    Work on modernization of powerful (2 Megawatt) radio communication equipment for use with submerged objects (submarines at long distance).

    That's the base I served on (Зевс) mentioned right there in the article; there is only 1 of its specific kind in the world AFAIK. Communicates with nuclear ballistic missile subs, it's a direct link in Russia's strategic nuclear arsenal. It's incredibly powerful; I won't quote the power consumption of the transmission sites because I reckon the figures I heard were wrong. There were some sort of analogous facilities in Kyrgyzstan & Belarus I believe, but not the same.

    Modernization was scheduled exactly for this sort of time period, up to 2015 or perhaps starting from 2015.

    4 trillion rubles to be assigned for Russian Navy modernization - Putin
    http://english.ruvr.ru/2013_01_10/4-trillion-rubles-to-be-assigned-for-Russian-Navy-modernization-Putin/


    Some 4 trillion rubles will be assigned for acquiring ships for the Russian Navy before 2020, President Vladimir Putin said in a video conference with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in Severomorsk.

    "Modernization of the Navy is a major priority of our strengthening of the Armed Forces. The state armament program for the period until 2020 assigns more than 4 trillion rubles for the formation of balanced groups of warships and submarines," the president said.

    In addition to eight "Borei" strategic submarines, the Russian Navy will receive eight "Yasen" multirole nuclear submarines before 2020, he said.

    "We will also build multirole diesel submarines," the president said.

    Sevmash will be the main builder, he noted.

    Heh, I didn't operate any comms equipment directly but I had an interesting link in the chain too.

    In all seriousness though TR1, I don't really want to disclose any details - on anything. I doubt I know of anything too sensitive, but one can never be too careful. Suffice to say; there really is nothing all that interesting about the radio transmissions sites, or anything else Cool

    Well, maybe a couple interesting things.

    I understand, and it is the right position, as far as avoiding visits from FSB is concerned Very Happy .

    That being said if you are ever drunk and feel like spilling the sweet sweet details, you know who to send a message to.

    Good to hear the system is operational period though. I imagine upgrades are logical given the new generation subs entering service this decade.

    MOSCOW, January 5 (RIA Novosti) – The Russian Caspian Flotilla will get two newest small-size missile ships and three Serna amphibious assault ships, a spokesman for the South military district said.

    The flotilla will get small-size missile ships Grad Sviyazhsk and Uglich by summer and three Serna amphibious assault ships by spring, the spokesman said in a statement on Saturday.

    Earlier reports said three modern Project 11770 Serna amphibious assault ships were to be delivered in the first half of the year.

    The Caspian flotilla is also expected to get two supply ships this year, the spokesman said.

    Russia plans to revive shipbuilding on Black Sea Cost

    MOSCOW, January 18 (RIA Novosti) – Russia is planning to construct shipbuilding and ship-repair facilities on the Black Sea coast to ensure proper maintenance of its civilian and military fleets in the region, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Friday.
    Addressing a conference on the development of Russia’s shipbuilding capability in the Black Sea region, Rogozin said that following the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990s Russia has lost the bulk of its shipbuilding assets that were primarily located in Ukraine.
    Most of the shipbuilding industry is currently concentrated in northern Russia and in Russia’s Far East, which makes the maintenance of the ships based on the Black Sea, especially the warships of the Black Sea Fleet, a difficult task.
    “The situation is unbearable,” Rogozin, who oversees the Russian defense industry, said.
    “We must determine our priorities in this [Black Sea] region as soon as possible,” Rogozin said, adding that the efforts should be focused on facilities in Novorossiisk, Sochi and other ports along the Russian Black Sea coast.
    “It's important to immediately start the construction of facilities that would ensure proper maintenance of the Black Sea Fleet and the defense of our southern borders,” the deputy prime minister said.
    The bulk of the Russian Black Sea Fleet is stationed at the port of Sevastopol in Crimea under a lease agreement with Ukraine. Moscow and Kiev signed the so-called Kharkiv Agreements on April 21, 2010, extending the fleet's lease on the base for another 25 years after the current lease expires in 2017.
    However, Russia desperately needs a reliable network of shipbuilding and ship-repair facilities in the region, as the Black Sea Fleet is expected to receive a total of 15 new frigates and diesel-electric submarines by 2020.

    This is very good news, and an important move. Forget the Nikolajev in Ukraine(russia) and bulgaria.
    First, maintainence is probabably being built already in Novorossiysk, but a naval yard with heavy duty repair and new construction is really needed. Time frame isnt told, but a guess would be it can be operational by 2020 perhaps?
    Also Sochi will probably have repair facilities.
    Question is what will happen to Sevastopol? Abandon as a junkyard? Probably, without russia the place will never thrive.

    I think Sevastopol because of it's location is irreplaceable. Personally, I think the Crimea will become part of Russia once again in the longer term.

    Sevastopol really is critical to BSF.

    Sadly, I don't see how exactly it will be part of Russia again.

    Peacefully by agreement. I think eventually, Ukraine (perhaps with the exception of the Lvov region) and Belorussia will be part of a confederation with Russia. The talked about Eurasian union is just a start of a longer term process

    Russia starts biggest naval games in decades

    Russian warships from the Black Sea, the Baltic and the Arctic Naval Fleets have started ten days of wargames in the Black and the Mediterranean Seas.
    Russian strategic bombers are also taking part.

    The games will include exercises to practice artillery and rocket barrages.

    The drill is Russia’s biggest of its kind in more than two decades.

    MOSCOW, December 26 (RIA Novosti) – India has asked Russia to replace the faulty parts on the leased Nerpa nuclear-powered submarine as they affect its operational readiness, the Times of India reported.
    The Navy sources cited by the newspaper on Tuesday did not specify the components that needed the replacement but said they “were critical for the operations of the submarine.”


    Whats wrong with SSN Nerpa? Machinery, propulsion? Cant they fix it themselves and why does it leak to media!?

    2 22350 frigates laid down;
    2 20380/20385 corvettes laid down;

    I'm sure I am forgetting something



    So 2012 passed, let's reflect on how much was pushed back by at least a year.
    Only 1 11356 was laid down
    Only 1 22350 was laid down
    No 885 subs
    1 955 sub, but work practically started many months before that.

    So, not so much of a huge year Smile
    Hoping 2013 delivers.
