You shall not pass: Russia changes rules for foreign warships navigating through its Arctic.
RT.com 30 Nov, 2018 14:21
Russia is updating its navigation rules for a contingency involving another nation’s warships attempting to sail along the Northern Sea Route. Such a passage would require prior notification from the Defense Ministry.
The route, situated in the Arctic along Russia’s northern coast, is becoming more accessible to sea traffic as the climate warms. With longer navigation seasons and fewer ice hazards, Russia hopes the path will be increasingly in demand for international commercial transit. Such navigation however more often than not requires Russia’s cooperation, since an icebreaker usually is needed to pass through.
There is however a potential source of problems with Russia’s northern side becoming more accessible. Foreign military ships may travel it too, even those lacking ice protection, as was proven by the Loire-class offshore support and assistance ship of the French Navy Rhône in October. It took the ship 17 days to traverse the route and she didn’t ask for Russian icebreaker assistance for it.
Starting next year, Russia will require military ships traveling through Russian Arctic to give prior notification to the Defense Ministry, according to Gen. Mikhail Mizintsev, the head of the National Defense Management Center. He said amendments to the rules of navigation will be adopted before next year’s Arctic navigation season starts, RIA Novosti reported.
The Northern Sea Route requires going through Russian territorial waters, giving it the authority to set rules for passing ships.
Technically, international laws of the sea allow warships the right of innocent passage through foreign territorial waters under certain conditions. The right however may become tricky to put into practice, as evidenced by the famous 1988 bumping incident in the Black Sea, which involved a Soviet and a US military ship, or the latest flare-up between Russia and Ukraine in the Kerch Strait.
Sea trials of upgraded Borei-class nuclear submarine reportedly underway in Russia.
RT.com 3 Dec, 2018 15:03
The first Russian nuclear missile submarine of the upgraded Borei-A project is reportedly undergoing sea trials, a key phase before being handed over to the Navy. Three regular Borei-class subs are already in service.
The Borei class is to replace older Akula and Delfin class submarines as the backbone of the Russian naval component of the nuclear deference triad. They carry 16 Bulava submarine-launched missiles as their primary armament and may also fire cruise missiles from torpedo tubes.
The Knyaz Vladimir is the first submarine built as an upgraded Borei-A variant, which has improved communication systems, lower noise levels, and better crew cabins. It was laid down in 2012 and launched in November last year. According to bmpd, a respected Russian defense blog, on November 28 the submarine was deployed for sea trials by its producer, the Sevmash shipyard base in Severodvinsk. She is expected to enter service sometime next year.
Three Borei-class submarines – the Yuriy Dolgorukiy, the Aleksandr Nevskiy and the Vladimir Monomakh – are currently on active duty in the Russian Navy. They were commissioned between January 2013 and December 2014 and are regularly used as platforms for Bulava SLBM test launches.
Four other Borei-A-class submarines are in construction, with plans for two more previously announced. A Borei-B variant featuring a new propulsion system and other upgrades is being developed by the Rubin Design Bureau, the lead designer of the class.
‘Demonstrating valor from 400km away’: Moscow rebuffs Pentagon’s naval bravado in Sea of Japan.
RT.com 6 Dec, 2018 13:04
The US Navy bragged that its destroyer came to “challenge” Moscow in the Sea of Japan, but the ship didn’t even come near Russia’s territorial waters and was tracked all the way, the Defense Ministry said.
The US Pacific Fleet destroyer, ‘USS McCampbell’, entered the Sea of Japan on Wednesday. In a typical rah-rah fashion, the fleet’s spokesperson, Lieutenant Rachel McMarr, claimed that the ship sailed there to “challenge Russia’s excessive maritime claims.”
She explained that such operations “demonstrate the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows.”
It is the first time since 1987 when a US warship conducted a freedom of navigation operation close to Russian territorial waters in the Peter the Great Bay, the navy official boasted.
Moscow was left unimpressed. Despite all the bravado, the US destroyer actually “never came closer than 100km” to the Russian territorial waters, the Defense Ministry’s spokesperson, Major General Igor Konashenkov said on Thursday.
“Currently, the crew of ‘USS Campbell’ is ‘demonstrating’ its valor from more than 400km away from Russia’s territorial waters, in the central part of the Sea of Japan,” the military sarcastically remarked.
Moreover, during its journey, the US warship was closely tracked by a Russian destroyer 'Admiral Tributs' along with the aircraft of Russia’s Pacific Fleet, the MoD spokesperson noted.
The Russian vessel stayed “in immediate vicinity” of the US ship, the official stressed, so if ‘USS McCampbell’ managed to “demonstrate” anything, it was its “futile attempt” to use full speed to ditch the Russian destroyer.
Washington has stepped up its activity in the Pacific Ocean in recent years, with its ship conducting drills and freedom-of-navigation passages near Russian and Chinese territorial waters. Beijing slammed such operations as “provocative.”

Poseidon in action: Russia ‘starts’ underwater trial of strategic nuclear drone.
RT.com 25 Dec, 2018 10:28
A Russian strategic drone propelled by a miniaturized nuclear reactor is undergoing underwater trials, according to reports. The weapon, called Poseidon, is slated to become a new class of the country’s nuclear deterrence.
Poseidon, which was previously dubbed Status-6, was officially announced in March along with other upcoming weapon systems, meant to counter the development of anti-ballistic missile technologies by the US. It’s a long-range submersible drone capable of travelling at high speed deep underwater thanks to a miniaturized nuclear reactor.
According to a defense source cited on Tuesday by TASS, Poseidon is currently undergoing underwater trials as part of its development.
“The nuclear propulsion system of the Poseidon drone is currently being tested in a sea area protected from surveillance by the likely opponent,” the source said, using an old Soviet military term for the US and its NATO allies.
According to the source, the torpedo is carried by a nuclear-propelled submarine of the Russian Navy and that the developer hopes to complete the project before 2027.
The claimed reactor miniaturization technology that allows the creation of Poseidon is behind another weapon system, the development of which was announced this year – the intercontinental-range cruise missile Burevestnik.
Other weapons include a traditional-design Sarmat ICBM, a hypersonic air-launched ballistic missile, apparently meant to destroy aircraft carrier groups and similarly valuable targets, and a laser system of undisclosed purpose. The latter, some analysts believe, could be an anti-satellite weapon capable of disabling optical sensors in orbit.

Submarines of the Northern Fleet: The Beast Division.
RT Documentary Jan 27, 2019
With Combat Approved, get aboard the submarines of the Northern Fleet ‘Beast Division’ for a closer look at these mighty Shchuka-B class boats.
These attack submarines form the backbone of the unit and have equally bellicose names: Panther, Cheetah, Tiger, Wolf, Wild Boar, and Leopard.
Despite being third generation submarines, the underwater ‘predators’ have proved reliable carrying out missions to track potentially dangerous vessels and to defend strategic subs all while staying invisible.
Combat Approved goes to the Gadzhiyevo base in the Murmansk region for a unique opportunity to climb inside the Panther. The crew gives a tour of the main control room, while posters in the mess hall remind servicemen of NATO aircraft characteristics, overseen by the ‘Beast Division’ insignia.
With Combat Approved, visit the Nerpa shipyard to see the Wild Boar under repair, and take a look at the training facility where submariners hone their survival skills for all kinds of emergencies. For more about the sea ‘beasts’ and those serving on them, tune in for the full episode.

Russia’s Poseidon underwater drone can hit at least 200km/h – reports.
RT.com 4 Feb, 2019 16:13
Poseidon, Russia’s brand new underwater drone, will be able to travel at a whopping speed of up to 200km/h (125mph) and dive as deep as 1km to pierce any defenses, reports say.
The unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) “could penetrate any submarine warfare countermeasures and other enemy defense systems due to a fully autonomous control system,” a source within the military revealed to the TASS news agency.
It also shed some more light on the secretive weapon, many features of which are classified.
Poseidon will be able to dive at over 1km (0.6 miles) and at such depth the engine can propel her to 200km/h, the source added. “Taken altogether, intellectual and propulsion capabilities will make the vehicle invincible and make sure that it hits the target.”
The secretive torpedo is to be carried by a nuclear-propelled submarine of the Russian Navy.
While Poseidon’s velocity and maximum diving depth may seem surprising to the public, the technologies developed in the Soviet times may give clues as to how it became possible.
For instance, the Russian nuclear-powered submarine K-278 Komsomolets once reached a record submergence depth of 1,027 meters in the Norwegian Sea, Mikhail Khodarenok, a Russian military expert told RT.
“At 800 meters she was able to fire mock torpedoes through its tubes,” the expert said.
Likewise, there was an ultra-fast torpedo that entered service with Soviet Navy back in 1977. Dubbed ‘Shkval’ (Squall), the anti-ship weapon could travel at 200 knots or 370km/h under water due to its solid-fuel rocket engines.
“If much of this has been done long time ago, then why can’t these features be reproduced today, especially given the fact that all technologies, design bureaus, developers and traditions have been preserved?” the expert asked.
It is very likely that Poseidon can dive much deeper and move much faster than publicly acknowledged, he suggested. Everything available in the open sources “is to conceal true performance features” of the UUV, the expert argued. He said this is “common practice.”

1st ever VIDEO of Russian Poseidon underwater nuke drone ‘field-test’ released by MoD.
RT.com 20 Feb, 2019 14:19
The Russian Defense Ministry has released the first video ever showing an underwater 'field-test' of the Poseidon, a huge robotic nuclear-capable mini-submarine with a miniature nuclear reactor.
The strategic uber-torpedo was hauled inside a transport container, which mimics the storage compartment of an actual submarine playing mothership to the Poseidon. The weapon is then deployed out of the container underwater.
The Poseidon, previously known by its code name Status-6, is part of Russia’s future strategic nuclear deterrence capability. The drone is meant to be carried by a regular manned submarine and deployed when necessary.
The weapon uses its on-board mini nuclear reactor to slowly approach enemy territory at low speed deep underwater. If sensing detection, it can greatly boost its speed at the expense of noise and simply outrun its pursuer before going back into stealth mode. Once at its target, it can detonate the nuclear payload, devastating a valuable enemy asset like a naval base or an aircraft carrier group.
Russia publicly acknowledged the development of the weapon system last year, when President Vladimir Putin announced work on several strategic weapon systems meant to counter US attempts to undermine Russian nuclear deterrence capability.
The footage released on Wednesday shows for the first time the Poseidon system under water. The Defense Ministry also announced that the so-called ‘field test’ phase of the weapon system was successfully finished. The presumed intended carriers for the Poseidon are the project 09851/09853 submarines. The first such sub will be ready for service this year, according to Putin.
