            Judging by the tonnage and contours of the boat at the speed of knots in 35. In practical operation is not difficult. Not considering the maintenance of the machine. But if there diesel stands out from work horses, then it will be normal. Convenient and spacious cabin. Confuses only a couple of points. This is the deck covering in the tank and waist area. In the sun it will be so heated that even the fried eggs. For comparison, a different coating is applied in the cockpit. And the second point is the draining of water on the starboard side. If this is water from the first engine cooling circuit, then these are additional difficulties

      A banal change of generations ... how many museums do not build, you can’t put your brains and memories into others. The USSR collapsed almost 45 years after the Great Victory and the flag over the Reichstag. They believed the West, even the second generation of communists left power, there were no living witnesses of Tsarist Russia left, as a result of a romantic upturn for the White movement, many began to consider themselves descendants of nobles rather than illiterate peasants with an average life span of 40 years.

    Well, if at the expense of the Pentagon, then I do not mind, otherwise the dragon is a friend to us like Ukraine, so far it is beneficial. But we have something to offer, and the Vietas are not bad at it; we need to push through if we don’t want to voluntarily. laughing

      Yankos donated boats and SKA for nothing, but with us they acquire weapons for money. Although we know why such generosity is all because of the Chinese. And to smear us in shit for the fact that we are as if in friendship with these Chinese. But with the Chinese, as they say, this is only business and nothing personal.
