    The prior thread is http://defenceforumindia.com/forum/...earch-suspected-submarine-near-stockholm.html, and it turns out, it was all a hoax.

    An esteemed commentator had suspected that this could be a hoax, and it turns out, it was. Here is the original quote in the thread based on a conspiracy theory:

    It does not matter if the sub was there or not. Let us assume the sub was there. If that is the case, Swedish navy failed to detect the sub in time or take any action against it.

    This does not paint Swedish navy in very good light.

    "All a hoax" is a conclusion lacking explanation or analysis. We have fake MAYDAY calls in North Carolina all the time and the Coast Guard has to respond.

    In the Swedish incident it might be helpful for Swedes to publicly release recordings of the distress transmission as well as RDF data. Attributing the transmission to a vessel of any kind may not be justified. The "sightings" which ensued are not useful, I would agree.

    Lessons from Sweden's Sub Hunt - USNI News

    The USNI is a long article by a professional for anyone wants to get some significant insight into ASW in the Baltic.

    Sniping at Swedes and parroting RT may be adequate for smaller minds.
