America was and is built on Free Trade, The Russians believed to control the world, you must stop free trade, thus, the Russians build a vast fleet of diesel submarine to threaten the world. The USN developed the ASW program to counter this threat.
This DVD is about The USN Anti-Submarine Warfare, Fixed-wing and helicopter aircraft, such as the P-3 Orion provide both a sensor and weapons platform as do some helicopters like the SH2a, with Sonobuoys and-or dipping sonar as well as aerial torpedoes. In other cases the helicopter has been used solely for sensing or rocket-delivered torpedoes used as the weapon. Surface ships continue to be a main ASW platform because of their endurance, now having array towed sonars. Submarines are the main ASW platform because of their ability to change depth and their quietness, which aids detection of enemy submarines.
