Two American boats of the type "Island" officially became part of the Ukrainian Navy

American patrol boats of the type "Island" today became part of the Naval Forces of Ukraine. The ceremony was held in Odessa in the presence of NATO representative Joseph Pennington, Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine Anatoly Petrenko, representatives of the local administration, etc. This was announced by the deputy of the Odessa mayor Andrei Kotlyar.


Today, at the invitation of the Commander of the Naval Forces of Ukraine Igor Voronchenko, he took part in the ceremonial inclusion of patrol boats "Slavyansk", "Starobelsk" and the search and rescue vessel "Alexander Okhrimenko" in the Navy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

- Kotlyar wrote on his Facebook page.

Joseph Pennington, US Chargé d'Affaires in Ukraine, who spoke at the ceremony, promised that soon the United States would hand over three more decommissioned boats of the same type to Ukraine, although earlier it had been reported everywhere that the Navy was counting on four.

As previously reported in the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, the boats arrived at the port of Odessa on October 21 on board the American container ship Ocean Freedom and, after unloading the 23 on October, were delivered to a military pier in the port of Odessa, where, under the guidance of foreign experts, the crews of the boats prepared them for operation.

On November 10 the P191 Starobelsk and the P190 Slavyansk conducted sea trials in the Black Sea.

As stated in the Navy, the boats will soon receive weapons. In particular, we are talking about installing the Katran-M combat module (BM-5M01), equipped with: 30-mm automatic gun ZTM-1, 30-mm automatic grenade launcher KBA-117, 7,62-mm machine gun KT-7,62 and 2 and 25 and 30 Barrier". It is possible that on the “Islands” the following will be installed: for detecting targets at a distance of up to 3 km at an altitude of XNUMX km, a two-coordinate coherent-pulse circular radar - Delta-M and Arbalet-K SAM from Luch Design Bureau . They can also be equipped with Neptune anti-ship missiles.

    Again, the decommissioned boats by the Americans hit Ukraine. So it’s easier than scrapping it.

      The most important thing is that the oars are included in the set of rescue equipment.

        Actually, it’s a normal global trend. To improve accuracy. And, really effective, so barracks humor is slightly inappropriate ...

    if there are really understanding people, please comment. The Ukrainian Navy is discussing the possibility of installing on the boat data a promising anti-ship missile system "Neptune" which is designed to destroy ships with a displacement of up to 5000 tons, as well as ground targets.

    But the sailors didn’t have good sailors? What kind of porn ykh on the first flag rise ???
    And as I understand it, they have one wide strip on the guis. What she means is interesting.
    And some kind of strange ceremony. Sailors only carry the flag on board, and some guards in camouflage are already on board in a crowd.

    Island-type boats and a rescue vessel solemnly accepted into the Navy: Americans promise three more units

    The rescue ship Alexander Okhrimenko, as well as the Slavyansk and Starobelsk boats of the Island type transferred to the United States, were included in the Navy.

    The solemn ceremony of raising the naval flag of Ukraine on them took place today in the Practical Harbor of the Odessa port, the Duma correspondent reports.




    Neither the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky, nor the Minister of Defense Andrei Zagorodniuk arrived in Odessa. Instead, ships were received by Deputy Minister for European Integration Anatoly Petrenko and Navy Commander Admiral Igor Voronchenko. Also present were the former head of the SBU, the Minister of Defense and Prime Minister Yevgeny Marchuk, the former chief of the main headquarters of the Navy Admiral Igor Kabanenko, the US military and diplomats.

    Representatives of the US Coast Guard, who trained the Ukrainian crews of the "Islands", received badges "For Merit to the Armed Forces of Ukraine", and the commander of the rescue ship "Alexander Okhrimenko" Anatoly Lyulko - epaulettes of the captain of the second rank.

    US Chargé d'Affaires to Ukraine Joseph Pennington said that over the past five years, US aid to Ukraine has amounted to $ 1 billion 600 million. In addition to these two boats, agreements were reached on the delivery of three more ships of the Island type. These will be USCGC Ocracoke (WPB-1307), USCGC Washington (WPB-1331) and USCGC Kiska (WPB-1336).

    In turn, the deputy defense minister said that before the end of this year, the Ukrainian Navy will receive three more warships from the "national manufacturer." We are talking about another small armored boat type "Gyurza-M" and two landing assault boats of the type "Centaur". These units are already in Odessa and are being tested.
