    Chinese engine broken after just few months....

    Solution could not be simpler: take purchase receipt, call Chincoms and ask the for refund or replacement.

    Easy...

    Also, why the heck are they still importing these diesels? It's been over 4 years already....

    There was a report about problems in the Russian Navy... I am surprised you haven't read it yet... it mentioned that many diesels still use foreign components but things are getting better... if anyone could do it they would...

    It seems to be pretty clear that the Chinese copies of German diesels are not perfected yet... I don't think they would screw the Russians on purpose, but making modern durable components is not easy... it is not merely a case of reproducing the parts and assembling an engine... clearly they need to work further on their materials design... and so does Russia... so a period of problems can be expected, but once they are producing world class or perhaps even better parts then the problem can be considered dealt with.

    I would just like to thank the US and EU for taking the albatross of the Ukraine off Russian shoulders and of course for sanctions that mean German companies wont make money selling lots of products to the Russian military... some Russian company will get that job eventually.

    We had similar problems here in New Zealand... we wanted new rail cars as we are doing up our long neglected railways... they chose the slightly cheaper option of buying Chinese instead of paying a local company for the contract... they saved 25 million they told us... of course when the new rail cars arrived they were insulated with asbestos so they had to be immediately be sent back and replaced... so delays and problems ensued.

    If we had spent a little more and built them ourselves no only could we make more if we need any, but we could also maintain them locally and all that money would have remained in our economy instead of going to China... I am sure someone got a really good bribe out of it...

    This is what I love about Coast Guard: have problems with one ship class? Double down on others instead of waiting for decades for faulty ones to get fixed thumbsup

    Almaz laid down two more 22120 patrol icebreakers (Purga-class)

    Names are Zabaikalye and Taymir.

    It also looks like two original ones have finally been given proper names instead of numbers ('Контр-адмирал Колчин' and 'Контр-адмирал Дианов')
