Increase Russian nuclear submarines & # 39; underwater duels & # 39;
Russian nuclear submarines organize "underwater duels" while testing western defenses across the Atlantic, "causing NATO alerts for military analysts"
- A few Russian subs played & # 39; sparring & # 39; war games in the Norwegian Sea last week
- Another duo played a war scenario with the West off the coast of Kamchatka
- Russian media said NATO analysts were worried about showing strength
Russian fast-paced nuclear submarines have stepped up "duels" under water, while NATO's defense between Scotland, Iceland and Greenland in the Atlantic is also being tested, reports in Moscow say.
The most recent cat and mouse game last week concerned North Fleet submarines Nizhny Novgorod and Pskov in & # 39; sparring and tracking & # 39; war games.
& # 39; They performed electronic launches and at the end of the exercise real launches of torpedo & # 39; s without warheads, & # 39; reported the official Russian government newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
Russian media have reported that submarines for rapid nuclear attacks have been involved in two & # 39; underwater duel & # 39; scenario & # 39; s in recent weeks. The most recent war games took place when the Nizhny Novgorod, pictured on the right, the Pskov, pictured on the left, challenged in & # 39; sparring and tracking & # 39; simulations in the Norwegian Sea. Russian media added that the Pskov and Novgorod, known as the & # 39; titanium destroyers & # 39 ;, were of particular interest to NATO military analysts
The Russian navy launched another & # 39; duel & # 39; in the waters around Kamchatka. The Vladimir Monomakh submarine, pictured, and Alexander Nevsky submarines fought in a simulated battle scenario and Russian media reported that one of them acted as the Western enemy
& # 39; Previously, submarines conducted submersions to maximum depth and tested new weapons in the Norwegian Sea. & # 39;
Another & # 39; duel & # 39; – with one nuclear submarine playing the role of a western enemy – was led by the Alexander Nevksy and Vladimir Monomakh ships off the coast of Kamchatka.
Rossiyskaya Gazeta claimed that his western military enemies & # 39; most alarmed & # 39; Russian training sessions in the North Atlantic focused on & # 39; invading an anti-submarine barrier deployed by the Alliance between Greenland, Iceland and Scotland & # 39; equipped with the SOSUS sonar system.
Arms race? Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin shake hands in Helsinki in July – but there is a growing fear of a new arms race between their two countries
Participation in the exercise of Sierra III class submarines Nizhny Novgorod and Pskov & # 39; triggered special alarm among NATO military analysts & # 39 ;.
The report stated: & # 39; They have the nickname & # 39; titanium shredders & # 39; for the hull material and the range of missions performed, the most important of which is the destruction of strategic submarines of the enemy and courier groups at the start of a conflict.
& # 39; The fast submarines can secretly move across great depths, and their armaments – torpedoes, rocket-torpedoes & Kalibr cruise missiles – make boats of this type the most formidable marine predators. # 39;
