It seems to state Palmas antey has issues with everything, but I am assuming its bullshit. 9m96 being bad performer, 40n6 not in service, etc. But it leads me to believe being garbage journalism cause 9m96 was in service for years and 40n6 was tested years ago as well.
It talks about issue with redut and shtil
Well it's either one of two things:
1) Standard missiles work but new ones still have issues.
2) Entire Redut platform is a failure because nothing works.
In first case we are talking about usual journalistic bullsh*t.
In second case entire Russian navy post USSR is one big useless white elephant that can be defeated and exterminated by any country that has access to jet powered combat aircraft.
And that this entire class of corvettes should have never been built in the first place (I do agree with this bolded part to significant degree) .
