The class isn't useless.
As expensive as a Gorshkov. Totally useless.
I believe an admin said it best towards you Something about a very simplistic mindset with naval operations.
If you think this class is useless you really don't know as much as you think you do.
For the Record
Gorsh - 260M
Merc - 230M
Hey genius, 260 ~= 230. But Gorshkov has two times more missiles. 2 times better radars. And is probably 10 times better to have it instead of this shitty expensive and useless corvette.
They are so mature they will soon be obsolete
SAM system is Shtil which was pretty much bare basic when ships were built and time will not be improving it's prospects
And there is never fundamental truth that remains unchanged and one that killed the whole class at 3 hulls: THERE ARE NO ENGINES FOR IT (and never will be)
Buk has newer missile today. It's not the same system as on the soviet Sovs destroyers. They even have the buk-M3 active radar missile with 70km range. They also pack more missiles than redut for the same space.
They are good ships but I agree when you have the Gorshkov and no engine for it, you don't choose to build more of it.
