    I don't think that I will have to rest for a long time ... And the technique, I realized, is in perfect order, if even "to the heap" at the end of the hike, and they connected to the exercises ...

      I think people should rest after 9 months of the trip, stay with their relatives and friends. It’s not a technique that is fighting.

      Well, let's say not hungry, but respectfully, with understanding. By the way, if the sailor does not want to see the pig, then ... There everything is in order. Yes, I myself would be closer to the piglet. Designers and worked.

    And who instead of him off the coast of Syria?
    Among the ships of the 1st rank with comparable characteristics of anti-ship and anti-aircraft weapons? "Moscow" undergoing modernization, "Marshal Ustinov" undergoing trials after modernization. Is it possible that "Peter the Great" slipped so quietly into the Mediterranean puddle that no one noticed? belay

      Everything is quiet. "All the terrorists are captured. And Magomayev sings in KVN."
      "Do you think fools sit in the Central Committee? We'll fly at night" Translation:
      VKS grouping also returned to normal. The Navy ... also returned to normal.
      Let's think for us the General Staff. Has there been a recent claim to his work?

      The cruiser Moskva is docked in Sevastopol. I don't think you can upgrade in the dock ..

    And I do not think so!
    But since the 14th year, they talk about the repair and modernization of "Moscow" at the Severodvinsk "Zvezdochka" and it has been postponed. The last time this was mentioned was at the beginning of the year, when the Varyag replaced the Moscow off the coast of Syria.
    So my suspicions that this event will take place sooner or later are not groundless!

      Clear . that "Moscow" will go to the north for modernization .. But who will take its place ... Ustinov? It looks like this.

    I see 2 options. First, they will postpone the modernization of the "Moscow" for a year or two, taking into account that the cruiser is quite effective with the present composition of weapons. The second is when modernization follows renovation. Apparently, there are some snags in the signing of the modernization contract. In this case, off the coast of Syria, Peter the Great is expected this year, apparently, together with Kuznetsov, and then - Marshal Ustinov, the latter on a permanent basis will replace Moscow. Such conclusions follow from the information on the Internet. Nobody will tell us what decisions have been made in reality. We will see for ourselves over time.

    More interesting is another, on returning from a campaign:
    The flagship of the Pacific Fleet, the Varyag guards missile cruiser (GRK) performed missile firing ground target complex captain of the second rank, captain of the second rank, said the head of the information support department of the BBO press service for TF at the Kamchatka training ground, Kura Vladimir Matveev.
    "In accordance with the combat training plan of the fleet, the crew of the Varyag missile fired from the Sea of ​​Okhotsk with a cruise missile at a coastal target located at the Kura range (Kamchatka Peninsula)," Matveev said.

    A volcano on a ground target !? Very interesting, what is the range of destruction of a ground target?
    In principle, there used to be an opinion that Vulcan can be flashed about a ground target,
    but how accurate and far this could be done, there was no information. It turns out
    that etc. 1164 can work along the coast, and not only projects with "Calibers".

      They can work along the deregu and air defense systems, only radio-contrast targets are needed, and if my memory serves me, in this case, the CD has a flight only along a "high" trajectory, and the range is the same.

    The main thing is how in the USSR, to always be always ready, when we were on the White Sea when we received an order for our old patrol in Severodvinsk, the 154 brigade of the OVRA went out instantly to accompany the "Shark" for shooting or for their artillery firing at barrels, but as at night charged the "Shark" it was something ... you will remember this all your life, which CRANE, what cars with missiles, how many GBShniks were trampling on the pier ... and they chose the weather so that it was not visible from the satellites ..
