Turkey keeping track of Russian fleet movements:

Turkish Navy MELTEM II CASA CN-235 Maritime Patrol Aircraft Tracked Russian Navy Corvette

Navy Recognition

Quote
18 February 2016

According to Russian media, a Turkish Navy Meltem II CASA CN-235 Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) tracked two Russian Navy Black Sea fleet surface vessels during their transit to the Mediterranean Sea. The two vessels are likely Project 21631 small missile ship (Buyan-M class corvette) Zelyony Dol and the ocean-going mine-sweeper Kovrovets. We reported about their deployment last week.

Thales was the prime contractor for the Meltem II programme, which called for the delivery of six maritime patrol aircraft for the Turkish Navy and three maritime surveillance aircraft for the Turkish Coast Guard. The aircraft are based on modified CASA CN-235 platforms.

Btw, isn't the CN-235 is basically a shorter C-295 with the engines from the Black Hawk helicopter.

Not quite: The C-295, which came after, is a longer version of the C-235. And it does not have the same engines as the Blackhawk: C-235 -> GE CT7-9C3's; BH -> GE T700-GE701C.

And for the Turks to be "tracking" Russian ships that basically are around Turkey's coasts is not only "not" unusual, but rather normal. Where I them, I would do the same regardless of the tense diplomatic situation between the two countries.

Russia's Kirov-Class Battlecruiser Fleet Is Expanding And Becoming Far More Capable
Tyler Rogoway
Yesterday 8:58pmFiled to: Ships

(...SNIPPED)

Only one of the four Kirov class ships ever built has remained in active duty since its commissioning in the mid-1990s, that ship being the Pyotr Veliky, the flagship of the Northern Fleet.

As part of the increasingly belligerent recent Kremlin plan to revitalize the rusting Russian Navy, ship builders have been hard at work bringing a second Kirov class battlecruiser, the Admiral Nakhimov, back to life after it had been rusting away in storage for a decade and a half. She’s getting overhauled and is set to be returned to the fleet in 2019.

At that time, the Admiral Nakhimov will take the place of the Pyotr Veliky, which is slated to enter dry dock for three years where it too will get a deep overhaul and refitting just like its sister ship.

The new hypersonic SSM Zircon is to be fitted on their Kirov class battle cruisers.The USN will need to counter this potent weapon either with a missile or laser.

http://blogs.plymouth.ac.uk/dcss/2016/02/28/russias-kirov-class-battle-cruisers-are-getting-3m22-zircon-hypersonic-anti-ship-missiles/

The Russian Navy will upgrade its two nuclear-powered Project 11442 Kirov-class battle cruisers, Pyotr Velikyi and its sister ship Admiral Nakhimov, with a new under development hypersonic anti-ship cruise missile.
 
The new Mach 5-capable ramjet engine equipped 3M22 missile of the 3K22 Zircon missile system would replace the ship’s existing 390-mile range P-700 Granit supersonic anti-ship missile.
 
According to a Russian defense industry source, “The battle cruiser Pyotr Veliky will start repairs in the third or fourth quarter of 2019. Repairs and upgrade are due for completion in late 2022, the ship to be equipped with Zircon hypersonic anti-ship missiles”.

Russia will soon be starting on a new diesel sub called Kalina.Where will Putin find the money for his defense buildup ?

http://www.nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/revealed-russias-lethal-new-kalina-class-submarine-15544

Russia is set to start construction of its new Kalina-class diesel-electric submarine after the last two Lada-class vessels are completed. The Project 677 Lada-class—which Moscow is terminating after three units are completed—has proven to be a disappointment.
 
“The two Lada-class Project 677 submarines will be delivered as scheduled — in 2018 and 2019,” a spokesman for United Shipbuilding Corporation told RIA Novosti. “Then the construction of the new non-nuclear Kalina-class submarines will be launched.”

Not a nice development for NATO, NORAD:

Russia to Arm Attack Submarines With New Long-Range Missile
The Russian Navy will arm a number of attack submarines with the Kalibr missile.




Russia plans to upgrade its fleet of Project 971 Akula-class multi-role nuclear-powered attack submarines (SSN) with 3M-54 Kalibr (NATO designation: SS-N-27A “Sizzler”) missiles, the head of the Russian Navy Training Department, Rear Admiral Viktor Kochemazov, told a Russian radio station in Moscow this week, Sputnik News reports.

“The Kalibr cruise missile is a highly efficient weapon as was amply proved by the recent launches from the Rostov-on-Don submarine. Kalibr missiles will be installed on the modernized Project 971 submarines,” Kochemazov said. The missile is “facing bright vistas in terms of further development,” he added.

The Rostov-on-Don submarine the admiral is referring to is an improved Project 636.3 Kilo-class (aka Vashavyanka-class) diesel-electric submarine purportedly one of the quietest diesel subs in the world. It is primarily designed for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface-ship warfare (ASuW).

On December 9 2015, the Rostov-on-Don launched four 3M-54 Kalibr cruise missiles from an underwater position in the Mediterranean against targets around near Raqqah in Syria. It is likely that the admiral was referencing the December 9 cruise missile strikes in his remarks.

The 3M-54 Kalibr is a supersonic cruise missile available in land-attack, anti-ship, and anti-submarine variants. It is specifically designed to evade active air defenses and electronic countermeasures.

The Russian Navy currently operates five Akula-class SSN’s in the Pacific and six in the Northern Fleet. These include Akula I, improved Akula, and Akula II variants of the class. How many of the vessels are in fact operational is uncertain. Some analysts estimate operational readiness of the Akula-class boats at somewhere between 40 to 70 percent...

Got to be careful here, Mark.

Putin is of the old KGB school of disinformation.

Russia has been announcing all sorts of "we are going to ..." things lately. They are in the future, at an uncertain time, and many for unprovable/un-disprovable actions (such as we will put missile "x" on submarines). The real issue that intelligence services will be addressing before we get all worked up is "Can Russia actually fund these plans and put them in effect?"

Russia Bolsters Its Submarine Fleet, and Tensions With U.S. Rise

Russian attack submarines, the most in two decades, are prowling the coastlines of Scandinavia and Scotland, the Mediterranean Sea and the North Atlantic in what Western military officials say is a significantly increased presence aimed at contesting American and NATO undersea dominance.

Adm. Mark Ferguson, the United States Navy’s top commander in Europe, said last fall that the intensity of Russian submarine patrols had risen by almost 50 percent over the past year, citing public remarks by the Russian Navy chief, Adm. Viktor Chirkov. Analysts say that tempo has not changed since then.

The patrols are the most visible sign of a renewed interest in submarine warfare by President Vladimir V. Putin, whose government has spent billions of dollars for new classes of diesel and nuclear-powered attack submarines that are quieter, better armed and operated by more proficient crews than in the past...

“We’re back to the great powers competition,” Adm. John M. Richardson, the chief of naval operations, said in an interview...

In Naples, at the headquarters of the United States Navy’s European operations, including the Sixth Fleet, commanders for the first time in decades are having to closely monitor Russian submarine movements through the maritime choke points separating Greenland, Iceland and the United Kingdom, the G.I.U.K. Gap, which during the Cold War were crucial to the defense of Europe...

Russia to modernise sole aircraft carrier in 2017

Russia's sole aircraft carrier, the Admiral Kuznetsov , will undergo an extensive overhaul and re-fit from early 2017, sources within Russia's defence industrial complex have told the Russian news agency TASS.
The sources said a contract was due to be signed soon with Russia's United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) and that the overhaul work will involve a top-to-bottom modernisation of the carrier.

The modernisation of the carrier will take place in two phases, according to the reports. The initial contract will be for the configuration development that dictates which of the carrier's systems will be upgraded or replaced. "The Ministry of Defence [MoD] contract with USC on the aircraft carrier's repair and modernisation is worth several billion roubles, is carried out under the technical oversight of the Nevskoye Design Bureau, and is now ready - it will be signed in June," the source stated.

A new class of destroyer is in the works called Project 23560 Lider.The Leader Class is being called a destroyer,but whats in a name right ?  8)
I am not sure how Russia would afford 12 of this class,but I guess we will see how many actually get built.I would bet less than half that number.

http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/russia-set-build-12-new-monster-warships-armed-200-missiles-16427

The new warship is classified as a destroyer but will displace 17,500 metric tons, with a length of 200m (656.2ft) and a beam of 20m (65.6ft)—making it larger than most World War II-era heavy cruisers. Indeed, the Leader-class—which is expected to be armed with no fewer than 200 missiles—will be the second largest modern surface combatants built after the four massive 28,000-ton nuclear-powered Project 1144 Orlan battle-cruisers (better known as the Kirov-class).

Their new frigates are pretty capable as it is. I wouldn't be surprised if they realize how expensive 12 new Battlecruisers will actually be, and decide to spend the money on having more vessels.

That being, Russians haven't exactly been known for austerity...

Admiral Warns: Russian Subs Waging Cold War-Style ‘Battle of the Atlantic’

Russia has stepped up its submarine operations and is regularly probing U.S. anti-submarine networks in a new “Battle of the Atlantic,” the commander of U.S. 6th Fleet said.

In an article for the U.S. Naval Institute’s June issue of Proceedings,
http://www.usni.org/node/87164#footnotes

Vice Adm. James Foggo III outlined a new era in U.S. and Russian submarine warfare he dubs “The Fourth Battle of the Atlantic.”

In his piece, Foggo compares the current uptick in Russian submarine posture to the great submarine battles between the Allies and the Germans in World War I and World War II and the Soviets and the U.S. during the Cold War.

“Once again, an effective, skilled, and technologically advanced Russian submarine force is challenging us. Russian submarines are prowling the Atlantic, testing our defenses, confronting our command of the seas, and preparing the complex underwater battlespace to give them an edge in any future conflict,” Foggo wrote.
“Not only have Russia’s actions and capabilities increased in alarming and confrontational ways, its national-security policy is aimed at challenging the United States and its NATO allies and partners.”

Since the Russian seizure of Crimea in 2014, Russian Navy surface ships, aircraft and submarines have been much more active in presence operations – particularly the submarines.

Russian officials have been open about increased submarine operations over the last two years. Russian Navy head Adm. Viktor Chirkov said in March of 2015 that submarines operations have increased by 50 percent...
https://news.usni.org/2015/03/19/russian-navy-chief-submarine-patrols-up-50-percent-over-last-year

In addition to nuclear submarines, the Russians are improving the technological capability of their diesel-electric submarines, including the ability for Russian Kilos to launch long-range Kalibr NK cruise missiles.
https://news.usni.org/2016/06/03/admiral-warns-russian-subs-waging-cold-war-style-battle-atlantic

“These are the platforms that are the most challenging for us to deal with because of their inherent stealth,” Foggo wrote.

“As demonstrated last December by Kalibr launches into Syria from the Eastern Mediterranean, Russian leaders will use such weapons at will, without the same qualms we have about collateral damage.”

All told, Foggo outlines an “arc of steel” of Russian submarine strength from the Arctic to the Black Sea.

“Combined with extensive and frequent submarine patrols throughout the North Atlantic and the Norwegian Sea, and forward-deployed forces in Syria, Russia has the capability to hold nearly all NATO maritime forces at risk,” he wrote.

Built at the Admiralty Shipyards in Saint Petersburg, Russia's second largest city and home to its Baltic fleet, the Ilya Muromets is the first of a series of icebreakers ordered by the defense ministry in recent years.

"In 2017 this icebreaker will join the Northern Fleet to ensure our priorities in the northern basin," Admiral Igor Zvarich, who heads the technical department of the Russian navy, said during the ceremony.

Russian Nuke Sub Burned 600 Miles off the US Border
30 April 2016 12:01 Rubric: Russia, Industry

The fire raged for about 10 hours on the Russian nuclear-powered submarine Krasnoyarsk being disposed at the Kamchatka peninsula. That was the third similar accident happened in the recent three years to Project 949A Antey submarines.

All these fires were caused by either repair or disposal works on the atomic subs. In 2013, fire teams were sent to the Zvezda shipyard in the Far East, where SSN Tomsk was under technical recovery. The fire broke out during welding works with burning of inter-hull heat/sound insulation material between the outer casing and the strength hull. Fifteen military servicemen taking part in the firefighting activities suffered.

Latest Warship Encounter Brings Russian Protest
Christopher P. Cavas, Defense News 6:49 p.m. EDT June 28, 2016


WASHINGTON — The latest Russian-US kerfuffle at sea appears to feature a US warship making a close-in, high-speed pass on a Russian ship — but there may be more to the story than what a one-minute and two-second video shows.

The incident took place June 17 in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, and involved the US destroyer Gravely and the Russian frigate Yaroslav Mudry.

In a video posted June 28 on YouTube by the Russian news agency Sputnik, the Gravely is seen coming up on the Mudry’s port, or left, side, on a roughly parallel course. The Gravely then appears to pick up even more speed and maneuver directly ahead of the Russian, pulling away and rocking the frigate with its wake.

If the picture at the top of the article is actually taken from the Russian ship (and it does appear to be), this is a pretty standard warning pass to tell the other guy to "get the fu%# away from my carrier".

Nothing to see here, other than the Russians playing their usual games and trying to pass it off as coming from the other guy.

Article covers off the whole story, RU ship was 5nm from Truman, and Gravely moved in between them because they assessed it was trying to interfere with flight ops. The Russian ship also flew a false "restricted maneuvering" signal.
