Small artillery ship "Volgodonsk" of the Caspian Flotilla prepares for the first combat shooting

In October, the crew of the newest small artillery ship (IAC) “Volgodonsk” will work out the elements of joint navigation with the IAC “Astrakhan” and conduct the first after state tests martial artillery firing in the sea ranges of the Caspian Sea.

At present, the ship’s crew has successfully passed the course task (KZ-1), which is the first step in preparing the ship to perform tasks for its intended purpose.

Sailors of all combat units successfully conducted a series of naval exercises to prepare the ship for battle and march, worked out the daily organization of service, readiness for servicing military equipment and weaponspreparing the ship for receiving ammunition and sailing in the sea.

In the process of combat training, the emergency ship batches conducted a series of exercises to combat survivability. The sailors at a special training complex that imitated the compartments of the ship, fought with fire during the ignition of the wiring and eliminated holes with the actual flow of water and fire in the compartment.

The next stage of preparation will be the coordination of the crew during exits to the Caspian Sea, where the sailors will have to improve the skills of performing marine elements and planned combat exercises with a single ship.

"Volgodonsk" - a combat ship of the "Buyan" project, designed for combat operations as part of the surface forces of the Caspian flotilla both in the sea zone and in river sections. Designed by the FSUE Zelenodolsk Design Bureau (Tatarstan) specifically taking into account the features of the Caspian Sea and the Volga River Delta. Its main advantages are high seaworthiness and low draft.

    Oh, there is a "turmoil" in the Caspian recourse

    Here from the German press
    The Caspian countries demonstrate their muscles to each other. The Iranian crisis and the presence of unresolved disputes between them make this game dangerous.

    Last week, Turkmenistan conducted the first naval exercises in the Caspian during its independence. According to Russian media reports, they involved both the Navy and the Air Force, as well as ground forces, as well as special forces of the Ministry of National Security and units of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Actions were taken to repulse the attack of the conditional enemy, whose sabotage groups, after the aggravation of the military-political situation in the Caspian region, penetrated the territory belonging to Turkmenistan in order to disable military facilities, seize merchant ships, oil refineries and state institutions.

    The militarization of the Caspian

    According to experts, neutral Turkmenistan thus only confirmed its participation in the militarization of the Caspian. “This process has intensified in recent years,” said Natalia Kharitonova, coordinator of the joint Eurasian expert network Jeen. She points out that in the spring of 2012 Kazakhstan launched the first rocket and artillery ship of its own production, in 2013 Astana plans to replenish the Caspian flotilla with two more such ships, but with more powerful weapons.

    The buildup of military capabilities in the Caspian — near Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan — is proceeding rapidly and almost simultaneously. After the collapse of the USSR, the Azerbaijani Navy received much more when dividing military equipment than the Turkmen Navy. Ashgabat strengthens the fleet thanks to imports (mainly from Ukraine, due to gas supplies) and leases from Iran. Azerbaijan is betting on military-technical cooperation with Israel, Natalia Kharitonova points out.


    ibid.

    But Russia has the largest flotilla in the Caspian, although responsible Russian military leaders claim its technical backwardness and the need for its modernization, says Natalya Kharitonova. Nevertheless, any movement of Moscow towards strengthening its positions in the Caspian Sea is of particular concern, but not so much among its neighbors as in the West, notes Andrey Tibold. According to him, historically in the West they viewed Russia as a threat, and this approach has not changed, including in the Caspian. “Objectively, the interests of the West differ from the interests of Russia both in the Caucasus and in this region, which is so rich in resources. But historically, this is a region of influence of Russia, and it has the right to defend its interests there. At the same time, objectively, Russia is now just interested in maintaining stability in the Caspian, ”said an expert from Amsterdam.

      That’s what I’m talking about the Caspian, it’s a tidbit, and there are enough contradictions, Iran openly cf..t for all agreements on the Caspian Sea and begins to independently develop oil fields (let me remind you of the 10-mile zone), it will decide to squeeze out the neighbors at one point .. .

        And why did they flock to Iran? Just now, they were tearing their throats for poor Iran, suffering from America and Israel. What is such inconsistency? After all, they spoke for the right of Iran to develop a "peaceful" atom. They regretted that Russia had not fulfilled its obligations to supply S-300 to Iran. Diligently retouched the calls of the Ayatollahs for guidance, all over the world of the NEW ISLAMIC ORDER. They rejoiced that Iran threatens to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. They declared Iran to be their bosom ally in the Middle East. And that now suddenly they saw a threat from him? Did they start to see clearly?

        Iran from the very beginning did not agree with the borders on the Caspian Sea proposed by other Caspian countries (CIS). Wait, if Iran will enrich its "peaceful" atom in combat plutonium, then there will be no question of consent. Iran will deliver its ultimatum squarely. And there will be no need for artillery ships, other weapons will be needed. Iran will demand independence for its brothers in faith in the North Caucasus and what to do? When I wrote about it, they minus me in volleys. Here's another negative opportunity. Now for the opposite.

        And in general, which country, for the most part Orthodox (Russia), needs an Islamic, orthodox friend living according to Sharia law to the cut. One of the parties in international relations may be. God forbid ally and friend.

      The ships of the Russian Navy became the embodiment of the power of the US Navy at the Congress of Democrats

      Photo: Getty Images
      The organizers of the Congress of the American Democratic Party demonstrated the power of the US Navy, shooting a patriotic movie with warships of the USSR times of the Cold War and the Russian Navy, writes on Wednesday the American news Internet portal Navy Times.
      The incident occurred the day before when Democrats honored their retired veterans at a party congress. During a speech by retired admiral John Nathman, a patriotic video was shown on the stage in which Soviet-made warships appeared under the developing American flag.


      laughing On the screen, a close-up of the "Kerch" BOD was shown. laughing

      The other ships demonstrated at the congress were apparently also Soviet or Russian. This was easily determined by other experts. In particular, one of the ships is equipped with the MP-700 Podberezovik radar station, and the other is equipped with the MP-310 Angara radar station (Head Net). One of the experts did not exclude that the destroyer "Shrewd" was also shown at the video presentation. When viewed in detail on one of the ships, a white-blue Andreevsky flag was even noticed,

          Here is what there is laughing


          To the right of the video screen, part of the "Kerch" BOD is motionless (as I understood from the article, but I'm not a specialist in the Navy).

          the naval forces determined that during the patriotic speech of the officer behind him, Russian, rather than American, warships were shown behind his back.

          The organizers' mistake was confirmed by experts, writes Navy Times. "The ships are definitely Russian. This raises no questions," confirmed, for example, the author of novels on the naval theme Norman Polmar.

          A large screen showing "America's military power" allowed sailors to see all the details. There were four ships in the pictures, experienced sailors identified the names of two of them: "Kerch" and "Sharp-witted". "All four ships are in service with the Black Sea Fleet," a retired naval officer stated in an interview with the Navy Times, barely looking at the photo.

          A photograph of Russian ships accompanying the patriotic speech of the American admiral was a shock for the naval, one of the officers admits.

        The speech of the retired admiral of the US Navy at the Congress of the Democratic Party was accompanied by a giant photo, designed to illustrate the military power of the American Navy. But the veterans who were in the hall suspected something was wrong when they saw a white flag with a slanting blue cross on the stern of one of the ships, an antenna array suspiciously resembling the radar of the most likely enemy with the unpronounceable name Podberezovik, and the ships themselves didn’t look like American ones. Now in the party ranks they are looking for a pest. lol

Until they settled with the foreigners, "Volgodonsk" stood in the stall, well, chichas, it seems, they received a little money, it went from them.

        The total length of the channel should be about 600 kilometers. It will begin in the area of ​​the Kyzyl-Uzen delta, which flows into the Caspian Sea. Further, the channel will be partially laid through the channel of the same river, closer to the south - along the channel of Kerkhe with access to the mouth of the navigable Karun river near the city of Khorramshahr. It is reported that for the implementation of the project, Iran will need about 7 billion dollars, which in modern times can be called a very reasonable amount for such a promising project.

    And yet, a question for those who know, Sergh wrote that there is no stabilizer. Is this really so? Judging by the video, the main caliber shoots almost at the speed of a machine gun. Dispersion will be PPC what. On the wave - 300m further fly away, from the wave - 300m closer. If the tanks have stabilizers for 50 years already, is it really impossible to stick into a ship? Or at such ranges as at sea, is this not important?
    Please explain.

      I'm not special. on ships, but a former tanker. Logically, if you do not put a stabilizer on a cannon, a modern ship, then the ship should not be built. And then the pitch stabilizer is one thing, gun stabilizer is another.

      The pitch stabilizer is a huge unit located in the hold of the ship, and working on the principle of a gyroscope. It smooths the ship's rolling on the waves.

      The gun stabilizer is also a gyroscope, but very small. If it is of high quality, then no pitching of the hull will not take aiming aim.

      Serge had this in mind. No stabilizer pitching ship. Well, you can't do without a gun stabilizer.
