    Why Russia only uses frigates why not Destroyers ? Because they are heavy that's why

    Russian Admiral Grigorovich Frigate Holds Drills in Baltic Sea

    The crew of Russia’s Admiral Grigorovich frigate successfully carried out artillery fire exercises, hitting a cruise missile used as a target, according to the Russian Baltic Fleet's spokesman.

    The crew of Russia’s Admiral Grigorovich frigate held a missile-firing exercise as part of state tests in the Baltic Sea, the Russian Baltic Fleet's spokesman said Thursday.

    "The crew of the newest Project 1135.6 Admiral Grigorovich frigate has successfully completed missile firing during the state tests at the Baltic Fleet's maritime target ranges," Capt. 1st Rank Vladimir Matveyev said.

    He added that the crew successfully carried out artillery fire exercises, hitting a cruise missile used as a target.Having passed the state tests, the warship will join Russia's Black Sea Fleet, the spokesman said.

    Project 1135.6 frigates, with a displacement of some 4,000 tons, are designed for anti-ship and anti-submarine warfare as well as for air defense missions, operating both independently or as part of convoys and naval task forces.

    The Admiral Grigorovich frigate will be the first in a series of six frigates of its class being built for the Black Sea Fleet to join the Russian Navy.

    Russia’s large antisubmarine warfare ship enters Red Sea on anti-piracy mission

    The Vice-Admiral Kulakov ship will sail from the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden where it will be performing its missions to fight piracy at sea

    MOSCOW, November 20. /TASS/. The Russian Northern Fleet’s large anti-submarine warfare ship Vice-Admiral Kulakov has passed through the Suez Canal and entered the Red Sea as part of its long-distance mission, Fleet spokesman Captain First Rank Vadim Serga said on Friday.

    "The large anti-submarine warfare ship has large experience of anti-piracy activity and the accomplishment of tasks for providing safe navigation for merchant ships in the Gulf of Aden. The ship successfully performed the relevant missions in 2012," the spokesman said.

    A source in the Northern Fleet Staff told TASS that "the Vice-Admiral Kulakov ship will sail from the Red Sea to the Gulf of Aden where it will be performing its missions to fight piracy at sea."

    The ship crew held exercises on its board on Thursday to practice vessel survivability, and also carried out a training drill for its anti-terror group, during which the marine infantry practiced tasks to inspect a simulated non-compliant vessel and use small arms against notional terrorists.

    The large anti-submarine warfare ship Vice-Admiral Kulakov left for a long-distance mission on October 23, covering a distance of over 5,500 nautical miles during the voyage.

    "In course of field training, artillery battalion of the Novorossiysk separate costal missile and artillery brigade performed firing at surface targets.

    Units of the missile and artillery formation had arrived at the range near the Cape of Iron Horn (Taman Peninsula) and deployed a field camp.

    Crews of 130mm coastal self-propelled artillery complexes Bereg successfully engaged targets located at large distances. After performing assigned tasks, the units returned to their permanent locations. The A-222 Bereg (Russian: Берег; “Coast”) is a Russian 130 mm self-propelled coastal artillery gun, which was developed in the 1980s and first shown to the public in 1993 at an arms fair in Abu Dhabi.



    The Bereg artillery system consists of one command and control vehicle (CPU), a combat support vehicle (MOBD) and up to six weapon systems (SAU). All of them are mounted on 8×8 wheeled all-terrain vehicles providing excellent mobility. The AK-130 gun is mounted on a wheeled MAZ-543 8×8 vehicle and was designed to engage surface ships and fast attack boats as well as ground targets. It is capable of engaging targets within 1–2 minutes and can fire up to 12 shots per minute."

    Joint drills in the SCS

    It's a win-win for both: their SLOCs r better protected, skills maintained, outsiders r kept out, & rivals confronted together. The Pac. Fleet is no stranger there since the Cold & Vietnam Wars! http://rbth.com/international/2016/09/08/russia-could-gain-from-backing-china-in-south-china-sea-disputes-experts_628057 http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/why-russia-chinas-combat-drills-the-south-china-sea-matter-17729?page=show

    As the key element of the annual drill, the Chinese and Russian navies dispatched vessels including missile destroyer, anti-submarine vessels, missile frigates, ship-based helicopters and conventional submarines, among others, official media here reported. The exercises demonstrated the Chinese and Russian navies' capacities in command management, telecommunications coordination, and intelligence and information sharing, Senior Captain Li Xiangdong, who commanded the Chinese warships, told state-run China Daily. Addressing the closing ceremony of the drill, which ran from September 13 to 19, Wang Hai, deputy commander of the Chinese Navy, lauded the exercise as successful and said the activity had achieved the desired aim. Wang said the drill had improved the actual combat capabilities, informationisation and standardisation of the two navies, adding that they will expand practical cooperation and boost communication, state-run Xinhua news agency said. Alexander Fedotenkov, deputy commander of the Russian Navy, said the two navies shared theoretical and practical experience and were engaged in sound collaboration throughout the exercise. Fedotenkov said the two sides will maintain close marine cooperation ties, deal with new challenges and threats, and together safeguard world peace and regional stability. The "Joint Sea 2016" drill featured surface ships, submarines, fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, marines and amphibious armored equipment. http://www.business-standard.com/article/printer-friendly-version?article_id=116091900921_1

    Its first mission would likely be to physically locate underwater cables on the seabed and map their position.

    Once their position is mapped then it would likely drop sensors that do not break the cables but can listen in to the traffic moving through the cables.

    they would leave the sensors in position to collect data for a period and then recover them to examine the data haul...

    Spain and Malta denied access to port to Admiral Kuznetsov carrier group for refueling under NATO pressure. Algeria chosen a middle solution..

    Ship group will not go to Algeria, but will be able to send a tanker that can refuel in the Algerian port. This information was confirmed in the social network Twitter, which the user Babak Taghvaee said that this ship will be the tanker "Sergey Osipov".
    It is not known whether it will happen during the exercise, which reported the Ministry of Defense of Russia, and which will take place not far from the Algerian town of Jijel 3 November, or sooner.

    Russian submarines on their WAY to Syria

    Post  Ned86 on Sun Oct 30, 2016 4:44 pm

    Maybe this is just speculation, but according to this article 3 Russian submarines, 2 nuclear + 1 diesel are on the way to the Mediterranean.

    Apparently, UK submarine detected two Russian nuclear submarines of AKULA class(Gepard and Pantera) which are probably Northern fleet only seaworthy Akula class submarines and another Kilo class submarine heading to the Mediterranean.
    This could be true, because NF has between 6-8 active SSN + 3 active SSGN.

    Personaly, I doubt that Pantera could fire Kalibr missile, but regarding previous reports about Victor III submarine Obninsk(which passed modernization at Nerpa 2014) firing Kalibr missile, we can conclude that Gepard and Pskov submarines, which passed modernization later in 2016, could probably use Kalibr missile too.

    Arresting gear on Kuz is atm not operational after the incident with MiG-29K. So aircraft cant land back on it after they take off.
