"Boredom": how the West reacted to the emergence of three Russian nuclear submarines in the Arctic


During naval exercises in the Arctic for the first time in history of the Russian fleet, three submarines, breaking through the ice, surfaced at a distance of several meters from each other. However, many readers of the British newspaper Daily Mail were skeptical about the incident.


This week, Moscow conducted military exercises near Alexandra Land, an island belonging to the Franz Josef Land archipelago and territorially part of the Primorsky District of the Arkhangelsk Region. Three Russian nuclear-powered missile carriers came to the surface of the ocean from under the ice, which was reported to Vladimir Putin by the commander-in-chief of the Russian naval forces Nikolai Evmenov.


According to the President of the Russian Federation, the conducted exercises have become unprecedented in their kind, and the Russian army has once again proved the power and strength of weapons in such harsh natural conditions.

Here's how the readers of the British edition reacted to the Arctic maneuvers of the Russian Navy:

Surely, even before the submarines surfaced, bottles of vodka appeared on the surface.

- sneers Bambambam.

Boring stuff! As usual, Moscow only rattles its weapons

- considers Truthfulli painfull.

Russia still possesses a large number of nuclear warheads. If Moscow enters into an alliance with Beijing, Pyongyang and Tehran, the world will face big trouble

- Chris an the mum warns.

Any show of strength only shows weakness. The US has never had to resort to such stupid propaganda tricks

- this is the opinion of svengill12.

This is nothing more than propaganda. Meanwhile, the United States' hypersonic missiles in Europe are only five minutes from Moscow.

- "consoles" other Ade users, fantasizing about some missiles on the European continent.

Putin is absolutely not afraid of Biden, just as he was not afraid and did not respect Obama. He is confident that there will be no retaliatory steps from the United States.

- sure havanaJoe.

Russia wants to show in this way that the entire Arctic is part of it - they already have Crimea, Eastern Ukraine and everything else they can get to ... The West is powerless and weak, and it can be used to their advantage

- "reveals" the "plans of the Kremlin" a certain Fatoldgit.

Are they trying to intimidate polar bears, walruses and seals? Who shows strength by going to one of the most remote places on Earth? America also has many nuclear submarines, and they are scattered all over the world.

- dube notes skeptically.

      Do you guys want to neigh?
      Five years ago, I fly in the afternoon in one nose in the Bitsevsky forest park (pensioner, I have the opportunity). I sit, change my account, there is a family with a kid about 10 years old. He is interested, asks clumsily, I understand that it is French, I answer / explain in French. Daddy has square eyes, momma - he’s from KGB!
      And running with a stomp !!!

    Tolley business when yours come up - fun, crowbars are used, picks, shovels, chainsaws, some are trying to thaw out! Yes, we live boringly - you think we surfaced, played at the peepers and dived back!

    Any surfacing in ice is a boat crash test. And they do it as rarely as possible, and anyway, subsequent repairs are guaranteed ... This was the case before. So it remains now. Moreover, three at once. And the pluses of "simultaneous ascent" are not obvious.

    Perhaps there were some goals for such an operation (for example, to compare different navigation systems or something else ... I have no idea what ... But you never know what could have been the goal). In the meantime, it is not exactly clear what, why and why, to make a diagnosis is frivolous. And pointless. But it is definitely impossible to scare someone with this. Well surfaced. Mogo !!! So what? We calmed down and went to the sofas.

      And the pluses of "simultaneous ascent" are not obvious.

      To surface 3 boats at the same time and in one place, they at least need to constantly coordinate their actions - so as not to collide. Or do you think that they were looking at each other through the windows? Submarines, and even under the ice, are a fairly inconspicuous object! And in order to coordinate their maneuvers, they had to have several components at once: communication, orientation and the ability to detect each other in the difficult conditions of the Arctic ice. And so yes, nothing complicated, it's like sitting on three chairs standing next to each other in the middle of a huge hall, three volunteers who entered it at different times, from different doors, in conditions of darkness and silence! Really spit! laughing

      We calmed down and went to the sofas.

      Apparently your outlook on this sofa of yours is strong and limited.

        Who said it was easy? Who said "give it up"? Or is self-satisfaction the basis of your existence? He came up with something else himself - he "answered" himself. To a non-existent statement. request
        Have surfaced nearby? Masterly. It's good. So what's not to like about my couch, which is not surprised by such a resurrection?
        Here at the World Cup 3 (!!!) OUR skaters win the WHOLE podium at once !!! Delightful! Well done.
        And here I do not understand why? Only the deckhouses surfaced, the decks with hatches into the missile silos remained under the ice. Simultaneous ascent is not a practice of actions in a combat mode. In this case, the risk of being hit by one general blow from the enemy will be much higher. So no one will "fight" !!!
        Than teach me how to live, "Ukrainian" with a broad outlook, tell me better, what do you think, what you wanted to achieve? To show Kuzkin's mother? Just don't need me to do demagoguery here. Because, since these are not seeds and no longer even corn, this is some kind of noodles

          You

          Well surfaced. Mogo !!! So what? We calmed down and went to the sofas.

          And again they repeated their thesis:

          Have surfaced nearby? Masterly. It's good. So what's not to like about my couch, which is not surprised by such a resurrection?

          Here at the World Cup 3 (!!!) OUR skaters win the WHOLE podium at once !!! Delightful! Well done.

          Was the Russian flag raised? Did you sound the anthem? Are they definitely ours or is this what they tell you about it?

          And here I do not understand why? Only the deckhouses surfaced, the decks, with hatches into the missile silos, remained under the ice.

          Have you been told about ascent rocket launches? Or is it yours:

          He came up with something else himself - he "answered" himself. To a non-existent statement.

          The possibilities that I mentioned above were demonstrated here, but your sofa still cannot understand this. To launch missiles, they use a different sequence of actions before surfacing, now there was no such task, so the missile silos remained under the ice.

          Tell me better, what do you think, what did you want to achieve?

          Orientation in difficult conditions of the Arctic ice, testing and testing of systems for launching torpedoes, testing group interaction of submarines, demonstration of the flag. Your attack is incomprehensible:

          Than teach me how to live, "Ukrainian" with a broad outlook,

          Trolling? Too shallow and only made me grin. You allowed to doubt the competence of the leadership of the fleet and tried to "teach them how to live", despite your lack of even a hint of knowledge on driving submarines in the Arctic, why not "teach" you with your experienced sofa? winked

    The real challenge is to swim under the ice. I swam and I can imagine the complexity of this event. For couch experts and American "smart" it is boring, what else, when you don't understand anything. And to emerge within a radius of a penny of 300 meters is just great! Honor and praise to our submariners! I don't think GLONASS works well under the ice. This is the real coherence of the crews. Well, and the fact that only the conning tower surfaced, so the task was not set to shoot missiles. If there was such a task, the whole corps surfaced. There are many ways to do this. Purge all CHB, not one group, as shown. Finally get out and saws and cut the ice. All of this would have been done. You can also crush the ice with a torpedo. You shoot at a predetermined point for a couple of cables, and then pop up at the place where the torpedo detonated. It will be crumbly there. For the military, these are trifles, therefore, they limited themselves only to the ascent of felling. No repairs are required later. Some of the experts wrote about this. Well, now, too, a little humor. It's true, I'm not inventing anything.
    Two boats moved from the North to Kamchatka under the ice of the North Ocean. Mutual maneuvering was carried out with the help of ZPS (who does not know - sound-underwater communication). And now this connection is out of order. With difficulty we found the wormwood and surfaced. We agreed to maneuver under the ice over the radio by hitting the hull with a sledgehammer. Acoustics listen and report. In particular, the turns were discussed as follows: one blow - turn to the left, two hits - turn to the right. There were other blows, of course. And they knocked in the torpedo compartment, where it is convenient, interior decoration and cable routes do not interfere. And now the command is given two blows, a turn to the right. Well, they hear: Bang, bang, and then another bang! Why are three hits in the CPU? What a disgrace! And from the first compartment the midshipman reports. Yes, there were two blows, and the third ... I fell from the torpedo.

    Of course, the emergence is most likely a kind of publicity stunt. But the fact that one of the boats tested a new torpedo - gut! The torpedo, whose construction is already 40 years old, has waited for a replacement. Fortunately, under the ice, there is simply nothing to fight with. And the new one - "Physicist", has reduced the lag in weapons from the "penguins". The only thing left is to dispossess Sechin and Rottenberg and re-equip the entire northern fleet with Physicists.

    Ballistic missile launches are recorded and tracked. One starts - it will be intercepted with a high degree of probability, despite the setting of false targets, the missile defense operators will strain and do it alone together with the false ones. If there is a volley from one submarine, up to a dozen ICBMs are launched almost simultaneously (it doesn't matter that a couple got stuck, a couple flopped down next to scaring polar bears, it doesn't matter, because if it came to this, and so everyone hit left and right, everything that moves and launches all that can fart) - for tracking satellites, this is already strained, some launch may miss, which means one or more ICBMs will pass the acceleration trajectory untracked - goodbye America oh, of course, it will not happen, but priority targets from the first three dozen are guaranteed will be amazed.
    And now the question is, sofa connoisseurs - the same thing with three submarines, standing almost side by side? The satellites record this as one big launch, computers fail, operators change diapers, but almost EVERYTHING arrives! It is clear, we are all already in paradise, but as our supreme promised, you will simply die ...
