Yes, but notably not a rehashed Ulyanovsk

I would've thought Russia would aim for a smaller, cheaper carrier so that they could afford to field enough (3-4) to be militarily useful, as opposed to a glorified status symbol. No doubt PAK FA operations would be greatly eased with a larger carrier, but then I am sceptical that we will ever see a navalised PAK FA.

We hear rumors from time to time that China purchased the rights to the Ulyanovski Design. Wonder if there is any truth to it???

Looking at the design of the T-50, where would an arresting hook fit? It seems like the addition of one would require at the least reducing the size of the aft weapon bay - or making two narrow bays on either side of a hook. Or it could hang out past the tail sting, assuming that area is strong enough to withstand the landing forces if a hook is attached there.

I know it is a crude thing to say but looking at that cruiser it makes me think Russia really knows how to make one menacing looking warship just like Apache looks like a menacing attack helicopter.

Nine frigates, instead of the planned six, are going to build for the Russian Navy at the Baltic Shipyard / COR / "Yantar" in Kaliningrad. The Deputy Director of the United Shipbuilding Corporation / USC / Jacob care. He has taken part in a solemn ceremony at the "Yantar" next, the fourth case of a series of frigates of Project 11356 , built here for the Navy Russia.

So, it seems there might be more orders coming in for 11356s.

It will be interesting to see the final product. As I assume it will have a number of Russian Hardware in place of some French Equipment.

Nicely uncluttered design.

It's a beauty for sure.
I actually think the foreward gun will ruin the smooth lines somewhat, when it is mounted.

In other news, 3rd 885, the Novosibirsk, is laid down.
And the second 20385 @ Severnaya.

"If a SSBN shoot a SLBM under the Artic iced sea, what happens:
a) the missile breaks the ice and reaches its target;
b) the missile breaks the ice but doesn´t reache its target;
c) the missile explodes against ice."

I took that question from other website because I thought it was interesting. I remember reading decades ago that it can be done, so, the answer is A, but does anyone know how thick ice can be broken by a SLBM?

I also remember reading article some years ago stating that Russia had launched SLMB under ice. I don't think it was the one below but it stated the same things than this one.
