Has a full blue water force.
I would not define a major naval player as needing thousands of ships all over the place... 8 Borei class SSBNs would actually suffice in being able to remove any country from existence within a few hours of the order being given.
they are the only country with a decent icebreaking fleet.
The corvs are for off shore defense means and areas close to home.
The weapons it carries are standard weapons that will be carried by every new Russian vessel from Corvette to Cruiser... the fact that they can hit point land targets up to 2,500km from their launch position and also fire supersonic anti ship missiles... which in less than five years will include hypersonic anti ship missiles means nothing to you?
That I am not sure about I highly doubt A Sovremennyy can beat a British type 45
So what is so wonderful about the Type 45s? Harpoons are not a huge threat to Sovs, but Moskits might be an issue for Type 45s... have they worked out how to shoot down sea skimming missiles yet?
