    I guess its possible if START does not get extended or worse more limiting and the number of older attack subs projected to retire...

    Nice video debunking all the usual anti-Russian drivel about the inferiority of Russian submarines and how Russia takes forever to build
    them. In this case the four year construction period (which is serial and not start-up) is trotted out and compared to the 12 year
    construction frame of the first Yassen class submarine. Apples and avocados.

    The delay on the of the Yassen construction was actually a good thing since there was substantial modernization that was not envisaged
    in its 1980s and 1990s design. This included the Kaliber missiles and sonar tech. The hyped Virginia has fewer tubes for the obsolete
    Tomahawk missiles. It also lacks any supersonic and hypersonic missile systems. And the Virginia is supposed to be newer than the Yassen!

    The touted Virginia has twice the size crew of the Yassen but is much smaller. This is a serious issue since the small size of the Virginia makes
    noise damping solutions harder to implement or not at all. Its crew size also requires living space which reduces the available space for
    submarine technology including sound damping.

    The operational depth of the Virginia is 320 meters compared to 520 for the Yassen. This is also a limitation of the Virginia's size. Even
    though it has a maximum dive depth of 500 meters (600 m for the Yeassen), that is a dicey dive depth and not a real tolerance level.

    The final detail is the cost, the Yassen is substantially cheaper because Russia is not diseased with MIC rot like the USA.

    It seems the Yasen is the su 57 of submarines so it's getting the su 57 treatment from the Western media.

    They can't find anything substantive to bash it for. So they say it took too long to build. And hey. You don't have enough of them.

    The Verginia also doesn't have an escape pod.

    No evidence exists that steel was ever used, and even that it was only a very small portion of the steel delivered.

    Don't lie and if you wanna prove me wrong, show me evidence the steel was used otherwise you're talking out your ass.

    I read that article over a year ago.

    That said, no evidence any submarine was affected by what happened.

    I have yet to see evidence it was. Only people like yourself making the claim without any facts behind it.

    on the other hand....I can find plenty of Russian submarine accidents has a result or incompetence.

    Don't lie and if you wanna prove me wrong, show me evidence the steel was used otherwise you're talking out your ass.

    Just ignore the facts SS.... half the high quality steel they delivered to the navy specifically for building submarines was faulty and had its test results faked to suggest it passed tests it clearly failed.

    Half the steel used to make submarines over a period of 20 years or so means it is not just highly likely... it is absolutely certain that that steel was used to make at the very least half of the submarines made during that period... and even more likely that all the submarines that were made during that period had a couple of sheets of this stuff in their outer skin.

    That steel is expensive and they only use it to make submarines.... surface ships don't need pressure testing because when they get to 300m depths no one cares about whether the hull will hold to 500m or 450m...

    The tests specifically were regarding colder water temperature tests, which means very little to most US submarines, but as the Russians open up their northern route for commercial traffic the US navy is going to butt their huge nose in and start heading up there to have a snoop around... but you want to stick your head in the sand and pretend nothing has happened... that is fine... it will be Americas youngest and brightest that will pay the price.

    At first I thought you guys were just voicing dissent in good faith which is always good to cut down on cognitive dissonance. But you and gbu seem to feed on one another and there is a bitter sharpness and unwholesomeness to the posts you guys make. Especially a few days back with how you guys treated garryb. You both have made some great posts so I dont get it. Please cool it.

    Anyways that's all I got to say on the matter and won't reply off topic on this thread again. I will say that the yasenm is turning into my favorite submarine. If they can build like 8 of them like others have said, it would be incredibly fearsome, particularly combined with the upgraded oscars. Russia is slowly building back its native might. The thing I admire most and why I always have a soft spot for ruskie kit is that it frequently peels off from the usual doctrine and theory of western powers and those that emulate it. Russia is making truly novel and powerful weaponry.

    Half of the Virginias built up to 2018 had hull that failed cold temperature tests.

    Means they can't operate in Arctic conditions, or if any affected ship had arctic voyages with surfacing in ice then the given ship is not safe to operate any more, or would have severe restrictions regards of diving deep.

    USA has serious accidents and near miss as well, it is simple luck and very low operation requirements to not to have anything more serious.

    "Half of the Virginias built up to 2018 had hull that  failed cold temperature tests."

    This first line alone shows you don't know what you're talking about and making baseless claims.

    There is more than one submarine metal fabrication plant in the US, so that half number is complete horse shit only repeated by people looking to make shit up.

    ONCE MORE, I have yet to see ONE SHREAD of proof from people like you said metal was used wide-scale or even had any remote effect.

    Another BS claim you made, Virginia do and have operated in the artic and there is no data anything you are saying about deep diving restrictions being true.

    Just false statements form pro-russian fanboys, Show me proof not "well Imma take this fact out of my ass".

    As for accidents sure we have some but they are super rare and if you wanna go there the Russians have lost droves of men far far far far above the US in submarine accidents, so yeah I wouldn't go there.

    Also did you honestly just say "low operational requirements?" Bruh are you serious Razz we operate more submarines then the Russian and operate them all around the globe and we haven't had five percent of the **** ups the Russians have had.

    Get off them drugs buddy they are clearly messing with your head.

    Wow, the drill sergant did a very good job at the USA military on you : )


    So, let star:
    https://news.yahoo.com/feds-company-provided-subpar-steel-203534466.html
    "For decades, the Navy’s leading supplier of high-strength steel for submarines provided subpar metal because one of the company’s longtime employees falsified lab results — putting sailors at greater risk in the event of collisions or other impacts, federal prosecutors said in court filings Monday."

    https://www.defensenews.com/naval/2020/06/15/feds-say-company-provided-subpar-steel-for-us-navy-subs/
    "The criminal complaint said investigators were able to compare internal company records with test results that Thomas certified. The analysis showed that she fabricated the results of 240 productions of steel, representing nearly half of the high-yield steel Bradken produced for Navy submarines — often toughness tests conducted at negative-100 degrees Fahrenheit, the complaint said."

    And finally, a Virginia as surfacing throught the ice:
    https://www.military.com/video/forces/navy/virginia-class-sub-surfaces-arctic/3398996706001

    USA submarine went into underwater mountain, sheer luck to have one front ballast tank left to surface :

    Collision with another USA naval ship , tower severly damaged :

    Any more groundless claim from you ?

    you are very time consuming, your posts are typical Gish gallops, throwing around mountains of low quality , groundless informations.

    Unfortunately it is not available in English. The makers claim they have translated videos somewhere but I have never looked for
    them and they are likely months out of date.

    The video lists off the missile systems the Yassen-M carries and their quantity and this makes the Viriginia look like some sort of joke.
    I don't really see what the Virginia is good for. Maybe sending some Tomahawks at 3rd world targets, but it does not have a design that
    serves its nominal purpose.

    As for the quote above of some morons yammering that there are too few crew on the Yassen. Well, morons are gonna moron.
    If you don't have the money and the tech, you use meat puppets. So the half-size crew on the Russian sub is a strong
    indicator of superior design and technology. Both revolve around the level of automation. Something that the USA with its endless
    chest thumping chauvinism claims to have the monopoly on compared to "those Asiatics".

    1. "There is no allegation in the court documents that any submarine parts failed"

    Assuming some of it was used that article disproves your claim instantly. That article also claims that a test wasn't performed that didn't mean the metal was bad just that a standard test wasn't followed, again NOT A SINGLE ounce of proof any performance was affected produce that proof.

    2. "Bradken produced" Learn English in that yard only again submarine metal is produced in more than one plant. Additional US submarines go through trails to ensure they are up to operational standards before they are commissioned. There was no problem found with any Sub during these standard procedures all navies do. That alone shows there is no problem with the subs.

    But of course, people like yourself wanna parrot and keep up this false narrative because you wanna bash the US. You lying and making shit up with that period.

    3. LOL what a liar, there was a misjudgment on how thick that ice was. So you take one video out of context and try to use that to back up your bs claim? What a clown. Virginia's can go through the ice. But Virginia's aren't Ballistic missiles subs so even then there is no reason for them to surface. So trying to surface under the ice is completely pointless for them.

    4. You are clearly illiterate or completely ignored what I said, one of the two. I never said we haven't had any accidents learn to read, I just said they are rare and have resulted in little loss of life compared to the Russians who have had far more accidents and lost far far far more men in accidents. So you completely ignored what I said to bring this up, again clown.

    Just never ceases to amaze me how detached from reality guys like you are on this website.
