While the P-8 Poseidon “sub hunter” is monitoring the oceans, sometimes foreign jets intercept the plane during its missions.
Most engagements are standard. Yet, America’s adversaries still conduct unsafe flight maneuvers that get too close for comfort.
The sub hunter prepares for these types of engagements by training with American fighters like the F/A-18. This helps pilots identify different types of intercepts, as well as ensure they know what to do in these situations.
In the face of growing threats, the United States Navy is ready with the P-8 around the world. The sub hunter provides complete maritime domain awareness and ensures global maritime security.
