Russian submarine chases NATO aircraft carrier

A Russian submarine chases an aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean.

The British naval command announced that the Russian submarine, one of those based at the Russian naval base in Tartus, Syria, pursued the British aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth, which was left without escort ships. It was for this reason that a large number of NATO anti-submarine and reconnaissance aircraft were located in the eastern Mediterranean.

“A Russian submarine pursued the Royal Navy's carrier strike group (AUG), prompting a helicopter hunt for the vessel. Merlin helicopters were sent to search for the Russian submarine as the group passed through the eastern Mediterranean. Two planes dropped sonar buoys, equipment designed to be submerged in search of submarines. This was done to heed its distinctive sounds after submarines allegedly tracked HMS Queen Elizabeth, the new British aircraft carrier and escort ships. The hunt for the submarine began four days after the collision in the Black Sea between the 45 HMS Defender type air defense ship and Russian troops. ", - according to the British edition "Daily Telegraph".

It is known that Russia indeed sent all its submarines and ships, which were stationed at the Russian Navy base in Syrian Tartus, to the eastern Mediterranean Sea. At the same time, it is possible that Russian Tu-22M3 bombers and MiG-31K fighter-interceptors also trained in striking an aircraft carrier strike group and the aircraft carrier itself.

The news is good, but the presentation is illiterate. A modern DPL cannot "chase an aircraft carrier" because their speeds are not comparable. To take a certain position for the use of weapons, yes. But this period cannot be long. So teach materiel.
