    A great example for some countries. An example of the fact that the belly is only when the ass is covered by military force. The country is on the verge of default, but the construction of the fleet is holy ...

      If this is a hint of Russia, then it is unfair. That fleet, that army, are reborn, and receive not bad equipment and weapons. Here we can say so. The euphoria of global leadership has passed, the Yankees caught on.

    And the coast guard ships with a good air group (attack helicopter, PLO, a couple of drones) with a 3-4 squadron from them seem to be able to calmly control all the Caribbean. With a good helicopter, even the Navy of Venezuela is not scary. Maybe only Colombians ..
    And with such autonomy - and the floor of the African coast.
    Such is the reserve fleet.

    Given that Latin American drug cartels use submarines to transport goods to the United States, such coast guard boats are very helpful, and preferably more.

    In Zelenodolsk, they are building a slightly smaller, but similar Ocean for the FSB. They will replace the flagships of the border troops - 11351 Ave.

    They have problems with the budget there, but this somehow doesn’t particularly affect the military-industrial complex, the evil empire is still building its war machine.

      Because they have an understanding that the military-industrial complex is technology, progress, qualification, intelligence, we unfortunately did not understand this and only realized recently, believing that capital is wholesalers and flea markets
