    To add to your list, another 6 are to be built for the Pacific Fleet possibly at the Amur Shipyard.

    thumbsup interesting. That means that they will replace other classes also in Russian Navy, not just 21631 of BLS fleet

    Definitely. There are loads of smaller ships in inventory like Nanuchka-class that will need replacement soon and Karakurts not only fit the bill but also dwarf them when it comes to capability.

    And production rate is damn good, 12 under construction already with 6 more to start in Pacific and that's just first series.

    This project is also "entry exam" for Pella as a naval shipbuilder. It is already clear that they are capable of handling bigger stuff. Once they finish this first batch of Karakurts in St. Pete they should be given Derzkii class to work on.

    Construction of following Karakurts can proceed at Crimea afterwards.

    Expect them to work in conjuncture with the 21631 and replace the others.

    Why would there have to be a sonar because it's a corvette, regardless of the fact that it is actually a missile boat.

    A corvette, by "definition", is the smallest of the "actual" fighting ships, but it can never be a frigate or a destroyer, you need a frigate size ship (105 -120m min.) at least to be able to fit all the weapons an sensors for all the possible threats, surface, air and subsurface.

    A corvette is usually a 75 to 90 meter long ship, that size allows only so much, don't be misled by the size of something like the 20380 ships, these are frigates in all the ways that something can be a frigate, regardless of the official designation as corvettes.

    Current trends are such that a 90 long ship is either going to be:
    1. A long range patrol ship with a helicopter and guns and a potential for anti snip missiles.
    2. A dedicated ASW ship with sonar, towed array etc. but only short range air defense based, quite often, only on guns.
    3. A fighting ship with some restrictions in some of the offensive capabilities, usually solid anti snip weapons, god guns and a short to medium SAM system at best, but with limited number of missiles, usually 16 in case of medium range or around 30 or so for short range (IR guided), a ship like this certainly could have a sonar dome and small torpedo launchers but the existence of a medium SAM and ASW weapons prevents you from having room for a helicopter, that's where you need the extra 10 -15 meters.

    A try multi purpose fighting ship starts with the size of a frigate.

    The order for the construction of six small missile ships project 22800 can get the Amur plant

    As reported by the newspaper Kommersant in an article by Herman Kostrinsky, "Karakurt" will be smeared at the shipyards. The Defense Ministry will place an order for the construction of six small missile ships of Project 22800 for the Pacific Fleet at the Amur Shipyard, part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) in 2018. The first 12 ships of the series are being built for the Navy by the Leningrad Pellet Shipyard and Zelenodolsk Shipbuilding Plant named after Gorky, which are not included in the USC. The solution fits into the concept of uniform distribution of orders. At the Ministry of Defense, the solution is explained by convenient logistics.

    The Ministry of Defense has determined where to place the order for the construction of the third part of the series of small missile ships (MRK) of Project 22800 Karakurt.
    Yesterday, during the ceremony of launching the main IRA unit Uragan at the Pella shipbuilding plant in the Leningrad Region, Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov announced that the order will be received by the Amur Shipbuilding Plant (ASZ) in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, owned by USC.

    All six ships will serve in the Pacific Fleet, therefore their manufacture in the western part of Russia in the military department is considered inexpedient because of the high costs for subsequent transfer to the duty station. "There are plans to contract six more ships from 2018. Most likely, they will build the Amur Shipyard, because they are intended for the Pacific Fleet. Because of the complex logistics, it is more expedient to build in the Far East, giving the loading to the shipbuilding assets, "explained the logic of the selection of the executing agent of the deputy defense minister.

    According to him, the Ministry of Defense hopes that the construction of one MRK will not exceed two years, which is very short for military ships. The head company "Uragan" launched yesterday in water was laid in December 2015 and should be transferred to the fleet in December 2017.

    In total, the ministry ordered 12 series ships for today. Contracts for seven of them are concluded with the shipyard "Pella" Herbert Tsaturov, who also holds the post of general director at the enterprise. According to him, of the number of MRKs ordered, four will be built on the main production site in the Leningrad region, three more will be built at the Feodosia shipyard "More", the capacity of which Pella leases from the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation. Construction of five more ships is being carried out by the Zelenodolsk plant named after Gorky in Tatarstan, some of which, according to Kommersant's information, will be built at the Zaliv shipbuilding plant, controlled by the enterprise, in Kerch. In the course of the Naval Salon of 2015 in St. Petersburg, the ex-commander-in-chief of the Navy Viktor Chirkov said that the Navy would order at least 18 ships. The decision to build them was made in connection with the delay in the construction of the frigates of the project 11356 at the Kaliningrad plant "Yantar" (see "Kommersant" on July 2, 2015). In the USC decided to suspend the construction of three ships of the series due to the lack of power plants, which because of the foreign policy conflict between Russia and Ukraine did not deliver the Nicholas Zorya-Mashproekt. Subsequently, the frigates were decided to equip the Rybinsk NPO Saturn with Russian gas turbine units. Project 22800 is equipped with diesel engines of the St. Petersburg PJSC "Zvezda".

    The ships of Project 22800 will be equipped with cruise missiles Caliber and anti-ship missiles "Onyx", artillery installation AK-176. According to Yuri Borisov, "Karakurts" will get naval anti-aircraft missile system "Pantsir-M" from the third series ship.
