May I ask why some inscriptions on planes are in Russian and others are in Ukrainian?

Just a thought...the Sigma has a hull sonar but no torpedo tubes. Wondering if this is an oversite or if ASW weapons delivery will be handled by aircraft. A great start to a nice regional navy.

there is an Mk 32 SVTT which can be fired trough the hatch just in front of the hangar on most SIGMA ships, I suppose this one is the same.

Yeah that is something I need to fix, I was first thinking about putting Russian text on the planes but later changed my mind to Ukrainian. So that will be fixed in the near future.

Kuban Cold War frigates
The Kuban Navy operates several ex Soviet Black Sea Fleet frigates which make up the tip of the spear of the Kuban Naval power. They operate a Pr.11351 ''Krivak 3'' class guided missile frigate and a Pr.1159T ''Koni'' class frigate. Both ships are based at the Naval Base in Novoukrainsk. In the near future these vessels shall be replaced by the new SIGMA 10514 frigate.

PZL W-3PL

The Kuban Air Force operated the Mil Mi-2 scouting helicopter after the fall of the Soviet Union. These helicopters were good enough for the recon task. But by 2005 when the Russians were becoming a larger threat on the Kuban border, a plan was made to obtain new armed recon helicopters. Not long after the innitiative was started the Polish aerospace company PZL-Świdnik in cooperation with Kuban Aerospace offered the PZL W-3PL armed recon helicopter. PZL would build the helicopters and Kuban Aerospace was permitted to assemble spare parts and perform maintenance on the helicopters. Eventually seeing this as the best option the Kuban Air Force decided to buy 12 airframes. Deliveries started in 2007 and ended in 2010. In 2009 the Kuban Air Force said good bye to the Mi-2's since the W-3's reached IOC.

Kuban Navy

The Kuban Navy was established at the day of the Kuban independence. They inherited several ships from the Soviet Union like one Krivak 3 class, 2 Kirvak 1 class frigates, a Koni class frigate, Tarantul and Pauk class corvettes. Further more they got their hands on several Kilo class submarines, which were sold or scrapped due budgetairy constrains. The Kuban Navy's amphibious task force cosists out of 4 old Soviet LST's and 2 Zubr class LCAC's. With a budget decrease in 2010 due the global economic crisis the Kuban Navy was forced to retire and scrap the 2 Krivak 1 class frigates. By 2016 the Kuban Navy started a modernization program. The Novoukrainsk Naval Shipyards teamed up with Damen Shipyards to offer a variant of the SIGMA 10514 to the Kuban Navy as replacement of the Krivak and Koni frigates, it was eventually selected and 2 were to be build. Damen also won the offert to build 4 new corvettes which would replace the Tarantul and Pauk class corvettes. The Novoukrainsk Naval Shipyards started to develop a new OPV and Fast Response Cutters for coastal patrols, the new OPV called Azov was delivered in 2018 and the new Fast Patrol Cutter 50's were delivered over 2017 and 2018. At the moment the Kuban Navy is looking to modernize the Amphibious Assault Force and Mine Counter Measures fleet. To expand the capabilities of the Kuban Navy they want to obtain a replenishment/logistics vessel.

The Kuban Navy has 2 main bases of operations, Novoukrainsk and Sochi. Novoukrainks is the location of the Kuban Navy HQ and the Naval Academy. Novoukrainsk is the homeport of the frigates, corvettes, OPV and the future replenishment and logisitcs vessel. Sochi is the homeport of the Fast Patrol Cutters, Amphibious Assault Fleet and the MCM fleet.
