Yeah … Such a reason to kick the people who are doing something for the sake of recovery of, and against the background of sound itself, and in the eyes of others higher, better, bolder and smarter)))
Always and at all times, it was easy and comfortable read: "And you're doing is wrong, wrong!" But do these people do nothing "as necessary" (in their glory) did not. As the saying goes, "teachers divorced" (c)
Our economy, like the Soviet economy, aims not only to domestic markets, and on the exterior: Europe, America, Middle East, Far East, South America and, of course, the United States. And not only the raw materials, like it's not funny sounds. Purchases of raw materials is always less profitable than its prey. That's why segodnyaschy Our homeland and the Soviet Union is mined and extracted various raw materials and natural resources around the world, both in Africa and in Latin America. Today Russian companies have stretched their tentacles into many primary regions of the world. And taking care of our country to provide them the opportunity to work there for the revenue from taxes and profits to the state budget. A simple example, hike our squadron to Venezuela. Yes there is, with Venezuela and to all those region, such turnover that even the "poor" Americans in the afternoon, and not just roll over and NIGHT MODE bite your elbows!
But, for us, because it is difficult to understand and appreciate. The main thing to say that all in vain! And the Russian Alliance in Africa blacks helped build socialism, but did not fill the country's foreign exchange reserves and rare minerals mined, or that we did not have or was not much, or we were not that clean! It's the economy, in which "at least some criticism understands even a housewife."
Foreign economic interests of our country akin to the interests of modern France, with its neo-kollonialnoy policy.
In Africa, the Soviet Union then handed over their positions, then sought tremendous results. Let us remember the war in Angola. The one that went to the area of Namibia. And because of that the prices of our diamonds are creeping up, and "De Beers" almost ruined. Either the war in Ethiopia. When she broke out with 2 between the socialist countries — Ethiopia and Somalia. Large deposits of manganese — open-pit and the purity of the breed. It was skazachno. I had to send in 1976-78 there has not Cubans with our advisors, and the Marines! The Marines did such tasks to protect the economic and political interests of our country in Egypt, Syria, Angola, Guinea, Yemen, Ethiopia, Vietnam and many other countries. She then showed what a our fleet. Since the beginning of the 60s of the Navy Marine Corps participated in about 100 military campaigns. Not really, someone at this time may reflect that the Marine Corps RF, has long been contracted for the most part, does not make puzzles for the protection of political and economic interests of our country in Latin America, the Gulf of Mexico, Central Africa and the Middle East.
Navy ships ekskortiruyut and are on duty in the most piratoopasnyh regions of the World Ocean. And it is not just for Navy ships are there their service. Accompanying the convoys is receiving the money in the coffers of our country or of the owners of vessels or from the insurers.
In short, the activities of ships and units of the Russian Navy now — including work directly for the profit of the state! The fight against piracy and escort convoys or landing Marines to ensure the safety of our people.
And specifically, the ships of the project BPC-160, better known in Russia named head combat unit of this type — "Mistral" let go or to climb to a new level of ability Marines RF capture and detain a foothold in a foreign shore! Almost "Mistral" will be a real floating military base capable of producing ground operations with the support of the heavy equipment and aircraft.
Mistral — Is a vehicle for implementation of distant ocean trips, tools of foreign policy of our country. Therefore, the purpose of the same thing as the French — in other words, forwarding acts plus management naval forces as headquarters ship.
Quote: "Russia — permanent members of the UN Security Council, and that status imposes certain obligations to our country, that is, for her role in international humanitarian operations, peacekeeping operations, rescue, evacuation, counter-terrorism and anti-piracy operations. In this sense, the comparability of information systems with NATO Russian Mistral such systems will come in handy. On the basis of the designated tasks, you can imagine that it would be more correct to base the Mistral, on-1's, the Pacific, and in-2-in Sevastopol. Out of the Dark Sea easier hike to Sredizmemku and from there into the reddish and the Arabian Sea — the center of pirate activity. Far Eastern zone of action Mistral, respectively, will be the Pacific Ocean, the Straits in Southeast Asia (also, incidentally, the zone of excessive pirate activity) and on the Indian Ocean. "
UDC, in other words, amphibious assault, there is still only in the United States, France, Spain and South Korea, Holland, and even the Spanish built for Australia. And, obviously, the Italian aircraft carrier "Cavour" (able to be used and how to transport for delivery to hangar military equipment — up to 50 BMP «Dardo» or 100 light-terrain vehicles «Iveco LMV». Perform this tasks installed in the aft ramp. Not In addition, the aircraft carrier "Cavour", can make the function of the command-staff and the ship's infirmary.) All other countries have ships (or plans of acquisition) in the home with a much more modest features — landing helicopter dock ships or amphibious transport docks . And this is precisely the difference that DKVD TDR and usually there is the least adapted for long expeditionary tasks. In other words, it's not the ships' long presence in distant waters, "and almost always only" transport and landing. " That is, as we have in the BDK "landing napping in hammocks hung between technology" (c). This means that the similarity of the species, their other tasks, and it's faster just very large troop-carrying ships. Specifically, it should almost always secondary States, not the solution expeditionary tasks.
And here, Having such a fairly large selection, our government dared to associate themselves with France. "Why" — here and now completely rhetorical question!
From our point of view, basic and fatal shortcoming of all of these ships is the presence of American military systems, making them not just buy a very risky, and in fact the mystical. Even if the present impracticable — the consent of the U.S. administration to re-export of these subsystems in Russia, the transaction must be blocked by Congress. So the choice in favor of the French — is enforced and the only plausible solution. Do not forget that France, together with Germany and Italy is more cooperative, if not to say friendly toward Russia. In general, the Mistral — it's mostly a political than military-technical choice.
And techno benefit from acqui
ring enormous. After all, we do not buy an empty box with an inscription from the side "Mistral". We buy the ship "Mistral", ie Full stuffing. And not only stuffed on most I can, and with license to build in Russia at all, that it is set!
One clever person so described the "Mistral":
"The technology is not difficult to copy the assembly, but the build or upgrade an existing infrastructure — is a thing of the Russian Federation and grandmother would cost was not measured. A major technologies Mistral — electrics, electronics and command post — to the Russian Federation if they wanted to with my knees not to build in the coming years.
And about the fact that we also have the same BDK, again I say — not just BDK Mistral, and like we have in Russia and in the USSR, we did not have (well, might be at the level of models).
— Automated absolutely ship, crew — 180 people.
— 16 spins — the hyper-modern hospital with 750 square meters, can be increased by helicopter hangar on the modular principle. To 100 l / s nurses, 12 from their doctors. Evrogorodishki average level of 40 thousand inhabitants.
— French first "all-electric" ship.
— partly built according to civilian evronormam wagon
— command ship, with not a small amphitheater on the CP-900 square meters, the massive server computing to 160 cable stations, 6 networks ADSL, satellite and high infoshinoy. This will enable Mistral as the main command ship which superior in this AV on the head and can not command the only naval connections (AB, NS, AUG) and even the main gearbox for combined arms operations, with all this for months.
— Small logistical support, a big step forward to the comfort of the crew, command, and landing that allows us to realize the full potential to:
— 5000 hours of continuous service, ie 210 days a year, may be extended to 350 days if needed! "
And yet … all or many have heard of the existence of a package deal. This is when one contract entails the implementation of a heap of other treaties. So that's — a contract for the purchase of "Mistral" is the package that will allow the Russian Federation legally get an unlimited number of Western technology, so even with a resolution for our designers to study, borrowing and recycle them!
I'm talking about cooperation with THALES. It is not only ASBU SENIT-9 and SIC-21, not only the radar and other shipboard equipment, and thermal sights for the third generation of our army (we have on the french license only executed tank sights of the second generation), the 'equipment fighter of the future " ((our designers have long been dreaming to analyze it and look at its integration in the "battle management system"), and look in detail at the integrated mast I-MAST one of our designers will not give up.
And getting the right technology for ship propulsion "Azipod" ship-building technology? The combined ship-building company in anticipation of the construction of the modern shipyard at o.Kotlin very interested in them. Those Nikolaev shipyard USC is not in order to show off silly in the end of it all, Ukraine and other scandals took and took away. Take away from Ukraine and arrange for o.Kotlin professionals and special equipment for the construction of large ships 200,000 tons.
The most unusual thing is that the conclusion of the contract on the "Mistral" provides the signing and implementation of agreements with the Italian "Iveco" for the production of Italian Lynx armored vehicles and the construction of car plant in Naberezhnye Chelny, also with the German company Rheinmetall Chempro the creation of our "light metal-ceramic" armor.
Here so … And many are saying and writing that is wrecking. According to these hacks can be treated only as a folly.
Director of the Center for Analysis of World Trade instrument (TSAMTO) Igor Korotchenko said a couple of months back: "access to their advanced technology will allow them to enter the Russian defense industry in the factories of the country."
Finally, there is a phrase which perfectly characterizes the very critics purchases of foreign technology in place of missing Russian technology, "we can do everything, but for some reason do not do anything …"
