Foreign Warship On Bosphorus in 2016 (Part 2)
10 Jan 2016 1 Comment
After a short lull at the Syrian Express deployments have resumed with the tandem south bound passage of Ropucha class landing ships Novocharkassk and Yamal. These two ships passed by the home bound cruiser Mosvka at the southern entrance of Istanbul Strait. Mosvka was stationed off the coast of Syria to provide sea-borne air defence for Russian forces. She was replaced by her Pacific Fleet sister Varyag last week.
The list of the foreign warships passed through Istanbul Strait is here.
