    I know it is the biggest ship that they have, but calling a 4000 tons frigate a flagship seems a bit ridiculous...

    In addition the article mentioned (machine translated)
    Despite the fact that at the time of the first launch it was the optimal combat unit

    The optimal combat unit? It was a Krivak III class frigate built for the soviet coast guard. the Ukraine got it for free brand new... it was not a bad frigate in 1992 but I would definitely not have called it the optimal combat unit....

    Ukraine doesn't have any other better armed & bigger active ship, so it's a flagship by default.

    A I understand it the £1B is aid, think a gift. First 4 boats we make the other 6 are effectively assembled under license in Ukraine, I assume with same parts as first 4.

    It's not an aid. It's an investement to keep the war in the country.

    An aid is to help, not to destroy.

    Shocking news!!! The naval balance in the Black Sea has changed.

    The United States has transferred 20 new high mobility multi-purpose wheeled vehicles (HMMWV), aka Humvees, and 84 boats to the Ukrainian Armed Forces.The military equipment was supplied within the Ukrainian Security Assistance Initiative. “Nothing could stop the delivery of 20 Humvees to the Ukrainian Land Forces and Special Operations Forces along with 84 boats for the Ukrainian Navy as part of the Ukrainian Security Assistance Initiative,” the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv wrote on Twitter on January 15.

    OK, you don’t need to listen to Russian here, just turn the sound off and enjoy the visuals, solemnity and the geopolitical grandeur of this event.

    Not sure what the significance is of shots of F-15 in Carolina is.

    A bunch of old Zodiacs and some alu RIBs.

    At least the RIBs came with outboard motors, did the Zodiacs come with sets of oars? Laughing

    They should of replaced those RIBs with actual barbecue ribs, would of been more useful for hungry sailors.
