Logistics point in Tartus will receive a floating dock

16

The Russian Ministry of Defense is expanding the capabilities of the logistics center (PMTO) in Tartus.


It is reported TASS with reference to a source in the DIC.

According to the source, a floating dock will be delivered to Syrian Tartus from Russia, as a result of which the PMTO will receive new opportunities for the repair and maintenance of ships and submarines. Details are not disclosed, whether it will be a dock of a new construction or one of the available ones will be delivered to the point, it is not known. According to the source, this will happen next year, 2022.

The floating dock will make it possible to repair surface ships and submarines directly in Tartus, without sending them to Russian shipyards. To assist in the repair, field crews of ship repairers will join the base specialists. It will be much cheaper than driving ships and submarines to Russia.

Currently, only service maintenance is carried out in Tartus. Small repairs of surface ships are provided by floating workshops from the Black Sea and Baltic fleets located in Tartus on a rotational basis. Submarines are undergoing repairs in the Baltic Sea, making long passages.

The logistics center in Tartus serves ships and submarines of the permanent grouping of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean Sea.

      For a boat, even a diesel one, the dock is a very voluminous thing. But his presence will transfer the PMTO to the status of a base, probably.

        It should be immediately transferred to the status of an autonomous region.

        It will be much easier to solve pressing problems


        I am not kidding.
        For the liberation of the country from the Barmaley, the Syrians will write off some of the lands of Russia.

      Give me a full-fledged naval base of the Russian Navy in Tartus! (This is not sarcasm.)

      And there you can also organize "tire fitting" and "car service" for arming the countries that have bought our equipment. wink

      The agreement on the creation of a Soviet Navy facility in Syria was signed in 1971. The Russian Navy has been registered there for a long time !!!!

    And who does or can do docks from us in the Baltic or the Black Sea. Or will we order the Turks again?

    The main thing is that your partners do not knock you down again. And so that the boats do not climb into foreign territorial waters.

    There is no special sense in this base - there will soon be nothing to base there except boats and small ships.
    Yes, and she is vulnerable - everywhere US / British nuclear submarines in the Mediterranean with Tomahawks on board.
    We need to strengthen and equip our own bases on our own territory.
    The old "Kuznetsov" over there has not been able to do it for many years, it was almost drowned, then it was almost burned. We must start with this.
    And chasing NATO countries in terms of the number of naval bases is not worth it. They have dozens of them. But the budgets for this are appropriate.
