The article, which is devoted to the problem of British and American naval lend-lease for the Soviet Union during the years of Great Patriotic War (1941-1945), deals with the question of influence made by the most important deliveries of weapon and equipment (except British and American war ships) on the capability of domestic Navy to fight in circumstances when the Soviet industry had to manufacture war materials for the needs of Red Army. The main point is also to show the impact given by lend-lease's technologies to the development of Soviet naval armament, which made possible to reduce the lag in sphere of military industry and equip the Soviet navy in compliance with advance standards in postwar period.
