The ships of the Caspian flotilla will be included in the operational reserve of the fleet for operations in the Black and Mediterranean Seas

Ships of the Caspian flotilla will be included in the operational reserve of the Russian Navy for operations in the Black and Mediterranean Seas. The corresponding decision was made by the Ministry of Defense.


Operational detachments will be formed as part of the Caspian Flotilla, which will serve in the Black and Mediterranean Seas. The basis of such groups will be warships armed with Caliber or Onyx cruise missiles. As part of the flotilla, small artillery and missile ships of projects 21630 "Buyan" and 21631 "Buyan-M" with a total of 6 units claim this role. The patrol ship "Tatarstan" of project 11661 "Gepard" can also join them.

As reported "News" citing military sources, the decision to form an operational reserve has already been made, in the near future a group of ships from the Caspian flotilla will go to the Black Sea, and then to the Mediterranean, where they will strengthen the permanent naval grouping of the Russian Navy.

It is worth noting that the sailors of the Caspian Flotilla have experience in inter-naval transitions and serving off the coast of Syria. During the period of 2018-2019, small missile ships of project 21361 Buyan-M Grad Sviyazhsk, Veliky Ustyug and Uglich visited the Mediterranean Sea, and RTO Veliky Ustyug twice. They were based at the MTO Tartus and performed tasks as intended as part of the permanent grouping of the Russian Navy in the Mediterranean Sea. In 2021, a detachment of the Caspian Flotilla took part in the exercises held in the Black Sea.

The ships of the project 21631 "Buyan-M" are the modernization of the project 21630 "Buyan" and belong to the multipurpose ships of the "river-sea" class. Designed to protect the economic zone of the state. The main armament is the Kalibr-NK long-range universal missile system for eight vertical silos. Displacement 949 tons. Length 74,1 meters, width 11,0 meters, height 6,57 meters, draft 2,6 meters. The maximum speed is 25 knots. Cruising range - 2500 miles, autonomy - 10 days. Crew - 52 people. A water-jet propulsion unit is installed.

    It’s logical. While it’s calm in the Caspian Sea, you can use the combat potential of the fleet in other regions. Just don’t oversleep, as usual. You need to work with countries

      Instead of building a normal fleet, are we patching up "Trishkin's caftan"? So many ships were cut to please the Kremlin partners, now rickets for 15 days are welcome, like a new destroyer ...

            The Black Sea Fleet, half of it was seized by independent non-brothers. And ... they successfully screwed up ... They screwed up everything .. It's generally a miracle that the Russian Black Sea Fleet managed to survive in such pressure from the blood authorities and the indifference of Yeltsin's accomplices ... More than twenty-five years have been lost, at that time they only supported the very existence of the fleet ... This dwarf with eight modern missiles is a giant in the Black Sea.

    In light of all these American sanctions and European bucking, isn't it time for us to take a swing at the Eurasia project:

      The Russian economy is driven into a stupor by Nabiulin and Siluanov, under the leadership of their guru _ Kudrin. To press down from "quietly", and break out into the operational space.

        More interesting is the question why they have not been removed together with Chubais so far? The answer to this question would probably give the same answers to many questions of modern Russia.

          They haven't removed it, which means they can't yet. Pushed into a corner, deprived of a lot. But to remove it to the end ... they are henchmen of the globalists. And the globalists will strike immediately... Our statesmen are slyly squeezing the dollar out of our economy... and they are setting up a reverse trend. Allegedly, the free movement of capital is needed by someone other than international speculators. 80% of our exchange is international hedge funds... there is no investment from there. And it won't.
          But they can bring down the exchanges for us instantly ... We will survive, of course, but it will be unpleasant ...

      Too many environmental problems are being created there, and what else are we going to do with the Krymsky bridge? Container ships will not pass under it.
      When assessing the possible parameters of the Eurasia canal, it is possible to use vessels of the river-sea class with a carrying capacity of 10 thousand tons, ships close to the Seaway Max class with a carrying capacity of about 28,5 thousand tons, new ships specially designed for Eurasia with a carrying capacity up to 50 thousand tons. The draft of river-sea class vessels with a carrying capacity of 10 thousand tons will be about 5 meters, the draft of Seaway Max class vessels is 7,9-8 meters.

        Right? Let's compare:
        Panamax type container ship. As mentioned above, the dimensions of the Panamax vessels are determined mainly by the parameters of the lock chambers: width - 33,53 m, length - 320 m, height - 25,9 m. The useful length of each chamber for setting up the vessel is 304,8 m.

        The main span of the bridge is 33 to 35 meters (108 to 115 ft) above sea level; The Ukrainian Maritime Authority says many vessels are too large to safely pass under the bridge. Bulk carrier Kopan (17 DWT) solved this problem by cutting off the top of her mast.

      This project has been discussed hundreds of times. It is not feasible for the simple reason that there is nothing to fill it with, the flow of the Don spruce is enough to ensure its own navigation, where there are mainly exchanges of 3500 tons, and here ocean ships dream of navigating. Moreover, the greatest depth of the Sea of ​​Azov is 13!!!! Meters, the average is 7-8, I generally keep quiet about the ecology of the Caspian Sea.

      No, the Volga-Chogray canal was enough for us, we are still raking up the consequences. I personally saw what it led to. Then a part of my small homeland - Kalmykia, almost did not pass into the category of deserts. Violating nature!

    Russia has the opportunity to operate without problems 3 warships transferred to Russia with the Crimea, 2 ships of project 1124 and a ship of project 1241 (/1/7/8). At the same time, the replacement of Project 1204 can be completed in the short term, which will lead to a significant improvement for the Caspian Flotilla.

    The most important of the ships handed over to Russia with Crimea, the Project 775 ship is likely to work in the Black Sea Fleet for local work. In this regard, it seems likely that another project 775 ship of the Black Sea Fleet will be transferred to the Pacific Fleet and a Project 1171 ship will be transferred from the Pacific Fleet to the Black Sea Fleet, which will be concentrated in the operation to provide assistance to Syria.

    The 2 Project 266 ships handed over to Russia along with Crimea will most likely be the first in line to help the Donetsk and Luhansk Republics if Ukraine finally receives British minesweepers.

    And the last of the seven warships transferred to Russia along with the Crimea, the Project 641 submarine, most likely, has begun the process of conservation as a museum. It can be expected that the Project 1134 Ochakov will follow the same path, especially considering that this is the last surviving Project XNUMX ship, and none was mothballed.

    (Automatically translated from English. Below is the original commentary in English)

    Russia has the option of operating without problems 3 of the combat ships incorporated to Russia with Crimea, the 2 ships of the Project 1124 and the ship of the Project 1241( /1/7/8). Whith it the replacement of the Project 1204 can be completed in the short term, with the result of a strong improvement for the Caspian Flotilla.

    The most important of the ships incorporated to Russia with Crimea, the ship of the Project 775, is likely to do operate in the Black Sea Fllet for local work. With it, it seems likely the transfer of other ship of the Project 775 of the Black Sea Fleet to the Pacific Fleet, and the transfer of the ship of the Project 1171 from the Pacific Fleet to the Black Sea Fleet, to be focused in the operation to help Syria.

    The 2 ships of the Project 266 incorporated to Russia with Crimea are very likely first in line for help to the Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk, if Ukraine finally receives the British minesweepers.

    And the last of the seven combat ships incorporated to Russia with Crimea, the submarine of the Project 641, very likely started the process for conservation as a museum. It is expectable that the Ochakov, of the Project 1134 follow the same way inminently taking into account that it is the last surviving ship of the Project and no-one has been conserved.
