The goals of the American destroyer in the Black Sea became known

The command of the Sixth Fleet of the US Navy called the reason for the entry into the Black Sea of ​​a guided missile destroyer destroyer - missile defense (URO-PRO) Porter.




The fleet’s website published a statement by the commander, Vice Admiral Lisa Franchetti, in which she notes that the entry of an American warship into the Black Sea is a planned operation, which should demonstrate Washington’s commitment to freedom of navigation to its NATO allies and partners in the Black Sea.

According to the admiral, this is the seventh call of the US Navy ships to the Black Sea this year. The last time the “Porter” was noted on this side of the Bosphorus in August this year.

Recall that such “visits”, as a rule, take place under the close supervision of the ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. This time, support for the American destroyer Porter was provided by the frigate Admiral Essen and the small missile ships Vyshny Volochek and Orekhovo-Zuevo.

The destroyer Porter belongs to the fourth generation of US destroyers Arly Burke, assigned to the 2nd squadron of the US Atlantic Fleet. The destroyer is commanded by a woman - captain Andria Slough.

During operation, the American destroyer became famous for its collision with a Japanese oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz in 2012 and a missile strike on the Syrian air base at Al-Shairat, which was launched in 2017.

      A lion surrounded by mosquitoes .... or rather, Mosquitoes of the Russian Navy! For reference - there are more cruise missiles on one PORTER than on all fleets of the Russian Federation!

        Old shabby tattered cat. wassat It’s not necessary anymore, in a pinch, “Moscow” will add from the pier, for each run a lot of honor lol

        fellow 64 ancient, poorly flying “Tomahawk” (here’s a reference specially for you, “ideologically close” to you:

        https://www.svoboda.org/a/28415628.html

        Read at your leisure how he shot in Syria), the rest of the installations are occupied by anti-aircraft missiles (how do they work - ask Saudi Arabia). "Caliber" in the fleet 96, there are also "Granites" and "Volcanoes". Your directory is out of date. negative

        Are you so stupid (I wanted to use another word, but the admin will cut it) or pretend to be? Of course, he has a lot of missiles (Max up to 100pcs when fully loaded), but this is definitely no more than on "all Russian fleets." This is, firstly, and secondly, in the Black Sea, in the situation in which he is there, it is unlikely that even one of them will even have time to leave the launch mine ... This is a purely front door to the water area, just for the sake of demonstrating "presence "for allies. Unlike you, the crew of this destroyer understands very well that after the transition of Crimea to the jurisdiction of the Russian Federation, the Black Sea is already shot through even by coastal anti-ship systems, not to mention the accompanying missile ships and aircraft on duty on duty. By the way, there are already with "daggers" ...

        ... targets of the American destroyer in the Black Sea.

        - to be an excellent target for training crews of anti-ship systems of the Russian Federation. This is the most correct wording.
        For Americans there is a cover almost immediately, as the launcher cover is shifted. This is a really powerful and modern ship, but not for this water area. There it is nothing more than a target ... And everyone understands this ... except you. laughing

            In humans, the idea of ​​the world is taken from comics. Though a little closer to reality.

      That's right .... Standing at its base, the Court hit on about. Crete, such a destroyer can easily destroy any target in the Black Sea and on its coast ... while remaining completely safe.

        As well as going to the bottom right at the pier with a hole from the rocket in the board.

        While remaining completely safe

        What is this amateurish statement based on?no On the "blind faith" in the omnipotence of their "masters"? sad By the way, why did he push himself into the Black Sea? Go fishing?

        What nonsense are you talking about? Entering the Black Sea, this destroyer itself is the number one target, and with the slightest attempt to attack anyone, it will be guaranteed to be destroyed very quickly, even the AUG will not last very long at the start of hostilities, what can we say about some single destroyer . You either greatly underestimate the capabilities of the modern Russian army, or purposefully give out your wish for the real, but both of them look very ridiculous and stupid.

        Like a small missile ship of the Russian Federation, this destroyer can be destroyed without leaving the Black Sea ... But, unlike the Black Sea, in Crete, he will have time to launch at least several missiles ... In the Black Sea, it is unlikely ...

    Yes, they all have time, and ours, and they. And then everyone will drown.
    Another thing is that garbage is all this. The fact that they freely roll together means that no one thinks and shoots.
    Our kids are optimized for shooting from under the coast, from bays, IMHO.
    They - under cover of a mass of missiles .. ran, wailed, fled ... he, it seems, has a speed of almost 2 times more and resistance to the wave ...

    Why all this scribble? The US warship is, like all NATO ships that entered the sea before it, in neutral waters, and there is absolutely nothing to conduct operations to track it, from a military point of view! You can observe today with the help of satellites, but then, damn it, the factor of the genre is lost! Americans, or as they are amiably called in Russia, Americans in the Black Sea! What a nightmare! Ah rascals, why have you come ?! And who told the Russians that it was their own, like the inland sea ?! Russia has its own maritime border there, and then not its competence! Under international maritime law, any ship, including military, has every right to be in the Black Sea for 21 days, respectively, without violating anyone's territorial waters! So the MRC "Vyshny Volochyok" (and the name is so frightening!) Do not waste your diesel fuel in vain and snoop behind an American ship, pretending to just float by!
