US 6th Fleet “did not notice Russian escort” during Arctic anti-submarine exercises

65

In the United States of America publish photos of joint exercises of the naval forces of the United States and Britain in the Arctic latitudes. The surface ships and submarines of the two states participate in the maneuvers, and the American side, as VO previously reported, is represented by the ships of the so-called European-African Command 6 fleet Navy.


The full surface composition of maneuvers that take place in the Norwegian and Barents Seas is not far from the Russian maritime borders: American warships Porter, Donald Cook, DDG-80 Roosevelt, auxiliary vessel T-AOE-6 Supply, and frigate Royal British Navy "Kent".

The photographs reportedly indicate that “during the concentration of the ships on the chosen combat course, there was no escort from the naval equipment of foreign states, including Russia,”.



This statement was ridiculed by users in the United States, noting that the command itself had announced the conduct of anti-submarine exercises in the Arctic latitudes.

“It turns out that if the ships of the British Navy and the US Navy did not notice any escort, then the exercises themselves can be considered a failure. After all, they themselves were definitely noticed there.”

Indeed, the absence of surface ships in the immediate vicinity of the same US-British squadron does not mean that the exercises were left unattended. Especially when you consider that the ships of the USA and Britain consciously decided to conduct their Arctic maneuvers in fact in the zone of constant combat alertness of the Russian Northern Fleet.

    Without mentioning Russia, any US and NATO exercises lose all meaning ... you need an enemy ... you need sharpness ... you need to catch fear on the western man in the street and justify all these military maneuvers ... which we are now observing.
    However, there is another side to the coin ... the Northern Sea Route ... on which the Anglo-Saxons laid their eyes.

      6th US fleet is the most robber And in which case he will be the first ..
      And we will fight for the Arctic!

      Somehow everyone in this story puts something on someone: the bourgeoisie put their eyes on the NSR, our submariners catch them on the periscope, and the VKS give out the exact coordinates of individual targets - and that's when it comes to affairs: only our houses, and uninvited guests always worse ... somehow then they will start looking for them ... laughing

      I don’t understand, they looked at the pictures from the lack of periscopes and enemy ships? Tricky move. I hope at least not the same picture was transferred from ship to ship laughing

        As you know, the 2018nd fleet was restored in 2, so it would be nice to have a reference based on which such an assumption is made in the note. Not nitpicking for the sake of accuracy.

    And the accompanying ones should be in the photograph? All the same, the 21st century. It’s not necessary to come close to the missed targets. It’s only missiles, if you manage to take pictures, flying over them in the event of real hostilities.

        I agree. even one cruiser with 16 anti-ship missiles - excessively against an AUG of 5 ships
        2 RCC Volcano with thermonuclear charges are blown up for sifting from SM-3/6 SAM and neutralizing Spike radar
        Well, 6 anti-ship missiles in the usual equipment against 5 troughs, in the aircraft carrier 2 of the Volcano
        the remaining 8 RCC Volcano for the next AUG
        * And the carcasses (Tu-22M3 with X-32) have not yet arrived, and Antey (Project 949 with P-700) is still in ambush

        Not only this, but also the work of radio and communications equipment, and even photographing from different angles, in order to study changes in ship superstructures and antennas. All this must be done always when they come so close to us - it’s cheaper to obtain intelligence information.

    В прошлом году вдоль Балтийского моря летали стратегические бомбардировщики B-52H оснащенные крылатыми ракетами AGM-86 с ядерными боеголовками мощностью 150 килотонн! По слухам отрабатывали атаку на Санкт-Петербург и базы Балтийского флота! Я думаю после этого инцидента нет никакого смысла сотрудничать с этим американо-британским образованием под названием НАТО! А сейчас они прислали эскадру оснащенную двумя сотнями крылатых ракет "Томагавк", этого более чем достаточно чтобы уничтожить базы Северного флота!
