Welcome. This Cold Waters – Flight III Los Angeles Cla*s & VLS launched Guide was written to be helpful to you, and we genuinely hope you do.
This guide contains examples for Flight III Los Angeles Cla*s & VLS launched.
1.4 Example 2 (Flt-III Los Angeles, VLS launched)
In this case, I’ll be using a Flight III Los Angeles-cla*s and launch TLAMs using the VLS tubes.
The Seawolf’s Seawolf has a disadvantage in that the Los Angeles can only dive to 950 feet, while the Seawolf can dive up to 1650 feet. It should be adequate for our purposes, mostly to stay out of detection by MAD and ASW planes. Vanilla has only a 500 ft range.
The VLS also has more restrictive launch parameters than the VLS, as described in the Overview section.
I must stay closer to the surface, increasing the chance of being spotted and attacked by ASW aircraft or helos before I can launch.
In this exercise, I’m loading my VLS tubes with TLAMs to show. Usually I prefer running 10 TLAMs and two TASMs to back up the 6 Harpoon missiles in the torpedo room.
The acoustic environment is not ideal. 75 dB ambient noise and very little way of layers make it difficult to ignore.
As you can see in the two images above, I initially detected 3 targets around me three targets, two north and one southerly. I then landed at 50 ft to scan the radar. This not only highlighted their location but also a*sisted in identifying them instantly. Two targets in the north were identified as either a Jiangwei FF or a Luhu DDG.
Like the previous example, I want both the Jiangwei and the Luhu to sink before I launch my TLAMSs. The Jiangwei is equipped with ASW helos, and missile-launched TRPs, and the Luhu has the speed to bring you down (38kts top speed, compared to 33kts in a 688-cla*s), and is closer to the detection range.
(These images should demonstrate why it is recommended to dogleg your torpedoes or, to fail that, to clear your datum following launch swiftly.
Was able to sink both Jiangwei and Luhu without much difficulty, but just when I was about to launch from my VLS an ASW plane dropped a sonobuoy near the point at which the Jiangwei first noticed my torp.
So I fired a round of 6 or something like that, executed the emergency dive, and then launched my MOSS straight towards the sonobuoy. Then I switched to bearing 122 making sure to direct my screws away from the sonobuoy.
(MOSS working hard, luring the torpedoes from my boat with air-dropped torpedoes)
Then the ASW decided to drop a sonobuoy between the MOSS and my boat and after being at a bearing of 122 for a while , I settle back to a more sloping southerly direction.
(Holy smokes! Look at that torpedoes swarm! MOSS is doing one hell of an job.)
After waiting a few minutes for the air-dropped turpedoes to run out of fuel and self-destruct after which I surfaced back within 80 feet and launched the remaining TLAMs, firing 10 – to 12 – at the northeastern base to add some good measure. Then it`s the usual emergency dive maneuver to help us get out of the way.
(Good that I aimed my TLAMs to the east of the SW base or else the other Luhu might have a chance at air defense practice with targets)
There you have it. This guide will a*sist new captains conduct the TLAM strike and Single Mission 9 specifically.
