Default What makes Russia’s new spy ship Yantar special?



Quote:
The Russian navy is very proud of its new spy ship, the Yantar, which is now doing Argentina a favour by helping to search for a missing submarine.

Argentina has given up trying to rescue the 44 crew aboard the ARA San Juan, which disappeared on 15 November. But it still wants to find the diesel-electric submarine.

Enter the Yantar, officially an oceanographic research vessel, but actually bristling with surveillance equipment, and the mother ship for manned and unmanned deep-sea submersibles.

Spy ship!

Kind of hard to hide what she is in any open waters or harbors ...

I was thinking of the straights of juan de fuca travellled often by SSBN's, not that I live there, but have visited several times when I found this trying to spell the name of:

Same thing that makes Russian hackers special - the passport of the Evill Empire (sarcasm).

We have a bunch of SSBN based mothersubs too, there is a 2nd Yantar class being built, but it will look derpy in comparison:

Aw, we still beat the Ruskies: anyone else remember the Glomar Explorer, a purpose-built ship created by Howard Hughes to secretly lift a sunken USSR sub during the Cold War?

Yea, glomar explorer was cool back in the day.

Today there is a joke that soon GUGI (deep ocean research department of General Staff) would have more assets than the Navy proper.
