    Is it just me or are those ships sitting much "higher" in the water? Looks like they lost a lot of weight on their long and "arduous" journey? Wink

    Its not just you. Its a difficult call but it seems that when they are properly underway the wash on the sides seems to be higher up the sides of the ship.

    Compare the videos of the same ships transiting the Bosporus with them in the harbour.

    Earlier I thought, from the first pictures in the Baltic, that they had a heavy load on but now I suspect they were sailing pretty empty the whole time.

    Yes very hard to tell. Although this picture was taken from a beach it does look kind of on the heavy side though?

    Its the angle that is the problem, a few meters higher and it changes.

    It started with full tanks and arrived with pretty much all of it burned which also changes it weight.

    However they for sure provided some gifts to Hmeimim.

    Tactical nuks must have been provided to all advanced bases.

    Not really. It's just a normal move since all the build up around ukraine is to deter NATO attacks. Having nuclear assets in Syria to have the pissibility to attack their southern flank and the Bosphorus is a normal step.

    It is like Russian forces inside their own territory near the Ukraine... it is not aggressive and not intended to escalate, but would be irresponsible if they weren't prepared for Kiev or US to do something stupid... it is their job to protect and that is what they are doing.

    Some in the west don't understand the stakes.

    And what other warships they they throwing into the northern fleet? and will it always be Russia's most powerful fleet?

    What purpose will such a vessel serve that is not being served by submarines and surface combatants already? Nada.

    "Russian frigate Neustrashimy starts acceptance trials after years-long repairs"

    "The ship’s acceptance trials will include several deployments to the sea. Once they are finished, Neustrashimy will be handed over to the Russian Navy and will re-enter service with the Baltic Fleet."

    Any news on what the Neustrashimy refit consisted of? Is it a deep upgrade with weapon systems upgraded or just a refit to get it back to work? Given the time they took I assume the first.

    Страж is a patrol unit with obvious limits (it cannot boast obviously the same offensive and defensive equipment of a surface unit of equivalent cost neither the kinematic and sensor capability of a submarine one) but at the same time this unit would boast a survivability totally unknow up today for any unit of the same displacement class.

    A Страж could patrol an area with its sonar and radar receiving data from satellite network and engage from very long range an enemy unit with its missiles, a group of enemy aircraft and ships could deliver, at this point, a saturating attack with AGM-158C LRASM , Naval Strike Missiles, JSOW against it and this entire attack would become totally worthless because within few dozen of seconds the Страж could easily descend 30-50 m underwater.

    The same could happen when a group of P-8As, armed with sonobuoys, Mark-54 torpedos and deep charges to hunt a "submarine", after an under-water contact in an area, would become easy prey for a surface unit with a powerful radar appearing from literally nowere.
