    Hovercraft From Hell: Russia Designs Next Generation Military Landing Ship

    A next generation large air-cushioned landing craft is being developed by Russia’s Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau, Russian media reported on Tuesday.

    http://sputniknews.com/russia/20151020/1028818192/russia-hovercraft-features.html

    “This is a dramatically updated version of the Soviet-era Zubr-class military hovercraft built in Ukraine. The main engine will be made in Russia and the craft will carry a new weapons system. To top it all off, the new hovercraft will look better too,” Dmitry Tsygankov, the head of marketing and technical information at Almaz, told RIA Novosti on Tuesday.

    The Soviet design Zubr-class air-cushioned landing craft is the world’s largest hovercraft, designed for shore landing assault units.

    The Zubr hovercraft has a cargo area of 400 square meters and a fuel capacity of 56 tons.

    It can carry three main battle tanks (up to 150 tons), or ten armored fighting vehicles with 140 troops (up to 131 tons), or eight armored personnel carriers of total mass up to 115 tons, or eight amphibious tanks or up to 500 troops (with 360 troops in the cargo compartment).

    At full displacement the ship is capable of negotiating up to 5-degree slopes on non-equipped shores and 1.6m-high vertical walls.

    The Zubr remains seaworthy in conditions up to Sea State 4 and has a cruising speed of 30-40 knots.

    They could at least publish concept art or something... cry

    Russian Navy to Create Special Units to Mimic Opponents' Tactics

    The Russian Navy plans to create special military units that would play the role of potential enemy forces during naval exercises, Russian Navy Rear Admiral Viktor Kochemazov said, according to TV Channel Zvezda.

    Kochemazov was invited to the program "Military Council" on radio station Echo of Moscow.

    "We already have an idea of creating a special division, which would imitate the system of combat of [Russia's] potential enemies during trainings on a regular basis," Kochemazov explained.

    Currently, when Russian naval troops conduct military drills some of their counterparts act as a potential enemy. However, units that act as enemy troops during military drills don't have special training to mimic real opponents which could lead to Russian naval units not being fully prepared for all possible warfare scenarios at sea.

    With the introduction of these training units that would specialize in mimicking potential enemies, the Russian Navy would fill this gap and become prepared to face anything, anywhere and from anyone.

    Earlier this month, it was reported that the Russian Navy received one new submarine and seven warships along with seven new aircraft in the third quarter of 2015.

    Russia is currently carrying out a $325 billion rearmament program to modernize 70 percent of its military equipment by 2020.

    Usually russiamil was considered 5th colum garbage. I didnt read through this and not really in position to judge as I know liittle about navy. Just fyi.

    But my take on all this is the first quote regarding the navy in the article about its long range missiles on small ship - Russia should concentrate more on that. Build ships specifically to deal blows at long ranges from such small ships, and develop other compact ships with both shtil and klub missiles. Shouldnt be too difficult. Russias current and upcoming corvettes and frigates are, for some reason, ridiculuous prices and long construction times.

    Russian Submarines Launch Ballistic Missiles From Barents, Okhotsk Seas

    According to Russian Defense Ministry, Submarines of Russia's Northern and Pacific fleets have launched ballistic missiles from the Barents and Okhotsk seas as part of a routine drill.

    Submarines of Russia's Northern and Pacific fleets have launched ballistic missiles from the Barents and Okhotsk seas as part of a routine drill, the Russian Defense Ministry said Friday.

    "Strategic underwater missile cruisers Bryansk of the Northern Fleet and Podolsk of the Pacific Fleet launched ballistic missiles from territories in the Barents and Okhotsk seas," the ministry's press service said in a statement.

    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.

    US faces renewed challenge from Russian navy

    The US is debating whether to position more ships and naval assets in Europe as Russian warships and submarines operate at levels not seen in two decades, according to the new head of the USN.


    Expect the Russians to Keep Buzzing American Navy Ships

    Cold War-era tactics resurface at sea, but this time, Moscow’s ultimate intentions are unknown.

    In the opening dogfight of “Top Gun,” a sailor stares at a radar screen, nervously calling out the distance of fictitious MiG-28 fighter jets challenging Tom Cruise in his F-14 Tomcat. His commander watches the foreign aircraft edge closer to his carrier, and finally barks, “250 miles — get ’em outta here.”


    A similar scene likely unfolded Tuesday as two Russian Tupolev Tu-142s approached the USS Ronald Reagan in international waters near the Korean peninsula. The carrier launched four armed F/A-18 Super Hornets to intercept and escort the maritime patrol aircraft, variants of the venerable Bear bomber. Still, the Russian planes pressed on, eventually passing within one mile of the U.S. carrier.

    Russia’s New Sub Rescue Ship Completes State Trials – Defense Ministry

    The Russian Navy’s new deep-water search-and-rescue Bester-1 vehicle has completed state trials, the defense ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the statement, St. Petersburg-based Admiralty Shipyards, a leading enterprise of the Russian shipbuilding industry and part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, "signed the act of state acceptance on completion of state trials" of the Bester-1, "which will be transferred to the Navy of Russia in the near future."

    Vehicle tests were carried out with the Igor Belousov, an advanced search-and-rescue ship, in the Baltic Sea. The vehicle will become the main element of the submarine rescue system aboard the ship.

    The six-member crew of the Bester-1 passed necessary training with an underwater vehicle of similar design in the Northern Fleet, the statement reads.

    Russia is currently performing a $325-billion rearmament program to achieve a 70-percent modernization of its military by 2020.

    Why?

    Actually first ones launched from the new 6356 submarine which just joined the Black Fleet. Those may also be the ALCM's launched from both Tu-160's and Tu-95's today including apparently some new Kh-101 or 102, whichever is the non-nuclear version, which was also a first. These planes along with Tu-22M3's flew out of Russian air bases. Actually not sure the last time the Long Range Aviation actually engaged in combat.

    EDIT: forgot for a moment that poor attack in Georgia.

    Ten Russian Navy ships involved in anti-terrorist operation in Syria — defense minister

    The Russian Caspian flotilla warships on Friday launched 18 cruise missiles at terrorist positions in Syria hitting seven targets

    MOSCOW, November 20. /TASS/. Ten ships of the Russian Navy are involved in the anti-terrorism operation in Syria, Russia’s Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu told President Vladimir Putin on Friday.

    "The naval group comprises ten ships, six of them are in the Mediterranean," the minister said.

    Shoigu said the Caspian flotilla warships on Friday launched 18 cruise missiles at terrorist positions in Syria hitting seven targets.

    "On November 20, the Caspian flotilla warships launched 18 cruise missiles at seven targets in the Raqqa, Idlib and Aleppo provinces of Syria. All the targets were hit," Shoigu said.

    On October 7, the Caspian flotilla warships took part in an operation against the Islamic State terrorist group. They delivered a massive cruise missile strike at the IS targets in Syria from the Kalibr NK sea-based complex from the Caspian Sea water area.

    Russia has banned the Islamic State in its territory as an extremist terrorist organization.

    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.

    Regarding the so called poor attack on Georgia this is a brilliant example of progress in Russian air power and a reminder of what western sources have been talking about in terms of the difference between Russian and western conventional military power.

    The long string of bomb hits in georgia at an angle to the target runway was standard practise.

    If you flew down the runway and dropped your bombs a side wind could blow all your bombs off course and you wont get a single hit on the runway... so standard practise is to fly across the runway, so that some of your bombs can land on the tarmac itself and damage the runway.

    After the Gefest & T upgrade however such a bombing run can be done in free flight and would be much more accurate... only a fraction of the bombs needed to be used to get the same or better result.

    As we now see in Syria they are able to hit more targets more effectively now that they have a precision navigation and a precision bombing capability with air craft avionics and of course also guided weapons too.
