    Time to update the specs in the game

    400 missiles, of which 80 can be ASu. That's a heck of a lot of firepower.

    Or 80 ASW missiles.... or 80 LACM.
    If they just get a new, modern, long-range SAM system to fit on it then the Kirovs will be a mighty sight.

    Will there be any upgrade options in game? Because stuff like this would fit the bill perfectly.

    No upgrades as such, but we'll have different loadouts for ships (obviously for different missions; you can't change in-game).

    Yes, the diversity instead of "upgrades" sounds good. As long as we can customize ships, I am happy.

    Its about time the Russians got something similar to the Mk.41! 80 vertical launch cells which have the ability to hold ASuW, ASW, or land attack missiles will greatly increase the capabilities of those ships.

    Indeed, 20 Shipwrecks can only do that much. And what ships carry the Mk.41 BTW.

    186 ships and 19 ship classes, in 11 navies around the world. The system currently serves with the US, Australian, Canadian, Dutch, German, Japanese, New Zealand, Norwegian, South Korean, Spanish, and Turkish navies. It's also perhaps going to find its way into the Type 45 to replace the SYLVER A50 though the SYLVER A70 looks more likely.

    No problem, was largely copy-pasted anyway!

    Sweet. Except I have to redo the kirovs again.

    But, there is a new article about a Russian something or other being upgraded every two weeks, and 90 % of them are retracted a month later.

    Yeah, dont take it too serious.
    But you can be sure that it will carry Onyx and Kalibr. S-400 can mean anything and the point-defense weapons could be naval Pantsir which is in the works. One cant be sure at all though.

    Yes, it's just the brass talking out of their asses again... or it's an attempt to spread disinformation to the foreign intelligence agencies. Sometimes feeding a lot of junk info to the enemy is better than keeping one secret.

    S400 (naval variant) means use of better guidance set (92N6 variant), better missiles (48N6DM with 250 range 9M96D with 150 range 40N6 with 400 km range)
