US State Department: American Island-class boats will strengthen the potential of the Ukrainian Navy in the Black Sea

51

The naval forces of Ukraine will soon be replenished with two more Island-class patrol boats. This was reported in the US State Department.


The State Department spokesman said that the delivery of two American Island class boats will strengthen the potential of the Ukrainian Navy in the Black Sea. Speaking about the delivery time, he noted that the boats will have to be handed over before the end of "this month", ie. May. How they will be delivered to Odessa and other details of the planned delivery are not given.

The only question that arises after the statement of the State Department is why we are talking about two boats, although Ukraine previously announced three. According to Ukrainian media, the Americans are to transfer three former US Coast Guard boats to the Navy: USCGC Ocracoke (WPB-1307), Washington (WPB-1331) and Kiska (WPB-1336). Perhaps the third boat will be delivered separately.

In Kiev, the boats are eagerly awaited, for them crews trained in the United States have already been prepared. The new boats will be based along with the already received P190 "Slavyansk" and P191 "Starobelsk" in the port "Yuzhny". In the future, a division of boats will be created there.

New boats, again according to information from the Ukrainian press, will come to Ukraine with installed weapons and equipment, unlike the first two. Earlier it was announced that the P190 "Slavyansk" and the P191 "Starobelsk" will also receive American weapons.

        For the "freebie", however, you will have to pay (de-preservation, pre-sale preparation with service, crew training and subsequent maintenance). The previous ones cost 10 lemons of greenery. Instead of disposal costs, the Yankes cut down money for them! This is how to worry about your own budget !!! Handsome men! laughing But the Ukrainians licked the owners with relish. But they could have paid the same money to their caterers ... laughing

      The coup happened in the city of Kakhovka,
      The coup took place in Enta's head:
      The new manager of Dompromtrest has arrived
      And our Enta does not find a place.
      Ivan Ivanovich is tall, black-browed,
      So beautiful and looking almost healthy
      And the boots on him are "chevron",
      And his boots are almost new.

    I remembered the joke: On the exam, the teacher: - What is a potentiometer? Student (swimming): - This is ... such a measuring device. - And what, I wonder, does he measure? Probably potency? - Yes. - Tell us how it works. - Well, he has a scale ... - What does it show? - Deviation from the vertical.

    So in Ukraine, the word "potential" is a vertical deviation! If these troughs will strengthen something, then only someone's names are on the Forbes list! laughing

      Exclusively for a long maritime border, which neither Georgia nor Ukraine has.
      The USA built 49 of them. exclusively for yourself. And when the time came for their modernization, it turned out that there was no point in terms of financial costs. We decided to sell them to the "allies" by giving them loans.
      So 2 pcs. they were "sold" to Georgia in 2016, to Pakistan - 2 pcs, the turn came to Ukraine. And for Ukraine they are now like "cruisers" against Russia. Poproshenko and Ze, openly PR in front of the owner, turning Ukraine into "95 quarter". It is funny and painful to look at the former Ukrainian SSR.
