Military Review

36-I brigade of missile boats, Baltiysk


... already a long time ago, since July, our Russian Navy did not take pictures, and something had to be done with this. So I did :) In mid-April there was a trip to the Kaliningrad region, the city of Baltiysk - the main base of the Baltic fleet. Going out to sea on a missile boat for two days - gave rocket fire. What I managed to shoot in the sea - I will definitely show a little later. In the meantime, postcards with boats and MRCs (small missile ships).

The 36 brigade of missile boats is one of the main strike forces of the Baltic Fleet; it consists of the 1 Guards Division of missile boats and the 106 Division of small rocket ships. The crews and boats of the brigade shot earlier, but it was beautiful and with a soul to shoot them at the pier, in the database, it was possible only now - the base itself is a closed area, there are no other approaches and survey points only from the ship passing through the Baltic Canal. Well, now it turned out to be done :) It was about an hour of time to stroll around the base before going out to sea, and half the frames were already taken from the side of the missile boat. The picture above is just the majority of the brigade in one frame.

2. Spring landscape in backlight :) Left and a little behind - IRC "Rain", and in front and to the right - the rocket boat P-47.

3. Airborne 852 - missile boat Р-129 pr 12411Т. Already familiar :) - he filmed it beautifully in Baltiysk last year on the day of the fleet (see photos here and here).

4. Small rocket ship "Geyser" pr. 12341.

5. Again, "Geyser" and the same type with him IRC "Zyb." In total, there are such a ship on the Baltic Fleet 4 - there is still “Downpour” (it already was and still will be) and Passat (during my visit - stood in the 33 of the SRH).

6. Next - already footage from the water. Rocket boat P-257 pr 12411T.

7. Geyser, Zyb, and P-257.

8. Rocket boats Р-129 pr. 12411Т and "Morshansk" pr. 12411.

9. Morshansk (left) and P-2 (right).

10. The Zarechny missile boat, 12411 Ave., was also well able to be removed last year in the ranks at the bottom of the Navy in Baltiysk.

11. And on the "Rain" ship item. But more about this - in the next post :)

    The photoshoot is nice, but for some reason incomplete. Maybe not all the ships were in the base? For RTO project 1234.1, the information is complete. But for RCA project 1241 - no. There is a desire to supplement, but there is no way to supplement with photographs.
    So in the press there was information that the RCA R-129 of project 1241.1T (with onboard - 852) was named "Kuznetsk". Also, I did not see the photo of the R-291 "Dimitrovgrad" RCA (tail number - 825). And the RCA R-47 photographed by you in the last photo in the background (with tail number - 819) is not indicated by you in the captions under the photo. I was glad to supplement the article. Best regards to the author. We look forward to continuing. A larger photo is impossible?

      Yes, and on the GPS navigator it is desirable to note the coordinates. And send somewhere to Langley

        your naivety smiled. "It is desirable to mark the coordinates on the GPS-navigator." For half a century there has been tracking from space, and you are trying to hide the coordinates. Suffice it to recall the "informative" Soviet tourist maps and atlases of highways. So that the spien cannot be brought to the object ... but ordinary people who bought these "maps" were tormented by secrecy.

      It’s nice to see your home base, only you were allowed to go there so strictly now, and there’s still no photo of my ship R-291 on board number 825, if it works, throw off the photo I will be very happy,

    Completely hit head angle? And then in Langley do not know, they all got satellites? And the author probably filmed from under the floor without permission from the authorities? And I learned a lot of secrets to Tuev ... We must already understand where the secret information is and where not ...

      First, it’s better to learn how to recognize jokes, and then everything else. But it’s like in a joke: in a conversation with a major, first say - a joke, and then joke.

    It was there that the minesweepers saw the guard and the guard, and then the ensign didn’t even miss the bottle for a bottle))))

    On Google Maps all of these moorings, ships and boats in very good resolution :-)

    I was curious about google maps. Yes, the positions of a brigade of missile boats in the Sevastopolsk Bay, 6 units, are quite distinguishable. By the way, both "Bison" are at the docks. Part of the base is darkened, but all the same, 6-7 warships of the main classes, some kind of reconnaissance ship, minesweepers, etc., are clearly visible.
    It is very curious to consider all sorts of military objects from outer space, especially military

    Gentlemen! It is alarming that “everyone” can take secret photos and put them on public display! You understand the fact that the satellites that observe our fleet and strategic objects fall into the ghost zone (they see false objects - "disinformation") and they do not see our objects, unlike the corrupt warrant officers, officers, soldiers, reserve officers or chatty onlookers which are allowed to pass by the military because of their carelessness, money, etc. It’s sad that people don’t think about these questions! I read information that inflatable ships, tanks, planes, etc. slip into Western satellites (Google maps, etc.) and conduct a tremendous information war! Disinformation and analytical, operational work is carried out every day! I have the honor!

      What a disinformation! :-) In Baltiysk, from the channel fairway, through which ships pass to Kaliningrad and vice versa, the pools in which the ships stand are perfectly visible. Boats and yachts, foreign ships go along this channel. In general, in many countries in the same harbor, on the one hand, is a commercial port, on the other, there are warships. And nothing! No inflatable dishes for you.

        You can immediately see an ordinary person! I’m not familiar with the secret service! Maybe they go, but everything else is hidden from ordinary eyes, then she and the secret service! Do you want to say that you were in Baltiysk in all military units? do not make me laugh! laughing

      Drop it, dear. We live in the 21 century ... Have you ever had to see space images with a resolution of 0,25 meter? You can even enclose a military base from prying eyes with a stone wall, but you can’t put such a wall to the sky ...
      ... and I have never seen an inflatable cruiser or even a missile boat in 12 years of service in the fleet (naval crew of the SF) ...

        Yes! But I also read about inflatable tanks, planes, ships! Maybe the truth! We are not given to know everything! Much secret! Although they write a lot, publish it to fight the intelligence of the enemy ... There is a confrontation!

    Thank you Kind person for the material provided. Anton, this is a balm for the soul. From1989 to 1992 I served in this 36th brigade. Moreover, I did not even expect to see my native RK-257 (airborne 833) afloat and in full Health. By the way, I found then a completely new one, which came from St. Petersburg RK-129 which is also on the photo. It has been more than 20 years since the end of the service, but I still dream of the Baltic Sea, our harbor and my sailor friends. Glory DKBF !!!!!)))))
