I've read elsewhere that the Irish are going to issue a NOTAM for the affected area, so it should be obvious to all where they are. Not sure if it'll be in Shannon or Shanwick airspace though. Might mean a bit of P8, RC135 and U2 action down this way though.

From the Russian Military official website


A detachment of Baltic Fleet warships consisting of the corvettes Stoykiy and Soobrazitelniy departed Baltiysk for a long-distance campaign.

The main tasks of the campaign are participation of the ships in naval exercises under overall leadership of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, Admiral Nikolay Yevmenov, as well as ensuring naval presence and demonstration of the Andreev flag in different areas of the world's oceans.

During the sailing period the crews of the corvettes will conduct communication, air defence and anti-submarine warfare exercises and perform a number of combat exercises. Crews of deck helicopters of the Baltic Fleet Ka-27, based on corvettes, will conduct flying shifts at sea, carry out training on search for mock enemy submarines, detection of surface targets and search and rescue operations.

To ensure the detachment's safety, the ships have anti-terrorist groups from the Baltic Fleet marines. During anchorages on an unprotected roadstead and while crossing straits, marines will conduct training to repel an attack on a ship by mock terrorists.

For reference:

In accordance with the training plan of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation for 2022, a series of naval exercises are held in January-February in all areas of responsibility of the fleets under the overall leadership of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov.

The main focus of the exercises is to work out the actions of the Navy and Aerospace Forces to protect Russian national interests in the world Ocean, as well as to counter military threats to the Russian Federation from sea and ocean directions.

The exercises will cover the waters of the seas adjacent to the Russian territory, as well as operationally important areas of the World Ocean. Separate exercises will be held in the waters of the Mediterranean, Northern, Okhotsk Seas, in the north-eastern part of the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean.

In total, it is planned to involve more than 140 warships and support vessels, more than 60 aircraft, 1,000 units of military equipment, and about 10,000 military personnel to participate in the events.

Maybe a distraction technique to take eyes away from the Ukraine. Or simply a show of force despite the accumulation of forces along the Ukraine border.

According to https://www.navalnews.com/naval-news/20 ... -tensions/

It will be in the area of communication cables. So make a lot of noise on the surface whilst divers plug into the Internet?

Don't think you are having read that article, there's all kinds of things they could do, install monitoring equipment, leave remotely detonateable (if that's a word) charges although there will be seperacy redundnacy, both cable/fibre and satellite.
In this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig.

I'm not a paranoid person, but tampering with the Atlantic cables (if indeed they are in the same area) ready for if it kicks off with Ukraine, seems textbook to me as they will no doubt be putting things in place to retaliate to our sanctions if we do end up pressing the button, that you can be sure of...

Further to the above :roll:

A broad outline of the Russian Navyโ€™s exercise.

Initially there will be manoeuvres of the surface vessels during which all weaponry will be live fired.
After a couple of days, there will be misfiring of some weapons which will drop into the sea without detonating.

As these are both sensitive and potentially hazardous to shipping the exercise will be curtailed and the fleet will patrol the area prohibiting access to all other shipping for safety reasons.

Over the following months various Russian salvage vessels will be active in the area.

I hear the Irish Fishing Fleet are going to move in to the area. Russian Navy vs Irish Fishing boats - but if it became a drinking competition it could be epic.

I appreciate you are new, but don't you think that's below the belt (racist) to any Irish folk that are forum members?

Re your other point, don't forget some French fishing boats previously jammed up UK ports 100% in a protest!

That'll be the forward looking Ireland with a far far bigger domestic trade market than the UK?
