    Russian naval ships arrive at Syria’s Tartus in large-scale drills


    The naval maneuvers are focused on measures by the Navy and the Aerospace Force to protect Russia’s national interests in the World Ocean and counter military threats to Russia from the direction of seas and oceans

    MOSCOW, February 4. /TASS/. A group of amphibious assault ships of the Northern and Baltic Fleets arrived at the Russian Navy’s logistics facility in the Syrian port of Tartus, Russia’s Defense Ministry reported on Friday.

    The naval task force made up of the large amphibious assault ships Pyotr Morgunov, Georgy Pobedonosets, Olenegorsky Gornyak, Korolyov, Minsk and Kaliningrad completed its transit around Europe and arrived in the eastern Mediterranean as part of the drills under the direction of Russian Navy Commander-in-Chief Admiral Nikolay Yevmenov, the ministry informed.

    "Currently, the ships are in a roadstead in the Syrian port of Tartus where they have begun replenishing their fuel and lubricants, fresh water and food supplies to the required level at the Russian Navy’s logistic support facility in the Mediterranean," the ministry said in a statement.

    Russian naval ships can arrive at the Tartus logistics facility to anchor, carry out repairs, replenish supplies or undergo maintenance.

    Large amphibious assault ships of Project 11711 (the Pyotr Morgunov) and Project 775 (the Georgy Pobedonosets, the Olenegorsky Gornyak, the Korolyov, the Minsk and the Kaliningrad) are designated to land an amphibious assault force on an unequipped shore and sealift troops and cargo. They are capable of transporting various types of armor.

    In compliance with the 2022 plan of the Russian Armed Forces’ training, a series of naval drills is being held in January-February this year in all the areas of responsibility of the Navy’s fleets under the general command of Russian Navy Commander-in-Chief Admiral Yevmenov.

    The naval maneuvers are focused on measures by the Navy and the Aerospace Force to protect Russia’s national interests in the World Ocean and counter military threats to Russia from the direction of seas and oceans.

    The drills will cover the seas adjacent to Russian territory and also operationally important areas of the World Ocean. Separate drills will run in the Mediterranean, North and Okhotsk Seas, in the northeastern Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean.

    Overall, the massive drills will bring together over 140 warships and support vessels, more than 60 aircraft, 1,000 items of military hardware and about 10,000 troops.

    As predicted, the Russians have reportedly requested Turkish permission to send the 6 assault ships (that arrived from Baltic/Arctic is Syria last week thorough the Bosporus and into the Black Sea).

    Unconfirmed reports that the cruiser Moskva will head to the Mediterranean.
    If true, there will be 3 Atlant (Slava) class cruiser to confront the the aircraft carrier Harry Truman battlegroup.
    Would like to see a picture of 3 of them together.

    Looks as if the exercise off Ireland may have finished early, or this little group left early.

    A rarity on AIS, but message is clear and out. It is highly unusual for a Russian Navy combat ship to be on AIS, one or two who do, other than the auxiliaries who tend to be more on AIS.
    Here is the 'Marshal Ustinov' now in the Mediterranean.
    (not surprising to me really).

    Now confirmed, the Northern Fleet Ropucha are about to enter the Black Sea, the Baltic Fleet Ropucha and Ivan Gren probably tomorrow and apparently the Rostov on Don Kilo a few days after as she finally, after an 11 month holiday in the Med following her maintenance in the Baltic.

    Travelling as a group.


    The ships will pass north over several days. The first package will consist of the three Ropucha class ships: Minsk (127), Korolev (130) and Kaliningrad (102). Based on information shared with Naval News the second package is expected to follow on February 9th. This will consist of Pyotr Morgunov (117) and two Ropucha class ships Georgy Pobedonosets (016) and Olenegorsky Gornyak (012). The submarine, KILO Class boat Rostov-na-Donu (B-237) will follow on February 11th.


    Meanwhile the Pacific Fleet’s Slava, Varyag, transited the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean on February 2nd. So that is two Slava Class cruisers in the Mediterranean. Both cruisers are accompanied by other warships, many equipped with cruise missiles. Together with the Kilo Class submarines in Tartus, these may be seen as a direct counter to NATO carrier battle groups there.

    A new stealth warship-submarine hybrid unveiled in Russia

    Russian Navy: Status and News #6 6203b410


    A military design bureau in Russia showed digital images of the larger, upgraded model of its stealth combat surface ship-submarine hybrid on Wednesday.

    Dubbed ‘Strazh’ (‘the Guardian’), the vessel “combines surface and underwater features,” and can spot enemies with its powerful radar and approach them unnoticed, the Rubin Central Design Bureau for Marine Engineering in St. Petersburg told RIA Novosti.

    Rubin unveiled the first, smaller version of the vessel, which operates both as a patrol ship and a submarine, early last year. The newer model is 72 meters long (236ft) and can travel at speeds of up to 21 knots.

    Strazh is equipped with a gun turret, two guided missile launchers, four torpedo tubes, and a drone. The model shown last year was designed for a crew of up to 42. Its overall layout is similar to the Soviet-era Whiskey-class submarines, Rubin said.

    Rubin said the vessel, marketed overseas as BOSS (Border and Offshore Submersible Sentry), will be cost-effective amid cuts to military spending during the Covid-19 pandemic, and can be tailored to foreign buyers.

    The company did not specify if it had a working prototype or a rollout timeline.

    Interesting concept, would want to know more about sensors and weapons though... certainly for small countries that could be dealing with opponents with more powerful navies a patrol boat that is also an SSK might be interesting, because a patrol boat would be vulnerable, but an SSK less so.

    Could be quite interesting with the right gun and the right missile armament, but would be heavily reliant on drones for situational awareness though.

    Hey I speculated about such a ship less then a year ago. It makes perfect sense. No need to dive that deep, and much less vulnerable to radar.
