Military Review

Thursday will be a scheduled meeting of NATO defense ministers

20
On Thursday, a scheduled meeting of NATO defense ministers will be held, during which issues of strengthening collective defense, the situation in Syria and the Russian military operation in the country, as well as the situation in Afghanistan against the background of the shelling of a hospital in Kunduz by US forces will be discussed.




Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that ministers plan to take a number of decisions to increase their defenses, in particular, new staff cells, which, if necessary, will contribute to the deployment of alliance forces in the region and coordinate exercises, will appear in Slovakia and Hungary. Earlier, similar command centers appeared in Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Lithuania, Bulgaria and Romania.

In addition, the ministers will review the military concept of the NATO Forced Response Force, which previously planned to include up to 40 thousands of troops, naval and air components. In addition, in the course of the negotiations, it is planned to discuss long-term measures to adapt to new threats, including the “military activities” of the Russian Federation, including in the field of a nuclear deterrence strategy. NATO’s security challenges from the south will also be brought to the attention of ministers.

The “hot” topic of the talks will be the situation in Syria and the actions of the Russian Federation in the territory of this country. Prior to the start of Russian strikes on IS positions on the territory of Syria, it was planned that cooperation with the Russian Federation in the fight against terrorists would also be discussed.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin applied for permission to the Federation Council to use the Russian armed forces outside the country. This appeal has been approved, and is currently Russian aviation inflicts targeted air strikes on positions of militants of the “Islamic State” in Syria.

        I would venture to speak out in terms of what I am for the expansion of the NATO alliance! Yes, yes, do not be surprised! Let them expand, let them take Georgia, Azerbaijan, and most importantly let them take the ruin! Why?! Yes because! As practice shows, the larger the cabinet, the louder it falls! The larger the association of US motley mongrel, the more difficult it is to manage and the more resources are spent on their maintenance, not on the military component, but on officials and generals! And if ho * chls get there, then amba, they will even sell what is hidden in the mattress behind seven locks!

        So NATO is “Wellcome To Hell”!

    I’m wondering what our President and Minister of Defense are still up to date? What else do they want to surprise (put on sight) us and the whole world? Maybe they will try something else interesting there on the IG?

    Putin's missile surprise for ISIS and the USA

    The operation against the terrorists from the Islamic State group, which is being conducted by the Russian Space Forces in Syria, has also been joined by the country's Navy. On the morning of October 7, four ships of the Caspian Flotilla completed 26 launches of cruise missiles at 11 militant positions in Syria. All targets were hit.
    Expert Opinion

    The director of the Russian Orthodox Analytical Information Agency, Konstantin Dushenov, considers this event to be the most important geopolitical fact, fundamentally changing the balance of power both in this region and in the world as a whole.
    The fact that our missile ships fired on ISIS fighters from the Caspian Sea is a most important geopolitical fact, fundamentally changing the balance of forces in this region and in the world as a whole.

    Let me remind you, a year ago, in the article "Uncle Vova's Surprises" I wrote:

    “September 23, Putin arrived in Novorossiysk to hold a meeting on port development. At this meeting, Admiral Vitko reported to him on the construction progress of the Black Sea Fleet base in Novorossiysk. In particular, the admiral said: "The submarines that will be based here have long-range cruise missiles, and the secrecy of the submarines' exit from their bases in Novorossiysk is an order of magnitude higher than in Sevastopol." And when the president asked exactly what range these missiles had, the Black Sea Fleet commander replied: “More than one and a half thousand kilometers. The submarine pier area holds eight submarines, but so far it is planned to have seven. At the end of 2016, everything will be completely completed. ”

    This dialogue was shown by all central TV channels, all the country's news agencies wrote about it.

    “Well, what's wrong with that?”, The inexperienced reader will ask.

    To understand the scale of this “surprise”, we must first say a few words about those submarines that will soon be deployed in the Novorossiysk naval base. According to media reports, this is a submarine of project 636.3 - a deep modernization of the so-called Varshavyanka.

    "Varshavyanka" was the third generation of large diesel-battery submarines in the Soviet Navy. The first generation of these submarines - the 641 project - was called "glands", the second - 641B - "rubber bands", because It was the first domestic "dizelyuha" with a rubberized light body. In 1983, the third-generation submarines of the 877 project, called “Varshavyanka”, appeared because they were supposed to arm not only the Soviet Navy, but also the fleets of our allies under the Warsaw Pact. The current upgraded version of this submarine is operated under the code "project 636".

    Initially, the Varshavyank ammunition did not provide for missile weapons at all. The development of cruise missiles adapted for launch from the Varshavyanka started only in 1983, when the submarines of the 877th project were already part of the Soviet Navy, and the first demonstration of these missiles took place ten years later, in 1993- m At first, the Biryuza cruise missile was intended for the Varshavyanka of project 877, later the Caliber, the maximum firing range of which, according to open sources, does not exceed 300 km.

    "Varshavyanka" 877-th project since its inception has become the largest and most powerful non-nuclear submarine in the world, and subsequently - the only non-nuclear submarine in the world, equipped with rocket weapons. The rockets themselves, which are included in its ammunition, are the first in our fleet samples of cruise missiles fired from torpedo tubes with a diameter of 533 mm. Prior to that, of such torpedo tubes, only ballistic missiles 81Р, 83Р, 84Р and their modifications were used. In nuclear equipment, they were operated from the mid-70-s, and in the version of rocket-torpedoes - from the mid-80-x. At the same time, the range of their flight did not exceed 50 km.

    And now the commander of the Black Sea Fleet is reporting to the President of Russia that from now on these submarines will be armed with cruise missiles that can hit targets at distances of MORE THAN THOUSAND THOUSAND KILOMETERS! If all this is true (well, the admiral does not lie to his commander in chief!), And the Russian gunsmiths managed to push a cruise missile with a range of 533 km into the dimensions of a 1500-mm torpedo tube, then this is truly a breakthrough, an outstanding achievement of the Russian defense industry! Moreover, this actually means a complete collapse of the American military strategy and a qualitative change in the balance of forces in favor of Russia. For now, any warship of the Russian fleet - not only a boat, but also a surface ship - become carriers of strategic missile weapons. Why strategic? Because the equipment of such miracle rockets with nuclear ammunition is only a matter of time and the political will of the Kremlin!

    As for surface ships, a separate explanation is needed here. If these new long-range missiles really do not exceed the dimensions of the Caliber missile system - after all, it is it that is installed on the Varshavyanki - then, of course, they can be included in the ammunition of any ship that is equipped with this complex. But the fact is that the “Caliber”, if desired, is easy to install on ALL ships of the Russian Navy, from missile boats to cruisers! The only question is the number of missiles, which, indeed, depends on the displacement of the ship.

    And then - attention! - we are waiting for another surprise.

    29 September 2014, the world media reported on the "Caspian Summit", which was attended by the heads of five Caspian states: Russia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan. The participants of this summit agreed on a political statement in which they for the first time unanimously fixed future agreements on the status of the Caspian Sea.

    Vladimir Putin commented on this event as follows: “The main thing is that we have agreed a political statement in which the basic principles of five-sided cooperation in the Caspian Sea were first set forth. The agreements reached are in the long-term interests of all parties. ” He also said that the interaction of the five Caspian littoral states would strengthen security in the region, because the "five" agreed that the presence of "outside" armed forces would be excluded in the region.

    Against this background, media reports that nine small missile ships of project 21631 Buyan-M will be included in the combat structure of the Caspian flotilla of the Russian Federation are of particular interest. These brisk ships, equipped with water-jet engines, with a displacement of only 950 tons, can, if necessary, even be based on the Volga, as they are specially designed as river-sea-class vessels. But most importantly, despite their small size, they are also equipped with a Caliber missile system with eight missiles in a vertical launcher.

    Three of these ships are already in operation, the rest should be included in the fleet by 2018. But if we assume that they will be armed with “conventional” missiles with a range of up to 300 km, then it is completely unclear against whom Russia intends to use these weapons in the Caspian. One such missile is capable of sinking a destroyer, but not one of the Caspian littoral states has ships of this class! And ground targets can be destroyed by “ordinary” missiles only in the territories of Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Iran, which today is completely unnecessary ...

    But if we assume that the Buyans will be equipped with new long-range missiles, the same as the Novorossiysk Varshavyanki, everything will immediately fall into place. The INF Treaty, signed by Moscow and Washington back in 1987, still prohibits Russia from deploying ground-based missiles with a range of over 500 km. But this prohibition does not apply to sea-based missiles. And this means that nine "Buyans", if they are armed with a new superweapon, will be capable of destroying up to 72 targets at a range of over 1500 km in one gulp.

    Given the size of the Caspian water area, which is now becoming a common “launch pad” for Buyan, it is easy to understand that their target will be a huge region of Eurasia. And if we add to this the rockets that will be placed on Varshavyanka in the Black Sea, it turns out that colossal spaces will fall under their scope. Warsaw and Rome, Baghdad and Kabul, the bases of the US 6 Mediterranean fleet and its strike ship groups, Israel and the lion's share of the southern coast of the Mediterranean Sea will be under the gun of the new Russian missiles.

    And this despite the fact that neither in the Black Sea, nor, moreover, in the Caspian Sea, the USA can deploy any forces to counter this new unexpected “Russian threat”! In the Black Sea, the Montreux Convention of 1936 prevents this, and the leaders of the Caspian states declared that they would not tolerate any foreign military presence in the Caspian region.

    You can’t say anything, Putin has prepared a good “surprise” for our “American partners”! The State Department and the Pentagon will have something to think about at their leisure. ”
