        I agree - a very strange choice of the country of origin. I would like to understand what is connected with this. Price? Probably the Chinese would offer an cheaper and more interesting option.

          Nothing strange, the remnants from the CMEA, they made a box of the case and sent for completion. Actually, the Sumerians were brought to that state exactly the same “Bay” in Kerch.

      Romania has a port and cheap labor. Everything else: technology, quality control, etc. foreign origin. The factories in Kaluga (VW) and Kaliningrad (BWM) do not surprise anyone in the absence of centuries-old automotive industry traditions :)

      But I do not understand your sarcasm. Build the same. Unfortunately, the readiness dates were not announced. I'm afraid the comparison is not in our direction. Even 40 years ago, no one could have imagined that China would become a sea power.

        The most interesting thing is that the Romanians themselves are still mostly floating on old rubbish.

    Even Romania, no offense to the Romanians, is “even” building ships faster than the Russian Federation. Here similar displacements are built, from bookmark to descent, for 3 years. e.g. project 22160 winked

    in early 2018, the shipyard completed the construction of two patrol ships of the Damen MSOPV 1400 project for the Tunisian Navy, and a little earlier, two patrol ships of the Damen Sea Ax 6711 project
    I agree that sarcasm is not appropriate - a decent construction speed

    In the late 80s, when Japan was the world leader in shipbuilding, no one could imagine in a dream that South Korea and China would bypass it. And it happened! It is a fact. Over the past 15-17 years, our Novoship has not ordered a single vessel in Japan, only South, Korea and China.

    Both Romanian shipbuilders?
    Well, the fact that the Romanians can sheathe the inside of yachts with wood and lure extra money from the customer, I kind of heard, but what would the warships build ..................
