American admiral: we lack submarines

40
The US Pacific Command (PAKOM) does not have enough submarines to carry out certain operations; Look statement by the head of PACOM Harri Harris at the congressional hearing.




“I have concerns about ammunition and the number of submarines. I do not have submarines, which I think I need, ”said the admiral.

He explained that the provision of submarines "depends on the tasks assigned by the leadership and the total number of submarines in the possession of the US Navy."

At the same time, Harris noted that he is still coping with “the fulfillment of the current tasks that the command sets for him.

According to him, a threat to the American the fleet Russia represents Russia in the Pacific region, which is "modernizing its third-generation multipurpose Antey submarines (NATO's Oscar-2)".

Also admiral's concern is the construction in Russia of “nuclear submarines of the new, fourth, generation of the Yasen type”.

“The new submarine, Yuri Dolgoruky, which last year became part of the Pacific Fleet, has greatly strengthened their (Russia) strategic deterrence position,” Harris added.

          I don’t know what he is missing.
          Seventy-two submarines for various purposes.
          With so many, Russia would rule the world. It’s a joke, of course, but there is a joke in this joke.
          As they say....

          He begs the loot, but does it not convincingly.

            Vladislav, in the United States, for a long time, they have not bothered with clever words for the desire to communicate with the state denyuzhki. It will do and so "we do not have enough submarines" bully

    He has about the same number of stripes on his sleeve as Captain Vrungel’s! And the order blocks, like the legendary naval commander. I wonder how many battles he won? Or are battles in Congress for money equated in the US with naval battles?

    “The admiral is also concerned about the construction in Russia of“ new, fourth generation, Yasen-type nuclear submarines ”.

    "The new submarine Yuri Dolgoruky, which became part of the Pacific Fleet last year, has significantly strengthened their (Russia's) position of strategic containment," added Harris.

    And I’m just so glad for your concern, Admiral! You can’t imagine. laughing

      Actually, Yuri Dolgoruky is a Borey-class submarine. And then, he serves in the Northern Fleet - on the Pacific Fleet only "Alexander Nevsky" from "Boreyev" so far. The admiral has awareness at the level of couch special forces

    "Wait, are not you

    I sent two couples
    Excellent galoshes?
    - Ah, those that you sent

    And we wait, we will not wait,
