        They only forgot to add that it became part of the fleet as early as November 8.11.1974, XNUMX, that is, during the USSR.

            For a minesweeper, or rather its equipment, this is a very advanced age.

            Plastic is the basic minesweepers, and here we are talking about the sea. No new sea minesweepers are expected. But you can’t go far at the base, although as of now, RTOs are sent on a long hike. Everything can be laughing He underwent an internship at 266, it’s not a transmitted feeling when he went to board the Barents Sea almost 80g and think at least to return to the Polar as soon as possible laughing

                Well, if it’s interesting, you can google how much, but according to my feelings, when a shkonka from a horizontal position took a vertical one, it was something like this.

      A strange question, this is from a series of the Navy only consists of strike ships.

        This, dear, I understand quite well. I ask about a specific situation. Well, EW suppressed some of the tomahawks, acoustics monitor boats, etc. Does the minesweeper also have a specific, urgent task?

    Without noise and dust, issues are resolved slowly. That west has turned into brainless extremists. Just to set fire to at least something. When the Chinese are already ripe for cooperation, the matches of these radishes should be taken together. Don’t be late, guys, otherwise we’ll take it yourself, and then China will go past the cash register.

    Do not worry about the Dragon: it is interested in obtaining its own benefits.
    Can you guarantee that the dragon is interested in great matches? Maybe on the contrary, he is interested in keeping matches
