It is possible to transfer cargo to the shore and ships ",

        Hi,Herculesic. Not so well. There are moromans in the family. They walk around the globe in transport .. But I went on a different path. But I don’t forget the seas. hi drinksI wanted to get into coastal Aviation after college. It didn’t work out. One conflict with the battalion commander, and my career went to the bottom. I had to serve in the Strategic Missile Forces Aviation. Now she is subordinate to the commander of the Air Force.

      Without these ships and a surface combat fleet in those latitudes is not quite combat.

    With "Elbrus" a list of comments on the results of the XXI at hundreds of points. So let's be happy when they accept. And then chatter lately the sea. And then the ocean. “Accept ..”, “just about”, but in fact, shifts to the right now and then.

    Ice penetration 1 meter? He, even in Sovgavan, will not be able to work by the end of December (there he freezes up to one and a half). Maybe mixed up what?

      And you do not confuse about 1,5 in Sov.havani!? And how do ferries from LK1 go to Vanino without an icebreaker? But Soviet Harbor is not Magadan. Although there we were in the most severe frosts on an old cargo ship, of course, with the help of a port icebreaker we entered without problems. That's how it is.
