Social media users ridiculed the new armored boat project “Gyurza-M” created on money of the United States for the naval forces of Ukraine. About it reports “Russian newspaper”.
Designed for a crew of five people, the ship arrived at the test events in Odessa on their own. The military and the engineers want to test all systems and mechanisms of the boat, will be tested for speed, maneuverability and behavior in terms of the storm. The vessel is 23 meters. It is equipped with 30-millimeter cannon, machine gun and two grenade launchers.
New boat hardly noticeable both visually and to radar and infrared detection equipment, said the press center of the Ministry of defense of Ukraine.
At the same messages about the beginning of the test of a combat vehicle social media users were skeptical. For example, a user named psa_nos called armored “by bronislau” and Serge Zi ironically proclaimed Ukraine a “great Maritime power”. “And he’s kept on the water?” asked Sandro Hinze Stroganov.
In July Chinese edition Sohu came to the conclusion that Ukraine sent on a joint U.S. military exercise “armored fishing boat”. Journalists have noticed that in the Black sea near the American destroyer was the Ukrainian artillery boat, none of the characteristics are not superior. “The Ukrainian command ship is comparable to a fishing boat. It is still trying to scare Russia?” — ridiculed publishing situation.
