With all due respect, sir, Russian Navy is the strongest in the World.
Our birthday was more than 300 years ago..
Despite having less ships, subs and aircraft, then anticipated today, it's just - experience, strategy, skills and of course, fortune! :)

I really doubt, that there will be any conflicts between our countries.
Wish you best of luck!

-Lada class (diesel submarine) : 1st unit has been launched
-Severodvinsk class (nuclear attack submarine) : 1st unit will go for initial sea trials in May (if schedule is respected).

These ships are the first to be built since USSR collapsed.

Hopefully we'll see the project 21956 9000 ton stealth destroyer coming online soon Francois.. but I would agree with Herman on Russia's being the strongest navy in the world, with no amphibious assault and very little carrier aviation power projection.

Oops, typo - meant to say "disagree with Herman"..!
