Commander-in-Chief of the British Armed Forces: The activity of Russian submarines can threaten underwater cables

Russian submarine activity could threaten submarine cables. They are capable of damaging Internet cables that are laid along the bottom of the oceans.


This statement was made by the Commander-in-Chief of the British Armed Forces, Admiral Tony Radakin, to the Times newspaper.

The admiral is worried about the growth in the activity of submarines of the Russian Navy, which has been observed over the past two decades. Sir Radakin believes that if the command of the Russian fleet will give the order to damage communications at the bottom of the oceans, the world data transmission system will be under threat and may cease to function. In his opinion, this is precisely the main task of the Russian submarine fleet. Therefore, the Royal Navy is closely monitoring the movements of the submarines of the Russian Navy.

Russia has increased capacity to compromise these submarine cables

- says the Commander-in-Chief of the British Armed Forces.

Radakin believes that Russia's likely attempt to cut the submarine cables could potentially be regarded as an act of war.

The day before yesterday it was reported that in 2020 a Russian submarine stumbled upon a British Navy frigate. The frigate was damaged and was sent for repairs, but what happened to the submarine is unknown. The Russian Defense Ministry does not comment on the incident.

    All the crew of our submarines are urgently distributed smartphones with support for 5G networks, and they will freely dive to these cables and download secret files at maximum speed at the expense of the British budget wassat

        I admire the cinema - once there was a Hollywood film, how a submarine "crashed" into a transatlantic cable and began to download financial flows. The crew was recruited exclusively from "Russians".
        I advise the admiral to urgently contact the Swedes - they are "great" specialists in detecting an "underwater" tractor of Russian origin, which left traces near their main VM base - a topic for a science fiction novel under the motto of a mattress mattress "Russians are coming", plus a jump from the floor!

      Therefore, it is always possible to accuse our submarines unfoundedly. The cable is at the bottom, you can't check who and when damaged it, you can throw ge in the direction of Russia with impunity. They are already pretty adept at this.

        Why wait for "X" hour? The oceans are large, the length of the cables is many thousands, no one will control everything. What prevents these cables from being mined and connecting control over devices to the already well-known Perimeter System?

    The admiral thinks at times of World War II, well, okay. He remembers how the Germans first pogrom them. The amber has already gone where it is necessary and where it is necessary. It is not for nothing that he traveled around the world, even defiled the Panama Canal. The Russians became insolent. wassat

      "Kursk", blessed to his memory, passed through Gibraltar not hiding, as is always done, behind a trawler, but on its own. And it could have been easy to destroy the 6th Fleet, which was fucking Yugoslavia at that time. And along with those who just arrived to them for rotation. Hero of Russia is not given to the commander just like that ...

    But can the provocation of the Naglo-Saxons in our land in the Crimea be considered an act of war?
    As for the submarine cables, let them show their exact location in international waters, otherwise they might "accidentally" stumble across

      Far from it! The mere thought of this drives the "partners" into an "indescribable" rage! laughing
      And that's why:
      1. Loss of communication is loss of control. (C)
      Spacecraft and atmospheric communication channels are more susceptible to jamming than cable communication lines. This is well known to all. And on the optical fiber, you can drive "cubic kilometers" of information at a cosmic speed ... in almost real time.
      2. These are not just communication lines, but channels for transmitting information to NORAD from the early warning systems located in Norway, Iceland and on the Islands. And this is the main point! For the Yankees to lose this is tantamount to 50% reduction in the reaction time and decision-making on RNU for targets on their territory.
      3. Cable lines (fiber-optic, ESNO) also connect underwater lighting systems, linking hydrophones and non-acoustic sensors at anti-submarine lines into a single network. And this is also extremely important for the NATO PLC.
      PS To point 2:
      - In Norway, in Vardø, a new GBR-P missile defense radar, similar to the one installed in the USA on the Kwajelin attole, has been put into operation (in addition to the AN / FPS-2001 Have Stare radar system "Globus" that has existed since 129).
      - In Iceland, AvB Keflavik, Canada (within the framework of NORAD) for the first time deployed outside North America a mobile long-range air defense / missile defense system based on the RCAF AN / TPS-70 radar. In May 2020, they tested it, conducted an exercise - the so-called. Operation "Illumination".
      - Greenland, the village of Thule, an American radar early warning system of the Reytheon AN / FPS-132 EWP company was deployed.
      It is noteworthy that the Norwegian radar of the Globus system is connected by an underwater communication line with the Amer radar center in Florida. Both radars are subordinate to the 1st Space Control Squadron in Colorado and are part of the 21st Space Wing of the Aerospace Forces, which is responsible for warning of US nuclear and space threats.
      This is why the Tommies are so worried about the cables at the bottom of the Atlantic.
      AHA.
