US admiral: US and Russian submarines launched "new battle for the Atlantic"

55
The Russian submarine fleet has intensified, and now constantly checks the readiness of American submarines in the “new battle for the Atlantic,” writes in its article for USNI News chapter 6 fleet USA James Foggo.




The vice admiral called this underwater confrontation "The Fourth Battle for the Atlantic."

In his opinion, "the surge in activity of Russian submarines is comparable to large-scale battles between the Allies and the Germans during the First and Second World Wars and between the USSR and the USA during the Cold War."

“Once again, an efficient, experienced, and technologically advanced Russian submarine fleet challenges us. Russian submarines ply the Atlantic Ocean, testing our defense capabilities, challenging our dominance of the sea and preparing a difficult underwater battlefield that will give them an advantage in any future conflict ”,
declares Foggo.

After the annexation of the Crimea in 2014 g, “Russian warships, aircrafts and submarines became much more active in the so-called military presence actions - especially in the case of submarines,” he notes.

Moreover, Moscow “openly declared an increase in the number of operations with the use of submarines, and such operations began to be carried out one and a half times more often,” writes the admiral.

In his opinion, "Russia delineates the arc of the power of the Russian submarine fleet from the Arctic to the Black Sea."

“Combined with large-scale and frequent underwater patrols across the North Atlantic and the Norwegian Sea, as well as the basing of advanced forces in Syria, Russia can become a threat to almost all NATO naval forces,” concludes Foggo.

          So there is something to be afraid of laughing
          Indeed, apart from: ... "Russian combat surface ships, aircraft and submarines have become much more active in the so-called actions to ensure a military presence - especially this concerns submarines" ... there are also marines laughing
          And if these already cling to the shore, consider it already does not belong to you laughing

      in in. just starting to read, I thought, damn it, but the BATTLE has nothing to do with it? or maybe they suffer losses, they just don’t tell us that?
      These "Lavrov's utterances" should be taught not only literate, but simply speech.
      I can write so about his "statement" that he declared war on us and we urgently need to deliver a nuclear strike on the states.

        Quote: Tom Clancy, The Hunt for Red October, 1984.
        “The Atlantic, Mr. President, is still our ocean.” On this map you see that we have bases in Iceland, on the Azores, everywhere on our Atlantic coast. We have allies on both sides of the ocean, and if desired, we are able to establish complete dominance in the air ...
        “Yes, sir,” said General Hilton. - Dr. Ryan is right: the Atlantic is our ocean ... If any shooting starts, the Soviet fleet is waiting for a quick and inevitable end.

        Something like the average merino merikos American, and the admiral from the standpoint of "give money", and the congressman from the standpoint of "must be given!" accustomed to treating the Atlantic Ocean as property. Simple appearance in their the neutral waters of even one single Russian submarine for them - this is, damn it, a battle! Oh, these Russians! their treachery has no boundaries! Today they launched a submarine, tomorrow they will launch a missile cruiser, and the day after tomorrow they dare not to let us into the Barents Sea and peacefully drown Kursk! Abral! Half a half! Chef, it's all gone! Plaster is removed, the client leaves!

      Here! Bull's-eye!
      The commander of the 6 fleet, undoubtedly, being a professional, directly outlines the threat:
      Russian submarines plow the Atlantic Ocean ... preparing a complex submarine battlefield that will give them an edge in any future conflict.


      He defined the boundaries of our vital national interests:

      “Russia draws an arc of the Russian submarine fleet’s power from the Arctic to the Black Sea.”
      The admiral did not forget to mention the forces performing this task:
      “Combined with large-scale and frequent submarine patrols throughout the North Atlantic and the Norwegian Sea, as well as the deployment of advanced forces in Syria, Russia could become a threat to almost all of NATO’s naval forces.”

      Here is the assessment of the military professional, our VS, with the designation of the forces, means and areas of concentration of the main efforts of the KSF to protect the national interests of the Russian Federation at sea.
      The best * intelligence * from the open source and can not be obtained!

    There is a good Russian proverb about this: Not all cats are Pancake week - there will be a post!
    We offered the Americans friendship, in our naivety we extended our hand to them. And they spat in our faces, sent a fat cat as an ambassador to make a "revolution" here (he is now rushing around the country, like an established one), and all Russian citizens, except those with dual citizenship, were declared "enemies of the human race." This cannot be forgiven! And the answer to the "Yugoslav scenario" will come in some Boston or Houston, I think, in ten minutes in case of an attack on Russia. And there is no need for "humanism" and an adequate response. No one will sprinkle foil on American wires. The American question will be settled immediately and forever.

    The American side emphasizes that US-flagged ships are present in the Black Sea "to maintain peace and stability."
    As the citizens of Russia emphasize. destroy an American ship at any time to maintain peace and tranquility in the Black Sea.
