    Sorry mate I can't find any of your posts from before 2014 saying Russia should spend billions of dollars developing their own replacements for stuff they buy from other countries... it must have been deleted, but would ask where all the money to fund those replacements was supposed to come from...

    This video confirms that the Project 22160 is intended for anti piracy and peace keeping operations...

    It also mentions that for policing duties and longer endurance it is intended to be rather more comfortable and perhaps less well armed than other projects.

    That would probably make it better suited to operating in the Black Sea Fleet or even Tartus to make transit times to the coast of Africa and trips through the med shorter and faster.

    The new support ships they are building could also be sent with replacement crews and supplies to allow more time on station getting the job done and less time wasted in transit.
