The construction of Russian analogues "Mistral" failed

The construction of Russian analogues of the Mistral universal landing helicopter assault ship failed. Scheduled for June 29, 2020, laying in Kerch at the Zaliv enterprise transferred a pair of such ships, and the new date is unknown.

Bookmarks will not be on June 29th. She is transferred. The exact date has not been set, it is still floating. The plant is ready for laying

- reported TASS source in the Russian shipbuilding industry.

Before that, in March 2020, from the Zaliv shipyard, they informed the public that the modernization of production facilities was completed at the enterprise. New welding, turning and other equipment was installed, which will help to increase the efficiency of production processes by three times.

In May 2020, it became known that the Russian Ministry of Defense signed a contract for the construction of the two UDKVs for a total of about 100 billion rubles. Then it was promised that the laying of the ships would happen "in the coming weeks."

It should be added that the Russian shipbuilding project was called “Surf”. New ships should receive the names "Sevastopol" and "Vladivostok." Each displacement can be about 25 thousand tons. The dimensions of the ships will be 230 m in length and 40 in width. They will be able to take on board 900 marines, carry 75 units equipment and 6 landing boats, and also carry about 20 helicopters.

    - Yes, it's time to start talking about this kind ... - "And why do we need these ersatz-Mistrals; yes, we do not need them; but why do we need them; yes, we have nowhere to use them ... etc .. ." - etc...
    - "Yes, these grapes are both green and sour, and will not do us good ... and we will not eat it ...." etc ...
    - In short ... - I personally do not want to retell the fable of I.A. Krylov "Fox and Grapes" ... Read it yourself ... - Hahah ...

      Before building helicopter carriers, you need to build escort ships for them, and it looks like the leadership of the Russian fleet has finally come to the right conclusions. I will give only what is in open sources. To replenish the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation, they are preparing to send two corvettes of the project 2380 Zetivy and Strogiy, and it is planned to sign a contract for the construction of 4 more such corvettes for the Pacific Fleet of the Russian Federation. The frigate of project 22350 "Admiral Isakov" under construction is planned to be sent to strengthen the Black Sea Fleet, the laying of 2 new frigates of project 22350 is being prepared, with the laying in this year. Corvette Rezkiy, project 20380, and 2 corvettes of project 20385, Thundering and Provorny, will also go there. This year, the Pacific people will receive a new corvette of project 20380 Aldar Tsidenzhapov. Project 22350 frigates Admiral Chichagov and Admiral Amelko will also go there after completion. The Northern Fleet will be replenished with Project 22350 frigates "Admiral Golovko" and the already built frigate "Admiral Kasatonov".

    As I understand it, neither the author of this opus, nor the experts who have already noted here, know the differences between laying and building the ship.

    Some of the guests of honor could not come, or by what date did they decide to coincide?
    Screw the plate a week later, not much difference.

    So what, is that the laying of the Russian Mistral is delayed due to coronavirus?

    How did it go wrong? For six months we were proud of how we did the French, and here it is on you.

      Who are you and why were you proud? They are building and building, are they building new weapons in our country lately? This is a normal process, nothing heroic, as it should be. Let the Ukrainians be proud of the fact that the Americans promised to fit a pair of old galoshes, for Russia it is not necessary, we can do it ourselves.
      Are you involved in development or construction? Or is there too much free time on vacation? The task of "getting the French out" was hardly set by anyone, to whom they surrendered, the frogs.

    The author should read the meaning of the words "plucked" and "delayed" in the dictionary. Although, here, apparently, deliberate twitching.

    I don’t understand that everyone clung to the Mistral? There is no such class of ships - Mistral.
    There is a class of ships - amphibious helicopter carrier, most of them in the United States. In the USSR, there was a class of combat cruisers - helicopter carriers, for example, "Moscow". The US Navy did not have this type.
    In the USSR, there was a class of aircraft-carrying strike cruisers (TAVKR) of project 1143, for example, "Kiev". The USA did not have this type of ships.
    The United States needed landing helicopter carriers for the Marine Corps, as The United States constantly fought with someone from Papuan and they need means of massive landing of marines. Therefore, their helicopters were transport.
    In the USSR, they did not set goals to colonize, so all helicopters were combat attack.
    The difference between aircraft-carrying cruisers and aircraft carriers is that the cruiser has not only an air group of planes and helicopters, but also the armament usual for the cruiser.
    The aircraft carrier is a self-propelled barge with an airfield, without weapons, except for aviation. Therefore, the aircraft carrier itself will never go to sea without 8-12 guard ships.
    Now the Russian Federation wanted to get hold of the landing helicopter carriers, which means they needed them for some plans. And there is nothing interesting here HOW they will build them. Much more interesting, but where will they be used? There is someone to be puzzled.

    Maybe it's for the best that they've been slowing down for now. We need half as many UDCs, but twice as many, with the maximum possible fleet of attack helicopters. For the sea transport of large forces and heavy equipment, guarded convoys of civilian ships are used, and large "landing troughs" of 2 BTG each are an unaffordable luxury with the loss of 2 out of 1.

    The construction of Russian analogues "Mistral" failed

    For the first domestic helicopter carriers Vladivostok and Sevastopol began to select crews consisting of sailors, aviation representatives and marines. This is reported by Izvestia.
    A complete teaming of the team will be completed by 2022, when a training program for the preparation of the team will be developed.
    It is expected that the UDC will be laid at the Zaliv NW by the end of 2020.

    Whoever believes in this, give me +

    There is no money, but you hold on.
  14. I just watched a movie about 4 world. war - so there the North Koreans destroyed the entire amersky fleet with one atomic bomb! And there were 4 aircraft carriers and a bunch of small ships! And tell me, sir, Moremans, why do you need a fleet at all?
