    Seriously. This is just a game that the fast attack subs play with each other.

    We absolutely do the same thing.

    In fact, this is what the LA class subs spend their time doing in the Atlantic...following Russian subs around and dodging in and out of their waters.

    In the pacific, we do the same thing with the Chinese subs.

    It was, not much anymore. What's wrong with the picture, however, is that we all know about it.

    No. Not likely, that. Their boats were noisy damn things.

    But we've certainly followed them and their "trawlers" off shore to see what they were up to in the Cold War.

    I bet. Communist technology and what not. The fact they worked at all is shocking.

    Nothing to see here, really. Just typical stuff.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    If they ever fire off a few rounds, by all means start a thread. Just hanging out offshore? Whatever.

    Hmm so the Russian have sent over two of their Schuka-B/Akula Class Boat no biggie. The one that was caught running on the Surface appears to be either K-267 Drakon an Akula I update or K-328 Leopard also a Akula Class I update.

    As for the other boat I would suspect it is either K-157 Vepr the lead Akula II class boat or K-335 Gepard third boat in the Akula II Class. One thing is sure they are from the 24th Division of the Northern Fleet and are based in Saida-guba,Gadzhievo.

    This act by the Russians is most likely a combination of the Russian need to try and make beleive that they are still a world class super power and also maybe a marketing campaign. The Russians have been trying to sell some subs to the Indians ( Hindistani not North American). So they could very well be displaying the ange the capabilities of their subs.
