We are in Sevastopol, the city where fleet has always been so significant.
And this is a big asault ship of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation "Caesar Kunikov".
Excellent photographies as usual! Thanks.
Very interesting. I was stationed on two tank landing ships in the US Navy so I’m very familiar with this type of ship. I’m trying to figure out what the console on the bridge to the right of the lee helm is. Ballast control?
The one that says “Pilot bridge. Сhartroom and pilot-house are here”
The console in the foreground is the lee helm, the engine controls. I’m thinking the one to the right may be ballast control. Beaching a ship involves moving a lot of water around between different tanks to get the right trim.
Looks right but I can’t make out any labelling. Location makes sense as well. Ship is a stern loader so well deck control needs to be front & center for the Captain. There is a similar panel in the engine control room for fuel, I suspect.
“Flatware samples, no others are allowed”
So, smuggled contraband flatware is a problem on Russian navy vessels?
Great set of pics, I love this site.
I am amused by how the air conditioner is installed crooked in the wardroom
