New coastal defense divisions

24
The Russian Ministry of Defense is planning to create coastal defense units of the divisional level along the Northern Sea Route (NSR) - on the Kola Peninsula and Chukotka, designed to ensure traffic safety along this waterway. The decision on their deployment has already been made, their organizational structure is being worked out in accordance with the tasks assigned to the formations (anti-amphibious, anti-sabotage, anti-air defense of subarctic regions). The SMP runs throughout the 5600 km and covering it from the western (Kola Peninsula) and eastern (Chukotka) directions will allow full control over its movement.


New coastal defense divisions


“This is part of the important work on the integrated development of the Arctic zone along the Northern Sea Route, which today includes more than 70 major points and ports in the territory of the Russian Federation,” said a military official.

At the moment, the only military unit of the coastal defense is the 126 I brigade located in Perevalnoye, Crimea. It was created on the basis of the 36-th brigade of the coastal forces of the Ukrainian Navy.

      In Soviet times, this territory was under good control and missile systems and there was coastal artillery and everything was patrolled from the air!

      There was such a Soviet project - a transpolar highway. In the "strongest" version right up to Chukotka from Salekhard. And the road to Igarka was practically built (unfinished and abandoned).
      This would be a concrete solution to the problem of protecting our North.

        This is yes! Mattresses and so the concept of "Russian Arctic" and "Russian North" as dumbbells on the head. good

    The Northern Sea Route is like a bone in the throat for many "partners" and the creation of its defensive infrastructure will drive them into a rage !!! tongue

    And not only that! There were PGRK SRD 10 "PIONEER", according to NATO classification "SABER" -saber .. They will become impudent, they can be placed again. And already more powerful. I would not say about a strong defense. We had problems. But there are disadvantages in fighters, we were not given new ones after Belenko's betrayal, were compensated by strong air defense missiles.

    Shipping safety costs should be included in the ship's fare.

      Correct thought. I fully support this proposal. There is no extra money, and it will be easier for "partners" to pay extra than to swim (walk) by roundabout routes.

      But what without them in business where a lot of money will be spinning ?? They will be the first to climb into the stake and use this transport route to deliver their goods and goods to the European market!

    Moreover, here it is much closer and safer. There are no pirates, and their sworn "friends".

      Eh, in vain you are ... They ("friends"), as it turned out, really get information from the Runet, and not just get it, but also use it, incl. and as a guide to action. Just look, in those latitudes there will be "flying squads" of Samoyeds on dog sleds and snowmobiles (ships are not stupidly needed) - these will become ... yes

    I always suspected that we would not manage with the Arctic brigades alone (it was assumed, according to the media - 3), but coastal defense divisions are too much, with the alliance they were created in the 80s "hidden" under their guise conventional MSD, as a result of the signing of the weapons (the reduction concerned units of the ground forces) ...
    In Crimea, for example, the coastal defense division was also ....

    good news, the north needs to be defended, otherwise there have been a lot of people who want to go to our north with the barzometer turned on, and so the ardor will diminish among some exceptional and other "great northern powers"

    They don’t have neutrality. In my time, the Chukchi traveled to Alaska and the Aleuts to Chukotka on the ice of the Bering Sea. We knew this at the border, but by agreement with the Americans let them through. This is not a joke, it really was.

      Yes, I know. So, in principle, in many border regions - and this is normal practice. At least for locals on both sides of the border, they are not to blame for the fact that they live in the border zone. But by the way - bye.

    I am not an economist and I can not compare the cost of shipping ships along the Northern Sea Route considering the cost of operating icebreakers, ensuring safety, etc. from the traditional way through the Indian Ocean and Suez ... No wonder the Chinese gathered the Thai channel to dig. And they just don’t let the money go ... Therefore, I would like to see the economic feasibility of the project ...

    And from whom is it necessary to protect the NSR? Are ships drowned or captured there, or can someone come from the north?

      Do not ask. And if you ask, then in a whisper. Your comment is the very last one, but it contains the only reasonable simple question. Do not ask him, otherwise he will make the brain out of the guys.
      So, only in a whisper: the king is naked.

        The answer is:
        The goal of the United States is to create a military threat to Russia from the North — this is the minimum program. The Pentagon plans to launch dozens of cruisers and destroyers carrying Tomahawk cruise missiles and Aegis missile defense systems on the Northern Sea Route. Onboard each are 90 universal vertical start installations. The type of missiles varies from the tasks assigned to the ship. The Aegis missile defense system can shoot down Russian ICBMs launched from mine launchers and nuclear submarines on ascending trajectories. Tomahawk cruise missiles have a range of 2200 km and from the Northern Sea Route can hit almost the entire territory of Russia, including Moscow, Volgograd, Chelyabinsk, Novosibirsk, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, etc.
        Well, the maximum program is a rejection of Siberia from Russia, followed by the collapse of the whole of Russia. Our media outlets write about the SMP mainly as a transit route from Murmansk to Vladivostok. But the overwhelming number of vessels on the highway do not make through flights, but carry cargo to Siberia and back.

        And this is serious!

          What passions did you tell before going to bed. What a minimum program, what a maximum program is atomic warfare. Now I won’t fall asleep. Cruise missiles from the Northern Sea Route in Moscow and even along Volgograd. Aegis missile defense systems that shoot down our missiles. Apocalypse, however.
          And I already decided. Sorry, wrong.

    The best way to prepare for coastal defense would be to maintain the life of coastal villages, moorings and airfields with them. The population catches fish, the Northern Sea Route serves, fossils, if any, it produces. From purely military preparations, deploy communications and surveillance nodes, and prepare the infrastructure for the reception of weapons and people. In short, there is no burden on the military budget. If necessary, transfer troops and place them in warm apartments, and take civilians out on return flights. And keeping divisions on the coast of the Arctic Ocean in peacetime is stupid.
