    Why doesn’t anyone rejoice? Another “unit” in the fleet .... Are you rushed to rejoice at the explosion at the nonsense? Or is the event of launching a boat, a Karl-boat, so insignificant that I don’t want to write or comment on it.

        And why there is no news about the transfer of the Ivan Crunch reconnaissance ship to the fleet?

        Why not? She was still on June 25: The communication ship "Ivan Khurs" leaves for the Black Sea Fleet.

      I don’t feel like writing or commenting.
      Especially against the backdrop of news such as the new Virginia class submarine, etc. And here we have: "the further development of raid boats." The theater of the absurd also begins with a hanger, but this is the lobby.

    Hydrographic vessels are also needed. Good service to the boat, it’s a pity they didn’t indicate to which fleet they would be assigned.

      Such boats are redundant, but they should be built in dozens and put into operation on time, And it looks like bantustan - fireworks on the occasion of the introduction of a six-oar sloop ...

    I agree that a hydrographic boat or vessel is no match for corvettes, frigates and destroyers, but ...
    Without measurements, maps, navigation aids, navigation support - destroyers, frigates and corvettes
    they won’t even be able to move away from the pier ... And for a hundred years, we have not built anything for Hydrography.
    Without the development of the domestic hydrographic service, our fleet simply cannot exist ...
    The USSR - was the only country that had a collection of maps for the entire Sharik, so ships could go everywhere. And now - to buy from the British, Germans, Americans, Japanese ???
