      Read carefully before 2016, he will not return to duty, in a good situation. Such a period of repair and modernization indicates the unwillingness of the industry to supply new weapons.
      "Nakhimov" in my opinion will not be released before 2020.

    words and music by A. Gorodnitsky

    When the heart is heavy
    And it’s cold in the chest.
    To the steps of the Hermitage
    Come at dusk,
    Where without drink and bread
    Forgotten through the ages
    Atlanta hold the sky

    On stone hands.

    Keep his colossus
    Not honey - from the side.
    Their backs are tense,
    Your knees are flattened.
    Their hard work
    More important other work:

    Of them weaken someone -
    And the sky will fall.

    In the darkness the widows mourn,
    Fire up the fields
    And the fungus will rise purple
    And the Earth will end.
    And the sky from year to year
    Everything presses harder
    It trembles good
    Rocket ships.

    Are they guys
    Turned bodies
    Delivered once -
    And the change did not come.
    Their light of day does not please
    They do not sleep at night,
    Their beauty shells
    Fade war.

    They stand forever
    Put your foreheads in trouble
    Not gods - men
    Habitual to work.
    And still hope to live
    Until then, until
    Atlanta sky hold
    On stone hands.

    Hello to everyone. hi

    Good news. Bottom-and-out reinforcement made. Now the stage of modernization. Surely they will replace the P-500 with something new, such as Onyx or BrahMos. The air defense system also needs to be updated: S-300F and the Wasp are already old men. The artillery is normal, only MZA will be replaced, and of course new RES are needed. And the ship will still serve the Fatherland!

      On the night of June 25, the cruiser was taken out of the docking chamber and moored at the shallow embankment to carry out modernization and outfitting works afloat. Specialists must replace more than half of the cable routes, modernize the missile system, communications and intelligence systems, the newspaper "Vzglyad" writes.

      The repair work of Marshal Ustinov will be completed next year. In turn, the modernization of the cruiser will be completed in 2015. After all the procedures, Marshal Ustinov will return to the combat strength of the fleet.

    Two years for painting, changing the stern seal and sorting outboard fittings. On merchant ships of a larger displacement, these operations take 2-3 weeks.

    Not really four years ....

    This is the construction period of Mistral, and for repair work it is just a long time, it is not being rebuilt.

    And in my opinion it is easier to assemble a new vessel than to inspect, sort, change the old one made in the past millennium. And this only applies to iron, but what about devices that have not been manufactured for a long time, wiring is similar?
    So here you just will not envy.
    No, it's still good that in 4 years they will update and release for testing!

    RRC "Marshal Ustinov" (pr. 1164 "Atlant") was laid down at the plant named after 61 Kommunara in Nikolaev in October 1978.

    Our iron does not sink even after such a period, in one word "Atlant". Re-equip, re-equip, but at 34 nodes it will not be bad to catch up with fear of enemies.

    By the time you release it into the fleet, you will have to do everything that has ALREADY been done anew. Service experience and the history of ship repair clearly indicate that large ships after such large-scale repairs, as a rule, are written off before reaching the fleet. It smells like "wrapping up" ... It looks like hidden sabotage - like the endlessly lasting reforms of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Pension Fund of Russia, etc. Public control of this topic is definitely required. It would not turn out that this is another "trough" for leeches. It is very sad, although it is understandable that the staff is full of seams, that the welders, that the cablemen ... And nevertheless put +. Let's see how it goes further.

      If a welder in a hazardous production has the same salary as an electronics seller in a store, then it’s naive to think that people will fall into working professions. It’s enough to make a decent salary and tomorrow there will be a line of several applicants for a place at the factory entrance

    Most likely "Basalts" are modernized to "Volcano", although the soul requires "Caliber". I would like to look at it, already modernized, so as not to guess "on the coffee grounds".
