    Angry Chinese embarass Kitty Hawk Carrier Group

    No good!!!

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...red-faced.html

    A Chinese Song class submarine surfaced a few hundred feet from the USS Kitty Hawk, having slipped past all the dozen escort vessels as well as the two US subs that normally shadow carrier groups. Nobody saw them until they popped up. They were well within torpedo range of the Carrier.

    Even if we cut overall military spending, we need to increase funding to military R&D. We cannot afford to lag behind in the technology race.

    I think was was broadly stupid...they showed that we need to figure out their song engines in peace time instead of during a military attack...the just lost the suprise which is key to winning wars. Just think they could have railed all four of the main carriers at once with those song's if that was indeed how it became undetected and struck, now we know and guess what, they lost the suprise.

    But China is flexing its muscles...and people will learn that when push comes to shove this is going to get ugly.

    Please, there's been stories going around for a while now about diesel-electric submarines being able to penetrate US carrier groups. Allegedly in Ocean Venture 81 a Canadian diesel-electric submarine was able to basically camp under the US battle group.

    There's nothing special about the chinese subs; most modern diesel-electrics are able to run much quieter than their nuclear-powered counter parts, and thus avoid detection much more easily.
    "This is a ridiculous cause and effect suggestion."
    "Yeah, kind of like the sun rising and then morning happening, eh? What are they trying to pull on us?"

    "If I wanted to hear from an asshole, I'd fart into a microphone."

    "It's easy. Take the last f*ck, and let it go, and thus you shall have no more f*cks to give."

    They're mostly garbage, old British Oberon-class and Upholder-class submarines.
