    In the same respect, giant gas carriers of an ice-class displacement of much over 150000 tons are important, as many as 10 pieces ordered in South Korea for our fields. And also our super-boat on the Far East under construction is irreplaceable .... Any ships can be quickly rebuilt for military needs in case of mobilization. 1500000 tons of displacement for the Navy - this is a huge opportunity ....

      Achievement? Of course not. But this vessel will work to the good of the Anglo-Saxon world, and Russia almost the entire fleet of integrated support was sold out and sawn. Now the BDK provide the "Syrian Express."

    The news is disturbing, as the speed of remaking ships of a similar class is being worked out as a template for the future for shipyards of NATO countries.
    Either they are preparing for a war in North Korea or for a war with Iran.
    North Korea has neither oil nor gas, nor significant deposits of Uranus 235, Iran has Oil, and Iran is Afghanistan's neighbor with the largest deposits of Uranus 235.
    So this kind of news remaking civilian vessels in the military should be taken seriously.

    Exactly. One converted gas carrier into a container ship with a deadweight of 150Kt is the ability to transfer a motorized rifle division to an intercontinental range. Ten of these container ships are the transfer of an entire army. One flight. Potentially.

    Well, if you put a steel plate on it, it can be used as an anti-submarine helicopter carrier or as a landing helicopter carrier. Including Mi-26. It has a width of 50 meters ...

    By the way, this option could suit us as well. As a temporary measure. With the purchase of a vessel of a similar class in South Korea, for example.
