Military analyst warns: U.S. needs new attack craft

Nov. 3, 2015

U.S. defense officials said a Chinese attack submarine tracked and stalked the USS Ronald Reagan, one of the Navy’s foremost aircraft carriers, during a recent encounter in waters near Japan.

The stalking represents the closest that one of China’s Army Navy submarines has come to an American carrier in nine years, the officials said, the Washington Free Beacon reported. And according to one military analyst, the encounter only shows how much America’s Navy needs more submarines with escort capabilities to protect and shield other craft, as well as funding to replace and repair attack submarines.

“The importance of our aircraft carriers was just demonstrated in the South China Sea,” said Rick Fisher, a Chinese military affairs analyst, in reference to the late October encounter that only came to media light this week. Specifically, on October 24, the USS Ronald Reagan was sailing from its home port to the Sea of Japan when it was tailed by the Chinese submarine.
