    It’s good that, perhaps, we will soon need a lot of weapons to protect RUSSIA’s NATIONAL SECURITY.

    The main thing is that production would be formed / restored in other regions of Russia. Then, simply by the law of large numbers and ships there will be more. In general, we now desperately need small and serving fleets.
    And by the way, what do they promise from weapons on a new ship?

    And not the last ship as far as one can judge from other news. The direction is right and there is nothing to whine to the people, if suddenly a little price jumps due to such a military mobilization in construction. Many enemies besiege us and climb into our brazen allies, we must not be liberal, we must be prepared to all aggressions, both internal and external.

    As far as I understand, this is the answer to the American littorals. The main task is anti-piracy activities, demonstration of the flag, in general "hospitals". In a threatened period, these ships can be re-equipped and carry out the duties of the OVR ships.
