    So they planning to refit all of their Slava's, Kirovs and Udaloys plus Sovremennyy's?

    i have the same wonder Question

    Given the fact they have yet to finish the Marshal Ustinov they put her in at 2011 right?.

    Not to mention the Tigr and Leopard have been in refit since 2011, the Stormy 2012.

    I have serious doubts they can finish the 15 destroyers, the two remaining Kirov's (unsure if they will refit Lazarev, the slava, the aircraft carrying cruiser.

    Not to mention they want to refit all their Pikes all 10 and haven't finished one yet. The four Sierra's not one is done ether. The eight Oscar's which one isn't done yet.

    Plus build all the stuff they are currently building and plan to.

    I have serious doubts, their ship building industry can pull such a tall order off.

    At the pace they are going zero point in refitting has these ships by the time they get them done they could just build something to replace them.

    I mean hell combined with all the other ships, do they even have enough men to crew this many vessels?. Once you add up the corvettes, subs, support ships, the new frigate classes. The other ships they want to build

    I mean why update the old DD's if your just going to replace them? refitting them wmeans they plans to keep those things in service for a long time.

    Do they even have enough money to maintain such a massive fleet when combined with the newer stuff?

    @SeigSoloyvov

    It is more about maintaining fleet numbers than increasing them of we talk about retrofitting old ships.

    As for new stuff, keep in mind that they are building new shipyards in addition to expanding existing ones.

    Piranha, and Losharak are two small subs they operate... there are a few more including rescue subs.

    The above article compares numbers for the build times of various naval ships and submarines
    in the USA, Russia, Japan and Europe. Russia is doing quite well for a country coming out of
    one of the worst depressions in history during the 1990s (50% GDP drop).

    Well considering they needed to import almost 35% of the marine instruments, this is good idea... abit late, but better than never.
