What’s stopping the Russian navy from sailing up the Pivdennyi river and parking some destroyers and cruisers next to Mykolaiv until the city capitulates from bombardments and saboteurs?

      For sailing up a narrow river, it's not just Harpoons stopping them.

      And mines, and HIMARS, camoflaged MT-12 shore batteries, Brimstone missiles, even ATGMs like Sugma-PP. It would be hilarious to see Russia try.

    Close combat is not something ships are great at.

    But, they should absolutely do it, I want to see a video of some Uki madlad taking out a Russian cruiser with a Stugna-P

          God imagine a Wargame: Bloodlands campaign where you play as the Ukies, spend political points to purchase NATO wunderwaffe, and face waves of Russian T-62s

            That's basically what all of the Red Dragon campaigns felt like.
            >face 192 North Korean tanks and 20 Su-25s with your 3 K2s, but don't worry the American are coming
            >face 220 Chinese tanks with your 9 SAS teams and 15 Territorials, but don't worry, the rest of the Commonwealth is coming (and the Americans too)

    shore defenses, probably. best way to not get hit by an anti shipping missile is to stay out of its range.

    Probably because Ukrainians would wipe out those ships with precision strikes.

    Pretty sure the Russian sailors threaten to mutiny any time they sail more than 50km west of of Sevastopol these days.

    Well, if we ignore the mines.

    If they had no ASMs they could literally just use direct and indirect artillery on such a predictable and mobility constrained target. Fire enough artillery and it'll be dead soon enough.
    Hell, javelins and larger Ukie ATGM's would work given enough of them.

    A ship sailing up to gun range is the same as a regular gun, except the enemy knows where it is, and it can sink. Russia has a fuckton of regular guns, no need to risk a ship costing hundreds of millions t be used as a regular gun.

    They don't have any left in the Black Sea fleet. It's all down to some frigates, patrol boats and submarines.

    This is the dumbest fucking idea I've read in a long time. Do you really struggle to imagine what would happen if they just sail their navy into a river, in the middle of a land war that's dominated by long range artillery? Actual cosmetic brain.

        Almost everyone forgot to mention MT-12 towed AT guns, which in a confined channel like the Pivdennyi would be serious coastal artillery.

    Modern ships are very thin when it comes to armor, would be interesting to see them get obliterated by rpgs and bmp 1 autocannons. Funnily enough they might make it further with a ww1/2 ship than the modern stuff.

    Yeah just move unarmored ships up a river that's completely within Ukrainian artillery range.

    they don't need to sail up there to bomb the city. they simply don't want to because it's not politically viable. same reason why they don't drop a nuke on it.
    besides sailing up there would make those ships too easy to shoot.

    >sailing up
    The Russian navy is only designed to destroy other ships and blockade which it had done completely already the surface fleet isn't designed to shell the coast with 180mm the submarines do that with missiles instead
