Peter the Great Update: It's About Time!



Gist: The deployed Northern Fleet battle group has met Venezuelan Armed Forces. Having just barely entered territorial waters, they picked up an honor guard of Venezuelan Su-30s, the very kind that Russia has sold to Latin America. The Peter the Great and other ships will rest at anchor at the port of La Guaira, 35km from Caracas, while ashore they prepare to welcome Russian sailors, who in turn will return the favor.

Venezuela welcomes us! The task force enters territorial waters in the Caribbean Sea. This very morning two Su-30s are in the sky, made in Russia, sold to Venezuela. They circle the task group one after the other. Our sailors render honors to a friendly country and this frigate will escort us to the port of La Guaira. The exercises between the countries will last until the first of December. These will be the first exercises in history involving the submarines, frigates, cruisers and helicopters of Russia and Venezuela.

Comrade officers, I will now brief you on the exercises between Russia and Venezuela, ((missed))-2008.


They discuss the plans that lay ahead in the Navigator's shack - joint patrolling, search for and destruction of submarines and ships belonging to the potential enemy, reconnaissance and anti-air warfare. The militaries of the two countries have been preparing for these large scale exercises for a couple of months. The official language of the exercises wont be English, Spanish or Russian but the language of symbols and signs.

We have created a table of conditional signals which have been translated into both languages and both countries have approved this table of signals. These signals will be used during the exercise....


There is activity above decks as well. Two presidents will visit Peter the Great: Hugo Chavez and Dmitriy Medvedev.

This is the first time Peter the Great has visited South America. The cruiser was built for northern waters and not for the Caribbean. The air temperature is 34 degrees and the water temperature is 30.

Captain, Peter the Great, Feliks Min'kov: The ship has been at sea in the open ocean. Whether we want it or not, we have to battle against the effects of salt water, or just plain water. So we have to clean up everywhere.


The flag of Venezuela already flies on the mast. It is naval tradition to fly the flag of the countries in whose port you are conducting a friendly visit. Today the sailors checked out the missile tubes. The Peter the Great's armament will be shown to the presidents of both countries.

What is there to show? The Peter the Great is the largest non-aircraft carrier warship in the world. Two hundred and fifty meters of steel with dozens of missile tubes. And beneath each of these three ton hatches lays the main battery - the Granit nuclear anti-ship cruise missile (RNB comment - Huh! Well how about that!). As opposed to American cruise missiles, the Granit flies to its target at supersonic speed like a fighter jet. There is no ship as powerful as the Peter the Great in the world.

There wasn't a ship as unsinkable as the Titanic also...the sea is unpredictable and shit happens to the best of them.

And remember, Su-30s, made in Russia, were sold to Venezuela. In case the article didn't make that clear.

Errr, what is it exactly youre trying to say with the first part of your comment? The commentators did not claim it was "unsinkable", they said it was the largest non-ac warship in the world, a simple fact.

And yes, the Shipwreck missiles are often armed with nukes, the warhead is either a 750kg HE or a 500kt nuke, they were specifically made to destroy ac battle groups.

They havent carried nuclear warheads in decades and there is no evidence that this has changed. Zvevda like Red Star is often just bad propoganda.

Of course, I should add that the Military Channel in the US is just as bad and just as inaccurate.

Anonymous said...

They haven't carried nukes because of an agreement they have with the US not to carry tactical nukes in peacetime. I'm pretty sure that they could install nukes on the Shipwreck missiles from a stockpile pretty quickly if needed. I think its still valid to call them nuclear missiles if they have the designed capability to carry a nuclear warhead, even if they currently dont.

Does the Russian navy (and rest of the armed forces) still use "Comrade" etcetera?

Welcome to Venezuela!

The largest non-carrier warships in the world are the US Navy IOWA class battleships, each twice as big as the PETER THE GREAT. They are in reserve but fully capable of being reactivated if need be. With 32 Tomohawk cruise missiles, 16 Harpoon missiles, twelve 5 inch guns, and nine 16 inch guns, they are the most powerful surface warfare vessels in the world.

Anonymous said...

yeah, those 5inch guns are gonna be of GREAT use against 650KM ranged cruise missiles. The IOWAs are useless for anything other than shore bombardment.

The Kirov has 20 Granit missiles, 96 S-300 missiles, 128 SA-N-9 missiles, 44 OSA missiles, a further crapload of missiles in the Kashtan modules, and 2x AK-130 guns, each of which can spit out 60 130mm rounds a minute.

Sarpvinash said...

The reason why Iowa was brought out of mothballs and the Surface Action Group was formed arose from the threat posed by the Kirov-class. Also Peter the Great was built to hunt carrier groups in the Pacific, while Iowa was the product of an entirely different environment - comparing them may not be fruitful.

Anonymous said...

The Iowa class eats Exocets but lets focus on the present: There will be no live fire training between Russia and Venezuel; instead of a 21-gun salute, the Ruskies received a 20-gun salute for the 21st gun malfunctioned; Chavez and Medlev's bodyguards got into a tussle on the gangplank (looks like Chavez's bodyguards were denied boarding); 22 ranking Russian officers were robbed of personal belongings at a Caracas five-star hotel; two Russian military men have died in Venezuela - the first had a coconut fall on his fead while napping and the second committed suicide over a woman.

The Russians are welcome but they will reap what they plow. Lots of wishful Russian thinking here for Venezuelans and Chavistas in particular are incompetent beyond belief.

And you believe someone will consume the crap you are spitting? Have you ever been to Venezuela, Russia or Cuba? You americans are so damn irritating that I don't have a word to describe you. After all your short sighteness will be the judging factor of your own destruction.
