Stats for nerds: The slowest ship in TF Explorator (a T-AOE) can cruise at 26 knots and flanks at around 30. Distance to RV point with Seylos is around 1.2 thousand nautical miles (2200+ km). At full speed, the TF can get there in 52-60 hours. For this case, I'm adjusting that to around 72 to account for caution around icey parts. 

Armada light task forces like this one, if not presently engaged can go aweigh and underway in a matter of hours.  Their slowest ship is already a fast-supply ship. In this case, I'm assuming muster and Pre-departure checks will be careful and will add a few hours before they go aweigh.

04 May, 2021 | 2100 Oscar Time

Over the Qing Ming Sea

 

At 2100 Hours Oscar time, a tri-engine aircraft marked with the livery and colour of the Fuersas L'Aire, Special Projects Division took off from Ferrefaaierhafen TRIDENT base in Variota. 8 hours before that, the Iverican quarter of the base received a special air-delivered unmarked cargo container. Iverican air command on the base went dark in the next hours up till flight schedules were suddenly changed.

The tri-engine, a military variant of the S-1011 Trestrell, was prepped and launched with the highest priority. On its belly was the special payload.

Rapidly climbing to its ceiling altitude over the Qingming Sea, several TA-201 stealth fighters that had swept alongside it activated their jammers, filling any observing radar with as much noise as they could. The Trestrell, a special Astronomo variant, reached its zenith, much higher than the ceiling of most aircraft of its span and class. The payload separated and ignited, filling the night sky with a white-hot glow.

Undisturbed by the jammers, the data-link and sat-guided payload streaked along the Kármán line, the thin barrier between air and space. The first stage separated, leaving a pod to correct itself with quick bursts of RCS gas. In a matter of minutes, it would deploy ICARO.

The small microsatellite was equipped with spectral and other imaging sensors. Just after its pod put it on a trajectory to intersect with the space above the Amnalos Sea,  the satellite   completed its separation and cruised at low-eurth orbit.

ICARO trained its austere, blank lenses towards the waves below it and searched.

In the wee hours between 2100 Oscar and 0400 Echo time, an ICARO microsatellite had been sent at the prompting of an anomaly detected by WARD's satellite, PANOPTICON-3. By some fluke, a silhouette had been observed in the Amnolos. Further IMINT suggested that one of the Anglian Navy's SSNs had surfaced briefly in another area of the sea, leading Armada Intelligence to approximate that multiple submarine units were likely present in the area. Referencing updated photos of departures from Plumuth Submarine Yard, intelligence surmised that no. 2 Submarine Squadron, composed of 2 SSNs and 1 SSGN were deployed simultaneously.

Anglian submarines noises were largely enigmas, making them all the more priority targets. Sonar relied on a database of noises to identify a target. An unprofiled sub was as dangerous as it was disorienting for crews.  

The dispatch of the ICARO satellite pinpointed minor surface scars and Bernoulli humps which gave Armada Intelligence the data to approximate where they might be in the next few days. Though the opportunity was too good to pass up, it would be perilous, as Iverican submarines Ruptoro (Shipbreaker) and Resaca (Undertow) would be playing a very silent and extremely risky game of undersea cat-and-mouse with a volatile quantity. A single tin dropping could easily start an international incident.
