Large investments have allowed Russia to build an effective submarine force, which the United States opposed in the Atlantic, says the commander of U.S. Navy in Europe and Africa and head of the joint command of allied forces in Naples, Admiral James Foggo. His statement quotes the press service of the 6th fleet of the USA.
“Activity in the submarine war has increased significantly since I first appeared (in military service — approx. “Of the tape.ru”) in Europe and since the cold war. Naval forces of Russia continues to pump rubles into the underwater realm, and they have a very effective submarine forces,” — said the Admiral.
