The third detachment of the Pacific Fleet will go on a long march

37



October 19th Pacific War Warships fleet under the command of Captain 1st Rank Andrei Kuznetsov, as part of the Admiral Vinogradov BPK, the Irkut medium sea tanker and the Kalar tugboat, he will leave the main base of the Pacific Fleet in Vladivostok to perform tasks in the ocean zone of the Asia-Pacific Region (APR).

The detachment will spend a long hike about two months and visit the ports of Myanmar and the Republic of Korea. In the South Korean port of Pusan, Russian sailors will be on an unofficial visit and will take part in the Kormarin-2013 naval equipment and weapons exhibition.

Two units of the Pacific Fleet already perform combat missions in the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. The current squadron will be the third detachment of the Pacific Fleet in service in the ocean zone.

The ships of the detachment more than once took part in long hikes. For example, the BOD Admiral Vinogradov twice performed the tasks of protecting civilian shipping in the Gulf of Aden, participated in the Russian-Chinese exercises Marine Interaction in 2012 and 2013, and this summer in the Bering Sea provided landing of the polar landing in Provideniya Bay.

      Well, yes ... only the detachment again: a tanker, a tugboat (certainly) ... and one ship, not fresh ... it’s not a hike to perform tasks (what the hell is the task of the old BOD, with old equipment?) to maintain shipping skills.

      On October 19, a detachment of warships of the Pacific Fleet under the command of captain 1 rank Andrei Kuznetsov, consisting of BOD Admiral Vinogradov, the medium sea tanker Irkut and the tugboat Kalar, will leave the main base of the Pacific Fleet of Vladivostok to carry out tasks in the Asian-Pacific region Pacific Region (ATP).


      I did not know that the average marine tanker and tug are warships.

      and it was impossible to simply write that the BOD "Adimral Vinogradov" with two auxiliary ships will leave the base to perform a mission in the region?

    In general, the fact that the Russian Defense Ministry has come out of the crisis is encouraging. Probably, some of the power still decided to feed their army and navy than the enemy's army, and this pleases. This is precisely why all "democratic" Europe is nervous. Just. as under Misha Gorby, now you can't rob Russia. You can get it in the teeth. The crisis has shown who is capable of what. Europe negative .

        You know, if it depended on me, Abramovich had to sell not only Chelsea, but also his last cowards along with Pelorus. If only warships were in abundance and went on long voyages regularly. Then, perhaps, the press service will stop counting tugs with tankers as warships. In the meantime, alas ...

But, about this type of ships not a word in the press, that's what is alarming. And in the first place they tried to eliminate them in the 90s. In general, everything is being done so that there is no threat of the AUG, in particular, they want to replace the "Granites". Here I am. So, Mr. "evil" is somewhat right ...

      Everything is lost. From Pacific Fleet in distant seas now:
      Detachment BOD Admiral Panteleev.
      Squad Cruiser Varyag.
      Detachment BOD Admiral Vinogradov.

      As for tankers and tugs, so where to get the fuel? A tugboat is used as an auxiliary vessel on a long voyage, and in Aden they often escort convoys at all.

      In the United States, a slightly different scheme, if necessary, a tug is ordered at the nearest base, of which there are many, and not necessarily US Navi, they take private traders, including foreign private traders, with a bang. The supply is provided by multi-functional supply vessels, while we do not have such and we have to use a tanker.

      Here Vinogradov during the exercises near Chukotka (September of this year), when more than 30 ships and ships were involved, conducted live firing with anti-ship missiles, air defense systems, torpedoes, artillery, and in general with everything that was and for the first time landed mass assaults in Providence Bay.

    The tasks are exactly the same as those currently performed by the BOD "Admiral Panteleev" - the protection of navigation in the Somalia zone, the demonstration of the flag, well (this is standard - to have a look, listen to what you can) wink

    PF in general this year No. 1 in activity among all fleets of the country.

    Vinogradov only ran from Chukotka (more than 30 ships and Pacific Fleet ships at large exercises with live firing) and already fled to Asia.

    By the way their other runners, the new Corvette savvy. His track record for this year:
    1) Denmark and Sweden.
    2) Belgium and Brest.
    3) West 2013.
    4) Irish port of Cork (just came yesterday).

        it seems like they say that the 20380s smoke only when starting diesels or accelerating "diesels", it seems like the pressurization system does not supply enough air for complete combustion of the fuel, and after entering the operating mode, the smoke disappears?

          Why are these "X-35" - "Uranus" - given to you? Well, all the same "Harpoons" - only in profile. The problem is in target designation systems: and it doesn't matter - it will be sharpened under the "Volcanoes", "Granites", "Basalts", "Mosquitoes", "Uranians" or "Termites". If there is no satellite / aviation system (I, of course, I am speaking in a simplified way) target designation - no price for any missile from the above list.

            There are no problems with launches and target designation of the X-35, but only by their own means. At an over-the-horizon range on an external control center, like any other ship in the world.

            There are problems with Redoubt, or rather, the work of Redoubt through Furke.

              If there is no satellite /aviation system (I, of course, simplistically say) target designation is worthless to any rocket from the above list.

        1) Well this is the Pacific Fleet - the factory is completely nonexistent, plus a lot of difficulties with cooperation. SV Stoykoy will hand over next year. There will be a connection of the same type of 4 ships on the BF. In terms of time, well, it’s clear that for a long time, but it’s better than nothing at all.
        2) There are no problems with the X-35, the TsU with its own means gives it the horizon like any other ship in the world. If anything, then Petya and Moscow shoot in the same way, because there is no global system (it only unfolds, or rather one satellite). With Redoubt, the usual problems, recall how many years Aster tried to teach to shoot and hit?
        3) Like this one, he smokes like a pipelatz? Keep a picture of a democratic ship, which is made by an advanced world naval power with a similar GEM.

    Spsb for info. From this, no less sad - for the campaigns of our Pacific Fleet-ovovskie BOD - the motor resource has already been killed to zero. In December, all four went to dock repairs, all cars were killed (well, the plan is for Zvezda, in the 30th, in Dalzavod - it was not smart enough to use the 42nd shipyard).

      Yes, this approach is well-known, to travel in public. I fished in Kamchatka, I saw such bloopers as "the hand of friendship". He stopped himself, manually, the poor fellow. I would have known what could end, hell would have climbed. There is no system, everything is swoop, emergency, with a bang.

        For Rogozin they made a "Potemkin Village" and then, he read that he was being bred. At the "Zvezda" now just control paralysis.
        To "neigh" I can tell you that the crew of the boat (no matter which one) has been flying to Kamchatka for two weeks - in groups, no more than 5 people, and every day - a lottery. When did this happen? They flew in crews all their lives.

      And again, untruth. One BOD is undergoing repairs - Admiral Tributs, and they are preparing it for repairs from spring.

      Shaposhnikov is preparing for preventive care and leaving for Aden in February-March.
      Vinogradov goes to Asia, with a reserve in case of complication of the situation in Syria (then goes to strengthening, if not, then after NG home official application 2 month campaign).
      Panteleev - leads patrols in Aden, it is planned to return home in November and early December.

      In repair one BOD.

    Past PPD Small Ulysses - I go there in the morning, from there from there. All the movements of the fleet are in the palm of your hand. Plus, I travel on business trips, on all SHA FEB. And former subordinates do not forget hi

      Office - inland b. Golden Horn. The windows of one of the apartments are on Vostochny Bosphorus.

      Clearly understandable, then in the course of events. And, I worked in B. Kamen at the Vostok ZSO, I was in Vladik, the blessed land, everything is there, in the summer the warm sea. The sea is alive, unlike the Black Trepang, hedgehogs, different living creatures ... The main thing is that you have fewer Chinese people, otherwise we will eat everything and everything with chopsticks.
      Cavtorang, I propose to switch to "you" in the next communication, if it is convenient of course. Also excuse me, I somehow went on you in the question of RBU request .

    In principle, if all planned types of repairs are completed on time, and modernization is also carried out on medium ones, then even old people could still serve a dozen years and even pains. But we have a fun situation. You can not spank screws on infinitely extended resources and overdue repairs, but getting into a repair is fraught! Especially in the Far East. You can rattle for five to ten years, or even the ship can no longer be seen.
    Tugboats accompanied not by a good life appeared. There were earlier, of course, but not always. This is after Kuznetsov shamefully nearly ran aground, after the failure of all boilers in bulk, it became an obligation.

      You tell us this at the Baltika SRZK - which in Tsushima almost heroically drowned. Only I recommend that you prepare your escape routes in advance. It can be very painful.

      Yes, so, almost drowned herself, heroically. Right in the Tsushima Strait. The storm is 7 points. The words of Kom.Flot sounded brilliant at the morning gay pride parade at the Fleet Command Post: "Yes? Well, then next time - he will go with a tug ..." - the star is shocked!

    Y-yes ... As they say, no comment! Although 7 points is a serious thing, but ... I can imagine what happened during the last "surprise check of combat readiness". From the berths they moved everything that is still afloat and can somehow move the screws.

    Well - that’s how it was. Unfortunately - the way it is.
    From my level I am a former deputy (No. 2 - combat) chief of the fleet’s headquarters (accordingly, a combat control operator), everything was through one place and it remained so - very sad.

    I'm afraid that now the situation is incomparably worse. By and by, the officers of the Soviet era go to the reserve. Those whose formation took place in the 90s and zero years come to command posts. I saw those who handed over tolerances for independent control of the ship without having any autonomy or a long hike. More than half of naval schools, including specialized ones, have sunk into oblivion. VMA Kuznetsova trains officers on an abbreviated program. The ships themselves are hopelessly aging, and the update is negligible. The next update at the Pacific Fleet, if I am not mistaken, will be the Mistrals in a couple of years. Sadly, this is not the right word.

    Here is the service of the guys, you will not envy

    Yeah. I have this video in two versions (with / without mat). Northerners shared.
    I mean, maybe the gifted ones will understand what 7-9 points are (by the way, in the video - the usual North Atlantic at this time of year - or a storm, or a storm - this is everyday. Well, how did the convoys go?) And how while the crew feels themselves, and what weapons can be used?
    7 points in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk on a "punt" - "paratrooper" project 775 (special flight 12 GUMO) - we were accompanied at gunpoint by the Japanese, due to the specifics of the cargo, just to take refuge in the bay. They left, having made sure of our safety, they left through the storm.
    About weapons - I can say - nothing is applicable. To Thomas the Unbelievers, who have never recounted the forehead of a bulkhead in the stormtrooper, once again revise the video.

    And here on the site I already once said how else at the floating practice in the school at the MRC they left Liepaja in the direction of the torrential zone and got into a chatter of 4-5 points. He wrote that already at 4 points the ship was practically not combat ready. And 5 points for this project was the limit of seaworthiness. They didn’t believe and even zamusnovali. good
