In the US, the Russian icebreaker with the "Caliber" was called offensive weapons

The latest Russian icebreaker, Ivan Papanin, armed with Caliber cruise missiles, is not defensive, but offensive. This was stated by the commander of the U.S. Navy in Europe and Africa, Admiral James Foggo.


According to him, Russia is behaving aggressively in the Arctic, increasing offensive weapons. This also applies to new icebreakers, which are armed with Caliber cruise missiles. In addition, Moscow continues to build military bases in the Arctic region and deploy S-400 anti-aircraft systems there.

Russia aggressively approaches the Arctic. They recently presented the new Ivan Papanin icebreaker, which can carry Caliber cruise missiles. I have already asked this question several times and I will ask again: who puts the rockets on the icebreakers? Some countries put defensive weapons on their icebreakers, but Caliber is not defensive at all. weapon

- declared admiral.

Foggo drew attention to the need to create a strong fleet in the Arctic region, "to protect common interests and ensure the normal flow of trade flows."

The lead icebreaker of project 23550 Ivan Papanin was built at the Admiralty Shipyards Shipyard and launched last October. The ice class patrol ships (combat icebreakers) of project 23550 were developed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau (CMKB) as a replacement for the military icebreakers of project 21180, on which only one icebreaker, Ilya Muromets, was built and handed over to the fleet.

The vessel is capable of performing the tasks of a tugboat, patrol ship and an icebreaker. The ship is intended for the protection and monitoring of water resources in difficult ice conditions, escorting and towing detained vessels to the port, escorting and supporting support vessels, participating in rescue operations, transporting special cargoes.

The icebreaker is capable of speeds up to 18 knots. Displacement - about 8500 tons, length - over 100 m, width - about 20 m, sailing autonomy - about 70 days. Cruising range - 10 thousand nautical miles. An icebreaker can cross ice fields up to 1,7 meters thick.

The ship is armed with AK-176MA automatic artillery, and one multi-purpose helicopter will also be based on the ship. In addition, a place has been reserved for the rocket launcher on the icebreaker.

    Russian icebreaker with Caliber called offensive weapons

    If necessary - defensive, and if necessary, then offensive .... This is the business of the Russian fleet.
    And it is better to envy silently.

        Everything is relative. Take, for example, an ax. You can chop the adversary with a blade, you can heat the butt, but you can also disable the enemy with an ax, especially if you crank it up.
        And you can use the ax to build a hut with the edge and hide in it from enemies.

          From the point of view of the Americans, it is better not to have an ax at all, and order the construction of a hut from them. In debt, of course. And then pay off the debt forever.
          They will build a strong hut so that when they catch up with the enemies, we would sit in it and do not stick our nose out.

            Logically the same.
            From the point of view of the average commander of all US forces, strictly offensive are:
            1. All weapons classes of the same type as US weapons
            2. All classes and types of weapons that have no analogues in the United States.

        Jane must be included in the guide. When I went to the sea, I knew where on our fishing parachute, if anything, small baboons are installed. And now, if that is a 40-foot container on the deck and the fishing parade is turning into a “strategic destination” watchdog. Of course, this is a joke. every night the admiral dreams of Russian icebreakers hugging polar bears. The Polar Bears maternity hospital is located on our territory - Wrangel, obviously polar bears are “in the service of Shoigu.” If this goes further, sanctions will be imposed on polar bears in the states or they need to tell what is a threat from the Arctic, ice-breakers dig here and nothing to do with it ..

It turns out that an ordinary ice-class patrol ship — and there is no one to sail except ours, but they should know that there is someone in the Russian Arctic who can put a rocket on the deck of the enemy, who has nothing to do, neither eavesdrop on, nor snoop (except send a signal SOS from the tops of the New Earth or Taimyr mountains?). laughing laughing

    Well, let's classify Papanin as an "ice class cruiser." Who is worse off? TAKR Kuznetsov, many stubbornly called an aircraft carrier, and nothing happened. Papanin is a warship. We will leave the discussion of the effectiveness of its weapons to specialists. My opinion is that at present, gauges for the Arctic are redundant, there are simply no goals. And tomorrow? We have a huge Arctic border and consider its advance strengthening as the right measure.

      Why on
      icebreaker the ability to install launchers "Caliber"?

      Well, you never know, but what if it comes in handy? Our icebreaker is what we want. Need permission to ask?

        Yes, I do not mind, let it be.
        I am opposed to ice patrol ship
        class called an icebreaker.

    Yes, don’t be afraid of the C400, because all the specialists from abroad shout that this complex is worthless, even the illiterate nuclear countries bought it, fools and dummies took it from India and China, and also the weakest country bought and boiled it, and whoever hung noodles for you that the gauges on the icebreaker is a place to transport polar bears

    Article without author's signature. So this is served as news. However, the headline of the news uses the rhetoric of an American expert. An ice class ship is called an icebreaker. And a fair question is being asked about the icebreakers and calibers. However, in my opinion, this is a substitution of concepts. Indeed, for a patrol ship, universal vertical launch installations will no longer seem strange and aggressive?

    Friend, do you propose to hide monuments from blacks in the Arctic? In this case, you need to discuss payment in advance.

    Russia aggressively approaches the Arctic. They recently presented the new Ivan Papanin icebreaker, which can carry Caliber cruise missiles.

    Moreover, the Yankers forgot about the standard 76 mm gun, and they worry about the container “Caliber”, which “can be placed”. Why?

    Well, at least because the artillery on the icebreaker is really a defensive weapon, which can not be said about the "Caliber". Whether we like it or not, Caliber is hardly a defensive weapon.

    I will not pay attention to the words of the admiral,
    but I have a question about our icebreaker. Why on
    icebreaker the ability to install launchers "Caliber"?
    This is just a question, not an argument.

    Good show-offs, Michael, are more expensive than money. It makes no sense, but to show that we can even put this on the icebreaker - as without show-offs ... Is there no point in this? Well, it will be possible for such an icebreaker-rocket carrier to strike at a distance of 4 hundred kilometers. So those who he can fire on board may have “defensive” air defense systems or small-caliber anti-aircraft artillery. So, what is next???

    It’s good that we have the opportunity, if anything, to close America, that’s why they are furious. The Pentagon definitely reads VO and is familiar with the Stalin’s Strait plan.

    As in the past few years, fake people love VO. Either one blows up Yellowstone, then the other “makes the Stalin Strait on the North American continent.” Some idiot came up with a fake and everyone bought it ...

    Which Alaska? They cannot return and don’t seem to want their sea open spaces along the Mountain-Chernomyrdin

    And no open spaces along the Gorn-Chernomyrdin line will be returned to us. This agreement - the Gor-Chernomyrdin agreement has nothing to do with it.

    8500 tone VI and not a single Caliber ... it's somehow not in Russian chtol :)
    In general, a ship flying a military flag? Yes. Then what are the claims?

    Yes, at least 18500 tons. And then, "Gauges"? Who is this icebreaker going to fight with? Well, it would be understandable to install the foundations for artillery or air defense systems, in extreme cases, as in the days of the USSR, icebreakers were supplied with 30 mm or a maximum of 76 mm. Why "Gauges"? What will they do and against whom?

      Perhaps against Alaska (from the eastern part of the Arctic). Yes, by the way, not only with Gauges (but with everything that fits in 533mm).

    The Russian icebreaker Ivan Papanin, armed with Caliber cruise missiles, is not defensive, but offensive.

    Actually, it’s still progressive, it’s still in service ...
    And what should we do if, on the southern coast of the Arctic Ocean, ice does not melt even in summer. But to control the migration of red-breasted geese, polar bears., And to monitor the same flights of the northern loons, our scientists really need, even necessary. That's why ice class patrol ships are being built ...

    The American admiral was probably scared by an article on the English-language Wikipedia, which clearly states Armament will include a 100 mm gun (some sources state a 76 mm gun) and 3M-54 Kalibr anti-ship missiles. The Russian wiki writes about the container launch complexes of the Calibers, which have been talked about a lot at one time, but which seem to have never been produced. So, admiral, you need to know the languages!

    It would not hurt to put other heavy short-range weapons to this complete icebreaker, so that some NATO strategists would not be tempted to act in the style of Somali pirates ...

    Our territory, our ship, and what we want is what we put on it!
