The United States enjoyed technical superiority in terms of sonar, signal processing and submarine quieting for the majority of the Cold War.

These dramatic advances were in no small part the result of the Walker spy ring, and the Toshiba-Kongsberg affair. After decades of being ‘one step behind’ in terms of operational freedom, in the spring of 1987 Admiral Chernavin initiated Operation Atrina, known afterwards in US naval intelligence circles as ‘The Great Soviet Sub Suckerpunch’ – and some of the finest Soviet submarines ever assembled surged out on the Atlantic.
