    A patrol icebreaker with three machine guns that can be put on any ship, thereby turning it into a ship.

    It is alarming. Canadians have good shipyards, they quickly collect. And these descendants of exiles and convicts will climb into the Arctic zone.

        Sanya, speed doesn’t mean quality ... we still got ahead of this striped maple army in the Arctic ..... they expect that the ice will continue to melt, therefore it will focus on light ships

      You confused Canadians with Australians. No one was exiled to Canada. Siberians, by the way, are also descendants of exiles and convicts wink - and nothing: good people.

        About Siberia, it’s certainly not right .... There were both exiles and convicts, but the main part were immigrants. Moreover, there were at least three waves of settlement of Siberia.

        Residents of the so-called Gornozavodsky Urals to a large extent are descendants of the Katars, not Siberians (descendants of the Cossacks, Old Believers and exiles), without the Soviet period.

      Not right, Corsair, you are as straight as a left egg.

      There are decent, reasonable guys here too (sorry, a little of them).
      Canadians have a glorious, as I think, custom: to name an island in honor of the fallen Soldier (and there are many of them in Ontario, such as in Karelia).
      But, in the main, I agree with you - with Russia in the Arctic ~ 70 years late, and Canada and the USA are damn ...

      P.S. And they sent to hard labor in Australia; that was the earth the spherical edge of the other laughing drinks

          But English is spoken more.

    I wasn’t a ship at all, but I must say that the shapes, contours, and just the look of this ship in profile is incredibly disgusting. Maybe I'm wrong, but looking at the icebreakers of domestic construction, I note in them the refined elegance inherent in our school of shipbuilding and strict beauty. Andrei Nikolaevich Tupolev said: ugly planes do not fly. I really want to refer this phrase to Morflot.

    PS Iron with a gun. For whom are they going to shoot with this weapon, according to the White Bears? sad

    Russia, it is such, will make you shell out.

    And Great Lakes from the USA, how will they defend? The Yankees are already building military infrastructure and patrolling the Great Lakes with boats! And these lakes are fresh, drinking water!

    The ship is similar to an airborne airborne landing missile, without a docking camera of course, but there is a place for a pair of transport S-92 (CH-148) and descent airborne LCM.

    Circus!
    They are here to lower pensions below 67, damn it, "ne potentny"; corruption is even fatter than Moldavian, but they are going to capture the Arctic!
    Yes, they love indigenous peoples (show on TV like in a zoo) ...
    Good ambitions, and they dance pretty well in hockey, but the older uncle from the south adds aggressiveness to them :(
