"Sumy" and "Fastov": boats from the USA have not been delivered to Ukraine yet, but Ukrainian names have already been assigned

36

Ukraine has not yet received a new batch of American Island-class boats, but it has already held a naming ceremony. This is despite the fact that these "Islands" did not have any names in the US Coast Guard - only an alphanumeric nomenclature.


The Ukrainian Embassy in the United States reports that two boats that Washington plans to transfer for the needs of the Ukrainian naval forces have been named Sumy and Fastov. These are the names of two cities. The first is a regional center near the Russian border. The second is located in the Kiev region and has about 44 thousand inhabitants.

The Ukrainian embassy in Washington reported that on February 23, at the base of the American Coast Guard in Baltimore, sea trials of the Island boat, which received the Ukrainian name "Sumy", were carried out. The boat was taken out into the open sea.

"Sumy" and "Fastov": boats from the USA have not been delivered to Ukraine yet, but Ukrainian names have already been assigned


From the report:

During the tests, the quality of the operation of the units and mechanisms of the boat was checked, and the test also affected the operability of its navigation system. The boat sailed part of the route at maximum speed to test engine functionality. All technical characteristics of the Island class boat have been confirmed.

The tests were carried out in the presence of the defense attaché of the Ukrainian embassy in the United States, Major General Boris Kremenetsky, and the naval attaché, Captain 1st Rank Sergei Fedorchuk.

From the report:

They spoke positively about the boat.

Still, they would have responded negatively about the decommissioned "Islands" ... Then the United States would clearly not understand such audacity.

We will remind that earlier two other boats of the same project were delivered to Ukraine, named as a result "Starobelsk" and "Slavyansk". This is called the implementation of a program to provide military-technical assistance to Ukraine. The boats are delivered unarmed.

      It's good that not Goethe's Faust ... We have pieces “stronger than Faust” (c) paraphrasing the well-known expression of Joseph Vissarionovich.

          As a child, I didn't think of it!
          My grandfather in the village had a homemade boat from a cell with a glued bottom. Something like this, made by my grandfather in the 70s.
          It was also necessary to give some terrible name. Like "Undaunted" or "Unstoppable" ... lol So that all the crucians in the river are afraid of me ...

      Just as one cannot give a name to an unborn child, so also give a name to an unborn ship.

    "Sumy" and "Fastov": boats from the USA have not been delivered to Ukraine yet, but Ukrainian names have already been assigned

    From already some of the members of the forum, the dad will rush to congratulate him on the reversal, with the fact that one of the boats was given the name "Fastov" ...

    But I was once passing through Fastov itself, at the Fastov and Fastov-2 stations. So-so town. They say about such people - "Two houses, one of them is a toilet", in the sense that it is not a posh and small town. If not for the railway, then in general, about nothing.

    And also, in the building of the Fastov railway station there is (was) a memorial plaque about the liberation of the city and the railway junction in 1943 from the Nazis.

    But who remembers this there now? The main boat ...

      . "Sumy" and "Fastov": boats from the USA have not been delivered to Ukraine yet, but the Ukrainian names have already been assigned

      The names should correspond to the content. The subordinate position of the country in front of foreign partners. It would be more logical to give the name "Fu we .." instead of "Sumy" to the Ukrainian subordinates, and instead of "Fastov" give the name "Fas".

    And I thought they would call Bandera or Shukhevych ...
    Or maybe Mazepa?
    Have the inflatable boats been given names?
    These boats will arrive and become the flagships of the Ukrainian Navy. Sahaidachny has already been declared incapable of combat.
    in general, that Poroshenko's "Forge" can tint and brew, then it will float with them, and corvettes, frigates and so on - never in life!
    So the boat fleet will be in / in Ukraine. Why do they need big ships.

    According to Ukrainian terminology, the boat is a corvette, at least, because they called the Sagaidachny frigate.
