Why Pilots Love the Sub Hunter

The P-8 Poseidon is America’s frontline defense against adversarial submarines that troll up and down our coastlines and near U.S. Navy vessels.

In the face of growing global threats, there has never been a more important time for advanced defense capabilities like those of the P-8 to protect our global waters. From World War II until now, sub hunters have a long history of enhanced tactics against these underwater threats.

Retired P-2 and P-3 aircraft Anti-submarine Warfare (ASW) commander Captain Charles M. Walker knows firsthand that “the future of naval warfare continues to indicate the enormous threat posed by potential enemy navies. The P-8 Poseidon is the next generation of ASW aircraft necessary to fulfill that urgent need.”

The P-8A Poseidon is versatile, with long-range anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare missiles, as well as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities. As foreign threats increase, the Sub Hunter is increasingly essential for military readiness.
