For the first time in 30 years, the Russian warship will travel around the world

For the first time in 30 years, the Russian warship will travel around the worldThe representative of the press service department of the Ministry of Defense for the Navy, Captain 1st Rank Igor Dygalo said that the Baltic Oceanographic research vessel fleet "Admiral Vladimirsky" for the first time from 1983 from August to December this year will go around the world.

For the last time, in 1983, the Admiral Vladimirsky also performed a world mission, the Itar-Tass news agency said.

“This time the vessel will leave St. Petersburg, pass through the Northern Sea Route (NSR), cross the Pacific and Atlantic oceans and return to St. Petersburg. World tour will take more than four months. Its most crucial stage is the study of the capabilities of the NSR, ”said Dygalo.

On board the vessel, specialists will conduct hydrographic, hydrological, cartographic and meteorological studies, observations of currents, and marine biological observations.

Currently, according to Dygalo, the Admiral Vladimirsky is being intensively prepared for the Around the World tour. The vessel is undergoing repairs at the Kanonersky plant in St. Petersburg.

“In the process of repair, its life support systems are being updated, and the equipment with the necessary equipment for working in various latitudes is being updated,” he added.

"Admiral Vladimirsky" has on board two hydrographic survey boats, 19 specialized laboratories. It is also equipped with a crane for 7 tons and two cranes for 250 kg. There is a platform and a hangar for one helicopter.

The last circumnavigation of the ships of the Russian Navy was the Antarctic expedition 1983 of the year, when the Admiral Vladimirsky and another research vessel, Faddey Bellingsgausen, repeated the path of the Russian Antarctic expedition on the sloops Vostok and Mirny (1819-1821).

As a result of complex oceanological studies, new data were obtained on the bottom topography, temperature and salinity of sea water, currents, soils and meteorological elements. The 178 seamounts and hills were discovered, the position of the 13 islands in the Southern Ocean, including Beaufort, Bounty, Antipodes, Beauvais, Franklin, Scott, Peter I, and others, was clarified.

The absence of the islands of Terra Nova has been proven. For the first time, the position of the South magnetic pole was determined after it was moved from the continent to the D'Urville Sea, which has important theoretical and practical significance.

Over 147 days more than 33 thousand miles were traveled, of which 13 thousand were in ice and icebergs, while the Admiral Vladimirsky in McMurdo Strait reached the southernmost point to which the domestic ships arrived.

    The good news is, science should move forward, and help to military sailors will not be superfluous, not without reason a military ship. I think the possibilities of the vessel after retrofitting will increase significantly, we are happy and the envy of the enemies.

      I completely agree, in addition to the Airborne Forces, we also need to scout the SMP itself

        science is also a kind of intelligence for the next generation.

      The news is really good good And at the expense of science, then yes, it will move, my friend in the Soviet era urgently served on such a project - for scientific purposes they dangled along all the maneuvers of the USA fleet in Tikhoi, and after that from the KGB a military order was pasted on the mobile ticket. Solely for the sake of alarm in the interests of science, somewhere to urgently swim laughing An old steamer, soon a new series of "scientific ships" will be launched 18280, here "Yuri Ivanov" is already afloat, you see, too, will go around the balloon exclusively for scientific purposes. Our middle "scientific" ship has already visited Cuba.

    An American warship "picks" the Romanian and Bulgarian shores of the Black Sea.
    Russian warship explores the oceans around the world.
    Compare, huh?
    What's cooler?

    I am glad that the goal is scientific. Without the development of Russia's own science, Russia will never be a great power. It is worth investing in energy and money.

    The news is good, the idea itself is true. But in light of recent events, a provocation against the ship is quite possible. So the ship must be covered with something inconspicuous and well-armed. They say there are such things - submarines, some already with vigorous filling. Send at least one such wonder to cover and periodically change it on the route.
    All jokes, but the Somali pirates can even be in Antarctica, if their owners so wish. And on the ship itself it is worth having a group of "minders" of 10-15 people with a full repair kit. Also against the pirates.

    Finally, a flag demonstration began in all parts of the world. It was high time, now it’s hot, apparently. Such campaigns are necessary for both scientific, military and propaganda purposes. Especially in the conditions of gradual settlement of the NSR, where it is necessary to renew hydrographic and meteorological observations.

    The author of the article is Dygalo. I remember his first "correct comments" on the sinking of the Kursk submarine ... I hate it !!! (IMHO).
