U-Boat Killer of WW2 : The Anti-Submarine Warship

The Anti-Submarine Warship

Anti-submarine warfare (ASW, or in older form A/S) is a branch of underwater warfare that uses surface warships, aircraft, or other submarines to find, track and deter, damage, or destroy enemy submarines.

Successful anti-submarine warfare depends on a mix of sensor and weapon technology, training, and experience. Sophisticated sonar equipment for first detecting, then classifying, locating, and tracking the target submarine is a key element of ASW. To destroy submarines, both torpedos and naval mines are used, launched from air, surface, and underwater platforms. ASW also involves protecting friendly ships.
