You will refrain from personal attacks and insults to forum members.
I was in the wrong for calling him a moron given the new rules in place. Doesn't change how i feel about him.
I agree that this forum should not be one of nothing but Russia praising. But is also shouldn't be a Russia bashing one. I have never seen him say anything positive to say about Russia. Anybody who has sense knows what Arrow is up to. He is here to troll and doesn't even encourage objective discussion. He just post stuff like "armata is a fail cos they are not ordering more than 1000" (not his exact words,just rephrasing). When has he ever leaved up to the spirit of discussing/debating?
Same thing with Artiside. What has he done other than praise France in a forum about Russia? He has a right to criticize Russia all he wants but when has he ever tried to be at least objective?
Again, I agree with you, this forum should not be a Russia cock-sucking one nor should it be a Russia hating one. It works both ways,.
This is old submarines from the 80s. They are not better characteristic than new Chinese SSNs and they will be withdrawn around 2030
The new type 095 id probably level on 971U/M
Oscar II has two screws, two shafts so it's makes more noise from 971? So Russia are not many modern SSNs.
First Gorshkov M will be near in 2030. China at the same time, it builds 15 destroyers 052D and another few 055 Shocked The Russian navy will be a dwarf on Chinese.
Once again, China is supposed to have a larger navy than Russia.
Do you know China's population as compared to Russia's? Do you know how economically different they function? Have you seen the world map lately?
Your comparing apples to oranges. Chinese Navy actually has a bigger burden, if they truly ambition to match the US. Russia is smart not to do it, because they don't have that requirements hence Navy getting smallest budget from the 3 branches. I mean what exactly does Russia as of right now and the next 10-20 years, have to protect in the middle of the Indian ocean or the Pacific aside from broad, meaningless words like "interests'? Sure, interests are present there but nothing that justifies a carrier battle group patrolling there.
While your at it, why not criticize Russia for not having 20 carriers and 100 destroyers? You totally disregard requirements, given Russia's current situation and geopolitical world order, anyway.
Funny thing is that a stronger Chinese Navy is beneficial towards Russia. Only thing Russia needs to do is build enough gas and oil pipelines piercing through China! And with that, Chinese Navy is essentially an extension of Russian interest. Shocking
China will deal with the Western hegemony in theSCS, Pacific and Indian ocean while Russia deals with the European front. Heck without the senseless European Nato behavior, Russia would have only half of it's current Military requirements.
