Russia announced Thursday it will hold huge naval drills involving more than 140 warships and supporting vessels this month and in February, at a time of heightened tensions with Western nations.
The war games to be held in the Atlantic, Pacific, Arctic, and Mediterranean will involve "more than 140 warships and support vessels, more than 60 aircraft, 1,000 pieces of military equipment, and about 10,000 servicemen," the defence ministry said in a statement carried by Russian news agencies.

In this age of modern technology which includes but not limited to pin point satellite positioning, stealthy missiles and drones, and near silent, stealthy submarines, the era of surface combatants is over. Sadly many brave young sailors of all nationalities will die before the “battleship” admirals and the politicians come to understand the new reality.
Lots of targets.
Olympics end February 20.
Things will get very interesting after that.
Biden is a joke. A bad joke.
Do we even have 140 ships anymore?
Atlantic, Pacific, Arctic, and Mediterranean
Note the Artic, Russia’s backyard in terms of military and commercial activities. Very important region for them.
The over/under of the number of ships returning to harbor without the aid of tugboats is 123.
No problem for The Bidet as long as his rubber duckie stays afloat in his bath tub.

In a matter of months the geopolitical scene could change dramatically, and not in a good way for us.
I don’t want to think what it may look like three years from now under Calamity Joe.
Putin and China Xi are in this together. The Russian ships sent out into the Atlantic and western Pacific are to overtax our US Navy and shore-based Air Force sent out to monitor the Russians. Russia has a big strong army so Russia sailing out its Navy does not lessen its military power. Putin may attack the Ukraine soon or wait until China’s Olympics is over Feb. 20. You can bet after that date Russia will move on Ukraine and Xi will invade Taiwan. Biden’s more sanctions are not a deterrent.
It's deja vu 1962 all over again! (Except this time, the idiocracy is running the US.)
With their track record, how many will sink, burn and or have to be towed back to port ?
This is good. I wanted to see that new carrier with the coal furnace belching out smoke... lol
Milley is getting ready by playing a couple rounds of Battleship! “Sunk you!”
