Ice-resistant self-propelled platform "North Pole" - a unique vessel in its purpose. In fact, this is a polar station with the functionality of a research and development center that will drift in the Arctic Ocean for two years without entering the port.

The vessel is designed to conduct geological, acoustic, geophysical and oceanographic research; it is capable of passing through ice without the involvement of an icebreaker, as well as taking on board heavy helicopters of the Mi-8AMT (Mi-17) type.

   LSP will provide comfortable and safe working and living conditions for the crew and scientific personnel at the polar station at temperatures up to -50 ° C and 85% humidity.

/.../

   Main technical characteristics of LSP: length - 83.1 m; width - 22.5 m; displacement - about 10,390 tons; power plant - 4200 kW; speed - not less than 10 knots; hull strength - Arc8; autonomy in terms of fuel reserves - about 2 years; service life - at least 25 years; crew - 14 people; scientific staff - 34 people.

   Despite Zelensky's order, the Nikolaev Shipyard will not be able to complete the Vladimir Veliky corvette due to the lack of technical capabilities.

   About this on Friday, December 18, said the director of the "Nikolaev shipbuilding plant" Valery Kalashnikov, write NikVesti. According to the director, it is impossible to transfer the unfinished corvette body from the Black Sea plant to the Nikolaev shipbuilding plant for further completion. - It is impossible to transfer the state defense order (for the construction of a corvette - approx.) To the territory of our plant. Impossible due to weight characteristics, it is technically impossible. If it is completed, it will only be possible to implement it on the territory of the Black Sea Shipyard, ”said Valery Kalashnikov.

   Recall that the program for the construction of four corvettes with a total cost of about $ 2 billion provided for the launch of the first of them - "Vladimir the Great" - in 2015. The ship was laid down at the Black Sea Shipyard in 2010. It is known that by 2021 the Navy wanted to receive a total of four "corvettes". The total amount of financing for the ship construction program was 16.22 billion hryvnia.

   Good material for big strong dog vs small weak dog meme, Ukraine in Soviet times vs modern one, heh.

A 12 year construction time? They’re going to be obsolete by the time they leave the docks. 

 

I think it has partly to do with the Suffren class still being built. The first of its class (Suffren) only launched last year and is still in trial while number 2 and 3 (Duguay-Trouin and Tourville) are being built right now. There are 3 others to build after that and the whole program is already 3 years late IIRC. The last ship of the class, Casabianca, should have been laid down in 2020.

 

The building where they are being assembled can only hold 2 full length hulls at the same time while the sections are constructed elsewhere before being welded together.

The naval shipyard where our subs are being build is  kinda small scale compared to what the US has at it's disposition. Shortly puts there are plenty of potential bottlenecks, especially with programs running late.

Pretty neat close up look at Sovremennyy-class destroyer.

 

one of the guest of the show a former commander of the ship mention (take it with a grain of salt) that the main gun was able to shoot a P-15 termit cruise missile using the AK-630 FCS, cool to know the interchangebilty of the system
