    Russia’s Nuclear “Carrier Killer” Kirov Class "Pyotr Veliky".

    Russia’s Nuclear “Carrier Killer” Kirov Class "Pyotr Veliky".

    There is no doubt that Russia’s Kirov class super-sized nuclear cruisers are charismatic fighting machines. Bristling with sensors and weaponry, and seemingly alien in design when compared to anything in the west, they are intimidating. But the truth is that they are also very dated and only one has remained in service for decades. That’s all about to change.

    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.

    TASS reports that the upgraded Kirovs will house a mix of hypersonic Zircon, supersonic Onix and long-range subsonic Kalibr cruise missiles, and that with an arsenal of 80 anti-ship missiles stuffed in their vertical launch tubes, these ships will have have “enough to engage any existing naval force globally.”
    When these nuclear battlecruisers hit the seas they will be some of the most powerful warships ever built, with an estimated to 174 main vertical launch cells at their disposal for medium and long-range surface-to-air missiles and anti-ship and anti-surface missiles.
    They will also bristling with updated close-in defensive weapon systems,including hundreds of point defense missiles, dozens of cannons and a formidable supply of anti-submarine rockets.

    The key being that you can't hit what you can't find. The west is invested in stealth because there's nowhere else to hide 'cept in plain sight... and you can't outrun a cruise missile anyhow. Missile cruisers have long been the future of naval warfare. With VTOL drones now common, even the vaunted carriers amount to little more than a floating base station.

    Not to mention, the surface to air missile threat is greater now than at any other time in history. Non-stealth aircraft are sitting ducks...stealth aircraft are at risk. Cruise missiles are more capable now than ever before.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Pueb...)

    USS Pueblo (AGER-2) is an American ELINT and SIGINT Banner-class technical research ship (Navy intelligence) which was boarded and captured by North Korean forces on January 23, 1968, in what is known as the Pueblo incident or alternatively as the Pueblo crisis or the Pueblo affair. Occurring less than a week after President Lyndon B. Johnson's State of the Union Address and only weeks before the Tet Offensive, it was a major incident in the Cold War.

    North Korea stated that it strayed into their territorial waters, but the United States maintains that the vessel was in international waters...

    Pueblo, still held by North Korea today, officially remains a commissioned vessel of the United States Navy. It is currently moored along the Taedong River in Pyongyang, where it is used as a museum ship...

    The ship was launched at the Kewaunee Shipbuilding and Engineering Company in Kewaunee, Wisconsin, on April 16, 1944...

    It was transferred to the United States Navy in 1966 and was renamed USS Pueblo... shortly after resuming service was converted to an intelligence gathering ship, or what is colloquially known as a spy ship, and redesignated AGER-2 on May 13, 1967...

    On January 5, 1968, Pueblo left Yokosuka, Japan, in transit to Sasebo, Japan, from where she left on January 11, 1968, headed northward through the Tsushima Strait into the Sea of Japan. She left with specific orders to intercept and conduct surveillance of Soviet naval activity in the Tsushima Strait and to gather signal and electronic intelligence from North Korea...

    ...January 22... a North Korean unit made an assassination attempt against the South Korean President Park Chung-hee, but the crew of Pueblo were not informed.

    According to the American account, the following day, January 23, Pueblo was approached by a sub chaser... The North Korean vessel then ordered her to stand down or be fired upon. Pueblo attempted to maneuver away, but was considerably slower than the sub chaser. Additionally, three torpedo boats appeared on the horizon and then joined in the chase and subsequent attack. The attackers were soon joined by two MiG-21 fighters. A fourth torpedo boat and a second sub chaser appeared on the horizon a short time later. The ammunition on Pueblo was stored below decks, and her machine guns were wrapped in cold weather tarpaulins...

    U.S. Navy authorities and the crew of the Pueblo insist that before the capture, Pueblo was miles outside North Korean territorial waters; the North Koreans claim the vessel was well within North Korean territory... North Korea, however, claims a 50-nautical-mile (93 km) sea boundary even though international standards were 12 nautical miles (22 km) at the time.

    The North Korean vessels attempted to board Pueblo, but she maneuvered to prevent this for over two hours and a sub chaser opened fire with a 57 mm cannon, killing one member of the crew. The smaller vessels fired machine guns into Pueblo, which then signaled compliance and began destroying sensitive material. The volume of material on board was so great that it was impossible to destroy all of it...

    Pueblo was taken into port at Wonsan and the crew was moved twice to POW camps, with some of the crew reporting upon release that they were starved and regularly tortured while in North Korean custody...

    Commander Lloyd M. Bucher, Commanding Officer of the Pueblo, was tortured and put through a mock firing squad in an effort to make him confess. Eventually the Koreans threatened to execute his men in front of him, and Bucher relented. None of the Koreans knew English well enough to write the confession, so they had Bucher write it himself...

    Following an apology, a written admission by the U.S. that Pueblo had been spying, and an assurance that the U.S. would not spy in the future, the North Korean government decided to release the 82 remaining crew members, although the written apology was preceded by a verbal statement that it was done only to secure the release. On December 23, 1968, the crew was taken by buses to the DMZ border...

    Odo Puiu info invites you to watch ….
    Putin's Russian Navy Warships Fleet 2o16/2o17.

    Battlecruiser Pyotr Velikiy….
    Pyotr Velikiy is the fourth Kirov-class battlecruiser of the Russian Navy. It is the flagship of the Northern Fleet. The battlecruiser is nuclear-powered warship and the largest and heaviest surface combatant warship (i.e. not an aircraft carrier nor an amphibious assault ship) in operation in the world.
    Its main purpose is to strike an enemy aircraft carrier groups and destroy both surface and shore targets. It is also used to provide complete anti-aircraft and anti-submarine defense.

    Aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov….
    It is designed to engage large surface targets and support and defend strategic missile-carrying submarines, surface ships and naval missile-carrying aircraft of the Russian Navy. The carrier is equipped to maintain 28 aircraft and 24 helicopters.

    Missile cruiser Moskva….
    The Moskva is the lead ship of the Russian Navy’s Project 1164 Atlant class of guided missile cruisers. It is designed to strike large surface ships, particularly aircraft carriers. In addition, the ship can carry out air defense using remote control and provide fire support.

    Cruiser Varyag….
    Varyag is the flagship of Russia’s Pacific Fleet. It is a Slava-class cruiser (according to NATO classifications). It was completed in 1989 and has operated in the Russian Pacific Ocean Fleet since 1990. The ship has a top speed of 60 km/h and can autonomously navigate for 30 days.

    Sovremennyy-Class Destroyer….
    The Sovremennyy-class destroyer as it is called in NATO is the flagship of the Baltic Fleet. The primary role of this guided missile destroyer is to attack enemy warships while also providing sea and air defense for warships and transports under escort. It complements the Udaloy-class destroyers in anti-submarine operations.

    Tatarstan Frigate….
    Tatarstan is the flagship of the Caspian Flotilla. It uses stealth technology which is provided by its outer coat made of aluminum-magnesium alloys. The main purpose of Tatarstan is to search and locate surface vessels, submarines and air targets. It provides protection for the marine economic zone.

    Corvette Soobrazitelnyy….
    Soobrazitelnyy is the second ship of the latest class of corvettes of the Russian Navy, the Steregushchy class. The ship is the first of its class to be fitted with the Redut system intended to increase its anti-aircraft capabilities with respect to the Kashtan CIWS system previously used. It is a part of the Baltic Fleet and it received the honorary title of “Guards” in 2012.

    U.S. NAVY WAVES WOMEN'S RESERVE IN WORLD WAR II HISTORIC FILM "DEAR BOSS" 48054
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Nov 7, 2016
    “Dear Boss” is a 1952 United States Navy recruitment film that tells the dramatized story of a small town girl who joins the United States Naval Reserve Women’s Reserve (WAVES) and, in a letter to her former boss, tells of her experiences in boot camp and on her first assignment. The “nonclassified” film opens to the strains of “Anchors Away” and WAVES marching in formation before returning to their barracks and the letter-writing begins. Her old boss laments to her successor on why she would ever choose the Navy over his cantankerous ways and life as a secretary, and how one day “she saw one of those Navy recruiting posters” and decided to enlist. We watch her meeting with a recruiter at mark 05:30 who explains that her role in the navy is as important as the Chief of Naval Operations. We watch her make her way through the recruits’ training center and meeting her “shipmates” at mark 07:23 before learning how to march and properly wear a uniform. A haircut, physical exams, and more marching follows, as does “Reveille” (at mark 11:50), lessons in US Navy history, calisthenics … and ironing. The WAVES are shown attending a dance with sailors at mark 14:54 and visiting with family at mark 15:37. The ladies soon get their duty station assignments and graduate basic training at mark 19:15. The film closes with the WAVES at their new assignments, from personnel assignments and medical corpsmen school to Naval Air Stations.

    The United States Naval Reserve (Women's Reserve), better known under the acronym WAVES for Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service, was the World War II women's branch of the United States Naval Reserve. It was established on 21 July 1942 by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by the president on 30 July 1942. This authorized the U.S. Navy to accept women into the Naval Reserve as commissioned officers and at the enlisted level, effective for the duration of the war plus six months. The purpose of the law was to release officers and men for sea duty and replace them with women in shore activities. Mildred H. McAfee became the first director of the WAVES.

    WAVES served at 900 shore stations in the United States, to include Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico and many entered fields previously held by men. As general line officers, Officer WAVES initially served in administrative and support roles, although many later served as attorneys (the Navy's JAG Corps was not established until 1967) and engineers. Many enlisted women became aviation mechanics, aerographers, air traffic controllers, parachute riggers, hospital corpsmen and radiomen, but most worked in the administrative/clerical and supply fields such as yeomen, personnelmen, disbursing clerks and storekeepers. The WAVES' peak strength was 86,291 members.

    The WAVES left behind a legacy of accomplishment. Upon demobilization, accolades came from many sources. The Secretary of the Navy, James Forrestal, Fleet Admiral Ernest King, and Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz all commended the WAVES for their contributions to the war effort.

    Chinese Navy BIG PROBLEM for US Military Power in Asia
    ArmedForcesUpdate



    Published on Nov 9, 2016
    A great promo video of Chinese military power. The People's Liberation Army of China (PLA; Chinese: 中国人民解放军) is the armed forces of People's Republic of China and Communist Party (CPC). Our patreon acc: https://www.patreon.com/southfront
    1 August is celebrated annually as Chinese Workers and Farmers Red Army Day. The PLA consists of five professional service branches: the Ground Force, the Navy, the Air Force, the Rocket Force and the Strategic Support Force. The PLA is the world's largest military force, with a strength of approximately 2,285,000 personnel, 0.18% of the country's population. 3 September 2015, paramount leader Xi Jinping announced that he would reduce the country's military personnel by 300,000.[6] The PLA's insignia consists of a roundel with a red star bearing the Chinese characters for Eight One, referring to 1 August (Chinese: 八一).

    The PLA is under the command of the Central Military Commission (CMC) of the CPC. Following the principle of civilian control of the military, the commander in chief is the Chairman of the Central Military Commission (usually the General Secretary of the Communist Party of China). The Ministry of National Defense, which operates under the State Council, does not exercise any authority over the PLA and is far less powerful than the CMC.[citation needed] A system of political officers embedded within the military assures party authority over the armed forces, so that the primary role of the Ministry of Defense is that of a liaison office with foreign militaries. The political and military leadership have made a concerted effort to create a professional military force restricted to national defence and to the provision of assistance in domestic economic construction and emergency relief. This conception of the role of the PLA requires the promotion of specialised officers who can understand modern weaponry and handle combined arms operations. Troops around the country are stationed in seven military regions and more than 20 military districts.

    Military service is compulsory by law; however, compulsory military service in China has never been enforced due to large numbers of volunteers from China's population. In times of national emergency, the People's Armed Police and the People's Liberation Army Militia act as a reserve and support element for the PLA, primarily for the People's Liberation Army Ground Force.

    Mission statement[edit]
    Former CMC chairman Hu Jintao has defined the missions of the PLA as:[7]

    Consolidate the ruling status of the Communist Party
    Help ensure China's sovereignty, territorial integrity, and domestic security to continue national development
    Safeguard China's national interests
    Help maintain World Peace
    History[edit]
    Main article: History of the People's Liberation Army
    Further information: Military history of China before 1911
    Formation and Second Sino-Japanese War[edit]
    Further information: Chinese Civil War and Second Sino-Japanese War
    The People's Liberation Army was founded on 1 August 1927 during the Nanchang uprising when troops of the Kuomintang (KMT) rebelled under the leadership of Zhu De, He Long, Ye Jianying and Zhou Enlai shortly after the end of the first Kuomintang–Communist alliance. They were then known as the Chinese Workers' and Peasants' Red Army (simplified Chinese: 中国工农红军; traditional Chinese: 中國工農紅軍; pinyin: Zhōngguó Gōngnóng hóngjūn), or simply the Red Army. Between 1934 and 1935, the Red Army survived several campaigns led against it by Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek and engaged in the Long March.

    During the Second Sino-Japanese War from 1937 to 1945, the Communist military forces were nominally integrated into the National Revolutionary Army of the Republic of China forming the Eighth Route Army and the New Fourth Army units. During this time, these two military groups primarily used guerrilla warfare, fought a few battles with the Japanese while consolidating their ground by annexing nationalist troops and paramilitary forces behind the Japanese lines. After the end of the Sino-Japanese War, the Communist Party merged the two military groups and renamed the multi-million-strong force the "People's Liberation Army" and eventually won the Chinese Civil War. A number of military regions were established in 1949. On 11 November 1949, the Air Force leadership structure was established and the Navy leadership the following April. In 1950, the leadership structures of the artillery, armoured troops, air defence troops, public security forces, and worker–soldier militias were also established. The chemical warfare defence forces, the railroad forces, the communications forces, and the second artillery, as well as other forces, were established later.

    Putin's 'Death Attack Fleet' Started Its Operations In Mediterranean Sea.
    Odo Puiu info



    Published on Nov 9, 2016
    Odo Puiu info invites you to watch ….
    Putin's 'Death Attack Fleet' Started Its Operations In Mediterranean Sea.

    The Kuznetsov battle group paused in its approach towards Syria off the east coast of Crete on Thursday, to carry out aviation exercises. Russian ministry of defense footage showed warplanes taking off and landing on its deck. The Kuznetsov is carrying about 10 Sukhoi-33 and four Mig-29 fighter aircraft, as well as up to two dozen helicopters. Although the Su-33s have recently been adapted to drop bombs more accurately, the plane has never been used for ground attack. Only the Mig-29 is designed for that purpose.

    If the planes are used to bomb targets in Syria, it would mark the first time Russia has used its only aircraft carrier in combat. That lack of experience, however, may limit its usefulness.

    The visit of its flagship to the Mediterranean is also a morale-boosting demonstration of military capacity for the Russian navy, which has not played a significant role in the Ukraine or Syrian conflicts, but which is seen by Vladimir Putin as vital to Russian self-image as a global power.

    A Russian frigate armed with cruise missiles has passed through the Bosphorus on its way to the eastern Mediterranean in a potentially ominous development for the embattled Syrian city of Aleppo.

    The Admiral Grigorovich, part of Russia’s Black Sea fleet, arrived off the Syrian coast on Friday as the latest pause in the Russian bombardment of eastern Aleppo came to an end, adding to an emphatic Russian show of naval force in the Mediterranean.
    Unlike the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier and Peter the Great nuclear-powered battle cruiser, whose arrival in the region has drawn considerable publicity, the newly commissioned Grigorovich has a fearsome ground attack capability in the form of Kalibr land-attack cruise missiles.

    Three Russian submarines from Russia’s northern fleet capable of firing Kalibr missiles are also reported to have arrived in the Mediterranean.

    Russia has used Kalibr missiles, equivalent to US Tomahawk missiles, against Syrian targets a handful of times over the past year. The concentration of forces in the eastern Mediterranean in support of the Syrian regime’s ambitions to retake Aleppo from rebel forces, suggest they may be used again in the coming few days or hours.

    ABANDONED SHIP Wreak visited by US Navy Divers
    ArmedForcesUpdate



    Published on Nov 9, 2016
    The up-and-coming device is known as the Dive Buddy Remotely Operated Vehicle (DBROV). The Dive Buddy is a purpose-built hybrid vehicle that can be operated as a ROV, a Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV), an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), or any combination of the three.

    Lee Cofer, NSWC PCD electronics engineer and Dive Buddy project lead, says the DBROV has a variety of beneficial aspects which will significantly improve efficiency and effectiveness of the diver’s assignments.

    “I believe all Navy diving will benefit from the Dive Buddy, in particular, expeditionary diving,” said Cofer.

    Cofer said the Dive Buddy was created to fulfill the need for a fly-away, agile base unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) platform with autonomous capabilities that is scalable and adaptable to the diver’s needs. Also, there is a need for a platform to have the ability to be outfitted with equipment and sensors that divers need for their specific mission at hand.

    The DBROV is able to carry backup life-support systems, tools, items of interest, perform dive site reconnaissance and tagging, navigate and transport the diver to dive sites, perform small area searches and provide forward looking sonar information and voice/video/data communications to the surface.

    During the process of developing the DBROV, the team of Navy scientists and engineers met with divers and individuals in the Navy diving community to get their input about what functions they need in a system.

    Cofer refers to the need for such an unmanned system capability as three-pronged.

    “The first need is for a system that can aid in decision support by providing dive supervisors and their teams with real time sensor feeds providing information on critical aspects of their underwater mission,” Cofer said. “The final is the human and machine teaming aspect that multiplies the diver’s effectiveness.”

    Cofer added that while the diver is the most critical and capable component in a dive mission, some tasks that are simple and/or repetitive can be assisted by or offloaded to an unmanned system. By doing this, there is better utilization of the limited bottom time of the diver for the more complex tasks that require greater agility.

    The DBROV will not only increase diver safety, but it provides decision support through harvesting a greater situational awareness and command and control for dive supervisors. Command and control is part of a three-tier technology pillar for Initial Response Diving, which also includes thermal management and decompression support. According to Cofer, it is beneficial for the fleet to use this system.

    “Navy capability for subsea human intervention that is rapid, low cost, and safe is extremely limited yet critical for all domain access, maritime security, power projection and sea control missions. Divers are necessary for these missions until the situational awareness, adaptability, agility and dexterity of a diver is duplicated in machines, likely decades from now. Meanwhile, unmanned systems are needed to sustain the Navy’s undersea asymmetric advantage,” said Cofer. “Addressing these operations by teaming divers with a specialized UUV has potential to safely achieve greater capability while addressing numerous documented mission needs.”

    Examples of missions the DBROV would be useful include disabled submarine escape assessment or assistance and recovery of classified debris before they are reached by hostile forces.

    In closing, Cofer stressed the significance of the Dive Buddy development, but explained it is not a replacement for human interaction. “DBROV is not a replacement for a diver, but a tool in their tool belt,” Cofer said. “The DBROV/diver relationship is an example of human and machine symbiosis.”

    All manufacturing of the Dive Buddy is completed in-house at NSWC PCD. Along with benefitting the fleet, this project was used as an innovative mentorship tool to allow seasoned scientists and engineers to foster learning with the up and coming workforce.

    The DBROV efforts are part of the Navy Innovative Science and Engineering (NISE) program, a sub effort of the Office of Naval Research’s (ONR) N-STAR program.

    Published on Nov 25, 2016
    Odo Puiu info invites you to watch ….
    Putin's Component Powerful Russian Navy Warships Sea Fleet in the Mediterranean. 2o16 / 2o17.

    The Russian naval group in the eastern Mediterranean includes at least six warships and three or four support vessels from all fleets.
    The group consists of heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser "Admiral Kuznetsov of the Soviet Union Fleet," heavy nuclear missile cruiser "Peter the Great", large anti-submarine ships "Severomorsk," "Vice-Admiral Kulakov," as well as support vessels.
    The "Admiral Kuznetsov" vessel carries deck-based Su-33 and Su-25 aircraft, as well as Ka-27/Ka29 helicopters.

    Aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov….
    It is designed to engage large surface targets and support and defend strategic missile-carrying submarines, surface ships and naval missile-carrying aircraft of the Russian Navy. The carrier is equipped to maintain 28 aircraft and 24 helicopters.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLMFy...

    Missile cruiser Moskva….
    The Moskva is the lead ship of the Russian Navy’s Project 1164 Atlant class of guided missile cruisers. It is designed to strike large surface ships, particularly aircraft carriers. In addition, the ship can carry out air defense using remote control and provide fire support.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIveo...

    Battlecruiser Pyotr Velikiy….
    Pyotr Velikiy is the fourth Kirov-class battlecruiser of the Russian Navy. It is the flagship of the Northern Fleet. The battlecruiser is nuclear-powered warship and the largest and heaviest surface combatant warship (i.e. not an aircraft carrier nor an amphibious assault ship) in operation in the world.
    Its main purpose is to strike an enemy aircraft carrier groups and destroy both surface and shore targets. It is also used to provide complete anti-aircraft and anti-submarine defense.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_lWM...

    Cruiser Varyag….
    Varyag is the flagship of Russia’s Pacific Fleet. It is a Slava-class cruiser (according to NATO classifications). It was completed in 1989 and has operated in the Russian Pacific Ocean Fleet since 1990. The ship has a top speed of 60 km/h and can autonomously navigate for 30 days.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWcUS...

    Sovremennyy-Class Destroyer….
    The Sovremennyy-class destroyer as it is called in NATO is the flagship of the Baltic Fleet. The primary role of this guided missile destroyer is to attack enemy warships while also providing sea and air defense for warships and transports under escort. It complements the Udaloy-class destroyers in anti-submarine operations.

    Tatarstan Frigate….
    Tatarstan is the flagship of the Caspian Flotilla. It uses stealth technology which is provided by its outer coat made of aluminum-magnesium alloys. The main purpose of Tatarstan is to search and locate surface vessels, submarines and air targets. It provides protection for the marine economic zone.

    Corvette Soobrazitelnyy….
    Soobrazitelnyy is the second ship of the latest class of corvettes of the Russian Navy, the Steregushchy class. The ship is the first of its class to be fitted with the Redut system intended to increase its anti-aircraft capabilities with respect to the Kashtan CIWS system previously used. It is a part of the Baltic Fleet and it received the honorary title of “Guards” in 2012.

    With the exception of the surprising setbacks inflicted by America's fledgling navy during the War of 1812, the 19th century was a time of unchallenged mastery for the Royal Navy. Nevertheless, technical innovations developed at an unprecedented rate and forever changed the face of the navy.

    320 Years Of Russian Fleet “A Huge Wave For NATO”.
    Odo Puiu info



    Published on Dec 2, 2016
    Odo Puiu info invites you to watch ….
    320 Years Of Russian Fleet “A Huge Wave For NATO”.

    “Any ruler that has ground troops has one hand,
    but one that also has a navy has both”, Peter the Great.

    This year the Russian Navy celebrated its 320th birthday. Russian Navy remains one of the world’s most celebrated. From its founding by Peter the Great for much of its history the Russian Navy, if not a blue water fleet – a force capable of operating globally – could still project Russian might far and wide. After the disastrous loss of the 1905 Battle of Tsushima to the British-aided Japanese, and the subsequent 1917 overthrow of the Tsar, the Soviet Navy for a time became little more than a coastal protection force. That limited role ended with Gorshkov. In the 1960s and 1970s the Soviet Union constructed a powerful global reach force of cruisers, destroyers and nuclear attack and ballistic missile submarines, culminating in the enormous Typhoon-class nuclear ballistic missile submarines.

    The Soviet strategy was pretty much the same as today. The strategy had four elements: to create protected bastions or spaces from which Soviet ‘boomers’ could launch ballistic missiles in relative safety; to protect the approaches to the Soviet Union; to provide an outer-layer for a multi-layered defence; and to harry and stretch Western navies through the aggressive deployment of fast nuclear hunter-killer submarines, particularly Western ‘boomers’ and surface forces.

    For much of the 1990s the Russian Navy fell into a terrible state of disrepair, eventually resulting in the tragic loss of the new nuclear attack submarine Kursk in 2000. The loss was due to a highly-dangerous experiment into the use of a form of torpedo propellant that the Royal Navy had also tried and abandoned in the 1950s. With the 2000 arrival in power of President Putin the Russian Navy has been steadily reclaiming its strength. Now armed with the new Iskandr family of missiles the Russian Navy is fast developing again the capability to exert power, influence and effect far beyond Russia’s borders.

    US Aircraft Carrier Enters Pearl Harbor For "Day Of Infamy"
    Gung Ho Vids



    Published on Dec 2, 2016
    The U.S. Aircraft Carrier USS John C. Stennis enters Pearl Harbor in advance of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day 2016. President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivered this speech to Congress one day after the devious attack by Japan on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 ---

    "Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its Government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific.

    The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.

    Yesterday the Japanese Government also launched an attack against Malaya. Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong. Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam. Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands. Last night the Japanese attacked Wake Island. This morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island.

    As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.

    Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.

    I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December seventh, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire."

    AFTERMATH OF PEARL HARBOR ATTACK DECEMBER 7th 1941 77374
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Dec 5, 2016
    This historic film, originally released as part of the Army-Navy News Magazine of the Screen in December of 1942, features Movietone cameraman Al Brick who photographed the Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941. As he explains, much of Brick's footage was seized by the U.S. Government as the extent of the damage to the U.S. Pacific Fleet had to be concealed from the American public and the world-at-large for national security reasons. By 1942, with the Japanese reeling from the Battle of Midway and no longer launching offensive naval operations, and with America's fleet on the move, release of the footage was allowed. The film, narrated by the famed commentator Lowell Thomas, contains footage of the Japanese attack and aftermath, including the devastating explosion on board the USS Arizona at the 1:30 mark. At 2:50, the USS West Virginia is seen and the USS Tennessee, as well as the capsized USS Oklahoma. USS Nevada is seen at the 3:17 mark. At 3:30, destroyers are seen sunk at anchor, and a seaplane base is shown utterly wiped out. Hickham Field is seen at 4:00. At 4:47, the recovery effort at Pearl is seen with the Tennessee and West Virginia, and USS Nevada, being salvaged and re-floated, as well as USS California at 5:30. The Nevada, California and West Virginia are all seen rejoining the fleet in the "year after Pearl Harbor".

    Much of the footage seen in this film was also used in John Ford's epic propaganda film "December 7th" which you can find elsewhere on our channel.

    We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment! See something interesting? Tell people what it is and what they can see by writing something for example like: "01:00:12:00 -- President Roosevelt is seen meeting with Winston Churchill at the Quebec Conference."

    This film is part of the Periscope Film LLC archive, one of the largest historic military, transportation, and aviation stock footage collections in the USA. Entirely film backed, this material is available for licensing in 24p HD and 2k. For more information visit http://www.PeriscopeFilm.com

    MILITARY WEAPONS FACTS:
    Oscar I class - Nuclear-powered cruise missile submarine - Oscar I class SSGN - Both Oscar I class attack submarines were decommissioned in the mid 1990s: The missile system had been created to test the underwater launched version of the P-120 for the subsequent Charlie II series of SSGN. The Oscar design introduced more improvements, and these included two 12-round banks of underwater-launched P-700 Granit (NATO designation SS-N-19 Shipwreck) long range supersonic anti-ship missile tubes outside the main pressure hull. In common with other Soviet submarines the Oscar class features a double hull, comprising an inner pressure hull and an outer hydrodynamic hull.

    MILITARY WEAPONS FACTS:
    FN MAG - General purpose machine gun - FN MAG - The FN MAG is the most widespread and successful modern machine gun of Western origin: Development of what would eventually become the MAG began in the early 1950s, when FN assigned their top designer, Ernest Vervier, to develop a general purpose machine gun along the same lines as the German MG-42 of World War 2. Several design attributes of the MG-42 were borrowed (including its trigger mechanisms, quick-change barrel, and spring-loaded dust cover), but much of the weapon was derived from the basic design formula of the venerable Browning Model 1918 BAR. In fact, Vervier essentially created most of the MAG by simply inverting the BAR's receiver, so it could be belt-fed from above rather than magazine-fed from below.

    MILITARY WEAPONS FACTS:
    M101 - 105-mm towed howitzer - M101 howitzer - The iconic M101 field howitzer is in service since the World War II: One of the M101’s unsung achievements was to create a market for 105-mm low-velocity high explosive rounds. This was brought about by the sheer number of 105-mm howitzers deployed around the world, from Mexico to Taiwan to Ethiopia. Other howitzers like OTO Melara’s Mod.56 and the L118 shared 100% compatibility with the M101’s ammunition type and kept the concept and practice of light artillery alive.

    ⚠️ Russia’s ‘Aircraft Carrier Killer’: 10 Facts About The ‘Moskva’ Cruiser.

    ⚠️ Russia’s ‘Aircraft Carrier Killer’: 10 Facts About The ‘Moskva’ Cruiser.

    The guided missile cruiser “Moskva” has deployed near the Syria-Turkey border to defend Russian aircraft participating in the military campaign in Syria from any aerial threats following the recent incident involving the downing of an Su-24 plane by the Turkish air force. RBTH presents 10 facts about one of Russia’s most powerful vessels.

    1. The Moskva is the lead ship of the Russian navy’s Project 1164 Atlant class of guided missile cruisers. It was laid down in 1976 in a shipbuilding plant in Nikolayev (Ukraine) and named Slava ("Glory").
    2. This ship is essentially a naval version of the S-300 long-range air defense system. In addition to anti-air missiles, the Russian vessel is armed with anti-ship missiles, anti-submarine mortars and torpedoes
    3. The Project 1164 cruiser has sometimes been referred to as an “aircraft carrier killer,” probably inspired by the 16 SS-N-12 Sandbox anti-ship missiles mounted on the superstructure.
    4. It was used by the USSR delegation during the Malta Summit (Dec. 2-3, 1989) between Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and George H.W. Bush. Stormy weather and choppy seas resulted in some meetings being canceled or rescheduled, and gave rise to the moniker the "Seasick Summit" among international media.
    5. The Slava was recommissioned as the Moskva in April 2000, and replaced the Admiral Golovko as the flagship of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet.
    6. The crew of the Moskva enjoy all that is needed for a normal life and rest during long periods at sea – television and radio centers, medical unit, library, cinema room, laundry, bakery, hair salon, gym and even a sauna.
    7. The raised flight deck on the stern allows the operation of a Ka-25 or Ka-27 helicopter, both developed for ferrying and anti-submarine warfare.
    8. The Moskva participated in the naval engagement between warships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet and Georgian patrol boats in the so-called “Battle off the coast of Abkhazia.”
    This clash took place during the Russo-Georgian War of 2008 when, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense, four Georgian fast missile boats attempted to breach a "security zone" that had been pronounced around Russian navy ships off Abkhazia, which media claimed were blockading Georgia’s coast. In response, the Russian units fired on the Georgian boats with artillery. One boat was sunk and the other three were forced to withdraw. The skirmish was the Russian navy’s first real marine battle since 1945.
    9. On Nov. 18, 2015, the cruiser was deployed to the eastern Mediterranean to participate in the Russian campaign in Syria. The Moskva has been now sent to the coastal Syria-Turkey border in response to the shooting down of a Russian Sukhoi-24 bomber by the Turkish air force on Nov. 24
    10. The Moskva cruiser can cover all of southern Turkey from Latakia, making sure that from now on Russian planes are safe in the air.
