Media: Russian equipment, dismantled with the "Mistral", delivered to the Leningrad region at the expense of France

All Russian equipment previously installed on the “Mistral” delivered to Vyborg at the expense of the French side, the act of reception and transmission will be signed in the coming days, reports Look with reference to tass.




“All equipment was dismantled and sent to Russia, on December 13 it arrived by sea in Vyborg. In the next day or two, representatives of the Saint-Nazaire shipyard will arrive in Vyborg to check the integrity of the cargo, then customs clearance will begin, after which the act of acceptance will be signed, ”a military diplomatic source told the agency.

“A total of eleven 20-ton containers and two oversized loads were delivered - platforms with large antennas,” he said.

“Among these cargoes is the Russian combat control system, previously associated with the French combat control system SENIT-9,” the source added.

“The question of using this equipment by Egypt is still open,” he said. “If the Egyptians do not buy this equipment, it will be used on Russian warships.”

The source also noted that "the Russian Mistral crews were disbanded, the sailors were distributed to other ships."

    Without a sucker - life is bad ... thanks to Uncle Hollande, who, due to his undisguised servility to Obama, missed a lucrative contract, and managed to get burned out on it. laughing

      The French are whores who have tarnished us and their heads with these Mistrals. Let only ours decide what else to buy, order from them. I will laugh for a long time.

        And I’m even glad, to be honest! We ourselves know how to build .. It’s easier to buy, of course, but such a farce-walrus can happen (as with Ukraine)! Everything is going fine ...

          the Mistral saga is in full swing. They are now in the region where they should have been. Egypt received them with the consent of Russia and will be forced to "buy" from Russia and "stuffing" and helicopters, and "subscribe" to the service and training l / s. Which essentially means controlling the use of these vessels by Russia.
          An attempt to attract other manufacturers to the equipment of these pelvis is doomed to failure. they were originally made for Russian insides and tasks. Unprofitable project.
          The whole story with the transfer of the Mistral to Egypt was initially oriented to Russia. I will not be surprised that the Americans do not object to such a statement in principle. They needed only a delay in putting these vessels into operation. In the future, they are called upon to carry out police operations in the BV region, which is subject to a complete redistribution between the main players. In this scenario, Russia is given the role of a counterweight to Iranian influence, which will allow the Anglo-Saxons to focus on countering China.

            Here I do not agree with you)))
            The fact that the mattresses will oppose China is, of course, an indisputable fact, but the fact that the mattresses so easily assign Russia the role of a counterweight to Iran, here you gave a blunder.
            The question is, why then did the United States rock the whole region for so many years? In order to ditch Hussein and Gaddafi, thousands of their soldiers and a diplomat, rocking Syria, spawning ISIS and investing in it hundreds of millions of dollars to transfer the flag of the leader in the Russian region?
            I do not see the logic.
            Zigzag with Mistral, for mattresses was important in terms of demonstrating its influence in Europe and nothing more. The fact that this project was beneficial for Russia only in terms of obtaining technologies and no more, is also a fact.
            Everyone understands that their further use would be burdensome for the budget of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, and therefore the feint with the ears from Hollande with the refusal of their transfer was perceived with "understanding" i.e. with a sigh of relief. Note that Russia did not file a lawsuit to pay a penalty. The French returned the funds actually spent, dismantled the equipment at their own expense and paid for the delivery of the equipment to the owner.
            Here recently, Oland said that he was counting on cooperation with Russia in shipbuilding and receiving orders from it !!!

              : o) Not Hochma or schizophrenia.
              The whole story with the Mistrals is sewn with white thread. It is Russia that benefits France’s refusal to supply the Mistrals. Russia itself could not refuse - would have to pay dearly. So the “political stupidity” of the French government so convenient for us was organized. As a result, they returned the money to us and transferred the pelvis to a country that is in no way capable of bringing it to mind without the help of Russia. Any technologically developed country will not undertake this project because of its focus on Russian equipment and weapons. Alteration will cost more than the construction of new pelvis.
              The only ones who can take on this are China. And here the states are already very opposed.
              Regarding Iran ... Have you ever wondered - why suddenly the states decided to lift sanctions from Iran and bring it to the big stage?
              The fact that the states destroyed BV does not mean that they do not need control over this region. Israel is too unacceptable for the Arabs. Turkey is too tied to Europe and poorly predicted. Saudis - conduct their own policy and the states do not like it already because it is its own, and not theirs. All that remains is to blow up the region, which will strengthen the dollar and delay the time of its collapse. And for this it is necessary to bring large players to the field: Iran and Russia.
              It is now that Iran and I have partially coincided interests in Syria. But very soon they will become very opposite. Not only in the BV, but also in Central Asia and in the Caucasus.

      Probably indeed, a colleague, this is a question, since at the moment we unfortunately are not building ships with commensurable sizes with the Mistrals. In general, if I understand correctly, the "filling" of each ship is created for certain tasks and dimensions of the ship. hi

            It was like this: Sarkozy helped to quench a wave of Russian actions in Georgia, for which Medvedev promised to do something useful for them, and it was useful to order two Mistrals. It’s like compensation for services, so top management steered in and chose the least useless option (if you look carefully, you don’t have to take anything from France for money. Their car industry has long been in Russia, in space, atom, aircraft construction and tank building Behind Russia.Shipbuilding is the only thing they can take), therefore, the Moscow Region simply decided what type of ships to order and no more.

    Interestingly, the costs of the shipyard of Saint-Nazar, Monsieur Hollande will pay from his pocket. Or does France’s budget cover “non-fulfillment obligations”? Or maybe the State Department is already paying for "free France" ??? Well, it's interesting ??
    For some, freedom is to fight the world "evil" in the form of ISIS. For some, the freedom to drop bombs anywhere (hospital in Kunduz, a residential quarter in Syria ... but did the USAF have "freedom") - after all, the FSA is also a "free country" ...
    But Alber Camus, such a Frenchman, said: “Freedom is, first of all, not privileges, but duties.”
    And then something with responsibilities in a mattress country today is bad ...

        The shipyard repaid its debts by prepayment for the American contract, it still needs to be worked out, so there is no profit and cannot be. Upon completion of the American contract, the shipyard will again be in the same pit as it was with the same debts, until they suck in their Mistrals to someone and receive money for them. Chet is not important for you with accounting.

            3. We need a huge assortment of related chemistry: fluxes, primers, paints, varnishes. Cable production tons and electrical equipment are also tons;
            4. And yet you can’t do it all with your bare hands and with a bare booty, you need special clothing and tools, huge cranes need to be serviced because the equipment works forever without repairs only for humanities, for engineers it is serviced in accordance with the regulations.

            Almost all over the world, a standard contract for such large things provides for an advance payment of 50 to 80%. These are practically good manners in business. Final settlement usually takes place at 100% availability. Those. in 50-20% of the finished product, the manufacturer invests his money, which are not superfluous. (specifically, according to the Mistrals, the feed was made in St. Petersburg, because it remains in France in any way, you just need to pay for it). So, the humanities, this feed, as well as payment for the dismantling of equipment ate all the working capital of this shipyard. And now there is nothing to pay salaries, pay for electricity, water and materials received. This is all clear to any financially minded person, here you don’t even need to read the news, why you didn’t understand such questions for me, or rather, the humanist.

              Well, ok, is there a cost of the contract that costs end-to-end? profit is not pledged? in fact, Egypt takes ships not much cheaper than Russia, despite the fact that Russia was supposed to transfer technologies, I believe that the cost of these technologies was very significant in the price of the Mistrals.
              You estimate the cost of the ship only on the basis of costs, often the remuneration of the manufacturer very much exceeds the cost of goods.
              The French got a very profitable contract, plus they still have ships for which there are already buyers.
              You talk with confidence about the financial problems of the shipyard, without seeing their accounting documents.

                I talk about the financial problems of the shipyard because I clearly understand the organization, economy and functioning of any production facilities, and in the technological part I have a thorough understanding of construction and woodworking, I have such a job and have a lot of experience. Salary costs, for example, in prime cost range from 8-14%, on average, taxes and various mandatory contributions from 25 to 65%, depending on the country. Typical profits in heavy industry are in the amount of 5-17% higher you do, you just do not sell the product, it will be expensive. The above can only be in construction (in the most kosher legal cases, up to 25%, in illegal and up to 60%), pharmaceuticals and drug trafficking (which is also, in principle, pharmaceuticals) can be from 10% to 1000%, in the energy sector profit can be from 3 up to 60% (everything is very complicated and confusing here, since tariffs for industrial sectors and consumers are not only different, they differ by season and time of consumption, the devil will break his leg there).
                As for big money, then you think it wrong. You consider them at the level of a small layman and his wallet. In business, everything is considered different. For example, the same Mistrals have been ready for more than a year, i.e. 1,2 billion euros hangs in the air, this money is not invested in the subsequent turnover, i.e. not received from them (1,2 billion euros multiplied by 1,1 (let's say 10% of the profit, we take so little that would not upset our French partners) = 1,32 billion euros, we consider the lost profit: 1,32 billion - 1,2, 120bn = XNUMXmln Euro - these are the most direct losses of the shipyard at the very minimum. If you add more legal services and dismantling costs and transportation costs, then millions of losses continue to grow every month. This figure can be easily multiplied by two, since these ships hovered for at least another year.

                I gave you the typical numbers above.
                For your information, from what you ask in the contract there are only payment terms and delivery dates for the goods or services, as well as penalties (penalty) in case of violation of these same terms. Costs are taken into account in the planned costing for products, which are a purely internal document of the organization and are not subject to disclosure, although it is not a secret. This value is aggregated based on the experience of the operation of a particular enterprise (because it depends on the material intensity, energy intensity of the degree of mechanization of production and many other factors). If you are interested, then at any enterprise for 0,5 liters any economist from the planning department will give you a detailed calculation for any product of this enterprise (he really won’t understand why, but he will give it). It just won’t give a darma, but there’s another reason - just in case, you never know what you’re up to. Find the typical costing on the Internet, practice the production economics, this is interesting.

                    What will the cost of materials and the size of the fines give you? Show you the cost of the "Mistral" or what? You are attached to something, but it doesn’t apply to business, I showed you how to calculate direct losses, in fact, nothing more is needed. Think about these lines again:
                    In business, everything is considered different. For example, the same Mistrals have been ready for more than a year, i.e. 1,2 billion euros hangs in the air, this money is not invested in the subsequent turnover, i.e. not received from them (1,2 billion euros multiplied by 1,1 (let's say 10% of the profit, we take so little that would not upset our French partners) = 1,32 billion euros, we consider the lost profit: 1,32 billion - 1,2, 120 billion = XNUMX million euros - this is the most that there are direct losses of the shipyard at the very minimum

                    About 0,5 and economists and about costing, I will not explain anything. You and simpler things still do not understand.
                    You remind me of Starikov, he also talks about everything, but he doesn’t understand anything specifically, so just slogans and general phrases without specifics come out.

    Russia allowed the French to poke around in more than 11 20-ton containers of our military equipment?

      There is nothing top-secret in those containers. Everything that does not need to be declassified, should have been installed already in Russia.

    Most likely no. Under the terms of the contract, France, in place with the Mistrals, was to transfer a complete set of technical (executive) documentation. Well, since the deal failed, it is unlikely. Specifications for materials, steel grades, technology. These are all things calculated, given that the internal structure of the building and the plan of the premises are redesigned to our requirements. Let's just say, not a typical performance.

    The French are whores who have tarnished us and their heads with these Mistrals. Let only ours decide what else to buy, order from them. I will laugh for a long time.

    And I’m even glad, to be honest! We ourselves know how to build .. It’s easier to buy, of course, but such a farce-walrus can happen (as with Ukraine)! Everything is going fine ...

    I especially liked the phrase "Fars-major" ... You can’t say more precisely! From the heart, plus))))

    In this scenario, Russia is given the role of a counterweight to Iranian influence, which will allow the Anglo-Saxons to focus on countering China.

    Here I do not agree with you)))
    The fact that the mattresses will oppose China is, of course, an indisputable fact, but the fact that the mattresses so easily assign Russia the role of a counterweight to Iran, here you gave a blunder.
    The question is, why then did the United States rock the whole region for so many years? In order to ditch Hussein and Gaddafi, thousands of their soldiers and a diplomat, rocking Syria, spawning ISIS and investing in it hundreds of millions of dollars to transfer the flag of the leader in the Russian region?
    I do not see the logic.
    Zigzag with Mistral, for mattresses was important in terms of demonstrating its influence in Europe and nothing more. The fact that this project was beneficial for Russia only in terms of obtaining technologies and no more, is also a fact.
    Everyone understands that their further use would be burdensome for the budget of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, and therefore the feint with the ears from Hollande with the refusal of their transfer was perceived with "understanding" i.e. with a sigh of relief. Note that Russia did not file a lawsuit to pay a penalty. The French returned the funds actually spent, dismantled the equipment at their own expense and paid for the delivery of the equipment to the owner.
    Here recently, Oland said that he was counting on cooperation with Russia in shipbuilding and receiving orders from it !!!
    Is Vorpros a joke or schizophrenia?

    Subtle French humor? Glamorous)))))
