    Is that something that typically gets leaked?

    Why is the Akula Class considered greater than the Oscar if its acoustics are inferior?

    I believe this is just horseshit stuff that the military does to justify increased military spending. If the threat was real, you would never show your opponent what you are capable of. Look at how long the stealth bomber was under wraps. Look how the military still won't release performance specs of the SR-71. We definitely weren't showing off the stealth bomber to the soviets to show them we have a stealthy plane now.

    The Ruskies and yanks played underwater cat and mouse for decades during the Cold War. Difference is the Russian sub fleet suffered immensely from the collapse of the USSR with many falling to neglect and disrepair. Not so in the USN.

    In short I would be extremely surprised if a sub like this had not had its various signatures and capabilties thoroughly mapped and understood by now. Sure, it might be shadowing various NATO vessels, but it might also have a shadow all of its own with Mk48 torpedoes ready and waiting.

    Same games we played when I was in.

    What most people fail to understand is an aircraft carriers primary job in a nuclear war. It to launch it's nuclear armed aircraft. Staying around after that is a bonus.

    Maybe I read the article wrong, but it said this was a drill where the CV was placed in the worst possible situation. So.... Nothing to see here or did I read it wrong?
