Forbes: the United States with one submarine disrupts the plan of underwater superiority of Moscow


In the middle of last year, the Russian Navy brought all the submarines of the Northern Fleet to patrol the North Atlantic region. In 2020, the Americans sent one of their most powerful submarines, the Seawolf, to the same part of the oceans, thereby disrupting the superiority of Russia's submarine forces, writes Forbes magazine.


Moscow has spent decades gaining control of its submarines in the northern part of the Atlantic - eight Russian submarines, six of which are nuclear, dispersed across the Barents and Norwegian Seas to develop the function of protecting waters and launching intercontinental missiles with nuclear missile carriers. The American "Sea Wolf", which has entered the same waters, has the task of breaking through the Russian naval defense in this region.

The withdrawal of Russian submarines into the North Atlantic Ocean a year ago was associated with the conduct of Operation Thunder, a two-month exercise, which also involved ground-based and air-based missiles. This year, Seawolf was Washington and NATO's response to the increased activity of the Russian submarine fleet.

Introduced in 1997, Seawolf is faster and quieter than any other attack submarine in the world, and is also superior in terms of armament.

- note the experts of the American publication, speaking of the disruption of the plans of Moscow's submarine superiority by one US submarine.

In August 2020, this secret American submarine sailed under the ice of the Arctic Ocean and passed through the bastion of Russian submarines deployed in the Norwegian Sea. According to US Submarine Force Commander Vice Admiral Daryl Coadle, such a covert appearance of the "Sea Wolf" illustrates the possibilities of the global coverage of the United States submarine fleet and its presence around the world to perform unique combat missions.

The Seawolf-class submarines were the American response to the Soviet Project 971 Schuka-B. The submarine has unique noise characteristics and is armed with 50 torpedoes (or 50 Tomahawk missiles). In total, the US fleet has three submarines of this type.

    Keene's man looked around.

    And what should have been drowned Seawulf immediately upon detection? It seems that there is no military action yet ... So the "breakthrough" is not counted.

      So the problem is that he was not noticed. And if necessary, the United States will be able to deploy more modern submarines in the desired direction.

          Are you talking to me? But in essence, there is something to say? (They also forgot to show the language in order to completely correspond to the level of kindergarten)

    One boat broke through the defenses of the entire North Atlantic?
    I am not a strategist, and I understand that even three will not be enough.

    The Yankees somehow quickly forgot that the "flags" were already put on the "Wolf"!
    In the late 1990s - early 2000s, the Russian Navy took out the hydrographic vessel GS-31 of the Northern Fleet from the experimental GPBA to the sea. Unlike "NATO" systems, this station did not have an external illumination, which significantly increased the detection range - just a passive antenna. But she also gave a phenomenal effect - the ship, being in the middle of the Barents Sea, found British and Norwegian submarines for many hundreds of kilometers. It was then that the Seawulf-class Connecticut submarine was on a reconnaissance campaign against the Russian Federation. And if it is usually very difficult to detect it, then here the little hydrographer calmly tracked it as long as it was necessary, having met it at the edge of Russian territorial waters. The "hydroacoustic portrait" of the boat was recorded, which is a major achievement for our fleet.
    And then, who said that Kazan turned out worse than Sivulf !?

    Funny skunks, their invulnerable submarine is the same as their type of invisible F-35, which will shoot down even the S-300, not to mention the 400 and 500

    One submarine put eight on its ears, this once again confirms the lag of the Russian Federation in technology, what to say if even military microelectronics were bought from NATO, and after the sanctions all the projects stopped and the boats did not give up but about armata and autonomous control systems we are generally silent

      sshakals, as always, damply dream of the unrealizable ... For example, in Afghanistan, the Taliban have been chasing amers for the second decade ... and how did "technical superiority" help you?
