    Photo report from the first presentation of Toros and Kolun armored vehicles family. Vehicles were developed by the Consortium "INTRALL" and UAMZ Group.
    During the presentation the developers showed three versions of the prospective family: basic amphibious modification, commander open-top vehicle and medic variant.
    Kolun vehicles family were developed on ZIL- 131 chassis. Currently Kolun vehicles exist in 2 variants: 4x4 and 6x6.

    Just curios, why these vessels are so rusty? They don't have regular maintenance period for removing it and keep all ships clean?

    These ships belong to Baltic fleet and Northern fleet, so they had a very long voyage to Syria during which they got that rust.

    Never seen US ships with such signs of corrosion. Does it mean they have more durable and better coating\paint?

    You mean US Navy PR specialists never show you rust? US vessels after long journeys in south seas looks the same.

    LOL. Worst excuse ever.

    The LST is rusty because it has been tied up portside for a long period with poor maintenance and seamanship.

    No they don't. Tropical seas (which you don't get in Russian Navy operating areas) cause different types of issues. The long rust streaks down the side where water is pumped overboard are indicative of long periods tied up without any attempts to keep the ship clean.

    Salt water + metal = rust stains. Noone is exempt.





    Also, stains are not a big deal. The bad thing is when you have persistent galvanic corrosion in a ship. That points to a bad design rather than regular wear & tear.

    Rust forms even on our ships during deployments, even just a month or two in, it will show. Hell on my last cruise they were 'testing' this new flight-deck non-skid. Was SUPPOSED to be cheaper/better/etc. But it ended up just chipping off far easier, making large parts of the deck/hangars look like ****, and adding to rust in some areas. Also every port we pulled into the BMs that were on duty would spend much of their time on the side of the boat PAINTING. AFAIK we don't have some magical elixir of a paint that doesn't require any further maintenance to stop rust. Pretty much paint it when you can... Rust will still eventually show up.

    anyway, TY artjomh

    Thanks everyone. Maybe it is a stupid question but... would it be too expensive to coat ships with zinc as it cars' manufactures do?
