Report article RSS Feed Battle for Kaliningrad

Kaliningrad – the pearl of the Baltic sea, before the end of World War II known as Koenigsberg – capital of East Prussia, now is a stronghold of Russia in the heart of the Western world. Who controls Koenigsberg – controls the Baltic. No matter how strong is the Baltic division of European Colonial Fleet, still with Russian harbor and military base in Kaliningrad the European naval power is extremely vulnerable. The green light for the invasion of the city was given.

Kaliningrad oblast, Russian exclave
Year 2


Kaliningrad – the pearl of the Baltic sea, before the end of World War II known as Koenigsberg – capital of East Prussia, now is a stronghold of Russia in the heart of the Western world. Who controls Koenigsberg – controls the Baltic. No matter how strong is the Baltic division of European Colonial Fleet, still with Russian harbor and military base in Kaliningrad the European naval power is extremely vulnerable and can’t reinforce Estonia in case of invasion. Not mentioning the Russian Iskander-M missiles which threaten the whole European anti-ICBM shield. Supplemented with some European politicians’ demand for returning back the once European lands and hopes that the surrender of Kaliningrad will provide much needed support for the Russian pro-democratic movement, the green light for the invasion of the city-stronghold was given.

June of year 2 (since the beginning of war): the siege of Kaliningrad\Koenigsberg has begun. Few in Kaliningrad did expect that to happen except a handful of young navy captains.


Under the pretext of preventing a Russian invasion in Estonia, European heavy Type 45 destroyers escorted by le Fantasque submarines began the firing at military installations and docked ships in the city. Russian defenders replied with Iskander-M launches at European ships and military bases in Denmark and Germany. Though the Russian naval inventory at Kaliningrad was heavily outdated, the attackers lost a single Type 45 destroyer, 3 FREMM frigates and a number of smaller vessels. However the defending fleet also suffered heavy losses.


Day 5 of the blockade: now it’s the time for taking out the fearsome S-300 sites. The Europeans were afraid to use conventional airpower extensively knowing about the heavy anti-air facilities in the city. However EU has not yet shown its most impressive weapon: Eurofighter 3000 Hurricane jets able to avoid most known SAM sites and having almost no equal competitor in the skies. Except just one:
Russian Sukhoi Su-50, known to the West as “Firefox”. Several days before the siege has begun Russian navy captains requested a squadron of Su-50s to enforce the Kaliningrad defending force. The battle in the sea is over and the battle for the skies has just began.
