Lets see...large pack...big area....against one lone sub...lone sub will be screwed..
The RN does not have the number of nuclear subs to engage the U.S. their subs would be outnumbered. Then your AIP subs can stay near your coast well
just launch RUR-5 ASROC RUM-139 Vertical Launch ASROC (VLA) into the costal waters also attack with our Anti-Submarine Aircrafts. and if your AIP
subs stay there they will be destroyed if they try to go into deeper water out nuclear subs are waiting for them. You can build as many as you want if
all they can do is protect the coastline they aren't going to be destroying enemy subs. Unless Europe has more nuclear subs they wont win the sub
Firstly the RN is not going to fight a straight battle...most likely get the american sub to give chase and bring it to the costal subs..
Also if your bringing aircraft into this and surface fleets then that just adds more to my case....are we going to involve surface fleets and
This is all hypothetical of course, I’m just stating how it might play out. Of course anything can happen but this to me is the most logical thing
that would happen.
Westy your thinking of a large scale submarine on submarine conflict...that doesnt happen...
Imagine dozens of subs running around in the atlantic unable to tell friend from foe...well you can if you really listen but by that time the other
guy is listening and thinking the same thing "is this guy a bad guy?"
