    One Soviet aircraft radar designer once said: “It doesn’t matter how much the radar weighs. It will weigh a ton - we’ll make the plane bigger / more powerful. The main thing for it to complete the task is to detect the enemy before he does it.”
    Submariners "Dmitry Donskoy" - happy anniversary! good

    You can break the spears, about the effectiveness of this project, to infinity) and everyone will be right))
    But one cannot deny the fact that these boats are a miracle of design thought "in Russian")
    As a person who has some relation (albeit distant, precisely to her) to this topic, I can say that apart from pride, for them
    Does not cause any emotions.

    Oh, I’ve been to Nerpichy’s lip (they rode to the neighbors’ bathhouse, the stoker has died). Boats are beautiful! Goosebumps are so powerful. And when moving, it’s just breathtaking.

    Until now, the only boat with a sauna inside. True, the sauna is small, but, given the eternal deficit of space - very cool.
