The Norwegian press called deep-sea vehicles and submarines "the most dangerous weapon of Moscow"

25

In 2019, a fire broke out in the Barents Sea on the Losharik deep-water mini-submarine. In the West, they believe that "Losharik" and the rest of the "spy" fleet are the most dangerous weapon Putin.


The Norwegian edition Klikk writes about it.

The publication tells briefly about stories the appearance of the submarine, as well as its predecessors and "colleagues".

The first were Russian reconnaissance ships disguised as fishing vessels, now they have been decommissioned. They were replaced by oceanographic research vessels, which also carried deep-sea bathyscaphes, robots and other underwater vehicles.

Over time, according to the press in Norway, Russia acquired a whole fleet surface and submarine ships capable of conducting reconnaissance activities practically throughout the entire World Ocean. It is administered by the General Directorate of Deep Sea Research (GUGI). The Directorate is directly subordinate to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and the Supreme Commander-in-Chief - Russian President Vladimir Putin.

For some reason, their oceanographic ships in Norway are not classified as reconnaissance ships ...

Of all this flotilla, the project 09851 AS-31 Losharik submarine was considered the most dangerous in the West. The titanium protection of the hull allowed it to descend to a depth of six thousand meters. This means that the submarine could reach the bottom, where transoceanic fiber optic cables were laid. Approximately 97 percent of all world communications are carried out through them. Therefore, the failure of this network can paralyze all economic, financial and military activities of a potential adversary.

For this reason, deep-sea vehicles and submarines, which Russia possesses, are considered in the West "the most dangerous weapon of Moscow."

Recall that some time ago the Norwegian press announced that it was Russian activity off the coast of Norway that had led to the severing of a communication cable. Then Norway lost a section of this cable about 4 km long. She still cannot find it. Then, at the Marine Research Institute, they said that Russia may not be involved in this at all, and the separation of the cable from the platforms was due to the fault of Norwegian fishermen. A few weeks ago, a material appeared in the Danish press, which said that this cable allowed Oslo to track, among other things, Russian submarines.

    To blame Russia for the loss of the cable, you don't need to have seven spans in your forehead. And if you look at the map, it is clear that this trawler could only do it under the Norwegian flag. 2000s I learned that there is such a detachment of nuclear submarines. I saw all the projects of our nuclear submarines, these never happened. And the Americans from the satellite could not understand what they were for.

        I think that true Vikings could be ashamed of their descendants, who already in the shadows see the threat and are afraid of every rustle. Not warriors, their way to Valhalla is closed. Forever. hi

        Most likely, the decision to create this submarine detachment is based on the experience of operating the scientific submarine Severyanka for 10 years, someone at the top understood what this gives opportunities if you use an atomic reactor for movement.

          Severyanka helped fish to catch ... in troubled water wassat She was numbered for
          All-Union Scientific Research Institute of Marine Fisheries and Oceanography. Well, where there is a fish, there are many interesting things. tongue

      After the commissioning of the new Maryata, the old one was named Eger instead of being written off and converted into a research vessel designed to monitor the underwater, surface and air conditions in the Norwegian Sea. Details of the vessel's modernization are unknown. If construction and equipment intelligence equipment of the fourth Maryata was sponsored by US intelligence, then the modernization of Eger was carried out exclusively by the Norwegian departments.

      This one is already old, they have a new one for about 10 years. The last is a very serious car. I saw the Entu many times in the stern. What you have in the photo is now NIS Eger with the same functions.

    Sverdrup-2 performs oceanographic research work for scientific institutes and the Norwegian Ministry of Defense. It is also involved in intelligence activities in the Barents Sea. Among the equipment that can be used to monitor the activities of Russian submarines, there is an extended towed sonar antenna SURTASS, which is in service with NATO sonar reconnaissance ships. With the help of this antenna, the vessel is able to detect a submarine at a distance of 350 km. Using the LFA low frequency sonar can significantly increase this distance.

    And what does the weapon have to do with it? No fleet is needed to wipe Norway off the face of the earth. A few dozen volumetric explosion ammunition (tsar-bomb) is enough). It will be fast, reliable, environmentally friendly and no rock-caves will help.
    In their desire to receive funding from NATO, the Norwegians are dropping by ...

    In the event of a total war, Losharik will definitely not be needed to destroy Norway as a country in the NATO bloc. And in order to sleep peacefully the Norwegian "analysts" and are not afraid of "Losharikov" would better analyze how Norway would get out of NATO.

    Norway, like Sweden, contribute their five kopecks to the so-called. "containment of Russia" by throwing twigs into the fire of the Russophobic hysteria unleashed by the West, led by the United States. I wonder when the political schizophrenia of individuals will develop into mass hysteria, what will this lead to in European countries?

    A good half of the world's fishing vessels have the technical capabilities to break underwater cables, if only a sufficiently strong and long cable would fit on the winch. For anglers, the more problem is, no matter how accidentally the cable just breaks.
    And all sorts of deep-sea vehicles, special submarines, oceanographic and reconnaissance vessels will definitely not tear the cables. At most, they will connect a wiretap or lay a remotely controlled mine nearby for the future, but most likely they will simply clarify the laying route along with other, much more important tasks (measuring salinity and water temperature at different depths, mapping the bottom topography, etc.), since tearing important cables in peacetime are more of a problem for themselves, and in wartime they run the risk of losing a valuable, but not at all combat unit. In the event of a war, it is more likely that I will work out NK and submarines with deep ammunition along the cable laying routes, or even simply stretch a trawl with a cutting hook along the bottom.

    If it starts, God forbid! - all methods will be good. Therefore, the disabling of these communications will not be superfluous.

    so far, the most dangerous weapon of the Russian Federation is Russian soldiers (so let it always be so)
