    Kinda surprised at another for Pella without a 2nd at Kerch/starting one at Zelenodolsk.

    Edit:
    Hurricane, Typhoon, Storm, Squall & Tempest, appropriately boisterous names, though with a class name Black Widow kinda weird not to be using insect names?

    Zelenodolsk probably still has production capacities clogged up because of engine delays for Buyans that are under construction there. At least that would be my best guess.

    Maybe they think that ''RNS Termite'' does not have the same ring to it?   lol1

    18 in Pella alone? Damn, they are really embracing that whole ''distributed lethality'' concept.

    Smart move, give the low level gig to these things and free up bigger ships for proper work.


    Also, noticing anything different on this plate?

    Interesting that it appears to be a late addition to the plate, can see the darker outline of AK-630 as on the earlier plates Suspect
    Someone forgot to send the updated profile to the laser guy or late finalisation that the naval Pantsir would actually be on this one?

    18 in Pella alone?
    Well 18 was the total build quoted for a while, Pella own the Kerch shipyard so ships built there can be called 'built by Pella' & if Zelenodolsk is too busy...

    Edit: also some pics of the 76mm gun from Balancer forum

    LCS be cryin' so hard Sad (Via Balancers again)

    Seems to confirm the panel radar only on front faces of the mast.
    Also note that the plate shows the Pantsir up on a pedestal with the top nearly same height as the mast while the model & render show it quite a lot lower. Wonder which will prove correct?

    Neither. Both are just promo guesswork. We won't know for certain until first one is floated out.

    Remember first image of this thing? It showed AK CIWS instead of Pantsir. Not exactly tiny detail.

    God knows what else will change later on. And don't get me started on difference between original Buyan and Buyan-M version. That was one crazy upgrade. I am sure Karakurts will be getting crazy as well later in production.

    According to this Vostochnaya Verf Vladivostok might get contact to build 22800 ships:

    Makes sense since Komsomolsk-on-Amur is out.
    They're building some Rubin class patrol ships.

    That's a Coast Guard contract. Those are fine ships (not warships but lot bigger than Karakurts), more of them the better.

    And I wouldn't say they are out. They still have those Buyan-Ms that got delayed over engines and taking up space so until they sort that out they will not he able to commit to anything new.

    Although I assumed they would be building Okean class and not Rubin. Probably imported parts problem again so they switched to Rubin.

    Now if Navy would only apply this multiple shipyard approach to frigates it would be fantastic....

    Crap, you are right. Embarassed

    I mixed up Komsomolsk with Zelenodolsk. Russian cities can get confusing...

    Another Karakurt laid down at Feodosia, Crimea. Name is Ohotsk. russia

    This is second in Crimea and sixth overall I think. Nice, this is how you build a ship class! thumbsup

    Sweet Smile

    Different pic of the plate via Balancer

    Plate has gained a couple of radomes that have been missing on previous ones, Pantsir mount is still on the raised plinth.
    Compare with


    Video but not really anything interesting to see

    Would have been nice to see progress pic of the other one cry

    http://flotprom.ru/2017/%D0%97%D0%B2%D0%B5%D0%B7%D0%B4%D0%B02/
    Zvezda has hired 100 more staff but are still behind on engine production.

    http://flotprom.ru/2017/%D0%97%D0%B2%D0%B5%D0%B7%D0%B4%D0%B03/
    They've also launched a new transmission production facility.


    Also, photo of Uragan from December. Anything new on it or just business as usual?
    Very similar to the one George1 posted in Dec.
    Main thing is the radar panel holes in the mast (still no sign of clarification as to what actual radar is going there), some bridge window holes. In the George1 pic you can see there seems to be a size issue with fairleads on the bow.

    Edit: Another angle from Dec

    I am really pleased to see that the "More" shipyard in Feodosiya (Crimea) is now seriously back in the naval shipbuilding business.

    More (Feodosiya) and Zaliv (Kerch) are the two Crimean shipyards that churned up large numbers of warships in Soviet times. From small torpedo boats to frigates. They are both back in business now. Zaliv even built a nuclear powered large icebreaker/cargo ship (the Sevmorput).

    The return of Crimea to Russia in 2014 is thus far the greatest event of the 21st century.

    I think thats actually a fair statement. The return of Crimea to Mother Russia is of ENORMOUS importance and is a 1st-class geo-political victory of the highest order. Crimea, more than anything else, explains the fatal level of butthurt exhibited by the feckless Uh'Murikkkanz and their mewling Eurotrash sycophants.

    More (Feodosiya) and Zaliv (Kerch)
    Reading back through the thread I seem to have got quite mixed up on that Embarassed

    The return of Crimea to Russia in 2014 is thus far the greatest event of the 21st century.
    Without getting all political its quite amazing how stark the difference is between all the places US has invaded/regime changed & Crimea: (almost) Everywhere the US has been involved is quite thoroughly borked as a result angry Crimea is better off & undergoing a massive modernisation including breakneck paced construction of the long dreamed of Kerch strait bridge cheers
