The naval forces of Ukraine in the near future will receive two patrol-type Island, transferred by the Americans. According to the press service of the naval forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, a cargo ship carrying boats has finally arrived in Odessa.


The cargo ship Ocean Grand entered the commercial port of Odessa, delivering two boats from Baltimore, USA. After all the necessary procedures and unloading, the boats will be towed to the place of their future basing, where they will be prepared for further operation.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Naval Forces of Ukraine Alexei Neizhpapa reacted to the arrival of the boats, expressing "deep gratitude" to the United States from Ukraine. According to him, American partners are helping Ukraine resist "Russian aggression" and defend democratic values ​​and "transatlantic security."

It is emphasized that the boats will ensure safety in the Black and Azov Seas.

According to preliminary information, the new boats "Sumy" and "Fastov" will be based in the port "Yuzhny". It is planned to create a division there, which will include five boats: "Slavyansk" and "Starobelsk", "Sumy" and "Fastov" and "Vyacheslav Kubrak", which is still in Baltimore.

It is noted that the new boats have received "American weapons." Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine announced the installation of combat modules with 30-mm automatic cannons.

      In 2002-2005, the United States tried to modernize some of them, but all eight boats that underwent changes had to be written off due to problems with the strength of the hulls.

      The rest, which did not have time to modernize, were given out to their vassals. For recycling will become more expensive, and then there are traders selling spare parts

        They could have turned to the Estonians, there in Saaremaa the guys learned to rivet boats, and no worse than the American scrap metal.

          The smaller the "piece", the louder the name. I have not seen such names on either supertankers or American aircraft carriers. But the Sumerian boats are quite common.

      That is why not a single country, not only in Europe but even in Africa, does not boast of its fleet, but here they received two scrap metal boats, and the noise to the whole world is "Peremogaaa!"

    You can immediately see the true "friends" of Ukraine, decommissioned boats, "Javelins", military advisers and other crap, but the question is, why don't your friends care about investing in the Ukrainian economy and raising the living standards of Ukrainians? Where are the soft loans, where are the creation of joint companies in the territory of the independent, where are the supplies of cheap energy resources and other infusions into the economy?

    And what to do with them now? There is no money, no economy, as many as 70 thousand marauders fled from the army. This mini-fleet of mini-boats must be maintained. It is necessary to paint, they eat diesel fuel, again. They'll sell it to Ethiopians, you'll see.

      Nobody noticed that the sediment is not from boats

      Boats there are generally "passing cargo". No one will drive such a ship across the ocean for the sake of two boats, then the transportation of the boat will cost at the price of gold. I have worked on similar ships, there can be anything in the holds. From containers to wheeled - tracked vehicles ... And the steamer does not sit deeply, it is still far from the load line ... In general, a normal chief officer will never put a container on the deck if there is room for it in the hold, or will only put an empty one. This means that the holds are completely filled if there is no room for containers ... Most likely, he also has containers in his holds.

    As far as I understand, the entire Naval Forces of Ukraine barely pulls on the brigade. Where do so many "admirals" come from? If there are navy officers, they can tell me if I'm wrong ...

      So there are already six dozen more rubber boats! Here you can safely add a dozen more. In fact, for all the "independence" of the ships of the "level" of the admiral was not at all. The commander of such a ship is at most a starley, and often a midshipman (warrant officer).

    My gratitude will be limitless, within reason. So I wonder how much they reasonably paid for this decommissioned antiques?
    Why am I so, antiques are infinitely expensive. laughing laughing laughing

    It is one thing to service boats of the USSR and Ukrainian construction, and another thing to boats from the USA. It should be borne in mind that even Americans recognize these boats as too expensive to maintain. So the end of the boats is not far off ........... ......

    I think that any reinforcement at the border cannot be the subject of jokes.
    Because it (strengthening) means possible confrontation and murder.
