The crew of the frigate of the Black Sea Fleet "Admiral Grigorovich" completed the execution of tasks as part of the permanent grouping of the Navy in the Mediterranean Sea and arrived in Sevastopol. The total duration of the cruise of the ship exceeded four months.
- he said.

The Admiral Essen ship of the same type joined the grouping of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean Sea to replace Admiral Grigorovich, he began performing tasks on July 10. Both frigates are armed with the Caliber cruise missiles, which were used to strike at terrorists in Syria.

"Admiral Grigorovich" - the main frigate of the sea zone of the project 11356, "Admiral Essen" - the first serial.

The ships of this series are built at the Baltic Shipbuilding Plant (PSZ, part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation). They have a displacement of the order of 4 thousand tons, speed - 30 knots, autonomy of swimming - 30 days. The frigates are armed with Caliber-NK and / or Onyx cruise missiles, the Shtil-1 self-defense missile system, the 190 caliber of millimeters, the anti-aircraft artillery, the rocket bomb system, the torpedoes, and the helicopter can not carry the helicopter, the anti-aircraft artillery, the A-100 rocket. 27 (or Ka-31).

It is expected that the third frigate of the Admiral Makarov series, after participating in the Main Naval Parade scheduled for July at 30 in Kronstadt, will also go to the intersectional crossing to the Black Sea Fleet.

At present, the fourth and fifth frigates of this project are at different stages of construction at PSZ.

During the long-distance march, the Admiral Grigorovich struck Caliber cruise missiles at Islamic State militants in Syria.

      Congratulations on the successful completion of the trip and the return to their home harbor. soldier

    Probably like Essen recharged, they will smoke a couple of three days on the beach and again on a hike. Yes, of course, there are very few such and similar watchdogs in our fleets, at the same Black Sea Fleet at least four five more things would be more fun, otherwise these two are able to ride there.

      Well Makarov must pass in the fall. Next year will come for sure. But with the second three, although they decided to finish building it for themselves, it will take a long time to wait. Not the fact that by 2020 they will finish building and come.

        Yes, Butakov’s maximum will not be completed, Kornilov’s will wait even longer. Patrol ships of the 22160 project will help out at the Black Sea Fleet and all along the southern direction (and maybe even 22800 will help), so they will pull the strap, until the 20's, five will be able to put into operation. My concern is a little different. 11356 was designed and it was supposed to be used by and large in the Black Sea. And it seems to me from this that the armament of the ship was laid. Now when we have a base in the Mediterranean, this ammunition is not enough. We at the Black Sea Fleet now need ships of a type closer to 22350. How to form ammunition from the main caliber on 11356? Suppose a pair of missiles should be anti-submarine on any one, but it would be better, of course, four. Another pair of anti-convulsive is better than the same four, the rest are 3M-14 on coastal targets. And how does all this fit into 8 launchers? Or carry weapons of transport all the time? Plus, for effective counteraction to modern aviation, an air defense system with a decent range is needed, the Calm range is clearly not enough. 11356 does not have a towable GAS. And yet 11356 is a pure guard, so let him go about his direct business, why impose uncharacteristic tasks on him.
        Yes, dreaming is not harmful, and shipbuilding capacities in the country play a key role. What will we expect at the Black Sea Fleet more powerful ships, or maybe someday we will recreate a separate Mediterranean squadron?

          I'm not even sure. that Kornilov will be completed for themselves. Butakov, in fact, is only waiting for the gas turbine engine, Istomin is in a rather high degree of readiness. Tch there the whole problem is only in the GTD. Kornilov in a fairly low degree of construction. Is it worth it to finish building for yourself when you can lay 22350? And it will certainly be built as much. request
          As for the BC - yes for the frigate is not enough. If the mrk of 8 missiles is quite normal, they will not let him shoot anymore. PM MRK shoots 8 rockets and tears claws. That frigate - the ship is more versatile. Most likely, ammunition will be formed from a specific task. Well, or behind the weapons transport will be in the distance. request
          In principle, to counter submarines, there is RBU-6000, since you can load all cells with the same type according to the situation. If you need a strike on the ground - 3M-14, if on ships - onyx or even zircons in the future. request
          So the Mediterranean squadron and so created. And to assign ships to it permanently - so we have so few ships, so as to split them even more. Yes, and she will be vulnerable too. It is one thing when ships enter or are temporarily based there, and another when they are constantly based. It will be suicide bombers in case of anything. Nearby are a bunch of NATO bases and two American fleets - in Naples and Bahrain. request

    Apparently, the PMTO in Tartus is still unable to provide full coastal service and ammunition replenishment for ships of all types. "Admiral Essen" jumped into Sevas to literally "have a drink of tea" and again to Middle-earth. soldier

    the only really combat-capable surface ships for the entire Navy are 11356 ....... the old men, led by Petya, can’t stand it anymore, and the weapons are outdated ..... endless breakdowns and repairs ........ a in order to work without a frenzy in the middle-earth, we urgently need Makarov, who has been yelling in the Baltics for salons and St. Petersburg shows for a whole year ....... and you can test a new missile on the Black Sea in breaks from military service in the middle ground

      A new rocket, it is also a change in the BIOS. That is, unscrew the unnecessary and fasten what the doctor ordered and to suit Grigorovich and Essen. In between trips, this is not real
