Six large ships per day: Russia shows impressive pace of development of the Navy

On Monday, July 20, for the first time in history, Russia laid down six warships at once, including nuclear submarines, as well as a “replacement” for French helicopter carriers Mistral. What advantages will the Russian Navy receive in the near future?

Let's start with the St. Petersburg Severnaya Verf, where the two newest frigates of the modernized project 22350 “Admiral Yumashev” and “Admiral Spiridonov” were laid down. The warships received increased displacement and enhanced armament, allowing the use of winged "Caliber" and "Onyx", as well as hypersonic "Zircons". At the same time, instead of Ukrainian gas turbine units, domestic units produced by NPO Saturn will be installed on both ships.

Two new multipurpose nuclear submarines Voronezh and Vladivostok of project 885M Yasen-M were laid down in Severodvinsk. Both submarines of the fourth generation completely consist of domestic components, have surface and underwater displacements of 8600 and 13800 tons, respectively, can dive to a depth of 600 meters and be autonomous for 100 days. The laid down submarines are capable of using all sea-based cruise missiles in service with the Russian Navy, including hypersonic ones.

Despite the fact that many did not believe in this, the first Russian universal amphibious assault ships Ivan Rogov and Mitrofan Moskalenko of Project 23900 Priboy began to be built at the Zaliv Crimean shipyard. According to the plan, domestic helicopter carriers will be manufactured no later than 2027. At the same time, the "Russian Mistrals" will be larger than their French "colleagues", which in 2015 we did not get because of the sanctions. One such vessel will be able to take on board up to 20 helicopters and two reinforced marine battalions.

It is worth noting that the construction of universal amphibious assault ships can give our specialists invaluable experience, which will undoubtedly be useful in the future when creating domestic aircraft carriers. At the same time, looking at the impressive pace of development of the modern Russian Navy, we can safely assume that there is still a lot of interesting ahead of us.

    Ukrainians themselves liquidate city-forming enterprises, for example. YuTZ in Nikolaev, and former workers are forced to go to Poland and pick strawberries there in order to earn a living. Maybe it was better to be friends with Russia and receive military orders from her in order to live at home, in a family and eat bread and butter?

      First of all, there was no need to separate from Russia and lick the ass of Russophobes of all stripes (Bandera, Basmachs and the like), in this situation, friendship with the Russian Federation is, in principle, not real, this is the path to a full-scale war with the Russian Federation.

      Anti-Russian Ukraine is a strategic US operation, and no "better friends" work. An anti-Russian (more often Jewish) government is set up (coup), and the state apparatus against Russia is spun, propaganda over the years creates Russophobia among the people ... So in all the former republics of the USSR and the Warsaw Pact countries, all are Russophobic, - the result of the US strategy for all 30 years after the collapse of the USSR ... Why did the Russian Federation not resist such an offensive, - the main liberals are to rob Russia, develop the army to protect their predatory policy and loot, the people are only a burden, therefore the poor and disenfranchised (courts, health care, education, small business, etc., optimized "not in favor of the people) ...

    It is possible to lay a hundred ships on the stocks, especially since we also consider boats to be ships. The main thing is, in how many years will the fleet receive these ships? And during this construction, will the laying of new ships (combat, not support) with a rank not lower than a corvette be carried out? Or will the fleet receive nothing else for the next 5-10 years?
    Support ships are also vital, but their construction should be carried out as needed and constantly.
