What is the ship firing its gun on the link? It doesn’t look like a Russian ship and I’m pretty sure there isn’t a crotale looking weapon in the RU navy.

I think you’re right, Lisa.

Dammit, I should have caught it since I’ve been chini mil watching for the past year too.

In my defense, the Type 052 was before my watching days. I know 052B and up. And had no idea I needed to dig into the PLAN’s fleet for a video on the Russkie navy. lol

French admiral rated Russian submarines

WASHINGTON, May 16 - RIA Novosti. Modern Russian submarines are "incredibly fast and quiet," said Admiral Christophe Prazak, Chief of Staff of the French Navy.

Russian submarines are modern, incredibly fast and quiet," said Prazak, speaking at the Center for International and Strategic Studies in Washington.

The admiral also noted a sharp increase in the number of ships of the Chinese Navy. According to him, only in the past four years, China has put into operation 80 ships, which equals the entire surface fleet of France. In addition, he said, China is already building an aircraft carrier.

All this, according to Prazak, shows that France and the fleet of other NATO countries can not guarantee their leading positions in the world.

MH-60R Seahawk production winds down as international interest remains tenuous

Production of Sikorsky’s MH-60 Seahawk is set to conclude in the next 18 months as the US Navy tops off its fleet and potential international customers have yet to commit to buy additional aircraft.

The USN is set to receive the last of the 280 MH-60R variants in the programme of record this June and then another eight of the helicopters in 2019 – additions to the 2018 budget. The Saudi Royal Navy is to receive 10 MH-60Rs in July.

“The production line is still active. It is still operating. It is coming towards the end of its life,” said USN Capt Craig Grubb, who manages the MH-60 helicopter programme. “If you want to buy MH-60s this is the time to act.”

International customers are expressing interest in the MH-60R but have yet to make commitments, he added. The MH-60R is operated by Australia and Denmark, in addition to the United States and soon Saudi Arabia.

Seahawk helicopter missions include anti-surface warfare, combat support, humanitarian disaster relief, combat search and rescue, aero medical evacuation, special operations and organic airborne mine countermeasures, according to the USN...
