USS Toledo Fast Attack Sub Rocks Ice Exercises!


USS Toledo (SSN-769) surfaces through the ice at Ice Camp Seadragon during Ice Exercise 2020 (ICEX 20). ICEX 2020 is a three-week, biennial exercise that offers the Navy the opportunity to assess its operational readiness in the Arctic and train with other services, partner nations and Allies to increase experience in the region, and maintain regional stability while improving capabilities to operate in the Arctic environment.This is the awe-inspiring moment when U.S. submarine broke through several feet of ice to surface in the Arctic Ocean during a training drill. The ice where the fast-attack nuclear submarine broke through the surface was around 16 inches thick.
