about 15 minutes ago . 2us captain reported that israeli submarine went below operational depth without catastrophic failure and was descending to entrance. Captain requesting further instructions. Standby 30 minutes
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1011531


From my investigation the Israeli Navy has two classes of subarmines: GAL and Dolphin. Both of these are diesel submarines that can theoretically only operate for 30 days between refeuling. Also, for diesel submarines that have to come to periscope depth to utilize the snorkel so they can run their deisel engines to recharge their battery bank. Based of these limitations and the crush depth of these two types of submarines...I don't see how its possible that these particular class submarines have the capability to achieve this. Technically they can't even reach the depth of the BOP for that matter, or be able to hang around for very long because its almost impossible for submarines to just "hover" in one location...generally they spin circles or something to that effect. They can move really slow, but they are always moving, never stationary.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 926204


I can guarantee you that the U.S. and Russia lead the world in the most technilogically advanced submarines. The U.S. was number 1 until Russia was able to create equivilant noise cancelling capabilities that the U.S. had prior-to for many years. I would suspect that Russia, and U.S. have equivelant submarine capabilities at this time. Unless Israel had some super secret squirrel submarine that no one knew about, diesel subs have much more severe limitations than nuclear powered submarines. Nuclear powered subs can technically operate forever underwater until their rods are completely diminished. Diesel subs have to come up to the surface to run their diesel generators to recharge their batteries so they can operate underwater....they cannot run a diesel underwater because it doesn't create enough pressure to overcome sea-pressure and would sink the submarine so they have to come up to periscope depth to raise their snorkel mast to allow the diesel to run to charge their batteries. Diesel submarines run off of battery power underwater. They cannot stay underwater for prolonged periods. Also they are much smaller than nuclear submarines and therfore have less space for food so they can only last as long as they still have food on the boat...but they also need to be refeuled as well. There is no way one of these subs could have made it across the Atlantic and still be operating unless it was refeuled at some point...and will also need to be refueld again at some point.

 Quoting: RenegadeSon


They do hover for missile ops, but not for prolonged periods. Its very difficult to maintain a hover position because you have to control the boat with ballast alone and you need a shit hot "Dive" (diving chief) to be able to maintain a hovering position for very long. Its not standard practice, is situational, and very hard to maintain for prolonged periods.

I have a feeling that this Israeli sub is NOT a Diesel Sub!

In Fact it is known that they have taken ANY weapon they have ever bought and enhanced it to be better. When the US first sold them the F-16 they took the plane apart and completely rebuilt it to fly better than the US planes.

I have a feeling that this sub is something NEVER seen before.

NAVY CHRISTENS NEW GUIDED-MISSILE DESTROYER SAMPSON
Sea Classics, Dec 2006 by Duprey, Susan

The latest Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, Sampson (DDG-102), was christened 16 September during a colorful ceremony at Bath Iron Works, Bath, Maine.

The ship is named in honor of R/Adm. William Thomas Sampson (1840-1902), a Naval hero in the Spanish-American War. After graduating first in his class at the US Naval Academy in 1861, Sampson served in the Civil War, during which he survived a mine explosion in 1865. When the United States declared war against Spain following the sinking of the battleship Maine, Sampson assumed command of the US North Atlantic Squadron with the rank of Rear Admiral. Sailing from Key West, Florida, in 1898, aboard USS New York (CA-2), his squadron established a blockade on the Spanish Fleet in the harbor of Santiago, Cuba When the Spanish fleet attempted escape, it was completely destroyed by Sampson's forces in a running sea battle that lasted five hours. The next day, Sampson sent the now famous message: "The Fleet under my command offers the nation as a Fourth of July present, the whole of Cervera's Fleet!"

Sampson retired as commandant of the Boston Navy Yard in 1902. Three previous ships have carried this name: Torpedo-boat destroyer 63, Somers-class destroyer 394 and Charles F. Adams-class guided-missile destroyer 10.

Senator Susan Collins of Maine delivered the ceremony's principal address. Clara Parsons, great granddaughter of Sampson, served as ship's sponsor. In the time-honored Navy tradition, she broke a bottle of champagne across the bow to formally christen the ship USS Sampson.

Designated DDG-102, Sampson is the 52nd of 62 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers. This highly capable multimission ship can conduct a variety of operations, from peacetime presence and crisis management to sea control and power projection, in support of the national military strategy. Sampson will be capable of fighting air, surface, and subsurface battles simultaneously. The ship contains myriad offensive and defensive weapons designed to support maritime defense needs well into the 21st century.

Commander Philip Roos, born in Leiderdorp, the Netherlands, became the ship's first commanding officer to lead a crew of approximately 292 men and women. The 9200-ton Sampson was built by Bath Iron Works, a General Dynamics company, and is 509.5-ft in length, has a waterline beam of 59-ft, and a navigational draft of 32-ft. Four gas turbine engines will power the ship to speeds in excess of 30-kts.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1011531


NIE = National intelligence estimates

Wiki : [link to en.wikipedia.org]

National Intelligence Estimate: The Terrorist Threat to the US Homeland
[link to www.globalsecurity.org]
"The Estimate, Terrorist Threats to the US Homeland, followed the standard process for producing National Intelligence Estimates (NIEs), including a thorough review of sourcing, in-depth Community coordination, the use of alternative analysis, and review by outside experts. Starting in October 2006, the NIC organized a series of roundtables with IC experts to scope out terms of reference (TOR) for the Estimate. Drafters from throughout the Community contributed to the draft. In May, a draft was submitted to IC officers in advance of a series of coordination meetings that spanned several days. The National Clandestine Service, FBI, and other IC collection officers reviewed the text for the reliability and proper use of the sourcing. As part of the normal coordination process, analysts had the opportunity--and were encouraged--to register “dissents” and provide alternative analysis. Reactions by the two outside experts who read the final product were highlighted in the text. The National Intelligence Board, composed of the heads of the 16 IC agencies and chaired by the ODNI, reviewed and approved the Estimate on 21 June. As with other NIEs, it is being distributed to senior Administration officials and Members of Congress."

I have been reading this whole post with amazement!

But I am a bit lost on a few acronyms.

What is BOA and what is a Twilight Alert?

Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
girlfriend is going of duty, , i glimpsed at a few post and want to Remind you to please follow my post in context between noise. I remind you that the classification of the Israeli submarine is above DED. it is not an "ordinary" submarine. remember when it appeared a twilight alert was issued on strategic assets. this is vector type intelligence which i cant read. good night all.


Thanks for clarifying OP.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1030629



Clarifying what?

This was funny for a while but it's long past the point of being utterly stupid. This character has been stringing you guys along for three weeks now.

There's some very disturbing things happening in the gulf but this fake French Oogie Boogie with you guys throwing everything you can Google into the mix isn't doing anything but adding NOISE to the subject.
