    Glad to see MR-800 and MR-710 are going to be replaced with better sensors. Probably adding fixed arrays or a stronger dual-faced AESA radar on the mast. Anyway superior quality targeting and volume search over his previous systems.

    Newer systems will have better performance and also be cheaper to maintain and lighter and likely smaller in terms of components and racks, though antennas might be bigger.

    Regarding artillery support in Syria, the Kirovs only had 130mm guns, so its ability to provide fire support would be very limited. It would need to remain offshore several kms to prevent the local nutters lining her up with conventional land artillery and ATGMs, so its reach inshore would be pathetic.

    An Su-25 on the other hand can accurately deliver much heavier HE payloads to where ever it is needed using guided and unguided rockets and bombs and would be much more flexible.

    With a proper self defence suite it should be safe from MANPADS and as long as it flys above small arms fire it should be able to pick and hit targets at will.

    No need for keeping a small towns worth of Russian Navy personnel offshore for long periods.

    Russia’s Northern Fleet flagship goes to sea first time in 2 years

    The Pyotr Veliky crew has practised the entire range of basic training missions, checked the preparedness of weapons and the ship’s technical capabilities for operations at sea

    MURMANSK, May 16. /TASS/. The heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser Pyotr Veliky, the flagship of Russia’s Northern Fleet, has gone to sea for the first time in two years, the fleet’s press office reported on Monday.

    "This is the first sea practice of the missile cruiser after the vessel’s technical readiness has been restored. The Pyotr Veliky crew has practised the entire range of basic training missions, checked the preparedness of weapons and the ship’s technical capabilities for operations at sea," the press office said.

    The sailors of the Pyotr Veliky and the Sergei Osipov tanker have already held drills at anchorages off Severomorsk in north Russia. The crews held a joint training exercise to replenish supplies at the anchorage. The Pyotr Veliky is also expected to leave the home base in the escort of five coastal-type and ocean mine sweepers.

    "The crew of the heavy missile cruiser will practice organizing its service on the march and check its weapons and technical capabilities in the Barents Sea during several days. Exercises will be held aboard the cruiser to practice the ship’s survivability on the move and at an anchorage, receive helicopters and also carry out anti-submarine warfare and air defense," the press office said.

    The Pyotr Veliky’s voyage will be the first sea practice for recruits and some contract servicemen who joined the cruiser’s crew in 2015 and 2016," the press office sad.

    In 2013-2014, the heavy missile cruiser Pyotr Veliky performed a voyage to the Mediterranean Sea, which lasted over seven months.

    The Pyotr Veliky is the world’s largest nuclear-powered battleship, which is not an aircraft carrier. Its weapons suite comprises Granit anti-ship missiles and the Fort air defense missile system, which is the naval version of the S-300 antiaircraft missile complex.

    A source in the Russian shipbuilding industry earlier told TASS that the Pyotr Veliky should undergo modernization in 2019-2022 to receive new armaments, including Tsirkon hypersonic missiles.

    What of the Lazarev then? I read they did some basic repair work to extend its time in dock, I know the first ship of the series is done for.

    I thought it was a French word that we adopted but kept their spelling Very Happy

    Randevu seems to be the Turkish version.

    Good picture of her in the Norwegian Sea, published today in a Norwegian paper. Clearly cruising south at a very leisurely pace. No risks being taken here!!!
