    And will our destroyers code be built?

    And the Indians were great ... God himself ordered them to build many ships - they have warm seas around them - which they must be watched over.

    The first leader only in 2019 will begin to build. recourse But they are threatening to lay the first udk next year. We will see . If this really happens, there will be many reasons to reflect on the whole story with the Mistrals.

        As soon as they surrender Nakhimov, Petya immediately leaves for modernization, and there will still be one Orlan in combat readiness. But if the udk is laid down next year, this will mean that the project has been developed for several years - in parallel with the Mistrals. That is, initially we were going to build our udk, when there was still no contract break. That is, we bought technology for our own udk turns out.

    There, ours took part, and not only with armaments: the Baltic Plant manufactured drive shafts and propellers. It is a pity that the radar is an Israeli EL / M-2248 MF-STAR.

    The Indians are buying a lot of equipment, but they still can’t use it wisely, their hands are apparently not from the places they are growing from where they need to. Amount taken.

    For some reason, the article doesn’t say a word about the air defense system, it’s like Barak-8, it hits 70 km, like our Calm. It’s rather weak for the destroyer ...

        Indus request Owl arranged.

        Arranged something arranged, but a little benefit from it. According to the idea, this SAM can only destroy anti-ship missiles, and not their carriers. Now it’s quite difficult to find air-based anti-ship missiles with a flight range of less than 150-180 km. Carrying such a missile, not a single aircraft will enter the SAM zone. And the missiles themselves are easier, more efficient and cheaper to destroy ZAK / ZRAKami on approach. The question is, why do they need Barack?

    Hindus calmly and silently build muscle. It can be seen soon it will be a force that everyone will have to reckon with.

    The classification is perplexing, due to the completely absent air defense. AK-630 need not be discussed, not serious for a destroyer. Of course, assuming inaccuracies in information, but still somehow difficult to attribute to destroyers. Although maybe they have four dozen "BRAMOS" there, but with such a displacement? How interesting ... request

    These ships evoke mixed feelings. 76 mm. The AU looks somehow inappropriate on a ship of such a displacement, and even more so a class. What for RBU when there is a TA, why AK-630 when it was possible to buy a goalkeeper? But in general, of course, buzzing, especially the placement of antennas AFAR ...

      Well, RBU and TA have slightly different tasks. 533mm torpedoes provide PLO, while RBUs ​​provide PLO and PTO hi
