Shoigu: by the end of the year the Russian Navy will receive 12 new ships

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu inspected the Zvezda defense plant in the city of Bolshoi Kamen, Primorsky Territory, where he checked the progress of work on the repair and modernization of nuclear submarines as part of the state defense order.

The head of the defense department called for using all the production capacities of the only enterprise in the Far East for the re-equipment and modernization of nuclear submarines. After inspecting the plant, Sergei Shoigu held a meeting with the command of the Russian Navy.

The minister said that by the end of this year, 12 more warships will be commissioned, including the frigate Admiral Golovko, the strategic missile submarine Emperor Alexander II and the advanced Project 885M nuclear submarine Krasnoyarsk. Shoigu recalled that over the past decade, the Russian Navy has been replenished with more than 50 ships of various classes. He emphasized the importance of developing the fleet to ensure Russia's security.

Improving the Navy allows us to defend the geopolitical interests of the country and respond appropriately to new challenges and threats. The Russian Navy protects national interests, maintains the safety of sea routes, and conducts operations in different areas of the world

– the Minister of Defense said at the meeting.

According to Sergei Shoigu, work is currently underway on projects of robotic systems and unmanned underwater vehicles, as well as multi-purpose nuclear submarines.

    I wonder how these ships will defend themselves if the air defense cannot shoot down 10 missiles in a layered defense.

      a submarine is very difficult to detect, it is effectively camouflaged by ocean waters, but the time of surface ships is gone, they are an auxiliary force near their shores with local air defense at the level of a motorized rifle company, surface ships fight under the umbrella of coastal air defense, and coastal aviation, or so far out in the ocean from the enemy shore, which they are also opposed by surface ships with limited air defense and missile defense..... however, the parquet admirals keep almost the entire surface fleet in sea puddles, shot right through by the enemy, where the enemy will destroy it all together with the crews in 15 minutes (Baltika Black Caspian and The Sea of ​​Japan, apparently to destroy, how treacherously and deliberately did the Rozhestvensky destroy the entire fleet in Tsushima?) .... and they don’t want to bring all the surface ships of the second rank and the Varangians to the oceans, where they are very necessary for the surface and air defense bases of the submarines ... Why? I don’t know, maybe the fact is that sailors, midshipmen and officers in Kamchatka and the north get a year or two, but this doesn’t give anything to the admiral, it’s best for him to serve until he’s 90 years old, while parquet admirals are more important than their own comfort, comfort and freezing in the north and Kamchatka doesn’t want to, can you betray your homeland for the sake of your ryakhi, if there are admiral’s stars? or do they deliberately want to destroy the essence and basis of the fleet, that is, leaving the nuclear submarines without proper protection to please the enemy? I don’t know, I don’t understand.. why did they do this?

    The construction of ships is the merit of industry, and the competence of the Ministry of Defense is what weapons the ships are armed with and whether they meet the requirements of modern warfare.

      Only very old ships in the Russian Federation do not meet the conditions of the recent war, the legacy of Gorshkov, who fell into pride and madness in his old age. It is obvious that both 1135 are excellent ships, but in the past, due to their technical condition, they were probably not combat-ready, And the pair 956 is incomprehensible in terms of tasks and technical condition, There is also an aircraft carrier, in general it could be useful, but not in our fleet, because it has no escort cover and no tasks; it would be useful to China and India. The cruisers are completely outdated, their original idea was flawed, too big, one drowned because it was not able to solve the assigned tasks, the Varyag is a copy of Moscow due to old age, age and low combat effectiveness, it will soon be scrapped. Ustinov has undergone modernization and has become a reinforced coastal destroyer for the Barents Sea, it should serve for several more years, it will be useful, although its next major overhaul probably does not make sense due to its age. Well, Nakhimov, a battleship with the tasks of a coastal frigate-destroyer, my idea to restore it and Lazarev turned out to be a mistake, initially they thought that repairing it would cost only 50 billion, but it turned out to be 200 billion, despite the fact that its construction cost in the USSR would have been in modern prices approximately 800-900 billion..... which proves the absurdity of building battleships in modern times, so they decided to scrap Peter, the rest of the ships of the navy are suitable for solving the tasks assigned to them, if, of course, they are in combat-ready condition and undergo regular modernization
