I don’t believe you!

The U.S. MSM, the POTUS, the joint Chiefs, and the department of defense told me they had zero knowledge that the entirety of the Taliban and ISIS were descending upon Kabul. They told me a caravan of goat herders armed with AK-47’s & rocket launchers riding 30 y.o. Toyotas and mini bikes surprised and overwhelmed the US armed forces. We weren’t able to track this ragtag group of terrorists from space with a black budget in the billions, why would anyone believe they can track a Russian nuclear attack sub in the ocean depths?

Exactly, the Navy knows exactly where that piece of shite is. I won’t lose a wink of sleep over it.

I get the doubt on here WRT incompetence in government, but don’t confuse bureaucracy with the front line folks that actually care about doing their job.

My BIL used to fly out there, shut down two engines and circle around for 12 hours at a time listening for those SOBs.

Right. Multiple US tests conducted at depth. If they really wanted to screw us they would do an updated Starfish Prime style space nuke.

The drone can be deployed from the submarine at any time and detonated at a depth of 1 kilometer near a coastal city. Russian state media has claimed the device can create a 1,600-ft. wave that smashes into the coast and irradiates it.

Wonder how they calculated the water column weight above a detonation source point 1km down? Water is heavy, Ivan. And, must be the fastest sub in the world to quickly exit the blast zone's sea water pressure wave. Oops maybe not, that drone can't fly forever.

Our guys will have fun tracking this red herring.

I would liked to have seen Montana.

Navy has had trouble with newer Russian attack subs

People have zero comprehension of the amount of energy needed to do shite like this. Even our most powerful devices are a mouse fart compared to what earth can dish out and as far as I know, there's never been a 1600 foot tidal wave. That's a third of a mile.

Why do you think a drone that would detonate a nuke a kilometer below the sea would ever fly?

In the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle universe, for AUV's (i.e. Drone) the term "flight path" is used to denote the mission profile's pre-programmed navigation track at launch. I've never heard it called "swim" in either the Defense or Commercial sector. Subsea based systems of course don't fly in the air.

A large defense contractor developed one for commercial use that spun off a military version launched from torpedo tubes. I was on their commercial partner's engineering team, serving as my company's technical authority.

I've sailed on around 20 fast attack and boomer subs in my career, helping calibrate the Nav Systems, and their interface to Sonar and missile guidance systems. The Navy does this for every new build's commissioning sea trials, and again at major dry dock periods.

They are complex, fascinating and marvelous machines using technology the civilian world is largely not aware exists. My security clearance obligation survives, and doesn't allow me to discuss those. Much of it can be gleaned reading the right sources on the web, but not all.

So do subs fly? If that's accepted nomenclature I'll have to accept it, until the civilian submarine populace expands and corrects this gross misuse of flight

Like surface ships, they "sail."

Welcome to the world of obscure engineering terminology.

The three letter (or more) military industry acronyms are the worst.

The ocean floor has been heavily seeded with listening devices out from every known Russian Naval base, (both submarine and boat base). We know every time a boat passes by our sensors, moving out to sea. Thankd to computer analysis of sound signatures, the sensors are good enough to not be fooled if a submarine is moving under a noisy surface vessel.

The boat referenced here was a known threat, before it was even completed and put to sea the first time. There is no way a US vessel is not creaping along beind the sub, lstening and learning all it is possible to learn about it.

Obviously, if the sub launched an underwater drone, we would know that. Hopefully we would react to it and have another vesssel ready to intercept the drone and take it out. Also, if the russian vessel approached the US coastline, we would be ready to stop it.
