American edition: the Russian fleet can measure its strength with the USA and NATO in the Black Sea

77

The US Navy is three times the size of the Russian Naval fleet, but Russia can compete against the US and NATO in the Black Sea. This is the conclusion reached by the author of an article for the American magazine The National Interest, Chris Osborne.

The Russian fleet is much smaller than the American and NATO fleet, but in the Black Sea it is able to withstand the ships of the alliance, the author writes. Recently, Russia has been "openly and persistently" expanding its presence in the Black Sea region, building up its forces by introducing new ships into the fleet.



Compared to modern and huge American ships, small ships under construction by Russia, at first glance, do not pose a danger, but this is a delusion. Russian ships are a threat if you know what they are armed with. And if you believe the Russian media, Osborne notes, Russia is completing tests of hypersonic missiles that will be put into service with the frigates of the Russian fleet.

According to the author, the Russian Navy does not have large ships and aircraft carriers, but there are 64 modern submarines, 85 corvettes and 55 patrol boats capable of creating a serious threat in the Black Sea for US and NATO ships capable of entering there, since aircraft carriers and other large ships The US Navy cannot enter the waters of this sea.

Summing up, Osborne writes that the Russian fleet is more suitable for coastal defense, posing a threat to NATO ships that have entered the Black Sea, but otherwise the American fleet is stronger.

                Very, very funny article! The insolence of the amerikosov is unlimited!
                "Recently, Russia has been" openly and persistently "expanding its presence in the Black Sea region, building up its forces by introducing new ships into the fleet."
                What is the impudent American indignant at? The fact that Russia is in its sea ​​near своих coast creates a fleet to counter the attack?

                "According to the author, the Russian Navy does not have large ships and aircraft carriers, but there are 64 modern submarines, 85 corvettes and 55 patrol boats capable of creating a serious threat in the Black Sea for US and NATO ships capable of entering there ..."
                А why US and NATO ships to enter the Black Sea? After all, the Black Sea is closed to outsiders sea ​​and very far from the USA! You could even say the USA is on the other side of the Earth! Looking for an adventure on your butt around the globe? Oh well... laughing

      What nonsense. It has been known since the Second World War that the fleet cannot effectively resist a massive attack by military aircraft. Without air supremacy, the fleet is doomed to defeat, no matter who and what forces would not enter the Black Sea. At present, only the Aerospace Forces of the Russian Armed Forces can create such air supremacy in this region.

        Look at the map.
        75% of the coastlines of the Black Sea are NATO countries and they sincerely sympathize (there are even more who want us to be defeated than the Americans and NATO members).


        NATO countries have combat aviation, which they can transfer to the zone of the potential Black Sea conflict - like carrots. 3 times more than ours.
        And airfields as well as dirt.

              Article 5 “The Contracting Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America will be regarded as an attack against them as a whole, and therefore agree that in the event such an armed attack takes place each of them, in exercise of the right to individual or collective self-defense recognized by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will assist the victimized Contracting Party, or the Contracting Parties subjected to such an attack, by the immediate implementation of such individual or joint action, which it considers necessary including the use of armed force to restore and subsequently maintain the security of the North Atlantic region.

              The fact that Crimea is Russia changes the state of affairs in the Black Sea region quite dramatically. In addition to additional airfields for aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces, there are positions of coastal RKs, as well as air defense. And they almost completely cover the entire Black Sea.

Here it is inappropriate to talk about shapkozakidatelstvo, the strategy of a modern war with a strong enemy, thank God, no one checked, because all parties know or assume how it will all end. There can be no talk of any NATO consolidation when you are threatened with total destruction. These "allies" will sit quietly in their holes, even if half of the NATO countries from which they will fly to us will be either responded or involuntarily destroyed.

        Are you going to "smash" the NATO fleet in the NATO sea?
        Indeed, in fact - this is the last 20 years - just like that.
        Turkey? to NATO (its fleet is seven times stronger than ours, and there are plenty of aviation)
        Romania, Bulgaria? to NATO (there is no fleet, but all its aviation, infrastructure, all its airfields and naval base will be provided for the rest of NATO members).
        Georgia and Ukraine? no, they are not in NATO, but they are worse than NATO ... they will provide everything, they will also lick the boots of the NATO members and whiten their anus - if only against Russia.

        So stop throwing propaganda into the masses.
        Learn the realities.
        The Black Sea is the NATO Sea!
        This will show you the usual geographical map, the composition of the armed forces.
        And the usual comparison.



        And yes.
        they also have coastal missile systems and aviation, which is many times larger than ours.
        But you probably don't know about it.
        In the training manuals, there is no team to write about this ...

            The same declaration of Montreux states:

            In time of war, when Turkey is a belligerent, the provisions of Articles 10-18 will not apply; the passage of warships will depend solely on the discretion of the Turkish Government.

                Spherical horses again.
                Well, tell us why, for example, during the first attack on Baghdad, the first to fly were electronic warfare planes, armed with PRLR, as well as several dozen helicopters.
                Well, several hundred sabotage groups.
                First of all, they destroyed communication lines, power lines, generating sets, if possible.
                Blocked the work of the radar.
                Destroyed those radars, which nevertheless turned on.
                The next day they did the same.
                And only then, several tens of hours later, a massive invasion began.

                It was the same with Yugoslavia.

                So why do you think that NATO will "drill" against Russia without being puzzled by their usual preparation for a strike?

                Maybe just because you don't know military history?

                    If you are still convinced that a 5 kilowatt transmitter can "beat to death" a 6 megawatt Aegis, then you need to tangibly go to school ...

                    GPS is jammed only in a very limited radius.
                    Now it is no more than 5 kilometers.

                    Rockets go along several SN, in the absence of GPS signals, or their distortion, they go along the Terkom, along the reference points.
                    Maps are updated every 3-4 months - this is an ongoing, regular routine.
                    After updating the algorithm and technical base (it happened 3 years ago) - the calculation of the flight task and its loading into the rocket takes no more than 40 minutes.

                    It is extremely difficult to shoot down tomahawks - they go below 60 meters above the ground. Decreasing in flat areas up to 30 meters.

                    The only ones who shot down the tomahawks were the Iraqis, at one reference point, shooting in pursuit from MANPADS. Visually observing the missile flying overhead and firing at it.

                    I don’t remember any information that an Iraqi air defense missile system would have shot down a Tomahawk.
                    I did not see information that during any hostilities, any aircraft detected a flying Tomahawk and was able to intercept and destroy it.

                    So the whole underestimation of subsonic cruise missiles, be it Tomahawk or Caliber, is very wrong.

                    Just for the most modern air defense systems, it is precisely subsonic missile launchers flying at an ultra-low altitude, yet a more complex target than supersonic and hypersonic missiles that fly at high altitudes ...

In general, the author is disingenuous, everything that he has listed is not in the Black Sea, and certainly there are no 85 Russian corvettes and 64 submarines in the Black Sea.

      Indicative in this regard is the history of the Spanish "Invincible Armada", which consisted of 130 ships, but was defeated in the attack on the British coast in 1588 by the English fleet due to its sluggishness. But when the English fleet decided to attack the Spanish coast, it in turn was defeated.
      You can also talk about the glorious victories of F.F. Ushakova, P.S. Nakhimov, who had a much smaller number of ships than the enemy had, led Russia to glorious victories at sea in the XNUMXth-XNUMXth centuries.
      In the 1941th century, there were also great admirals in Soviet Russia. For example, N. Kuznetsov - People's Commissar of the USSR Navy. It was he who strengthened the fleet on the eve of the German attack on the USSR in XNUMX. And on the eve of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, he gave the order to bring ships and naval aviation into combat readiness, which allowed the Soviet fleet to avoid losses on the first day of the war and to give the Germans a worthy rebuff.
      So the Americans, in my opinion, risk not reading in some XXII century about the victories of the Russian fleet in the XXI century, if they finally decide to commit aggression against the Russian Crimea or in the Baltic, or in the Pacific Ocean, or near Arkhangelsk (favorite point the British invasion of Russia). Others will read.
