    The First Casualty - Falklands War History

    May 10th: #OTD in the #Falklands war, a 100 mile Exclusion Zone is declared around Ascension, as Soviet aircraft and submarines have been in the area. This is an actual photo of Ascension taken from a Soviet sub at the time. They got close, and were passing Intel to Argentina.

    That photo, not what it seems

    This photo was taken from the Zaporozh`ye, a Primor'ye Class of intelligence collection ship during a deployment in the Atlantic in the spring and summer of 1982. The claim about the submarine is just fake.

    16 of these would be perfection
    First they need at least that many modern Frigates & Corvettes completed, at least 3 of each per fleet & should be 6 of each.

    That's almost done !

    Black sea has got the 3 Grigirovitch and some buyan M.

    The steregoushchy and derivates are in service in good numbers in the other fleets and they keep producing them.

    They have 3 ready Gorshkov and keep producing them.

    Some news bits :

    - The Georgy Kurbatov minesweeper will be launched during June 2020. This is the project 12700 vessel that burned at the plant during construction. The damage has been repaired.

    - The 8th project 12700 minesweeper will be laid down this summer

    - Yantar shipyard is building 2 project 11356 frigates for the Indian navy. These are the ex- Admirals Butakov and Istomin. It is now confirmed that they will have Ukrainian engines.

    - The project 20380 corvette Retivy that was launched earlier this March is destined to the Black Sea fleet.

    - A project 22160 class ship is very active in the East Mediterranean, it was seen recently in the port of Tartous, Syria. Probably the D. Rogachov.

    - The veteran Smetlivy will no longer sail. She is now being fitted as a museum ship.

    - The 7500 tons project 23700 Rescue vessel Voevoda will begin sea trials this fall.

    - The Black Sea Fleet will receive the 3500 T project 03182 tanker Vice Admiral Pomarov at the end of this year or early next year.

    So it looks like Priboy class helicopter carrier and Admiral Gorshkov frigate will be delayed to next year at least due to COVID. Also the fate of the first Gremyashchiy class corvette is in question after unsatisfactory sea trial.

    I would say your fate is not looking good, even after you just had a one week leave.

    Well not really... having these ships would give Frigates and Corvettes a purpose, so they can and are making both at the same time...

    These will significantly expand the number of different roles the Russian Navy can perform... which is all you can expect from new ships.

    Corvettes and frigates are already in production, all it takes now is will to build more

    Designs are completed and proven, only thing missing is decision



    These transport ships are something that was completely missing from the roster and which need to be built in order to fill the gap that is about to occur when old ones hit expiration date

    To say nothing of the fact that with this class they salvaged all the time and money dropped into original Gren-class and turned failure into success

    Currently there is 1 Admiral Gorshkov class frigate. Still waiting on the first Gremyashchiy class corvette.

    Very good news indeed!  Very Happy  The Kashins were iconic ships of their day, and we've been fortunate indeed that one unit has survived in service this long and remains in good condition.

    Hopefully we'll see the same for one of the surviving 1135s, either Ladny or Pytlivy.

    With proper testing and hand washing and distancing they should be OK...

    To be fair, when your building ships social distancing isn't much of an option. You are going to be right next to guys and you won't be washing your hands constantly.

    And the main problem is Russia got caught up in the hoopla while other parts of the world like China, Qatar, Turkey don't care about it and even wages war.

    The Russian Navy’s Black Sea Fleet can now deploy its submarines to the Mediterranean. This is despite an international treaty which many thought would prevent it. The Montreux Convention, agreed in 1936, prohibits submarines from passing through the Bosporus Strait, which connects the Black Sea to the Mediterranean. There are exceptions in the treaty for special cases for Black Sea nations: delivery of new submarines to the Black Sea, and exits for repairs. Russia is now routinely using these clauses to reestablish a permanent submarine presence in the Mediterranean. This is changing the balance of power there.

    The deployment of these submarines to the Mediterranean is a serious concern for NATO leadership. Speaking at the International Institute for Strategic Studies on June 25, Admiral James Foggo, Commander of U.S. Naval Forces in Europe and Africa, described the Eastern Mediterranean as “one of the most kinetic areas in the world.” He said, “the Russians are deploying quiet, modern, diesel submarines capable of launching the Kalibr cruise missile.” This refers to Kilo-class boats deploying there via the Bosporus.

    They could upgrade some of the old kilos being replaced by new ones and base them permanently in Tartus. Crews can switch by planes. Then they could buy newer ones.
