    What. Maybe they will finally finish their completion. They dragged on for a long time. Perhaps they were still waiting for the refinement of zircons. That's probably why it took so long.

      They were waiting for domestic power plants. Now they're gone. And that means the ships will go.

    The frigate is named after Arseny Grigoryevich Golovko (1906 - 1962), a sailor - surface officer

    Personally, I do not know all of our naval commanders, but this is how historical figures are remembered. +1 for this author.

      Looks like we'll never get out. Severnaya Verf, under an agreement with the RF Ministry of Defense, is solely building frigates 22350 for the Navy. At the same time, it has only 8 slipways. At the same time, corvettes are being built (periodically setting them on fire) and Daring Mercury. There are simply no stocks for new bookmarks. In terms of the pace and quality of construction of corvettes, the Far East have already bypassed the St. Petersburg. But the lobby, the lobby...

    It would be necessary on Yantar and maybe in Zelenodolsk to establish the production of these cars, they are very necessary for the fleet. And increase the production of gas turbines.

      Zelenodolsk is not able to build ships with such a large displacement, yes, Karakurt can be built in Zelenodolsk

    Sorry, but if someone is deep in the topic. Can you answer this question. Purely theoretically, it would not be better and more useful to completely abandon the 20380 (385) corvettes, and lay down a large series of modified 22350s (in the 32 UVP version), it is clear that at first there will be problems (engine production again needs to be adjusted), but maybe more it would be possible to increase the series and rates and reduce the price. Plus, 22350 is a full-fledged ship of the first rank (well, in terms of capabilities, anyway), it can absolutely everything that 20380 can do, but anti-submarine, strike and air defense capabilities are on a completely different level, in addition, it can work perfectly in the far zone. If we had, for example, 20 such ships (10 each for the Northern and Pacific), well, or 16, then the fleet would clearly look advantageous. You can protect the SSBNs, work together with, for example, Nakhimov, please, they can be a potential escort for an aircraft carrier or UDC. What do you think of it?
