    Background: Some of the latest ships in the Soviet navy took part in a sail past at the port of Vladivostok on Sunday (27 July).

    SYNOPSIS: American sources say the Soviet Union is stepping up construction of warships, including a probable fifty percent increase in powerful missile-armed cruisers. Analysts say Russia's shipbuilding programme for the 1980's seems to place greater emphasis to project naval power into remote areas such as the Gulf. The Soviet Navy has been extending its range of operations for more than a decade with a variety of advanced warships including the beginnings of a carrier force.

    Analysts believe that by the end of this decade the Soviet navy will be equipped with newer classes of large,heavily-armed fighting ships supported by auxiliary vessels so they can steam for long periods. Soviet naval planners appear to be focusing on cruisers, with four new classes of bigger, more potent and more sophisticated ships reportedly being built.
