Comments on: Russia’s Navy: More rust than ready http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/05/27/russias-navy-more-rust-than-ready/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: rdavi http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/05/27/russias-navy-more-rust-than-ready/#comment-86704 Mon, 09 Jun 2014 18:09:53 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=31280#comment-86704 Purchasing a couple heli platforms that they can neither protect nor maintain elicits a big yawn. The only thing that would make me take notice is if Russia gets its hands on one of North Korea’s unicorns.

Unicorn = win.

There will never be war between USA and Russia because of nuclear weapons. But there will be continuing international criminal activity by rasPutin and so the USA must ensure that the Russian economy rusts into oblivion also.

How is that? Advance weapon is only good for killing but not good for winning the war!

i think therefore this article misses the mark. i do agree with the comment about the akula class nuclear submarines above…but American and Swedish submarines are a dangerous if not undefeatable foe.

they have had a singular purpose since the 1950’s…namely bottle up the boomer fleet in Murmansk.

If war erupts over the Black Sea Naval vessels will be about useless. My understanding is that that will be an air war first and foremost…once we get beyond the economics of it all first of course.

Peace of course is always an option too.
And a good one i might add.

During the 1990es Russia survived thanks to American humanitarian aid… No wonder they Russia is so angry with America now. (sarcasm intended)

One should be able to distinguish the difference by different shades of rust.

I don’t know where you get the idea that it could “whip any ship of the U.S Navy”. Also, the statement that Russia made in 2005 about building “two to four” new aircraft carriers has been proven to be full of air. At absolute best they’re hoping to finish ONE by the mid 2020’s and even then, they’re shipbuilding know-how has severely deprecated since the breakup of the Soviet Union. This is on top of the fact that they just don’t have the money to match the tech on even the most modest US carriers.

Bwhahahahaha! Bless your little heart. I never knew the Russian Navy was so powerful. Imagine the heights you could rise to if you weren’t waiting in long lines for toilet paper. But no, really, you’re still a superpower. Seriously. We’re all really impressed…
