"We will install modern weapons": Ukraine decided to modernize the boats supplied from the USA Island

50

In Ukraine, it was decided to modernize the decommissioned Island class boats received from the United States. Let us recall that at one time a real "epic" unfolded in the transfer of these boats to Kiev. The fact is that Island could not get to Ukraine from the United States on their own, by definition, and it was extremely expensive to transport them by other ships. As a result, everything that could be removed was removed from the boats, and more than a year after the agreement was concluded, they still ended up in Ukraine. Then Kiev presented it as "real support from the American partners."

Now the Ukrainian Navy was faced with the question of in what format the American used "Islands" to use. Having problems with which weapon must be placed on board. So far, as a "temporary solution", they have installed 25-mm cannons. It is these weapons that have appeared on the P190 "Slavyansk" and P191 "Starobelsk" for some time now.



Now, as it became known, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine has ordered the implementation of a project to re-equip American-made boats. The project provides for the installation of "modern weapons" on boats.

We will install modern weapons. We have at least three options.

There is no official talk about specific weapons options in Ukraine. However, according to experts, they will try to install missile weapons on the "Islands". As indicated, it can be effectively used on the high seas in high seas, since the boats have "decent seaworthiness."

      Installation of new weapons would have been impossible without a "holy visa-free".

        Once again you are convinced of how deep and accurate the popular wisdom is - "To whom is war, and to whom is a mother."
        Three options for arming small boats - yes, this is generally a klondike for individuals capable of "creativity" in this area.

          There are three options and not one is voiced. And I would like to hear - well, clean neighing))) because in Banderland, contractors stop coming to work, because of delays in salary.

            As one of the options, the most modern mortars "Hammer" will be installed lol
            You can also install tank turrets with guns.

              Tank towers disappear - they are very heavy. And there are no extra towers in the Banderland. Remember the joke about the lieutenant - the commander of a tank corps? But mortars are an idea. Not only land rats suffer from this "grave", even if the waterfowl will find out why the pound is dashing))))

      The funny thing is that not only the staff, who obviously are not in danger. But in the trenches and in the crew of those wishing to serve as cannon fodder in abundance.

        They do not need a war, but a PRECEDENT, so that later, as with the Kerch "breakthrough", they rush abroad and demand 10500 new sanctions and an extension of those already introduced.

      Any new weapons on these ships will not improve their armor or reduce radar visibility at sea. An artillery shell from a Russian ship will pierce the boat through and through, even if the Americans install a space laser weapon on it.

      Technically, there is no problem in installing 2-4 anti-ship missiles on boats, boats have sufficient displacement for this, no special radar is needed for target designation.
      The feasibility of converting patrol boats into missile boats is another matter.

      I do not wish good luck, the second article of the reserve is the commander of the hydroacoustics department of mine detection and communication stations of the KChF. It's a pity that we had to try on "boots", but Black Sea residents are never former)
      By the way, someone here gave the correct analysis to the minesweepers being bought in England. I fully support this assessment, ships of very different classes.

      "We'll install modern weapons. We have at least three options." (c) I suggest the fourth. You order laser pointers on AliExpress, bundle them into beams and install them on turrets. And that's all. Laser weapons are ready for battle. There is nowhere more modern.
