    It's been a long time coming. Laid down in 2006. Commissioned today. A dozen years in the making. Delayed by a year due to Ukraine embargo of engine replaced by Russia made engine from NPO Saturn.

    Why would they? Russia made engines are way better than Ukraine made engines. Ukraine made engines are 1980s. Russia made engines are state of the art.

    Chinese and Americans build a carrier in the same time (actually faster) what it takes Russians to build a single frigate... this puts Russian destroyer/carrier dreams into perspective aka not gonna happen anytime soon.

    Don't need carriers. Russia only opponent is Qaeda fags. Russia ships and subs shoot Kalibr cruise missiles range 2500 km. Plenty enough range to strike anywhere in Syria from off the Syria coast.

    The newest Russia navy ships are actually quite small but packs a punch.

    Ukraine is still a reliable engine manufacturer, and continues to develop today

    True. But in terms of technology you cannot compare Ukraine to Russia.

    Russia made first space satellite, made first space suit, sent first man to space, did first space walk, made first space orbiter, made first space lander, made first space rover, made first space station, made first modular space station, made first fully automated space plane.
