    This news first appeared on interfax military this morning (so disregard Izvestiya)

    Russian submarines will be invisible

    To do this, a new coating must be placed sensors and fiber optic route management server system, as well as active emitters. Material will be formed pezokompozitnye plate, so use a rubber coating hulls of modern submarines impossible, detailed in documents the military. Development will be universal for all boats and will have to work with advanced computer systems for the submarine fleet.


    Technology to create active sonar based coating fabric material using composites should develop within three years - the first samples will be available by the end of 2016. To develop proactive technology protivogidrolokatsionnoy system Minpromotorg willing to spend 200 million rubles.

    We have had for a years a Russian ship similar to this one docked in varna bay, Bulgaria. I've seen it from a few km every time a travel by train. Anyway it looks almost like this one but along with the 2 AK-630s it also has a 57 or 76mm bow gun. Anyone know if the soviets ever operated a ship like that?

    Have to have more detail... most of the Soviet support fleet was armed with AK-630 and light main guns... Smile

    -1st of this month, first trials of Novorosiisk should have started.
    -At the end of this month, the 4 boat of the series, the Krasnodar will be laid down.
    -Rostov-on-Don launched in May 2014.

    Of course this proves the media balony about 3 boats in 1 year wrong, but nonetheless, good pace.

    There is no SSM replacement planned for Slava.

    The Ustinov is being capital repaired, but not reworked with new weapons.

    What are you talking about?

    What waste? The ships are living out their lives, and are being repaired and maintained until well into the 2020s. By mid decade they will old and prime for retirement.
    The RuNavy is looking at 10,000 ton, nuclear cruisers in the future, so what is the point of performing expensive repairs on every single big ship? It becomes pointless at one point.

    Kirov a waste? Like I said, you gonna foot the bill?

    EDIT: Or do you man Kiev, which...makes even less sense O.o

    And then once those ships you claim "unrefittable" are decommissioned, judging by extreme pessimism on Russian ship building pace similar to most western detractors, the whole Russian navy will have less than 25 ships larger than corvettes.

    Not a bright future for a nation whose navy some decades rivaled whole of NATO.

    On the Kiev: you know how many UKSKs, reduts, pantsirs,etc it could've been upgraded to deliver ? Also it could have been refitted by now to be a UCAV carrier . Not to mention a good testing platform for Russian VTOL aviation(no matter if the Russian navy doesn't want to operate them, they could've improved the technological prestige of Russian aeronautics and added another product for export).

    What they should done was instead of selling them to china as floating circuses they should've mothballed them and by now or a few years from now started refitting the Kiev to be a drone cruiser.

    Uh, seriously?

    1.) The USSR had a navy the size of NATO. Not Russia. Russia will not ever have a navy the size of NATOs. Forget about it.
    2.) By the time the cruisers get old (theres only...3 of them anways, not counting Nakhimov and Peter) the 10,000 ton ships will be around, and Russia hardly needs a dozen of them.
    3.) Kiev was old crap. There is no need for a 45,000 ton UKSK farm, and as a carrier it was never very good. What would Russia operate of it? A VTOL bird has nothing on MiG-29K in performance let alone PAK-FA. Export? LOL. There is ZERO export market for a Russian VTOL bird. As for the rest of the ship, it is horribly outdated and would need to be completely gutted, and even that would still leave a outdated hull. Time to move on.
    Much smarter to just make a proper carrier, who can be escorted by the big cruisers or the new destroyers.

    Less fantasy, more reality please.
    Russia has hardly any UCAVs in its army and AF, you want this Kiev fantasy?

    And judging by the productions rates you present, Russia will only have 1-3 of those heavy destroyers at most by 2030-2040 and at that time they will be like to be obsolete due to improvements in littoral zumwalt shaped ships that have better stealth than any know ship so far so Russia will need to start another decades long ill fated construction cycle of new ships while constantly lagging behind.

    dont worry, LCS would cost them as much as a heavy destroyer would the russians  Twisted Evil  .
    But yeah, no reason to worry, they are making boats with the firepower punching way above
    their weights, plus its not like theres an arms race going on atm.

    If production rates continue at the same pace then there would have to be something seriously wrong.

    New contracts and new work is the best solution to 20 years of stagnation... production rates wont suddenly lift to fantastic levels overnight but with work they will only get better.

    After a few new technologies and systems are perfected then mass production will actually be much faster and more efficient than during Soviet times because the new vessels will be modular and the new systems and weapons and propulsion will be standardised.

    I can see why you say that..
    But i believe the more bigger is a warship ,the more expensive is its Maintenance.
    And you could achieve similar similar performance by just One or TWO Big warship per battlegroup ,escorted by ~10 small modern stealth patrol boats ,the smaller ones helping in the defense of the bigger ones and extending the field of view over the horizon  . In WW2 Canadians small patrol boats had more success defeating German U-boats than the big warships. they were very maneuverable in  water and hard to hit with torpedo and their big numbers made very lethal..


    So for a example a effective /cheap battle group could be like this..

    1 x Gorshov Class Frigate using S-400s 150km++ range ,Kalibers,torpedos with 1 Ka-27 Helicopter, escorted  by
    2 x Gremyashchy-class corvette  with S-400s small range and Kalibers..     with 1 Ka-27  
    2 x Steregushchy-class corvette using Shtil-1(Buks)sam defenses + Oniks   with 1 KA-27

    4 x Buyan-class small patrol boats with 8x Kalibers each and Igla sams .. 2 x AK-630 gatlin gun defenses.

    6 x  Project 22160 small Patrol boats  ,Underwater mortars ,sonars ,Igla missiles and with Ka-52 hellicopters
        armed with Aesa Radars ,with 80x S-8 rockets + Vympe 2x R-73M2 air to air missiles with 40km range + 4x igla missiles.
     
    The above Naval force should be more than enough to sink an entire Aircraft Carrier Group of NATO , specially like the one they deployed in Syria. Enough to destroy from 30 and up to ~50 warships with aircraft carrier and submarines. and about 300 combat planes if you have properly setup your navy and helicopters.  The major problem with Too Big Warships like a Kirov or Aircraft Carrier is that if you lose one in combat , Not only you lose thousands marines but the political consequences and negative image for the Power will be disastrous. The war could end for you as soon you have too much casualties your citizens can tolerate for defending an ally. But if you lose a Patrol Boat.. your soldiers will get angry but the fighting will continue . and 1 small cheap patrol boat with 8x 700km Kalibers missiles can sink an Aircraft carrier .

    auggh fck it.. i want a Kirov airship now111... KIROV REPORTING111
    It would be huge, fcking huge, with survivability against anything but a nuke in mind.
    Stealth features too would be a part of design consideration.
    Lots of radars on its sides that should detect even B-2s pretty easily.
    Lots of VLS tubes on its top, S-500/400/350, hypersonic Oniks, Kalibrs and even drones.
    Also lots of point defenses, pantsirs, tors etc.
    Nuke power is a must, and this beast must move really fast at high altitudes too.

    Ok, excluding the flight capability, what your your basically asking for is a floating !"DOOM Fortress"! with enough firepower to put all of the US navy and NATO to shame, i say build it, just to see what weak excuse the U.S/NATO will make to protect there "precious" image of "naval power".  Twisted Evil attack

    Don't let the armament fool you into thinking these boats are something they are not... a decent storm in the atlantic and the Buyan class and Project 22160 would be sunk.

    A carrier battlegroup would not be sunk by a frigate and a group of corvettes... if it really was that easy then there would be little point in larger ships.

    Russia does need cruisers and carriers if she wants to have a modern mobile navy.

    To suggest she can get by with very well armed Frigates because they are cheaper and more mobile and can be bought in larger numbers is like saying there is no need for the PAK FA... for one PAK FA you get a shtload of Yak-130s... put a big AESA in its nose and use AWACS and space based radar and have them all carry R-37M 300km range AAMs and nothing the enemy has will get close...
    If the Army is your thing... replace all the MBTs with those light special forces jeeps and don't bother with conventional army forces... just have all spetsnaz...

    A navy without a carrier is like an Army without an Air Force... it can still fight but not as well... it will not see as well, it will not reach as far, it will not kill as many bad guys and it will take more casualties in most things it does.

    A decent Russian carrier group will include at least one carrier and two cruisers.. preferably a Kirov based vessel and a Slava based vessel.
    The Carrier will have all offensive missiles removed and only have SAMs and CIWS... it will have a lot of them.
    The cruisers will have enough land attack and anti ship missiles to sink 5 enemy carrier groups and a few countries.
    The Aircraft on the carrier will have a critical anti sub mission, a critical anti air mission and a secondary anti ship and land attack mission with aircraft carrying long range cruise missiles.
    There will be about 6 multi role destroyers and potentially a Mistral class helicopter carrier depending on the missions... when there is a mistral carrier attached extra ships will be added too, plus all the support vessels.

    Frigates will be left at home to patrol local waters as will all patrol boats.

    There will be a few Yasen and upgraded Oscar II subs to round out the carrier group along of course with support ships and reloading ships etc.

    Remember the Sigma C4IR system will integrate all the data from all the platforms of the fleet and space and surface and subsurface vessels to create a picture of underwater, surface, air, and space around the group in real time.

    Can't read russian.. but contains amazing cool looking designs..

    There is an amazing stealth warship.. that looks very interesting..




    Looks very interesting and very stealthy ,Wondering if that a real warship Russia developing ,and what class it is
