UNC Sources Aircraft @ Submarine Bases

Run Silent, Run Cheap For over a decade, the U.S. Navy has had an internal feud going on over the issue of just how effective non-nuclear submarines would be in wartime. In an attempt to settle the matter, from 2005 to 2007, the United States leased a Swedish sub (Sweden only has five subs in service), and it's crew, to help train American anti-submarine forces. This Swedish boat was a "worst case" scenario, an approach that is preferred for training. The Gotland class Swedish subs involved are small (1,500 tons, 200 feet long) and have a small crew of 25. The Gotland was based in San Diego, along with three dozen civilian technicians to help with maintenance.
For decades, the U.S. Navy has trained against Australian diesel-electric subs, and often came out second. The Gotland has one advantage over the Australian boats, because of its AIP system (which allows it to stay under water, silently, for several weeks at a time). Thus the Gotland is something of a worst case in terms of what American surface ships and submarines might have to face in a future naval war. None of America's most likely naval opponents (China, North Korea or Iran), have AIP boats, but they do have plenty of diesel-electric subs which, in the hands of skilled crews, can be pretty deadly.
It's only a matter of time before China gets lots of AIP boats. Meanwhile, China is rapidly acquiring advanced submarine building capabilities. One new Chinese diesel electric sub design, the Type 39A, or Yuan class, looks just like the Russian Kilo class. In the late 1990s, the Chinese began ordering Russian Kilo class subs, then one of the latest diesel-electric design available. Russia was selling new Kilos for about $200 million each, which is about half the price other Western nations sell similar boats for. The Kilos weigh 2,300 tons (surface displacement), have six torpedo tubes and a crew of 57. They are quiet, and can travel about 700 kilometers under water at a quiet speed of about five kilometers an hour. Kilos carry 18 torpedoes or SS-N-27 anti-ship missiles (with a range of 300 kilometers and launched underwater from the torpedo tubes.) The combination of quietness and cruise missiles makes Kilo very dangerous to American carriers. North Korea and Iran have also bought Kilos.
The Chinese have already built two Yuans, the second one an improvement on the first. These two boats have been at sea to try out the technology that was pilfered from the Russians. A third Yuan is under construction, and it also appears to be a bit different from the first two. The first Yuan appeared to be a copy of the early model Kilo (the model 877), while the second Yuan (referred to as a Type 39B) appeared to copy the late Kilos (model 636). The third Yuan may end up being a further evolution, or Type 39C.
The Type 39, or Song class, also had the teardrop shaped hull, but was based on the predecessor of the Kilo, the Romeo class. The Type 39A was thought to be just an improved Song, but on closer examination, especially by the Russians, it looked like a clone of the Kilos. The Yaun class also have AIP (Air Independent Propulsion), which allows non-nuclear boats to stay underwater for days at a time. China currently has Song class, 12 Kilo class, one Yuan class and 32 Romeo class boats.

Based on the experience with Australian and Swedish subs, the U.S. Navy has been developing new anti-submarine tactics and equipment. In secret, obviously. But now there is another complication. Animal rights groups have succeeded in getting courts to rule that the navy use of their anti-submarine training center near San Diego is illegal, and use of sonar must be limited (because of possible harm to marine animals). The navy keeps fighting the lawsuits, but it now faced with the prospect of abandoning the training site, for one somewhere the lawsuits can't reach. The training site is expensive because it is wired, with under water sensors that enable training or test results to be precisely recorded, and changes made to equipment or tactics. The center also enables sonar operators to get realistic training. There is no opportunity to get trained on the job, as mistakes can get your ship quickly sunk.
Meanwhile, potential enemies build more of their cheaper, and higher quality, diesel-electric boats, and train their crews by having them stalk actual warships (including U.S. ones.) The subs are getting more numerous, while U.S. defenses are limping along because of the sheer technical problems of finding quiet diesel-electric boats in coastal waters, and the inability to train and test enough because of lawsuits.

US B-52 bomber crashes off Guam, 6 crew missing

Every year you ping me the same way; but can you please have a little courtesy Plz?

A U.S. Air Force B-52 with six crew members on board crashed off the island of Guam on Monday, an Air Force spokesman said.
The B-52H Stratofortress was in Guam as part of a four-month rotation.
Search crews have found no survivors, but they are still looking, said Lt. Elizabeth Buendia, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Coast Guard in Guam. They located an oil slick but have not seen any wreckage, she said.
Rescuers with the U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Navy were searching a point in the Pacific Ocean about 30 miles northwest of Guam, a U.S. territory, where the plane is believed to have crashed, said Capt. Joel Stark, spokesman for Andersen Air Force Base.
He had no information on whether anyone survived.
The B-52H Stratofortress was based at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana, and was in Guam as part of a four-month rotation, Stark said.
It went down about 9:45 a.m. local time (7:45 p.m. ET Sunday).
A B-52 from Andersen Air Force Base was scheduled to fly over crowds celebrating Liberation Day, which commemorates the U.S. capture of Guam from Japan in 1944, Stark said.
But it was unclear whether the plane that crashed was the one that had been scheduled to perform the flyover.
In February, a B-2 stealth bomber crashed shortly after takeoff from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam. Two crew members ejected and were in good condition afterward.

Mexico captures submarine loaded with drugs

(it was probably this mother that ran into another nuclear sub without maritime insurance)

A navy plane spotted the craft about 140 miles south of the tourist resort of Huatulco, setting off a three-hour chase, Rear Adm. Hector Mucharraz told Reuters.
The green-colored submarine, carrying what was believed to be cocaine, was about 32 feet long and appeared to be a makeshift or modified vessel.
"The submarine traveled almost at the surface of the sea and when it came up we took advantage," said Capt. Benjamin Mar, a navy spokesman. Special forces troops swooped on the submarine from a helicopter and subdued the crew of four, he said.
The Mexican government is increasingly using the military to fight drug smugglers who move South American cocaine through Mexico and into the United States.
President Felipe Calderon has sent thousands of troops to drug trafficking hot spots since he took office in December, 2006.
Smugglers have moved drugs in Mexico through tunnels under the U.S. border and hidden in canned food and dolls, but the navy said this is the first time it had seen them use a submarine.

InglesAgil Looks at Obamas' New Sponsorship

McCain 4 Jimmie & Montoya
A day with Junior Johnson: Moonshine, ham 'n stories (October 11, 2007)
Driving north along Highway 421 in picturesque Wilkes County, North Carolina, it's quiet, few cars are on the road, and off in the distance, the green pastures and foothills are dotted with farmhouses.
Johnson confident as quest begins for three in a row (January 07, 2008)
Nightmares aside, two-time defending Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson is confident that this season he can equal Cale Yarborough's historic run of three consecutive championships.
This 'slumping' summer not like others for Johnson (August 15, 2007)
Jimmie Johnson knows the numbers, and none of them are the No. 1. He has never won at Michigan International Speedway, despite the fact that he has started the last four races there from a top-10 position on the grid, the longest current streak.
Johnson plans for week of charity events near home (August 25, 2007)
Winning races, a championship and racing side-by-side with other Nextel Cup drivers at more than 200 mph each weekend in front of hundreds of thousands of fans and millions of television viewers are just some of the things that excite Jimmie Johnson.
Johnson: Don't expect a conservative effort for title (November 17, 2007)
The record book shows that Jimmie Johnson clinched his first Nextel Cup championship by placing ninth in the Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway one year ago.
Johnson crashes in final practice, still leads session (September 29, 2007)
Defending Nextel Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson's magical spell over Kansas Speedway continued Saturday, despite a crash in Happy Hour that necessitated going to a backup car.
Champ begins weekend with Jimmie Johnson 150 (April 10, 2008)
Jimmie Johnson will lead the way behind the wheel of another car in Phoenix this weekend, but he won't be going very fast. The two-time defending Cup Series champ will be driving a pace car.
Yarborough wouldn't mind sharing mark with Johnson (February 08, 2008)
He was old enough to begin displaying the talent that would one day make him a champion in NASCAR's top division, but still young enough to be gulled by the power of advertising. Jimmie Johnson was just a kid when he saw his first Hardee's, somewhere on a trip cross-country to race dirt bikes. The tyke burst excitedly into the fast-food restaurant, expecting to see his idol Cale Yarborough tinkering with the No. 28 Hardee's Chevrolet he drove each weekend on television.
Gordon, Johnson remain best of friends, competitors (October 11, 2007)
Their social scenes may be a bit divergent these days -- having a baby will do that -- but Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson are hardly strangers. They still go to dinner, still keep part-time residences in New York, still maintain the friendship they've had since they became teammates at Hendrick Motorsports in 2002. Then their relationship was one of mentor and protégé, their conversations often an exchange of questions and advice. That's not as much the case today, when both drivers are champions on the racetrack and near equals off it.

Jimmie Johnson knows what to expect this week. After all, the driver of the No. 48 Lowe's Chevrolet got to experience the glitz and the glamour of the Big Apple last year when he won his first Nextel Cup Series championship. This year, he's back for more.

Presidential candidate Obama to sponsor Cup car at Pocono race has learned that for the first time in history, a major presidential candidate may sponsor a race car in NASCAR's premier series. According to sources, Barack Obama's campaign is in talks to become the primary sponsor of BAM Racing's No. 49 Sprint Cup car for the Pocono race on August 3. Details of the agreement are expected to be worked out over the coming days.
A BAM spokesperson has revealed the team will hold a press conference July 23 in Miami to reveal the partnership, currently a proposed one-race deal with an option to continue. Obama will be at the briefing, which will be tied to the "Get Out The Vote" campaign message he spread throughout the 2008 primary season.
Racing sources claim one of the options being considered would allow individual campaign donors to get their name on the race car for as little as $100. Obama will also be present for a second private fundraiser on July 30 in Miami, in which team owners Beth Ann and Tony Morgenthau -- staunch Republicans -- will give the Democrat an opportunity to spread his message of change. Randy Moss and Fergie are among the celebrities confirmed to be a part of that fundraiser in support of the candidate and his venture into NASCAR.
According to sources within the sport, the Association for Diversity in Motorsports (AFDIM) was an integral part of bringing the two camps together. Founded in '01, the organization works to heighten awareness of diversity in all forms of motorsports. They hope to tie their efforts in with a "Driving The Vote: Bridging The Gap" campaign to increase voter registration regardless of party affiliation.
While George Bush was prominently featured on Kirk Shelmerdine's No. 72 car in '04, this is the first time a national presidential campaign has actually given its own money to make itself a primary sponsor of a race car. The sport has typically shown itself to be a Republican stronghold, a trend two-time champ Jimmie Johnson recently alluded to when he said he believed John McCain was the candidate of choice for most NASCAR fans this year.
Ken Schrader will drive the entry, a Toyota, at Pocono for BAM, which is outside the top 35 in owner points and must qualify for the race on speed. The team has run just once since Martinsville due to sponsorship concerns, and has just six top-10 finishes in 167 career starts in the Cup series dating back to '02. According to sources, the team will stick with Toyota after making a switch from Dodge back in the spring.
Presidential candidate Barack Obama is negotiating sponsorship of BAM Racing's No. 49 Sprint Cup car for the Pocono race, is reporting.
A BAM spokesperson told the website that a press conference is scheduled for July 23 in Miami to announce the one-race deal for the August 3 event. But there could be an option to continue the sponsorship after that race.
The sponsorship of the car would be tied to Obama's "Get Out The Vote" campaign.
NASCAR is a Republican stronghold, with Jimmie Johnson announcing his endorsement of John McCain earlier this week. BAM owners Beth Ann and Tony Morgenthau also are Republicans, but they are giving Obama a chance to spread his message of change at a private fundraiser July 30 in Miami, writes. New England Patriots receiver Randy Moss (who is starting a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series team) and singer Fergie are confirmed attendees for that event, supporting Obama as a candidate and his venture into NASCAR.
Ken Schrader will drive the No. 49 Toyota at Pocono. One sticking point of the plan is that the team is outside the top 35 in owner points and must qualify for Pocono on speed.
This is the first time a presidential campaign is purchasing a car sponsorship, though in 2004 Kirk Shelmerdine's car featured messages supporting George Bush.
