Pacific Fleet ships for the first time to take part in the Rimpak-2012 exercise

Ships of the Pacific fleet for the first time they will take part in the large-scale international exercise Rimpak-2012.

In June, a detachment of ships consisting of the Admiral Panteleyev BOD, the Boris Butoma tanker and the Fotiy Krylov ocean rescuer will leave the Southern Primorye in the direction of the Hawaiian Islands.

According to the organizers, during the exercise, the interaction of foreign naval forces on a wide range of international naval cooperation issues will be worked out.

Rimpak exercises have been held since 1971. Periodicity - once every two years. The first such exercise involved the ships of the United States, Canada and Australia.

The current teaching will be already 23. This time 45 ships and vessels from 22 countries will take part in it.

Earlier, only observers from the Russian Pacific Fleet were present at such exercises. This year a decision was made on the participation of the Pacific Fleet ships in the Rimpack-2012 program.

The active phase of the exercise will take place in the Pacific from July 11 to August 2.

    Good news .. We must learn ... But with the tanker, our naval commanders are at great risk laughing The Americans drown them or at least ram them .. It's dangerous all the same .. Although the rescuer for this case also went to the exercises laughing

      I don’t understand why we are learning to fight on the side of America? We are already so friends. Somehow they quickly forgot about the death of Kursk.

      Yes, what to say. Remember the radio talks of the 7th fleet. When the American sailors caught the Italian Lighthouse with a ship and rocked between saba who should give way lol laughing

    Soully neighing - thanks to the author for positiff !!!!
    It turns out SiFi Hollywood blockbusters and in the minds of the highest military of Russia are able to arouse adequate thoughts .....
    Our brutal admirals and generals need to go to modern cinema more often - they have come up with everything for them for a long time .... you can even not strain your forehead.

    Our admirals were at the premiere screening of the picture "Sea Battle" and finally saw the exercises "Rimpak" with their own eyes :)))))))

    Although the Navy and 3,5 walking ocean ships, it’s great that they go and study! I believe that the time will come and the fleet will become as it was, real, OKEANSKIY. I wish you success!

    The enemy must be known in person. Better than in exercises, you can study it only in war. Seven feet under the keel to our sailors.

    Sharing experiences is great. And what exactly will ours be doing there? After all, the rest work out the interaction, and at the same time use their control, interaction and communication systems. We are not allowed to them. Whose engaged then? Or so, such as the world to see, to show yourself.

    judging by the solid minuses, the majority had a wandering troll, probably an American or Baltic one.
