For the first time in Russian Navy's contemporary history, designers and shipbuilders arrived to Baltiysk at the invitation of Baltic Fleet Commander Viktor Chirkov to attend a 2-day seminar and outline the appearance of a future ship, reported Baltic Fleet Press Service.

Directors of JSC United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC), JSC Zelenodolsk Design Bureau, JSC Nevskoye Design Bureau, JSC Almaz Central Design Bureau for Marine Engineering, JSC Severnoye Design Bureau, representatives of Department of Shipbuilding Industry and Marine Engineering, and officers of Navy Chief Command participated in the meeting.

Twenty five general directors and chief designers of Russia's leading design bureaus led by USC president Roman Trotsenko visited warships recently commissioned into Baltic Fleet and discussed problems and perspectives of shipbuilding with naval servicemen.

Command staff of frigate Neustrashimy, corvette Stereguschiy, and frigate Yaroslav Mudry expressed their recommendations on advantages and drawbacks of present-day ships. Among wishes said by marines were volume increase of freshwater tanks, upgrade of water desalters and onboard control systems, and improvement of living compartments. According to undivided opinion of the fleet command, reliability of shipborne systems must be not less than 10 years, SPTA sets should have an aggregate substitution, and control systems must be independent from external informational sources and more unified to increase working effectiveness of gunners and operators.

While sailing off, the guests witnessed combat capabilities of Baltic Fleet warships, including missile and artillery firings.

According to the military, the meeting was quite topical and fruitful, since all new ships received by Russian Navy in the recent years passed sea and state trials in the Baltic Sea; so, Baltic mariners have accumulated a huge experience of operation with ships and onboard arms. Shipbuilding experts obtained sailors' professional recommendations on how must ship of the future look like.
