National Interest: British destroyer is unlikely to frighten Moscow

70
For the first time since the Cold War, the British sent a warship to the Black Sea. The purpose of this step is to send a signal to Russia: “do not invade Ukraine”. But should Moscow take this signal seriously, the “National Interest” observer wonders.


National Interest: British destroyer is unlikely to frighten Moscow


“The last time, reminds The National Interest, the British invaded Crimea in 1854, when the Anglo-French expeditionary corps seized Sevastopol. This time we are talking only about one destroyer HMS Diamond, on board of which there will be about 60 marines. This warship will lead the NATO tactical group and help defend the 650 British soldiers participating in secret exercises in Ukraine, ”the article cites the channel. RT.

Although the destroyers of the type 45 and are the newest acquisition of the Royal Navy, but their engines fail when the ships are in warm waters, the publication said.

“Fortunately for the Royal Navy, the Black Sea is not in the tropics,” the author says ironically.

Earlier, British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon said:
The UK sends a clear message that we are committed to defending democracy around the world and support the sovereignty of Ukraine, its independence and territorial integrity.


"Meanwhile," it is unlikely that Putin and his government will take this step of the British as a special threat, because in military terms, one ship with 60 marines on board looks like a purely symbolic gesture, "- said the columnist.

If Russia’s containment turns into war, then this “destroyer, even as part of a NATO tactical group, will not last long off the Russian coast, which has military aircraft, coastal defense missiles and near which there are a lot of Black Sea ships fleet”, The article says. Also, he will not be able to help Kiev in the event of a “land-based Russian invasion”.

According to the author, “Even as a symbol, one destroyer does not send a particularly strong signal that Britain is ready to fight with Russia for the sake of Ukraine’s salvation.”

Nevertheless, it is of interest that the British cruise to the Black Sea is part of the “more decisive” British policy: “At present, the Royal Air Force planes strike an IG (banned in the Russian Federation) in Iraq and Syria, the British military train Ukrainian soldiers, thousands of military personnel this summer will be deployed to Estonia and Poland, and Typhoon fighters to Romania, ”the article says.

In addition, the Typhoon fighters will take part in a joint exercise with Japan, and aircraft carriers such as the Queen Elizabeth, the construction of which should be completed in 2020, will be deployed in the South China Sea.

All this is a rather serious feat, considering that the composition of the Royal Navy has decreased to 19 destroyers and frigates, the composition of the Royal Air Force has also decreased, and in the British army there are less than 80 thousands of military personnel,

          They were not bothered yet to send signals. Honestly already sick. By God! Either Stoltenberg will send, then Bridlav will follow. Now, Fallon also signed up for the signalmen. Or signaling. And everyone strives to scare. Fear to catch up. Ursula from Germany with her Go.mo.seks not yet signaled for an hour? It will be really terrible there, unbearable. And in fact they really think that they will scare. belay

          In this post about the destroyer, the most interesting part is 650 Britons secretly doing something in Ukraine. Are they preparing a new assault on New Russia there? And if you have to drape, then transport off the coast, and let the rest burn with a blue flame ...

    National Interest: British destroyer is unlikely to frighten Moscow

    I can’t agree here. I think it will scare, and how! It was 15 years ago in St. Petersburg. Then, with a friendly visit, an English warship docked (I don’t remember which one). Right next to Lieutenant Schmidt’s bridge. And the English sailors roamed along the promenade. I was surprised to see that there were many female persons among them. That's right, because language does not turn to call them women. Scary all as a selection! Horror! And I doubt that since then the British gene pool has changed for the better. Therefore, of course, they will scare Moscow and everyone ...
    ps Guys, love our women - they are all beautiful!

      Everywhere where the Catholic Inquisition frolic, or, in this case, its Anglican counterpart, there is a shortage of beautiful women. Under the distribution of witch-hunts, the most beautiful ones usually fell (well, an honest Christian cannot become so pretty without the help of witchcraft and the devil himself). Here is the gene pool of beauty and povybil, in accordance with the teachings of Darwin.
      Well, again, the specifics of the profession. Beautiful will arrange personal life in a civilian, and ugly ones to get their portion x .. simple feminine happiness, they are looking for him where there are many unaccounted hungry men. Well, the truth is that with the growth in the west of non-traditional orientations and identifications, such tactics can fail.

    full of ships of the Black Sea Fleet

    Recently, attacks on the insignificant potential of the World Cup in the region suddenly stopped and suddenly such curtsies. It is clear that after the Turkish coup, the Turkish Navy thinned out de facto (some corvettes and destroyers were removed from the balance sheet) due to the thrown out topic of the coup pilots of the admirals, who "took" part of the ships in an unknown direction, but this obvious stupidity did not last long as a motive. Now the layout of the theater has changed, especially after a demonstration of the capabilities of the Caspian flotilla. In the end, everything can happen as with Cook, only now this destroyer will be met and escorted by Varshavyanka, shelling him with waste.

    It has engines from Rolls-Royce, which produces aircraft engines. It can take off from fright. The Type 45 destroyers are equipped with two advanced WR-21 gas turbine engines with an intercooler and a regenerative (IHP) heat exchanger, which provide significant savings in fuel and space on the ship. The recuperator recovers energy by working from exhaust gases, which increases the efficiency of fuel use. Ecology, their mother is in hot water.!

    The British will soon have a very balanced Navy of the open ocean. 45 along with two aircraft carriers and new frigates. Air group f35, there are airplanes. It seems like new helicopters make drills. 45 is considered the best in air defense, for anti-submarine warfare new frigates. So in the open ocean after the United States, they will be. Near the French, but they only have one aircraft carrier and less destroyers. China is building aircraft carriers, but which planes will be there? Afar radars on destroyers next to samsons will stand? What about rockets? With AGS at the end site? Soon. So guys this will be the second after the US fleet in the next decade

Helicopters should give for 2 years, I always wondered why they wouldn’t make a convertiplane. Inertia and so onservatism chtoli. Here, according to frigates, cheap and massive (on the scale of the British of course) seem to have decided on a replacement 23. If no force majeure then in 3-5 years they will take on a form very dangerous

Japan can put on its helicopter carriers f35, redid the deck. The rest is deaf. For destroyers, only Japan has normal. And then the radar is not afar. For low-flying targets, it works poorly as aliberki. Russia has good divers. On the surface dull. The Chinese have no flyers and destroyers with air defense similar to the 80s of the last century. Also the Indians. Technologically, China and India have no analogues f35 and daring.

              These aircraft carriers are still under construction. At the moment, the Royal Navy's strike forces have provided 13 frigates of type 23 armed with harpoons and 7 diesel-electric submarines with the same harpoons. The British fleet was on my list thanks to strategic submarine missile carriers.

Perhaps the British are on the American path trying to put elements of a missile defense system on ships.

                In 2020, aviks will be. F35 underestimate not worth it. Given its capabilities. Superhornets just do not change them. This is shock power. No one has any analogues except the USA and is not expected. Of course, this is a stripped-down version, without refueling and a helicopter drill. But this has nothing to oppose. Aircraft modified and run in. Air defense is better than dering and vliberki will not give. Close are the brothers from France in the face of the horizon, but it seems there are only three of them. Plo 23 will cope with it and the replacement is on. With submarine forces, they also hold the level. Debt discussion on afar may turn out, let's not here. Over-the-horizon with inconspicuous not very cope. But Samson located so high few will kill. The number of China against f35 in the open ocean and with obsolete pro.

                      What kind of injustice? Why can you be without specifics, but I can’t?

                      At what distance does the radar of destroyers 52 or 55 of the Chinese Navy identify it, for example?

                      So you tell us this and you raised this question.

                      Is this the whole cunning of the Americans - without an engine, without an expensive stealth cover, have you forgotten anything?

                        Yes, it is unfair of me. The EPR of the superhornet is 1 m2, while f35 is 0,05 m2 in the frontal projection. Theoretically identify and naturally detect Hornet can at a distance of 250 km, then f35 only at 50 km. In the decimeter range. The difference is very significant

                        Well, in the event of a collision with w15, the f35 round-robin ols will leave no chance for the enemy. Probably worth discussing about ranged

                Chinese destroyers are based on the technology of 80-90 years. How soon they will see f35 big question. And from the pro based on the c300 against low-flying targets .... I'm afraid it will be too late. Also india

                  The Americans have placed too much emphasis on invisibility to the detriment of other characteristics, whatever the buzz is for them, but it is wonderful for us.

                    So how soon will they see? In what frequency range does the radar detect 55 destroyers ??? Probably much later than Hornet.

                      The F-35 has the advantage if both planes are hunting freely, but this is a hypothetical situation, a spherical horse in a vacuum. But one hundred Chinese planes will go in bulk to an American aircraft carrier (or any other target that needs to be defended at all costs), and they will need to be stopped as they say, all F-35s will die, but the enemy will not be stopped.

      Given the recent whining in the press about the noisiness of Her Majesty’s ships, this will be a contrasting target for 636.3. First 3m-54, then USET-80 and we can assume that the "Admiral Belgrano" avenged!

        Yes, I agree. But the contents of the lateworks are enough for him.
        The first month of autonomy ended, and for the second week the blind race for the largest and most powerful aircraft carrier lasted. The “silence” mode was abruptly replaced by the full speed, then again drift on the depth stabilizer without a move, a change in depth and again a race. And all this is on readiness number one: neither eat properly, nor wash, or sleep. People are completely exhausted, latches are full, fresh water is running out - all these are consequences of the silence regime.
        And now, finally, a reward for perseverance, here it is, the materialization of the dream of the commander and the entire crew. A boat on the depth stabilizer without a move, everyone is silent, straining, and the acoustics catch their group target with their sensitive electronic and human ears, and in the middle there is something that can easily be classified as an aircraft carrier! Gee-s !!! Estimated, counted - the main goal will pass by ten to twelve cable. Here it is, the dream of youth and all subsequent life! Well, why, why, why on the planet at this moment the world ?! Ahhh! ..
        - Combat alert, torpedo attack! Do not use bells and chestnuts! All teams and reports - only by phone!
        “Well, scribe, it began,” escaped from the crew. - Beat the adversary.
        But the war is cold, time is peaceful, you cannot attack, even imitate the attack ... Of course, wait! The main thing is that the deputy and the special agent do not come to their senses, otherwise they will fly: it is not allowed! there is a directive! and in addition to the directive, they also have their own informers, that is, these ... informants. Who are they? In theory, they should be among the officers. Only telephoned combat posts and command posts are notified of combat alert, walking between compartments is forbidden ... and the target spurs itself for rapprochement with a thirty-node move, without changing course. Just about to fly by ... We must do something, somehow designate a torpedo attack, let them know that the Russian Ivan is not basting, and do not think about impunity ...
        - Boatswain, float to the periscope depth on the stabilizer.
        Teams - at least, all at a glance, everyone works, laying out one hundred percent.
        - Raise the periscope.
        The disheveled deputy with a special agent arrived in the central one. Look, in a hurry, they didn’t even manage to put a gloss on. Begin to slowly move into the atmosphere. The commander is to the periscope to avoid unnecessary questions. In about five minutes, the aircraft carrier will be on the beam. There he is, full of lights, taking planes, which means he will not change course. BIP produces data for firing - everything is on the machine. The commander from the periscope - to the phone:
        - Mineer! How long does it take to free the fourth and fifth devices from torpedoes? .. How much ?! Well, you ooh ... .... Five minutes! And to prepare these devices for shooting through the air! Clear?!
        Trying to intervene just about the situation, the deputy with a special officer was numb, like the admiralty anchors on the Neva embankment. There is a directive of the General Staff with a recommendation to avoid imitating combat attacks, which requires ensuring its own security, preventing collisions and bulk, and something else about the international situation ...
        The miner also jammed, and there was no clear answer "yes." Here are those here. Preparing, getting ready, and everything went to pi ... deja at party meetings. Yes, in wartime it’s easier: I entered the shooting data - and they are perfect! - and "Pli!" And here all the devices are loaded with combat torpedoes, all in full. True, it is possible to free two vehicles from torpedoes in case of emergency exit from a sunken boat. Well, free, time is running out ...
        Time is running out, the aircraft carrier is about to catch up with the boat, and the miner's “is” will not sound at all, and the deputy and special officer will soon recover.
        Then the mechanic - found, Christmas trees, a way out! - The largest opposition and secret mocker of the commanding utopias. He had long been asking for “good” to purge the latrines (only the doctor’s in the isolation ward remained empty), but the commander always forbade - the purge sound unmasked in a swoop. The mechanic cursed and claimed that we were soon taught the smell even in the Pentagon.
        - ... miner! ...
        “Dragging the kndir,” the mechanic interrupted, “I am ready to shoot the latrine!” The effect is the same, but the benefits are greater: there is no need to relieve pressure from the compartments, especially since it is already excessive and the air consumption for this business is less. And there will be no violation of the directive. BUT?
        The thought itself is not bad, but ... somehow it is ... and there is no other way out ...
        “Well, that’s a completely different matter,” the deputy, almost out of his stupor, turned to the special agent who was starting to leave.
        “Okay, fur, convinced,” the commander said. - Blow out the latrines on command.
        And himself - to the periscope.
        In the rare ruptures of the clouds, a quarter of the moon was visible. The lunar path escaped towards the carrier, approaching inexorably, like the collapse of capitalism.
        - Mechanic, prepare a turbine for giving the course. What is the matter with the latrine?
        “The turbine is ready, the latrine apparatuses of the second and third compartments are ready to fire,” the mechanic reported, “there is a proposal to lower the periscope: Kingston purge the latrines on the same frame with the periscope, not to pollute the optics for a short time ...”
        “Got it, got it, mechanic ... BIP!” Report shooting data with two "products"! - I listened to the data, checked the periscope and gave the command to lower it.
        - Mechanic, oats!
        - There is a tov!
        - Pli!
        - Got it! - answered the mechanic. - The second and third, blow out the latrines, do not spare the air!
        After some, very short time, a characteristic smell went into the central one, and everyone turned their noses.

    Nevertheless, it is of interest that the British cruise to the Black Sea is part of the “more decisive” British policy: “At present, the Royal Air Force planes strike an IG (banned in the Russian Federation) in Iraq and Syria, the British military train Ukrainian soldiers, thousands of military personnel this summer will be deployed to Estonia and Poland, and Typhoon fighters to Romania, ”the article says.
    In addition, the Typhoon fighters will take part in a joint exercise with Japan, and aircraft carriers such as the Queen Elizabeth, the construction of which should be completed in 2020, will be deployed in the South China Sea.


    It's time to send the "Peter the Great" to cut circles around the British Isles, along with a couple of 11356 frigates with Calibers. Maybe the British realize that they need to keep their armed forces with them, and not distribute democracy all over the world.

    Well, now we’ll check the British, how are they with the nerves, will they not write off the reports? And if God forbid what conflict, then the Briton will not last afloat for about 20 minutes, so his rattling of weapons is for his reassurance, but how they determine that they are in the sights of our missiles, here we look at the nature of the British.
