      On the contrary, I was surprised at the speed of construction under this contract! Anyway, everything has already been paid and there is no turning back, so let them make the ship. There will be a unique mixture of everything and everything on the ship - in terms of the hull, and on it our equipment))

        It seems to me that a monumental boat will turn out, the picture is simple. They will frighten the Japanese, the most horror story. If it does, yes, it will be the only useful thing made by a stool for the country.

    But the devils know how to build! They know that the French customer is not our Moscow Region, neither a delay in time or marriage will be forgiven. Such a unit, according to an unfamiliar project, almost a hundred meters long and a mass comparable with the displacement of a destroyer and in such a short time, but without complaints about the quality, is worth a lot! good

    But how much noise there was - "The Baltic Shipyard cannot fulfill the order on time .....", including from the Deputy Minister of the Russian Armed Forces, Yuri Borisov. And this is not his first "professional go-ahead", he even considered the prospect of using hovercraft in the Navy, like they never existed there.

    Well, the timing for our shipbuilding industry is fantastic. It is also encouraging that part of the money that will be paid to the French for the finished ships will return back to Russia at the Baltzavod as a subcontractor of the project.
