    In the absence of a sufficient number of frigates and corvettes in our Navy, it is necessary to send landing ships to the Mediterranean Sea as a part of the formation, and for the benefit of the business they deliver weapons, ammunition, equipment, etc. to Syria.

      Something to me Your logic is not clear. If the Navy had a sufficient number of frigates and corvettes, would the BDK not be sent? To deliver everything you have listed.

    These BDKs also worked out their term; they are still in service from the end of the 60 years, 20 centuries.
