Default At least eight nuclear-powered submarines sailed out from their homeports on the Kola

This story seems to have slipped under the radar last week, did anyone here notice it in the media?

"The aim of the massive operation is to get as far out to the North Atlantic as possible without being discovered by NATO, the intelligence service informs to NRK. Such maneuvers haven’t been seen from the Northern Fleet since the days of the Cold War".

Makes me wish I was still serving and hunting these boats down in my old T Class SSN, those were the days, full article link below from the Barents Observer:-

The story has been discussed on this forum.


The more recent Russian reporting seems to indicate much smaller scale and scope of this exercise.
