It will take 7 more years for this? That's longer than a Yasin subarine.
They are making two together, and at 40K ton they are probably a little bigger and more complex than any Sub.
They will likely also have to develop landing ships, and perhaps they might need to coordinate its development with new high speed troop carrying helicopters.
Talk about putting the Mi-14 back into production is interesting, but would rather see them make a new helicopter based on the Mi-38.... the Mi-14 was basically a navalised Mi-8/17, so a navalised Mi-38 would make more sense than putting the Mi-14 back into production in my opinion.
Equally a new troop transport helicopter would be good... an improved Ka-29 with a rear ramp door as well as side doors for rapid troop deployment and recovery, with a pusher engine to boost flight speeds would be interesting.
Russia's shipyards have not been modernized post Cold War to be able to build a LHD at such speed.
Actually most of their shipyards have been upgraded specifically for the purpose of making new ships. Hopefully their production of Corvettes and Frigates will accelerate including the numbers of shipyards making ships because after a couple of years of making corvettes and frigates they are going to have to start laying down destroyers and get them moving forward too.
A more realistic timeline for launch of the first ship should be 2040 launch when the shipyard's capability is taken into considering and the launch of the second ship should be on schedule for 2050 to 2060 launch.
You can consider yourself warned.
I know I can be banned for calling someone a fucking idiot, but can I be banned for thinking someone is a fucking idiot?
I don't interpret the rules on member abuse the same when that member indulges in flame baiting and trolling.
It may be a steep learning curve but at some point down the road this shipyard will be in good enough shape to reliably handle construction of really big ships
That's when they will be given really important stuff to build
To be fair these ships should already have a design... they just need to construct them, which is no simple task, the number of steps that need to be performed in the correct order is mind blowing, but this is what they do.
