Reputation with the victory of Chinese submarines are kept strictly confidential and played against both (Figure)

U.S. Global Strategic Network reported on June 17 article said that on June 11, the U.S. destroyer Mackay Well number near the waters of Subic Bay, Philippines, training, the towed sonar submarine collided with the Chinese. The United States has not publicly whether U.S. warships in the collision is detected before the Chinese submarine. If the towed sonar array is not on, the U.S. warships is not possible to detect submerged submarines of China. Chinese Foreign Ministry later confirmed the incident.
U.S. media said the submarine was obviously aware of the presence of U.S. warships, but did not realize that their use of towed sonar. (Towed sonar in use, generally ships to speed navigation, sonar operate at depths exceeding 100 meters, the ship about 2 km away drag it forward. Sonar array in the water flow noise in the ocean in the background is negligible.
event in the Chinese submarine is a diesel – electric conventionally powered submarines in the water when their speed sailing quieter than nuclear submarines. This incident is reminiscent of the Cold War in the Soviet Union suffered a series of sea which Some collisions are considered “espionage”, which aims to get towed sonar array is part of U.S. warships to be studied later.
Soviet submarines during the Cold War as a “game”, the U.S. anti-submarine forces ( submarines, aircraft and surface ships) and a Chinese submarine “grips” are increasing the U.S. Navy submarine want to hone their skills found in China, while all of these will be kept strictly confidential, because no matter how “grips” the result of a failure or success, This information will be studied by the Chinese, the use of.
1983, the U.S. Navy, “McCloy” number (FF-1038) frigate is testing the most advanced towed sonar, sonar array results was wrapped in tracking the Soviet Northern Fleet nuclear submarine propeller on the K324. K-324 can not sail, can emerge. Then came the U.S. Navy Spruance-class destroyers surrounded it, trying to recapture confidential sonar array, during which U.S. warships trying to cut close through the end of the submarine in the Soviet submarines around the propeller on the antenna, but did not succeed the two sides deadlocked for a full 10 days, K-324 submarine was ready even to prevent them from being captured from the sink. the Fortunately, rescue boats rushed to the Soviet Union Aldan number, the K-324 submarine maintenance onto Cuba, the United States to send this “gift” was sent back to the Soviet Union to study the local community.
Victor class ( referred to as Class V), the development of the former Soviet Navy’s second-generation nuclear-powered attack submarine, is currently the Russian Navy nuclear-powered attack submarine force main, a total of V-Ⅰ, V-Ⅱ and V-Ⅲ three models, the collision ship events lead K-324 belongs to one of the most advanced V-III type. V-III equipment and some SS-N-21 submarine-launched land-attack cruise missiles with a range of more than the U.S. “Tomahawk”, up to 3,000 km.
1963 began service, “Stan Brown” class is smaller U.S. Navy frigate, built a total of only two main weapons are “ASROC” an anti-submarine rocket launchers, dual-mounted 76 mm gun 2, triple anti-submarine torpedo tubes mounted 2, a carrier-based anti-submarine helicopters.
Although it came to the U.S. Spruance class destroyer Soviet submarine K-324 siege, but in the end the Soviet submarine or in the “Aldan” was the help of a successful escape.
