    And here is a successful Kalibr launch by the Marshal Shaposhnikov.

    The Marshal Shaposhnikov, an Udaloy class destroyer, recently test firing the newly installed Kalibr cruise missile. I think this failure was one of several tests because I am pretty sure I saw videos of successful test firings as well. It happens.

    I might be wrong but, I think Russia is going to claim the Arctic like China claims the islands in the South China Sea...

    Interesting satellite image of what might be a new missile corvette being built in Iran. https://news.usni.org/2021/03/29/irans-new-missile-corvette-could-reshape-irgc-naval-doctrine?fbclid=IwAR061j8gIqzx8Qjn6I1EzNiTL4E7eLfaMC0Z89vHxhLUd8rPB_N8WshkcUU

    I wonder if the Russians are far above the US and Canada's ability to use the Arctic to their advantage. Their fleet of nuclear-powered icebreakers keeps growing. I'm no submarine warfare strategist, but it seems like a good idea on their part. https://www.rbth.com/science-and-tech/331738-worlds-most-powerful-icebreaker A Wiki about their current fleet of nuclear-powered icebreakers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear-powered_icebreaker#Vessels

    Naval and Defense News 2020

    Germany is buying 5 x Boeing P-8A Poseidens for Anti- Submarine Warfare. They can cover the North Sea and Baltic Sea areas better I think and assist NATO forces elsewhere with it. https://nationalinterest.org/blog/buzz/poseidon-germany-buying-plane-kill-submarines-180239 The article mentions that Germany also intends to sail the South China Sea to guarantee freedom of navigation there. They intend to send one of their frigates, something they have not done since 2002. Hooray for another Boeing sale, a small win for the U.S. economy. Hopefully they can also show that they can get their quality back together again. (i.e. recent 737, 777, and KC-46 issues) Not sure what the best way to kill or detect submarines are, but the P-8A Poseiden sounds pretty cool in this article. https://www.businessinsider.com/us-navy-p8a-poseidon-sub-hunting-aircraft-features-sales-2018-5

    That 360 degree Combat Information Center looks really cool. Like a Star Trek bridge other articles say.

    Video: Life Aboard USS Ohio (Boomer Sub)

    The U.S.S. Ohio, Michigan, Florida, and Georgia of the class, were converted into conventional cruise missile boats in 1994 unfortunately, but it is kind of cool that they can now launch up to 154 x Tomahawk Missiles onto a target. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohio-class_submarine There are nuclear warheads for Tomahawks, so that might be kind of fun. The Navy is also developing the SLCM in the future that can be nuclear-able too. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomahawk_(missile)#Munitions http://www.ausairpower.net/Tomahawk-Subtypes.html https://www.defensenews.com/smr/nuclear-arsenal/2020/02/21/the-navys-new-nuclear-cruise-missile-starts-getting-real-next-year/

    It's a nice thing to see that all 4 x Iowa Class battleships are museums here in the United States. I was a tour guide aboard the U.S.S. Missouri myself long ago when I lived in Hawaii. It was an honor.

    French Aquitaine Class FREMM Frigate

    Though the video is advertising FREMM frigates in general it shows a lot of clips of the French Aquitaine Class FREMM Variant. It is kind of a nice ship to gaze upon.

    End of the USS Ticonderoga CG-47

    I hope they will make her into a museum somewhere.

    Russian Admiral Gorshkov Frigate

    Is this the frigate standard to beat right now? Neat animation showing how it defeats torpedoes and attacks submarines.

    Article on the design. https://navalpost.com/a-new-class-of-ship-by-russia-umk-varan/?fbclid=IwAR0s3elD3K0-lx5LEiSQyIM36qgKGTpPjkhCdgtcOh7uCmHGHEIVntpSHYw

    German Type 125 Frigate Criticism

    This article criticizes the German Navy F125 Frigates being lightly-armed for their size (7,200 tons) and under-performing due to what was included in their design (ex. a doubly redundant radar array, 2 x helicopter hangers, 4 x RHIB launch bays, etc...). Reading this article, I can see that compared to the rest of the world's frigates that it does not look comparable. After reading some of the comments however from actual taxpaying Germans (further below in the article), these ships sound like they are actually excelling in what they were made for which I think I agree with in the end. It excels in areas like performing escort, anti-piracy, humanitarian operations, etc... which are the most common missions in reality rather than possible eventualities. Nice ships. https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/16920/the-curious-case-of-germanys-massive-new-but-relatively-toothless-type-125-frigates
