The ships of the Russian Navy and the Chinese Navy worked out actions to search for and destroy a potential enemy submarine

Warships of the Russian Navy and the Navy of the People's Liberation Army of China (PLA) continue to perform the tasks of the third joint maritime patrol of the Pacific Ocean, the country's Ministry of Defense reports.

Thus, according to the Russian Defense Ministry, the crews of the ships have already passed the Sea of ​​Japan, the La Perouse Strait, the Sea of ​​Okhotsk and the Kamchatka Strait. They also worked out joint actions in tactical maneuvering, conducted communications training. They carried out landings and takeoffs of helicopters from the decks of each other's ships.

It is worth noting that the distance that the detachments covered from the very beginning of the patrol exceeded 2,3 thousand nautical miles.

As for the southwestern part of the Bering Sea, a detachment of Russian and Chinese ships conducted an anti-submarine exercise, during which the Russian Navy and the PLA Navy worked out actions to search for, escort and destroy potential enemy submarines.

Upon detection of an “enemy” submarine (according to the scenario of the exercises, it entered the region closed to navigation), shipborne sonar search tools were used along with Ka-27PL carrier-based anti-submarine helicopters.

After the coordinates and parameters of the movement of the target were determined, recommendations were developed using weapons. In order to hit a conditional submarine, the sailors fired a volley of reactive depth charges.

Of the anti-submarine ships, the international detachment of our country includes the Admiral Tributs and the Admiral Panteleev, of the corvettes, the Thundering and the Hero of the Russian Federation Aldar Tsydenzhapov, along with the Pechenga medium sea tanker. On the part of the PRC Navy, the destroyers Guiyang and Qiqihar take part in the patrol, the Tongling and Rizhao patrol ships, as well as the Taihu complex supply ship.

Recall that the third Russian-Chinese maritime patrol in the Pacific began on July 28. The sailors of the two countries conducted the first such joint maritime patrol in 2021, while the second one took place last fall.

    Maybe it's time to include in the Navy training program the search for naval drone control ships and their destruction?

      these ships will launch drones for 1-2 thousand km. if you look for them, then from a satellite, and then you still need to hit it with a rocket. but most likely these carriers will themselves be submarines and will launch drones from the territory of "neutral" states.

      Of course worth it! Yesterday, another of our ships was set on fire - in Novorossiysk, the BDK Olenegorsky miner received 300-400 kg of TNT on board, now he is being towed to the dock with a roll to the port side. Ahead of a long and expensive repair. By the way, it was repaired 2 years ago, and here it is again. Well, how many killed and wounded sailors is a mystery. State!

    Destroying a "potential" enemy is, of course, good. But I wanted the "real" enemy to be destroyed and that the coming out-jahid-kayaks would not spoil our BDK.
