Navy to begin the formation of replaceable crews

This year, the Russian Navy will begin the formation of replaceable crews, which, if necessary, will be sent to ships serving in the distant sea and ocean zone, the newspaper reports News.

Navy to begin the formation of replaceable crews

It is planned that on each navy one reserve crew will be created.

According to the military, the innovation is connected with the complexity of the tasks facing the Navy: “the Russian fleet is returning to the World Ocean”. Seafarers have to perform multi-month campaigns in order to demonstrate the flag, "while due to the objective shortage of surface ships of the main classes, the task is to ensure the almost continuous operation of the existing equipment." And attracting reserve crews will allow sailors to give rest.

According to the naval expert Dmitry Boltenkov, today many surface ships, for example, amphibious assault ships, can be at sea for up to a year, and this is a very large load on sailors. Therefore, the idea to create a backup crew.

Six months served - and in the plane, on rest to families. And reservists carry out the task further. Thus it is possible to ensure the continuous operation of ships. That is what submariners have always done. We have one or two more submarines in each submarine division,
said the expert.

It is assumed that most of the year reservists will undergo intensive training ashore using simulators. In addition, it is planned to train some reserve combat crews on ships in duplicate mode - in turn with full-time specialists.

    The correct and rational decision. It is hoped that the equipment will not fail, working in this mode.

    Tartus will be brought to mind and some of the ships will receive a permanent "residence permit" there. Anyway, it’s cheaper to transfer crews than to drive ships from base to base for this purpose ..

    We l / s stronger than steel. They can serve as much as they say without a salary, and then as many more. Hang out for months in the seas. But alas, the technique. The resource is not rubber and delaying repairs is infinitely impossible. And given how many years our BDK pr 775, 30 years or more. Low bow to the designers and operators.

      Crews for 775 are formed and not yesterday. But who will trust them to get rid of the pier.

    The main thing is that reservists take care of the equipment. Terrible thing temporary workers. They came, and after them at least a flood. So no technology is enough for them.
