In the West, noted the success of the Russian Navy, but doubt their durability

104
Western analysts have noted that the Russian Federation has become much more active in using its fleet, while they are wondering how long the country will be able to develop this success, reports Look with reference to the USNI News portal.




Earlier, Commander-in-Chief of the Navy Viktor Chirkov stated that “in different parts of the World Ocean about 60 ships and submarines of the Navy carry out tasks fleet Russia. "

Erik Wertheim, independent analyst and author of the directory on the fleets of the world, noting the “surprising change” of the Russian fleet over the past few years, said that “such a breakthrough demanded enormous sacrifices from Russia” because “the more the fleet is used, the more experience it gains, the stronger costs of its maintenance increase ».

The publication notes that “the majority of Russian ships were built during the Cold War,” and now they are outdated and in need of repair. According to the author, the proof of this is the fact of launching missile attacks on Syria by new ships of the Caspian flotilla, and not by the old missile carriers in the Mediterranean Sea.

In addition, according to the author, over the past 20 years in Russia "the supply chain, logistics, and maintenance of equipment have atrophied."

Do not forget the publication to mention the difficulties in shipbuilding, which Russia began to experience after the break in relations with Ukraine.

But the success of the submarine fleet, the author is beyond doubt. “While the surface fleet was experiencing problems, the development of nuclear and conventional submarines did not weaken,” he writes, pointing to statements by the command of the US Navy, which periodically expresses concern about the activity of Russian submarines.

“Militarily, Russia is far from being transparent, therefore it is difficult to make assessments,” writes the publication. “Analysts do not rule out that Russia's policy on this issue is aimed not so much at intimidating potential opponents as at working with potential customers.”

However, "the question of how long the Russian fleet will show steady growth remains open," concludes USNI News.

      “While the surface fleet was experiencing problems, the development of nuclear and conventional submarines did not weaken”
      And not weaken! Russia's Pacific Fleet (Pacific Fleet) will receive the second strategic nuclear submarine of Project 955 (code Borey) Vladimir Monomakh in 2016, deputy commander of the Pacific Fleet Deputy Admiral Andrei Ryabukhin told reporters on Tuesday.

        Well, they have a similar situation with the fleet. Most ships were built during the Cold War and need to be repaired. With the Ohio submarines it’s not at all clear what will happen, there is the prospect that they will stand at the pier and will not sail anywhere.

        Airplanes old B-1, B-2, B-52. There is nothing to replace again.
        In general, this is understandable - after the collapse of the USSR, the Americans relaxed. It seems that there is no one to fight anymore, there are missiles (by the way, the missiles are also old, this is Yars new to us), no one is going to attack them, the masters of the world. But today it turned out that everything is old.

              And not only that. They always try to try on their mistakes and failures on us to try on !!! Do not wait. Once believed. There will definitely not be a second. They begin to rock the situation in the same way as always! "We are barbarians and cannot do anything." We have eyes! Someone who is good, and someone whose hands grow from where.

              I’ll agree, but there is a nuance - “Ohio” is unattainable for us. So whether they are rusty or not, and hammering - not much will seem. Although ... again, the nuance - in what state are their ballistic missiles? It’s also far from new.

It’s not even a needle in a haystack. And you need to understand that the hydrography of patrol areas (where they really will be patrolled by Ohio, in which case), Americans will know better than their sixth finger, i.e. any outsider will be calculated and killed very quickly.

              Not quite.

              The US Department of Defense under the Treaty on Measures to Further Reduce and Limit Strategic Offensive Arms (the new START) by February 5, 2018 will drastically reduce the number of nuclear weapons in submarines and strategic bombers.
              50 active ICBMs of Minuteman III will be removed from combat duty, which will reduce the number of deployed ICBMs to 400 units. At the same time, 50 free silo launchers are supposed to be kept in working condition. Together with four test launchers, the Pentagon will have 54 of them in reserve. As for the missiles themselves, they will be sent to the warehouse,
              The United States will also reduce the number of deployed ballistic missiles in submarines (SLBMs) ​​by 40 units - to 240. Of the 14 nuclear submarines (SSBNs) in the USA, 336 launchers for SLBM launches remain 280. At the same time, 56 launchers on SSBN will be refitted so that they cannot be used to launch ballistic missiles. As a result, the United States will have 12 SSBNs in operation with 20 SLBMs on each submarine.

              No need for containers :)) You see, a ship that is not a warship but carries weapons (we don’t take hand-held weapons for self-defense from pirates) is, by maritime law, pirated and subject to immediate exterminatus. So no one sticks any calibers anywhere. It is just not necessary.

                Even here I read went. Well, there are no such restrictions, especially in case of war. Here's what they say about piracy.
                Under international law, piracy is an international crime of unlawful seizure, robbery or sinking of merchant or civilian ships committed on the high seas. An attack during the war by ships, submarines and military aircraft on merchant ships of neutral countries is equivalent to piracy. Pirate ships, aircraft and their crews should not be protected by any state. Regardless of the flag, pirate ships can be hijacked by ships or aircraft that are in the service of a country and are authorized for this purpose.(C)

      Analysts, noting the "obsolescence" of the Russian fleet, are not able to assess the problems of logistics. Shooting from RTOs and missile boats from the shallow and friendly Caspian is one thing, where there is one night crossing from Makhachkala. The Mediterranean Sea is completely different, where missiles for reloading need to be dragged past Turkey or around. You can, of course, ask for “Dolgoruky” not in the training ground, but in Syria from the north. But, I suppose, everyone around will be very surprised.

        Only "Rostov-on-Don" can "work" from the Mediterranean Sea on the "shore", and if a person considers himself an expert, he should know about it. I don’t think that from a submarine you can "shoot" missiles through a torpedo tube as they say "as from the machine.

        Are you talking about peacetime or database maintenance? The world is still back and forth. And in the war ... After 45 minutes of the battle, you can no longer rush anywhere. There will be no one to recharge. Only boats that have not been tracked by the time the database began will remain operational. But they will also be harassed, like inveterate raids. In the Mediterranean, nothing shines for us yet. And this is a harsh reality that is well known to the management and sailors of the OS.

      The author, of course, talked, but it can be understood: THE WHOLE Western world does not know the pace of rearmament of the Armed Forces, which Russia demonstrates today, although our military budget is ten times smaller than the total military budgets of the collective West.
      They can only boast of the leader-destroyer Zumvolt "(this is the only ship designed in the 21st century) and then we must also see how it will withstand two pairs of Caliber - I have a big doubt that it will not drown (and the goal is good, big ), however, I think that shells stuffed with shimosa, fired from the guns of the cruisers Ikoma or Kasuga in 1906, will be pleased to penetrate into its interdeck space.

      Well, the author can agree in most positions. There are practically no new surface ships of the far sea zone and ocean class. Old ships are morally obsolete and physically. The speed of construction of the marine zone leaves much to be desired, and when ships of large displacement appear. Things are less or less better with the submarine fleet, although without cover, the surface fleet also remains vulnerable. Of course, the author is right about the logistics component, there are no naval bases abroad, there are no modern transport ships.

      Why? Oil $ 40, per barrel. The country's GDP is declining. The forecasts are not comforting.
      PPP of Russia:
      Russia's GDP for 2013 in US dollars = $ 3492 billion
      Russia's GDP for 2014 in US dollars = $ 3570 billion
      Russia's GDP for 2015 in US dollars = $ 3398 billion

      PPP is purchasing power parity. See the difference? I want to clarify my position right away. If there are people on the forum who want the prosperity of Russia and strengthen the strength of the armed forces, I’m in the forefront! But the article is honest. The successes in strengthening the armed forces are significant and timely. However, they a really heavy burden will lie on the shoulders of the country. This does not mean that we need to reduce efforts to improve the army. This means that we need reforms in the economy like air. To increase labor productivity, real fight against corruption, diversification of production, modernization of industry.

        Considering that the basis of our defense industry is state-owned, and that of Americans is private, then you need to consider the cost and not the cost. We have a margin of money to issue at cost.
        In the price of fuel, we also have about 3/4 of this tax, only we have oil falling and gasoline increasing.
        So it’s from taxes - therefore, swimming and flying is just as inexpensive.
        We bomb mainly with old stocks - disposal in factories would be more expensive.
        All that we are fighting (except for TU22 M, 95,160) - we also sell (with more modest characteristics), you must admit - the advertising is powerful and I am sure that the profile plants are inundated with orders, I cannot at all.
        Therefore, the main problem is to quickly increase the production of military equipment, but this, in turn, helps to increase GDP and improve unemployment rates.

        So the whole trick is that, if necessary, Russia will produce weapons, as during the Second World War - for rations. How much did 34 war times cost? Roughly speaking - a bag of loaves of bread. Money didn’t matter at all - it was necessary to survive. And do not wake up our genetic memory. This is the first. And the second one. The favorite pastime of our economy is to hide the real costs of defense. And the real cost of weapons and equipment.

    Longevity will be ensured by the purchase of our weapons from the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation! Already now, after such vivid demonstrations of power, the line for the purchase of weapons of the Russian Federation is growing ... the amount of contracts concluded is also growing !! Here you have longevity, gentlemen!

    However, "the question of how long the Russian fleet will show steady growth remains open," concludes USNI News.

    Well, they have a similar situation with the fleet. Most ships were built during the Cold War and need to be repaired. With the Ohio submarines it’s not at all clear what will happen, there is the prospect that they will stand at the pier and will not sail anywhere.

    Airplanes old B-1, B-2, B-52. There is nothing to replace again.
    In general, this is understandable - after the collapse of the USSR, the Americans relaxed. It seems that there is no one to fight anymore, there are missiles (by the way, the missiles are also old, this is Yars new to us), no one is going to attack them, the masters of the world. But today it turned out that everything is old.

    A rearmament program was adopted. Counting on it, they began to actively exploit the "Soviet legacy". But she, through the fault of Rogozin, was torn down and shifted to the right by about 2-3 years. Therefore, most likely in the next year or two, the intensity of campaigns will be reduced, or the repair of some ships will be delayed. Then everything will be restored, and with the repair of the "Orlan" and the commissioning of three 11356 it may even increase.
    The bottom has now been reached with the nuclear submarines, only further up. Now in our sea at the same time from zero to one missile carrier and one, sometimes two, torpedo nuclear submarines are simultaneously located. With the launch of new nuclear submarines and the repair of the old ones, in about five years, it may be at sea at the same time - two missile carriers, two torpedo tubes and one with cruise missiles.
    The Americans and NATO have at the same time about 15 “rusty” nuclear submarines at the same time, with the possibility of buildup.

      That's for sure. All terms for warships and airliners go hopelessly to the right. They promised this year two 11356, it is clear that only next. I’m silent about the unfortunate Gren. We have two Varshavyanka, two Buyans this year, well, God forbid, Gorshkov will finally be accepted, and that's all from the fighting. Well, the intelligence officer "Ivanov", the researcher "Yantar", the transport "Kovalev". Here you have all the replenishment, in fact for this year. I don’t know what claims to the article are there ... Rogozin only tweet master

    DO NOT wait and do not expect !!!

    What they are right about is that in the USSR and Russia the main force of the fleet was submarines. And the fact that today not everything that relates to the armed forces is accessible information. For example, not much is heard about the Project 971 boats, which were the backbone of the Navy. And they are quite young and perfect, and I don’t think that they wrote them down ... And once someone said that while Russia has at least 2-3 such boats, any movement of enemy ships in the ocean is akin to moving around a mine to the field ...

    The Germans will never decipher the phrase "We’ll drink everything, but we won’t abandon the fleet!" Therefore, how much whom and what we have enough for them is better not to guess and not know. There will be only one end, but as before, "we will take prisoners at the Brandenburg Gate."

    At the same time, the publication notes that “most Russian ships were built during the Cold War”

    and what about the new fleet of the navy? The bulk of the American Navy was built before the 90s and in the early 90s.

    “While the surface fleet was experiencing problems, the development of nuclear and conventional submarines did not weaken”

    the problem of the surface fleet is that the production of engines and the backbone of the shipyards where the surface fleet was built for the USSR turned out to be “independent countries” after the collapse of the USSR outside Russia. There were no such problems with the submarine fleet.

    And notice how their rhetoric changes over time:
    - in the beginning there was their “hee-hee” about just 300-400 km from the “Caliber”. Well, yes, the export option ...
    - after a salvo from different points they wondered

    - And now they are trying to find out how long the country can develop success?
    The answers, in due time, were given by German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck. Read, gentlemen ignoramuses, read .... hi

    The basis of the combat structure of the Russian surface fleet is ships with gas turbine power plants of Ukrainian production. Import substitution in this area has become a guarantee of national security - without repair of turbines, the fleet will not be able to carry out its tasks in an increasingly conflicting world.
    The Novik industrial group has mastered the repair of ship gas turbine engines

    I read komenty and was horrified, a few sensible ones and all the rest was cheers, we will throw our caps. Our fleet, alas, is in a deplorable state. Local successes, unfortunately, are not indicators. The rearmament program has been thwarted clean and what is now standing at the shipyards without power plants will become obsolete by the time it is put into operation. And in general, the whole situation reminds me of the 40th year with the slogans of the Red Army all stronger and so on.

      Yes, especially with surface ships of rank 1-2 there are problems, but in general it’s not so direct everything is sad. In the ranks of the three newest Boreas with gifts (this is already a serious bid, finding these ships is not easy) there are 7-8 submarines of 971 project — these are very good and powerful ships. There is also a couple of 671rtmk, "loaves" 949A, a lonely and beautiful "ash" at last. Again, the new "calibrated" corvettes and Warsaw should also be reckoned with. In general, there is something to bite, the main thing is to increase the pace.

    The activity of the army and navy will be quite long; ordinary people will pay for it. Population of Russia. Many of them didn’t see the sea either (and they won’t see ... unless they get a ticket to the Crimea from the plant). Happiness and exclamations cheers-depressing. All examples of modern weapons in Russia are either piece copies or paper projects. You can call the analyst "stupid" as much as you like, but you can’t argue with the facts
