    More likely the Russians were trying to gather intel on a US hydrophone by stealing it. I’d be surprised if such a classified piece of military hardware wasn’t boobytrapped in some way in order to prevent it’s secrets being revealed by the opposition.

    Hence the reason for the “fire” aboard the Russian sub: more likely the boobytrapped US device initiating a small explosion and possibly fire aboard the sub.

    Each side would know of the other’s actions. The Russian military meeting to decide on what action to take over the bobytrapping of the device and the Americans meeting to decide on what action to take regarding the Russian theft of US military hardware.

    No reports of a missing US sub yet and I’d wager the loss of a sub or any of it’s crew would provoke a rather stern reaction. So possibly that part of the report is false.

    Would be interesting if the part of the Russian report stating the sub was in Russian territorial waters points to the US dropping a listening device in Russian waters, or they are just over-compensating for being in US waters.
