You have to hand it to those Russians they don’t quite. Right now as you read this they apparently have two Akula class submarines patrolling our waters. Needless to say this has our people at the Pentagon a little concerned.
For note though the Akula class submarines are not nuclear missile launching platforms (although they can launch cruise missiles). Instead these subs work as anti-vessel ships searching out our navel assets and sinking them should war break out.
According to the article this is the first time the Russians have put submarines off of our coasts in roughly 15 years. You have to hand it to them you can knock the Russians down (at least their government) but you can keep them down.
