Response to Irish_Dem (Reply #4)

6. It could be they have learned some interesting things.

Like for example, a well-placed operative high in the US government, named Donald, could be in a position to transfer important things like US Naval operational plans, tactical or strategic decision trees, and so on. (Donald would need help, because he doesn't actually know what any of those things are.)

With that information in hand the very next thing the Russians would want to do is go out and test their own responses to those American plans. The undersea world is constantly in a state just short of war, with all sides trying to find, fix, and follow each other, and all sides collecting that data.

So you spit out all your submarines, close them on the American fleets, let 'em know you're there, and then see if the American response corresponds to the predictions their new intelligence allows them to make.
