    thought you guys might want to hear something funny:

    yesterday Russians announced a strategy outline for their Nay until 2030:
    Yesterday at 9:17 PM
    what I missed at first was they say they want to be second just to the USN!

    the document can be downloaded in PDF: publication.pravo.gov.ru/Document/GetFile/0001201707200015?type=pdf

    point #41
    "Россия не допустит существенного превосходства военно-морских сил других государств над Военно-Морским Флотом и будет стремиться к его закреплению на втором месте в мире по боевым возможностям."

    I'm curious what the official translation would be, my off-handed is:

    "Russia won't allow its Navy to be significantly surpassed by naval forces of other countries, and will aim at securing the second biggest [naval] combat capabilities [in the world]."

    just LOL

    If the deadline is 2030 and the goal is "second biggest" navy in the world then they are not planning to be behind China but rather behind the US, as at that time the US will still have a healthy lead over every other navy, including China's.

    Wonder if they're talking about by vessel count or tonnage, or a more abstract quality like firepower.

    A Borei-class submarine probably has more firepower than the entire Chinese Navy. :eek:

    Of course such assessment methodology leaves out a few details. ;)
