    seem to be tired of waiting ... Corvette 5,5 years built request too much recourseOn the one hand, the choice of weapons, it develops so quickly, it seems that I decided on it and hammered into the project, but here the development is even cooler. Yesterday the "calibers" were touched, today it is supersonic, in all versions.

    Well, good luck!
    The navy has been waiting for truly modern mine action ships ...
    A corvette is not a destroyer, and the Pacific Fleet is not a BF, but I am sincerely happy with this replenishment. Pacific sailors have a hard time competing with their neighbors' fleets, so every ship is worth its weight in gold.
