Description
It's one of the stealthiest, most dangerous underwater warships ever built . . . silent at under five knots, and capable of a massive nuclear warhead punch. It's the weapon every Third World dictator covets. It's the 240-foot long Russian Kilo Class submarine and Russia seems perfectly willing to sell it to anyone - including China.

The U.S. Defense Department knows full well of China's intentions to use submarines to shut the U.S. Carrier Battle Groups out of the Taiwan Strait. And then to reclaim, by military force if necessary, the rich independent island which sits only one hundred miles off her eastern coastline. A strike force of patrolling Kilos could achieve that objective for Beijing. Two of the 10 Kilos have already been delivered.

The President's new National Security Adviser, the irascible Texan Admiral Arnold Morgan, prepares to send the U.S. Navy's most deadly Black Ops hit-squads deep into dark Russian waters. Their mission - to foil delivery of the other eight Kilos - is undertaken under the most crushing code of secrecy. One mistake could literally start World War III. As Moscow brings in an iron cordon of an escort for the submarine deliveries, Commander Boomer Dunning, the Black Ops Captain, races his 7,000-ton nuclear boat beneath the polar ice-cap to head them off.

Kilo Class is a taut techno-thriller of the highest quality, grounded in fact, and ringing with unmistakable authenticity. It is the story of a breathtaking race against time. Peppered with unforgettable characters, it takes the listener into the heart of the control room of a hunter-killer submarine.

Performed by Stephen Lang.

Peppered with unforgettable characters, it takes the listener into the heart of the control room of a hunter-killer submarine. Performed by Stephen Lang., It's one of the stealthiest, most dangerous underwater warships ever built-and it's about to set off World War III. Silent at less than five knots and capable of a massive nuclear warhead punch, it's the 240-foot Russian Kilo Class submarine. Strapped for hard cash, the Russians have produced ten new Kilos for Beijing. The Chinese have already received three of the subs and now the last seven are ready to be delivered-a code-red situation the Pentagon must avert. Armed with a full strike force of Kilos, China can cripple American interests, shatter the balance of power, and successfully achieve the unthinkable in the Pacific Rim. But not if the newly appointed National Security Adviser, wily Texas admiral Arnold Morgan, can stop them-using the navy's deadliest covert forces. In a breathtaking race against time, a team of Navy SEALs penetrates deep inside the remote waters of northern Russia on a daring mission of destruction. And in the icy darkness of the North Atlantic, a brave U.S. captain takes his 7,000-ton nuclear vessel on a hair-raising trip beneath the polar ice cap to head off a powerful Russian cordon determined to transport the Kilos at any cost. Horns locked in a tense game of geomilitary survival, each of the world's three most powerful nations knows that one mistake will mean all-out war., Kilo classPatrick Robinson., Lang, Stephen,1952-|Narrator, MWT11587429, MWT11664623, Made available through hoopla., Midwest, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Nuclear submarines, Read by George Guidall., Read by Stephen Lang., Robinson, Patrick,1939-, Robinson, Patrick,1939-author., Sea stories., Special forces (Military science), Streaming audio., Taiwan, Unabridged., [United States] :Harper Collins Publishers :Made available through hoopla,2004., [United States]:Harper Collins Publishers,1998., computerc, data file, digital, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/hpc_9780060818333_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/hpc_9780062642325_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, qafea04-08-16mn-, qafea09-15-17mn-, spoken wordspw
