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!

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.
