    I personally dont see the need of pr.22460 except for filling the pockets of those behind this project. Russian MoD should instead be adding more of pr.22160 ships.

    w.r.t to pr.21300 Igor Belousov, is there any plans to replace the non-Russian stuff with Russian ones?

    And, does anyone have any info or details regarding the large refueller/replenishment ship that Russia submitted for Indian Navy's tanker tender. The contract was eventually won (& also delivered) by the Italians by using lower grade steel and lower pricing, not to mention the Italian connection which could also have played in that deal.

    Russia’s Navy Receives Newest Russian-Built Oceanographic Research Vessel



    The Russian Navy has received a brand new oceanographic research vessel, the Yantar, which is equipped with two self-propelled deep submergence vehicles; the ship was built at the Russian Baltic shipyard of the same name, Yantar, and is slated to be used for deep-sea research and rescue operations.

    The Russian Navy on Saturday took delivery of a new oceanographic research vessel.

    The ship has been christened the Yantar, the Russian word for amber. It was named after Russia’s Baltic shipyard in Kaliningrad it was built at, which bears the same name, Yantar; the Russian exclave is known for its amber.

    The vessel, also known as Project 22010, is designed for deepwater research. The 108.1m-long vessel, with a beam of 17.2m, was developed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau in St. Petersburg.

    The propulsion system includes two fixed pitch propellers and two bow thrusters. The ship carries the latest, most innovative equipment for acoustic, biological, physical, and geophysical surveys. It has a displacement of 5,200 tons, a maximum speed of 15 knots, a range of 8,000nm, and can accommodate a crew of 60 members.

    The vessel's equipment includes at least two deepwater, autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) Rus and Konsul, which can be used for rescue operations.

    Konsul and Rus – a new class of Russian military deepwater submerge vehicles. They are somewhat smaller than the well-known Mirs, accommodating a crew of two instead of three, but are purely domestically produced vessels and have a higher maximum depth due to their titanium pressure hulls: during the tests the original Konsul dove to the 6,270 m.

    “The Yantar is equipped with a unique on-board scientific research complex which enables it to collect data on the ocean environment, both in motion and on hold. There are no similar complexes anywhere,” said the head of the deepwater research department at the Russian Defense Ministry, Alexei Burilichev.

    Yantar has entered service in Russia’s Northern Fleet.

    Russia's advanced armament support ship to start trials in September

    The ice-reinforced vessel was designed for loading, unloading and transporting weapons

    ARKHANGELSK, September1. /TASS/. The advanced armament support ship Academician Kovalyov built by the Zvyozdochka shipyard in Severodvinsk in northwest Russia will start seagoing trials by late September, a shipyard spokesperson told TASS on Tuesday.

    "The Academician Kovalyov is expected to take to the sea for the first time approximately in the third ten-day period of September for sea trials", the spokesperson said.

    As was reported earlier by the shipyard, the ship is to be delivered to the Russian Navy before the year-end.

    The Academician Kovalyov was launched in the summer of 2014 to be completed afloat. The ice-reinforced vessel was designed for loading, unloading and transporting weapons. It is 107.6 m long, with a beam of 17.8 m, a total displacement of 6,300 tons and a crew of 60. The Russian Defense Ministry awarded the contract for the ship's construction in September 2011.

    The Project 20180TV ship was designed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau. The Academician Kovalyov is a derivative of the Zvyozdochka seagoing rescue towboat built by the Severodvinsk shipyard and delivered to the Navy in 2010.

    In July, the Severodvinsk shipyard laid down the armament support ship Academician Makeyev, the fourth special vessel in the project's series designated for the Russian Navy. The ship was named after Viktor Makeyev, a distinguished Russian scientist and engineer, a general designer of submarine-based ballistic missiles (1924-85).

    Upgraded missile range instrumentation ship to support launches at Vostochny cosmodrome

    The Project 1914.1 Marshal Krylov measurement ship with a displacement of 23,700 tons was launched on July 24, 1987 and remains the only Russian ship in its class, outfitted for space communications

    MOSCOW, September 16. /TASS/. The upgrade of the Marshal Krylov missile range instrumentation ship will facilitate launches of space rockets from the Vostochny cosmodrome, Andrei Obukhov, chief designer of the Baltsudoproyekt design bureau (an affiliate of the Krylov state scientific center), told TASS on Wednesday.

    "We are working on modernization of the Project 1914.1 Marshal Krylov ship operated by the [Russian Navy] Pacific Fleet. Improvements in the ship’s measurement equipment will enable it to support rocket launches from the Vostochny cosmodrome that is being built now," he said.

    According to the chief designer of Baltsudoproyekt that developed the Project 1914.1 ship, "the Marshal Krylov is under our continuous supervision because we are installing specialized equipment and extending its service life under the government-awarded contract."

    Obukhov said that the Marshal Krylov had come to Vladivostok for the upgrade in October 2014. The upgrade is being performed by the Dalzavod shipyard.

    The Project 1914.1 Marshal Krylov measurement ship with a displacement of 23,700 tons was launched on July 24, 1987 and remains the only Russian ship in its class, outfitted for space communications, and one of the largest and best-equipped Russian Navy ships. It operates in support of flight tests of advanced spacecraft, launch vehicles and cruise and ballistic missiles. Measuring 200-plus meters in length and having a crew of about 350, the Marshal Krylov has a speed of 22 knots and can carry two Kamov Ka-27 (NATO reporting name Helix) search and rescue helicopters.

    The average sea tanker of 23130 project "Academician Pashin" was laid at "Nevsky shipbuilding-Shiprepair plant" (Leningrad region) on April 26, 2014.

    LLC "Nevsky shipbuilding-Shiprepair plant" is located in 40 km from St. Petersburg in the city of Shlisselburg on the left Bank of the Neva river and is one of the oldest enterprises of water transport in North-West Russia. Is engaged in shipbuilding since 1952. Builds sea and river vessels of various types and purposes and all kinds of ship repair. Slipway for rising of vessels of Nevsky plant allows to launch and lift for repairs the vessels up to 140 meters and dock weight up to 3000 tons.
