      training intensity has increased significantly

      And the intensity of conversations about them has grown by orders of magnitude. It is time to renew the peace movement.

    Everything is correct. But why clog up the resource with the usual "work". If every ship starts reporting?

      there is generally how to look. What is more garbage. To read about the everyday insanity of Ukrainian colleagues or about the "shooting boat." Why are you asking such a report? ... this is ordinary propaganda. from everywhere, a little bit. From the news from the Internet and now .... you are already reflashed. And the majority hawala, and it seems to them that they all think with their own brains, but in fact they are slipping ideas.

    Look, dear comrades, how the emphasis on the Caspian theater of operations has shifted in thirty years. During the days of developed socialism, it was the most peaceful region. Around the Caspian-USSR, in the south Iran. And now? The most tense, in every sense and explosive region. The former quiet service in the Caspian military flotilla has long since sunk into oblivion.
    If anyone, forty or thirty years ago, had suggested that the Volga Region and the Caspian Flotilla would become the state's foremost border stronghold, they would have been sent to a psychiatric hospital for compulsory treatment ...

    Tugboat and refueling vessel are common practice.

    Simple practice? Tug and tanker ship? For a nanoship with a displacement of 500 tons and an autonomy of 10 days? Maybe it would be easier to attach it to the same tanker in a tugboat, and drag it along the "seas, okeyans" ?! He has an artillery mount and a Grad package as the "main caliber", there is no missile (air defense does not count). It is his place for the border guards in the Volga delta to drive poachers, and not to portray a "group with a tug" in the Navy! I did not understand and do not understand the need to order such ships. And there are more patrolmen on the way. It makes no sense, but ... ships!
