    Russian warships will be equipped with NATO navigation and communications systems to improve coordination in anti-piracy missions around the world, Chief of the Russian General Staff Nikolai Makarov said on Wednesday.

    The issue has been discussed during a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council in Brussels.

    “We decided to install standard NATO navigation and communications systems on our warships,” Makarov said.

    NATO warships have been patrolling the pirate-infested waters off the Somali coast since 2008, as part of Operation Ocean Shield. NATO has recently extended its mission in the Gulf of Aden and adjacent areas until 2014.

    Russia joined the international anti-piracy mission in the region in 2008. Russian warships have successfully escorted more than 130 commercial vessels from various countries since then.

    Task forces from the Russian Navy, usually led by Udaloy class destroyers, operate in the area on a rotating basis.

    A task force from Russia’s Northern Fleet, led by the Udaloy class destroyer Vice Admiral Kulakov, will arrive in the Gulf of Aden in the beginning of May to join the anti-piracy mission.

    Interesting... I suspect it will be like navy vessels getting communications systems compatible with civilian aviation and surface vessels so in addition to talking to each other they can talk to civilian or in this case NATO platforms of all types.

    I rather suspect NATO navigation systems aren't built around GLONASS so these will likely be in addition to Russian systems.

    Transas make some state of the art stuff in terms of comms and nav.

    Destroyer Admiral Chabanenko Got Ready for Pomor 2012 Exercise

    Northern Fleet (NF) destroyer Admiral Chabanenko has finished sea phase of preparations for the Pomor 2012 Russian-Norwegian naval exercise.

    Through the last week in the Barents Sea, the ship's crew practiced some episodes of the coming joint exercise. In particular, search operations with marines, interception of small-size fast-speed craft, detention and examination of a ship suspected of piracy, etc. Aircrews of Ka-27PS helicopters improved their deck landing skills and practiced search and rescue of sailors in distress.

    When at sea, destroyer Admiral Chabanenko in cooperation with antisubmarine airplanes Il-38 and deck-based fighters Su-33 performed air defense tasks, found and destroyed "enemy" submarine.

    The Pomor exercise is the key element of cooperation between Russia and Norway; it contributes to development of good-neighborly relations and keeps the two navies ready to conduct joint naval operations in economically important regions of the Arctic Ocean.

    The exercise is conducted on the regular basis since 2010. This year it will take place in the Barents and Norwegian seas in May 11-16.

    altic Fleet (BF) frigate Yaroslav Mudry is going to participate in the FRUKUS-2012 joint naval exercise to be held since June 24 till July 2 for the first time in the Baltic Sea. Except for Yaroslav Mudry, the exercise will be attended by warships of Great Britain, France, and the US.

    Basic planning conference of the FRUKUS exercise was recently held in St. Petersburg. Apart from the Russian delegation, the conference was attended by defense attachés of the US, Great Britain, and France, as well as commanding officers of participating ships.

    According to chief of BF Combat Training Dept Capt 1 rank Sergei Volkov heading the Russian delegation, the parties agreed upon general concept of the exercise. For one, its sea phase will be held in June 27-30 and comprise episodes of repelling attacks of small-size vessels and aircraft, joint maneuvering within tactical groups, rendering assistance to a distressed ship, searching operations, and gun firing drills.

    Besides, the parties coordinated organizational issues including calls at ports of Baltiysk and St. Petersburg.

    It is planned that ship commanding officers will convene in May 21-23 in the Central Naval Museum (St. Petersburg) to hold final planning conference.

    Destroyer Vice Admiral Kulakov Started Escorting First Convoy

    Northern Fleet (NF) destroyer Vice Admiral Kulakov on May 15 started her anti-piracy mission in the Gulf of Aden by escorting the first merchant convoy.

    The convoy was formed at assigned point in southern part of the Red Sea. It consists of four merchant vessels flying flags of Marshall Islands, Panama, and Turkey.

    Crew of the Russian destroyer will have to escort foreign ships through the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden to the destination point in the western part of the Arabian Sea.

    The trip is going to be finished on Friday. Then the Russian warship will escort another convoy backwards.

    NF destroyer Vice Admiral Kulakov left the fleet's main base Severomorsk on Apr 6. Through her cruise, the ship has covered about 6,000 nautical miles. In Apr 2012, destroyer Vice Admiral Kulakov paid a formal call at port of Souda (Greece) where the ship's officers and mariners had an opportunity to visit NATO's international naval operations training center. The NF mariners exchanged counter-piracy experience with their foreign colleagues and held a number of practical drills. Leading the Russian Navy's task unit formed in the Mediterranean Sea, destroyer Vice Admiral Kulakov on Apr 29 passed the Suez Canal and entered the Red Sea, reports Northern Fleet's press service.

    Russia Gets New Deep-Sea Research Ship

    A new ship for deep-sea research will enter service with the Russian Navy later this month, officials said on Wednesday.

    The Seliger has set sail for the Azov port of Timryuk, where it will be based, its maker said.

    The Navy was initially scheduled to receive the vessel earlier this month, but bureacratic hurdles delayed the handover, said a spokesman for the Yantar Shipyard in Russia's Baltic enclave of Kaliningrad.

    The ship will be used for deep-sea research, search and rescue operations and for equipment tests.

    Russian naval forces have taken part this week in the international RIMPAC naval exercise for the first time, successfully completing an anti-piracy exercise in the Pacific alongside U.S. forces, a Russian fleet spokesman said on Thursday.

    “The Russian Navy and U.S. Navy received orders to air-land their combat groups on board their ships during the drills," Capt. 1st Rank Roman Martov said. "The exercises started when the U.S. commandos landed from the helicopter on the Russian Fotiy Krylov rescue ship. Russian marines then carried out a landing on the U.S. warship Port Royal. Both operations were successful,” he added.

    After the exchange helicopter landing, the Russian Navy carried out naval gunfire support firing at land targets, Martov said.

    Russia has three ships taking part in RIMPAC-2012, the destroyer Admiral Panteleyev, the tanker Boris Butoma and the salvage tug Fotiy Krylov.

    The active phase of the exercise will run until August 2, involving 45 warships and support vessels from 22 countries, and also 100 combat aircraft and over 20,000 marines.

    The exercise includes dozens of combat missions and exercises, including humanitarian, search and rescue operations. RIMPAC-2012 will also practice evacuation of civilians in an amphibious landing operation, and also joint anti-submarine, anti-aircraft and anti-ship defense.

    The first RIMPAC exercises were held in 1971 and involved the navies of Australia Canada, New Zealand, the U.K. and United States.

    RIMPAC: Moscow and Washington are forging a naval shield

    With the main part of the RIMPAC-2012 war games successfully completed, a detachment of ships of the Russian Navy Pacific Fleet has sailed into Pearl Harbor.

    RIMPAC – or Rim of the Pacific Exercise, which are war games taking place in Pacific region countries – are mainly focused on working out military actions and interaction between the naval forces of the allied countries of the US. It so happened that, for the most part, countries with obvious or hidden frictions with China were the ones invited to take part in the RIMPAC-2012, and some media even dubbed these exercises “anti-Chinese”. However, it is at the very least premature to talk about Russia “preparing to wage a war against China in the company of the United States”.

    Available information indicates that the fleets of Russia and the United States were working out interactions in the traditional “anti-piracy” vein: inspection groups and anti-terror units on “suspicious” and “captured by terrorists” ships, joint maneuvers, patrols, and reconnaissance operations. Nevertheless, elements of military actions were also included. For example, joint targeting of aerial objects. In the course of the exercises on repelling air attacks, aircraft of the Canadian Air Forces played the role of a conditional enemy. Of course, the aircraft were not fired at, not counting “conditional launches” of anti-aircraft missiles, but firing at air targets did occur. The Admiral Panteleev’s artillerymen successfully shot down a high-speed radio-controlled object launched from aboard the USS Gary.

    The United States and Russia are actively working out interactions of their armed forces, even more so considering the fact that the RIMPAC maneuvers – during which Russian ships act together with NATO craft – are not the only war games in 2012. There are other non-naval exercises on the war games’ list. It could be stated that today the intensity of joint actions is the highest it has ever been as far as the whole of post-Soviet history is concerned.

    The question is not at all new. What are the prospects of these joint actions of Russia and its recent potential enemies? War games come to mind, including the exchange of trainees, supervisors, and so on. It is obvious that Russia's accession to NATO is out of the question, and not just due to mutual political rhetoric. Such an accession would be equally disadvantageous to both parties.

    In order to integrate Russia into the Alliance, NATO will have to solve a lot of issues related to incorporating a giant war potential within the bloc, which is comparable only with the US potential. This process cannot but cause a painful reaction among the new members of the Alliance, which consider the organization to be a “shield against Russia”. For example, in case of Russia's integration into the North Atlantic Alliance and the foundation of some kind of an independent “NATO East-European Headquarters”, it is very likely that a situation might occur where some of the former Warsaw Treaty members will be forced to receive orders from Moscow.

    For Russia, membership in NATO would mean joining a bulky multiform organization with uncertain historical perspectives and significant internal factions, and in addition bearing a heavy burden of the Afghan conflict with doubtful consequences – and an actual prospect of a big war in the Middle East.

    In these circumstances, the unity of Moscow and Washington “under Brussels’ star” looks very unlikely. Yet it does not hamper joint exercises. Russia and the US have too many points of contact to let pre-election rhetoric or problems of the lower Alliance to ruin attempts at establishing normal relations. Time will show what forms these relations will assume.

    Russia’s Baltic Fleet to Hold Large-Scale Drills in Kaliningrad Exclave

    Russia’s Baltic Fleet battleships and combat aircraft will take part in large-scale tactical drills in the country’s westernmost exclave of Kaliningrad on August 8 to land marines in rough terrain, the press office of the Western Military District reported.

    The drills will be held at the Baltic Fleet’s Khmelyovka firing range ahead of the celebration of the Russian Air Force centennial on August 12 and will involve 500 servicemen, warships, support vessels, combat aircraft and gunships.

    During the drills, Su-27 multi-role fighter jets will provide air cover for the fleet’s battleships in the area of marine landing. Su-24 Fencer tactical bombers will simulate the delivery of air strikes on the ground targets of the potential enemy.

    The battleships involved in the military exercises will practice air defense operations in interaction with the fleet’s aviation.

    Helicopters of the fleet’s naval aviation will land combat engineers to make passages through minefields in the area of troops landing. The large amphibious assault ships Alexander Shabalin and Kaliningrad will engage in a combat, with the use of supporting fire, to land two assault companies.

    The fleet’s transport planes will also drop paratroopers in the rear of the potential enemy.

    During the drills, marines will practice the seizure of a sea shore and its defense.

    A Russian joint naval flotilla has arrived in the Mediterranean after missing a planned visit to a Russian Black Sea port, a defense ministry source said on Monday.

    The group of Russian warships and support ships from Russia’s Northern, Baltic and Black Sea fleets was to have made a call in the port of Novorossiisk on Sunday.

    “At present, vessels from the group have sailed past the Italian coast and are now headed westward,” the source said without explaining why the route had been changed.

    The ships are currently performing combat training exercises in the central Mediterranean Sea, the source added.

    The task force comprises three large amphibious assault ships, two Neustrashimy class frigates, an Udaloy class destroyer and two support ships from Russia’s Northern, Baltic and Black Sea Fleets.

    Late last week, the joint naval task force conducted two-day tactical exercises with live-firing in the Mediterranean.

    Russia’s Pacific Fleet subs successfully launch ballistic missiles

    Two nuclear submarines with the Russian Pacific Fleet have successfully launched cruise and intercontinental ballistic missiles at targets in the Okhotsk Sea and the Chizha testing ground in the north of European Russia.

    Fleet's spokesman Capt. 1st Rank Roman Martov told reporters today the subs and ships have conducted the drills in adverse weather conditions. Simultaneously, two missile-carrying ships, Iney and Razliv, rehearsed a joint missile attack on a target dozens of kilometers away.

    US Detected Russian Nuclear Submarine in Backyard

    American military detected a Russian nuclear submarine off the US coast, writes CNN referring to undisclosed sources in the Pentagon. The submarine was found near the US East Coast in October. It was not specified how exactly she was identified.

    The Russian sub neither entered American territorial waters nor hunted American warships nor approached naval submarine base Kings Bay, Georgia. However, the sub was detected near Florida, next to the site where a US carrier strike group was holding an exercise.

    According to sources of CNN, in such way Russia demonstrated its intentions to expand radius of submarine patrols. Experts suppose that the Russian sub was conducting an exercise off the US and then headed for European part of the Atlantic.

    According to CNN, that was a Project 945A Condor (Sierra-II) submarine serving at Russia's Northern Fleet. Subs of this kind are designed to trace and destroy opponent's submarines and carrier strike groups.

    It is the first submarine of this type detected so close to US coast. American press reported in Aug 2012 that the Project 971 Schuka-B (Akula) Russian submarine had been deployed undetected next to the US for several weeks; in June-July 2012, the sub cruised in the Gulf of Mexico. Officially, the Pentagon did not confirm that information.

    Russia, Ukraine to Hold Joint Naval Drills on June 19-25

    MOSCOW, June 7 (RIA Novosti) – Some 15 warships and auxiliary vessels will take part in Russian-Ukrainian anti-piracy exercises in the Black Sea on June 19-25, a Russian Black Sea Fleet spokesman has said.

    The Fairway of Peace 2013 drills will focus on joint missions to counter piracy and terrorism threats in the region.

    “The Russian Navy will be represented by the Bora missile hovercraft , the Muromets ASW corvette, the P-60 missile boat and the Turbinist mine sweeper,” Capt.1st Rank Vyacheslav Trukhachev told reporters on Thursday.

    The drills will also involve several Russian Su-24 attack aircraft, a Be-12 ASW plane and a Ka-27PS search-and-rescue helicopter.

    The Fairway of Peace drills were conducted for the first time in 1997. They were held every two years until 2003.

    After a long break caused by the straining of relations between Moscow and Kiev during Viktor Yushchenko presidency in Ukraine, the sides resumed the drills in 2010 with a computer-assisted command post exercise.

    Since 2011, the Fairway of Peace drills are held annually and involve warships as well as other naval assets of both navies.

    Russian warships arrive in Shanghai ahead of joint exercise

    Post  Flyingdutchman on Mon May 19, 2014 8:20 pm

    Six Russian warships have arrived in Shanghai’s Wusong navy harbor to prepare for the upcoming Joint Sea-2014 naval drills with China.

    The vessels will join the Chinese navy in joint military exercises that will begin on May 20 in the waters and air space near Shanghai, in the East China Sea. A total of 14 vessels, as well as a helicopter and a special forces team from Russia, will be used in the maneuvers.

    "Different from previous China-Russia sea joint drills, the two sides will mix all the warships together for the first time, and the ships will carry out battle exercises beyond visibility for the first time," said Tian Zhong, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Chinese Navy.

    "And submarines and warships will be arranged to fight automatically for the first time. The drill will help promote joint military capability between the two countries to face new threats and challenges," he said.

    The warships are part of Russia’s Pacific fleet. Led by a missile cruiser, they will practice maneuvers, helicopter deck landings, search and rescue operations and live-fire drills on sea and air targets with the Chinese navy.

    "This is our third joint military drill. We want to improve our cooperation through more exercises," said Alexandr Fedotenkov, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy.

    The upcoming exercise follows similar operations in the Yellow Sea in April 2012 and off Russia’s east coast in July 2013.

    Both sides want to improve practical cooperation and their ability to jointly deal with maritime security threats. Because the joint naval exercises are becoming routine, military exchanges are expected to increase in scope and number.

    It will be the third exercise between the two sides, following similar operations off the coast of Russia’s Far East in July 2013, and the one in the Yellow Sea in April 2012.

    The Chinese military says the drills are regular exercises by China and Russia. Both sides want to improve practical cooperation and their ability to jointly deal with maritime security threats. As the joint naval exercises are becoming a routine, military exchanges are expected to increase in scope and number.

    Russian Naval Destroyer Moving to Mediterranean

    MOSCOW, July 29 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian Navy’s Vice-Admiral Kulakov, an Udaloy-class destroyer, is moving to the eastern parts of the Mediterranean Sea, where it will join the permanent Russian naval task force, Northern Fleet spokesman Capt. 1st Rank Vadim Serga said.

    Earlier this month, the Vice-Admiral Kulakov entered the port of La Valetta, Malta, where Northern Fleet sailors celebrated Russia’s Navy Day while berthed in Dock No. 6 at the Maltese shipyard.

    “During the ceremonial meeting the captain of the ship has read the order assigning military ranks to the soldiers. Some military servants were awarded diplomas,” Serga said.

    Earlier, the destroyer has also entered the port of Ceuta, Spain, and Cyprus’ port of Limasol.

    The Vice-Admiral Kulakov set sail from the Northern Fleet’s main base in Severomorsk on April 15 and has traveled more than 10,000 nautical miles since then.

    The destroyer was commissioned in 1982 and was on combat duty with the Northern Fleet until March 1991, when she was retired for repairs that lasted more than 18 years. The ship returned to the Severomorsk base on December 7, 2010.
