    Shipbuilding Plant in Azerbaijan
    31.07.2009

    In Azerbaijan, will be built shipyard, including the manufacture of warships.

    "Azerbaijan is negotiating with foreign companies for construction in Baku shipbuilding factory, modern standards", - said President Ilham Aliyev at a government meeting on the basis of socio-economic development in the first half. The Head of State noted that he had already selected a foreign investor to finance the construction of such an enterprise. At the same time, he said, the project must involve state-owned oil and investment company. "We need to make sure that construction began as early as next year and completed in a short period of time. This should be the plant, which will be any court, including for military purposes," - said Aliyev.

    Awesome stuff, interesting how that patrol boat and corvette are all Western/Israeli technology too, Azerbaijan looks to be getting a good deal with the Israelis.

    What's the shipyard scheduled to produce? Anything larger than those corvettes? (I'm guessing they are < 10 ton displacement)

    So are there three Typhoon cannon mounts... 12.7mm mini mount. 23mm and 30mm?

    The photos above clearly show the 23mm model.

    It is based on the Zu-23 which suggests the 23 x 152mm high velocity round.

    It's currently producing the fast patrol boat & OPV designs of Israel Shipyards, while the Saar S-72 is proposed.

    The 23mm version is mounted on the fast patrol boats, while the 30mm version will be mounted on OPVs.
