Bring the Pain

Utilizing diesel submarines from other countries is nothing new for the US Navy. I’ve seen boat crews from Peru, Columbia, and Chile pulling into Norfolk for years to go play with our surface fleet as the skimmers desperately try to prove that they can, in fact, find submarines.

If my memory serves correctly, the results are usually distinctly in the favor of the little guy…if you’re picking up what I’m putting down.

I’ve always been a big fan of the DESI program (Diesel Electric Submarine Initiative) because, like the article says, it’s better to bleed in practice than in war.

This particular JTFX, for the TR CSG, should be especially interesting because it introduces the newest, sexiest player on the block (pictured above for your sub pr0n pleasure) the ITS Salvatore Todaro. A German-built, AIP equipped diesel.

For those not familiar with AIP, it stands for Air-Independent Propulsion. What does it mean? Depending on the system used, it means that the diesel submarine doesn’t need to snorkel twice a day (spoken: Make ass tons of noise) to recharge its battery. The Type 212 submarine, like the TODARO, uses a hydrogen fuel cell that will allow it to run at low speeds for up to THREE WEEKS without recharging.

I really hope we get to hear how this exercise turns out in the open source world. It would probably greatly help with the thesis I’m writing on ASW.

We’ll see how it all works out in the end. Until then, I’m just going to chalk one up for the sub team.

    It is great that we are able to get these Diesels to come play with us and you are correct that we usually don’t do too well against them because of the way the games are written. The games play to their strengths and not to ours (speed & distance). The surface guys have a hard time finding any sub, but bless their hearts they keep trying until the courts shutdown their sonars. I have had some detailed experience with this and I think we would still do pretty well if the Admirals allow the carriers to move around some.

    Is it really that mismatched? In the real world what are the odds? 50/50? less?

        Don’t beat yourself up. If you make eaintg mistakes just make note of it, get back on, and keep it movin’ I am semi-vegetarian, on my way to complete veggie. When I slip, I know to just go back to where my goals are. If someone thinks they can do anything cold turkey they are fooling themselves.And the slowdown of the weight loss is normal. Almost everyone loses a lot at first and then it slows down .initially it is the toxins that have built up being lost, so at least you know a lot of that is gone! Lastly, I take Alli, and it really does work. It separates the fat that you eat from your body. I am not what you would really call overweight, but as I get older I try to look my best. Alli has made me lose 2 sizes in two months .you might want to try it out, just make sure to stick to the instructions good luck!

    I’d say less.

    Far far less. Anyone with submarine tactical experience will agree that any surface ship within weapons range of a submarine is going to die 99% of the time.

    Only chance an aircraft carrier has is not to be near a submarine.

      Kf6nig disse: direto do fundo do mar Apenas pennsmeato positivo ne3o ajuda em nada ae7f5es positivas SIM.O Tamoio ja afundou o Principe de Asturias com sua escolta sem ser percebido.A fore7a de submarinos e9 a fore7a de disuae7e3o mais poderosa que temos.Mas creio que dos submarinos enviados para os EUA o U-212 seja o mais poderoso em ponto de vista de ser Stealth infelizmente ne3o contamos com submarinos aqui.Mas uns 20/25 Tikunas seriam o bastante.Ai eu acordo e caio da cama Saudae7f5es
