Russia will receive the French "Mistral"

111
As the lenta.ru, 8 in May, a source in the French government announced that France would adhere to the agreed terms of supplying Russia with two Mistral helicopter carriers.


Agence France-Presse notes that Russia will receive the first ship Vladivostok in October 2014, and the second - Sevastopol - will be part of the Black Sea fleet in 2015 year.

Information Agency “Russia's Arms” notes that the US authorities have expressed concerns about this deal. In particular, Victoria Nuland, US Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs, said that Washington is still against the supply of Mistral to the Russian Federation.

It is worth noting that, at the request of the Russian side, a number of changes were made to the French draft.

In particular, the composition of the steel alloys for the hull was changed to ice class, which allows the use of ships in northern latitudes. The height of the UDC was also increased, since the internal docks of the ship were converted for mooring large-sized helicopters such as the Ka-52K and Ka-28. The design of the ship provided space to accommodate additional weapons. Instead of the outdated Syracuse satellite communications system, the Russian Mistral will receive the domestic Centaurus system.

Earlier it was also reported that Russia promised to present serious penalties to the French side in case of refusal to build helicopter carriers. Recall that the contract for the supply of "Mistral" was signed in 2011 year. Its amount exceeds 1 billion dollars.

            Yes, and check brutally carefully, for the installation of hidden bugs and hardware or software ability to interfere with the ship's systems. For me personally, this fact causes contradictory feelings, on the one hand, it is good that there will be replenishment of the ship's personnel, on the other hand, well, as it is "nekomelfo" from enemies to buy military equipment. Okay, how it will be.

        Serdyukov, of course, in the letter M, but by no means well done - with this money something more worthwhile could be built, and not hold on to French eggs. They will strangle themselves for this money, but they will not announce sanctions. Although it would be better for us if they announced and paid the penalty.

            For example, they will not reach the Bosphorus. If only one way. And with Mistrals it's easy! In principle, the latest helicopter docks will definitely not be superfluous either on the Black Sea or in the Sea of ​​Japan. The possibilities for amphibious operations are increasing dramatically. Yes, and a good wedge between the United States and France! Let them squabble.

        What is the argument about?
        Why so much noise?

        The Mistral is the cheapest ship in its class. Transaction value - $ 1,6 billion for both ships, moreover, at least 20% of the work is carried out at domestic shipyards

        An insignificant amount by the standards of modern shipbuilding. For comparison, one American Aegis destroyer costs 2,2 billion.

            We do not have a school for the construction of such BDK ships; this is completely different. We would create our project for about 5 years and taking into account that we don’t have experience in the construction of just such ships in the project, there would probably be flaws. Ready ships we would get after 2020. I myself am a designer by training, although not a military industrial complex, and I can say that from scratch it is difficult and expensive to create such a project without the experience of designing and building a ship of this type. Plus, the cost of designing and building such a ship will increase significantly. Ours really offered to build such a ship, but it was not our project, but the Korean one is the same, but the Korean project. The most important thing here is not the ships themselves, but the project, documentation, personnel training and NATO management systems, which the Franks did not agree to set up for a long time. Most importantly, these ships will become the zero point for our school of building such ships, and the following ships will be built by us and according to our project, which will be developed based on the experience of building and operating the Mistral. Another plus is that, as far as I know, the most important thing is that we needed to - we got the documentation for the project, even if the francs broke the contract, we got what we needed, and change their project so that they could not sue Theft of int property for experienced designers is already a snap. By the way, if the Franks break the contract, then we’ll also beat off the grandmothers. In fact, we bought for money what we would have to strain intelligence earlier. And the Americans are doing the same, they in Ukraine bought several samples of everything that Ukrainians did for our army — samples of equipment and components.

            A helicopter carrier is not an aircraft carrier and does not need an escort squadron. In fact, this is something between an aircraft carrier and a BDK, and in the case of a mobile military base, which, if necessary, can be adjusted to the place where we need to ensure a military presence. For example, in the Arctic or in South America. In addition, a moratorium on the industrial development of the Antarctic expires in 2025, and it seems we want to participate in its development. Such a ship is very good at controlling the situation in such cases. In principle, one could do without it, but it is more convenient. As for its vulnerability without escort ships, well, this is a ship for local wars and coastal control, and not for global wars. The debate about whether such a ship is needed or not will continue to go on, but I believe that it is quite convenient and the money was well spent.

      And grieve and rejoice! Sad: because the cattle Serdyukov drove us into this contract with his friend Medvedev. Rejoice: because we need such ships, there is only one aircraft carrier, and this can be used to transport equipment in case of emergency. Our helicopters have great firepower, so the advantage will also be that Mistral will be able to transfer helicopters as close as possible to a certain point in the sea and the coast! Saving time and fuel for helicopters is already on the face. I think our sailors can find them worthy use!

      Of course, rejoice, but you also need to derive benefit. It is necessary to raise a fuss among the "liberal crowd" within Europe itself. Blame the French president for "sponsoring" Russia and supporting the Russians' course of militarism and stuff like that.
      France is pressed against the wall, cancellation of the contract will hit them heavily with penalties.
      Do these ships need Russia? Are needed. Vitally necessary? I think not. Will we get a lot by getting them? Yes, the amount is not that big. We will lose a lot if we do not get it? No, we’ll not lose anything at all, we will redistribute resources more adequately to the current military-political situation.

    All the same, the capitalist will hang himself on a rope, which he himself will sell (V.I. Lenin). Sanctions are sanctions, and money apart. Mr. Taburetkin has already received kickbacks, now how will you return kickbacks. The French troughs of the French army itself are not needed, and then there are fines. The trouble is, tolerant France is selling weapons to Putin’s authoritarian regime.

    Russia will receive the French "Mistral"

    In the current situation, this is direct evidence that the mystery contract is more beneficial to NATO France than Russia. It also turned out that for the money, they themselves could have built several helicopter carriers.
    Two (or more) monuments of corruption or idiocy (which is unlikely).

      "It also became clear that for this money, they themselves could build several helicopter carriers." Where did you find out? )

      We have BDK Ivan Gren, which is 4 times smaller than Mistral for 10 years now ..
      Frigate Gorshkov - 8 years (and the end and the edge are not visible)

      And here for 3 years we got excellent (whatever you say) and VERY needed right now ships. Our shipyards for such a period would never have surrendered such ships .. yes, they probably would not have even managed to design them in 3 years.
      And about the price, the grandmother said in two, where it’s cheaper.
      According to rumors, the Stereguschiy type corvettes cost us almost 400 million bucks a piece in the building .. Corvette! And here for the price of 4 corvettes - 2 BDK plus technology.

        With technology bummer. At first they said 2 more Mistrals to buy, but now they may refuse altogether. At least in those technologies that we are really interested in.
        A source close to the main headquarters of the Navy confirmed to the newspaper that Vladivostok would be equipped with domestic communications. Earlier it was reported that the ship will receive the French satellite communications system "Syracuse" (Syracuse).

        According to a Izvestia source, “it became clear that France could only install outdated electronics, and it was decided to use domestic equipment. Moreover, the installation of foreign equipment can lead to information leaks. ”

      possess. we do not have and did not have ships of this class. and from the BDK only Polish ships built 30 years ago.

      otherwise the Americans would not be so much against their purchase by us. in fact, the contract at one time was very difficult, according to rumors, the French were even heavily pressured before signing.

      This is the ship of the flagship landing group. Tasks - headquarters ship, providing airborne landing support, over-the-horizon landing of troops. Ideally, to have 1 such in each fleet, and in the Pacific Fleet and 2 would not hurt.
      They would have to build 10 modern direct landing landing gears for them, like the same Gren, but more modern ... Ivan Gren is still an old Soviet project - albeit doped with various improvers

        From Wiki:
        The height of the hangar allows you to place the Russian Ka-27, Ka-29 and Ka-52K helicopters on the hangar deck, which was confirmed during the visit of the Mistral UDC to St. Petersburg during test helicopter landings on the deck. However, the opening in the elevator area is not high enough for the Ka-29 and will be increased

        Is the height of the deck really increasing due to the increase in the height of the openings in the elevator area? After all, there are various technical solutions that can lead to increased stability compared to the original version.
        I think that these issues should nevertheless be covered by specialists.
        Another thing is surprising: all helicopters offered for use have been manufactured for a long time - except for the Ka-52K, which represents a further development of the Ka-50 model. A promising helicopter (type Ka-90, Ka-92) has not yet been created, although as early as 2007 there was a concept.
        As if helicopters were not outdated even before Mistral was adopted.

    According to the Montreux Convention.
    The order of passage through the Black Sea straits of warships is regulated by articles 8-22 of the Convention. From appendix IV to the Convention on the regime of straits, it can be seen that ships of any class (i.e., aircraft carriers) can be in the fleets of the Black Sea states. At the time of passage of the straits, it is forbidden to perform flights of aircraft on board ships.
    The Montreux Convention was concluded in 1936 for 20 years and is automatically extended for the next 20 years, if two years before the expiration of the validity period there are no comments from the states that have signed it. The Montreux Convention continues to operate at the present time.

    our shipyards are loaded, we can’t unload them in any way. There were claims to the Mistrals that they would have no place to go, but in light of the construction of a new canal in South America, you need to understand that this is work for the Mistral. And not only this. And also regarding the loading of shipyards, 2 more of these ships will be built entirely in Russia. If we still add here the technologies that the country will receive along with the ships, then we can understand that the money was given not in vain. And if you still imagine how much time and money it would take to design and build such ships from scratch in Russia, then absolutely.

        Greeks back in the 60s. BTR was built in series. Where are their tanks? There are none of them.
        Neither the Russian Empire nor the USSR have ever built landing helicopter carrier docks. Even if we can do everything separately (landing ships, helicopter carriers of anti-aircraft defense, etc., and is any of their creators alive?), It’s not a fact that an sensible project will immediately turn out. In the little things you can get confused and mess up - there is no experience.

    The Russian world is celebrating the return of Crimea; the West cannot do anything about it - yes, except for the strengthening of sanctions.

    Sanctions??!
    Isn't that an empty gesture? fool
    Will these "sanctions" really harm Russia?


    Economic sanctions are double-edged weapons. Like a bear hug. It is especially dangerous when you lower the bear out of its arms ... laughing

    When the French threaten Russia by not supplying Mistral class landing ships, to whom will this move hurt more? Russia?

    Maybe, but only for a while. On the other hand, this step will significantly reduce the financing of the French shipyard. Many hundreds or even thousands of French workers will lose their jobs; the government will have to pay unemployment money. What do the French socialists do? What do unions associated in Le Gauche do?

    The French army will not buy these boats. Why and? Will there be a war in Africa and it will be necessary to accidentally land in Marrakech? No.
    The United States will not buy these ships either. Against who? Maybe they are planning another Bay of Pigs? The USA has its own boats. Who else needs to buy an amphibious landing craft?
    China might find the ship useful for landing in Taiwan, or in the "disputed" islands in the South China Sea.

    Will France sell a ship below cost to China? If so, the United States will not say thank you to France. fellow

    I think it's worth it. Well done Serdyukov!

    What is he doing well? What left Russian workers unemployed? For kickbacks I gave the order to French shipbuilders? Then we will buy spare parts for helicopter carriers from the paddling pools for rabid grandmothers. Some other cunning spy equipment will be installed there. which they will not immediately find, 100%.
    I don’t know about you, but I would like such fellows in prison, or as an option in the river.

      BDK Ivan Gren has been under construction for 12 years, the readiness of 70%, gobbled up the cost of one mistral, while the displacement is a quarter of the mistral.

      The mains signed in 2011, one of them will already be handed over to the fleet.

    Here it is necessary to look at this project, not as a purchase of two Mistrals, but for further cooperation, because after the transfer of two Mistrals, the next 3 will be built in Russia under the license of French shipbuilders.

    Rather, he saw himself more in his pocket, but world geopolitics put its end to this i. The time coincided. I was glad that "Mistrals" can go in northern latitudes.

    Oh, would get it in 2014 a year and in Sevastopol. Well, just beat the West that they are so tied to us with a purse and resources that there really is no reason to bullish from them.

    Of course, I believe that having experience in the construction of helicopter carriers, aircraft-carrying ships and BDKs, we ourselves could work out and build ships no worse. Our large universal BDKs were in principle the best in their class. But, since it happened, let the French serve in our fleet. It will not be worse from this now. The main thing is that we do not forget to build ships larger than a frigate at our shipyards. Perhaps the construction of the following Mistrals at our shipyards will help to modernize and restore the shipyards, as well as prepare new workers. After all, how much was destroyed and lost during the years of democratic transformation ....

    There was once a statement by French shipbuilders on the site. The meaning is: If the Russians remove Hollande, we will build the Mistral for them for free. If they take us away from NATO, we’ll plunge them into a battle fleet. And if they also provide economic assistance, Tricolor will call at all the shipyards ! bully Of course, I am not responsible for the accuracy of the above, but something similar! repeat

    The ship is not bad, the name is suitable "Sevastopol". In order not to idle in vain, let him swim in the Kerch Strait, he will transport Russian tourists. Again, sailors will gain experience. And there you can take another flight to Odessa. They say a whole battalion with equipment and helicopters transports.

    As I understand it, the mistral is an offensive weapon. The question is: with whom are we going to fight and who are we going to attack in the Pacific Ocean, in the Arctic Ocean? Maybe it's some kind of disguised washing of money ???
