Did you lose another one of those subs?
 
2013-06-01 01:16:02 PM  
I don't think the general strategy of the Soviet Union was to have subs off our coast. They accepted that they weren't the quietest in the world and assumed they wouldn't last long patrolling alone.

I thought they grouped most of them together in the arctic within range of Soviet air patrols and screened by attack subs.

Russia just isn't as scary as they used to be. Sorry comrade.

Meh, who says US is the only one allowed to do it?  Non story.

Liquid-fuel sub missiles?

Is that a good idea?

When I was twelve, I helped my Daddy build a bomb shelter in our basement, because some damn fool parked a dozen warheads ninety miles off the coast of Florida. These subs could make a ton a noise and leak oil all over the coast of Washington or New York and the Coast Guard would end up needing to come to their rescue.

[cue ominous music]

How about becuase  Russia is essentially an continental power while the US is a maritime one.

Liquid propellants can't develop cracks like solid propellants can. Solid booster with a crack = kaboom.

I know this book, your conclusions were all wrong Ryan, Halsey acted stupidly.
 
2013-06-01 04:58:54 PM  
We've had 23 years to prepare for this, and we've used the time well. Seaman Beaumont now knows a hell of a lot more about sonar than does a whale, Ryan is aware the average Ruskie doesn't take a dump without a plan, and COB realises and accepts that he is not Sheena, Queen of the Jungle.

Don't tell that to a Russian. They really don't believe the Cold War is over.

WTF?

A few years ago we towed a sub out of Vladavostok to Vancouver.
Tourist thing.

I love the fact that at the time, American nukes stationed next door to the USSR in Turkey was perfectly acceptable, but Soviet missiles in Cuba was a 100% unforgivable act of aggression.
 
2013-06-01 05:10:40 PM  
Did you mean "lie off"?  "Lay off" means "leave alone."

But anyway, as THX 1138 pointed out....

And just like 20 years ago there's probably an American attack sub sitting right beside them.

Russia, mother country, doesn't have enough money to scrape a baboon's ass wants to parade nukes around the globe.  Good luck to them.  Remember Kursk (sad).
