Military powers test each other all the time. Even friendly nations spy on their allies, as was proven by revelations that the NSA and GCHQ have been listening in on European leaders both at summits and in their own countries.

There are plenty of examples of Russia poking around and testing military responses, and plenty of examples of the US, UK and NATO doing the same. This is not unusual.

The Russian flights "near" other countries airspace is the same thing, it's nothing more than testing response times, testing out new equipment, even seeing what the public and media responses will be - which crosses over from hardware to intelligence.

However, it's an entirely different thing when a plane actually encroaches into the airspace of another country, as Russia has done recently with Sweden. When the military of another nation actually invades your airspace you better make sure you have an appropriate response, which is why Sweden scrambled fighters to escort them out. Make no mistake about this, Russia is the aggressor here.

Now, given that Russia HAS annexed Crimea, HAS been PROVEN to be involved in destabilizing Eastern Ukraine (whatever people here want to claim about US involvement, the evidence speaks for itself and no claims of "but the US did THIS" can excuse it) and has been accused of murdering hundreds of people by supplying weapons used to shoot down a passenger plane, Sweden has every reason to be concerned, and every right to be searching its own waters for whoever it believes might be there.

No one here knows half of what is actually going on, and what might actually be misinformation released by Sweden, but given the information we have and what we are expected to believe, Sweden is perfectly justified, it's not paranoia, it's national defense.

I knew a guy that worked for the government. We talked for a bit about a Russian sub that actually snuck into a US harbor. I dont think this was reported. It was testing some new stealth he said that everyone was really interested in.

I dont know if thats true but it makes sense. Maybe even some cold war tech that was lost on a back shelf, dusted off and completed...

I have been trying to follow this story for the past couple days. It kind of has that "Hunt for Red October" vibe to it. It will be interesting if we ever hear an outcome of this one, or if it will be one of those stories that just disappears.

Already a bunch of posts about this subject , could the Mods do something about it , people want to share information , so if needed i put my information in multiple threads.

And it's not about chasing subs anymore, either. Perhaps the name of the thread could be changed since it's the same topic that has just evolved.

Like 'The Baltic Sea Military Operation Thread' or something?

But försvaret (Swedish defense) will probably get the money they want now for new equipment.

Yes this is an interesting fact - Sweden was supposedly cutting their military budget, while Norway increased just a bit. They might be willing to stage /or exaggerate something to get public support.

As I said its reminiscent of the cold war when america sent a sub to sweden to try to coerce them to join nato...

Unrelated, I think, but there was a Russian fuel tanker adrift off the coast of BC
Vancouver Sun article
wouldnt seem suspicious except for all the incidents recently

Thanks for the heads up , Sweden is North of Las Palmas by quite some miles
i wonder why they aren't going to Las Palmas.

If it is possible to detect Submersibles , maybe the russians are using it to gather information about NATO Subs or other nations Subs , i can imagine using a civilian vessel in this situation since it is not as obvious as a Naval vessel.

I shared the information about the equipment on board , since dept research is not my area of expertise i dont know if this equipment is able to detect submarines , maybe the Navy Vets can shed light on this.

still nothing on Vessel finder , out of range or turned off :

And so it begins in Norway too.. (in norwegian)

Unknown sub spotted, and taped, right outside Stord at the west coast of Norway. Will be interesting to see what comes of this. Looks like an Ula sub to me, thats what the Norwegian navy runs. This isn`t that far from Haakonsvern, the main naval base of the Norwegian navy.

Regardless, the debate on the sorry state of the Norwegian armed forces will only gain traction from this.

I did dismiss as hysteria, until I saw the stealth sub ... but I am certain it's manipulation of the public, to make the public "scared" of Russians.

It's McCarthy era II.

You do know McCarthy turned out to be right don't you?

You throw up every day? Are you bulimic?

What does throwing up have to do with ebola? I thought bleeding from your eyes, ears, anus, nose, and having bloody vomit/diarrhea was the big tell they had ebola?

a reply to: Hijinx
Nope, much, much worse.

Im not sure if ebola makes them throw up more or something, but I believe so because there was that incident where a suspicious woman threw up in Washington (I believe it was), and people freaked out. It was on ATS recently, suspected she did it on purpose to cause panic, as she was in pandemic insurance.

Hmmm, interesting. I still don't understand the ebola hype. Don't come in contact with the individuals bodily fluids and you are fine.

I can not remember being so close to anyone in public that i ingested their bodily fluids, so maybe I'm the anomaly in the western world. I just don't get the hysteria, this isn't like the cold or flu it's a virus that spreads very quickly in the third world due to cramp living spaces, no proper waste management, no water treatment and no access to first world healthcare.

One member gets sick the entire family is sleeping in the exact same space, sharing eating utensils, that infected individuals bodily excretions get into water supplies and others around them in turn get sick from those sources of exposure.

Alas, we are derailing a thread about Russian submarines and the swedes. To which I honestly don't have much to add at this time.

a reply to: Hijinx

ahahah oh you should try swapping body fluids in public some time!
Yeah its hype and panic as usual, like 2012 and y2k, swine flu and sars, etc. Panic sells.

Its an interesting relation to this topic though, because as I mentioned before in the cold war US sent a submarine into sweden to convince them it was Russian, trying to cause a panic to get them to join NATO. Panic for a desired outcome

Ok some interesting info here. Four weeks ago I was talking with someone I know who told me that friends of his son were fishing off the east coast of Florida about 30 miles out. They witnessed a Russian sub surface and reported it when they returned. About a week later my teenage kids were at the Ft. Pierce Jetty with friends around 2am hanging out. They witnessed a battle out at sea taking place and two military personnel ran past them in fatigues to the end of the jetty to watch what was happening. Could this possibly be an damage sub unable to return to base? That's my two cents for what it's worth.
