I believe Hermes is not just one missile type, but a family of missiles with different launch platforms, ranges and purposes. Quoted ranges vary from 20 - 100 km.
We will know more if it enters service.
I feel bad for these soldiers. Hopefully there will be a change in the mindset of some of the officers who still think the soldiers are purely material that can be changed with new conscripts.
And to think i used to complain about waking up to 12 degrees Celsius indoors. These boys live under inhuman conditions.
First off - It is cold in Parts of Russia. Did they have boiler rooms in the past? No. But they used fire and tents. Sucks what happened, but seriously. With such a big nation like Russia, there is a larger chance of something going wrong.
Second - This is photos thread, start a new thread to whine about the issues.
Looks like Boiki is not going to be launched on the 3rd. Has not been brought out to the dry dock yet.
Saaaad Panda... Oh well, it will be here soon.
by the way what's the status of Soobrazitelny? still being outfitted or on trials? wonder if they'll commission it this year. Also, I'm looking at wiki and it says 3 Steregushy-class corvettes are expected to be launched this year - Boikij, Sovershennij, and Stojkij. If this happens, will be truly amazing. These projects have all bein laid down in 2006 so I suppose we should be seeing them soon.
