Media: Not three, but five submarines surfaced in the Arctic, one of which launched an ICBM


March 26, 2021 Russians demonstratedhow three of their nuclear submarines with ballistic missiles on board simultaneously emerge from under the ice near the Franz Josef Land archipelago in the Arctic Ocean, writes the American online edition The Drive.


On March 29, Maxar Technologies published satellite images of the area, dated March 27, on its Twitter account. On one of the images, four nuclear submarine ascents were recorded, and on the other - "a large hole in the ice."


Perhaps the gigantic "hole" was formed as a result of "underwater demolition" (the emergence of a submarine or the impact of a torpedo). Next to it in the picture is the nuclear submarine of project 667BDRM "Dolphin" (NATO designation - Delta-IV).

In any case, this impressive opening is perfect for launching ballistic missiles. At the same time, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has not yet provided details about the real number of nuclear submarines that took part in the Umka-2021 military exercises, and which of them carried out torpedo firing under the ice, the US media summed up.

Note that single surfacing of Russian nuclear submarines in the Arctic is a routine matter. A big surprise for both Russian and Western experts was the emergence of a large group of nuclear submarines at the same time and the conduct of underwater torpedo firing. The firing should clearly show the ability and readiness of Russian submariners to destroy enemy submarines under the thickness of the Arctic ice.

Also of note is the “smoked ice” around the hole discovered by Maxar Technologies. The ice really could have been broken by a torpedo attack, but the trail left also speaks of the operation of the rocket engine. Therefore, it is likely that after the torpedoes broke the ice, one of the nuclear submarines launched an ICBM from under the water into the hole. If the ICBM was launched from the surface position, then such a distinct round trace would not have remained on the ice. All this indicates the likelihood that five Russian nuclear submarines could take part in the exercises at once.

    maybe this is not an exercise, but a dress rehearsal.

    PS where and how did they see the soot?

          Has the ice turned black on its own?

            and there is blue water?
            everything is the same color in the picture - both water and a submarine

              Black ice, dirty water, soot, soot. These are the consequences of the operation of the TTRD.

                no. here's an example. it is not dirty water. this is a visual effect

                  An example of what? This is the edge of the ice. It is thin and transparent. Through it you can see the blue of the deep sea. In the photo with the submarines, the ice is thick, it does not shine through.

                  I also found such a sign: the upper hemisphere of the "smoked circle" is blacker than the lower one. When the missile comes out from under the water, it immediately deflects vertically towards the target.

      The guys surfaced, hollowed out a hole, went fishing, made a fire ... and these creeps are looking for some kind of hidden trail fool

        And the 5th boat surfaced, but in a different place, while everyone frantically counted 3, 4 or even 5 ... :-)

    A big surprise, both for Russian experts and Westerners, was the emergence of a large group of nuclear submarines at the same time and underwater torpedo firing.

    Little attention is paid to this detail.
    It is interesting that now there will be experts who have flooded the Internet with stories that the Russian fleet is not capable of this what Like these articles

    It is likely that our management did not say and show everything. This unsaid will be a surprise for our "partners" in due time. They said about underwater torpedo shooting, but did not show it.

    I immediately said that someone took off in the float of three. So someone either ran on skis or surfaced earlier

    There was no rocket. There was a test (the so-called - shooting) one !!! new torpedo. Perhaps it was caught. The torpedo is called "Physicist", and some talk about "Case". Fished out through an ice-hole. So do we, and so do the Americans. True, the Americans are shooting dozens of torpedoes during the exercises. Rich. Yes, and our "new" - an analogue of the SSHPShnoy 20-30 years ago.
    Few, very few, and very slowly developing "retrofitting". There are no 73%. We are being bullied for the rating. It's time to make a leap, otherwise they will trample.

      It takes a lot of money to make breakthroughs. And you can't cook porridge with oligarchs. They have personal overconsumption: apartments for billions of dollars, yachts, etc. worthless scales. And fuck them all these jerks.

    everything is fair - someone was filming the group ascent of 3 submarines, which means it was either the polar bear Umka, or the crew of another submarine. I was immediately struck by a comment on TV showing the ascent footage, the reporter did not say a word who was shooting, apparently it goes without saying that webcams are now not only on the streets and roads, but also on the poles.

    In itself, such maneuvering by the pl group is not a trivial matter: you cannot look out the window. And then under the ice and such a rapprochement. Commanders and superiors on board will receive well-deserved awards. As well as everyone else involved in these wonderful actions!
