    Russia to Receive Reconnaissance Ship to Monitor US Missile Defense in 2016

    The Ivan Khurs communications ship is planned to be launched in the second quarter of 2016, according to a spokesperson of Severnaya Verf shipyard.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian Navy will receive the Ivan Khurs reconnaissance ship, able to monitor US missile defense systems, in December 2016, a spokesperson of Severnaya Verf shipyard said Friday.

    "The Ivan Khurs communications ship is planned to be launched in the second quarter of 2016… Shipbuilders intend to pass the communications ship to the Russian Navy in December 2016," the spokesperson told RIA Novosti.

    The spokesperson added that the Ivan Khurs would significantly outmatch its predecessors.

    On July 1, the head of the Russian United Shipbuilding Corporation order department, Anatoly Shlemov, told RIA Novosti that the Ivan Khurs will monitor US missile defense systems, among other tasks.

    Russia-developed Project 18280 ships are designed to provide communications, support radio-electronic warfare, and carry out intelligence-gathering activities.

The advanced Project 20180TV armament support ship Academician Kovalev built by the Zvezdochka shipyard in Severodvinsk in north Russia has gone to sea for state trials before joining the Russian Navy, shipyard spokeswoman Nadezhda Shcherbina told TASS on Thursday.

    "The armament support ship Academician Kovalev has left the shipyard and gone to sea today [on Thursday] for state trials that will last about a week. The acceptance report will be signed in December," she said. According to the spokeswoman, the shipyard has removed all the ship’s imperfections detected during the shipbuilders’ trials in October.

    Project 21300 (Igor Belousov) search-and-rescue ships

    Post  Backinblack on Mon Dec 28, 2015 9:32 am

    The up-to-date search-and-rescue ship Igor Belousov built at the Admiralteyskie Verfi shipyard in Saint Petersburg was officially handed over to the Russian Navy on Friday, December 25.

    The ship joined the 79th Unit of the Pacific Fleet’s Emergency Response and Rescue Force based in Vladivostok. The ship will be deployed to the Pacific Fleet in spring.

    The rescuer’s cost amounted to 10 bln roubles, said Viktor Bursuk, Navy Deputy Commander-in-Chief for Armament at the handover ceremony. He announced a four-ship series of this project. It is planned to lay the keel of the next ship in 2017, after gaining of practical experience on the Igor Belousov.

    The ship is designed for rescue of wrecked submarine crews. She is equipped with the GVK-450 deep-sea diving system developed by the Russian company Tetis Pro in cooperation with Divex, Scotland.

    The deep-sea rescue system provides operation of 12 divers by 3-men shifts at depths down to 450 meters, six hours per day during three weeks with the further one-time decompression, and for rehabilitation of submariners either escaped from wrecked submarines by the onboard rescue system Bester or left her independently (in a surfacing cabin or by free ascent).

    As a reminder, the Russian nuclear-powered submarine Kursk sank on August 12, 2000 in the Barents Sea at the depth of 108 meters. Rescue facilities available to the Russian Navy at that time failed to rescue the submariners.

    That large crane will allow large pallets of ammo and stores to be transferred I suspect... probably including missiles for the UKSK vertical launch system...

    It would be used to resupply Russian military vessels at sea with weapons... so this vessel could meet a destroyer in the persian gulf and rearm it with cruise missiles after it has launched an attack so it can be fully armed and ready to engage more targets without returning to port.

    From Nevsky Shipyard
    Nevsky Shipyard launched the medium-sized sea tanker “Academician Pashin”
    On May 26th 2016 Nevsky Shipyard launched the medium-sized sea tanker “Academician Pashin” (23130 project).

    Tanker “Academician Pashin” is the biggest vessel ever launched at Nevsky Shipyard for more than its centenary history.

    A lot of work on modernization of the Shipyard slip was done before the tanker launching. Because of completed works the weight of launched vessels has increased up to 4 000 tons, and their length has reached 150 meters.

    The construction of the ship is being carried out in accordance with the State Contract for the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation. The project is developed by Spetssudoproect, JSC.

    Good snaps from the site. Posting it all coz I loved it.  Very Happy

    For those who have info on these...

    Project 23130 (April 2014, Nevsky) and Project 23131 (Dec 2014, Zaliv) are both tanker projects and there was some reports of construction of Project 23131 having stopped at Zaliv shipyard in Kerch.

    So what had happened and what did I miss?  confused
    Is there still any project for tankers going on @ Zaliv?

    Laying down @ Zaliv
    http://www.kerch.com.ru/articleview.aspx?id=43298



    From the above article the 23131 spec quoted was 145 meters long with a beam of 24 meters, deadweight – 12,000 tons, which are from translated text.
    That deadweight looks misquoted (?), as the 23130 have a deadweight of 5,000t and 9,000t @ 7m draught to make up its 14,000t max displacement.

    Or is it a new larger tanker whose deadweight is 12,000t? In which case it translates into a tanker with more than 20,000 ton max displacement.

    For comparison, Indian Navy's newer Italian built fleet tanker (which used commercial standard steel, developed crack in hull in rough seas near Portugal during her voyage to India accompanying INS Vikramaditya) have an overall length of 175 meter, beam of 25 meter with a displacement of 27,000 tonnes maximum.

    Also, repeating a question that I had asked earlier. Does anyone have any info regarding what design Russia had submitted for Indian Navy's fleet tanker requirements?
    Or is it the 23131 that Russia offered?
