      20 years is not a term, a good purchase for such a penny.

        Experts express the idea that the Navy of the former mistress of the seas simply does not financially support the fleet. Therefore, they give Brazil, in fact, a new ship

          Anglo-Saxons do not give anything, very greedy. And 20 years of operation, it was even considered economically profitable in our USSR, because after this period, maintenance costs increase by a lot, and the period is such that it can be well involved in third countries.

      Why is this. they have two aircraft carriers on the way. And in view of the fact that the F-35 is not ready for them, the helicopters will land on them.

        Moreover, Avik himself does not represent anything outstanding. Neither in PLO nor in air defense can work effectively. Especially since no shock functions. But as a goal - a gorgeous trough.
        Well, show your flag over the horizon.

          And the Americans, aircraft carriers do not engage in PLO and air defense.
          There are escort destroyers for this.

    Brazilians can be congratulated on a good ship at a reasonable price. True, I think that the Britons will get their "top" on subsequent maintenance, upgrades and repairs in the next forty years ..

            Well, I don’t think that Brazilians are buying a pig in a poke, and the Britons did modernization just recently. So, that the ship is not bad, though nafig it is unclear to the Brazilians. not an aircraft carrier .. and vertical lines do not shine for them .. although ...

        Have you read the article at all or are you commenting on the title?
        It is said: Brazil is buying. And it’s not scrap metal - we have most of the ships 2 times older.

    It looks like a helicopter carrier and not a landing ship, Ocean, if memory serves, it is the only landing helicopter carrier at the Britons ... It was.
    Ocean’s withdrawal will leave the British fleet without any aircraft carriers at all for about two and a half or three years, since the first new British aircraft carrier R 08 Queen Elizabeth will not be operational until 2020-2021.
