Russia will start producing six submarines and one aircraft carrier annually starting in 2013, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Thursday.
“By 2013, production capacity [at Russian shipyards] will allow us to build six submarines and an aircraft carrier every year,” Rogozin told reporters, adding that the number includes both nuclear and diesel-powered submarines.
As a result, the production output will surpass that of the Soviet era when Russia built an average of five submarines annually, he said.
Rogozin earlier said the production had been bogged down in the past by a lack of financing, outdated equipment and a shortage of skilled labor.
Russia is planning to build eight Borey class strategic submarines and up to 10 Graney class attack subs by 2020.

- email@example.comVery prudent move for the Russian military22:19, 02/02/2012This is a very prudent move for Russia militarily.
This is based on the information below written for this weeks Sam Barden article.
There are definitely a lot of financial changes that are going to be taking place around the world in the next 8 years going up to 2020 and then the next 10 years after that to 2030.
I was completely baffled by the agreement of the European Union to accept the oil sanctions against Iran that were put in place by the United States. Why would Europe jeopardize its own supply of oil from Iran? What could the United States offer to convince them to do this?
As you know the overall leadership of this Western group tends to think several moves ahead.
I think I know what the end game plan is with regards to the United States. The United States domestic reserves of oil run out in 2019 based on current production.
The United States produces 9 million barrels of oil a day.
The United States has sufficient oil reserves for 7 more years until 2019.
This means that by 2020 the United States needs to secure an additional 9 to 11.3 million barrels of oil a day to import.
The United States consumes 18.7 million barrels of oil a day.
The United States imports 9.7 million barrels of oil a day.
By the year 2020 the United States will need to secure an additional 9 to 11.3 million barrels of oil a day to import.
The only area of the world that I believe can accomplish this is the Caspian Basin area.
Control of the Caspian Basin / Caspian Sea area for the oil and natural gas will be important for the survival of the United States as a superpower.
Control of the Caspian Basin area will involve taking over Iran and Iranian oil reserves and then Russia and Russian oil reserves in this region.
The United States would prefer to take over and seize the oil reserves of Iran and Russia because to pay for the oil would simply make Iran and Russia financially stronger. The United States will NOT want to make either Iran or Russia stronger financially in USD currency. It simply will NOT happen! This money would then be put into national defence programs and weapons programs. Neither Iran nor Russia need to purchase American weapons for protection so their can be no balance of trade. So the only alternative is to seize the oil reserves of Iran and Russia by military force in the near future.
So the next step in the plan for the United States, Europe and NATO is to take over Iran and their oil reserves. Worldwide Iranian oil sanctions are the first step in this plan. The excuse is Iran's civilian nuclear program.
The big question has been will Russia, China and India support this effort by supporting the Iranian oil sanctions? The answer to date has been no.
Currently the USD is the reserve currency of the world. This occurred in the old days when the United States was the world's biggest exporter of oil. Times have changed dramatically though as the United States is now the world's biggest importer of crude oil.
Changing the world's reserve currency should be a pretty easy affair for countries that want to trade with each other.
Another currency can easily accomplish the task or moving to a completely new economic system like "Work Credits".
The only limiting factor is human imagination.
With the threat of military action inevitable leading up to 2020 and between the years 2020 and 2030, Russia needs to have a strong military defence in position to defend its energy reserves of oil and natural gas. This will of course include new submarines, aircraft carriers, helicopter carriers, 5th generation jet fighters and so forth.
It is Russia just being prudent knowing that the United States and Europe will begin to panic in 2019 as their domestic oil supplies run out.
The United States depletes its domestic oil reserves in 2020.
65% of European countries deplete their oil reserves by 2020.
85% of European countries deplete their oil reserves by 2030.
- firstname.lastname@example.orgEven more reason for Russia to worry22:50, 02/02/2012US Government sets up False Flag Iranian operation
Just released today on Yahoo, February 2, 2012.
The United States government is now releasing a propaganda story through Yahoo to prepare the population of the United States for a possible Iranian attack on US soil.
This of course would be a False Flag operation run by the United States government and military to blame on Iran.
This False Flag Iranian attack would justify a US military response to attack, invade and occupy Iran.
We have seen this before on 911.
The destruction of the twin World Trade Center Towers and the attack on the Pentagon was blamed on Iraq and Afghanistan to justify military operations in these two countries.
The events of 911 have been thoroughly documented and researched by US citizens and experts in various fields. The results of their findings point to massive corruption in the Bush-Cheney United States administration and the leaders of United States government policy as the perpetrators of these 911 events.
Yahoo news story released on February 2, 2012.
History may be about to repeat itself with a False Flag event to blame on Iran.
- JohnNSell a couple subs to Canada?19:08, 03/02/2012Given the problems that the Royal Canadian Navy has had with its UK-bought subs, maybe Russia could peddle a couple to Canada? But maybe RCN should get a discount because of the intel sold by S/Lt Delisle to you? Just asking...

The growing outright rivalry between the United States and China gives Russia more foreign policy weight, enabling it to assume the role of a balancer. So far it has been doing so rather skillfully. Today it may participate in a joint naval exercise with China that Beijing positions as outwardly anti-American. But tomorrow it can team up with the naval forces of the Old World.
