    MOSCOW, September 1 -. RIA Novosti Head patrol boat project 22160 "Vasily Bykov," armed with cruise missiles "Caliber", will be transferred to the Navy in 2017, he told RIA Novosti CEO of Zelenodolsk Gorky plant Renat Mistahov.

    Russian Navy will receive six new patrol ships until 2019

    There will be six patrol ships of project 22160 built for the Russian Navy until 2020, which will become part of the Black Sea Fleet.

    "Under the state contract surrender the lead ship of the project 22160 is scheduled for 2017," - he said on the eve of Mistahov international military-technical forum "Army 2016", which will be held in Moscow Kubinka from 6 to 11 September.

    He said that the project 22160 - the first ships in Russia, built in a modular fashion: they can change the equipment and weapons, depending on the task ahead.

    Patrol ships of the project 22160 are able to reach speeds of 30 knots, have a displacement of about 1.3 thousand tons, the number of crew of about 80 people. The cruising range of the ship's six thousand nautical miles. To effectively carry out the tasks as intended ships as standard weapons are launchers of cruise missiles "Caliber", 57-mm artillery installation, anti-aircraft missile systems, machine guns. The ship provides the possibility of basing the helicopter Ka-27PS.

    I find this class quite confusing unshaven

    For long range patrol sure, but does Russia really need 6 of them in the Black Sea Fleet & none elsewhere?
    I'd kind of assumed something like 2 each for Baltic/Pacific/BSF or 3 each BSF/Pacific but only noticed now that all 6 are planned for BSF.

    We know about the containerised Kalibr which provides a bunch of optional extra longrange BSF firepower but I've seen some reference to modular MCM/ASW packs & if those are indeed in the works then these ships will make much more sense as kinda LCSski (and I don't mean that in a derogatory way).

    But then if they work well in that multi-role mode then again I wonder why only for BSF?

    BSF needs replace aging fleet in fastest pace. Patrol boats on top of Buyans is strangest ot me. I´d prefer 22160 instead of Buyans, hope containers with AAD and ASW can be still added-

    BTW with 6k miles range they can sail in Mediterranem or south Africa, Indian Ocean.

    Buyan in Black sea fleet is not strange choice. It is sea-river class corvette and could patrol deep inside Don river and could sail into Caspian sea and Caspian Buyans could sail in Black sea. It is perfect to patrol in Black sea and in Caspian sea and to sail in big Don and Volga rivers. 22160 is open ocean patrol sea and is perect for Black sea and Batic fleets. When Black sea fleet Will have 22160 ships, than they will not need to send Buyans to Mediterranean sea as they Will have enough Grigorovich frigates and 22160 patrol ships to do that job.

    Does anyone know what the deal is with the engines on this class?

    I've seen some references to CoDaD with presumably domestic engines, but there are other sources which talk about M-70 (ie will be waiting on engines from Saturn) eg
    (also says MTU for the Diesels...)

    and why 22800 on top? 22160 isnt similar class and characteristics?

    22160 is patrol vessel with added optional cruise missile functionality, not a real warship. It is supposed to hunt pirates, show flag, visit other ports on friendly tours instead of more useful ships and in case of war to perform same role as Buyans/Karakurts.

    They are more expensive and take longer to build than those ships as well.

    And anti-piracy is also reason they are stationed in Black Sea. It is closest to Somalia.

    So what differentiates Buyan without Kalibs (a warship) and 22160? I cannot see much difference. So why not to build long series 22160 with avionics/radars pantsir and pakets on top of Kalibrs?

    Costs could eventually explain but but unification is not less important for logistics. Do you have periods of shipbuilding and costs of both classes somewhere?

    Once the 6 ships for the BSF are completed, the shipyard is expecting further orders of the class for a slightly modified version more suitable for colder seas (Baltic for example). That's what the company director mentioned a while ago.

    Main facts to keep in mind about this class of patrol ships
    -These 22160 ships have range (6000 nm) and endurance of larger frigates that are twice their size.
    -Their modular design enables to carry mission suitable armament.
    -They are going to be the most low-observable (stealthy) ships in the Ru Navy.
    -They will have low operational cost and carry a modest sized crew.

    Ah cool Smile

    Still haven't found a clear answer but the CoDaD references seem to be newer -> domestic diesels?

    Not directly. These ships use diesels only.
    However, the Kolomna plant (that makes diesels) now has to supply diesels to many classes of ships (including the Buyans who's diesels came from Germany).

    The fact that the shipyard announced a few days ago that the first ship will be completed by 2017, means that there are no delays (at least for the first unit).

    First Patrol ship was laid down well over a year ago, nearly two. First 22800 (Buyan's successor) several months ago. Both will be coming on line almost at the same time.

    well simar ships, possible similar armament but two types. Only difference I see 22800 are not foreseen for North Fleet (buoyancy I guess)

    North Fleet is exactly what 22800 were designed for. In fact first 5 ships will be going to North Fleet.

    I´ve re-checked and unfortunately you´re right Smile earlier this year in Tv Zvezda was videa about 22800 where they claimed 22800 do not have good buoyancy for northern fleet theater.

    They are same type and there is no difference between two ships. They are saying that second ship will be getting Kalibr containers. Remember, missile launchers on these ships are not integrated into the hull. Missiles are stored in interchangeable shipping containers in the back. Look at the pic.

    They are saying that second ship will be getting those containers. Nothing is stopping them from throwing same containers on first ship as well later on. First one will probably be getting containers with Uran missiles.

    Old Tarantul and Nanuchka missile ships routinely operate in North Sea. Karakurts will have better buoyancy than both. I think that somebody on TV did not double check the data.

    My bad I was not specific enough but as I am b#tching about 22800 I meant why build 2 types of boats (22160 and 22800) with similar displacement , same number of VLS cells ? i am just trying to understand why double logistics effort?

    They are not really similar. 22160 has 1300-1800 tons and 94 meters while 22800 has 800 tons and 60 meters. That is twice the size.

    And Karakurts are dedicated warships that are built in half the time it takes to build Patrol ship which would be auxiliary vessel in real war.

    Patrol ships have very small crew and operating costs and huge endurance. They are supposed to relieve rest of the fleet from trivial work like lengthy pirate hunting and ''diplomatic'' visits to foreign ports.

    There was time when Peter the Great battlecruiser was sent to hunt pirates off the Somali coast because no other ship with that endurance was available. Can you imagine that insanity?

    So here's a thing: The model with the containerised Calibr has the helipad forward of the stern where the containers are.

    The model at the recent military show has the helipad right at the stern (is it shorter than the earlier model?)


    Does possibly look like there are still covers there in the drawing & it does have a highlight with missiles (uran?), containers, mini-sub & towed sonar (?) there.

    Where is the Igla launcher? Its supposed to have 1 of the Gibka launchers like on Buyan-M but I haven't been able to identify it in any pics yet.

    Not directly. These ships use diesels only.
    However, the Kolomna plant (that makes diesels) now has to supply diesels to many classes of ships (including the Buyans who's diesels came from Germany).

    The fact that the shipyard announced a few days ago that the first ship will be completed by 2017, means that there are no delays (at least for the first unit).

    No, they (21361s) have Chinese engines.

    631-635 have MTU
    636-639 will have Chinese diesel engines.

    22160 will have Kolomna diesels (16D49)

    Everything else (CODAG, CODAD with MTU, etc.) are just options for export.
