In addition, the complex of training sessions included work on measuring the magnetic fields of the ship, as well as testing the performance of systems that provide flights for deck fighters Su-33.

"In a short time, Admiral Kuznetsov will be part of the shipboard strike group, which will work out a number of training and combat missions at the sea fleets of the Northern Fleet," said Serga.

        the training package includes work on measuring the magnetic fields of the ship, as well as testing the performance of systems that support the flight of carrier-based Su-33 fighters.

        It is streamlined, but it logically follows that there will be no flights themselves, otherwise they would have been written about them. Sadness ...

        But why do we need to go to the Thames, there is dampness and mists. To erase it from the face of the earth and it will end.

          No ... I have never been on the banks of the Thames ... I might be interested in looking at nature there ... and the forests will still spoil ... the banks of the river ... although I think fishing there is not very good there) )

        It will fit, we will ask Yuri Dolgoruky to be expanded ... And as an additional argument that Kuznetsov must pass along the Thames, we must also add Peter the Great ...

      ..it is high time to train combat crews ... that's just a little in the wrong area ... not in the Barents or Mediterranean Sea ... but in SARGASOVO ... There the climate is softer and ... closer ... And the launch of GRANITES will be better heard ... where necessary!
      And it’s easy to justify conducting exercises in this area - you are launching BRs not far from us, why shouldn’t we? ... Yes, and with these exercises we show terrorists and other bad countries - outcasts that we will fight with terrorists everywhere ... everywhere we will defend our country from Iranian missile launches .... even in the Gulf of Mexico ...

    "Admiral Kuznetsov" is the only Russian aircraft carrier.

    This is what annoys against the background of current events in the world.

          Just imagine: sudden teachings pass, well, those that were recently, where the guys in 4 in the morning picked up and checked their combat readiness.

    Perhaps the Northern Fleet is combing and preparing to cover the SSBN deployment area, but they do not need to go to the "Mediterranean lake", and our "sworn friends" understand this.

    I’ll put a small spoonful of tar in a barrel of honey, he won’t reach the Mediterranean Sea, Kuznetsov requires overhaul and urgently and the whole problem is that there’s nowhere to do it, the repair base remained behind the hill ..... Yes, and about the Thames you got excited , open any source and you will find out that England has exactly three of them ... Yes, and when compared with Amer, our displacement is 58 tons. and at their 108t.t and in the area of ​​the alleged hostilities they have two ......

      The situation in the Navy, when a dozen living ships are chasing the willow mane, due to the lack of new ones, as well as the lack of timely repairs, threatens the ships to stand up due to running out of motor resources.

    it’s necessary to stand on the Admiral so that it would be better to launch missiles launched in Syria, so that the American establishment, headed by black-assed scum, finally understands who it is dealing with!

    And how many in fact on the Kuz aircraft in the wing, huh? There is no wing, and therefore an aircraft carrier.

    According to the project, Kuznetsov had up to 50 vehicles:
    26 × MiG-29K / Su-27K
    4 × Ka-27RLD
    18 × Ka-27 / Ka-29
    2 × Ka-27PS
    As a result, his air group now consists of 20hSu-33, 4hSu-25, 15hKa-27, 2hKa-31. Roughly speaking now - he has the largest number - the air group is practically incorporated into the project. It’s hard to say what the air group is. Sources say that such a group, while the drying itself is quite new, began to enter service most of the time in the late 90s, which is quite good for airplanes.
    Yes Kuzya can behave the same as multipurpose and bomb everything and everything with an air wing, but:
    1. there is no AWACS aircraft (a helicopter instead)
    2. The composition of the Su-33 is very small because it’s not very large (in comparison with Nimts) a lot of useful space inside is occupied by a boiler farm, it carries a bunch of anti-submarine helicopters and UTG su -25 (to teach youth)
    3. there seems to be no refueling aircraft
    Due to the small composition of strike aircraft and the lack of refueling with a normal AWACS, it is difficult to fully accomplish the tasks of air strikes, but giving combat stability to operational naval units (that is, strengthening / guarding) is just the thing: to repel reconnaissance aircraft and ward off aircraft from boats, a horde of helicopters and missiles to shoot and radars on board the enemy’s not shitty range to detect on the approach and the complex of their own space communications (only on heavy cruisers).

      Alas ... There are only 10 SU-33s and helicopters on the Kuz. So he is not an aircraft carrier, and so he went out for a walk. Smack however.

    Kuznetsov is the only hope of carrier-based aviation !!! If you write it off, then experience, knowledge and most importantly people related to aircraft carriers will be lost !!! If even after 25 years we have 10 aircraft carriers, then there will be no hurt. Let them work out on the only one so far !!! Good luck to them.

    A trip to the coast of Syria is not planned in the near future, the Russian Defense Ministry told Interfax on Thursday.

    “In the presence of the TAVKR in the Mediterranean, there is no need, since there is a Russian Navy group capable of fulfilling all possible tasks,” the agency’s interlocutor said.

    Earlier it was reported that until recently TAVKR was undergoing scheduled repairs and maintenance. It was planned that at the beginning of the 2014 year he would go on a long trip to the Mediterranean Sea.

    Now the cruiser performs live firing in the Barents Sea. According to the agency’s interlocutor, “in October, carrier-based aircraft will begin flying from his side.”

    Since Syria’s air defense is not a fountain, and everyone understands this. It’s just to provide humanitarian aid in the form of target designations. And it’s more expensive to direct missiles at our Navy .. I hope our missiles will fly where we need to .. Syria doesn’t even need to turn on the radar ..
