"One of the most secret projects in Moscow": the British edition told about the Russian "submarine for underwater sabotage"

58

Russia will soon get into service with a new submarine for "underwater sabotage" capable of destroying Western cable networks. The author writes about this in an article for the British edition of The Mirror.


Chris Hughes argues that the new Russian submarine, the AS-15 Kashalot, will be launched from the carrier submarine Belgorod, capable of diving two miles (3,2 km), where it will damage cable networks in order to disrupt the British economy.

After separation from Belgorod, Kashalot can also place explosive devices on the bottom to destroy cables, or install devices capable of cutting them.

- the author writes.

In addition, energy pipelines or, in case of war, two new British aircraft carriers could become targets of the Russian submarine's attack.

According to the text of the article, "Moscow's naval intelligence spies" have been trying for several months to disrupt the economies of Western countries by damaging cable networks, and the Kashalot project is one of Moscow's most secret naval projects undergoing reconstruction for special deep-sea sabotage operations.

To counter the threats from Vladimir Putin, Hughes writes, the Royal Navy intends to build a multipurpose ocean-going reconnaissance ship, but it will only be ready by 2024.

    This submarine is quite capable of all these things.
    If necessary, he will cut it.
    That's what they built for.
    And it can also install the equipment for reading information.
    (Although personally I have no idea how you can seamlessly connect to an UNDERWATER fiber optic cable.)
    You might think that the mattresses themselves are not ready to do the same things.

                The first time I saw a gateway for divers was when I was a child in the film "The Secret of Two Oceans" (a 1955 film of the USSR).
                And since then I am convinced that such a gateway is necessary for a combat submarine.
                The saboteurs must not only be released, but also be able to return back.

                    I have a book "History of underwater espionage against the USSR" by Sontag S. and Drew K. 2001. It describes how the Americans connected to a submarine cable in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, a cable from Kamchatka to the mainland. Divers operated from the submarine, periodically taking cassettes with recordings and so they had access to classified data for several years. After this shame, our people did not even turn their ears away, since the Americans again connected to the underwater cable, already in the Barents Sea.

                  unfortunately I'm in the process of moving, so I'm not sure if I can find the archives I need, but if I succeed, I'll post here a couple of "portraits" of the civilian version of "Klavisin". As for the second question, when I was at the IPMT FEB RAS in Vladivostok, they had more than a dozen different AUVs in their testing laboratory, they were able to offer something to the Emergencies Ministry, something went for the "cardon", but most of them remained at the stage of the engineering version, since no one in the relevant departments was interested in their development (foreign devices are more expensive, which means that it will be possible to warm up on their purchase and look prettier, just like a Mercedes vesch) maybe this is part of the answer to your question?
