    as far as I understand, the goal would be to clear a beach from mines (I guess not just 'land' mines, but also 'beach zone' mines) before assaulting it

    Hey guys. What do you think of the USN anti-submarine capacity? Numerous times stories have been shared about french, swedish, Chinese (etc) submarines sneaking in the CSG's formation during exercices. Why don't we hear any actual successful ASM exercices coming from the USN proving that it's not that bad?

    pulling this from the Chinese Type 075 thread,
    Brumby that's your diversion which doesn't make Yesterday at 7:34 PM question disappear
    and I ask again about alleged recent instances of "VLS Tomahawk launches on trucks" except the show performed right after the US withdrawal from the INF
    Aug 19, 2019
    please note
    1. I don't tend to believe in coincidences, and
    2. the claim by Andy was "And we now see the US testing VLS Tomahawk launches on trucks."
    so:

    Was the submarine detectes or not, I don't know and I don't want to debate about this. All I'm asking is exercices where the US successfully detect enemy submarines. As far I as searched, it happened during rimpac-2006 and in the hunter shark 2015 exercice. I would like more examples.

    There is probably some truths to those incidents but the problem is when facts are incomplete then any conclusion can be clouded. Both incidents seem to imply that the sub was able to trail the carrier group. One of the reason why US subs are all nuclear powered is because conventional subs do not have the speed to keep up with a carrier group. How a Chinese conventional sub is able to trail a US carrier group is an issue I cannot reconcile with known facts. If the sub had simply lie in wait and was lucky to be in the pathway then it is possible but then the report of it successfully trailing would be incorrect. Do US carrier groups typically operate at speeds beyond conventional sub as a preventive operational maneuver I would not know.

    And hardly the most Mobile friendly one at that. They can probably attack a HET and drive it around but it’s about as Mobile as the Saturn V rocket was.
