From MARCO POLO through Harry:
"It was announced on May 22 that
the shipbuilding yard 'AS3' in Komsomolsk-na-Amure -- an industrial
city on the shore of the great Amur River in the Russian Far
East--launched a new corvette for the Pacific Fleet. The corvette is
named 'Sovershenniy'. The Russians say that she is the first warship
that a Far-Eastern yard is building for the Pacific Fleet in this
century, and also that it is the first time in the past 23 years that
this yard builds a ship for the Pacific Fleet."
This is a Steregushchiy class warship of which four others have previously been built. All others of the class: "are assigned to the Baltic Fleet."
Russia is and has been A PACIFIC POWER!
