U.S. Transport Warship Enters The Black Sea To Support NATO Allies

Click to see full-size image

On July 8th, he U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa announced that Spearhead-class expeditionary fast transport USNS Yuma (T-EPF 8) began its northbound transit into the Black Sea to operate with NATO Allies and partners.

Spearhead-class class transport warships are designed to transport 600 short tons of military cargo 1,200 nautical miles at an average speed of 35 knots.

The ship is capable of operating in austere ports and waterways, interfacing with roll-on/roll-off discharge facilities, and on/off-loading a combat-loaded Abrams main battle tank.

It is an expeditionary fast transport (EPF) and is equipped with an expansive flight deck, a load ramp capable of supporting 100 tons of weight, and a 20,000 square-foot mission bay.

EPFs have sleeping accommodations for up to 42 crew members, 104 mission personnel, and an airline-style seating for 312 people. Its aviation flight deck can support day and night flight operations for a wide variety of aircraft, including CH-53 Super Stallions.

From June 28 to July 10, the annual Sea Breeze naval exercises are held in the Black Sea. Their participants practice combat operations at sea, on land and in the air, including the landing of troops, anti-submarine and anti-aircraft warfare. The exercise involves 5,000 servicemen, 40 aircraft and 32 ships from 32 countries, including Ukraine, the United States and NATO members.

On the day of the start of the exercise, the Russian delegation at the Vienna talks on military security and arms control insisted that the scale and aggressiveness of the 2021 Sea Breeze in the Black Sea did not contribute to security in the region.

On July 1, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the Sea Breeze NATO exercise in the Black Sea was “provocative muscle flexing” and had “anti-Russian overtones.” In her opinion, the United States and its allies are turning the Black Sea into a zone of military confrontation.

At the same time, the Black Sea Fleet of Russia stated that they control the actions of the ships of NATO and other countries that participate in Sea Breeze – 2021.

Just LOL forever @ the USS Bone Homo Richard getting torched


Yup: Part of the Jews’ propaganda run up for their Urban Moving Systems attack on America was the USS Cole false-flag.


USS Floating Dumpster full of LGBTrash

ff ff

Yes it is, and the USA just arrived to ram it up your ass… after we run into everything else on the Black Sea. We sent a slow juicy target to parade on your turf.. do something about it

Russia needs to sink thess shitcans

Russia is playing by outdated rules, these Americunts only understand one thing, FORCE. Russia should take a leaf out out of the Iranian playbook and sink a few of these warmongeringfaggots ships. These NATO bastards don’t have the balls to fight as Afghanistan and Iraq are amply showing. Playing by the rules does not work with scum. The Black sea is a Russian historical lake and Ukraine is Russian land, so the Russian Federation is fully entitled to defend its lands and people from NATO queers who have no business in the region. Time to test some hypersonic weaponry and these low lifeCUNTS will run faster than fleeing from Afghanistan.

Houthis sank same ship

An Emirati supply ship similar to this US warmongers rustbucket was hit by Iranian NOOR SSM fired by the Houthis off the coast of Aden and sank in an hour. The Russians have far superior weaponry that can take out this can of garbage. During the USSR era the Americans and their NATO vassals were too scared to even go near the Bosporus let alone enter the Black Sea and openly taunt Russia, which should have sank the British or Dutch ships that violated Russian waters. Being civil to these NATO bully thugs never works.


Does this tugboat have a maternity ward, diaper changing tables, breastfeeding rooms, LGBTQ-friendly toilets, condom dispensing machines, Halal/Kosher/vegan/insect only meals and a play room? I will wager that most of these government jobs program boys and girls have never even heard of the Black Sea until this deployment.

Americunt LOSERS

But they will have a GAY PRIDE parade when they land in Odessa.


There is a Pizza Hut onboard as they have patents out on edible plastic which is what they use as a cheese substitute.

Diaper change station is mandatory with zionist “observers” onboard. You never know when a Palestinian child throws a rock from 3000KM away.

with all this lgbt whatsoever, do they even dare to name it “black” sea? or is this too rasist?


Luckily for the Einsteins at the Pentagon, most Americans probably can’t even point out that body of water on a world map so there will not be any rioting or looting in the streets. I say change the maps to say “Schwarzes Meer.” That would be less offensive.


The USA / NATO are trying to make it look like they aren’t impotent after this springs embarrassing standoff over the Donbass. This plays well to the taxpayer but all they are doing is giving the Russians intelligence gathering opportunaties. They are the attacking force … they’re the ones that need the element of surprise and they’re giving the Russians an opportunity to wargame against the real opponent. No strategy just looking tough to the electorate so they can stay in power another couple of years.


Agreed. The Russians sit back and run the nato imbeciles through a rat maze of their choosing.

They collect signals intelligence, test there countermeasures etc.


good point, especially with Russias Murmansk EW system deployed in Krimea


Here comes the USA Gay Navy, all maritime traffic are advised to retreat to a distance of at least 15 nautical miles or else be accidentally rammed while the Orificer on Watch scrolls thru her FaceBerg feed


Man, how I wish the Russians would stage a naval exercise in the Gulf of Mexico. Oh how the Jews’ propaganda-media would chatter.

ff ff

Russians would if they could find a host country, looks like the USA is offering better terms, which is ridiculoulous because we treat them like crap the past 8 years of Trump

I think too many people are missing the point.
And that is that NATO has nuclear capable missile launchers within short striking distance of the black sea naval fleet.
That is a win in their book.
When one considers what they are planning, everything is going very well for them.
