An American submarine was discovered by a frigate of the Russian Navy in the territorial waters of Russia in the Kuriles

On February 12, in the area of ​​maneuvers of the forces and assets of the Pacific Fleet of the Russian Navy in Russian territorial waters near the Urup Island of the Great Kuril Islands, a US Navy multi-purpose nuclear submarine of the Virginia class was discovered. This is stated in the communiqué of the Russian Ministry of Defense, posted on the website of the department.

Russian sailors from a Navy frigate transmitted a message in Russian and English to the crew of the nuclear submarine of probable "partners" in Russian and English that an American submarine had sailed into Russian territorial waters and ordered "Surface immediately!" However, the American side cynically ignored the legitimate demand of the Russians.

After that, the frigate "Marshal Shaposhnikov" (project 1155M) used "appropriate means." But the US nuclear submarine "used a self-propelled simulator to split the target on the means of radar and acoustic control" and sailed away with the highest possible speed for it. Then a detachment of Pacific Fleet ships continued the exercises, including controlling the underwater situation to prevent violations of the Russian state border. Thus, the submarine failed to hide and monitor the actions of Russian ships.

We remind you that at the end of April 2021, Marshal Shaposhnikov returned to the fleet. It was in the process of upgrading from a large anti-submarine ship (BOD) to a frigate. It was armed with 3S24 Uran, 3S14 Caliber, Onyx, Zircon missiles and the Otvet anti-submarine missile system (PLRK).

The ship's anti-submarine armament also includes: MGK-355 "Polynom" - a subsurface search sonar station for all-round visibility and target designation, necessary to detect submarines, torpedoes and sea anchor mines; two twelve-barreled RBU-6000 rocket and bomb launchers designed to destroy enemy submarines and torpedoes; 8 anti-submarine self-guided electric torpedoes of caliber 533 mm "SET-65". What kind of "relevant means" were used against the American "guests" is not specified.

    "Marshal Shaposhnikov" does not have BUGAS. SET-65 III torpedoes, not SET-65 (for 30 years they are not included in the ammunition load of the Navy ships). Torpedoes SET-65 III were outdated by the beginning of the 80s of the last century, without remote control. Against modern submarines, even diesel ones are so-so. More like for the psychological support of the crew.
    (PLRK) "Answer" is effective against nuclear warheads in the warhead. With a conventional explosive (explosive), you will have to use the entire ammunition load against a submarine. The probability of hitting an underwater target will be no higher than 0.4, and then if it is a diesel submarine.

        I minus all Himmler's comments without reading.
        Checked - there is nothing but Russophobic nonsense in the comments.

    I can imagine how it stank in the submarine today)) they probably ran away in gas masks, Amer clowns made sure that their "invisibles" were easily detected and in wartime they would have been destroyed, but in peacetime they were allowed to leave

    Those. having found an armed enemy hiding in his house who did not fulfill the requirements of the owner of the house, did they simply allow him to leave? They probably weren't even pursued.
    Here is a case when it was possible to show Russia's determination to ignore security requirements!
    Not ready for this. And there is no answer. Everything is pretense, like Putin's pompous reflections in front of Western journalists and sweaty fists.
    Everything will be as before (even worse - everyone saw weakness). There will be missiles near Kharkov and much more.

      The frigate commander immediately reported contact with a foreign submarine to the head of the exercise. And he - the operational duty officer of the fleet. But the Navy Commander-in-Chief did not receive permission from the Minister of Defense to attack the submarine. The Pacific sailors had every opportunity to attack a foreign submarine in their territorial waters. In a recent telephone conversation with the elderly Biden, the President of Russia generously did not touch on this topic.
