A good find, but I read the purpose to be against Spetsnaz infiltration (the navy SF has some other name, but they are basically for the same duties, just assuming a frogman op to be part of the overall mission).donald_of_tokyo wrote:the sonobuoy(s) are located apart. The [boats can "hunt" SSKs "towards the buoy", waiting as an ambush.] Existence of such tool will significantly restrict the maneuver of the SSKs, I guess.
Ruskies have been running around the Swedes in circles for decades when they have been practising how to get through, to the navy bases (not quite all the way, exc. for the famous Whisky on the rocks).
- this will put an end to it (even the bottom crawling insertion craft make a sound) when you have, as pointed out, a quickly deployable buoyo network and boats that can go everywhere, over shallows
- even if this happens after detection, the vehicle will not be taking anyone back to the sub that originally transported them for deployment
Ruskies themselves are v aware of different types of threats to naval bases, but do the defence (detection) differently, as can be seen here: http://www.hisutton.com/Russian-Navy-In ... Syria.html
