Russia is not going to risk wwIII over Assad or for Ahmadenijad for that matter.


That doesn't mean that they can't make it very painful. A lot above the news of night vision goggles that Iraq brought after the war had started...

Syria anti aircraft defense is still top of range Russian tech (even after the last issues it had) if most of the Russian setup continues to prove incapable of providing any meaningful defense against NATO arsenal. Russia should not only become worried about its capability but ejected from much of the armament markets (the few that it still has left)...

To save repeating myself. Yes the Morse Code and all the transmissions will be routinely collected. Remember that it is not just the US that will be collecting and sharing the information?

www.abovetopsecret.com...

No signals intelligence collection agency is going to pass over monitoring ALL the routine radio transmissions from such a deployment and especially if they transmit and set up in the clear. Think outside the box? Yes it is back to basics but every transmission, however routine, adds to the larger intelligence collection picture and procedures. Ask yourself why the Russians still use Morse Code? You seriously think that all transmissions used by an adversary, or potential adversary is not routinely monitored by the other side?

The Russian Air Force strategic new-build Tu-95MS Bear H still carry and utilise Morse. Note the Morse Key in the corner of the radio operators position? Do you not think that when they utilise their Morse fit that the signals and codes are copied and that radio direction finding is utilised?

Russian Navy aircraft also still use Morse on a near daily basis. Here is one I picked up this morning using HF Morse. 52232 is a Russian Navy Antonov 26 Curl.

Russian Naval aircraft 52232 active on 8816 Kilohertz

Even Russian radio enthusiasts openly listen and log the information. Do you not think that signals intelligence collection agencies interested also routinely monitor these open broadcasts?

52232 is a Russian Navy An-26 Curl. Coded 25 Blue. Note the High Frequency antenna going from the spine to the tail fin?

Some recording examples of the Russian Navy aircraft Morse from February 2012 for anyone interested and that can copy the Morse.

Absolutely no different from Russian Signals intelligence collection sites routinely monitoring US and NATO transmissions to exploit the open and clear channel communications. For example B-1 and B-52s routinely transit the Atlantic and pass in the clear on High Frequency over flight pass over points and co-ordinates for where they will be refuelling, etc.

RT and Debka? They're both horrible sources.


I agree the spin that they put on them only feeds some of the conspiracy non-sense posts that are seen when discussing these Russian Navy deployments. It was exactly the same when the Russian Aircraft Carrier Task Force deployed on exercise to Syria earlier this year. I feel sorry for the Russian Navy media people that have counter all the gibberish that surrounds the deployments. Rus Navy website is a good source of information on the subject and especially for the make up of the various fleet vessels deployed.


Russian Navy Command explained warships sending to the Mediterranean Sea.

rusnavy.com...

The warships group from Russia's Northern, Baltic and Black Sea Fleets, sending to the Mediterranean Sea, will hold an exercise there, Interfax reports referring to the Russian Naval General Staff. In particular, the warships group will drill company sailing under the sole command, antiaircraft and anti-submarine defence, anti-piracy protection of civil and commercial vessels.

As part of manoeuvres every warship will carry Marine Corps personnel, the General Staff spokesman said. According to him, the main goal of the campaign is not a call in the Syrian port Tartus. As expected, only support and auxiliary ships will visit Tartus for replenishment. As to warships, they will be sent there if the technological necessity appears.

The flagman of the group is Admiral Chabanenko, a Project 11551 large antisubmarine warfare ship of the Northern Fleet. All the warships will join forces a week later in the the Mediterranean Sea. Recall, reportedly by Central Navy Portal, Admiral Chabanenko and three Russian amphibious assault ships left NF Main Base Severomorsk on July 10. Three amphibious assault ships transport Marine Corps submits on-board. Baltic Fleet guard frigat Yaroslav Mudry and auxiliary ships, based in Baltiysk, will join Admiral Chabanenko later.

Later the unnamed source from the Russian Ministry of Defense told that "the program of the voyage includes a call in the Syrian port of Tartus". According to Interfax, the source insisted that the deployment was not linked to the escalation of the situation in Syria. "In Tartus the ships are going to top up on supplies of fuel, water and foodstuffs," the source said, adding that their deployment in the Mediterranean would last until the end of September.

Also the Russian Navy representative informed RIA Novosti that the warships group from Russia's Northern, Baltic and Black Sea Fleets was preparing for drilling in the Atlantic ocean as well as in the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea.

As reported, the group will include: - Admiral Chabanenko, a Project 11551 large antisubmarine warfare ship; Alexander Otrakovsky, Georgy Pobedonosets and Kondopoga, Project 775 large landing ships; support ships - Nikolay Chiker, a Project Ð-5757 rescue tug, and Sergey Osipov, a Project 1559 petrol carrier, from the Northern Fleet; - Yaroslav Mudry, a Project 11540 guardian frigate and Lene, a Project 577 petrol carrier from the Baltic Fleet; - Smetlivy, a Project 01090 destroyer; Caesar Kunikov, a Project 775 large landing ship and Nikolai Filchenkov, a Project 1171 large landing ship, from the Black Sea Fleet.

Morse Code position report from one of the Auxiliary vessels that came out of the Bosphorus (Black Sea).

Probably one of the Tugs that are in support of the Black Sea Fleet Destroyer and two Amphibious Landing Ships?

Russian Warships Will Not Enter Syria Port – Navy Chief


MOSCOW, July 26 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s navy chief said on Thursday that a flotilla of Russian warships off the coast of Syria would not dock at a port leased by Moscow in the violence-stricken Middle East country. “The joint fleet flotilla will not enter the port of Tartus,” Vice Admiral Viktor Chirkov told journalists. “It is carrying out military drills in the Mediterranean.” The flotilla is comprised of 10 warships, plus escort vessels. Chirkov also said the flotilla was carrying marines.

The Black Sea Fleet elements of the Russian Navy Task Force are returning to home port.


Russian naval unit to continue mission in Mediterranean without Black Sea Fleet ships Russian Black Sea Fleet ships have completed their mission in the Mediterranean as part of an inter-fleet unit including also ships from the Northern and Baltic Fleets, and the unit will continue its mission in the area under a joint command, the Navy Main Staff told Interfax-AVN on Saturday.

"The crews of the destroyer Smetlivy and the landing ships Tsezar Kunikov and Nikolai Filchenkov have completed their combat mission in the Mediterranean," a Navy Main Staff spokesperson said. The Navy Main Staff had told Interfax-AVN earlier on Saturday that the Tsezar Kunikov and the Nikolai Filchenkov had returned to their base at the Sevastopol port on Saturday morning, and the Smetlivy was in the Sea of Marmara and was expected to reach Sevastopol on Sunday to take part in the final phase of a naval parade marking Navy Day.

The inter-fleet unit will continue performing its duties in the Mediterranean until it receives a special instruction from the Main Staff. "It was planned that the units of ships from the three fleets will meet in the Mediterranean at the end of July to jointly perform emerging tasks. However, this task is no longer relevant," he said.

At least two vessels of the Baltic Fleet Task Force element have left the Mediterranean.

This all seems to be a major game to some. Russia will turn on Syria if Al-Queeda is going to run it or the muslim brother hood. However this whole region is on fire at any moment. Major religions, sectarian hatred. It all fits the plan to initiate One World Govt.. All you need to do is bring certain countries down, and elevate others. Pay close attention to Israel because what they do will be a totaly different ball game, and will most likely go against any George Soros plan. However all should consider what us here at home will do, Keep in mind the Muslim brotherhood is in our Govt. many claim. As Yoda says in the clone wars movie (animated): slow down for the war is long, and only by surviving it will you prevail.
