Russian submarines in the North Atlantic became a "headache" of NATO

40

In recent years, the characteristics of the Russian Navy submarines have improved, and their crews have significantly improved their skills. The long and long campaigns of Russian submarines in the North Atlantic make NATO doubt its military superiority in this region.


About this writes the American edition of the Wall Street Journal.

Over the past few years, Russia has invested heavily in the modernization of its underwater fleetinherited from the Soviet Union. Now the Russian Federation has more silent and faster submarines that can go unnoticed at great depths and suddenly appear in the most unexpected places.

This is alarming for the NATO leadership, as Russian submarines are capable of disrupting US plans to quickly deploy troops across the Atlantic to Europe if the need arises. Moreover, in the near future it is planned to withdraw about a quarter of the American military contingent from Germany.

Americans are particularly worried about patrolling the Russian submarine fleet of the US East Coast.

And although NATO is in response to increasing the grouping of anti-submarine aircraft P-8A Poseidon in the UK, Norway and Iceland, this does not save the situation. Indeed, in recent years, thanks to its improved characteristics, Russian submarines are able to replay the Poseidons, hiding from them at the bottom of the Atlantic.

    Another article from a series of custom-made. It took money for some kind of program - a Russian underwater threat appeared. Nothing is new. We already went through this. At one time, the United States talked about the missile superiority of the USSR in order to receive additional funding, and talked about otsovaniya
    in strategic bombers. Now - submarines.

      Did she disappear somewhere? request laughing I mean, they need money constantly, and therefore the threat to them is permanent. yes Unless, the immediate source of the threat is changing. Yesterday they harassed Poseidon and Petrel, and today they are submarines.

      Now - submarines.

      In general, the fleet is very expensive. And in the case of the United States, in which the fleet is essentially the main force of the Armed Forces, this is an expensive question and, given their doctrine, necessary.

    I wonder how such a need may arise. Is the next “Normandy landing" planned as evacuation after a massive retaliatory nuclear strike?

      and the paragraph continues finally fire :))
      Moreover, in the near future it is planned to withdraw about a quarter of the American military contingent from Germany.

      that is, will we drown their ships with personnel on departure? :)))

    Read the words of the Wall Street Journal as: "Give us more more money".

    There was a relatively recent article, quite literate, that the NATO means of detection do not really allow even Russian submarines to sail off the coast. And here, serenades under the window are singing with laudatory odes. And who should I believe?)

      The article that the NATO detection tools see "everyone and everything, and everywhere" is for taxpayers. And "serenades with laudatory odes" are for the State Department, the Pentagon and other loot cutters

    In youth, if our steamer slowed down when leaving Murmansk and trudged barely to the fishing line, to the Nordkapp-Medvezhka-Spitsbergen line. It’s clear what we were doing. Orion will appear at least once.

    Our submariners are such fanciers. In the mid-90s they went on the "loaf", I don’t know the project. Between Canada and Greenland. They caught the AUG in the Atlantic and posted a photo taken through the periscope. Amers had such a tantrum. The submarine commander and the admiral accompanied, like the heroes of Russia for this campaign received.

        Maybe, but through Labrador it’s for sure. And it seems that after the scandalous photo of the American admiral they flooded the fleet. But they wrote it to us, maybe embellished it.

    I hope I won’t hurt the submariners' joke. The Russian submarine in the middle of the Atlantic is underwater. Commander’s compartment. Navigator: We can’t decide where we are, we’ve lost our coordinates! SO the last time I do it because of you. Commander: there is acoustics on the surface, there is acoustics and there is a single vessel right on the course. The torpedo compartment has two torpedoes on the noise or the radist and you write down the coordinates when this drowned person will SOS give. That's it ! But seriously, how the submariners determine their coordinates without surfacing.

    yes, there was a comment that almost the entire fleet (and submarines) in the seas and oceans was "grazed" by the Yankees: there are 2-3 times more of them ... it's like the former first tank line in the former German Democratic Republic in a serious conflict: they had a life before 15 minutes ... until cool to tighten the electronics, incl. and underwater - there’s nothing to catch at all ... someone is very smart, it slows down ... it was possible to hope only for railway moving complexes, but they were also beautifully removed ... so think ...

      Apparently, because for some time, they ceased to be it. Congratulations, with the re-entry into a series of threats to NATO! Strategic Rocket Forces. hi Without irony ... From the heart .... IMHO: in the native form of the sun, problems have accumulated ... I'm afraid we can’t take them out alone ... Harness yourself guys! Good luck to all of us!

    The Murukan article is interesting for its hidden meanings.
    "Sofa Experts" VO immediately realized that "American
    militarist "requires even more American money to protect
    from the increased power of the Russian submarine fleet.
    Note patriots shouted out loud: "Keep it up!", "Glory
    To the Russian fleet in centuries! ", And began to tell the patriotic
    jokes.
    But it’s interesting not only how the warriors intimidate their own, but
    and how Russians are praised:
    "silent and fast submarines that can go unnoticed
    at great depths and suddenly appear in the most unexpected places,
    ... Russian submarines are able to outplay Poseidons. "
    In general, the “Murukans” lost everything, and the Russians did well.
    What is it for? How should we understand this message?

      How to understand this message?
      Thanks to the amendments to the constitution, the Americans were afraid of our nuclear submarines.
      Neither Armat, nor Poseidon, nor the Boomerangs, nor the Su-57, nor Peresvet, nor the eternal GDP, nor are they afraid of anything, but only the submarines are afraid

      This can still mean for our budget that the submariners, as in the 90s, decided again to "pull the blanket over themselves of their beloved ones", therefore we again hear a familiar song that literally all the tasks of our fleet can be performed by only one submarine ...
