Navy detects Russian sub off U.S. East Coast

By Mike Mount

The U.S. Navy detected and tracked a Russian nuclear-powered attack submarine less than 300 miles from the southern U.S. East Coast last month, according to U.S. defense officials.

While the submarine did not enter U.S. territorial waters or follow any U.S. Navy ships, its arrival came while a Navy carrier strike group was training off Florida, according to defense officials who could not speak publicly because of the sensitivity of the issue.

The move by the Russians to put the ship close to the U.S. demonstrates its desire to ramp up deep-water patrolling by its submarine fleet - something the Russian government has said it would do, officials said.

The newer Sierra-2 submarine is thought to be part of the Russian Northern Fleet, and this is the first time this class of sub has been detected this close to the U.S., the officials said.

The sub was discovered about 275 miles off the southern East Coast in international waters about two weeks ago and has been followed by the Navy since, defense officials said. Officials said the sub did not come close to the major U.S. Navy submarine base at Kings Bay, Georgia, home to attack and ballistic missile submarines.

"Things worked the way they were supposed to," according to one of the officials when referencing how the Navy discovered the submarine.

While the officials would not disclose how the submarine was detected, the Navy has sensors in the air and water to detect and track such vessels.

The submarine has since turned back, and on Tuesday, it was about 600 miles off the U.S. coast heading eastward toward Europe, according to Navy officials.

It is not clear what the submarine was doing this close to the U.S., but officials say they assume it was conducting anti-submarine exercises, a return to a Cold War activity.

"They are doing what the U.S. does, patrolling and conducting exercises," one of the officials told Security Clearance.

The detection of the sub was first reported in the Washington Free Beacon.

The Sierra-2 is similar to the U.S. Los Angeles-class attack submarine and does not carry ballistic missiles - only torpedoes and other anti-submarine weapons.

The last time a Russian sub was detected close to the United States was in 2009, according to defense officials.

    Local Law 196 is a NYC DOB law that requires workers and supervisors at most NYC construction sites to obtain a SST card by completing specific courses through a NYC DOB approved training provider. Able Safety offers multiple packages to complete this training at great low prices. All our SST classes can be completed entirely online from any device (phone, tablet, pc/mac). The NYC DOB’s SST compliance deadline was originally set for September 1st 2020. The deadline has since been extended to March 1st 2021. By this date you will need the following to be allowed to work on most construction sites in NYC.

    Thanks for the suggestions you reveal through this website. In addition, many young women who become pregnant tend not to even attempt to get medical health insurance because they have anxiety they probably would not qualify. Although some states at this point require that insurers give coverage irrespective of the pre-existing conditions. Fees on most of these guaranteed plans are usually greater, but when taking into consideration the high cost of health care it may be your safer route to take to protect a person's financial future.

    The first thing to do before you look into any metal detector is to get your hands on some advice. You can either visit a shop or you can check online, looking at different metal detectors and checking out what they have to offer.

    I've learned quite a few important things by means of your post. I will also like to express that there will be a situation in which you will make application for a loan and never need a cosigner such as a Federal government Student Aid Loan. In case you are getting a loan through a standard loan service then you need to be ready to have a cosigner ready to enable you to. The lenders can base their own decision on the few variables but the biggest will be your credit score. There are some loan companies that will additionally look at your work history and determine based on this but in almost all cases it will depend on your scores.

    I have noticed that online degree is getting well-known because accomplishing your college degree online has changed into a popular solution for many people. A huge number of people have not really had a possible opportunity to attend a normal college or university nonetheless seek the elevated earning potential and career advancement that a Bachelors Degree provides. Still other folks might have a diploma in one course but would want to pursue something they now develop an interest in.
