      I wonder if the Indians managed to get engines for all ships?

    Engines from one country, lines of shafts from another, weapons - generally a hodgepodge ... More recently, this was in the order of things, but in the new realities it has become a huge risk: worsening relations with the manufacturer of components, and the carriage (ship) turns into a pumpkin due to for the impossibility of carrying out the necessary maintenance.

    It's clear with weapons. What about the Combat Information Center? It is interesting to read about the brain of the destroyer. 21st century in the yard

    In armament as 22350, in terms of displacement one and a half times more, the question is - why?

    The inertia of my thinking does not allow me to consider the main caliber of 76 mm acceptable on a destroyer.
    SAM for 32 missiles - on our frigates, the Redut air defense system has more missiles, if I'm not mistaken (considering that 4 small missiles can be loaded into one cell).
    Air defense of the near zone - all the same ancient AK-630s, which only the lazy did not criticize.
    Well, as a cherry on an Indian cake, no less ancient RBU-6000 - are they really still effective against someone?
