    The construction of the last three Project 11356 frigates is complicated by the loss of Ukrainian gas turbines - AFAIK they haven't decided on what to replace them with. The Project 22350 frigates' M90FRs are being proposed, but no matter what solution they choose (four less powerful engines in unison are another possibility) it'll require a redesign.

    Is the M90 produced in Russia?

    I recall reading in 2006 already that Saturn had a range of naval gas turbine designs, but I'm not sure whether they were ever in production?

    Not yet - Saturn is tasked with producing M90FRs by 2017. They cooperated extensively with the Ukrainians on it so they're not starting from scratch.

    Russian and Very Strong: Crimea's Military a Year Since Reunification

    Less than a year after it unified with Russia, Crimea is home to a full-fledged military grouping and developments continue as the peninsula improves its security.

    Crimea's military modernization has become one of the key events in the development of the country's military in the year since it joined Russia; seven new formations and eight military bases have been added to the Russian military presence on the peninsula, which Russian Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu called a "full-fledged, self sufficient military grouping."

    Ukrainian 'Heritage'

    After Crimea's reunification with Russia, over 9,000 former Ukrainian servicemen and 7,000 Ukrainian civilian personnel joined the Russian military. Over 70 subdivisions of the Ukrainian armed forces voluntarily joined the Russian military, as well as 25 auxiliary vessels and six warships.

    After the March 2014 Crimean referendum, Viktor Chirkov, the commander of the Russian Navy, announced that Crimea had 79 Ukrainian Navy ships, including 25 warships, which Russia was ready to hand over to Ukraine.

    Military machinery prepared for shipment to Ukraine


    Since April 11, 2014, when the missile boat Priluki was handed over, Russia has transferred 43 ships and boats to Ukraine, as well as all Ukrainian military vehicles and also some of its planes and helicopters. However, in mid-June, when Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council suspended its military and technical cooperation agreement with Russia, the process was paused.

    On Monday, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko announced that Ukraine intends to take back the rest of Ukrainian weaponry in Crimea. However, this is not very likely as the Commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, Admiral Aleksandr Vitko, announced in 2014 that the transfer process would not be resumed because the transferred weaponry could be used in the Donbas conflict.

    New Forces

    In September 2014, Defense Minister Shoigu noted that the escalation of the Ukrainian situation, Crimea's reunification with Russia and a growing military presence near Russian borders created "determined corrections" to the Southern Military District's command.


    New equipment arrives at Belbek airfield in Crimea

    In November 2014, 14 multipurpose Su-27SM and Su-30 jets arrived at the Belbek Air Base and the air defense received new S-300PMU and Pantsi-S1 systems.


    Launch of guard ship 'Admiral Essen' in Kaliningrad

    Crimea's re-unification with Russia also led to new developments in the Black Sea Fleet, which Ukraine previously attempted to impede. In 2015 and 2016, the Black Sea Fleet will receive six new Admiral Grigorovich-class frigates, six Project 636 "Varshavianka" diesel submarines, as well as Buyan-M missile boats, most of which will be based in Crimea.

    New Defenses


    New anti-sabotage and defense forces have also buffed up Crimea's security. The Sevastopol Oceanarium, which trained the Ukrainian Navy's bottlenose dolphins joined the Russian Navy, and in November 2014, the Black Sea Fleet conducted exercises with the dolphins, which detected submarines at a depth of over 60 meters.


    Diving training center of Black Sea fleet

    In addition to dolphins, the Black Sea Fleet is creating a center for training frogmen for rescue and counter-sabotage activity. In June 2014, Admiral Vitko announced that the Navy is planning to create a new center for diving specialists, using the Black Sea Fleet Diving School in Sevastopol as a base.

    The Black Sea Fleet's coastal defenses also received new Bal and Bastion anti-ship missile systems, which replaced older versions. In addition, Crimea gained a mountain defense battalion, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) regiment to monitor NATO ships, a radiological-chemical-nuclear defense regiment and a new artillery regiment with 300 units of equipment.

    In December, the Crimean Naval Base in Sevastopol, which Russia ceded to Ukraine in 1996 was rebuilt. In addition, Sevastopol will now handle the repair of Russian ships, including those performing duty in the Mediterranean. However, this is a small part of what was once a system that included submarine bases built into cliffs, and the Black Sea Fleet is scheduled to receive over 86 billion rubles ($1.40 billion) by 2020 to rebuild the system.

    Year old brilliant operation of our army to forcibly ensure the will of the people of the Crimea and its reunification with Russia. How could now looks "fortress and unsinkable aircraft carrier Crimea" in military terms? What has been done to strengthen the defense of the peninsula from any possible threats?

    Crimean bastion year later


    Creating a powerful permanent grouping

    First, the security of the peninsula was provided mainly due had been transferred there battalion tactical group (BTG) from the Southern and Western Brigades military districts, individual batteries and battalions conventional and rocket artillery, air defense squadrons and units of aircraft and reconnaissance units. In Russia during the time of Ukrainian sovereignty over the Crimea region in the army and it was very little. They are not enough, and the reformation of former Ukrainian parts required time.

    Now we can say that the creation of a self-contained group of forces that can perform tasks as a cover, and pose a threat to potential adversaries in peacetime, largely completed. Grouping together with the forces of the Black Sea Fleet is now more than 25 thousand. Man. However, as far as - a military secret.

    Peninsula Russian sailors

    Priority is given to refurbish the Black Sea Fleet. Construction of a series of six NNS 06363 project goes successfully. The first two boats - "Novorossiysk" and "Rostov-on-Don" - is transferred to the Navy. Although to the Black Sea, they have not yet reached - tested in the North. The third boat "Stary Oskol" recently launched for sea trials, expected to launch the fourth. Equipped with the missile system "Caliber-PL", which includes cruise missiles 3M14 (with a range of several thousand kilometers) and anti-3M54 "Turquoise", these subs are low noise, however, is not based in the Crimea. They were placed on the finish building the naval base in Novorossiysk. There they will form a brigade of submarines, which has already formed.

    In Crimea, the same is formed Crimean naval base (HMB). As part of the Sevastopol naval base restored 30th Division of surface ships. The flagship of the Navy missile cruiser "Moskva" this year will be on repairs and upgrades, which will be held in Sevastopol. There were modernized and patrol, "Okay" and "inquisitive". But the former leader of the 90s BPK "Kerch" after a recent fire will not recover - unprofitable to invest in obsolete ships in anticipation of the imminent arrival of new frigates.

    Frigate head in a series of six units for the BSF Project 11356M "Admiral Grigorovich" has not yet handed over the fleet, but this is exactly happens in the spring. The second frigate - "Admiral Essen" - being completed afloat, is not far from the launching and "Admiral Makarov". But with the second three frigates have a problem - Kiev banned Nikolaev enterprise "Zorya-Mashproekt" supply gas turbines for them. Decided to re-equip the ships to the Russian turbine. But deadlines triples can move, though it is officially denied. Expected this year and the first two of the six small missile ships (MRC) of the "Buyan-M".

    It is important that all new ships, frigates and IRAs are equipped with long-range cruise missiles. This seriously increases the potential impact of the fleet of coastal targets.

    Ground forces

    On the basis of the former 36th brigade of coastal defense troops APU Perevalnoye created 126th brigade of coastal defense (126 BrBO), inherited the number of the famous Soviet Red Banner twice Gorlovskij coastal defense division. The brigade is currently rearming with modern equipment models. It is composed of a tank battalion, mechanized infantry and mountain rifle battalions, artillery and rocket divisions and other units.

    Park armament consists of several hundred armored vehicles. Including more than 40 tanks T-72B, more than fifty pieces of artillery, and so on. In the former Ukrainian military town renovated building, barracks, parks, changing educational and material resources, is under construction property, demolished dilapidated buildings. Gornostrelki and 126 scouts BrBO actively trained not only on the Crimean, but also on the North Caucasus mountain ranges. Incidentally, in the conventional mechanized infantry brigades Russian Armed Forces gornostrelkov not. There is clearly taken into account the specifics of the Crimean - the presence of mountains and some isolation from the rest of Russia.

    Formed the 8th Artillery Regiment coastal defense, which includes more than 60 artillery barrel and rocket systems and anti-tank systems. In service with the regiment has 152-mm self-propelled guns "MSTA-S" with ACS guidance and fire and towed howitzer "MSTA-B" MLRS 2B26 - a modernized version of "Castle", long-range 152-mm cannon "Hyacinth-B" and heavy self-propelled anti-tank missiles "Chrysanthemum-C." In terms of power, he is more like a artbrigady and not on the shelf and is designed for fire support covering forces in the border area Perekopa and shoreline protection. The specificity of the Crimea is that with a good artillery support, veiled from the air, even small ground forces could repel any attack.

    Previously stationed in the Crimea 810 brigade of marines Black Sea Fleet (its fighters one of the main characters "polite epic") is also now rearmed and reinforced. On the basis of Ukrainian marine battalions formed 501 th separate battalion of marines. In Crimea, also created from scratch - a team of logistics, engineering-sapper regiment, radiation regiment, battalion and rail portion of the chemical and biological defense. Also, there is information about the formation of the 127th Brigade intelligence in Sevastopol. But it is not very clear what it was about - about the special forces brigade, or about something else.

    In dislotsiruemye in Crimea part actively recruited as contractors from other regions, and most of the Crimea. There are no restrictions on reception at the service of, say, the Crimean Tatars - no. Local reluctant to serve and to "deferral" and contract.

    In fact, in the Crimea created group corps level. Although there is no body control, and combined arms still clearly less than required for a number of pieces of software. So, apparently, in the near future the formation of new parts to continue. Yes and tasks cover the border with Ukraine until resolved is rotated together with units from other regions of unknown numbers.

    Sea under the hood

    Coastal protection except aviation and navy engaged the newly formed coastal missile brigade at Sevastopol. In service it has several divisions of coastal anti-missile systems (SCRC). The first is moving SCRC "Bastion-P" with supersonic missiles operational use "Onyx". They are able to drown even aircraft carrier group in most of the area of ​​the Black Sea.

    For shooting different "nasty stuff" like corvettes and missile boats in the brigade has mobile complexes "Ball" with subsonic ASM "Uranus-U." Restored and former Ukrainian stationary complex "Cliff" missile "Progress". One of two divisions of this interesting system was sacked Ukrainian thieves in uniform, and the second was mothballed and hurt them a little. His and "revived". The system is old, but her range even more than the "Onyx" and warhead even nonnuclear able to drown everything in that one missile hit than an aircraft carrier. Therefore, we can assume that the Black Sea is under our reliable cap.

    Air Shield

    The threat from the air cover peninsula powerful air defenses. They consist of several battalions of S-300PM2 "Favorite" and the battery cover missile and gun systems 96K6 «shell-S", probably belonging to the anti-aircraft missile regiment. Most likely, in the Crimea will appear and S-400. Then the sky will be blocked at high altitudes over the greater part of the Black Sea. Including much of the Turkish coast, coastline Romania and Bulgaria piece, not to mention Ukraine. But the fate of the former Ukrainian battalions of S-300PS is unclear. Ukraine, most likely will not see them have never been. But what about their location on duty in the Crimea conflicting information - whether they are stockpiled, or partially used. In addition, in the Crimea will soon be over the horizon radar surface wave (such work only over the sea) "Sunflower" .He budetkontrolirovat and surface and air situation at any altitude over virtually the entire sea. Also, the BSF has its own anti-aircraft missile regiment, covering the Sevastopol.

    On the "deck of an aircraft carrier Crimea" formed the 27th Air Division mixed 4th Air Force and Air Defense Command JUVO. Once in the Crimea military used 16 airfields, now plan to use until five. But much of the rest and bring to a first-class condition. This is to improve survival and aviagruppirovki for extra strength. While the division includes the 37th regiment in mixed Guards (bombers Su-24M2 and Su-25), the 38th Fighter Regiment in Belbek (Su-27SM and Su-30M2), 39th Helicopter Regiment in Jankoi (combat helicopters Mi-35M, Mi-8AMTSh). In the future, a mixed regiment divided into assault and bombing. This year, he received the latest multi-role fighters Su-30cm. Began to receive them and the 43rd Marine Regiment assault aviation BSF.

    In general, we can say with confidence that the Crimea ever returned to Russia. If someone tries to challenge it - three days will not live.

    Nuclear argument

    There is talk about placement in the Crimea tactical missile systems (PTRC) "Iskander-M". It is possible that during the exercise and unannounced inspections of these PTRC in the Crimea will appear. That's what happened with the long-range bombers Tu-22M3, slung this week during the audit readiness. These aircraft next year may be registered in the Crimea on a permanent basis. But so far no precise evidence of this.

    Separately, it should be said about nuclear "special" combat units (SBCH). After the reunification was officially stated that while no nuclear weapons placed in the Crimea is not planned. Although none of the contract, we do not prohibit. It is now known that the peninsula recreated the territorial body of the 12th Main Directorate of the Russian Defense Ministry, which is engaged in the storage, transport and service SBCH. Of course, this fact does not mean that nuclear weapons on the peninsula will surely be. But the possibilities for this are.

    Russian Jets Force US Navy Destroyer Away From Territorial Waters


    Russian Navy jets forced a US Navy ship into the eastern Black Sea after it was noticed heading into Russia's territorial waters.
    Russian Navy Su-24 jets forced US Navy destroyer USS Ross to go into neutral waters in the Black Sea, a source in Crimea's security forces told RIA Novosti.

    The US Navy ship was noticed heading directly toward Russian waters after leaving the Romanian port of Costanta. The incident comes on the same day as fugitive Georgian ex-leader Mikheil Saakashvili's appointment as governor of Ukraine's Black Sea-bordering Odessa region.

    "The ship's crew acted provocatively and aggressively, which caused alarm among operators of monitoring stations and Black Sea Fleet ships carrying out assignments in the Black Sea. Scrambled Su-24 attack jets demonstrated a readiness to forcibly suppress border violations and defend the country's interest," the source said.
    According to the source, Russian Black Sea Navy ships are constantly monitoring Russian territorial waters and are ready to suppress any violations.

    "It seems that the Americans did not forget the April 2014 incident .
