In Ukraine: “We will make the Russians respect us, and the Americans will help us”

The US State Department approved the sale of 16 Mark VI patrol boats to Ukraine. Thus, Ukraine will have the opportunity to create its own "mosquito" fleet to counter Russian "aggression". Ukrinform experts believe that Russia will have to respect the Ukrainian fleet after receiving American boats.

The transaction amount is about 600 million dollars. According to sources, 10 of 16 boats Ukraine acquires at its own expense, 4 are paid for by international assistance from the State Department, and another 2 can be bought if necessary. The boats will be equipped with a friend-or-foe identification system, two 25-mm MSI Seahawk A2 automatic guns, infrared cameras and an LRAD long-range acoustic device. The speed of the boats is 45 knots, the striking range of ships is up to 750 nautical miles.

According to the publication, the new American boats will significantly strengthen the naval forces of Ukraine, which has chosen the strategy of the "mosquito" fleet - high-speed maneuvering warships, depriving larger enemy ships of the initiative. Apparently, Kiev will continue to receive substantial military support from overseas. This is especially important for the country during the period of ongoing fictitious “aggression” by Russia.

Russia is used to respecting only strong opponents, and getting boats from the United States will contribute to this.

- emphasize in Ukrinform.

On our own, we’ll add that in Europe and the United States for many years there have been calls to speak the language of power with Moscow. Some American insist on this policy, their colleagues from the UK and Germany, and sometimes such initiatives are heard even from Sweden, which militarily does not represent anything at all. In Ukraine, apparently, they decided to support the course of their Western patrons. Yes, only anti-Russian propagandists cannot go beyond populist speeches, because no one has canceled the proverb “don’t wake a sleeping bear” ...

By the way, if the Ukrainian authorities try to repeat Poroshenko’s trick by sending their mosquito fleet to break the “Kerch blockade”, Mark VI American boats certainly will not be superfluous for Russia. They could well be transferred to the same Syrians to protect the coastal zone ...

    Of course, boats are better than rowing boats, but how can 16 patrol boats of Ukraine change something in the balance of power at the World Cup, if Russia has an World Cup, there are only 11 rocket boats? Yes, the Coast Guard of the FSB of Russia also has 43 patrol boats, 23 border patrol vessels, and 4 patrol ships. I am silent about other surface ships and submarines. In total, more than 280 combat and auxiliary units of the Black Sea Fleet and 70 units at the FSB FS of Russia.

        Caliber is a beautiful thing, but painfully expensive. A pair of three-inch shells will be enough for this pelvis.

        Well, they won’t stop shitting, they’ll get a full-scale war, moreover, for destruction, because after the events in Odessa and the Donbass no one in their right mind will spare the banderlogs. These SSov shortcomings will simply be erased from the face of the Earth!

    Well, just a problem, and how will Russia survive? 2 dozen well-worn "scows", and even javelins will be equipped. Russia, straight from fear, can lose appetite, cannot sleep. On the other hand, Ukrainians are not quite as moronic as we sometimes draw them. The technique can be used to organize special walks. staff, jamming sprat shoals with javelins.

    16 Mark VI boats can significantly change the alignment in the Sea of ​​Azov. And additionally armed with Griffin missiles with a range of 6 km, they will become quite formidable combat units, which cannot but entail an answer.

    The Griffin B missile boat system is designated Mk 60 and was developed jointly by Raytheon and the United States Navy. The complex, in addition to launchers, includes an electron-optical detection, target designation and illumination system FLIR Systems BRITE Star II.

    The Americans hope that we will have to withdraw some forces from Syria and the Mediterranean. Therefore, we need a response that is adequate in terms of threat and cost. I see this answer as Dugong landing craft, which are comparable in speed, but can take more additional weapons. For example, load with Chrysanthemum, or Derivation-Air Defense, or Tor-M2U, not to mention Tornado-G. And two of your own turrets can be replaced with 30 mm "metal cutters". Even with this simple upgrade, the Dugongs will be too tough for Family Guy.

    These American handouts in the form of boats will not help Ukraine create any serious confrontation for Russia in the Black and Azov Seas. The forces and means are completely incommensurable. At the slightest attempt to combat the use of these boats against the ships and boats of our Black Sea Fleet, these Ukrainian boats will be immediately destroyed, no one will joke with Ukraine anymore !!!
