    Russia's not the one with the navy constantly getting trashed by cargo ships. Just saying. Oh and opinions of redditors should be discarded as a general rule.
    Well tbf, r/warcollege is on a much higher level of discussion than /k/ or r/credible defence, where it is pure neocon propaganda 24/7.

    One retarded biased impression westerners have of russian submarines is the alleged reason they have more torpedo tubes than american subs. Their assessment is that Russians are suicidal brutish maniacs who view their nuclear attack subs as expendable and just have more torpedo tubes to have as much burst firepower against carrier battlegroups before theyre detected and destroyed, because the assumption is that soviet subs can't hide because theyre too noisy. Its totally not because having more ready to fire torpedos gives an advantage in dealing with multiple opponents and overwhelming countermeasures Rolling Eyes .

    The other stupid analysis I read is that the soviets designed the VA-111 shkval only to be a suicide nuclear weapon that would just be brutishly fired unguided against carriers, inevitable destroying the soviet sub too.
