          In fact, this is on all ships
          I recommend that you find pictures of the latest Amer destroyer there all the same.
          Now there is no need for thick armor.

          the inevitable deformation of the metal when welding to structural elements, with a thicker metal, for large vessels that unfortunately do not already build, is not so noticeable

      “Why did you set the submarine on fire?”
      - Yes, somehow it got everything ...

      "Casey James Fury, 24 years old, admitted that he set fire to the US nuclear submarine USS Miami on June 16, 2012, at the Portsmouth, Maine shipyard, because he was too lazy to go to work.
      Since the United States is the most humane country in the world, the arsonist faces one or two life sentences, after serving and completely repenting, Casey James will again be able to return to the work he hates so much. "

        You write nonsense. Look who you yourself are, what you wrote before, what are you lying? When you wrote provocation, when you wrote, you have to kill the Azerbaijanis and give the lands to the Armenians, when you almost humiliated others. So do not drive !!!


        You are not Russian, but an enemy of Russians. A real Russian man will respect his neighbors, remember the USSR, and you, with your aerodynamic head, deceitfully roll your non-essential policy on the site administration.

        You are a fascist and a real one. Nazi. You are persecuting Russia here ... I respect Russia and respect Russian guys, I do not respect politics at certain points in relation to my people. And you are a fascist. Do you know why you are a fascist and a Nazi? Because you were not outside your yard, if you were in different countries, you would see people and understand that there is no bad nation, there are bad people.

        Quote: Prophet Alyosha

        Everyone has the right to minus or plus. So you're off topic. Although I did not touch you !!! I am responsible for my words !!!

        Quote: Prophet Alyosha

        IF SOMETHING offended you mates in PM, he became the same as you, a fascist and a Nazi. You show a screen of mail to administrators, and those will be punished, just don’t shout about what threaten you. WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE? Where are the facts?

          A colleague, when the same post goes from branch to branch, this may have, in my opinion, two reasons - This is either stunning news, the joy of which you want to share with many, or a targeted company to discredit any event or person . In this case, the signs of the second can be traced, and this does not paint either you or the site, but creates a provocative precedent .. The request to continue to avoid such attacks, especially since the prophet Alyosha has, in addition to opponents and supporters.

      if this ship was called a missile cruiser, then I would agree with you, but it’s directly called SMALL ARTILLERY SHIP and fully performs the tasks assigned to him

      ps although it’s more like a boat)

    Soon there will be so much armament in the Caspian that everyone will get seriously. I kept wondering why they were arming themselves, against whom. Seeing what they are buying, seeing who and to whom they are selling, there is only one conclusion, against Iran.
