Demonstrating the nation’s greatness, warning off enemies, convincing friends they made the right choice, helping those who is not a friend yet to make the right choice–only a very large surface warship can accomplish all of these things.
Guards Missile Cruiser Moskva in Alexandria, on the eve of the joint Russian-Egyptian Friendship Bridge-2015 naval exercises.
J.Hawk’s Comments: The exercise will involve several Russian and Egyptian warships, including some rarely seen outside the Black Sea, like the Samum missile hovercraft. Russia’s relationship with Egypt is evolving rather rapidly.
