    So neither Redut nor Shtil work?

    Even after all this time?

    I thought that the Sthil system was tried and tested. We saw plenty of videos it being used and the core of the system is in use for the last 25 years, I presume that the "only" things that the new Shtil system introduced was better and faster electronics, better missile maneuvering and tracking and vertical launch capability. But all of it is based on a platform that works for some time now.

    Maybe the statement was just taken out of context.

    Redut and Shtil Naval Systems

    Post  calripson on Sat Mar 25, 2017 3:58 pm

    There is ample evidence that there are significant operational problems with the Redut naval system and apparently Shtil as well. This begs the question: are the deployed Stereguschy class ships deployed with non-operational SAM systems ? It is a little odd that the land based systems appear to work but not the naval versions.

    Analysis: Russian Navy Tests Tor-M2KM air defense missile system from Admiral Grigorovich Frigate

    The Russian Navy is testing the Tor (NATO reporting name: SA-15 Gauntlet) surface-to-air missile (SAM) system. The military is trying to plug the holes in ship air defense with the advanced small-size SAM system, expert Sergei Ishchenko writes in an article on the Svobodnaya Pressa news website.


    Launch of a 9M331M surface to air missile from the self-contained combat module 9K331MKM short-range missile system Tor-M2KM, placed on the helicopter deck of the head frigate Admiral Grigorovich of Project 11356. Screenshot from "Russia 24" video (via bmpd.livejournal.com).

    At the IDEX 2017 arms show, Russian corporation Almaz-Antei showed an interesting advert video. It turned out that it had been shot in October 2016 by the Black Sea Fleet that was testing a new weapon, the Tor-M2KM SAM system. The self-contained fighting module of the Tor-M2KM, manufactured by Kupol in the city of Izhevsk, was mounted on the helipad of the Admiral Grigorovich frigate, the Project 11356 lead ship (NATO reporting name: Admiral Grigorovich-class). It was loaded onto the deck by means of an ordinary wharf crane and then was fixed in position with steel chains like a helicopter. It launched SAMs at simulated cruise missiles, and the tests were a success, judging by the video.

    Initially, the mobile Tor SAM system was being developed solely as a provider of air defense for army divisions on the march and in position in the 1980s. Since the transporter-erector-launcher-and-radar (TELAR) vehicle proved to be very good, soon the Navy wanted it too. Its ship-based short-range version, designated Kinzhal (SA-N-9 Gauntlet), was derived. It is able to deal with any up-to-date air threats at a range of 1.5-12 km and has been installed on all Project 1155 (Udaloy II) antisubmarine warfare destroyers, Admiral Kuznetsov (Kuznetsov-class) aircraft carrier and Pyotr Veliky (Kirov-class) nuclear-powered guided missile battlecruiser.

    The Kinzhal SAM system is bulky enough (its on-deck segment alone measures 113 sq.m) and rather heavy (41.5 tons) and has a crew of 13. On the other hand, the Tor-M2KM’s fighting module weighs almost thrice as little - mere 15 tons. According to its manufacturer, one needs only any horizontal platform 2.5 m wide and at least 7.1 m long without any mechanical or hydraulic actuators to link the Tor-M2KM to the platform. The module has all it takes to fight - the special equipment, computer system, radar, optics, missiles, operator compartment, self-contained and backup systems with an organic fuel store, life support, ventilation and air conditioning systems.

    In other words, the Tor-M2KM can be mounted in no time not only almost on any surface combatant of a rather modest displacement but on a truck as well, or, say, on the roof of a high-rise. This is granted by the module’s complete self-contained operating capability afforded by its organic power supply in the form of a gas-turbine power plant.


    Russia 24 video

    What is more, the SAM system is actually a very compact fighting robotic system, because the automation of its operation has been maximized. Only fancy, it goes from standby to full alert in 3 min., has an organic radar capable of acquiring 144 air targets and simultaneously tracking the 20 most dangerous ones, its crew of only two have only to mark one target as the priority for engagement as the module begins to autotrack three more within the field of fire and gives them the good news - a SAM each.

    The maximum range of the Tor-M2KM’s missiles is 3 km longer than that of the Kinzhal’s SAMs. This is important in the lightning-fast battles against enemy aircraft and missiles. The kill probability featured by the Tor-M2KM’s SAMs is at least 0.98.

    Thus, this is a radically sophisticated and up-to-date ship-borne AD weapon. However, what is it designed for? Presumably, the answer lies in the participants in the trials onboard the Admiral Grigorovich. According to an official news release, engineers and designers from the Severnoye and Zelenodolsk design bureaux are taking part in the tests along with personnel of Kupol and the Navy Shipbuilding and Armament Research Institute. Let us take a closer look at the fact.

    Now, the Zelenodolsk Design Bureau’s priority is to build a large series of Project 21631 (Buyan-M-class) guided missile corvettes.

    The Buyan-M was designed for the Black Sea Fleet and Caspian Flotilla. Its purpose initially was to guard and defend the country’s exclusive economic zones. Since it was believed that it would not have to operate too far away from the shore, the Buyan-M was made capable of navigating rivers as well. The ship’s narrow beam (11 m) and low draught (2.6 m) enable her to negotiate the locks of the Volga-Baltic Waterway easily. Her waterjets are not designed for high-seas operations either. In October 2016, Buyan-Ms headed for the Baltic Fleet around Europe. The cruise through the Atlantic highlighted both the strengths and weaknesses of the class. Their total vulnerability to air attack became obvious. Certainly, the designers who conceived the class for riverine and sea operations believed that strong air defense was unnecessary for it. Hence, to save room for the Kalibr (SS-N-27 Sizzler) missiles, they limited themselves to the fitting of the Buyan-M with a pair of pedestal-mounted launchers of the 3M47 Gibka system.

    Hence, it is a natural that the advent of new missions for the Buyan-M fleet has made the designers rack their brains how to make the ships more capable in terms of air defense, and the Admiral Grigorovich-tested compact self-contained fighting module of the Tor-M2KM SAM system may well come in handy.

    The assumption is bolstered by the Central Design Bureau of Apparatus Engineering having developed a cutting-edge active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar specifically for the Buyan-M. However, a combination of an AESA radar and the Gibka short-range SAM system would be nonsense onboard the Buyan-M corvette. However, the AESA radar providing air defense side by side with the Tor-M2KM would be quite another kettle of fish.

    Severnoye’s interest in the Tor-M2KM should be noted too. The third Project 11356 frigate, named Admiral Makarov, has been unable to pass its official tests for the third year at a stretch. The principal cause is serious problems with its Shtil-1 (SA-N-12 Grizzly) SAM system. The problem has been publicly admitted by Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov the other day in the course of the Unified Military and Industry Materiel Delivery Reporting Day, expert Sergei Ishchenko reminds in his article published by the Svobodnaya Pressa news portal.

    Looks great thumbsup

    Before reading this report, I have never known that the Kinzhal is this bulky and heavy. Plus, I have heard it from many sources (in another topic, it was even mentioned by some of you guys), that it is plagued with many issues.

    In my opinion, "navalizing" the Tor would be the best bet of the Russian Navy in this regard. On smaller vessels, one combat unit (launcher) located at the aft of the ship, and its target aquisition (the rotating one mounted atop the regular Tor system) radar mounted on the ship's main mast would be fine. Larger ships (frigates, destroyers and cruisers) could have two launchers (one facing forward, one facing aft (backwards) plus the target aquisition radar on the main mast would do the job.

    This "navalized" Tor could easily replace the Kinzhal and the naval version of the Osa.

    Tor is nowhere near good enough replacement for Shtil. Like comparing handgun with sniper.

    And how the hell can one ship be accepted into service and even participate in freakin' war (doing second tour as we speak) while other identical ship can still be stuck with faulty AA system? I don't get it... confused

    Probably erros in the construction of this particular system. The system is used by many ships including retired Sovromenys (older version but still the same system).

    Indeed. When I posted this article, I was a bit puzzled about this too.

    Even if we just look at their land-based counterparts (the Buk and the normal Tor respectively), it is clear as day that they are not in the same league. Tor is a SHORAD system, while the Buk/Shtil are medium range SAM systems. If they would ever want to replace the Stihl...

    ... That's where the Poliment-Redut would come into play, but with its quite long range (120 or so kms) it would be an absolute overkill, so the most logical step would be to outright modernize the Stihl, and more important, to correct its faults.

    Guys I have a question about Project 22460 Coast Guard ships:

    They have option for installation of 4 x Kh-35 missiles even though they are not currently installed.

    Where exactly on the ship would they go if they were to be installed?

    I think that they could be mounted in front of or behind that gun.

    Russia’s seaborne air defense system to receive three types of missiles

    Russia’s seaborne missile complex will be fitted out with three types of missiles unified with the S-350 Vityaz ground-based air defense system

    MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. Russia’s Poliment-Redut seaborne missile complex will be fitted out with three types of missiles unified with the S-350 Vityaz ground-based air defense system, Almaz-Antey Aerospace Defense Group Chief Designer Pavel Sozinov said on Monday.

    "The Poliment-Redut-R R&D work is focused on developing small-, medium-and intermediate-range missiles for arming the relevant ships," he said in an interview published in Natsionalnaya Oborona (National Defense) magazine.

    "Poliment-Redut surface-to-air missiles have been unified with the S-350 Vityaz air defense system," the chief designer said.

    All new-generation missiles are being developed with active homing heads and the inertial guidance system and feature very high maneuverable characteristics for hitting the entire range of attack means, Sozinov said.

    This year, Almaz-Antey defense contractor will celebrate the 15th anniversary of its establishment.

    I always wondered....  

    Both the New or Not so new Shtil-1 and the New Redut VLS SAM system is supposed to take up the Medium Range Air Defense role since S-300F/FMs or S-400Fs have taken the role of long Range AD....  

    Why work on two different systems that fulfill the same role?  Seems redundant to me unless both missiles have different roles and capabilites (as of now, it seems that both fulfill the same role as Medium Range AD Systems with similar performances (Redut on paper seems to have better performance than the older Shtil-1).....  

    Why not instead of working out the issues of 2 different systems...  Just focus on the Redut system's issues so it then can be used to replace the older Shtils and Standardize the Medium range SAM systems of the RuN for future Vessels and Refits?






    Also....  

    Is this really what is being proposed for the Nakhimov Refit?

    Interesting... my guess is that that would be Morfei... or 9M100 as the short range missile and the small and medium sized small missiles of 9M96 and 9M96E missiles (40km and 120km max ranges respectively).

    The Shtil and Redut are based on different families of missiles with different roles.

    The Shtil evolved from the SA-10/SA-17 family of missiles that evolved from the SA-6 mobile medium land based SAM, while the Redut is an evolution of the smaller missiles developed for the S-400 system that have now branched off into the S-350 family of missiles.

    All very capable systems evolved from previous generation mature systems.

    I would suggest that the problem is with the vertical launched Shtil-1 and not the previous Shtil SAM system that has been operational since the 1980s.

    And regarding those images of upgrades for Orlan class ships... I suspect fan art.

    Well i understand that they are based of different family of missiles but just seems redundant to have 2 SAM systems of similar capabilities....    
    Shtil-1 if i understand was advertised of having a range of 50KM while the redut's 9M96 is 40-50KM (along with the 9M100 which is most likely missiles for Point Defense cause of its Very short range)....    
    Unless the Reduts are going to exclusively or majorily only run the troublesome 9M96E/E2 Variants....  

    *If thats the case then i can potentially see a Four tier AD network for Capital ships (Cruisers and Destroyers [Because Russia has an issuefetish for Gigantism])

    • S-400Fs (250KM), Ultra Long Range
    • Redut (120KM), Long Range
    • Shtil-1 (50KM), Medium Range
    • Various PD Missile Systems (OSA-MA, 9M100s) or CIWS (Palash/Kortik, AK-630M, Pantsir-S), Short Range


    *And a three Tier AD network for Medium Ships (Light Destroyers [If russia will ever employ DDs like other nations XD], Frigates)

    • Redut (120KM), Long Range
    • Shtil-1 (50KM), Medium Range
    • Various PD Missile Systems (9M100s) or CIWS (Palash/Kortik, AK-630M, Pantsir-S), Short Range




    As for Issues, At this point whenever i mention Shtil, I'd always refer to the Shtil-1 because well it is newer (not by much at this point because 2004) and more of relevance to the modern day...
    The Original Baseline Shtil is obselete imo hence irrelevant at this point....
    I hope they sort out the issues with the Shtil-1 ASAP tho or this is going be a major setback for the AD capabilities of the current RuN...

    Russian navy isn't going to use shtil. It was already mounted on grigorovitvh which were upgraded of old soviet frigate meant for Indian navy. The fact is that they knew Gorshkov will take time to be ready so they ordered some of them.

    The only other ships that can use shtil are Sovromenys which use older version. They can be upgraded with VLS (Chinese are doing this) but they won't as they will be replaced by gorshkovs.

    But russia's main navy anti air defence systems will be Redut (Gorshkov and Steregouchy), and future S-400F ( for destroyers and cruiser, which is still not ready for naval use) and pantsir and tor for smaller vessels.

    Concerning Nakhimov, I don't think it ill get Redut which is too "small" for such a ship. The VLS can't take bigger missiles like 48N6E, just 9M96. An upgrade to S-300FM is more usefull while S-400F is not ready, at least I never heard of a naval S-400. Redut is more navale S-350 than, like some articles say, a naval S-400.

    There is no such thing as a 'S-400F' and won't be. You had the S-300F and then that sort of evolved into a more modular and flexible system with a smaller footprint - the Redut VLS. They're not going to take a step back from that now.

    IMO it doesn't make too much sense to talk about S-300s/S-400s in the naval context. As S-300/400 battallions are composed not only of launch & reload vehicles, but search radars, tracking/engagement radars, command vehicles and other infrastructure. That's why it makes sense to call them these different designations.

    However on a ship all of those functions are handled by the ship's sensors and control systems itself, and also via interfacing with other ships and whatever other assets.

    So the only differentiation between a S-300 and S-400 that's left in the naval context - are the missiles themselves.

    And the missiles of the S-300P/S-300F are being phased out along with these systems themselves, while the newer missiles have been unified between S-350, S-400 and Redut VLS (and partially S-300PMU); except for the fact that the largest missiles are only compatible with the S-400 launch vehicles, from what we know.

    The Nakhimov will be equipped with Reduts; the only question is will those Reduts be compatible with the long and ultra-long range 48N6 series missiles. I would guess yes. Befitting a ship of its class.

    Ideally it would have S-500 missiles; but as the S-500 is only going to be introduced on land by 2019 - the time-frame is way too tight to develop and test a naval version for the Nakhimov, along with all the radar and sensor modifications for that class of weapon.
    Perhaps the Peter the Great will eventually get the S-500 on its next modernization.

    The only other ships that can use shtil are Sovromenys which use older version. They can be upgraded with VLS (Chinese are doing this) but they won't as they will be replaced by gorshkovs.

    But russia's main navy anti air defence systems will be Redut (Gorshkov and Steregouchy), and future S-400F ( for destroyers and cruiser, which is still not ready for naval use) and pantsir and tor for smaller vessels.

    Concerning Nakhimov, I don't think it ill get Redut which is too "small" for such a ship. The VLS can't take bigger missiles like 48N6E, just 9M96. An upgrade to S-300FM is more usefull while S-400F is not ready, at least I never heard of a naval S-400. Redut is more navale S-350 than, like some articles say, a naval S-400.

    It was said that the Nakhimov will be equipped with S-400PMU/Fs on her refit

    There is no such thing as a 'S-400F' and won't be. You had the S-300F and then that sort of evolved into a more modular and flexible system with a smaller footprint - the Redut VLS. They're not going to take a step back from that now.

    IMO it doesn't make too much sense to talk about S-300s/S-400s in the naval context. As S-300/400 battallions are composed not only of launch & reload vehicles, but search radars, tracking/engagement radars, command vehicles and other infrastructure. That's why it makes sense to call them these different designations.

    However on a ship all of those functions are handled by the ship's sensors and control systems itself, and also via interfacing with other ships and whatever other assets.

    So the only differentiation between a S-300 and S-400 that's left in the naval context - are the missiles themselves.

    Yeah....  the Talk about S-400s on the Nakhimov were just based on articles i've read about the Nakhimov's refit....  
    (Want to post links to them but i can't but searching Admiral Nakhimov S-400 in Google brings up articles from Naval Recognition, Sputnik, RBTH and other sites about the S-400 being equipped into the Nakhimov for her refit... Deagel also has an short info page for the S-400F for the Nakhimov)

    I wasn't aware you can equip Redut VLS with 48N6 missiles....  
    Last i saw someone suggesting that, people said it was too big....

    Besides...  Redut is still having issues with the guidance of its 9M96E2 missiles which range is only 120KM so i doubt it could effectively guide 48N6 missiles with its FCS....  
    But i may be wrong...

    If you can fit 3x 9M96s tubes in the place of 1x full-size 48N6 on a S-400 launch vehicle; then I don't see why it shouldn't be possible to fit 1x 48N6 in a large Redut cell that occupies the space of 4 standard Redut cells. Even a 40N6.
    Such an installation would have to be deeper (twice as much); hence perhaps why you haven't seen it yet in the ships which have Redut but are all quite a bit smaller than a Slava or Kirov class.
    Perhaps software/sensor limitations play a role too as you hinted.

    Either way, I would find it hard to imagine the Nakhimov being limited to just the 9M96s with a Redut. That would give it less range than the Pyotr Veliky with its S-300FM that's compatible with 48N6 missiles.

    I guess they can just upgrade the Nakhimov's S-300F to a S-300FM too. However that's legacy technology at this stage, as would any further upgrade to it be to a S-300FM2, S-400F or whatever.

    It's S-300FM, same as currently on Peter the Great.

    "The Poliment-Redut-R R&D work is focused on developing small-, medium-and intermediate-range missiles for arming the relevant ships,"
    I find it weird that they're talking about Poliment-Redut as if its a completely new system rather than one that was supposed to be in service like 10yrs ago...

    Why work on two different systems that fulfill the same role?  Seems redundant to me
    It's quite confusing to me too.
    I have 2 main theories:
    An intentional Russian MoD organised Hi-Lo setup with blank page all-new tech Redut/S-350 High end, high risk vs modernised Sthil-1/Buk-M3 Low end, low risk.
    Unintentional side-effect of letting various companies/design bureaux try to get Export orders. (Talwars have non-VLS Sthil-1, S-350 is supposed to be heavily based on work with South Korean K-sam)
    Maybe a bit of both dunno

    Is this really what is being proposed for the Nakhimov Refit?
    Sort of, sort of not.
    There is no official list of what's changing/image of what it should look like. I think the 2nd pic is probably pretty close to what's known though.
    There is a price-list of components that are supposedly going into it & a few official quotes.
    10* UKSK modules has been quoted = 80* Onyx/Kalibr/Zircon even though the area appears to give room for more (hence a bunch of fan-art pics show many more than 80 cells)
    I believe 6* Naval Pantsir has been quoted. (= 192* ~15km missiles)
    The price-list includes the large Podberezovik, Fregat, Poliment (most people missed the 5P-20K code), Puma fire control radars, updated S-300FM (which might include the 48N6 from S-400) there is no new S-300 grid-style VLS (other than some English language references to one called Krepost) so presumably will continue to use the existing 12* 8-cell rotary launchers = 96* long range SAMs, no Redut launchers mentioned but seems an obvious addition that can replace Tor/Osa, your 2nd pic has 56* cells which seems a bit light but not bad in context of 96* longer & 192* shorter range missiles.

    Ah....  
    Well...
    Shit....  

    Not saying the S-300FM is bad tech but its definitely old (17 Years)....   Wouldn't be that confident engaging NATO aircraft with late 2000s or Early 2010s DECM/OECMs (F/A-18G with its AN/ALQ-214V2 IDECM as an example or the AN/APG-81 AESA radar which has OECM capabilities)   150KM is also not that great for an AD Range for Capital ships....    (SM-6 for comparison has a range of 240-400KM tho i suspect effective range with high POH is around 200-300KM)

    I can see why the RuN is lacking behind in pushing out new Weapons systems tho...    
    The predicted 250KM range of the 48N6 Missiles would be a nice stop gap until a we get better ULR SAM Systems to be used as standard like a Naval version of the S-500....
    Also that list didn't speak of any Weapon modification of changes as well...  only S-300FM....  
    Strange.....

    *Note When i say late 2000s i meant as an Era (2005-2010) and early 2010s (2010-2015)....

    updated S-300FM (which might include the 48N6 from S-400)

    Update yet no change to the Name of the system? I guess its update to FCS....   Also I doubt the FCS of the S-300F series can guide missiles to the ranges of beyond 180KM as effective as the S-400...  Again..  its still based of the original S-300FM FCS with some refurbishment....    I can see the Redut system being able to operate it with Updates to the System but....   Unless the russians built the Program Architecture of the S-300F FCS like AEGIS but as far as i know, it wasn't....   Russia's first attempt at an AEGIS-like system is the Poliment-Redut Universal System as far as i know which is more recent so i doubt the S-300F's FCS is that adaptive... Or else there would be no reason to create the S-400 combat Package if S-300s with system updates were adequate enough to operate 48N6E3 (I'm aware that newer S-300s can operate 48N6 missiles but the E3 variant is what we want as it fits the bill for Naval ULR missiles of the modern age... and last i checked, the 48N6E3s are exclusively being run by S-400s right now)

    10* UKSK modules has been quoted = 80* Onyx/Kalibr/Zircon even though the area appears to give room for more

    Russians can probably fit more than 10 UKSK modules (And they probably should since they will be playing with a lot of Surge attacks and missile barrages against US destroyers with AEGIS)....  
    I hope they do...

    no Redut launchers mentioned but seems an obvious addition that can replace Tor/Osa

    Osa-MA's era as PD systems has already been long over....  Their missiles probably won't even track Tomahawk BLK IV MMT (Multi-Mission AShM capable) or Harpoon IIs (Updated) after launch because the 9K33M's seeker is most likely going to get spoofed by their onboard DECM untill they reach EOS targeting distance....  but by then, they would have failed in their job and the CIWS would take over instead.... Reduts would make a good system to use now using their (9M96 Baseline as medium Range and 9M100s as PD)

    An intentional Russian MoD organised Hi-Lo setup with blank page all-new tech Redut/S-350 High end, high risk vs modernised Sthil-1/Buk-M3 Low end, low risk.

    I can see that as use until the russians have finished testing the Redut System and can fully replace the Shtil-1....    Shtil-1 can be kept as export i guess.... Or be integrated to the Redut system... Either way...  Shtil-1 is long overdue IMO and with the standard it has (40-50KM only?), Better focus R&D to the Redut system which is more comparable to the SM-2ERs for reference.....

    Its what they say dunno
    On one hand S-300 with its bewildering array of variants & possible configs is kinda the poster child for modular upgradable & scalable land based SAM so I don't discount possibility of capability upgrades under same designation.
    Maybe they have unused S-300FM stuff sitting in a warehouse from when they were finishing off PtG?
    On the other hand Ustinov just had a big upgrade but still has S-300F designation & there's no mentions of improved capability.

    Osa-MA's era as PD systems has already been long over
    I meant replace as in use the physical location (though also Ustinov apparently retains Osa for some reason)

    until the russians have finished testing the Redut System and can fully replace the Shtil-1.... Shtil-1 can be kept as export i guess.... Or be integrated to the Redut system
    For my part having developed & put Stihl-1 into service I want to see them build more ships with it.
    Its a pretty big missile with very medium range but it seems silly to waste that effort on only 3 or 6 orphan 11356es.

    Neither OSA or TOR have seekers on their missiles... they are all command guided... so as long as a radar on the ship can track the target OSA or TOR should be able to hit it.

    There is no talk of S-400 but all the electronics and systems will likely be upgraded to S-400 level even if old missiles are used.

    Eventually newer missiles based on the new large S-400 will be made and may be called S-400 or maybe not.

    When S-500 enters service then larger launch tubes make sense anyway.
