Those ships could also be used for electronic intelligence gathering to spy on regional neighbors. If anything the Naval SAM umbrella would help clear up the skies for Syria for the time being.

The new Russian destroyer.
Putin himself helped design it, and 20 are to be built before 2020.

This is just a model of paper ;)
And the cruiser - a huge, the same as the "Kirov".

Just playing Paralay :p

Though knowing Putin, he probably thought it was the new destroyer.

Interesting concept.
Does the weight balance out?
The gun mount and engine compartment seem to be all in the back. Does the VLS in the front weight that much?

Consider the hull form - aft beam is much wider than forward, so the distribution of buoyancy should also be biased toward the stern.

Putin asked if SU-35 was PAK-FA, he was probably asking if this is Gorshkov.

Hell of a lot of VLS there!:eek: Anyone have a count?

And is it nuclear-powered as was speculated?

Unfortunately, considering the status of the Gorshkov class, they'll be lucky to get even 3 commissioned before 2020. Too many newfangled gadgets to test.;)

Ok let me be clear.

I was joking.
That is some stupid model that has no actual relevance to the future Russian fleet.

Though an actual "superdestroyer" is being considered right now, which will be nothing like that monstrosity.

And thank god for that.

We might actually see a stratched Gorshkov sooner then any nuclear superdestroyer. Which you predicted I think TR.

Is there any word about the new corvette class that was supposed to have had displacement between 1000 and 2000 tons ? Or the planned rumoured new fast attack boat ?

Andy_UE mentioned the new corvette class to be LCS sounding by the description. If I recall right.

maybe it some misquote.
I think your underestimating Putin insights. see his Gold prediction.
http://goldinvestingnews.com/32091/russian-gold-buying-increases-almost-400-percent-under-putin.html

He also declared IL-476 is more than 70% new despite looking same like IL-76. so he believes in internals not just the shape.

Putin just declares what his aides write for him.
He really doesn't have an indepth knowledge of military equipment, and I don't think he is that interested in their specifics either.
