      From six to 30 thousand tons of displacement. A humble such a run ...

      Well, be sure to find fault with the little things? A beautiful ship! Just think - a couple of tons back and forth ... Maybe it will be composite at all?

    Such articles are already causing laughter.

    The ship, into which the functions of various types of ships were crammed, had to attach wings to it, and the jet engine at the back, then it would already be clear to the child that it was a drowned man, not a ship.

    Russia first needs to launch small landing ships (armored ferries with high speed) in a series, then develop them for several generations, and only then, based on the experience gained, already invest in larger ships.

    About the 176-mm caliber, only the lazy one was not marked. But, if we assume that this ship will support the landing, then the 76-mm caliber is small ... better than the 100-mm for destroying enemy fortifications ... The 76-mm is small in its explosive impact. And if you only shoot at air targets - then 3 inches is enough ...

      And who said that it is intended for this? Throughout its architecture, it repeats the Mistral, and its main task is to make the KA-52 and missile strikes support the over-the-air landing and its landing ...
      I just didn’t understand if this project has the opportunity to provide medical support for the landing party and to organize a command post of the landing and landing forces ..
