The Ministry of Defence has been forced to ask the US for help as it hunts for a suspected Russian submarine believed to be lurking off the coast of Scotland.

Two U.S Navy aircraft were this week drafted in to carry out patrols in the North Atlantic in a bid to bridge the ‘gaping chasm’ in Britain’s anti-submarine capability.

  1. The nuclear submarine fleet of Russia?
    Or a stealth submarine that no one knows how to locate even if it is sitting right off the coastline of Scotland.
    What are we going to do with it if we find it? We are not at war with Russia they are not at war with us.
    The British have a fishing fleet. I suggest they utilize it to put down a net of tracers. Once they latch on to the sub it will be painted because the tracers will broadcast a moving object. The question is can the merchant fleet do something like this without getting caught.
    Scotland has some nasty rock formations off their coastlines. You have to be a fisherman to even know where they are.
