"For operations with partners": US destroyer URO Arleigh Burke (DDG-51) headed to the Black Sea


Ships of the US Navy are frequenting the Black Sea coast of Russia, another American destroyer went to the Black Sea. As reported by the command of the Sixth fleet on its official Twitter page, the URO destroyer Arleigh Burke (DDG-51) began to move towards the Turkish straits.

The ships of the Black Sea Fleet did not have time to conduct the command ship USS Mount Whitney (LCC 20), the destroyer URO USS Porter (DDG 78), and the support tanker USNS John Lenthall (T-AO-189), when it’s time to meet a new "guest" - the destroyer of the controlled missile weapons (URO) Arleigh Burke (DDG-51).

As stated in the message of the Sixth Fleet, the ship is sent to "conduct operations with allies and NATO partners in the region." The wording is one-to-one, as when other US and NATO ships are in the Black Sea, and not only in the Black Sea. Any actions of American and NATO ships may be hidden behind this statement.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has not yet reacted in any way to the sending of another American ship to the Black Sea, but this is official. The Black Sea Fleet is already ready for a meeting and traditionally organizes constant monitoring of the American ship with the available forces and means. While it is not known exactly where the destroyer will go after passing the straits, there is also no information about the possible dispatch of other ships of the Sixth Fleet or NATO countries to the Black Sea.

Earlier, the Ministry of Defense did not rule out that the United States and NATO partners are preparing a provocation in the Black Sea, in which Ukraine will play the main role. Moscow declared its full readiness for such a situation and warned the United States about the consequences of such actions.

    It is necessary to urgently return the aircraft carrier from repair - when the aircraft carrier was afloat, NATO ships did not meddle in the Black Sea ...

    FDG-51 is almost thirty years old, and if anything, I don’t feel sorry for him. Is it not for the purpose of provocation that they send him? As the saying goes, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean you're not being followed.

    US Navy ships are frequenting the Black Sea coast of Russia,

    So it's time to get used to it. What does "frequent" mean? They rotate on an ongoing basis. Everything. The holidays are over. The USSR could afford to kick Arleigh Burke.
    RF only to catch up and shoot in pursuit.

      Serge-667 .....РФ only catch up and shoot catch up

      Why only to "catch up". The Englishman was "put" on the course, after which he immediately reacted. And most importantly, now
      The NATO navy recognized Crimea as Russian, because they are afraid to enter its territorial waters.

        Yes, he did not react in any way. I didn't even cut the corner. As he walked, he left the tervod. With small turns left and right. He did not change the course to Poti.

      Hmm ...

      With a real threat from this direction, Russia is able to "meet" the US Navy and "partners" (in any of their surface guises) already on the approaches to the straits. "Dagger" in symbiosis with the MiG-31 has been tested and quite reliable.

      And in this direction it is already a year and a half - two as on an experimental database.

      Duc, why run after them on the sea? .. Is this perhaps a "question" and some kind of "problem"? ..

      The question is what and when it is more convenient to heat it. "Daggers" or Crimean DBKs. But, as I believe, the General Staff and the Black Sea Fleet will decide this issue, if necessary, "at the expense of times" ...

      It's just a matter of giving the appropriate order ...

        In case of a real threat, this Defender, being an air defense ship, will shoot at everything flying over the Crimea and will not blink an eye. And strike weapons will come from other friends of the NATO bloc.

      Yes, it seems like everything and everything, FOR YOURSELF, has long been "decided". And the United States with NATO, and Russia ...

      The former united Ukraine is a testing ground. And everyone will decide for himself how to "use" it.

      The only question is what will remain of it after "use" ...

    Really, nowhere in the warehouses were captured mines from the Great Patriotic War lying around, let them float freely along the course or throw bottom mines in the area for "conducting operations with NATO allies and partners in the region." Let the claims be made to Germany later.

    For operations with partners

    They do business with partners or have sex. And operations are carried out against enemies or on patients. The "Black Sea allies" NATO does not pull on trading partners - so the choice is not great.

    it's time, it's time to scare the "partners" hard. Like with Donald Cook. So that then psychologists worked with the crew for a long time and treated for stuttering.

        Well, there are those who believe in this and do not want to think with their heads, rejecting the laws of physics / radio engineering / electrical engineering.
        For obvious reasons, the power of electronic warfare equipment on tactical aircraft (limited by the power of onboard generators) does not usually exceed 10 kW.
        For obvious reasons, the power of shipborne radars is hundreds of times higher!
        It's like turning off a fire siren with a sports whistle.
        But official propaganda has done its job - people have forgotten how to think.
