Defense Ministry to offer civil carriers "stealth contracts"

30
In the event of war or foreign operations, transport companies will transport Russian military goods under "stealth contracts", according to News.




To this end, the Ministry of Defense has developed a new regulation for working with private carriers: contracts with them will be processed in an expedited manner under a simplified procedure, such agreements will be completely classified.

It is expected that the relevant decree of the Government of the Russian Federation will be adopted soon.

“The new rules for the purchase of transport services should provide the necessary efficiency of military transport in special circumstances. This scheme will be used in case of threats to the military security of Russia. It is also used to supply Russian troops participating in peacekeeping operations outside the country. The right to purchase transport services under the simplified procedure will be received by the Minister of Defense and the Director of the Federal Service of National Guard Forces, ”the newspaper writes referring to the military department.

The Defense Ministry says that the new order will not require additional expenses from the federal budget. The cost of "stealth contracts" should not exceed the costs of similar contracts concluded by the standard procedure.

The Russian army has long been using the services of civilian carriers. When conducting large-scale exercises for the transfer and regrouping of troops, a large number of vehicles are involved under outsourcing agreements. The Ministry of Defense also uses the services of a civilian aviation - in particular, for the transport of goods and personnel to Sakhalin,
Viktor Murakhovsky, the editor of the magazine Arsenal of the Fatherland, told the newspaper.

In his opinion, ensuring secrecy is extremely important for covert transportation of troops and supplies.

The movement of army goods is constantly analyzed by foreign intelligence services. The military is aware of this, so they systematically take measures to protect this information. Even in peacetime, the relevant documentation is in the closed access. In the case of air travel, transport aircraft shut off the transponders so that the route cannot be traced. In the period of danger, the importance of secrecy increases even more,
said the expert.

      In Syria, another thing was confirmed: there was no hope for civil carriers. For hot spots, the country needs its own Shipping Command.

    Yeah, apparently they tested these Stealth Contracts on decommissioned Turkish Stealth bulk carriers. Massively participating in the Syrian Express! A shame.

      A shame.

      What's the shame? Eight civil vessels were purchased (planned) from Turkey, with their subsequent enrollment in the auxiliary fleet of the Russian Navy. Russian crews. Yes, due to the increase in the number of goods sent to Syria, they felt a lack of transport. It would really be a shame if they didn’t take any measures and the transportation would be at risk.

        The fleet needs to be financed and developed, including the civilian fleet, under its own Flag. And do not buy up in the confusion - 70 years of construction. Purchase of a ship from Ukraine (country of aggressor laughing ) through Mongolia - generally a joke!

          Why bother so ??? it’s better to add “stealth contract” clauses - “in which case, if the rooster bites, solve problems as they arrive” “maybe we will quickly find carriers of reluctant sanctions that are not fearful” Admiral Chubais.

      It was an answer in the style of Bader - very weighty and half a meter past. ©
      Since when did the ship under the flag of the auxiliary fleet become civil carrier? On the Syrian Express, only ships sailing under the flag of the Navy go, which do not care about sanctions and which cannot be stopped and inspected.

      On lines like the Syrian, civil carriers cannot be used at all. Let me remind you that the whole saga with the Syrian express ship began with the fact that a civilian vessel chartered for the transport of helicopters to Syria was simply denied insurance. And then there were threats that the companies in Europe whose ships would be seen in shipments to Syria would close the ports of Europe and the USA.

    Attracting “civilians” to military logistics is often often inevitable .. But then how to ensure: 1) cargo secrecy and 2) to solve the problem of “accessibility” when a Russian trading or chartered foreign “flag” is outside our jurisdiction? If secrecy can be solved by including “lookers” in the crew, then with the second it’s more difficult ..

      Allocate a destroyer to accompany the cargo ship.

        Convoying is good ... But then what is the point of “secreting” contracts? After all, everyone sees: who, where and in whose interests is transporting ..

      Unfortunately, protection from searches today is solved only in one way - by including the vessel in the Navy. Other methods of guarantee do not give.

    "The Ministry of Defense assures that the new procedure will not require additional costs from the federal budget"...

    Mura-crap is complete and absolutely not thought out ...
    To want (Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation) does not mean to receive (timely transport services on time and to the extent necessary) ...
    It is one thing to deliver military supplies in a peaceful environment, and others in times of military danger (and even worse) ...
    Foreign companies will not take this step ... But ours, Soviet-Russian, how many in general in reality ??? Even what supposedly is Russian, and then flies under the flags ... Transcarpathia and the Republic of Chad ... lol
    Again their Wishlist rang ahead ... And the bureaucracy will remain, and the money - which the carrier will ask for - will NOT be allocated on time (THIS is stopudovo, THIS is Russia, baby !!!) ...
    No need to do stupid things ... You need to think and solve the problems of rebuilding your own sea, river, aviation fleet ... Moreover, on a double basis, both commercial and state ... So that the state does not depend on private owners ... soldier hi

    But they cannot be mobilized under market conditions. In the USSR, even all departmental vehicles and road equipment were registered with the military enlistment offices and were periodically attracted to various events.

    In some cases, a stealth contract really can not do, you never know what can be in the container. Obviously, the protection of such goods will be carried out by PMCs under the same stealth contracts. The main thing is to accustom our "potential friends" to this so that they are tired of figuring out who is swimming where and where.

    In general, the scheme worked out at the Russian PMCs in Syria will be applied. You’re boiling a little, immediately the Defense Ministry and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs are yelling that these are private mercenaries who died of their own free will to Russia laughing Well, who is the first in suicide bombers that the country will abandon? bully

    Ministry of Defence will offer civil carriers "stealth contracts"

    ... once obligated soldier
    At the initial stage of the conflict, in March 1962, Soviet ships secretly delivered about 400 tanks, 40 fighters, and radar installations to the island in several calls. The troops were planned to be transferred by civilian vessels of the Ministry of the Navy of the USSR. The fact that they didn’t just want to “play with muscles” but were seriously preparing for war is evidenced by the total number of the deployed group of troops: it amounted to 50 personnel and up to 874 civilian personnel; in addition, it was necessary to transport over 3000 tons of material and technical equipment.

      In the USSR, the entire fleet was state-owned, and now a private zoo with the flags of "banana" countries, bank accounts on exotic islands and owners with "low social responsibility.

      So in those days, the civilian fleet of the USSR was, firstly, state, and, secondly, mobilized. In fact, the Soviet shipping companies were the command of maritime transport under the civil flag, containing on the balance sheet sometimes not very commercially profitable, but tactically justified ships (such as excessively high-speed skaters). smile

    In the event of war, vehicles simply have to be confiscated and mobilized, otherwise cunning businesses will take out a neutral rag and steal it.
