The agreement, worth $ 19,969 million, provides for the preparation of the start of construction of the first two high-speed patrol boats Mk VI with the subsequent delivery of the Ukrainian Navy. The boats are due to be completed by December 2022. The transfer must take place under the US Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program of intergovernmental foreign military sales.

In total, the US Department of Defense Agency for Military Cooperation plans to sell 16 Mk VI boats to Ukraine, totaling $ 600 million, including crew training and technical support. The first six US boats will be handed over to the Ukrainian Navy as assistance, the remaining ten will be bought by Kiev at its own expense. At the same time, it is specified that the delivery of the first two boats will be financed within the framework of the military aid allocated to Ukraine.

In addition to 16 boats, the United States will supply them with weapons: 32 MSI Seahawk A2 remote-controlled artillery mounts (two per boat) with 30-mm Mk 44 Bushmaster II automatic cannons and other equipment.

The total displacement of the boat is 72 tons, length 25,8 m, width 6,2 m and draft 1,2 m. Max. speed - 45 knots. The cruising range is 690 miles at a speed of 30 knots. The crew of the boat is 10-11 people + a possible landing of 7-8 people.

In the standard version, the boat is armed with two 25-mm automatic remote-controlled Mk 38 Mod 2 mounts and six 12,7-mm M2 machine guns on turret mounts.

Against this background, information appeared that the US authorities are considering the possibility of installing on the Mark VI patrol boats, which will be transferred to Ukraine, short-range missile systems, that is, small anti-ship missiles of the BGM-176V Griffin type.

The Commander of the Ukrainian Navy, Rear Admiral Oleksiy Neizhpapa, has already announced that a division of such boats will be deployed in the Sea of ​​Azov.

      The United States, Britain and Turkey are arming Ukraine to prepare it for war with Russia.
      All statements by representatives of the Ukrainian command regarding control over the Black Sea must be taken seriously.
      The capabilities of the Ukrainian military-industrial complex in arming the army and navy are negligible, but the West is ready to come to Ukraine to help in the fight against the "Russian threat".

      “Ukraine has already received modern anti-tank missile systems from the United States and will receive combat boats in the near future. Great Britain is also zealous, supplying combat units to the Navy. Of particular note is Turkey, from which the drones come.
      Four missile corvettes with helicopters on board will be built according to Turkish templates, and they will be delivered in the coming years. "

          The fact that Georgia will rock the boat to fight with Russia - no one thought in 2008 either. It ended with chewing a tie, a call to the State Department, and the comment, "Deal with yourself." And there were hopes ... fellow "We will only bite Russia on the heel, and then NATO KAAAAAAK WILL PUMP .... It never happened and never will.
          Now the Nazis in Ukraine will be given automatics and some unpretentious rackets and they will say "Fas!" And they will go, and they will get snot, and we will not reach 60 kilometers to Kuev, and the whole world will choke with saliva, as "aggressive Russia attacked free Ukraine" ...

          We saw this scenario already in 2008. A new one to invent in Langley no brains? It means that they are wasting their good salary .... Give it to me, I will tell you. Although it is useless ...

          I hope that the person who said this has enough attitude towards the military sphere to understand:
          - it is possible to create tension in the region with loud provocations with the help of boats, drones, as well as other disposable shnyagi;
          - it is quite possible for oneself to maintain a military conflict of low / medium intensity and completely politically and economically isolate the "aggressor" from the world;
          - the above conflict, naturally, will end in defeat 404, but its political results may become identical to the results of the "Winter War".

            It's over enough. It is also possible to create tension in the region with loud provocations with what Ukraine now has. You don't need boats and drones for this. They have enough for provocations, their curators would need, they would have done it long ago, and then politically and economically isolated. You don't need a damn boat for that.
            And British, French, American boats are just the usual sale of weapons to the natives and the loading of their industries. Nothing more. The same sale of javelins, at a price twice as much as they are usually exported, is a story like this.
            In general, they did not describe everything convincingly. I did not see a person here who is related to the military sphere, but only a person who attaches great importance to all sorts of nonsense.

            UAVs are a big problem for LDNR. It is even pointless to argue here. But only if someone only expresses deep concern. Everything related to boats and corvettes is just one big cut

              And yes, there is no need here about the belonging or absence of the participants in the discussion to the military sphere. Especially if you consider the 404 forces and means to be sufficient for organizing a sustainable regional conflict. There are not only parasites with nicknames, there are people and consultants who have made the right conclusions from the land and sea.

                What have I got to do with it? These are questions for the leadership. Hopefully the right conclusions have been drawn. At least the rearmament began after these events. Identified vulnerabilities in the form of weak intelligence gathering, etc.

                And if in Ukraine there is still no full monitoring of the movement of all forces, their places of basing, the location of warehouses, the introduction of agents into the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, etc., and plans for their destruction are not developed, then those who are responsible for this with rags should be driven out. Here I agree 100%

Yes, they disarm, instead of so many funds, you can buy a bunch of ATGMs or drones .. all the more, what kind of ukrov fleet can pose a real threat to us, 10 boats with machine guns, even if they are 10 million dollars each? even if with 2 theoretical corvettes? why are you so belittling the Russian Black Sea Fleet, saying that boats with kulemets are a threat to him?

        The former are at the expense of the allocated money, and the rest are at the expense of Ukraine, so the former are cheaper, and the next ...

        The first six Mk VI patrol boats will be supplied to Ukraine at the expense of American military aid, and the remaining ten will have to be paid by Ukraine from its own resources.

We have Thales (French) thermal imagers on tanks, and the sights are pine from Belarus. In the Raptor boat, in general, almost everything is imported. On the Su-30cm ILS from Thales. Specialists from the SSO have a lot of imported items or equipment for combat swimmers. Inspector Mk 2 unmanned boats and Seascan Mk2 autonomous underwater vehicles for project 12700 minesweepers.

      The list of steamships of the Black Sea Fleet, capable of operating in the shallow Azov - in the studio.
      Boats are positioned as patrol boats = along and along the coast.
      Disembarkation / selection of a group, its fire cover, defeat of coastal targets.
      I do not know how long it will take to build / transfer / commission, but ideally a "gang" of 16 high-speed targets (roughly 150 dugs in the landing party) is able to "extinguish" 5 POGZ in the current state (this is a "hole" in 200 km. 250 on the front of GG). With the ensuing consequences.

          You shouldn't have hung this “footcloth” (“DIP” series). The above boats are a thin layer of butter on a piece of bread. Of the entire list, only 10 units can work out (speed and nominal) on American-Ukrainian steamships (which are also smeared to cover the Psk in accordance with the OGG plan for a period that is revealed as "two fingers").
          The sides of the former PV aviation now have the "gray jackets" in their pockets and are usually painted in the same way (God forbid, the head of the 1st department does not scratch the application - the end of his career).
          Unscheduled disruption of the sides to participate in the search = formation of a hole (it can be patched up by other means, but annoying).
          It was about the water area of ​​the Sea of ​​Azov, where the concentration of the declared 16 units (provided that they are still built and receive URKs on board) is an extremely unpleasant thing.

            Only Sable 11 units, Sokzhoy 2 units, Mongoose more than 15. This is quite enough for revealing intentions, and then ... as you write - "like two fingers."

            Remind how long were raised
            Ka-52 and Su-30SM, with the last provocation?

            I will note your thoughts about an extremely unpleasant thing: the first two Marks will be available only by 2023, by 24-25, 4 more, and the remaining ones, when the Ukrainians find money ... if you look at # 12150-217, they were built in 220 years ..

              The funds you listed work "offshore" and "reveal intentions" lol can not. So you need to be careful with terminology.
              On the Kerch "battle":
              - the event (the active part - the contact of the parties in any form) lasted more than a day, not counting the time of escorting Ukrainian ships along the South Coast by PTNs. During this time it was possible to overtake from the Corner board.
              - non-Krasnoarmeyskie aircrafts / airplanes appeared in the area 9 hours after the NGG reported to the FSB PS that it would violate the GG.
              There is a significant difference between "violation", "breakthrough", "incident" and "withdrawal to adjacent territory."
              The first, second and third can be separate elements of the fourth (if in the task you get / provoke a conflict with the ensuing ones).
              "Mongoose" with CPV against AU and URka (in the future for the Ukrainians) = to crush hedgehogs with bare ass.

                Reconnaissance allows revealing intentions, including through observation, which we are talking about: - observation of the enemy's actions. Including the forces and means of the security guard of Russia.

                So be careful in terms lol

                Reconnaissance in combat examples. - Moscow: Military Publishing, 1972 .-- 312 pp. / Simonyan R.G., Grishin S.V., Nikolaev N.S., Tumas V.A.From the list of literature recommended for study before lectures at the Academy

                Example 37.
                The observation revealed the enemy's preparation for the offensive.
                ...... At the beginning of September 1942, after stubborn offensive battles, our rifle division went over to the defensive on a 5-kilometer front at the Zaluchye-Dubki line (Fig. 10). The division organized a fire system, improved engineering defense and conducted reconnaissance.
                When organizing observation, the division's intelligence chief assumed that the enemy, in case of preparing [162] an offensive ....... With all the personnel involved in reconnaissance by observation, classes were held in which the principles and methods of observation were studied ...

                    There is no need to describe a pattern of actions, the conversation is about something else.

                    We started with your statement:
                    Disembarkation / selection of a group, its fire cover, defeat of coastal targets.

                    And that there is no one to work for these goals, which will lead to:
                    it is able to "extinguish" 5 POGZ in the current state (this is a "hole" in 200-250 km along the GG front). With the ensuing consequences.


                    I say that there is someone to track and escort them in the current and near-term situation until mid-23 (while there will be two or 4 units) - and there is someone to work them out. In the event of a situation when there are 16 ...
                    Are you sure that the composition of the current group will not change? "Gray jackets" know how to think, even though because they swallowed the border guards, you clearly do not like them.

                    who is thicker

                    no outposts will be repaid, this is a different alignment and a completely different answer.
                    I wrote about this above, no one will send PSKA to shoot with PSKA.


                    By the way, did you pay attention to the ratio of PSKR to PSKA in the above table for this region? What do you think?

                    P.S:

                      Described (in an extremely simplified way) the "military" element of the OGG (thanks to separate "personalities", the OGG method is "operational-military" and the troops, let's say, are demilitarized and brought into the state of "employment bureau", which cannot but affect the solution of tasks).
                      Departments (former Pogz) and Departments (commandant's offices), for objective reasons, cannot protect themselves when small groups act on their PPD (an element of ensuring the input of "guests").
                      The operational component, alas, due to the interests of the "big brother" is sharpened for a heap of other tasks. And it cannot provide "opening" of preparations from the adjacent one.
                      I will not even write in a simplified way the organization of entering / receiving from us.
                      About shots between steamers - when choosing between a knife and a pistol, I would choose a pistol.
                      On the Black Sea-Azov section, we have a length of roughly 2500 km along the coast and about 15 sea posts (ports) with active traffic of both small size and sea transport.
                      SBHR funds are saturated with those areas where the probability or conditions are more conducive to NGH or NDT.
                      Then (roughly) to provide 40-50 "branches" and 15 checkpoints / pp the available number of PSKR / PSKA / patrol steamers and galleys is not enough (even if all steamers are simultaneously pushed into service).
                      The attitude to the "gray jackets" who worked "on the ground" is normal. To a young "tribe" - negative, as well as to "happy people". This is subjective, but what to do. smile

          It is necessary to load the guns only before going to sea, and it is clearly not the boat commander and not the diesel operator who should aim at the target and fire from them, but the operator of this system, there are two of them and sit in front of the monitors where information from the sights is displayed constantly, that is, probably there are also replacement crew members. Here are 4 or 6 people serving only these guns, and the rest are the commander, chief officer and diesel operator. Apart from the landing.

      There are no problems with the remote control of the MSI Seahawk A2 installation - the platform of the weapon is gyro-stabilized.
      a single cannon naval mount that is gyro stabilized, electrically operated and self contained gun mounting featuring a choice of cannon, control mode and sights.

          Small-caliber cannons in the sea are not very effective because of the wind - a light shell deviates strongly, and there is always wind in the sea. Almost always. It turns out to effectively shoot well for a mile, for a mile and a half. Further - not. Everything flies to hell.
          This is not for you to shoot with a 6-kilogram cucumber from a three-inch bag, it's another matter entirely.

    In my opinion, such boats for Ukraine are like for a beggar Mercedes, at first it's cool and fun, and then the car is idle because there is no money for repairs and spare parts.

    The same thing happened with Georgia, they gave them missile boats, and by the 2008 war they could not go to sea.

    The more the Maidan government of Ukraine spends on the navy, the less will remain for the ground forces, and it is suicide for them to fight with us, so they will not go to that.

    But the boats are certainly not bad, they can arrange some kind of provocation, like that attempt to break through under the Kerch bridge.

    Somehow, the Ukrainian Navy is gaining momentum for re-equipment. First, two Island-class patrol boats, now they must supply 16 Mark VI patrol boats, the British are to receive five large Q 04 Barzan missile boats.
    All this is understandable, the question is rather that the maintenance of the fleet is really big money. They cannot support their own fleet, but here everything is imported, from cartridges and spare parts, to banal fuels and lubricants, this technique will not work on coal. Or, as usual, they will hope that the USA will pay for everything?

      Colleague, clarification - not the classic "Barzan", but something based on, in accordance with the "Wishlist" of the Ukrainian Navy + "French" on the way

    Yes, these boats and griffens are small things, we have calibers and zircons.
    Throw me pluses laughing
    But seriously, in five years, the Naval Forces of Ukraine + the ground component will pose a serious threat in the Azov-Black Sea region

    In total, the US Department of Defense Agency for Military Cooperation plans to sell 16 Mk VI boats to Ukraine, totaling $ 600 million, including crew training and technical support. The first six US boats will be handed over to the Ukrainian Navy as assistance, the remaining ten will be bought by Kiev at its own expense. At the same time, it is specified that the delivery of the first two boats will be financed within the framework of the military aid allocated to Ukraine.


    it is probably worth recalling that in 2021 the United States will allocate only $ 250 million to Ukraine as assistance. Since the first six boats will be paid from this amount and their cost will be $ 225 million, then $ 25 million will remain from assistance to Ukraine. At the same time, Ukraine itself will have to scrape up Somewhere around $ 350 million for the purchase, don't understand why, because apart from Ukraine, despite the fact that the boat has been produced since 2015, no country in the world has dared to buy it so far.
    It is especially embarrassing that the crew of this boat is more than it can take passengers (crew of 10 people + 8 passengers).

    In the standard version, the boat is armed with two 25-mm automatic remote-controlled Mk 38 Mod 2 mounts and six 12,7-mm M2 machine guns on turret mounts.


    a bit of a mistake crept in. For the armament of this boat is variable, but you can simply choose one of the options presented;

    1) two 25-mm automatic remotely controlled installations Mk 38 Mod 2
    2) six 12,7 mm M2 machine guns on turret mounts.
    3) 40-mm automatic grenade launchers Mk 19
    4) installation of guided missiles such as BGM-176B Griffin

    you cannot choose more than one option.

      Griffin must be chosen. The blind can see this.

        And what to look at. There are 6 mounting places (and the Mk 38 Mod 2 installation can be installed one at the bow and aft in strictly defined places). Or two 25-mm automatic remote-controlled Mk 38 Mod 2 installations and four turrets for 12,7 mm M2 machine guns or only six turrets for machine guns. As for the picture at the beginning, you can see only one Mk 38 Mod 2 installation and two 12,7 mm M2 machine guns on the turrets.

            the bundle that the Americans put themselves and the bundle that they sell completely different things. The same foreign Wikipedia writes something or that or another.
            For me, it is more profitable for the Americans to sell a complete set in the form of two automatic 25-mm artillery mounts BAE Systems "Rafael Mk 38 Mod 2" and thereby hooking the Ukrainians on the purchase of ammunition and spare parts for these installations, especially since for a potential enemy in the event of the capture of boats such installations are not of interest.

    It is unlikely that American and British boats in the service of the Ukrainian Navy will be able to pose a serious threat to our Black Sea Fleet or communications in the Azov and Black Seas, the United States allocates money to Ukraine for the purchase of American weapons, i.e. the Americans will return their own money to themselves, plus they will load their factories with orders for the Ukrainian Navy, the Yankees, British, Turks and others are competently solving the commercial problem of long-term implantation of the Ukrainian armed forces into their armaments, expanding the markets for their weapons systems

    The Commander of the Ukrainian Navy, Rear Admiral Oleksiy Neizhpapa, has already announced that a division of such boats will be deployed in the Sea of ​​Azov.

    2 mechanics there why? To throw coal into the furnace?
    There are no mechanics at all on modern boats. What for mechanics when everything is automated. You can get into the car there. Mechanics must meet him on the shore.

    Even if it is modern, no one has eliminated the need to monitor motors and various systems. If something breaks down and is easily removed with the spare parts available, someone has to replace it and continue sailing.
