Admiral Ferguson: the emergence of new Russian submarines complicates the work of the US and NATO fleets

59
New Russian submarines are becoming increasingly difficult to detect and track, transmit RIA News Statement by the Commander of the US Navy in Europe and Africa Mark Ferguson.




“The submarines we see are much less visible. We see that (the Russians) have more developed weapons systems, missile systems that can strike at ground targets from long distances. We also notice that their level of training rises as they unfold in areas increasingly distant from their territorial waters, ”said the admiral on CNN.

He noted that Moscow "sees a threat in the expansion of NATO to the east and seeks to prevent the United States and NATO from acting in the region of the so-called near abroad of Russia."

This situation worries the US and its allies, so they "launch a new program of exercises to develop anti-submarine operations and deploy new weapons, including the P-8 Poseidon anti-submarine patrol aircraft."

According to the admiral, now in service with NATO "are in service with 53 submarines, but due to the fact that some of them are to be written off, and in connection with the latest budget plans, their number will fall to 41 by 2020 year."

Another admiral, former commander-in-chief of the US and NATO forces in Europe, James Stavridis told the channel that the Americans "today cannot control the actions of Russian submarines by 100%."

“Our shock submarines are better, but not by much. Russian submarines are a real threat to US Navy aircraft carrier groups, ”added Stavridis.

        Ferguson is just an alarmist.

        After the halogeroys of the prezik Parasha thrice completely destroyed the Russian army, there is absolutely nothing to fear.
        The fleet is already a pale shadow of former greatness, and Russia is a colossus with feet of clay. There is no more left to refuel submarines with kerosene. Very soon, boats will begin to emerge in the most unexpected places in the oceans and ask for help from NATO. You just have to wait a bit.

            And when did they track it? When Teryokhin stole a secret anti-submarine antenna from them, or when our nuclear submarine surfaced in the center of NATO anti-submarine exercises in order to hand over a sick sailor, and then plunged and left at the end, the NATO troops did not intercept it. Or the Aport and Atrina, when the American divisions lost our nuclear submarines, which they contemptuously called "Roaring Cows". Or they found it when the bottom of an American aircraft carrier was ripped open at a length of 40 meters.

          And I wrote that submarines with calibers are not at all fantasies ... a thousand and a half kilometers of carts ... vzhih ... and even on modernized Varshavyan. winked
          It is only surprising, of course, the "timeliness" of such statements ... if the US military officials see this three years later ... after quite official tests. About which the state media spoke quite officially. There, in fact, Admiral Vitko reported to Putin on the armament of submarines,who are capable of shooting at least 1.5 for thousands of kilometers. yes

    All this "Russian threat" they have solely for their military-industrial complex to receive orders, no more. Yes, we have excellent submarines, BUT American admirals-analysts "forget" to tell the public that in addition to boats like Los Angeles and Sea Wolf, the US Navy has anti-submarine forces many times superior to ours (and surface ships , and naval aviation). It seems that American sailors are going to fight with our boats only by means of their submarines.
    Yes, and let's not forget about the fact that there is also the Navy of Great Britain and France, which, in the event of a real war, will also take "their places according to the combat schedule."

    The Americans and all the trash that they have in their service, such as the Poles and various other Swedes, are worried NOT about what is already swimming, shooting, flying and tracking, and the fact that all this already exists, and in large quantities, but what will come to replace all this tomorrow? This is what really worries them. "Perestroika" is over, it is impossible to get the secrets just like that, and the US ambassador and all his "embassy" - the CIA hornet's nest in Moscow, are persuaded by a few people to spy. Their brains moved to China long ago or stopped working altogether, they live on old or stolen achievements.
    Therefore, the Americans must expect real provocations around the world: terrorist attacks, explosions, new conflicts, color revolutions, organized technological disasters, etc., paid for by them, hindering the development of mankind. Is it not aiding terrorists, but even the direct organization of terrorism and paying for the work of bandits.

Well, in general, so as not to get under your feet and not dream at night in the nightmares of a retaliatory nuclear strike! And then this general is such a little rascal, who, considering a priori Russia as an adversary, can still throw out any vileness that his superior commanders will order him and will not even think about the consequences. I wish that these ghouls who made the decisions and dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the like roasted the devils in hell, and that the incendiary arsonists of wars and calamities of entire nations were dragged there by the ribs on hooks .. !!
    But alas, this is not yet the case and have to be countered by our submarine missile carriers, which are so out of place for the Pentagon generals and admirals. So keep our Navy and not only further !!!!

    It became uncomfortable for the Amer’s admirals: The combat capabilities of the Russian Navy are growing — in ships, in weapons, and in the training of military personnel, and the areas of operations of the fleet have expanded! Eventually:
    Americans "today cannot 100% control the actions of Russian submarines."
    An empty, calm life ended.
    This situation worries the US and its allies, so they "launch a new program of exercises to develop anti-submarine operations and deploy new weapons, including the P-8 Poseidon anti-submarine patrol aircraft."
    This is a lot of money from the pocket of taxpayers.
    And what about the strength of the submarine? What about the boats?
    NATO is now “armed with 53 submarines, but due to the fact that some of them are subject to decommissioning, and due to the latest budget plans, their number will drop to 41 by 2020.”
    Waste again! And these "bad" Russian "Kalina" are being completed, "Ash" are being built, "Condors", "Antei" and "Pike-B" are being modernized, plans are being made according to "Husky"!

    Judging by the comments, people are generally not adequate, Russians are very limited in everyday life. Are you sure that we control US submarines. The most dangerous opponent for submarines is another submarine. Russian submarines always threaten US submarines, as well as US submarines always threaten Russian submarines. The American admirals and submarine commanders understand this and therefore make such cautious statements and do not yell that we will drown the Russians. In this regard, they are much smarter than many Russians. Our leadership also understands this and the Russian submarine commanders behave very cautiously at sea, otherwise the sea will punish what it has done more than once. (K-8, K-219, K-278, K-141.)

    And this is what seeps into the press. And there is also that behind 7 seals. I recall the case when an English submarine watched the teachings of our fleet somewhere in the north. And when diving, she hit the ice floe with the cabin and got a hole. The question arises: what caused the enemy submarine to go so fucked up? Probably our ships discovered it and decided to work out maneuvers on it.
