"The Russian Navy is getting closer to our coast": the US is reviving the Atlantic Fleet

43

The US Navy intends to fully focus the attention of its forces located in the North Atlantic on the fight against the Russian fleet... In this regard, they are reviving one of the oldest ship formations.


The Ministry of Defense intends to reorient the forces involved in the fight against terrorism to counter the "Russian threat". They will be merged into a revived Atlantic Fleet.

We are adjusting to today's threat [...] Reorienting our naval forces in this important region to their original mission: control of naval approaches to the United States and our allies
- stated in the Navy.

According to the military department, the Russian Navy is confidently developing, increasing its combat power, and is already posing an increased danger.

The Atlantic fleet will oppose the strengthening Russian fleet (Russian Navy), which is deploying closer and closer to our eastern coast
- believe in the Pentagon, pointing out that the American fleet is forced to recognize the growing presence of Russia in the waters of the world's oceans.

The Atlantic Fleet, commanded in Norfolk, existed for a century, from 1906 to 2006. After the terrorist attacks of 2001, the first task of the formation was to support the fight against terrorists, and later this ship formation lost its independence altogether, obeying the command of the Navy.

    Well, who will they catch in the Atlantic?
    Russian nuclear submarines? Or Chinese?
    And their Mediterranean squadron to which fleet belongs?

          Stoltenberg said yesterday that aggressive Russia approached the NATO borders in the Pskov region ... well, all around we are approaching them ... soon Russia will approach the NATO borders near the walls of Moscow ... some kind of surrealism.
          Distorted reality. belay

          The simplest thing is to open Wikipedia and ask what it is about.
          Ask yourself, what is this "Atlantic Fleet"?

          And at first you have verbal diarrhea and a bunch of non-essential questions.

      They think that the Russian fleet is already at Nantucket and Norfolk, or "the life of blacks is more important" has driven them crazy. And then there was the "touched Norwegian" made a statement, "Russia continues to violate the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia and Ukraine. It continues to build up its military power in Crimea. And it is increasingly deploying its forces in the Black Sea. "
      The Ministry of Defense intends to reorient the forces involved in the fight against terrorism to counter the "Russian threat". It looks like terrorists are their friends and brothers, but the Russian threat is more important for them, although the Russians do not poke anyone in the ass with a bayonet.
      It all reminds me of the spring of 1941.

      They have the 6th fleet deployed in the Mediterranean. The composition of the 6th Fleet is variable, depending on the situation in the theater of operations. But an aircraft carrier and a couple of submarines are usually always present.

    Loser jokers! The cat cried our fleet, the pale shadow of the USSR fleet! To search for it really, the task is still the same, because our "squadrons" have one or two combat pennants, and a bunch of auxiliary, first of all, tugs. From a distance, it looks like ordinary rubolov, going with breakdowns under the control of tugs. ...

      If this is so, then why are the Americans going to invest many billions of dollars into the creation of the Atlantic Fleet ... after all, we are already talking about huge sums.
      Spending so much money to catch one of our submarines? what Illogical.

        Why is it not logical? It depends on what kind of PLA. If it will be 09851 with Poseidon or 885M with KRBD in the version with SBP, then it is quite logical. Such a boat alone can do a lot of trouble for striped ears. That's why they started up. They will not allow NK and aviation across the Atlantic. But about our newest submarines - a problem of an all-American scale has emerged. That is why the amas are kipish right: they feel the "radishes" from where they can get a splash. So they bristle like a hedgehog.

        And where did you hear about the many billions of dollars?

        The creation of the Atlantic Fleet is an administrative reshuffle and renaming of Task Force 20 with the resupply of headquarters.

        aircraft carriers are pearl harbor targets no more, and if a couple of hyper missiles hit the deck and below the waterline, it will all turn into a sinking common coffin! ... Now it is easier for us personally to have a mobile-fast ISS, and we are not going to attack anyone!

      If you take the entire NATO fleet together with the states, then it is dozens of times superior to the Russian one.
      This is either the usual Anglo-Saxon intimidation with "gunboat diplomacy", or the deployment of forces to capture Russia.

        Not for capture, but for pressure and squeezing out the Arctic plume, but yes, this is exactly what it is and no one really hides it.

        they roll bucks on a copier and therefore have nowhere to put them, and by building gigantic aircraft carriers, they will receive "approvals" in their State Department! ... Although there (in the state dep) there are the same functionaries "on a flash drive" copied from a long-standing, scruffy "disc" of the Cold War! .. right now they are "worried" about Poseidon, the former Sakharov project of Kuzka's mother under Khrushchev. But there are other more economical ones ... and let the Kuzya float like a historical memory, frightening with a chimney

    Strange formulation of the question. The question immediately arises - are our ships violating the sea borders of the United States or the American Russian border (Peter the Great Gulf, Baltic Sea ...). So who is getting closer and closer to whom? On the other hand, since you (Russia) have been directly declared enemy number 1 in their doctrines, then there is nothing else to expect.

    And, well, yes ... after all, it was the Russians who commissioned three nuclear aircraft carriers over the past three years, and not the NATO countries ... foreign policy, supported by paranoia and exaggerated by the interests of a certain clique, will only lead to the personal enrichment of a particular group, but not to universally significant the result.

    They believe that any ship from Russia is a threat to them, as they wrote back in 2014:
    The Russian reconnaissance vessel has been operating off the US east coast and near the Gulf of Mexico for the past month, a Pentagon spokesman said, according to washingtontimes.com. in the material "Russian intelligence ship operating off US East Coast: Pentagon".
    "We understand that the Russian ships Viktor Leonov and Nikolai Chiker are currently in waters that are not US territorial seas, but close to Cuba," said Lt. Col. Tom Crosson, a Pentagon spokesman.
    "We respect the freedom of all peoples, which is reflected in international law, in the operation of warships outside the territorial seas of other peoples."
    The Pentagon believes that Viktor Leonov is a reconnaissance ship equipped with high-tech equipment for conducting electronic reconnaissance. "Nikolay Chiker" is an ocean-going naval tug.
    Pentagon officials suspect the ships were part of an espionage operation against the nuclear missile submarine base in Kings Bay, Georgia, and other US military installations.
    Both ships were recovered off the coast of Florida near the US Naval Base Mayport, Florida, which is south of the King Bay Naval Submarine Base.
