From another thread:
If you have a problem with my argument, then refute it. If you're just upset about my opinion but can't contest it, then I suggest you don't resort to personal attacks to cover the gap.
I've heard that the Typhoon class are being scrapped with help from the US and the UK. Both countries are helping to reduce Russia's aging soviet fleet.
I got that from Naval Technology - SSBN Typhoon Class (Type 941) - Strategic Missile Submarine
I'd assume that that is the same case with the Deltas.
Collins Class rule!
1 Borey is going through Sea trials, another one is expected to hit the water in 14 months.
There are 7 Delta's series now in active service nearly 8 in reserve(good as scrapped)
This is just another instance of history proving an seeming axiom of Russia.
Russia throughout its history has endured territorial contraction and followed by periods of expansion in influence. It has also sought international recognition, whether in the European great power system or during the COld War for its claims as a global power deserving to influence global events.
Russia is never in stasis. I think it is unatural for Russia, a continental power on two continents to not have some ability to influence global events. A continetal sized power, should not be isolated in seething resentment, no matter the degradation of its national power compared to its Soviet days.
