I am more than happy to post the realities of U.S. Military weaknesses when and where they exist...however this is not the case here.
In the examples by some here as they either pertain to War Games or an Adversarial Countries ability to pop up undetected inside a U.S. Carrier Groups
defensive perimiter....many people here are not taking into account either the reason for such events as well as the conditions.
In the exaple of the War Games...as a friendly nations sub scored hits when playing the agressor....conditions were specifically changed and modified
to allow this nations sub to even have a chance of scoring a hit.
In a REAL Naval Battle...ANY SUBS anywhere near 1000 Miles of a U.S. Carrier Group would be being tracked by U.S. Satellites equiped with Ground and
Ocean penetrating Radar as well as detectable by such U.S. Satellites Gravimetric detection and Magnotometer detection capabilities.
These War Games were specific to allowing U.S. Surface Ships to gain experience in tracking and possibly sinking an advanced Sub. If U.S. Subs been
allowed to be serving an active search and destroy role...that sub would have had NO CHANCE.
U.S. Ocean Floor Listening Mics were also not allowed to be used in this excersize. Thus the game was set as if the U.S. had used all ways to detect,
track and kill such a sub...the war game would ahve been over before it was started.
