"Under constant NATO surveillance": Russian diesel-electric submarine "Rostov-on-Don" entered the Mediterranean

Russian diesel-electric submarine of the Black Sea fleet Rostov-on-Don entered the Mediterranean Sea, passing Gibraltar. The boat is constantly monitored by NATO forces and assets.


The Russian submarine is on the surface, accompanied by the rescue tug "Professor Nikolai Muru". In the area of ​​the North Sea and the English Channel, the submarine was under constant surveillance by the British patrol ship HMS Mersey, along the Portuguese coast to the strait, the US Navy P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine patrol aircraft followed the Russian submarine.

    Fortunately, it is not couch strategists who determine the existence and development of the power component in Russia. And in the United States, for sure, responsible shoulder straps in pontoons do not adhere exactly to the assessments that are publicly voiced here. laughing

    Diesel-electric submarines of the last century, low autonomy in a submerged position. Therefore, we are going to the Mediterranean Sea to the entire NATO for a survey on the surface ... I don’t remember that Western submarines moved in such a way in places where a potential enemy was congregated. The task of such a diesel-electric submarine is to protect coastal waters near its shore. For the Black Sea, they are suitable but no further. But since we have even bigger problems with VNEU and I think they will not be solved in the near future, then there is nothing left to use what we have.

      Our nuclear submarines, leaving the base, dive right away without leaving the territorial waters, I have seen them in Barentsukh more than once. DPRs in the world have been missed once or twice, I mean without the DPRK. Their destiny is to go to a long distance on the surface, now is peacetime. MV in 2 44 g, the Germans sat under water for up to a month and most with zero result.

      Greetings, comrade! hi drinks

      Maximum immersion depth - 300 m
      Full submerged speed - 19 knots
      Autonomy - 45 days
      Crew - 52 person

      The submarine of the Russian Navy with the Kalibr cruise missiles entered the Mediterranean Sea. Moscow. March 7. INTERFAX.RU - Submarine of the Black Sea Fleet The "Rostov-on-Don" with the "Caliber" cruise missiles, having passed through Gibraltar, on Sunday entered the Mediterranean Sea on the surface.

    Calm down, basurman. Your "great" Turkish fleet has been destroyed by the Russians more than once. And you were beaten more than once (and not the last). After that, do you think about shame? Sprinkle your head with your screwdriver bays. This is the top of your technology. Not mature enough, in general, to criticize.
    Sit quietly and don't anger the Russians, if that didn't work out.

    ... the most likely option is to return the submarine to combat duty to the Syrian coast after the scheduled repairs carried out in Kronstadt, to which the diesel-electric submarine was sent last summer.

    There are six such Varshavyanka in the Black Sea Fleet. If it was a planned repair and the boat had to be driven all the way to Kronnshadt, then this is not (entirely) effective even from an economic point of view. It's time to get the opportunity to renovate your house.

    Engines: 2 diesel generators 1000 kW each, feeding: main electric motor 5500 hp,
    Am I alone, something I do not understand in electronic equipment? 5500hp somewhere around 4045 kW. How do two 1000 kW diesel engines turn such a motor? 50% of face value plus cos f.
