The XNUMXth US Fleet is increasing the grouping of ships in the Black Sea

44

The Sixth Fleet of the US Navy is increasing the grouping of American ships in the Black Sea. As reported on the official page fleet on Twitter, USNS support tanker John Lenthall (T-AO-189) moved to the Bosphorus.


The command of the Sixth Fleet has decided to send the tanker John Lenthall to the Black Sea. He must join the flagship of the Sixth Fleet, the command ship USS Mount Whitney (LCC 20) and the destroyer URO USS Porter (DDG 78), which are already in the sea. So far, the task of the group is called "conducting operations with allies and partners."

In addition to official tasks, the US Navy group will solve others. It is not for nothing that the flagship of the Sixth Fleet USS Mount Whitney (LCC 20) has equipment for conducting electronic reconnaissance, as well as observing the air, surface and underwater situation. The presence of the tanker will make the ships of the US Navy more autonomous and eliminate unnecessary port visits.

In Moscow, the deployment of US Navy ships in the Black Sea was called aggravating the situation, which does not contribute to stability in the region. At the same time, the Kremlin stressed that Russia is ready for any development of the situation in the Black Sea and, if necessary, "will ensure its security."

        And now he has the same task, like the rest of the ships. They supposedly got used to the support. And this only means that the moment is very close, which can forever change the outskirts beyond recognition, or even completely delete it from the map of the world.
        But, that's what worries me a lot ... what if the mattress toppers open fire on the LPNR? After all, de jure this is the territory of Ukraine. They will refer to an alleged request for help from the official authorities of the Square, in "forcing the separatists to peace" ... What then?

          They will not open it, there are already more than a million Russian citizens there.
          P.i.n.d.s. can only inflate their cheeks, but at the same time they will not dare to untie the third world war.
          In addition, all these troughs in the Black Sea, if it happens that they do not live even 20 minutes, and the psi and our all understand this perfectly.

        and what, they did not support well?
        Ukraine and Georgia are now the most anti-Russian states in the world!
        crawling on their knees, begging to be admitted to NATO ..
        they will do everything for amers that they do not order
        even now they can place any missiles and troops there ... if they want ...

        the goal is completely achieved!

      The allies have undemocratic oil products - they are from Russia because. From them, the engines of American ships will begin to sneeze. Although in America itself there is plenty of our oil. Perhaps, after being processed at American factories into diesel fuel and fuel oil, Russian oil became democratic?

        The most interesting thing is that all US Navy supply vessels paint pipes in the colors of the Ukrainian flag for a very long time. So this is not a signal to Svidomo.

    The XNUMXth US Fleet is increasing the grouping of ships in the Black Sea
    Preparing for "negotiations" with the GDP. This is "normal", judging by the way in which minke whales go to the summits in trains!
    In general, nothing new ... an attempt to "negotiate" from a position of strength.

        Journalists / authors know how to catch up with the fog when they want.
        And as for the position of strength ... the Yankees do not do it any other way, you know, negotiations are planned, apparently.
        You don’t think that the president of striped hair will ask for something, negotiate !!! They will still DEMAND.

    "The US Navy's Sixth Fleet is building up a grouping of American ships in the Black Sea." And why don't we, in response, "build up a grouping" in the Caribbean. Sending some ships on a friendly visit to Cuba ?!

    Of the three ships, EM Porter is the real threat. The rest is "framing" the ORG. But to destroy, according to common sense, the first is the command ship. And the tanker - to increase the operational mobility of the group. It is also a tasty target, but it is "support" that can be easily replaced by an Allied tanker equipped to NATO standards.

              According to Montreux, the tanker does not fall under the convention. It does not carry weapons and does not sail under the American military flag. Tonnage restriction, only for warships carrying weapons on board.

    What do they want to show by this? What a plug for every barrel, so we know it. We also know that they support their "allies", and an example is Georgia, Afghanistan, Ukraine is next in line. We also know that we are still puffed up to build a hegemon out of ourselves and that it does not always work out. You won't be able to scare Russia. Carry out another provocation? Let's see.

      And how many of them will take off from Akhtubinsk? The declared ten (that is, the AE) is not there, I was there in service in March-April of this year, of the available steam, it is constantly in the north for testing, the remaining ones will not really do the weather even for such a small detachment of ships, and the "dagger" has not been shown 100% works successfully! In 5 years, I think it will be a formidable force, but while refinement is underway and there are not enough carriers, so do not rely on Akhtubinsk. Shaikovka and Olenya can, if they work in a pair, in any case, a dozen and a half "backfires" will take off with 107 products

        I can't say anything about the number of 31K on duty, I have no data at all, but the general component of aviation around the Black Sea will drown everything there, both local and alien, except for airfields in Crimea, there is also an airfield in Krymsk, 30 years ago it was an air defense airfield, now, most likely, there are also SU-30 and 35 attack aircraft on it, and also in the Crimea there is a DBK and a submarine division in Novoross nearby, the Bosphorus simply physically will not be able to pass ships at the required speed, we will have to gaze longingly at the horizon, waiting for another sacrifice
