Judging from the photograph of the ship, made a few days before the complete destruction of its hull, the Iranian side removed from it almost all the weapons and radio-electronic equipment.

    To the delight of Kaptsov, the pelvis, without armor, was washed ashore. We are waiting for the series of articles by the maestro laughing

        Internal armored bulkheads also serve as a power pack, and now there are mainly Kevlar against fragments. I believe that in any case, the design will be stronger. But I think it's better to leave it to Kaptsov repeat

        Yeah, dream on. Try breaking a real battleship with double sides or bottom for example.

        Why is a frigate or corvette in the Caspian? There are enough boats for the eyes, to guard the exclusive economic zone. There, any large (respectively expensive) ship is an excellent target for aviation, in which case.

        Apparently, in the Iranian fleet, too, the headache has not yet been eliminated, we must try to ditch such a corvette in the Caspian.

      Not in the Caspian. Even nature does not want frigates in the Caspian. There are enough boats there.

    I wonder how they made it like that and why it broke. Recalled the Soviet destroyer project 7 "Crushing." But there was an Italian design basis for the Mediterranean that could not withstand northern storms. And here all the same the Caspian, and not the Arctic.
