He got a new coat of paint before beint sent for factory sea trials again. To recall what his coat of paint was before entering the dock, it was the old dark gray color.

Probably the only image of a Russian ship flying the NATO flag. Because FRUKUS exercises never had the flag hoisted

A rare image from the Russian forums () This is apparently from the Krivak II-class patrol ship Pytlivy ("Inquisitive") back in 2006(?) flying the NATO flag along the Russian Navy ensign.

It is always a pain for us to get funding. Since budget has been redirected for COVID efforts plus a lesser budget to work with for this phase of the modernization.

Here is the newest corvette for the Pacific basking in sunlight. I can also see clearly the almost camouflaged APARs at the base of the integrated mast. Only visible because of a white substance in the borders of the panel.

A good summary as to how "feasible" it is for the Algerians to have Steregushchiys in order when shipyards are full with Russian Navy orders.

Admiral Kuznetsov at Murmansk. Work is still being done, albeit at a slower pace. Most of the work is internal while the evident works above is mostly seen in the island. Photo by Pavel Lvov. Taken last October 20.

No spottings for the tanker. Either the tanker went ahead or it took the long way round since between them leaving Vladivostok, there were a lot of typhoons crisscrossing the SCS.

Being the Pacific Fleet's flagship (After Admiral Lazarev's retirement in 2007), it is a well maintained ship for years to come. Sadly it wouldn't get the Marshal Ustinov treatment of modernized electronics and radar due to "lack of budget".

Well, they are powered by gas turbine engines. The only type of engine that the Russian Navy (besides Marine Diesel Engines and Nuclear) that they could maintain well. AFAIK, they left Vladivostok w/o a tanker or a support tug. So normal AIS tracking for the group is hard.

Thanks! To add, this was the presumably the last imagery from the Buenavista doppler radar station. Concentric red circles indicate something was already wrong with the radar a few minutes past 4 AM. Referenced here:

Buyan-M's 3S14 VLS should "look" like this in frame:

I think that's Dagestan's 3S14 UKSK VLS. That is an AK-176 peeking out of the image.

An image of Kirov cutting through the rough seas. These ships were designed to use their weapons in any sea conditions as part of their technical requirements. They are usually regarded for their stability in rough sea condition in their AOR (e.g Barents).
