    Same is true for the US with roughly 35 operational subs.
    Small number for such a large area as the World Oceans.

    The point ALAMO made is about the fact that Russia already has a new generation of subs with new missiles = a safe deterrence.
    While the Americans are way behind and even their new "boats" will only receive old missiles.

    It is not only that.
    Russia did that in a harsh years of big troubles.
    Advanced, modified, and carried on.
    While keeping the budget and costs, and a fukin' surplus budget.
    It is already being pushed forward, that a modernization of the US nuke arsenal will cost TRILLION plus.
    A country that already has most debts on the planet, is having wet dreams about making a new generation of strategic weapons at the cost of newly emitted debt.
    Someone needs to absorb it.
    Like ... Jurop?
    That was not as much in debt, some serious accumulation of a capital ...?
    This is a cancer.
    Nothing more, nothing less.
    We need chemotherapy.

    Same is true for the US with roughly 35 operational subs. wrote:

    24 SSN Los Angeles and 24 new Virginia class plus 14 Ohio. That's 65 submarines, not 35. In addition, another 10 Virginias are under construction and 1 or 2 Columbia under construction.

    The Yasen-M is way more advanced than the Virginia in terms of weapons systems with the Oniks and Kalibr. Once it gets the Zircon and Kalibr-M the gap will grow even more. The only problem is there still aren't that many of them.

    The US is still operating a huge amount of Cold War era submarine like the Los Angeles class submarines which should be in the scrap heap.

    He said operational. You can assume of each three submarines only one is operational. The others will be undergoing maintenance, returning back to port, or whatever.

    Yes but since russian navy is way smaller than US navy and focuses on its border waters it can't patrol all the oceans.

    When the bubble bursts and they actually try to balance a budget and start trying to pay off some of their debt it will be their foreign bases being closed and their military budget that will likely be sacrificed first.

    US subs are quite safe even if older and noisier.

    Older and noisier means less safe. Having large numbers just means they can lose more and not be at risk of running out any time soon.

    On the opposite the US aand chiwawa states keep getting closer to russian bases and can focus there to wat h for russian navy.

    Not really important in peace time and in war time they will have measures to lose their tails as they go.

    Measures that obviously can't be applied during peace time.

    Russia need to build much more Yasen and a new cheaper SSN.

    That is under development.

    It is already being pushed forward, that a modernization of the US nuke arsenal will cost TRILLION plus.

    Not to mention if they are actually serious about fighting real countries then they need to sort out a land based air defence network that HATO shares and uses together... otherwise they are going to be horribly vulnerable in any conflict with Russia or China.

    This is a cancer.
    Nothing more, nothing less.

    Their presidents only get two terms and during those terms there is no guarantee their party will control Congress or the Senate so actual real meaningful change is unlikely... but they don't even seem to want any change so the chances of it happening are pretty close to zero.

    Jokes aside, every single Russkie Antey operational value equals 2-3 Virginias.
    The only missing thing is a number - they can be in one place only.
    This thing is getting more and more grotesque if you dig deeper.
    Soviet subs were like a Porsche compared to Chevrolet.
    Every single one was faster, could dive deeper, and carried more weapons on board.
    Only with the Seawolf, Muricans manage to close this gap - and that was only because of the end of the SU.
    But they can't afford it, so operate a sub that is a de facto Los Angeles Mod 3. An inexpensive, compromised model made to match the numbers.
    Still being 3x more costly that the equivalent Laughing
    To cover the reality, they have used the regular Anglosaxon stuff - propaganda.
    Pushing forward claims and delusions that could not have been objectively checked and confirmed.
    How do you argue noise level, if you are not a sonar operator who dealt with it?
    How do you argue the effectiveness of the Soviet sonar systems, and computers operating the signals, if you are not - again - a sonar operator?
    My friends were crewmembers of 877 class submarine. Till the late 00s.
    They were the kings of the Baltics and dukes of the Northern Sea.

    885 subs are the kings of modern naval warfare, second to none.
    Nobody in the west has anything to match it.
    The fact that Russkie can produce those in such an effective way and serial is shocking.

    So, more propaganda and Hollywood is needed. Maybe Aquaman 3 will deal with them, using his oversized fork.
