The US Navy sent a second warship to the Black Sea

Sixth command fleet The US Navy dispatched a second warship to the Black Sea. According to the press service of the fleet, the destroyer USS Thomas Hudner (DDG-116) passed the Dardanelles and is heading for the Bosphorus.


According to a widespread report, the destroyer is sent to the Black Sea for "conducting operations to ensure security at sea." This is the second ship sent by the American fleet to the Black Sea in two days. Earlier, the missile cruiser USS Monterey (CG-61) passed through the straits.

The destroyer USS Thomas Hudner (DDG-116) and the cruiser USS Monterey (CG-61) are part of the escort group for the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS CVN-69 Eisenhower ("Dwight Eisenhower"). The aircraft carrier itself, along with the rest of the AUG ships, is currently in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Turkey. Perhaps somewhere in this area is the Russian submarine "Rostov-on-Don", which is monitoring the AUG and which American ships have not been able to detect for a week.

The AUG entered the Mediterranean Sea on March 8 and was supposed to proceed through the Suez Canal to the Middle East, but the decision was postponed.

As Voennoye Obozreniye previously reported, in recent days the following have entered the Black Sea: the Second Standing NATO Naval Groups (SNMG2), the Second NATO Mine Action Group (SNMCMG2), the Spanish missile frigate F104 Mendez Nunez (Mendes Nunez), Greek missile boat HS Ypoploiarchos Kristallidis (P 69) and cruiser USS Monterey (CG-61).

      Ours are now pushing against the underwater component of the fleet and the fig knows what is hanging out there under the water near their coast. The 6th Fleet has not been able to find the Black Sea Fleet's Varshayanka for a week in the Mediterranean Sea.

        push against the underwater component of the fleet


        At the Pacific Fleet, 1 SSNS remained.
        Bratsk and Samara have been undergoing repairs since 2014, but it was only in 2020 that they began preparations for repairs in Bratsk.
        Both Barakudas are stuck for money, they will probably be disposed of. In reserve, modernization design work stopped in 2020.
        4 ShchukB in the lineup, 3 repair boats thwarted the terms by + 1-1,5 years.
        Since 2019, Kazan has been handed over every year 3-4 times, by type, so by the day of the Navy, by the day of the submariner, in the fall, 150% will be handed over under the Christmas tree!
        For 677 - hug and cry. Or just cry. Even the Navy doesn't really know what to do. Kronstadt is also being handed over since 2019.

        In total, the only successful submarine series 636 boats, which stupidly fell off the export. Since the Egyptians chose the Germans, the Thais and Pakistanis of the Chinese, Vietnam and Algeria did not order new boats. As a result, the Admiralty shipyards received a real prospect of turning into VASO with the dismissal of half of the workers and 2-3 days a week for the rest. The Navy ordered them 6 boats for the Black Sea Fleet (Rostov is looking for from this series), and then for the Pacific Fleet, but what will happen after 22 years, when again some of the shops will be idle, is still unclear. The chances of concluding new contracts under US pressure are 0%, well, or the Syrians will be presented with a couple.

        Meanwhile, the United States, which does not press on the underwater component, has 19 Virgineks against 4 ShchukB and 1 Severodvinsk wink ... And this is without partners, vassals, Elks, SeaWulfs.


        Belgorod and Borei will not be able to break through even the PLO picket-front line without cover. Without SSNS and fleet actions.

        Therefore, yours but we build submarines, somewhat optimistic and far from reality.

          and bend your fingers ... well, bend with the Chinese
          China's submarine fleet is expected to grow from about 66 submarines (today) to 76 (by 2030).

            China has the Bohai mega-shipyard, the largest nuclear submarine construction center in the world. So far, only 1 modernized queue has been introduced, 2 soon. What they are building there is generally unclear.

            Demonstrations of what? The Iranians over there also photographed the aircraft carrier - is this not a reason to say that Iranian mini-boats will tear YUS Navi?

            I only pointed out that there is no direct strike building of submarines in practice. People have this feeling mainly because each boat is written 5-6 times in the media, it will soon be included in the composition, until the end of the year, this year for sure, until the day of the Navy, and so on.

            The only series that is normally being built is 636, the most primitive that got into the Navy for the reason that they stopped buying it and the plant was either loaded or closed. If some Egypt ordered 9x636, and did not buy 209 from Merkel, then the Navy would not have bought any diesel engines at all wink .

            At the same time, a complete priest with repairs and, in general, SSNS, namely, they must ensure the combat deployment of SSBNs in a special period. Moreover, they also have to hunt Ohio in the same special period. And there are 1 of them in the Pacific Fleet, 4 in the north.

              Well, it depends on where they were photographed, and depending on where they break it, and the demonstration of pl with yao off the coast of the United States at 62m was quite enough

                You have a different world. Demonstration of nuclear weapons from submarines in 62 was mainly post factum. Rather, the Americans began to detect boats and, as it were, came to the conclusion that there is 100% nuclear weapons, and if it starts, they need to quickly deal with them.

                There, if that the whole Cuba was next to the confirmed reconnaissance and photo of the MRBM, and not 1-2-3, but divisional kits that covered the most industrially developed and populated part of the United States. Torpedo diesel boats, possibly several missile boats for 3 MRBMs, were a mere trifle in comparison. wink

    What is the total tonnage of the ships?
    According to the doctrine of Montreux - The total tonnage of military ships of the non-Black Sea states in the Black Sea should not exceed 30 thousand tons.

    It is strange that our Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Defense do not make any statements about the presence of NATO and US ships in the waters of the Black Sea. "The Black Sea Fleet is monitoring their movements." And it's all? And where is the summons of the ambassadors of these states to hand over a note of protest, where are the statements of ministers, etc. actions? Meanwhile, the clear military threat to the Crimea and the Black Sea coast of Russia is becoming more and more dangerous every day. There is, of course, another side to this matter. Any information about the strength of the enemy, about his readiness to attack, bomb, land troops can play primarily on this enemy, makes him stronger in the eyes of ordinary citizens, businessmen associated with the transportation of goods across the Black Sea, for example, demoralizes, in the end. Perhaps this is the reason for the silence, they say, everyone knows: rock the boat, we will sink! .. But still, I would not want it to come to "1941".

      Study which states and fleets, how many in terms and tonnage, can be in the World Cup. Then everything will become clear.

    On the eve of the call of a group of US Navy ships into the Black Sea, the crew of the Russian frigate "Admiral Essen" worked out the use of cruise missiles "Caliber" against surface targets. Successfully.
    At the moment, the Black Sea Fleet warship is at sea.

    It seems that Ukraine is preparing some kind of big nix in the Donbass, and the ships of the United States and NATO are sliding into the World Cup under this case. No wonder the entire submarine of the Black Sea Fleet went to sea.

    As far as I know, the Bosphorus Convention rather tightly regulates who and when can enter a warship. Doesn't the US actions contradict it?
