In light of the incident in the Kerch Strait, the United States will continue to support Ukraine and will continue to provide military assistance to Kiev to confront Russia in the waters of the Azov and Black Seas. In this case, the main will be the delivery of two more decommissioned patrol boats. This was stated by the Commander-in-Chief of the United Armed Forces (OVS) of NATO in Europe, American General Curtis Scaparotti, reports TASS.


US “strengthens” Ukrainian fleet with two more decommissioned boats


Speaking to the US Congress, he confirmed that the Pentagon plans to supply sniper to Ukraine in the future weapon, ammunition and marine systems. Also, according to him, the United States will continue to strengthen the Naval forces of Ukraine, supplying them with various equipment, but the main supply will be the transfer of two more decommissioned Island class patrol boats to replenish the composition fleet and confront Russian ships. At the same time, Scaparotti did not specify when exactly the United States would transfer boats to Ukraine. In addition, the United States will increase funding for some assistance programs to Kiev.

The United States has previously transferred two Island-class patrol boats to Ukraine. The ceremonial signing of the agreement, which was attended by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, was held in Baltimore at the end of September last year. Boats are still in the US, in Ukraine they say that they will be introduced into the Navy of Ukraine this fall. In this case, before the transfer from the boats removed all weapons. Kiev pays for the modernization and repair of boats, their transportation to Odessa and personnel training.

The Ukrainian Navy said that after arriving in Odessa, they would supply weapons to boats and ship them to the Sea of ​​Azov to "confront Russian aggression."

          The skakuasas had problems with these toys :: Petro Lekseich threatened everyone that his enterprises would not put slingshots to these boats, since other weapons were already removed from these boats :: in addition, his team had disagreements about the caliber of the stones to be shot these slingshots (they say that they are intercontinental !!!) - I do not have enough education to capture the meaning of this power! laughing

          hi
          It's not funny, because the "exceptional" will not be limited to two old boxes to help the Nazi Ruin. After the withdrawal from the INF Treaty, calls are increasingly heard in Washington for the deployment of lethal American weapons (anti-ship missiles and the notorious medium-range missiles) on the territory of the Ruins, and this is no longer funny and requires an increased attitude from the Russian Federation.

        Oil is not anyhow, fuel, too, rare parts, expensive. It’s expensive to keep junk in order. And besides, these are boats by the shore of the guard, not the Navy.bully

I don’t remember nude at all.

                    Before the collapse of the Union, in Ukraine there was everything in huge quantities. The question is, is it now? And if it remains, then in what condition? I doubt that it is operational. In addition, no one was engaged in the full training of military personnel capable of correctly using and maintaining such systems. Specialists with more Soviet training left, and new ones, as it were not.

                      Well, of course. it’s just curious and true how they want to launch RCC. Well, I do not believe that they themselves have already done the launcher. somehow it does not fit with the fact that they are releasing for the fleet. if we could have done this pepelats would have shown. for the same wheeled self-propelled guns they blinded from everything in a row and boast.

      RCC on a 110-foot boat with a displacement of less than 200 tons? Except as side boosters ...
      The maximum that you can put on it is some kind of overcooled ATGM (like the Hellfire modification that they wanted to stick on the LCS).

          Is the Uranium anti-ship missile system the X-35 Harpoon? So there only one rocket weighs 620 kg.
          Plus TPK and PU. Plus a set of equipment. Plus reinforcements under the deck at the installation site at least PU.
          And now, after installing the anti-ship missile system on "Island", we get a nice object for diving. smile

          Uranium is an anti-ship missile system, which includes the X-35 missile. If you are talking about her, then there is a starting weight of about 650 kg, as far as I remember. Where did you get that 200?

    More than 30 patrol boats of the Island class are still on guard at the US Coast Guard today.
    Ukraine does not have ships of a similar class and will not have their own production in the near future.

      Coast Guard, this is not the Navy, it has different tasks. To catch a poacher, to drive small drug dealers, to catch illegal migrants. Ships of this class are not adapted for a full-fledged confrontation, even with a small guard, or a missile boat. Will be sunk in the second second of the battle.

        do they take them for battle?
        No, it’s just for these purposes that they performed the same functions in the USA in Ukraine.
        The fleet will not go bankrupt (new large ships) prefer to invest in missiles. Well, the little things.
        As for large ships, they will also refuse (Ukrainians themselves, as in the case of the Hornets), there is no way to service them. The World Cup pool is fairly well shot.

          If there is nothing else. In Ukraine, they are going to sink the Russian fleet from their inflatable boats. Proudly calling it the "mosquito fleet". And in general, the topic of any "development" in Ukraine of anything at all (except for corruption in the government and poverty among the people) is simply absurd in its essence. The complete degradation of everything, and in a geometric progression.

    According to official information, island-class boats have a displacement of 169 tons, a cruising range of 3300 nautical miles (more than 6100 kilometers), a maximum speed of 29,5 knots (almost 55 kilometers per hour), and autonomy for 5 days.
    Crew - 16 people (2 officers and 14 sailors and foremen).
    Armament - an automatic gun of 25 mm caliber and two machine guns of 12,7 mm caliber. Boats have a motor boat for inspection, landing and rescue operations.
