From what i am aware those missions had nothing to do with underwater cables or sonar systems, it was bunch of missions that were used to collect proof of Artic being on continental shelf of Russia which would allow them to pledge claim on its resources.
Now they might, would, could, maybe, what if... did something regarding underwater cables too, but nothing on major scale yet, thats for sure. I expect them to refresh instalations of this type in Baltic first.
So, you think that they maintaining midget deeps sea subs and special purpose nuic subs to plant flags to the seabed?
The seabed mission actually showing that the RU MIL spent a lot of money to maintain this capability .
So, do you have confirmed information about example the Chinese sea island chain monitoring stations?
Or the Chinese monitoring stations?
This stuffs are waaay out of any sight, means that there is next to zero information about them.
If you are talking about Mir-Mir2 and newer derivates, those are mostly used for scientific research of various kinds and assistance in rescue operations i actually think mechanical hands were removed from those.
Underwater cables are mostly being layed by surface cable-laying ships, submersibles are sometimes used for tapping or repair but most of the time its job for cable laying ships.
