The Finns were alarmed by the tests of the reconnaissance vessel "Ivan Hurs"

Finnish military experts were alarmed by the tests of the newest Russian reconnaissance ship Ivan Hurs passing in the Baltic. They believe that the communications ship, as the ship is officially called, can not only conduct electronic intelligence, but also suppress the GPS navigation signals of NATO missiles. This is reported by the largest Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat.

The Finns were alarmed by the tests of the reconnaissance vessel "Ivan Hurs"

However, Petteri Lalu, a professor at the National University of Defense of Finland, believes that "Ivan Khurs" is intended primarily to collect data on the exchange of information between the armed forces of other countries, as well as to learn the characteristics of radio-electronic equipment. However, he does not exclude that Russian designers are developing a system to create interference with rockets.

It is possible that the "Ivan Khurs" and the ship of the same class have such radio countermeasure systems. However, weapons systems that use GPS, make it resistant to interference, and it is impossible to influence inertial navigation missiles
- quotes the publication Petteri Lalu.

He is also confident that the reconnaissance ship will not interfere with the testing in the Baltic Sea.

Recall, the reconnaissance ship of the 18280 project "Ivan Khurs" is the first serial ship in the series. The communications vessel was laid in 2013 and launched in May 2017.

The design of the communications vessel has incorporated the characteristics of a variety of shipboard life support systems, including the cost-effectiveness and operational characteristics of the ship's power industry, which makes it possible to have the required autonomy of navigation. Most of the management processes of standard technical means and airborne armaments are automated.
- informs the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

The ship’s displacement is about four thousand tons. The length is about one hundred meters. Cruise range over 8 000 nautical miles at speed in 16 knots. The crew of the sea reconnaissance is 131 people, reports "RG-Force"

          Not a fact, with the current "program" of the construction of the Navy, in general, the "salad" with numerous types of projects is worse than under the USSR. There are so many types of corvettes ..

    They alarmed the Americans! Or rather, they gave reason to put pressure on the satellites from Suomi, so that they, in turn, began to resent ...
    They are pulling Finland into NATO by hook or by crook!

      I remember there were exercises in the 80s that were as close as possible to the military ... Tu-95 flew over the airfield at an extremely low altitude - deployed electronic warfare equipment - everything stopped - RSP, P-35, even the light on the KDP went out ...

    "They believe that a communications ship, the so-called ship’s name, is capable of not only conducting electronic intelligence, but also suppress nato's GPS navigation signals. It is reported by the largest Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat. "
    So the Finns are not yet part of NATO.
    Or I'm wrong? recourse

    Calm down, neighbors, lived good neighbors during the times of the USSR, let us continue to be neighbors, and not quarrels. In the Baltic, unfortunately, there are still many neighbors besides you, whom the main "partner" because of the Atlantic incites to hostility with us.

    Finnish military experts are alarmed
    Well guys, what did you want? Are you being pulled by the ears in NATO, which in the Baltic states is like at home and at the same time Russia should not oppose anything to this? Of course, this doesn’t concern Finns as much as Americans.

    Last year the Finns had an adequate calm people, they are not interested in politics at all, but they remember the history of 1940 well.

    Is Finland already in the NATO bloc? What did their NATO concerns worry about?
    In excerpts, however, a pure statement, without emotions. The main thing is that the Finns should be aware that non-aligned status for them will provide more security than an alliance with NATO. Let them recall their alliance with fascist Germany and how it ended. On the other hand, they succeeded in cunning.

    Missiles from Finland, instead of Moscow, will fly to Helsinki, as was the case with US ships which instead of the port of Odessa ended up in the Krasnodar Territory.

      Hmm .... it also became interesting. Why did the Finns suddenly worry about the safety of target designation for NATO missiles?
