      I can assume that there will not be much growth. All the same, there is one choice, but to build a real object is different, there are not enough ballots and Tsika here.

    Great news, achievement !!! in short, our overpower ... and the Chinese built a new frigate.
    Oh, our fat belts with their yachts and other things shake, you see, and the fleet would grow more serious and more combat units ???
    And for the lifeguard is also good and very necessary !!!
