    Ready to punish the naughty. Need to be complete fool To continue to idolize the United States. Once again, I am convinced. Russia is the last bastion of free humanity. Otherwise, this will restore order on the planet.

    We must give credit that the idea is not bad. It can have both peaceful and military purposes. This did not bother us. The solution is even more interesting than Mistral.
    And now, near the coast of Syria, such a base would not be superfluous.

      "base" on the water is always superfluous. vulnerability is many times higher than on land, why?

        but efficiency. In general, this is not a warship, but a support ship.
        It turns out and the tanker, and tugboats, and different transporters are also not needed.
        In addition, do you always have the ability to quickly deploy a ground base ?.

    But you can’t overcome this luxury in any way? It would be very much to the court.

        c'mon about the escort, even our BDKs are escorted, to say nothing, even our super-duper armed aircraft carrier, and he goes under the escort. And yes, it’s really not a ship, but some garbage.

    A sickly face. Something tells me that the restrictions on wind and roll when landing helicopters will not be weak.
