Seems like a small but formidable ship on a pretty small platform. Would it be better to have 3 of these then a single DDG? Only 80 crew at risk, very good stand off attack capability, decent cruise range and decent AA capability. Even 100mm gives it good shore bombardment capacity, let alone a flotilla of 3 or 4 of these.

Yes, but why do they keep using those old style AK-630 CIWS on newer ships? There are later versions available with double the RoF.

Already laid down...these are small ships and they are building lots of similar ones. The Leider class I agree, I doubt they will build that one anytime soon. But apparently the Admiral Nahkimov rebuild has made lots of progress. I think they want smaller ships with long range hitting power due to lack of funding.

do you really need more then 4K rpm?Its a small ship, so ammo is probably a bit scarce.

LCS 2 took almost as long, plus they are probably waiting on gas turbine development with Ukrainian engines no longer being available

Russia could have had all the Ukrainian turbines the wanted had they not decided to Invade their neighbor.

Sure, but when the US decided to engineer a coup, they decided to join the free for all and grab what they could. Besides they kinda want their own engine capability and cannot rely on a foreign country for such critical systems.
