    Hi,

    Does it mean that the deck "red brick" colour coat will be painted over with the final and definitive grey colour, the same grey used on the hull and other structures?


    Another question: the ships of this class (Project 21361) will received the Pantsir-S air defense missile-gun system?


    Thanks.

    I expect so, but we cant know for sure, Peter the Great never got its deck repainted, its always being just repainted by base protective paint of redish color. But since some of the Buyans got repainted i expect all to be.

    Project 21361 for now will keep its existing air defence systems, maybe sometimes in future it recieves navalised Pancirs, but for now doesnt seem like it.

    The red paint is a traditional paint used on Soviet and Russian vessels and it has a non slip component to it to make standing on the deck easier and safer.

    It also has a visibility aspect too as a lighter colour reflects light better so you can see better where you are putting your feet in adverse conditions.

    I rather suspect if there is a new grey paint that it has non slip properties as well.

    The name will be "GRAD".

    Grad is ''hale'' in Russian (among others). This is new trend, so far they have been naming them after cities and towns.

    Then again they stopped naming Karakurts after meteorological terms and switched to adjectives for the newest one.

    So it looks like Zelenodolsk will be sticking with Buyan class. Makes sense if they solved engine issues. They are more than good enough for Black Sea, Caspian and Baltic fleets.

    Just not pictured for some reason. The previous plate didn't have it either. Maybe they'll replace it with a new АК-176МА.

    Behind Buyan-M ships is also 22160 class ship, which is painted and have the main gun installed. It looks like it is ready to be launched.

    with possible NAVAL PANTSIR.
    I think just the radar post

    Kinda odd they don't put the weapons on the plate but it looks like maybe a manual drawing/etching rather than the laser cut style seen on some other ships so perhaps not too surprising to have a simplified profile?

    The 22160 was supposed to be launching in March.
