      There was once an article on the Ministry of Defense that their (USA) submarines are much quieter than ours. But ours are being tightened now. Varshavyanka is quieter than the Americans.

    They are building up the group ... I think the DPRK is just an excuse to get to China and our Far East (information about the control of all ports in the region by the US armed forces was not a joke) ... nothing more ... and here Comrade Un generally works for the USA .. .

    Nice boat. From the NW carrier, they were redone into the CD carrier. 154 ax in one salvo, if not mistaken.
    We would have to remake our “Sharks" in due time ...
    And after such visits, the Japanese will talk about the return of the Kuril Islands?)))
