China, Russia Dispatch Naval Vessels To Track USS Carl Vinson To Korean Peninsula

Tyler Durden's picture

Video has been released allegedly showing a mass military mobilization in Vladivostok, Russia, just eight miles from the border with North Korea, as the world edges towards war.

As The Express reports, the dramatic move, unconfirmed by the Russian government, was spotted by residents in the border city and posted on social media.

According to the reports, a military convoy of eight surface-to-air missiles, part of Russian Air Defence, were on the move.

The S400 anti-aircraft missiles were moved to Vladivostok, where Vladimir Putin already has a major navy base.

Furthermore, As the following footage shows (beginning at aorund 1:20 below) Chinese military assets are also being moved to the North Korean border...

In addition to military forces, AP reports China and Russia have dispatched intelligence-gathering vessels from their navies to chase the USS Carl Vinson nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, which is heading toward waters near the Korean Peninsula, multiple sources of the Japanese government revealed to The Yomiuri Shimbun.

It appears that both countries aim to probe the movements of the United States, which is showing a stance of not excluding military action against North Korea. The Self-Defense Forces are strengthening warning and surveillance activities in the waters and airspace around the area, according to the sources.

The aircraft carrier strike group, composed of the Carl Vinson at its core with guided-missile destroyers and other vessels, is understood to be around the East China Sea and heading north toward waters near the Korean Peninsula.

The dispatch of the intelligence-gathering vessels appears to be partly aimed at sending a warning signal to the United States.

Yonhap reports that the USS Carl Vinson is expected to reach South Korea's east coast by April 25th.

it was russia and stalin that liberlized mao from the japs and helped him defeat chiang kai shek

so i'd say there's alot of commarodary between the two, having the same common denominator regarding ussa hegemony

>S-400's in Vladivostok

This is to shoot down any North Korean missiles that might be launched, not just at Russia, but also at any other target.

Three superpowers are working together here. Were that not the case, it would be a lot more than a couple of ships shadowing the US fleet.

Watch a NORK 2 man pedal sub surface right smack dab in the middle if the fleet, the head NORK opens the hatch, pops up, drops trow and cuts a bigge, seals the hatch, submerges and Bob's your Uncle Kim.

So It Goes's picture

NK subs are dead meat.

Diesel powered and easily tracked.

You can bet they are being shadowed and targeted should anything go down.

I would not want to be a crew member of any North Korean submarine at this moment.

Russia and China supporting USA? NOT, this is just making sure trump is not that stupid. Don't underestimate North Korea. They can blow shit up, South Korea and Japan. Then it will be all out war. Trump will do something what he is good at, loosing!

IF US naval vessels fire cruise missiles at North Korea

the missiles will also be traveling towards Russia and China.

What would we do if Russia said they were firing missiles at Mexico

but they were coming towards the US border?

shoot them down . . . 

Mr.Sono's picture

You think that's it? Let's say, Mexico is getting invaded by cccp....... you can't just sit there and hope for best outcome.

Maybe we can ask Putin to repeal Obamacare for us since Trump and the Repugnicans seem unable despite control of both houses and the executive branch.

AVmaster's picture

Maybe you should've bombed some isis guys with 59 of them uber expensive bottle rockets instead of an ally of putin...


That way you would've gotten more of the "oh well" factor from china and putin during ur march into NK....

ps NOR, 2 party tyranny. o-care here to stay. the fascist corp/deep state keeps the spice flowing.

fearfull mericans just keep paying for this "entitled benifit". emplolyers are but a conduit.

employers are corporations joined loosely in the deep state. why would they fight for justice? name one government agency that went away? not. all just a sharade.

conclusion:fuk em all..

NK is not mexico. Its the northern part of korea and it should be reunited with south.

Fuck china for keeping NK under their arms for so long!

Russia better not be the reason he sent ships there.

The Russian missile cruiser Varyag paid a courtesy visit to Busan on April 12. It has P-500 Basalt anti-ship missiles and S-300 Favorit anti-aircraft missiles. Poke that Bear!

You apparently don't know jack about submarines...

(HINT: there ARE NO "Diesel" submarines. What there are is "Diesel-Electric" submarines.)

shamus001's picture

And whats your point?  I'm a Maritime Chief Engineer, and operated many diesel electric vessels, the mains are STILL EXTREMELY NOISY- Perhapse the propulsion is some Z-drive with control pitch propulsion, but sonar will pick up the vibrations from that engine room.... especially working with todays standards of detection.

Maritime Chief Engineer - isn't that just a fancy name for Head Mechanic?


SweetDougisaTwat's picture

It's a fancy name for the guy who fucked your mother up her ass.  He could be your father, you shit-for-brains.  But, then, a lot of guys are suspect where you and your mother are concerned . . .

I enjoy early morning smoting with historical context ...

Huge points here on style !

flapdoodle's picture

I worked in the submarine business. The Diesel electrics were the ones that won the war games. Nuclear subs are MUCH noiser (typically the reactor coolant pumps, which you can't really ever turn off, unlike your electrics).

researchfix's picture

An why should the NK subs move at all? They are already in place. Had a sort of shorter approach, it´s their waters.

tmosley's picture

If you have seen the sensory capabilities of AIs, you would be a total madman to be on a submarine crew at all, absent the deployment of metamaterias coatings that render the ship invisible to sonar.

Assuming US boats have been upgraded with such AI functionality, they would have passive visibility equivalent to a cloudy morning with a light fog. With active pinging, they would be able to see over the horizon. Such systems are now TRIVIAL to implement. If we don't have them, it is a testament to government inefficiency.

DEMIZEN's picture

when shit will get completely out of control, the subs will probably be the safest place to ride out the first waves of all out war.. Ships will go down first.


1. com and nav satellites

2. ships

3. airforce

4. the rest of missile platforms if they can be found.

.. and then the groundwork. laying sea mines, diggin tunnels, trenches etc.. restart production etc.

general ambivalent's picture

Imagine that, a glowtard also believes in Manifest AI Destiny.

DEMIZEN's picture

active sonars have a very low range and are easy to detect. even then, the dept is usally off.  This is not " Das fucking Boot" subs dont have to stall or surface to launch s2s, they have their defenses and jamming capabilities.  when the shit is all out the enviroment is loud by default.

tmosley's picture

Yes, and the sky is bright, but our eyes are designed to see without even having to produce their own illumination. When you have an artificial brain that is designed to "see" sound, you can get extremely high resolution visualizations in real time. This isn't a guy listening with headphones.

BarkingCat's picture

Oh my fucking dog. This AI bullshit again.

tmosley's picture

Ask your phone to explain it to you, grampa.

Not if there are lots of them which there are.

and btw wtf is tracked?

Stinkytofu's picture


then how did they sneak in during naval exercises and

sink that south korean frigate?


....or did they?

Volkodav's picture

      never count out submarine

      there are diesel-electric operate intervals more quiet than many nuke subs

russia nor does china need shadow other than sonar the inlet for subs

they both are on top physically of the korean peninsula: china on the east border and russa on the western border of nk

 Somebody may want to relay the message to McCain & Graham that the worlds changed. America's not king of hill anymore ...

Justin Case's picture

McCain & Graham should be right on the bow of the ship holding hands.

What do you think the odds are of that ever happening?

Mr.Sono's picture

After they done blowing each other, I would say chances are pretty good.

Thanks for the graphic asshole!

Odds are very low. Lady Graham would much rather be amongst all the seamen.

The N. Koreans wouldn't shoot at the Russians, who treat them like human beings. A lot of N. koreans work in Russia. Those S-400s are aimed at us.

Here's an interesting point of view on N. Korean crisis:

And some background on the anti-nuke accords we made in the 90s with N Korea:

Quite eye-opening.

tmosley's picture

Your information is very dated.

And I said they weren't just there to defend against an attack from NoKo, they are there to ensure that no ICBMs from NoKo get out. Russia isn't going to risk a nuclear fucking war with us over North Korea, and you'd have to be thinking with your throbbing doomboner to think they would.

lurker since 2012's picture

Says you! Why do you think you know what Russia will do, besides just plain assertion.

BarkingCat's picture

His AI told him.

I am beginning to think that in his case AI stands for Anus Inspector.

tmosley's picture

You assert that Russia is willing to initiate a nuclear war in defense of North Korea. I think you need to back that up with some data.

Russia has failed to start nuclear wars over far, far worse US aggression, including those directed almost straight at them. This is tangential to them at best.
