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-class submarine is 5300 tons (surface displacement - 4700 tons), hull length - 99 meters, diameter - 8,8 meters. The maximum diving depth is over 350 meters, the speed under water is over 25 knots. Autonomy - 50 days. Crew - 65 people, as well as up to 15 MTR fighters.

      Submarine "Suffren" is equipped with four 533-mm tubes for heavy guided torpedoes F21. The arsenal includes upgraded anti-ship missiles SM-39 "Exocet" and cruise missiles "Scalp Naval" to destroy the coastal infrastructure.

      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 should be afraid of GISU "Yantar" in an amicable way, but they, like suckers, fell for the "Academician" ... Looks like a tradition: They respect scientific titles ... But what about - the French Academy of Sciences is the oldest 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

      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 if we assume that our ships followed the tests - is this something unusual? As far as I remember, ships of "partners" are brought up to 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 oceanographic research vessel Yantar studied benthic forms of life. laughing

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

    Judging by the photo, our Boikiy corvette and tanker came under the surveillance of the British Navy. In the foreground is the patrol ship "Mersey" 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 saying !? If ours are within a radius of 200 miles, then they are watching! Although the latest tests are being monitored by all the services of the world, the truth is that we do it in a special way, it makes everyone very nervous.

    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
