    Transferring to the fleet after state tests is not a quick matter. And then the crew still has to hand over a bunch of tasks so that the ship is recognized as combat-ready. Yes, and the weather is winter, we need to make allowances for it. self-propelled floating dock. Otherwise, we’ll wait, we can build ships, but there will be nothing to deliver them to the customer.

    1. It's good that they stopped at 280/385, and did not jump to 386!
    2. Finally a full-fledged series!
    3. It's nice to see the progress of the Amur plant after a long construction period and a failure in terms of time.
    4. Just don’t stop and come up with new projects, but go the way of Arly Boe for now
    5. All hope for the Gorshkovs!
    6. We are waiting for Ash and Lada.

    Great news - both for the Navy and for all of us!
    And if we add the fact that there is another corvette (or rather, an RTO, which is essentially a corvette too :)) - it is being tested with might and main ... then the fleet has good news for today :))

    Thanks for the corvette. The next in line is a frigate, and then maybe the industry will rise and make a cruiser. Moscow was drowned, and the flagship cruiser on the Black Sea is needed. What is a naval flotilla without a cruiser?
