Here is footage showing a Russian Navy submarine attacking ISIS positions in Raqqa, Syria by launching missiles from the submarine itself. The Kalibr cruise missiles were launched from the Rostov-on-Don submarine, a Kilo-class diesel electric submarine, in the Mediterranean. It’s the first time Russia had launched…
A suspect on the run from Police near Perth, Western Australia, finally figured out how to get away from the cops by using nothing but his sheer, massive brainpower. He came up with an idea that clearly no one had ever thought of before. He’d just drive straight into the ocean.
Yachts are for chumps. People who really know how to spend their money get submersible yachts from Migaloo, a mysterious company that offers five different models of underwater palaces. But true evil villains just go for the Migaloo’s crown jewel: Kokomo Ailand.
A Byzantine shipwreck from roughly 1,000 years ago was discovered on the floor of the Black Sea in May, which was apparently so fascinating to Russian President Vladimir Putin that he decided to check it out for himself. (You can do stuff like that when you’re Putin.)
They don’t call it the ‘Silent Service’ for nothing. The world of U.S. Navy submarine operations may be shadowy, but it’s full of rich culture, honed over years of stuffing bus loads of sailors into a steel tubes for months on end. Out of this unique environment, some colorful terminology has sprung.
What goes on with the submarines that launch nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles is one of the most tightly guarded secrets that any country can have. So with that in mind, one British submariner just uploaded a load of alarming information onto the Internet. And this dirty laundry is unfortunately soiled with…
We tend to go on and on about random exercises here on Foxtrot Alpha, but this time, it’s different. Operation Dynamic Mongoose is the biggest anti-submarine exercise NATO has ever conducted, and it reflects both deep-seated fears and the effort to catch up on years of management mistakes.
All Royal Navy Trafalgar-class submarines have specially strengthened hulls and conning towers for breaking through massive polar icepacks. Yet for some reason, HMS Talent returned to port sporting a massive dent in its forehead, and the British Ministry of Defence is blaming it on “ice.” Okay.
Paul Allen was an original founder of Microsoft, started a space launch company and now owns the Seattle Seahawks, as well as one of the world's largest yachts, which comes with its own submarine. With a long list of accomplishments under his belt, he did the one thing you would do. Go looking for sunken battleships.
Sweden started making a big fuss about a month ago, saying that something was under the water just off its coast. It wasn't supposed to be, and they were pissed. After launching a massive hunt, they came up with nothing, but Sweden says this picture proves they knew what they were talking about all along.
Looks like North Korea's engineers have been hard at work brushing up on their obsolete Soviet-era technology. Because after acquiring 10 discontinued Soviet subs, everyone's favorite little warmongering-dictatorship-that-could has finally rendered the outdated ballistic vessels seaworthy—and it only took them 21…
After five years of construction, the newest submarine in the US fleet is ready to set sail. But this Virginia-class sub is not like the others—it's far more deadly and way less expensive to operate.
Russian bombers have penetrated US airspace 16 times in the last TEN days. At the same time, Russia's Navy says it chased a submarine out of its 'boundary waters' in the Barents Sea, near the home of its powerful Northern Fleet.
Here's North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, looking like the happiest boy in the world in his Romeo-class submarine. North Korea was assembling these noisy boats from kits up until as late as 1995, but the truth of the matter is, the Romeo-class design is pure 1950s Soviet vintage.
In a shocking reminder of how close the Second World War came to America, a German U-boat has been discovered by marine archaeologists working off the shores of Texas in the Gulf of Mexico.
Russia isn't the only nation launching a nuclear sub hunter after two decades of development. The UK recently rolled the third of seven £1 billion Astute Class nuclear submarines, the HMS Artful, out of its cavernous dry dock for a year of demanding sea trials and a quarter century of service beneath the seas.
Every year the Navy tests out its submarine crews in the Arctic. They call it ICEX and it looks amazing.
After more than two decades in development, Russia has finally inducted its newest submarine into the Northern Fleet—a massive nuclear-powered submarine hunter christened the Severodvinsk. Better late than never, I guess.
From Foxtrot Alpha: The US Navy's submarine bases are some of the most high-security installations in the world, but one of their most important and shadowy submarine outposts is not in the middle of an ocean, but rather in a lake in landlocked Idaho.
