Abstract. The Soviet Navy or VMF (Voyenno-Morskoy Flot) exhibited no great overt interest in ASW prior to the development of American SSBNs. 1 It had no long ocean sea-lanes to protect, and the primary naval concern was to interdict enemy forces approaching the homeland from ocean the early s US naval carrier aircraft were given a nuclear strike capability, and the Soviet Navy.

Cold War maritime rivalry shares at least two similarities with current US–China maritime competition. The first is technology context, which includes nuclear weapons, precision-strike weapons, and situational awareness. The second is support of peacetime foreign policy objectives by.

Purpose To assess the desirability of strategic ASW as a wartime mission of the Navy today and for the foreseeable future. The mission is defined as attacking Russian SSBNs to alter the intercontinental nuclear balance in the favor of the US on behalf of larger purposes.

During the Cold War these strategic purposes included: 1). The Soviet Navy (Russian: Вое́нно-морско́й флот СССР (ВМФ), tr.

Voyénno-morskóy flot SSSR (VMF), lit. 'Military Maritime Fleet of the USSR') was the naval warfare uniform service branch of the Soviet Armed referred to as the Red Fleet (Russian: Красный флот, tr.

Krasnyy flot), the Soviet Navy was a large part of the Soviet Union's strategic. In addition, Dr. Tritten examines, from a Soviet perspective, concepts of deterrence, the strategic goals and missions of the fleet, nuclear targeting policy, the Sea Lines of Communication (SLOC) disruption mission, and the potential for tactical nuclear warfare limited to the sea.

The Soviet authors examine in detail the character of Soviet strategy and methods of conducting a modern war, the role of nuclear weapons and strategic forces, the employment of ground forces, and the functions and problems of air defense and civil defense.

Articles since ihctress that the US Navy's two most important mis-siis are strategic nuclear strikes against the USSR and sinking Soviet SSBNs. Vice. Sulbo wrote, in Moeikey Sbornikhat "American naval doctrine considers antisubmarine warfare, which it must be ready to wage in the interest of antimissile defense of thes the next mission of ihe.

USSR's own strategic submarines are ready to execute orders to launch their missiles. For about two decades the task of insuring that the USSR's own submarines are ready to launch has had pride of place in being listed first in Russian writings,(3) but one recent major naval book, entitled The Navy: Its Role and Prospects for Development and.

Strategic deterrence and nuclear warfighting in theatre proved anchoring missions for the Soviet Navy during the Cold War. In the ss it had become widely accepted that the Soviet Union adopted a “withholding strategy,” as opposed to an offensive strategy to challenge US sea lines of.

Soviet Navy, however—largely because Fleet Admiral of the Soviet Union Sergey Gorshkov, Commander-in-Chief of the Soviet Navy for almost 30 years, wanted to keep what he had built—many of the Soviet Navy’s submarines, surface ships, and auxiliaries had long outlived their usefulness, but were retained to maintain impressive numbers.

During the Cold War, the IC and the Navy clashed regarding the Soviet navy’s strategic priorities and the Community’s interpretations of Soviet plans versus the Atlantic SLOCs prevailed. Today, that would likely be the case with China’s vulnerability to blockade—with possibly further deleterious effects on the Navy’s reputation for.
