Northern Fleet Chases Out American Submarine Illegally Intruding in Russian Territorial Waters

00 northern Fleet. 10.08.14

______________________________

On Saturday, a high-ranking naval source told us that Northern Fleet anti-submarine forces detected and chased an intruding US submarine from Russian territorial waters, saying, “On 7 August 2014, patrol forces of the Northern Fleet detected a foreign submarine, presumably, a US Navy Virginia-class boat, in the Barents Sea. We sent anti-submarine ships, as well as an Il-38 ASW aircraft, to the area to search for it and track it down”. Russian forces chased the submarine out of Russian waters after a 27-minute contact. Our source said, “This is far from being an isolated incident, we’ve found foreign submarines in the Barents Sea lately. NATO submarines cause serious navigational incidents many times”. In 1992, the USS Baton Rouge collided with the Northern Fleet submarine K-276 Krab in Kolsky Bay. In 1986, the submarine HMS Splendid collided with a Northern Fleet PL Project 941 Akula SSBN.

The famed submarine K141 Kursk, lost in northern waters under murky circumstances, was of this class.

Nuclear-powered Cruise Missile Submarines (SSGN/PLARK) of the Project 949A Antei class have the mission of destroying enemy aircraft carrier battle groups and other surface targets. Distinguishing characteristics of this class are negligible noise levels, remarkable manoeuvrability, and high submerged speed. To find out more about this class of submarines, known throughout the fleet as “the aircraft carrier killers”, see our infographic.

In the morning on 16 September, a fire broke out during welding on the PLARK K150 Tomsk, at the Zvezda shipyard in Bolshoi Kamen in Primorsky Krai. No one was injured in the fire, and there was no radioactive leakage. The proximate cause of the fire was a violation of safety regulations. The Tomsk was laid down on 27 August 1991 at Sevmash shipyard in Severodvinsk. On 13 April 1993, the government of Tomsk Oblast  took on sponsorship of the ship, resulting in it being named Tomsk. In July 1996, the submarine was launched. In March 1997, the Tomsk became part of the Northern Fleet; on 9 October 1998, the sub was transferred to the Pacific Fleet, with a homeport at Krasheninnikov Bay in Kamchatka. Click here for technical details of the Tomsk.
