    Some models are there to show off the shipmaker's shipbuilding prowess, so you bring in something to boast about.

    There are three major shipyard locations.

    Severodonetsk which is past Murmansk and faces the Arctic Ocean. This place makes all the big nuclear subs.
    St. Petersburg, like you said, which made many ships including the Admiral Gorshkov class.
    In the Black Sea like Yantar shipyards, which made the Admiral Grigorovich class.

    In Yantar, the Russians are building two Admiral Grigorovich class for India, but India has to purchase the gas turbines from the Ukraine. A third ship will be built for the Russian Navy using Russian GT.

    You are right that the Ukrainian suppliers are going to be hurt for the lack of business and China does not import from them anymore, the last two engines went to the first two Type 052C. I won't be surprised they will start laying off and the people are going to Russia or China for employment.

    I don’t think engines is the only issue for Russia

    Building warships is expensive they simply don’t have the cash to build big warships anymore

    Not only that keeping them updated and upgraded is another

    Deployment is another

    Would it be better to quote your reply? Otherwise people will have a hard time knowing what you are referring to.

    If you refer to the displays on the other page, the big catamaran is a proposed frigate for export, the small one seems to be a corvette.

    1:45 scale model of Tan Suo Yi Hao, or Explore One, at the 6th Mianyang Technology Expo. It's an ocean research vessel and the mothership of the new manned submersible Shenhai Yongshi, or Deep Sea Warrior.

    Length: 94.45m
    Beam: 17.9m
    Full-load Displacement: 6250 metric tons

    I'm not certain how to translate the terms "2级动力定体系统" and "定点作业", which might impact the following translation:
    Capable of fixed-position(?) operations in sea state 6; can safely and reliably deploy manned or unmanned submersibles as well as operating deep sea-floor/sea-bed machines (remote controlled robots?).

    I think "动力定体系统" should translate as Dynamic Positioning System, but I'm unsure what "2级" actually implies.

    "定点作业" might mean "fixed-position operations", as in using the ship's thrusters and propellers to dynamically maintain a fixed position in order to safely deploy and operate a submersible.

    A scale model of the submersible Shenhai Yongshi (Deep Sea Warrior) is shown on the right.

    To add to DaTang cavalry's post, here's an hour long video of a walk-through of the Xuelong 2 at dry dock.

    Xuelong 2 icebreaker is in the water (technically her dry dock has been flooded).

    What does China-re mean ?

    Hopefully they will use modified Z9 helicopters and not a Russian one

    Nothing worse than China leading R&D with Russian chopper flying around in the background

    Puts whole image at stake
