Kindness joint military exercises with China as the imaginary enemy anti-submarine warfare exercises focus

According to the U.S., “Navy Times” reported on September 12, the Italian Navy U212A type “Shire” was conventionally powered submarines, recently arrived in the United States Mei Bote Naval Submarine Base, and will participate in imaginary starting this week “Joint Task Force Exercise.” Discontinued in the country in the context of conventionally powered submarines, advanced conventional submarines to take his country when “sparring”, has become in recent years, the U.S. military to deal with Asia Pacific countries, especially the development of China’s submarine force, “tactical.” Some analysts pointed out that the U.S. invited the world’s top-class Italian submarines participating, with an obvious intention against China.
“Shire” was called “Super Silent King”
U.S. “Navy Times” reported that, in this by the “Truman” aircraft carrier battle group led exercises this week in northeastern Florida near Jacksonville, the city held in the waters, the purpose is to enhance the aircraft carrier battle groups at sea emergency crisis response capabilities, but also the carrier battle groups to prepare for overseas deployment. Invited to participating, “Shire” was, since the end of World War II is the second visit of the Italian naval ship. Last August, the sister boat of the boat – “萨尔瓦多托达 Law” was had participated in the “Roosevelt” aircraft carrier battle group in the Norfolk naval base at the same exercise. Some analysts said the United States twice invited the Italian Navy submarines participating, the emphasis is intended to produce extraordinary silent submarine capability.
U212A submarine jointly developed by Italy and Germany, have “the world’s most cattle conventionally powered submarines” in the world. The class of stealth and noise reduction design a must. Such as reducing the inboard hull structure, machinery and vibrational energy transfer out, all boats containing devices are installed on the base of the super-elastic damping; hull appearance of a new type of special absorbing coating (sound waves and radar) material that can be sonar and radar to avoid enemy detection; hull structural materials with low magnetic steel, equipped with high-performance boats on the degaussing system also can monitor the boat at any time the magnetic field strength, magnetic anomalies can be found in time degaussing, and so on.
new U.S. anti-submarine equipment in service next year
although, as the representative of the U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups with a variety of sea power and exploration potential means of attack submarine, but U.S. forces still have their sense of superiority at sea. In May 2003, the U.S. Navy introduced the “ability to enhance anti-submarine warfare,” the report, the number of potential rivals conventional submarines is increasing, China and Russia and the Korean mini-submarine submarines the U.S. Navy has been posing a threat. To this end, in recent years the U.S. has been seeking additional funds to enhance surveillance Submarine capacity, improve anti-submarine equipment.
is based on this consideration, the U.S. Navy was established in April 2004, the Navy anti-submarine Command, responsible for anti-submarine warfare. New anti-submarine warfare from the U.S. standpoint, the current U.S. focus on building a network exploration potential, because only the opportunities that can effectively combat its implementation. U.S. submarine is constantly improving, “anti-submarine chain”, and in the Asia-Pacific region, the U.S. military is along the so-called “first island chain” (referring to the North from the Japanese archipelago, Ryukyu Islands, Taiwan, the island then in the south Philippines, Sunda Islands chain-shaped island with), laid a new all-weather passive sonar. The system has low noise to detect submarines, the ability to detect distances over 550 km, high positioning accuracy and difficult to expose. At the same time, the U.S. military is also actively developing new anti-submarine equipment, such as shore-based alternative to P-3C anti-submarine patrol aircraft of the new generation of “multi-mission maritime aircraft”, has been in service in 2012. Kind, the biggest feature is the sensor with the UAV and satellite networking, remote and coastal low-noise detection of submarines.
Currently, the U.S. discontinued conventional submarines, and to improve the coastal anti-submarine warfare capability, the U.S. Navy in recent years, and his country attaches great importance to advanced conventional submarines in joint training. To strengthen the relevance, or even the United States had leased from Sweden, “Gotland” class submarines a year. In addition, the United States and Japan joint naval anti-submarine exercises frequently, the use of advanced conventional submarines in Japan to enhance the U.S. Navy anti-submarine capabilities.
for China’s intentions clear
submarine has a range far as to attack ability, high secrecy, it is difficult to detect and discovery features, a maritime fleet major killer. Military observers generally agreed that the rising U.S. Navy anti-submarine capacity building, largely in response to growing Chinese submarine force.
2006 In August, the U.S. Department of Defense submitted to Congress, “China’s submarine Report” that the building has become China’s submarine force development priorities of the Navy, the submarine the next 15 years China will form a local advantage of the United States. 2050, between China and the number of submarines will be expanded to more than three to one. November 2008, the U.S. submarine force commander 杰伊唐纳利 Admiral Submarine Institute speech in Australia claimed that the Chinese navy is a growing threat, the US-Australia should strengthen cooperation and jointly cope with the Chinese submarine “World the most deadly force. ” Donnelly said, in response to China’s military, especially the development of China’s submarine force, the United States now has 60 percent of its submarines deployed to the Pacific shift. Military analysts have pointed out that the frequent speculation in the U.S. in recent years the Chinese Navy submarine hidden track the U.S. “Kitty Hawk” aircraft carrier battle group, is a concentrated expression of this concern.
