    The shipyard in Kerch build large tankers and bulk carriers in the 70´s and 80´s.

    Yes actually it would make sense also to move the production of assault amphibious ships/helicopter carriers to the black sea shipyard in Nikolaev once it is properly rebuilt, as I wrote in one of the posts above.
    Kerch Shipyard could concentrate on massive civilian ships from the drydocks and maybe on frigates or smaller ships from the boathouses (as it did in soviet times).

    Looks like the new date is May for this ship to sail. Interesting tidbit is it will be equipped with 80 missiles (Kalibre/Tsirkon) That would be quite a clout even without the air wing.

    No mention of the replacement of Kashtan CIWS with navalised Pantsir.   dunno

    The discussion of the 10x UKSK looks to be about the Nahkimov, not Kuz.
