EPRON

The possible destination of Epron is the Spanish enclave Ceuta, where the submarine Novorossiysk is

On the same day Prut class submarine salvage ship of the Black Sea Fleet, Epron passed through Bosphorus. She is going to the Mediterranean to meet and escort the submarine Novorossiysk.

On 26 August 2015 the Ropucha class landing ships Azov and Tsezar Kunikov made their southbound passage. As the design of the ships is not suitable to carry any cargo on deck, their cargo remained hidden inside.

210

On 25 August 2015 the Baltic Fleet training ship 210 Smolny made her northbound passage through Turkish Straits with 300 trainees on board. Most of them were on deck when the ship passed through Istanbul.

UPDATE: The Cargo On Russian Landing Ship Nikolay Filchenkov

On 20 August 2015 the Alligator class landing ship Nikolay Filchenkov made one of her passages through Istanbul. The event was not worth of remembering if there was no cargo on deck of the ship.

During their previous passages Russian landing ships never had cargo on their top deck. Thus it is worth to look closer what Nikolay Filchenkov was carrying since we have new photos from Ms. Eser Çelebiler’s blog:

This is the approximate locations of the cargo on deck.

The help of the new photos we can say that there are 4 KamAZ-4350 6×6 and one GAZ-66 trucks plus 4 BTR type armored personnel carriers.  The other items hidden under the tarpaulin arouse the suspension most.

Any additional information or suggestions are welcomed.

Thanks to Yörük Işık and Arda Mevlütoğlu for helping me identifying the trucks and correcting my mistake in identifying the ship.

On 20 August 2015 the Alligator class landing ship Nikolay Filchenkov made one of her passages through Istanbul. The event was not worth of remembering if there was no cargo on deck of the ship.

During their previous passages Russian landing ships never had cargo on their top deck. Thus it is worth to look closer what Nikolay Filchenkov was carrying:

There are at least 4 KamAZ-4350 (either 4×4 or 6×6 but definitely not 8×8) and one GAZ-66 trucks plus 2 or 3 things under tarpaulin. Of course those things hidden under the tarpaulin arouse the suspension most. Their height is less compared to the trucks suggesting that they could be a launcher. In that case this could be one of two batteries of some kind.

Any additional information or suggestions are welcomed.

Thanks to Yörük Işık and Arda Mevlütoğlu for helping me identifying the trucks and correcting my mistake in identifying the ship.

This week we have witnessed the return of the Russian warships which took part in the joint Russian – Egyptian naval exercise.

First the flagship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet the Slava class cruiser Moskva returned from her 76 day deployment in the Mediterranean. Two day later the Nanuchka class corvette Mizrah passed through the Turkish Straits northbound.

These ships were followed by the tug Paradox towing the Tarantul class corvette R-32. The R-32 made headlines when Russia handed her over to the Egyptian Navy on 10 August 2015.

The ships of the Syrian Express deployment are also seen passing through Turkish Straits.

The flagship of the task force NRP D. Francisco De Almedia was first to leave.

The two ship strong Standing NATO Maritime Group-1 left Istanbul this morning.

SNMG-1 arrived in Istanbul on 24 July 2015, for a four day visit after spending 21 days in Black Sea with extensive training with Bulgarian and Romanian navies.

Unlike their previous passage through the Bosphorus, this time the ships sailed in broad day light making it much easier to take photos. Much appreciated.

USS Porter in Black Sea, after clearing the passage through Istanbul Strait.

In, the last 4 days we have again witnessed an increased activity of warships passing through Turkish Straits.

On 1 July 2015 very late in the evening Spanish mine hunter passed though Bosphorus and deployed to Varna Bulgaria. She was in Erdek for the Change of Command Ceremony of NATO Mine Countermeasures Group Two . Unfortunately there is no photo of this passage available.

On 2 July 2015 the two Russian Ropuchas Alexander Otrakovski and Korolev returnd tothe Black Sea from their Syrian deployment.

On 4 July 2015, the Standing NATO Maritime Group 1 consisting of F-334 NRP D. Francisco de Almeida and F-803 HNLMS Tromp passed sneaked through Istanbul Strait. Their passage is covered here.

On 5 July 2015 the French intelligence gathering ship Dupuy De Lôme made her southbound passage. This was not expected as a NATO naval exercise is about to begin in the Black Sea. Thus this spy ship could be very handy in the Black Sea.

Later the same day US Navy destroyer DDG-78 USS Porter made her north bound transit through the Turkish Straits. She is taking part in the Bulgarian naval exercise Breeze 2015.
