ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the motivations and implications of the possible purchase and construction of a French MISTRAL-class LHD design ship by the Russian Navy. The article notes that while there was speculation that the move was political, the reality is that the Russian Navy wants a fleet of ships and buying a Western design would be faster than domestic construction. The article notes that Russian shipyards are not happy with the news. Further implications of the deal with France are discussed.
