        Yes, I know. I like it more, in Albany. Okay, let's write in Russian. The cruiser was handed over to the performer. At the end of August, the cruiser will be placed on the PD-41 dock slip, after which preparations will begin for dismantling the superstructure. The bow should be disassembled in May 2024, the stern - in November of the same year. In general, the disposal works should take place in 12 stages and last until December 30, 2025. The cruiser will be brought into the floating dock twice, the first time to dismantle the bulb.
        The Soviet Pacific Fleet has almost finished.

          And you read about the Albanese language first, hehe. And the good news for the cruiser. And if from there he drowned at the pier? Everything went to this! And so this radioactive legacy is being disposed of.

    Armament like a British aircraft carrier. Although no, Rook's machine gun will be more powerful - not 12.7, but 14.5.

    I really do not like the MTPU machine-gun mount. How can you shoot while standing, and even in conditions of sea rolling?
    After all, they made installations for seated shooting before.

      Standing just when rolling, it is more convenient to shoot than sitting. It's still a boat, not a ship.

        Sergey Aleksandrovich April 30 2021 15: 05
        Standing to shoot could not be more convenient, so there is an additional instability of the shooter relative to the machine gun, the emphasis in the lower back of course compensates somewhat, but no more. And while sitting, the shooter is already united with the machine gun and does not have to control his own stability.
        It's like in children's books on physics they give an example of writing in motion, when the hand is pulled with a strap to a small board with a sheet of paper.

      21 century. For a long time they have been making machine-gun and cannon installations with stabilization and multi-mode optics, where the shooter drives the joystick in a comfortable chair inside the ship. Only the Navy still prefers to shoot at a mechanical sight.
      I think efficiency, safety for l / s, excitement tolerances yourself can estimate this

      and this

        And the frankly "no" cruising range is also embarrassing: 200 miles. Overland - 370 km. Smaller than a passenger car. The harbor tug has, I suppose, even more ..
