“red alert, the Russian polar bear back to the Pacific.” Recently, the Western media have reported that the Russian Far East gathered in three main large-scale fleet exercises to declare the Russian naval forces in the Pacific on the strength. Right now, the Russian Navy’s three main fleet concentration nearly 40 warships in the North Pacific, staged massive live ammunition exercises, there are signs that the military observers exclaimed: “The Russians are trying to Andre flag (flag of the Russian Navy) inserted over the world’s oceans. “
exercise equipment, three fleet” healthy “battle
According to Russian media reports, the Russian armed forces as” Oriental -2010 “large-scale strategic and operational part of the exercise, starting from June 30, from the Russian Navy’s Northern, Black Sea and the Pacific Fleet’s three large ships and nearly 40 more than 70 fighters, near the Russian-Japanese dispute in the South Kuril Islands waters of a large-scale exercises.
surprising is that the outside world, to express support for the revitalization of the Navy, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev deliberately sit halfway Northern Fleet flagship “Peter the Great” nuclear-powered cruiser, the Arctic along the path to the Far East, in person to observe the naval exercises.
Although the Russian government and military leaders have repeatedly declared that the exercise is not directed at other countries, just to test the results of Russian military reform and the ability to defend the country, but military experts have pointed out that the Russian side The site selection exercise to mobilize troops and equipment and the way that the “East 2010″ exercise is clearly in the U.S. “show of strength” in order to establish its hegemony in the Asia-Pacific can not shake the sea.
In fact, the offshore waters of the exercise was to draw the Russian naval vessels and helicopters, hazardous areas, banning all ships near, but the United States and Japan have ships, drill ships in the waters of a nearby place, and the “action is quite suspicious.”
drills drill-the-horizon anti-ship warfare
“East 2010″ part of exercises including landing at sea, seizing command of the sea, area air defense, anti-submarine, accompanied by escort and other subjects.
highlight of the exercise period in the sea battle, the Russian Pacific Fleet flagship “Kuznetsov” cruiser with the powerful P-500 “basalt” supersonic anti-ship missiles of 300 km against simulated aircraft carrier The target ship, and Medvedev take the “Peter the Great” cruiser will also launch more powerful, as the case of P-700 “granite” missile, which can be destroyed in more than 700 kilometers outside a large aircraft carrier.
fact, the Russian Navy’s high-profile exercises-the-horizon anti-ship warfare, clearly demonstrate the meaning of the U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups, according to the Russian Navy, “a volley” theory, the Russian navy will strive in future conflicts pre-emptive strike, launching a large number of supersonic anti-ship missiles, long-distance destruction of the enemy fleet. In addition, the main Russian Pacific Fleet, “Admiral Vinogradov” and “Saposnikov Marshal” to the large anti-submarine drone has fired anti-aircraft missile 3K95 dagger, this is the first years of the missile live firing, has been of great concern to analysts.
purpose of training Naval Operations exercise capacity
to compensate for the Russian Navy ships retired a few years ago caused by excessive offensive the “deficit”, the Russian military in The long-range air force exercise in the war at greater weight.
from the Russian Volga – Ural Military District, Siberian Military District of the Su-24, Su-34 frontline bombers deliberately non-stop from 8,000 kilometers away, the Pacific, during the exercise as well A-50 AWACS and IL – 78 tanker to provide protection, they are at sea with cruise missiles destroyed the enemy target, which means “not enough ships, aircraft Minato,” the Russian ocean-going operations will be a major feature.
view of the Russian Navy’s “most valuable family property” are to get the Pacific, Russian military analysts Makiyenko said, “East 2010″ exercise political purpose is to show, “Russia’s armed forces muscle” to expand Russia’s strategic space, but there are training at the tactical level, the Russian Navy’s ocean and “no base of operation” capacity was intended.
the U.S. Rand Corporation analyst Schwartz also said that the Russian navy exercise will attract the United States, Japan and even South Korea’s extensive attention, “as long as the Russian fleet in the public and spend a day at sea, both for intelligence gathering and anti-reconnaissance contest will last one day. ” He stressed that the Russian people are consciously and systematically to modernize its naval forces in order to maintain its target of considerable strength with the United States to become possible, and ensure that their weapons to defeat the U.S. aircraft carrier battle groups.
