Mistral - Civilian Corps

French Defense Minister Jean Yves Le Drian, speaking at 19 March 2014, at the conference of aerospace and defense business circles organized under the auspices of the French newspaper Les Echos, said France is considering two universal Mistral amphibious ships under construction for Russia as unarmed civilian ships , and it is too early to say that the supply contract may be canceled due to the crisis in Ukraine. About this newspaper "DefenseNews".

“We supply civilian corps,” said Le Drian at the conference, “This is a reality. Then the customer can arm these two ships. We have to place an order that is not armed within the framework of the signed contract.”

Mistral - Civilian Corps

The Vladivostok helicopter landing ship dock, which is at the stage of factory running tests, is the lead ship of two Mistral-type ships ordered in France for the Russian Navy under the 2011 contract. Saint-Nazaire, 20.03.2014. Out-of-construction and equipment installation is continuing on the ship - compared to the well-known 5 March images, when Vladivostok made its first trip to the sea for testing, satellite antennas were added to the island superstructure (c) Christian Plagué /

The termination of the contract for the supply of two Mistral-type ships will be a “last resort” that can be taken only if the “third tier of sanctions” against Moscow is adopted, said Le Drian.

“The heads of government and states [EC] should decide on three levels of measures [sanctions],” he said. "If there are industrial measures, they will be at the third level."

“Now we are at the first level. If there are industrial measures, they will be at the third level. The second level is military [sanctions],” Le Drian said. “We’ll see how the situation develops, but [third level and contract cancellation] - this is an extreme measure. "

“The delivery of the first ship will take place in October, so the question of suspending the delivery will be decided in October,” added Le Drian.

Earlier, 18 in March, the trade unions of STX France in Saint-Nazaire, on which both Mistral-type ships for Russia are built, warned the French government about breaking the contract for these ships, pointing out the negative consequences such a measure could have on employment. The newspaper "Les Echos" in this regard reports that this contract with Russia provides about 1000 jobs in France, including about 600 - in Saint-Nazaire.

          Shipyard "Zaliv" Kerch. One of the largest shipyards in Eastern Europe.
          The dry dock of the plant (360 x 60 x 13,2 m) is served by two gantry cranes with a lifting capacity of 320 tons each and five gantry cranes with a lifting capacity of 80 tons each. Crane equipment allows the formation of hulls of large sections and blocks weighing up to 600 tons.
          The dry dock can be divided into two parts, which allows for the simultaneous repair and construction of several ships at the same time. Another technological complex has two horizontal berths of 400 m in length with the following cranes: two for 80 tons each, three for 32 tons each and four for 16 tons each. Both lines have a common launching device — a transverse slipway, which enables launching of vessels weighing up to 2500 tons .
          Product Examples: Nuclear-powered icebreaker lighter-container ship “Sevmorput” Length 228,8 m, Width 32,2 m; Board height 18,3 m; Deadweight 33780 t.
          Oil tanker "Crimea" Length 277,1 m; Width 45 m; Board height 25,4 m; Volume (net) 202500 m3

        And then, for our normal UDK or even aircraft carriers, they will be able to build moorings and infrastructure much faster and better.
        In general, ships come and go, but the infrastructure remains. The Mistrals will leave, others will come, for which everything will be ready.

In the event of a contract break, STX France must pay 70% contract amounts, and STX Corporation works extensively with the citizen, and we can transfer orders to China as well.

    These are helicopter carriers and for Russia, at this stage, it is easier and cheaper to buy them. Of course, it is not entirely correct, or rather, completely wrong, to give money to strangers, instead of developing our own production. But so far, there seems to be no other way. Russia has not yet departed from the consequences of humpback Yeltsinism and is investing in the production of what you cannot buy new submarines anywhere.

    Our large landing ships from the times of the USSR are turning into scrap metal from using them to the maximum. And what is real in return? Well, if without a traditional bazaar about cutting? And even if it’s about sawing - how much on the great martyr "Ivan Grena" they sawed quite "patriotically" and where is the ship? Here in the ratio of money spent per ton of displacement? Something tells me - during the construction, it was not sour and the end is not yet in sight, this is on a ship of 4 thousand tons. When will it enter service? Here, "Mistral", whether this or that, but a year has passed and the first one is already on the move. So there is no need to turn up your nose - take what you have, and let the stool roll back, you will take horseradish off a plate of money from francs, but new ones are better let the finals do it - it will be quick and efficient, and it will be easier to look after the building.

    In fact, the BIUS, for the sake of which, according to the "official opinion", the purchase of this junk was started, is a product of the very, that neither is, military purpose. That is, it turns out, according to the French assertion that they "build only civilian corps," the BIUS is original and should not have been installed on ships? It turns out that the contract did not initially envisage CIUS for delivery, but only navigation equipment for civil purposes was put? So we were lied to all this time? It turns out that this contract is really either a "scandalous bribe" to the French for helping to clear the "0808", or a sickly "drank" the dough, or (which is more likely) - both together.

        This is just a stupid chatter by some French officials. The construction is under the contract (even a little ahead of schedule), so there is no reason to break the contract. Hollande, most likely, did not stay in power for long, if Le Pen came to power in France, the question of withdrawing from the European Union could be raised.

      Together with the two Mistrals, their technology is transferred. And it is precisely in the manufacture of Mistral that p * ndo spare parts and accessories are not needed. What can not be said about their approximate analogues of other countries, as is the case with Spain or South Korea. If the paddlers decide to jump off the train, then a big penalty is provided. In Russia, you can also carry out your own development of these technologies, but they will cost as much as everything that is done in Russia, that is, 3, or even 30 times more. And ships of this class are needed as air. These are the latest floating hospitals, or the floating headquarters of the General Staff or even the GRU. Be strong and no one will touch.

So Russia is simply doomed to have powerful Armed Forces, all weapons corresponding to the modern level, to be made at DOMESTIC enterprises (and the latest Western technologies and equipment to be obtained with the help of special services, as was the case in the USSR)!

      Serbs, of course, a pity. Humanly sorry. But it was they who unleashed the First World War, and as its logical continuation, the Second World War happened. Not a single small nationality has yet understood that when you are the size of a microbe and throw a stone into the water, then your people’s circles from the water can, if not be destroyed, put on the verge of destruction. If you are small and weak, then die your ambition and arrogance. How many times did they get involved in something that was not their size, and then when they needed to answer for their actions, did they start plaintively calling Russia? Serbian bros, Bulgarian bros ... still to continue?

      It was they who were the first of the entire bloc of socialist countries to spit in the direction of the USSR, and taught the Poles and Czechs, Hungarians and Slovaks this, the score can be continued for a long time.

      They were "that very first * affectionate tela *" that sucked two queens, that is, the USSR and amers (and others like them). Otherwise, it is simply impossible to explain more than the high standard of living of the then Yugoslavia.

      They turned off their air defense system and did not even try to resist. This is how it was necessary to be down, so as Milosevic to go to The Hague and hope for a fair and unbiased court. Who are the judges? (c) Griboedov.

      And, the coolest thing is that not one Albanian, Kosovo (although it is the same thing, the same nationality) international criminal, who was almost a wagon with a cart, was not convicted. And former Serb leaders, almost all died in prison under mysterious circumstances. And among them there were many people more worthy than Milosevic.

      Once a wise ruler once said that Russians cannot be used.оby better Serbs than the Serbs themselves.

All this bacchanalia began when a not clever assistant to the village machine operator began the collapse of the USSR on behalf of the CIA. Loans taken from the west did not fall into the treasury, but into the pocket of the first president of the USSR, they don’t open their funds for salaries, or is it for memoirs about the collapse of the USSR.

    This is a word about the beloved by many Juan Carlos I ... Gishpan people would have climbed a cactus long ago, by order. Would cry ... But not licked. Until the Elder is stingy. The French, although they are trying to pretend to be a rag, will not refuse the deal. Uncle Syoma has no methods against the French. Only if you reimburse twice the value of the transaction + the cost of sanctions, with your green candy wrappers. And as Aunt Sarah said with Deribasovskaya: I will now feel a little funny. For it is money ... Taki Uncle Syoma already counted everything, in advance. Oh, come on! When was it, what would Syoma spend an extra pittance? Would he rather be visited by Grandfather Kandratiy or Rabinovich, with an import, than he will give to loans not in growth? And yet the same french uniforms - counted. And I will tell you more: Uncle Syoma knows that the French know and that the French know that Uncle Syoma knows. And everyone is silent. For money.

    Well, a little about the Koreans with their Dokdo (Dokdo or whatever it is, let the philologists understand) Whose shipyard is this? (specifically Chantier de l'Atlantic) Where is STX Europe and Who is DCNS's General Contractor? Where is Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) and "whose will they be?"

    the fact that they will not refuse is a fact! and our shipbuilders should have already prepared and calculated how and what kind of weapons to put into it so that it doesn’t work out how they will fit in only then they will start to move!

    The main thing is that one of the mistrals is called "Sevastopol" :)

    A huge awkward dish. Why overpay for scrap if this is an ordinary civilian ship. In the agreement, the equipment also appears, and technology) So, if ours does not want to take it, they may not take it. What they signed up to, let everything be done and delivered.

    Everything is fine. Frightened, hurt. They will think next time. But one thing can be said about ships. Although they seem to be - as they are not needed - this is not a fact. But the technology of their construction transferred to us is now being used at full speed. Sectional assembly and construction. when a section with all the attributes leaves the factory. wiring. pipelines, mechanisms. Then it is mounted with the neighboring ones, and the descent goes on. At any plant that stands by the sea, you can rivet sections. Not like before. The whole ship stood on a slipway and it was built like a house of bricks. 21st century however.

    Frogs turned on the back! We realized that Russia would heat them up by 1,2 billion euros and deprive their shipyards of their long-awaited work. That means, first, talking and then thinking!

    Let them take their Mistrals, along with the sanctions, and the grandmothers will return, the ships probably are also made of plastic, like the Peugeot and Citroen!
    For these grandmas it’s better to buy from China a dozen or so Mysteries, and there will still be helicopters!
