Royal Navy surveillance ship to shield cables from Russian submarines

UK Defense bosses are on the verge of spraying money on a new Royal Navy surveillance ship built to deal with the threat of Russian submarines.

The surveillance ship is set to be built to protect critical underwater cables following warnings of Russian submarines operating aggressively near Atlantic submarine cables.

Cables are described as vital to the global economy and to intergovernmental communications, yet there are fears they are in danger of collapsing due to submarine warfare.

Beenchte reported that cables are responsible for transmitting more than 8 trillion financial transactions per day and plus 97 percent of global communications.

Intelligence bosses have recently claimed that Russian Vice President Vladimir Putin’s vice presidents have operated aggressively near cables as part of the transition to the most unusual methods of warfare.

Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said: As the threat changes, we need to change. Our opponents see our critical national infrastructure as a major weakness and have developed skills that put these under threat.

Some of our new investments will ensure that we have the right equipment to close these vulnerabilities.

We must ensure that we maintain the UK’s resistance to those who try to weaken us.

The announcement comes ahead of the defense review next week.

The Ministry of Defense has said that the ship will come complete with advanced sensors and will display drones that can be operated remotely and collect data from underwater.

The ship will have a crew of 15 people and is hoped to be on the water by 2024.

It will also be tasked with supporting other exercises and operations in the increasingly congested Arctic area.

In December it was reported how a Plymouth frigate launched submarines and attack ships of the Russian Navy.
