      Compare better the armament of this Italian frigate with the armament of the Russian. This FREMM as a frigate only belly (read "displacement") came out, the rest is comparable with our corvettes.

      People are building! recourse Although for Italy, perhaps, it is more promising to develop a civilian fleet for tourism and passenger traffic. what And then migrants from Africa to Italy have to sail in boats. wink

        Beautiful, as always, Italians built! You can recall the leader of Tashkent, according to their project. Handsome, died as a fighter. Glory to our sailors and Italian designers too!

    In the year 14 they told how Saturn easily and simply imported turbines. It didn’t work out easily, but the test bench was built, the turbines seemed to have learned. But reports about the state of the plant making manual gearboxes on the knee one by one for 2 -3 years, as it were, says that there is no rational approach, where thinly nothing changes there. The situation is similar with Kolomensky diesels, they make it extremely slowly, and even outdated models.

      But sanctions were oh how predictable and nothing was done until the age of 14 to prevent the harmful effects of Western sanctions

        How predictable? Quite the contrary, no one expected such a response from the West to events in the Crimea. At first, Putin explained to everyone in the West that, you say, you took the territory from the Serbs, we did the same thing, only you took your territory back. They explained the difference to him and imposed sanctions.

          What does the same mean? There was no referendum in Kosovo, as in the Crimea.

    Practically, a full-fledged destroyer in terms of displacement and dimensions. But the weapons are weak ... There is no offensive. Maybe that is not known?

    That is the great maritime power of Italy, and already a dozen frigates will be equal to the project 22350 in terms of displacement.

        Of course, great about Italy is a joke. And about Columbus in the course. But about shipbuilding here it’s worth learning
