg, although the tests were supposed to begin in early March. French media do not exclude that the delay in testing is related to the surveillance of Russian courts.

      I like Barracuda more than Astyut.
      VIDEO: The French Navy has tested the latest atomic submarine. Video from the link below.
      The submarine displacement of the Barracuda-type submarines is 5300 tons (surface - 4700 tons), hull length - 99 meters, diameter - 8,8 meters. The maximum immersion depth is more than 350 meters, the speed under water is more than 25 knots. Autonomy - 50 days. The crew is 65 people, as well as up to 15 MTR fighters.

      The Suffren submarine is equipped with four 533-mm vehicles for heavy-duty F21 torpedoes. The arsenal includes upgraded SM-39 Exoset anti-ship missiles and Scalp Naval cruise missiles to destroy coastal infrastructure.

        Small sizes are small volumes for subsequent upgrades. The dimensions of the antenna are again.

      Russian Navy Tanker Suspected of Spying on Latest French Submarine

      Stupidity. stop
      The fact that this tanker can sink to a depth of more than 500 meters and go under water at a speed of more than 30 knots is not at all a reason for accusing him of spying on the latest French submarine yes

          Well, God be with them, near-minded ...
          They would need to be afraid of the GISU "Amber" in a good way, and they, like suckers, were led to the "Academician" ... Look at the tradition: Respect scientific titles ... But what about the oldest French Academy of Sciences in EUROPE. laughing

      I will tell you about the blatant fact:
      On the banks of the English Channel, by the fields
      Caught our simple Russian tanker
      The sight of six French batteries ...

      Well, in general, in vain did the French themselves crawl into this square request

    That's right, Russia has its own goals, and it fulfills them. Especially in neutral waters.

      Especially when you consider how many special NATO reconnaissance ships (excluding conventional combat), specialized aircraft, drones and other high-tech crap, constantly spinning near Russian bases in the Barents, Baltic, and Black Seas. In the Pacific, in wanting to look into Russian secrets, the Americans and the Japanese are stepping on each other's heels. That begs the logical question, why is the noise raised?

    Even assuming our ships watched the tests - is this something unusual? As far as I remember, the ships of the "partners" are being pulled into the test area of ​​any submarine of any country. So nothing out of the ordinary. In general, the tanker took water samples there, the corvette ensured safety, and the Yantar oceanographic research vessel studied benthic life forms. laughing

    It is claimed that the Russian corvette and tanker themselves fell under the supervision of the French Navy,

    Judging by the photo, our Boyky corvette and tanker came under the supervision of the British Navy. In the foreground a patrol ship "Mercey" VBR laughing

    I share the indignation of the French - to what these Russians have come, go without permission wherever they want. But what about the fact that these same French and British were watching our corvette and tanker. Also go without permission. Mayhem!

    We got upset about the tanker, and missed the hydrograph. We lost all qualifications.
    Although, of course, specific equipment can also be hung on a tanker, there is even more space for this entrails.

    Toto, I think that this fishfinder does not show fish, but some gays. So it was written - a jamb of blue French. They tried to get one lighter, not uplifting - slippery, like a fresh condom. It’s immediately clear - the Frenchman ... They spat, 50 rolled each, threw two 400 each and raked into more fish places ...

    And here the Russians are guilty - what are you "carrying"!? If ours is within a radius of 200 miles, then they’re watching! although the latest services are monitored by all the services of the world, the truth is that we get it in a special way, it really unnerves everyone.

    Goat understand what was observed.
    How else? God forgive me.
    Kindergarten. Everyone is watching. So it was, is and will be.
    Even lying on an inflatable mattress in the water area, I observe the exits of our boats from the factory. From the delivery base. hi
