Barents Sea.

This is coolbert:

Bumper tag under the ocean.

From Harry at Sharkhunters and Uncle Jimmy:

"MOSCOW, August 9 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's Northern Fleet's anti-submarine forces have detected and forced out a US submarine from Russian boundary waters, a high-ranking source in Russia's Navy told RIA Novosti Saturday."

"'On August 7, 2014, the patrol forces of the Northern Fleet detected a foreign submarine, supposedly a US Navy VIRGINIA-class one, in the Barents Sea. A seaborne anti-submarine group, as well as an anti-submarine airplane Il-38, was sent to the region to search and track it down,' the source said.

"The Russian navy forced the submarine out of Russian waters after a 27-minute contact."

Virginia class submarines at a level of technology beyond both the Los Angeles and Seawolf class, much more quiet.

NOT so absolutely quiet if this incident actually the case.
