US Navy has practiced the fight against Russian submarines in the North Atlantic

The US Navy in the North Atlantic, as part of the Black Widow 2020 exercise, worked out operations to combat Russian submarines. This was reported by the information service of the United States Naval Institute.


Commander of the Atlantic Submarine Force fleet Vice Admiral Daryl Caudle, speaking to reporters, said that as part of the Black Widow 2020 exercises, "potential combat scenarios" were worked out to combat Russian nuclear submarines. At the same time, he noted that the American fleet "is improving the skills of" anti-submarine warfare "against the background of Russia's active expansion of its presence in the waters off the coast of the United States."

Russia has been weak for over a decade and has allowed many people to think that the homeland is beyond the reach of Russian forces. Our homeland is no longer a refuge. We must be prepared to conduct intense combat in coastal waters

- said the vice admiral, adding that despite "limited funds", Russia is still building modern submarines.

At the same time, the US Navy refused to report whether the American fleet encountered Russian submarines during the exercise.

According to data provided by the US Navy's 2nd Operational Fleet, the exercises involved a Los Angeles-class nuclear attack submarine, a Virginia-class nuclear attack submarine, destroyers USS McFaul (DDG-74) and USS Arleigh Burke (DDG-51), as well as a universal landing ship USS Wasp (LHD-1). Patrol anti-submarine aircraft and anti-submarine helicopters were also involved in the exercises.

    Why report it?
    And who is reporting this?
    If Kursk had not sunk, who would have known that two American submarines were pushing alongside and our people knew about it?
    Traced, not traced - this secret is great!

    This is when their Ross visited Barentsukh with escort for a day, and then he fumbled to the Baltic so that I’m not sure if he was in our economic zone. It doesn’t fit in time, he’s not a plane. wassat

        Here on VO there was an article about the beginning of the exercises and an article when Ross ended up in the Baltic. To England from Murmansk in 14 nodal travel 5 days, if the sea is "water in a swamp". I gave you some introductory notes, you can have some fun. hi drinks

        On September 8, the beginning of the exercise on September 14, Ross passed Kattegat through Popenhagen to the Baltic. 30 knots from the north, he will not give, not a war, fuel consumption and wear and tear of the gas protection system at full speed. Plus, the coast of Norway is full of fishermen who, if they do not give way with a trawl, because according to the rules of good maritime practice, they have a signal hanging I go with a trawl, I do not manage well. So just enough time to fish a submarine from Medvezhka, and then probably my own. Yes, the Defense Ministry did not comment on the progress of their exercises, in their zone they can do what If we went to the Barents Sea, ours would have to send something to a meeting anyway. We would already know about this. And so the silence from our Defense Ministry. They are more worried about their nuclear submarines. Here, of course, is a problem that needs to be solved, not whether they graze at our bases. Here in 75 the American submarine read, on the initiative of the commander went to the raid of Severomorsk! If this is true, then you can take off your hat in front of this "crazy". wassat drinks

          "If we went to the Barents Sea, ours would have to send something to a meeting" ...
          Read the news (graze with impunity, if not, partly uncontrollably).
          Evaluate the composition of the SS (forces and means). Ours and theirs. Compare. Now about the PLO. Aviation, naval components ... Yes, I'm not special. They sound only what I read here, I double-checked it using other available sources ...
          "They are more worried about the nuclear submarines ..."
          And they do not have atomic ones ...
          "and do they not graze at our bases ..."
          It was repeatedly discussed on the site. Summarizing the opinions, assessments of people close to the topic, the conclusion: the exit of the SSBN in the area of ​​the database (I can be mistaken in terms) without being accompanied by adversaries, is a rare success. Well, count the number ...
          What is wrong, I hope - the specialists will correct ...

            Also not special, but went to sea from Murmansk. I saw many times how our nuclear submarines left their bases, which is unknown there by a submarine. But if this Mariyata fumbles around the fence, then there is a chance to see our nuclear submarine on the surface. Submarine and SSBN exit, secret sealed with seven seals. Let the divers correct me. About this how and when a mere mortal should not know. hi

              It seems that you, like me, were brought up in those days when our Navy and the SA posed a real threat to any adversaries and their interests in the world. hi
              To my great regret, now this is possible, only in very few directions and with a successful combination of other circumstances. Do not write me down as alarmists. I see ... Yes, as the Supreme Commander-in-Chief declared, if anything, the whole World is in dust! (I hope - we can; the main thing is that the adversaries do not doubt!).
              The fact that you saw our nuclear submarines does not negate the likelihood (rather the opposite))) that they were seen, grazed, led by opponents ... If I see the Yars PGRK weekly, this does not mean that in the ground component of the strategic nuclear forces (strategic nuclear forces ) we are stronger than all. May the air, underwater "strategists" forgive me, IMHO: for several decades the main deterrent factor in the military sphere is the Strategic Missile Forces, not because he served there (rather in spite of lol It just happened, historically. Once again, I do not beg for the merits of representatives of other species and genera of the Armed Forces, workaholic of the defense industry and so on ...
              Especially against this background, some comments of individual "patriots" are straining, saying that they say, let them fly (about US strategic bombers near our borders), Latvia (with "Abrams"), what is Georgia (with air defense systems), Poland (with NATO bases), Ukraine (....). We must think. Think and do, -what to oppose. Ash-red, they will decide without us ... But, waving flags and languages ​​is not the case ... repeat

                Thank you for your communication. I have the same opinion that everything around should be under our control. It looks like the stakes are going up. The Ambassador to the United States Antonov said that France and England, not China, but France and England, at the negotiating table on START 3, was a priority. There was one more of his statements on strategic nuclear forces, meaning we will only negotiate with the linkage on missile defense and everything else. There will be no second hump. It looks like we finally waited for a historic moment. good drinks soldier

                  hi Mutually.
                  I consider that people who are normal from my point of view are present on the forums for the sake of:
                  1) communication;
                  2) awareness, understanding of issues not clear to them;
                  3) desire to share with like-minded people - put aside! - other people with their knowledge, experience, opinions ...
                  There are, of course, just trolls, and those who indulge their ego with pluses (here on VO, comments, as a rule, are right under the article), with obvious statements that do not carry a semantic load ...
                  For the sake of fairness, I will not say that I am indifferent to the assessments of those present. But, at times, it is bewildering the number of minuses hung on a person for a voiced, well-grounded truth, moreover, voiced competently, to the place, and on time ... simply because ... prevents others from talking nonsense, developing some of their crazy ideas, and so on.

                    I no longer pay attention to the assessments, there are a lot of trolls present here. I have been a reader since I was 12 years old. There really were "monsters" there before. you already know. I’m all interested in the sea. I’m lucky, there are a lot of them here. hi

    As part of the Black Widow 2020 exercise, "potential combat scenarios" were worked out to combat Russian nuclear submarines.

    How pleasant it is to conduct exercises when you know that there are no "terrible" submarines there. But I wonder if the admiral knows a joke about the gopher?

      Well, since about the "gopher", then apparently to you, Elena, Moiseev personally reports the plan of combat training of our submarines in the Northern Fleet ...

    Most likely not, although they categorically claim that they are there. It seems to me that if they found out, then there would be a cry for the whole world. Now the West has such a fashion, to fight in hysterics for any reason, just to address Russia. I'm surprised they didn't turn the oval version. It's times like this now, there is a boat (newbie laughing ), no boat (beginner laughing ), you still need to yell. As in that joke. Why think, you have to jump.

    do you think that they will not start a war, they are not crazy? they are not crazy, but they are creative, which means there is a plan and they will make it, which means that the war will be, as if others did not think that it is not possible! but in Russia they probably think there was no war, as in the songs Gaza Strip, with this approach, the Russian Federation does not have a stranger and does not live for someone else's shet, as does the United States and England! to know our destiny to fight off Europe for 100 years! it's just time to show the whole world, or they will retreat and we will live as we lived, or rather, they will lift the sanctions and more, or you yourself will think what! and so when they staged a maidan in Ukraine, they have already crossed the red line when the elite will be hanged like the current Kadafi, then it will come for them that it was necessary to act earlier, but for now we will not think about attacking so there is a nuclear weapon, and so they will find an approach to this) although all this my nonsense)))) all is well let them pour on and swim and work out wherever they want, we have nuclear weapons, there are no other ways to destroy the Russian Federation
