      it would be nice if six boats before 2016 are for you, and not for Vietnam. By the way, I noticed that if necessary for overseas buyers, shipyards work as usual, but when it comes to themselves, the process drags on for years. The trend however

        Omar, hello! Remember, a year or two ago, Serdyukov "fought" with the military-industrial complex for prices. The Russian government has squeezed the producers in terms of money, now it is more profitable for the latter to do abroad. There is the concept of domestic Russian prices (for the CSTO countries) and export prices. This seems to me to be the reason. There is one more factor - the Russian military-industrial complex produces competitive products and is one of the "suppliers" of currency for the country. 16 billion in 2012 is not a joke and a significant contribution of the military-industrial complex to the Russian economy. So it seems to me that the Russian government is not against keeping foreign supplies a priority. At least the facts speak about it.

      I support. Vietnam, although not large, is our permanent ally in Southeast Asia.

    Interestingly, the war in Vietnam began with the allegedly sunk US destroyer by Vietnamese submarines, but after the war, when the Americans fled with beaten faces, they admitted that it was a provocation, because Vietnam had no fleet at all! Now, Any opponent attacking Vietnam will pay dearly for their decision!

    Soon, such beauties will go to the Russian Black Sea Fleet. drinks One is already on the B-261 Novorossiysk water with the crew on board, soon for testing. Two boats are being built at an accelerated pace - the B-237 Rostov-on-Don and the B-262 Stary Oskol, the crew has already been formed for the first. Boats should be part of the Navy in 2014. Also in 2014 another boat of Project 636.3 - B-268 Veliky Novgorod will be laid down. Interesting boats in Sevastopol go or in Novorossiysk? hi

    Excuse me, Vietnamese brothers, I accidentally in the name "Ha Noi" (right?) The letters "X" and "H" subconsciously inadvertently swapped places - I look and think - it's like they were written in Russian documents until it came to - I was wrong, however ... lol

    I also remembered joke: you can't say "Chinese" - this is racism towards them, you have to say "our yellow-faced, narrow-eyed, bow-legged brothers" (you can't say "blacks" - this is racism towards them, you have to say "our blacks, fat-lipped, curly brothers ")
