U.S. Fleet Forces Command

Winter Is Coming

Moscow has steadily pursued naval expansion, with a focus on undersea capabilities. A modernization program announced in 2011 – the same time Obama stood-down the 2nd Fleet – directed more money toward submarines, producing quieter, more lethal designs. Moscow has brought online or overhauled 13 subs since 2014, now in response Trump is reactivating the 2nd Fleet.
