    It has been being developed since 2003 as a new primary BSF base since Ukraine had indicated they wouldn't renew the Sevastopol lease which was due to expire in 2017.
    But then they did renew it in 2010 for another 25yrs so it went on backburner.

    Then the coup, secession of Crimea and accession to Russia -> awkward situation of having 2 major bases on a small enclosed sea.

    Use it as a civilian port.

    Why the hell would they use purpose built military base as civilian port?

    Is there some massive downsizing of fleet that they haven't announced yet? I assumed they were trying to rebuild the fleet?

    Because they planed only one.

    Black sea fleet can fit in one port. Even more when smetlivy is removed from service and scrapped.

    Military port are expensive to maintain.

    Clean up your quote boxes and only quote to what you are responding to. Both of you have been here long enough to know better.

    Sorry. But isn't the "quote reply" automatically quoting only the part that the person we quote says and taking offwhat he quoted in its original message ?

    Sometime, rarely actualy, it does that. Maybe its a bug but it would be a nice idea to do so.

    When you click on quote reply it will put the post in a set of quote brackets around each quoted part.

    When it does that just edit the text above your post and remove unneeded posts... it is not hard.

    Each set of brackets will have the name of the person being quoted, so at the top of the message box in this case I replied to PapaDragons post so there is this list of quotes:

    {quote="PapaDragon"}{quote="Isos"}{quote="PapaDragon"}{quote="Isos"}{quote="hoom"}

    Note I changed the square brackets to squiggly brackets so you can see them... in this case I am replying to PDs post and don't need to include the other comments so I leave the {quote="PapaDragon"} at the front and delete everything from there down to the second last {/quote}, which in this case leaves:

    {quote="PapaDragon"}
    Ports are not expensive to maintain, fleet is

    Russia has dumb habbit of putting all eggs in one basket, this is welcome change{/quote}

    at the top of my message to reply... again I use {} so you can see what I am talking about but the actual brackets are the square ones... to see what it looks like with square brackets, look at the top of this message.

    It has been being developed since 2003 as a new primary BSF base since Ukraine had indicated they wouldn't renew the Sevastopol lease which was due to expire in 2017.

    It's actually good to have two bases in that region. After Georgian and Ukrainian crises it had to be stabilized. Nevertheless, it seems that Russians intend to operate 2 subs from Sevastopol, despite assigning all 4 Black sea based to Novorossiysk. It looks like 6 Bykov class corvettes will be the main surface ships of the new base, in addition to minesweppers. Now it's just the question when the heck will the second boat be commisioned. It's been on trials since last year and even participating in actual operations with other ships. Unless there are problems or they have to test additional equipment that is not on the first boat, it's unclear why it takes so long. Back in December they were saying it was delayed just for one month (=till January).

    Belugas and seals too. But I think it was mostly for finding subs and mines, not for destroying anything. I doubt they can make a difference btw russian or nato subs.

    Maybe they want to sell more of these ships for export.
    Turkey has several ex american Oliver perry frigates with more.than 35 years of service that need replacement.
    If they are in good relationship with ukraine, they could get the engine for the ships form.zorya and Russia could build some of these frigates in a relative short time.

    It is for an military exposition. Get some orders from Arab state would be nice for them. The market is huge as most of gulf states have rather small navies and Grigorovitch provides Klub missiles with 300km range that could be interesting for them.

    Gorshkov should have participated too or made visits during her trip.

    Dolphins were trained in anti-saboteur roles, to find mines, recover objects from water and similar.

    Appointed new commander in chief of the Russian Navy

    Russian President Vladimir Putin appointed Nikolai Evmenov, who had been commander of the Northern Fleet since 2016, commander-in-chief of the Navy. He also replaced the commanders of the Black Sea and Northern Fleets. The relevant order of the head of state was read by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu at a conference call on Wednesday, May 8.
