The large landing ship (BDK) of the Russian Navy "Azov", after passing the Black Sea straits, entered the Mediterranean waters, local Internet sites reported on Thursday.


Syrian express works! BDK "Azov" entered the Mediterranean Sea


According to Istanbul bloggers, the warship of the Black Sea fleet "Azov" goes to the Syrian port of Tartus, where the base of logistics of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean Sea is located.

It is noted that this is the fourth trip of the ship to Syria this year.

In April, the BDK Minsk (5 April), Nikolai Filchenkov (13 April) and Orsk (15 and 25 April) passed through the Black Sea straits in the Mediterranean.

From the beginning of the year, BDK Azov, Alexander Otrakovsky, Minsk, Nikolay Filchenkov, Orsk and the transport ship Kyzyl-60 made journeys to Syria with goods.

According to foreign media reports, the BDK and vessels of the auxiliary fleet of the Russian Navy, as well as chartered vessels, are participating in an operation called “Syrian Express” to deliver cargo for the Russian air group at the Hmeymim airbase near Latakia, the Navy’s logistics base in Tartus and the Syrian government army , Interfax reports

          I had to go out on such an artillery regiment in the Barents Sea. Sea ship good - not MTL with howitzer No. ... And, with regard to the lack of new BDKs, the government knows better what to build: the BDK or the Yeltsin Center. And in Moscow there was no housing, people in communal apartments and wooden barracks lived ... belay We went to Lexus, but lived in barracks ... lol Closed budget items, who will let them see? At first they lost all friends, buddies and allies on the social camp. Behind them, two true allies of Russia were bled. But still I can’t understand: for the country, the building of Gazprom, stuck together on the "public heritage" is more important than the bookmarks of the BDK or RTO? request

          but how happy the characters were in VO in 14 when they didn’t pass the Mistral to us, and now they wrinkle their foreheads about dying the last, since we don’t take civilians, it means we can’t do this, maybe they need to be escorted by the military as sanctions against Syria for arms supplies in force and they can be delayed in the Mediterranean

                      The surrender of "Ivan Gren" is the surrender of the lead ship of the series. What is more important (and turned out to be a difficult) event than launching just another, one of many.
                      So, it is not so important when the head office needs to be modernized, the main thing is that the construction of the others in the series would be given a start (they can probably be built faster than the head office needs repair).

                        It turns out I missed everything. I admit my mistake.
                        Recently, there was an article at the VO about plans to replenish the Russian fleet, it talked about handing over the lead ship of the project, and, obviously, the next in the series. And then it turns out that the second ship will be the last.
                        It's a shame of course.

          Yes, they tried to carry by civil courts. But a civilian ship can be stopped, inspected, wrapped and even arrested. On suspicion of violation of all kinds of sanctions, etc. Turkey won even civilian aircraft landed and inspected. So we have to drive the BDK here. For who would risk risking a search?
          For some reason, it seems to me that a trip to the shores of a warring ally, albeit with a transport purpose, is a good preparation of personnel.

    It is finally necessary to build a displacement of 40 thousand tons (Udk type "Uosp") and not 4 thousand tons.

    We do not have NEW BDK. We can even stomp our feet or bubble with anger and indignation and frustration, but we have what we have. Alas.

    I had to go out on such an artillery regiment in the Barents Sea. Sea ship good - not MTL with howitzer No. ... And, with regard to the lack of new BDKs, the government knows better what to build: the BDK or the Yeltsin Center. And in Moscow there was no housing, people in communal apartments and wooden barracks lived ... belay We went to Lexus, but lived in barracks ... lol Closed budget items, who will let them see? At first they lost all friends, buddies and allies on the social camp. Behind them, two true allies of Russia were bled. But still I can’t understand: for the country, the building of Gazprom, stuck together on the "public heritage" is more important than the bookmarks of the BDK or RTO? request

    Fifth column to Magadan: on a tour trip !!!
