Report Details How Soviets Would Have Attacked American Carriers
By SOF Editor
A paper from the Naval War College by a former Soviet naval officer has revealed how the Soviets planned to target American aircraft carriers. This look carried some surprising revelations, particularly about the hybrid of influences from Axis powers in World War II.
In the paper, Maksim Y. Tokarev wrote due to an inability to match American carriers “for both economic and political reasons, the Soviet Navy had to create some system that could at least deter the U.S. Navy carrier task forces from conducting strikes against the naval, military, and civilian infrastructure and installations on the Kola and Kamchatka Peninsulas, Sakhalin Island, and the shoreline around the city of Vladivostok.”
