The solemn ceremony is being attended by Chief of the Russian Navy Main Staff Vice-Admiral Andrei Volozhinsky, Head of the Defense Ministry’s State Defense Order Provision Department Andrei Vernigora and Admiralty Wharves CEO Alexander Buzakov. "Today, after a five-year break, we’re floating out a new vessel - a supply ice-breaker with large functional capabilities. Symbolically, the nuclear-powered ice-breaker Lenin was laid down at this slipway 60 years ago," Buzakov said.

    The Ilya Muromets was laid down on April 23, 2015. The vessel displaces 6,000 tons, has a sea endurance of 9,000 miles and can operate autonomously for 60 days. The ice-breaker’s crew will total 35. The Ilya Muromets is designed both for the ice-breaking functions and the capabilities of a sea-going tug and a patrol ship."


    Just over 1 year build time?  That sounds very quick for 6kT displacement vessel Very Happy   It puts paid to the tiresome myth promulgated by our corrupt corporate MSM hacks that Russians can't build ships....

    Yes, it seems Russian shipyards could build ships quite quickly. I think the main problem, that they build new corvettes and frigates that long is in new generation armament, sensors and electronic equipment with all those installations, tunings, testings, etc.

    That is fast.
    They seem to be getting a good number of auxiliaries online.

    Were the azipods built in Russia or imported?

    The Navy seems keen to keep this shipyard in work. The boat looks like an updated E-Boat from WW2.

    A contract for two boats of torpedolike the project 1388Н3 June 18th, 0:03 http://bmpd.livejournal.com/1968526.html

    As reported in the published annual report of OJSC "Sokolskaya Sudoverf" (Sokol'skoye, Nizhny Novgorod oblast) for 2015, the company in the reporting year, has signed a state contract for construction for the Russian Navy of two boats-torpedolab the project 1388Н3 (serial numbers 451 and 452) for delivery in 2018 and 2019, respectively.




    Boat torpedoman TL-1603 project 1388 Baltic fleet (C) www.arms-expo.ru

    Interestingly, these boats-torpedolike must be created on the basis of a draft 1388Н3 serially built on Sokolskaya shipyard boats communication, a project which he, in turn, is based on the boat design-torpedolike 1388 (the last was built for the Navy at Sosnovskoye shipyard from 1974 to 1990 in the amount of 39 units). Project 1388 (code "Cormorant") was developed by design Bureau "Vympel". We can assume that the phrase "on the basis of the project 1388Н3" means the use of imported engines (project 1388Н3 used Carterpillar diesel engines 3512В).

    In addition to the conclusion of the contract the two-boats-torpedolike, OJSC "Sokolskaya Sudoverf", according to its report, handed over in 2015, the Russian defense Ministry two ships-target project 436бис (factory numbers 020 and 021) and continued to build another communication boat project 1388Н3 (serial number 403). Military orders make up 99.8% of the production of the small shipyard (172 employees).

    Since 2006 the company has passed the Ministry of defense of Russia, eight of the target vessels project 436бис (with serial numbers for 014 021) and three communication boat project 1388Н/H3 (serial number 482, 401, and 402). In October 2014, was signed state contract for the supply of another three boats when the project 1388Н3 (factory room 403 at 405) for delivery in 2017-2019 years.

    It's not a war ship but a support vessel used for testing. If anything the naval support fleet was older and in worse shape then it's combat fleet. Over a hundred new ones are being built between 2011-2020.

    Bookmark the small marine tanker "Vasily Nikitin"

    As reported on March 10, 2017 by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Entrepreneurship of the Nizhny Novgorod region, a small marine project tanker 03182 for the Russian Navy was built at JSC "Shipbuilding Plant" Volga "in Nizhny Novgorod.

    According to our information, the tanker was named "Vasily Nikitin" (serial number 851) in honor of Colonel-General V.V. Nikitin (1914 - 1994), from 1954 to 1984 he was the head of the Fuel Supply Administration (since 1967 - the Central Directorate for the Supply of Missile Fuel and Fuel, since 1979 - the Central Directorate for Missile Fuel and Fuel) of the USSR Ministry of Defense.

    This is the second small marine tanker project 03182 under construction at the Volga plant. The tanker 03182 "Vice Admiral of the Ferries" (plant number 850), the main tanker for the enterprise, was laid on September 1, 2016.

    JSC Shipbuilding Plant Volga in 2016 concluded a contract with the Ministry of Defense of Russia for the construction of two small sea tankers of Project 03182 for the Black Sea Fleet (home port - Sevastopol), with delivery in 2019 and 2020.

    The project developer 03182 (code "Platform-Arctic", originally designated as project 23310) is JSC "Zelenodolsk Design Bureau".


    Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of Russia in 2014-2015 concluded contracts for the construction of four small marine tankers for the Navy project 03182, two of which should be built JSC Zelenodolsky Plant named after AM Gorky (part of the group of companies JSC Holding Company Ak Bars ") in Zelenodolsk, and two more tankers for the Pacific Fleet - JSC" Vostochnaya Verf "in Vladivostok.

    The contract for the first two tankers of Project 03182 (factory numbers 9001 and 9002) was signed with the "Eastern Shipyard" on September 1, 2014. The construction of the main tanker of this project with the factory number 9001, officially launched on October 27, 2015 as Mikhail Barskov, was launched at the East Shipyard in early 2015, and the Navy ship is scheduled for November 2017. Currently, the "Eastern Shipyard" is also building a second tanker (serial number 9002) with delivery by November 2019.

    Information on the construction of tankers of project 03182 at the Zelenodolsk plant is not yet available, but it is possible that their actual construction will be carried out at the Zaliv shipbuilding plant in Kerch.

    The small marine tanker project 03182 is designed as a "multipurpose platform of a reinforced ice class vessel to provide the concept of Arctic vessels for the transport of liquid and dry cargoes, discharges and people with the possibility of receiving helicopter equipment (including unmanned aerial vehicles) and performing rescue operations." In addition to receiving, storing, transporting and transferring liquid cargo, the project tanker 03182 is also designed to supply ships and vessels with cargoes in a barrel, boxes, pallets, containers, etc .; Collection of bilge, sewage-fecal waters, dry debris and food waste; Patrolling, rescue duty in the areas of navigation, fishing, offshore oil and gas fields; Search and assistance to ships in distress; Technical support in areas dangerous for navigation; Maintenance of transport operations in ports; Removal from the shoals and reefs of emergency vessels; Pumping water from flooded compartments and towing emergency ships and objects to the shelter, including in ice; Performance of functions of the fire vessel.

    The tanker project 03182 ice class Arc4 should have a total displacement of 3,500 tons, deadweight 1560 dwt, 75 m long, 15.4 m wide, draft in full load of 5 m and be equipped with a power plant with screwdriver columns (according to the latest information - the Chinese production).

    Kind of funny they call it a tanker, its too tiny to carry a meaningful fuel load.
    I guess some kind of translation issue from an equivalent to 'multipurpose support ship'? dunno

    Maybe they just think it'll look better in western media than 'Ocean going tug'

    Quite a cute little thing really I love you

    So with these two in Nizhny Novgorod that would be 6 in total so far, right?

    Almaz Shipbuilding Company to Build Icebreaker of Project 21180M for Russian Navy

    A private factory will build a cheaper version of Iliya Muromets for the Ministry of Defense informs that the Almaz Shipbuilding Company of St. Petersburg will receive a state contract by the end of the year to build a shallow-draft icebreaker with a displacement of 4,000 tons and a cost of about 6 billion rubles. The ship will become a cheaper version of the icebreaker "Ilya Muromets", which at the end of the year will be completed by the Admiralty shipyards, which are part of the USC.



    The Ministry of Defense will conclude a contract with the shipbuilding company Almaz Shipbuilding Company in St. Petersburg for a year to build a shallow icebreaker. A source in the industry told Kommersant. According to Kommersant's information, the icebreaker will cost the defense ministry 5-6 billion rubles. The Navy will use it to independently conduct warships and ships in ice conditions, towing and delivery of cargo to remote areas of the Navy.

    The ship will become an analog of the project 21180 "Ilya Muromets" under construction at the Admiralty Shipyards. "The Defense Ministry decided that they would not build a series of large icebreakers: they would cost too much." Almaz will build a smaller version that will cost less, "a source in the industry told Kommersant.

    The technical project of Ilya Muromets was developed by the Nizhny Novgorod project bureau of OJSC KB Vympel. It is also developing a project 21180M, according to which Almaz will build a shallow icebreaker. The displacement of the new ship will be 1.5 times less than that of Ilya Muromets: the icebreaker being built at the Admiralty Shipyards will push out water with a total mass of 6,000 tons, and a shallow-draft icebreaker-4,000 tons. [What a syllable!]

    According to "Kommersant", in 2017, the Ministry of Defense provides meager funding for the construction of the project 21180M. Within a year, Almaz will receive about 100 million rubles, or about 1.5% of the cost of the entire project.

    JSC Shipbuilding Company Almaz specializes in the construction of border patrol boats for the FSB. In 2015, the private plant received revenues of 7.8 billion rubles, in 2016 turnover fell to 7.4 billion rubles. The company's profit fell almost twofold: from 1.4 billion rubles to 762.5 million rubles. Admiralty shipyards, building diesel-electric submarines and ice-class vessels for the Defense Ministry, receive a much larger volume of state orders. In 2015, the plant, which is part of the USC, received 5.3 billion rubles in profit at a revenue of 45 billion rubles. Last year, the results of the Admiralty shipyards declined slightly. The profit amounted to 5.2 billion rubles, revenue - 44.9 billion rubles.

    In KB "Vympel", "Kommersant" was told that the technical design of the new vessel is not yet ready and is under development. In the SF Almaz during the day, questions were not answered by Kommersant.

    Reconnaissance ship "Ivan Khurs" is taken out of the shed

    On May 3, 2017, at the Severnaya Verf Shipyard in St. Petersburg, a second reconnaissance ship of the project 18280, Ivan Khurs, was constructed for the open slipway.



    The medium-sized reconnaissance ship project 18280 "Ivan Khurs" (the designer - JSC "Central Design Bureau" Iceberg ") was laid at the "Northern Shipyard" on November 14, 2013.

    In the Black Sea Fleet two more boats "Raptor"

    As reported on May 8, 2017 Sevastopol web resource Forpost-Sevastopol.RU, the Black Sea Fleet replenished with two new anti-sabotage boats P-415 and P-425 project 03160 "Raptor." This was reported to Forpost-Sevastopol.RU correspondent by the head of the information support department of the Black Sea Fleet Captain First Rank Vyacheslav Truhachev.

    "The Andreevskiye Navy flags were solemnly raised in Sevastopol on the two new anti-sabotage boats P-415 and P-425 of the Raptor project," the report said.

    Trukhachev stressed that with the reception of new high-speed boats their number in the compound of the protection of the water area of ​​the Crimean naval base increased to eight.

    Boats can deliver up to 20 marines to their destination, are capable of intercepting and detaining small-scale surface targets and performing search and rescue functions. The length of the boat is approximately 17 meters, width - about four meters. Raptor can accelerate up to 50 knots.





    The bmpd comment. Apparently, the P-415 and the P-425 are the first two boats of the project 03160 (building numbers 709 and 710) built by OAO Leningrad Pellet Shipyard (Otradnoye, Leningrad Region) under a new contract for the construction of eight boats of this type, concluded The Ministry of Defense of Russia in May 2016. The launch of both boats at Pella was carried out on December 14, 2016.

    Earlier, under the previous contract in 2014, the Pella plant passed to the Ministry of Defense of Russia eight project 03160 vessels during 2015 - four planned for the 2014 program and four under the 2015 program. Of these boats, seven (building numbers from 701 to 705 and from 707 to 708) are officially listed in the Russian Navy as anti-sabotage boats. In fact, according to known data, these boats are used in fleets as part of naval reconnaissance points for special purposes. Of these, two boats (P-280 and P-281, the corresponding building numbers 705 and 704) are part of the Baltic Fleet, based on Kronstadt, and the remaining five (P-274, P-275, P-276, P-838, P-845) - are part of the Black Sea Fleet, based on Novorossiysk and Sevastopol.

    Another cutter of project 03160 P-344 with building number 706, commissioned in August 2015, was built in the form of a communications boat - in fact, as a traveling boat for VIP transport. Formally considered to be part of the Baltic Fleet, the P-344 boat is constantly moored at the berth complex-landing stage DBR-481 of project 02590 of the National Defense Management Center of the Russian Federation on the Frunzenskaya embankment of the Moskva River, and, apparently, is used as a personal patrol boat of the Minister of Defense Russia.

    The head boat (prototype) of the RM-15 project 03160 Raptor, designed and built by Pella on the instructions of the Russian Navy, was launched at the plant on August 15, 2013 and handed over to the Navy in 2014, also now being part of the Black Sea Fleet. Thus, "Pella" has built in total already 11 boats project 03160.
