An oil painting of The Battle of Trafalgar. This painting depicts perhaps the most famous moment in the most famous battle of the age of fighting sail, when Admiral Nelson on HMS Victory broke the line of the enemy ships. Unfortunately for Nelson, he was shot down by an enemy sharpshooter at this moment of his greatest glory. His body was returned home in a cask of brandy, to London for a hero’s welcome.

obrienstudio. A tight sketch for a painting of the battle of Flamborough Head. Durin

A tight sketch for a painting of the battle of Flamborough Head. During the American revolution, this is when John Paul Jones brought the fight to the British homeland. John Paul Jones supposedly said “I have not yet begun to fight“ as his severely damaged ship was burning and sinking below him. Yet he went on to win the battle.

Another monume

Summer in Bulgaria Admiral’s maneuver Cape Kaliakra. . Another monument on Cape Kaliakra is dedicated to Russian admiral Ushakov.

The Russian fleet under Admiral Fyodor Ushakov, of 15 battleships and two frigates faced here with the Ottoman–Algerian fleet under Hussein Pasha of 18 battleships and 17 frigates and some smaller craft at anchor just south of Cape Kaliakra. Ushakov sailed, in three columns, from the northeast, between the Ottomans and the cape, despite the presence on the cape of several guns. . The tactics used by Ushakov were an innovation in the theory of sea warfare. After that, a similar maneuver was used by Admiral Nelson in the Battle of Aboukir in 1798 and the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. . . Маневр адмирала. . Продолжим историю мыса Калиакра - здесь стоит памятник российскому адмиралу Ушакову.

У нас же было 18 линейных кораблей, 2 фрегата и 19 вспомогательных судов. . Ушаков применил в сражении внезапный маневр – русские корабли на полном ходу вошли между береговой линией и стоявшей на рейде турецкой эскадрой, отрезав противника от помощи береговых батарей. В результате неожиданной атаки часть вражеского флота ушла на дно, а часть обратилась в бегство. . Через очень недолгое время после битвы турки заключили с Россией Ясский мирный договор. Во время битвы эскадра адмирала Ушакова потеряла только 17 человек и ни одного корабля. . #bulgaria #capekaliakra #admiralushakov #navalbattle #болгария #калиакра #адмиралушаков #войнастурками #ялюблюпутешествовать #вокругсвета #безгида

The Vietnam People’s Navy has star

Via Asian Pacific Defense Journal: The Vietnam People’s Navy has started discussions with Russian state-owned arms export agency Rosoboronexport on a possible acquisition of larger warships than the current Project 11661E Gepard 3.9 class frigates, four (4) ships which are active in its arsenal. Interest was made on the export version of the Russian Navy’s Project 11356 Admiral Grigorovich-class frigates (Krivak IV), and also to the larger Project 22356 Admiral Gorshkov-class frigates. Both designs are larger and more capable than the VPN’s Gepard 3.9 class. Sources from Vietnam believe that the VPN is interested in at least 2 new ships. Currently the Project 11356 has been exported to India, with 2 ships being built in Russia allocated for the Indian Navy, while also granting license production to produce 2 more frigates in India. The ship has a length of 125 meters, a full displacement weight of 4,000 tons, has a maximum speed of 30 knots powered by 4 gas turbines engines in Combined Gas and Gas (COGAG) configuration. The Project 22356 is the export version of the Project 22350 being used by the Russian Navy. It has a length of 135 meters, a full displacement of 4,750 tons, and a maximum speed of 30 knots powered by 2 diesel and 2 gas turbine engines in Combined Diesel and Gas (CODAG) configuration. Both ship designs can be configured according to the end user’s requirements, although basic weapon configuration for Project 11356 include a 100mm A-190 naval gun, two 4-cell UKSK VLS for Yakhont or Kalibr anti-ship cruise missiles, two 12-cell VLS for 9M317M surface to air missiles, two AK-630 close-in weapon systems, a launcher for 8 Igla-S or Verba VSHORAD missiels, two twin 533mm torpedo tubes, and an RBU-6000 anti-submarine warfare rocket launcher. Meanwhile the Project 22356 has a 130mm A-192M naval gun, five 8-cell UKSK VLS for Yakhont or Kalibr anti-ship cruise missiles, two 16-cell Redut VLS for a variety of surface-to-air missile models including the 9M96 series or quad-packed 9M100 missiles, two Kashtan CIWS, and two quadruple 330mm torpedo tubes.

Batalla de Actium (31 A.C) Entre las fuerzas de Octavio Augusto y Marco Antonio, aliado con Cleopatra, la última reina del Egipto Ptolemaico, rompiendo así el segundo triunvirato de Roma. Tras la paz de Brindisi en el 40 A.C los territorios romanos son reoartidos entre tres grandes personajes: África para Lépido, Hispania e Italia para Octavio y Galia para Marco Antonio, quien además tendría a Egipto como su territorio. Cuando comenzaron las hostilidades, Lépido procuro mantenerse al margen pero Octavio consiguió convencer al senado de que Lépido intentaba alcanzar el poder atacando primero Sicilia, lo que llevó al senado a tomar la decisión de exiliarle. Así Octavio solo tendría que preocuparse por Marco Antonio y Cleopatra. Cerca la costa griega de Actium se dispuso la batalla. El bando de Marco Antonio contaba con grandes trirremes egipcios que superaban en número al ejército de Octavio. Al principio la batalla iba a ser terrestre, por lo que Octavio mandó a su fiel amigo y estratega Marco Vespasiano Agripa para cortar los suministros del campamento de Marco Antonio. Debido a que sus tropas pasaban hambre Cleopatra optó por una batalla naval en Actium. Los barcos pequeños y ágiles de Octavio resultaron muy efectivos durante la batalla dandole una gran ventaja. Esto hizo que Cleopatra al ver la batalla perdida retirase sus pesados barcos y ordenar la huida. Marco Antonio se subió al barco de su amante, donde permaneció largo tiempo desesperado y con las manos a la cabeza, dejando a su suerte a las naves romanas que le pertenecían sin el respaldo de las egipcias, las cuales pasarían a ser parte del botín de guerra de Augusto. #Roma #RomanEmpire #Empire #Imperium #Acient #Cleopatra #MarcoAntonio #OctavioAugusto #Augustus #Caesar #César #RomanWarships #Trirreme #NavalBattle #Battle #Egipto #Egypt #Aegyptus #Rome #Lépido #SegundoTriunvirato #Ptolemaic #Ptolemaico #Imperial

Esta batalla, también cono

Batalla de los Acantilados Rojos (206 D.C) Esta batalla, también conocida como la batalla de Chibi fue uno de los conflictos más importantes de la antigüedad y tuvo lugar en la China de la dinastía Han. Esta dinastía fue la responsable de crear el siglo de oro de la nación. Pero en los años previos a la batalla estaba azotada por corrupción, hambrunas e invasiones. Durante este periodo Cao Cao, señor de la guerra se enfrentó al líder militar Sun Jian, heredero de Sun Ce para conquistar las tierras sureñas del rio Yangtsé. La fuerza de Cao Cao se estima en 200.000 soldados, lo cual es una cifra desorbitada respecto al tamaño de los ejércitos de esa época, además las fuentes antiguas hablan de exageraciones de 800.000 hombres. Por el otro lado su oponente contaba con tan solo 50.000. La batalla comenzó por tierra con pequeños combates que forzaron la retirada de Cao Cao, debido a la baja moral del ejército. Cuando volvieron a enfrentarse, el bando rival de Cao Cao fingió su rendición. Comstruyó unos barcos incendiarios sin tripulación que el viento condujo hasta el ejército de Cao Cao, quienes no sospechaban de la trampa e incendiaron los barcos. Las llamas se expandieron y quemaron la flota de Cao Cao provocando la confusión, la cual fue aprovechada para atacar dando lugar a una desastrosa huida de Cao Cao y su posterior derrota. #CaoCao #China #Acient #Army #Battle #NavalBattle #AcantiladosRojos #BattleOfChibi #History #Military #AcientArmies #TotalWar #ThreeKingdoms

The breath before the drop....the knowing that even when you have to fall and let go that it is not always the worst thing that can happen, but that something or someone will be ready to catch you. Sometimes letting go and free-falling is indeed the biggest blessing that you can have. Looking forward to my solo again tonight where I get to trust, cry and let go all over again. .

vietnam_defense_news. Little known fact: While South Vietnam had the larger and better equip

Little known fact: While South Vietnam had the larger and better equipped naval force with bigger vessels between the divided Vietnams, the Vietnam People's Navy was the first and only between the two Vietnamese navies to gain missile technology, in the form four Komar-class missile boats transferred sometime around 1972. In addition to their twin P-15 missile launchers, the ships were armed with dual 25mm cannon in a single enclosed forward turret. Their only known engagement was an attempt to attack the US navy cruiser USS Sterett (CG-31) during the battle of Đồng Hới, where the cruiser's RIM-2 Terrier surface-to-air missiles intercepted the Komar's P-15 anti-ship missiles with relative ease. With a short operating range and used primarily in only a defensive manner, the Komars were never used to engage against South Vietnamese naval forces and did not take part in the East Sea naval campaign against the south during 1975. They were eventually retired in favor of the Osa class missile boats which are still in service today. #GDQP #qdndvn #qđndvn #peoplesarmyofvietnam #vietnampeoplesarmy #vietnampeoplesnavy #haiquanvietnam #vietnampeoplesairforce #khongquanvietnam #navalbattle #war #mightyvietnam #specialforces #Vietnam🇻🇳 #quansu #haiquanvietnam #army #vietnam #vietnamnavy #navy #airforce #hqndvn #kqndvn #quandoinhandan #quânđộinhândânviệtnam #quandoinhandanvietnam #vietnamesenavy #QĐND #ship #corvette
