      They basically all of these
      strings, rags, dance girls.
      forced to transfer technology.
      I believe that we, too, took something from Iveco, Mistral, and all foreign satellite components.

        Samples are not the same as technology, even if you grind a millimeter with a file.

        and all sorts of foreign component satellites also took something
        In its pure form, the purchase, as with Nicky II.

      I wonder how electronic engineers "linked" this whole "hodgepodge" into a single whole? Or do all types of weapons function independently?

    Good ships by the way. 3300 tons with a helicopter, good Bugas Atlas. And all the happiness for $ 250 million.

      For a quarter of lard green, somehow it will not be enough. Moreover, the ship is already serial.

    I would say too much. Imported equipment lifted up the price. There is only the necessary. No one is trying to cram the unbearable. We took the correct displacement and a minimum of necessary equipment. Invested only in everything you need. Of course, there is no stabilization system, like the French Faye, to take a helicopter up to 6 points, but it’s not so bad either.

    too big for a corvette
    and weakly armed for 3500 tons
    The French in this displacement and at almost the same cost, the full-fledged frigates of Formidebl were able to do

      Well, they classified it as a corvette, not by tonnage, but by armament, all honestly, "Stretch out legs for clothes too." )))

    Again, a bunch of classes and series are falling into a heap, but how to compare with other corvettes? Falcons? Classmates no longer write!
