Latest news is that they will dock in Tartus Syria on January 6.

Russian warships heading for Cyprus, Tunisia and Syria

A flotilla of Russian warships will undertake a tour of the Mediterranean in January, taking in Limassol in Cyprus, Tartus in Syria and Sfax in Tunisia. The group will dock at Tartus, a Russian naval base, around January 6. The heavy aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov will be the only ship out of the group not to dock at any international ports, including the Syrian one, a source in Russia’s Defense Ministry told Itar-tass news agency.


So much for ``spring 2012``...

Lmao. I just got done reading a about the russians fighting a nuclear sub fire as I type this. Lmao they can't even keep their home ships up and running. how do they expect Syria to do it? You can't go 2 days without seeing some major russian tech failure.

Theres not going to be a ww3. Also I'm really starting to get the feeling that the reason most of the people on this site are so scared of this crap is because they lack the will to fight. Drop some balls. have some pride for your country and support what they do. maybe then we wouldn't be having half these problems. but nah. you guys are just scared that one day your Sony network could go down again =/

Drop balls get behind your country or live like the cowards you are. You talk # about America but did you really want to live in a russian controlled world? or worse yet china? but none of this matters to you. The only thing you belive in is staying hidden behind your computers talking crap that should have you arrested and put in front of a firing squad. but wait.. we don't do that. oh yea.. you live in America. Leave if you hate the country so much.

Hmm dude... the sub was docked. They were fixing some of the stuff in there, sometimes there's accidents. The submarine didn't just caught fire like that by itself.

Yeah right. Let's support whatever the thugs in control do...
Blind patriotism, the stupidest thing ever.

Look. Our country might not always do the correct thing. But i'd prefer to live under American rule then some country that everything belongs to the government. Where I can be pulled out of my house and imprisoned for speaking against them. Its bs. Americas not perfect but we're not the evil warmongering empire that you people are make it out to be. If America was so blood thirsty their be no human race anymore because the nukes would of already flown. I say we do the best we can.


and I know it was at dock but its one of countless examples of Russian tech failures in recent memory. look them up.

I'm not sure what World War 2 ship losses and a British ship sunk in the 70's have to do with anything. I think you're blissfully unaware of the technological advancements and firepower on board modern naval war ships.

Yes, the US Navy is very near untouchable.

I will refer you to Millennium Challenge 2002where the US navy ran an war games simulation where one side only had speedboats, pigeons, etc. Guess which side one against the US navy? Yes the less technological advanced side. So yes the US navy is still touchable no matter how much technology.

in the 80's not 70's.and US navy untouchable?




In February 1991 during the Gulf War the battleship USS Missouri (BB-63), escorted by HMS Gloucester (D96) (carrying Sea Dart) and USS Jarrett (FFG-33) (equipped with Phalanx CIWS), was engaged by an Iraqi Silkworm missile (also known as a Seersucker). The Silkworm missile was intercepted and destroyed by a Sea Dart fired from Gloucester. During the same engagement, the Jarrett's Phalanx 20 mm CIWS was placed in autoengagement mode and targeted chaff launched by the Missouri rather than the incoming missile.[5][6] This engagement was the first validated, successful engagement of a missile by a missile during combat at sea, though the engagement was tail-end after the Silkworm had flown past the Gloucester.[5]

If this is how untouchable we are and our aegis system is ,I am speechless.

Yes, a scripted exercise in which both Red and Blue teams followed predetermined plans of action, thus wasting approximately 250 million dollars of tax payers money. Lieutenant General Van Riper resigned due to this. During my time in the 31st MEU I had a few Navy buddies who held Top Secret clearances aboard our carrier. That's as much as I will say, but you should have more confidence in our Navy's capabilities.

Once again, major advancements have been made even within the last decade, let alone 20+ years ago.

Technology has been progressing at an incredible speed.

Roger that. I'm sure you know more than myself about military attack/defense capabilities.


I'll leave you with this.

And that's only what the public can know.
Carry on.

So?

It's not being referred to the "holy grail" of missile defense for nothing.

I'm not "acting smug," I'm letting you know there's a lot more going on behind the scenes than you can find from your armchair.


I didn't say the US Navy is completely untouchable, of course it's possible to take down a couple battle ships, MAYBE, but good luck taking out one of our carriers. They're more protected than our own president in more ways than one.

Congrats on having family in the military. What point are you trying to make? I didn't come here to argue, I came here to enlighten you. Ignore it if you want, doesn't make a difference to me.

I'll let you have the last word. I'm generous like that.

so is there a lot of things happening behind the scenes in Russia whether in science,military or politics. As for aircraft carrier being unsinkable,I wouldn't even say anything about it.Kirov's,Oscar sub and Kuznetsov carrier long range missile armament is precisely meant for sinking CBG at a very long distance.And Russians have their own classified stuff.

as for enlightenment enlighten yourself with electromagnetic phenomena or electric universe theory.It will help you understand the functionality of various classified systems with ease.

Russia is friendly to Syria, Iran, and anyone else it can sell arms to. The US sells arm to its allies. Russia doesn't have to be allied at all to sell you all it can. There are real trade deals going back years between Syria and Russia...they haven't changed with the unrest in Syria. It's ugly but true, Russia really doesn't care about what's going on in Syria. Russia has several faces it uses on the world stage of politics....just like a lot of other countries we all know....and at the same time it's saying one thing it's doing another.

Let them float their one carrier...It's not going to change any of the real dynamics we see in the Middle East.
That pot in the desert is about to boil over all by it's self...I just hope we don't get burned.

Lieutenant General Van Riper resigned due to this


He resigned because after the USA side lost they changed it to scripted so that they would not lose. That was the reason for his resignation.



At this point, the exercise was suspended, Blue's ships were "re-floated", and the rules of engagement were changed


It is at that point that he resigned. He did not resign because the whole thing was scripted. The first battle was freeplay, nothing scripted.

This is a big move for he ruskies, full reapect from me they have. Countries need to stand up to tyranny and its the bankers running the show remember people. Not the politicians, although they are complicit.

"Finance is the gun, politics is just knowing when to pull the trigger" which is what the bankers have done in the us.

Another good thread vitch. I think we are begining to see the players more clearly now.

Not a doubt in my mind ww3 or the skirmish that leads to it will start in asia minor. Unless Korea, happens first then asia minor or vice versa.

Ya its getting closer i can focus on it now..

S&f

Thanks for the news.

Russia to send warships to Syria in 2012: report

Russia will send a flotilla of warships led by its only aircraft carrier to its naval base in Syria for a port call next year amid tensions with the West over the Syrian crisis, a report said Monday.

The ships, headed by the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, will dock at the little-utilised Russian base in the Syrian port of Tartus in spring 2012, the Izvestia daily said, quoting the Russian navy.

The Tartus base, a strategic asset for Moscow dating back to Soviet times, is rarely used by Russian vessels and currently no Russian ship is based there although civilian and military personnel are present.


NATO, are you understanding this? BACK OFF OR WORLD WAR 3. Or eh, maybe this will push NATO for an attack BEFORE Russia ever makes it to Tartus...
