Brits are hunting russian sub.

Poseidon, 4 Stratotankers, 3 helicopters all near Aberdeen. I smell anti-sub action.

    The fuck do you need a stratotanker for if you're hunting a sub that close to friendly airspace?

      The RAF has other planes too you know.

      The British Navy has to do this shit all the time, since the cold war. It's not training. RU subs love fucking with national waters to test response times.

      It's nothing important, just the vatniks trying to ruffle feathers during the Rammstein meeting.

      Honestly at this point, past the initial training to get you up to speed with the systems on the aircraft, hunting down Russian subs IS training.

          Training, maybe there are fighter exercises off the coast and they need that many to refuel them. Or maybe there's a couple of B-52s flying through that actually need that much fuel.

          Rest assured if they're actually doing anything important they won't have their civilian transponders on.

            I love in Jacksonville, they fly p8s all the time because you have to train. And yeah, they fly 4 at a time together. It's pretty usual.

            Its training. You can have 4-5 fighters training on one single tanker, or you can swap it around and train tanker crews with a single receiver aircraft

            Nice, makes me wonder what other stuff's up there with them.

              P3s, the smaller AWACs birds, helicopters, I've seen f18s with buddy stores etc. Every possible aircraft gets training.

            This, if they have the transponder on it's because they aren't doing anything important or to flex air superiority. But if it's something remotely important they disable everything, even when they do more intensive training, because when i hear or see military jets fly over my house (unironically) sometimes they don't appear on trackers.

          Nah the RAF/RN absolutely will drop a sonobuoy on your ass if they don't like you being there. There was a case during the cold war of a navy (USN I think) continuously tailing a Soviet submarine to the point the crew were exhausted, ran out of oxygen and had to surface. It took like 24 straight hours.

          Pinging a sub repeatedly and fucking over intelligence collection isn't a declaration of war :^)

                Explain to me why you need 4 KC135´s to support a single P8

              • 2 weeks ago
                Anonymous

                Because there will be more p8s later. Some of those 135s aren't operated by the military and are privately contracted for training operations.

              not that anon but I'm not sure why you think a NATO ASW aircraft dropping buoys on a russian sub is somehow schizo habbening material. It's not that uncommon same with QRF intercepting Russian bombers. Do you shit yourself every time you see a typhoon posing next to a backfire?

                as for what the P-8 was actually doing the fact it only seems to have turned on its transponder as it is heading back to land tells me it probably was doing a legit mission either maritime surveillance or ASW and maybe tanked off the tankers either for training or because it was a really fucking long mission.

            USN Strurgeons have done missions tailing russian subs for months on end, with at least one mission lasting over 6 months with them losing the sub only twice before immediately finding it again, once due to a storm and another due to some accident with a shipping vessel.

        At this point they should just run it by the US Navy that it's not one of theirs and then start spamming depth charges at any unidentified contact within national waters. Enough of this probing bullshit, put Russia in its rightful place - the bottom of the sea.

          >how to piss off the French
          They just drop sonobuoys around the submarine, classify it, then ping it a few times to fuck with it. Depth charging any random underwater contact is only going to happen during the leadup to WW3.

    The P-8 is one of the USN ones based in the UK, not one of the RAF's
