The ship of the Navy "Viktor Leonov" conducted reconnaissance at the largest US Navy base Norfolk

40
American TV channels continue to come out with "urgent" reports, which report on the actions of the Russian warship "Viktor Leonov". The reconnaissance ship of the Russian Navy moves along the eastern coast of the United States (approximately in 120 km from it - in international waters) at an average speed of about 10 nodes. FoxNews TV channel issues materials in which it reports on "the actions of the Russian ship, which are clearly contrary to the administration's statements about the possibility of dialogue with Russia."

The ship of the Navy "Viktor Leonov" conducted reconnaissance at the largest US Navy base Norfolk


On the same TV channel, it was announced that after reconnaissance off the coast of Delaware, the Russian Navy ship continued its journey to the state of Virginia (Virginia), where the largest US Navy base is located in Norfolk.

According to the American channel, the Russian warship "Viktor Leonov" "conducts a reconnaissance mission along the eastern coast of the United States, heading towards Havana (the capital of Cuba)."

The statements that the actions of the Russian ship "negate the opportunity for dialogue" look very strange, especially considering that the American reconnaissance ships are very frequent (uninvited) guests on the Russian coast - for example, in the Black Sea. Or, again, the whole thing is “exclusivity”: what is allowed to Jupiter, then ...

        The ship of the Navy "Viktor Leonov" conducted reconnaissance at the largest US Navy base Norfolk

        And what did he learn there?
        What is there 17 kilometers of berths with warships?

        "The harbor of a thousand ships." The world's largest naval base, whose countless marinas and docks stretch for 17 kilometers along the Atlantic coast.

        The staff of the Norfolk naval base provides more than 3000 marine operations per year related to mooring and sailing ships. Every six minutes, the Naval Station Norfolk airport takes off or lands in an aircraft.

        The area of ​​the naval base and port reaches 26 square. kilometers The depth of the fairway passes 13-14 meters, which allows for the basing of ships of all existing classes.

        At present, the Norfolk naval base is the home port for 75 warships of the US Navy, including: five Nimitz-type nuclear aircraft carriers, nine helicopter assault carriers, 29 missile cruisers and destroyers, and six atomic submarines and 15 transports of the Shipping Command.

          Can I start to get scared?
          And in fact, what is there to “Leonov” to do, if those berths and in Google are clearly visible. America diapers can still save - you look, come in handy .....

          Somehow it pisses me off when a mattress flag starts to scare me .... But the Cook sailors themselves still haven’t removed their trousers .... I personally didn’t have to communicate with admiral sailors, but American special forces of 20 years of seen. Moreover, on three continents. And he drank vodka with them, and saw the sparring in full contact, and he saw it in military affairs. No, I still can’t get scared ....

            Have you ever heard such a concept - radio engineering and radio intelligence.
            Again - the bottom topography and warning systems on the high seas - all this should be periodically monitored.

      for 20 years, the generation of Cold War witnesses has already changed; now they are like Seventh-day Adventists. Therefore, no one takes seriously their senile reasonable questions about why such a fuss about this scout, before this was commonplace. But no one hears them. They write articles about how to return to mutual greetings in the sky when the pilots of our bombers and their fighters meet, and vice versa. But everyone goggles in amazement and smiling tolerantly, they say the old weaves a lot. It seems that in the United States, society lived and bam! - Vegetables. Through one. As a friend of mine previously expressed the idea that the Americans created the MARVEL universe for themselves and are slowly dumping it there.

    They had a lot of interesting things for cruising our ships with the CER index (Charlie Charlie Bravo) along the western coast of the states.
    he himself served on this and even a book was published.

    The usual hysteria against the background of the arrival of Trump. There is nothing unusual in the fact that our communications vessels patrol areas near the states. Always, even in the most difficult times, OSNaz ships of the Navy carried combat duty off the coast of a potential enemy. The whole screech that was raised with the advent of the CER-175 is an attempt to once again do everything to prevent the Trump administration from starting any kind of dialogue. And for this, all measures are good.

    FoxNews hysteria is mainly for a different reason:
    It is noted with horror that the US Navy and carrier-based aircraft did not take any action with respect to the Russian Navy reconnaissance ship. According to the channel, in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of the United States, as many as four American ships were deployed. But their crews did not receive commands to suppress tracking equipment and intercept the signals of Viktor Leonov. Moreover, in the square where he was spotted, there were no American aircraft carriers! According to American military experts, this type of ship is designed to intercept radio communications, various kinds of communications, and to study sonar parameters.

      It’s like “why didn’t the aircraft carrier cover the coast from Leonov’s antennas with its mighty hull?”
      But their crews did not receive commands to suppress tracking equipment and intercept signals

    And these American insolents and talkers have the audacity to scream loudly that our one and only ship is off the coast of the United States ... Our country itself was surrounded by NATO bases, constantly conducting various exercises near our borders, provoking us, taking pictures against the backdrop of our fortresses .Nato ships are in the Black and Baltic Seas ... I have no words ... I would send hundreds of ships to the shores of the United States. During the times of the USSR, they did this and were not afraid of anyone. Scam, arrogant, arrogant, talkers, scandal

    One of the tenets of military science: always keep the enemy in suspense. After all, the State Department and the Pentagon’s statements that Russia has not been canceled by the US as its main adversary, therefore it’s not clear why they are dissatisfied, you need to rejoice - American soldiers are constantly training, constantly in a stressful state, tempering morale.
