    Don't get me wrong russia will use these like DD's for awhile since they won't have anything bigger in mass for awhile.

    Karakut is a good ship or it's mission which is a deep water patrol ship.

    They aren't meant to replace them sure, but destroyers in the RuN are diminishing in numbers year after year, decade after decade. Frigate production seems to have stalled too.

    they have Grigorovitch and project 21956 but russian navy wants more modern ships to make them the backbone for their navy. They don't really know how to design their futur ships. We had gorshkov but now they want something bigger. We have lider design but its unlikly to see them anytime soon. So they build Karakurt to replace at least their old small corvettes and missiles boats with a ship that has UKSK, which is not bad at all.

    But I would love to see a more modern 21956 with more UKSK. Because they have a real S-300 on board (or S-400F if they could navalize the S-400) with long range missiles or quad pack 9M96 missiles.
    The design is based on Udaloy I think so they won't have issues building them.

    Ok, first off, is the Pantsir that's going on this ship not gonna be armed with the new 40km range missiles??

    As for Frigates, as far as i am aware of construction of the Grigorovichs have restarted.
    And recently by some Christmas miracle, a second Gorshkov has entered sea-trails.

    Yes eight years certainly is a miracle for a 5k frigate.

    Easy everybody, we all know the problems that they are facing in the shipbuilding industry, from the technical neglect of the 90s to the general corruption, thing are nevertheless moving in the right direction, at slow pace but moving.

    By the start of 2020 we will see a significant increase if the Russian Navy's potential, more importantly the "update program" of the smaller FAC and "missile boat" fleet will be mostly over at that point (75%+) and the shipyards will be able to concentrate their efforts on bigger ships.

    We will see a significant amount of ships being commissioned in these year alone and in the next.

    Depends on the DD type 45 is meh, I do not defend it. However that doesn't justify this frigate mess either.

    Ask Spain like kilo said floated out their frigates which are equally armed and in size in two years.

    How would I fix it? Cannot really answer this, you'd have to start the kremlin tho.

    Frankly, these shipyards are getting away with it because the government is allowing it.

    Corrupt guys etc, list goes on and on.

    Technical issues that lead to delays I can understand

    However refusal to lay down new ships is absolutely idiotic, by the time​ they get even close to welding hull together those problematic components will be sorted out

    Someone is either fucking up or having another round of megalomaniac fantasies about some destroyer centic fleet again just when they have chance to finally sort out entire surface fleet by using frigates

    Actually it's just fuckup either way

    There is corruption as everywhere. But Spaniards what did they do? Well if success is to build a hull and put ready components and et voila then yes.
    develop GEturbines? Italian guns? ESSM missiles? radars? AEGIS integrated by Honeywell?

    Russians started many years ago where were less money and shipyards started to move after decades of under-funding. Could it be better? alwasy. If this a shit? absolutely no.

    I didn't quote you mentioning Aegis. The rest they have and can adapt to a frigate design. Simply evolving the Grigorovich would take them that far.

    Oh come on, can we just talk 22800 here?

    Gorshkov was an attempt to make a fully new system from scratch, got caught in concurrency hell so they started to build the Grigoroviches which like the Spanish frigates used (mostly) existing systems with a slightly modified existing design expecting a quick build.
    Some things went a bit haywire (a bit of concurrency with the upgraded bits vs Indian 11356 and the bit where external suppliers stopped providing stuff especially engines) but the intent was clearly correct.

    Meanwhile they're building missile boats.
    Though it may appear to be in lieu of Frigates -> pathetic, the existing fleet contains a bunch of ageing missile boats in need of replacement & its perfectly sensible to be building replacements (which they can because these have been designed with full domestic systems).

    All the new vessels they are building are multirole... they have never had a multirole vessel that was smaller than a cruiser before.

    Test it for this and test it for that and then test it for this and that... it takes extra time.

    Perhaps if the British had fully tested their ships they would still have the Sheffield.

    Imagine losing your CIWS when you use satellite transmissions to London from the South Atlantic...

    The point is that the new systems are modular... once they get them working right they can start mass producing them for the entire fleet... and even scaling up the designs to make destroyers and cruisers.

    It would be nice if they design a sub class for ASW armed with torpedo and 4 tubes UKSK with torpedo kalibrs and RBU lunchers instead of the gun and pantsirs.

    Another version that would be good would be an anti air version with just Shtill lunchers and Tor (with new VLS able to fit lot of missiles not like previous one on Udaloys) and jammers and without antiship missiles. Just to protect the country from cruise missiles and air attack. One can protect 80km of litoral with shtill so 800 km can be protected by 10 of them, 20 can protect 1600km. That would be a really hard defence line to go through especialy that Tor can destroy all the munitions you lunch at them and that you can put S-300 on the coast to have a long range system coupled with them.

    With such boats in great quantities, the operation in Lybia would never have succeeded.

    RuN needs Frigates and destroyers in sufficient quantities, as well as corvettes. But not only corvettes.

    NATO's SSK fleet in the Med can have a field day with such easy targets, they can erase them as it is, within a week or so.

    Shtil-1 on such small boat? ekhm are you sure? thsi is not only place but also weight and place for radars.

    Libya happened because UN SC gave permission "creatively extended" by aggressors.  And for saturation attacks there is no defense invented yet Smile

    Not with fleet. Those boats are for A2/AD operations against fleet (5 of them is still a salvo of 40 supersonic and soon hypersonic ASW missiles). But they cannot work alone of course. They need external AA defences as well sub ones.

    Yeah but they won't have frigates and destroyers in big numbers. Even if they have they will send them fight other ships.

    What I mean is to have corvettes with  just surface to air capacities and antiship missiles. Send the 10 km from your shores and make a line of defences by espacing each corvette by the range of their missiles like 80 km from each other (if shtil has 40km range).

    Shtil-1 on such small boat? ekhm are you sure? thsi is not only place but also weight and place for radars.

    Why not. A non armoured luncher with 12 missiles for shtill at the back and some Tors at the front. Israeli proved that you can put anything you want on small ships. I agree if they keep the same lunchers as we have seen on udaloys and Grigorovitch it won't work, but they could design a non armoured version that is not as heavy.




    Libya happened because UN SC gave permission "creatively extended" by aggressors.  And for saturation attacks there is no defense invented yet Smile

    Yeah but if you have this line of defences you can destroy lot of tomahawks and even send an ASW corvettes try to destroy the sub while on the sea those tomahawks can't use the terrain to hide from potentiel surface to air missiles and escape them because it's the sea so they will be detected for sure before they reach the "ground" or the country.

    We saw that S-400 couldn't do anything in Syria because of the mountains and the road taken by the tomahawks. That's why I think it is a nice idea to put mid range and short range missiles on a same plateform and saturate the coast with them to detect everything trying to go through. Add some frigate with Redut and some land base S-400 and nothing will go through while you can Attack the enmy ships and subs easily from the air and the ground.

    I mean they created Tor for destroying guided munition and in the navy they barely don't use them. Same with shtill. They are really cheap systems with great capabilities but don't use them efficiently. They mounted tor on a destroyer like Udaloy and shtill on Sovs while they could have build a single destroyer with both of them.

    They just don't adopt the formidable IADS they have for they land forces to the navy forces. It would have been such a better navy if they did that. Even the S-300FM isn't use propelly. Look how china managed to put it into frigates and small destroy while russians are just putting it into the biggest ship they have ...

    Maybe the plateform is to small. I agree. They could use something biger and much more simplier. But they are planing to use lot of karakirt so it would be cheaper to use the same plateform for this.

    What I mean is to have corvettes with just surface to air capacities and antiship missiles. Send the 10 km from your shores and make a line of defences by espacing each corvette by the range of their missiles like 80 km from each other (if shtil has 40km range).

    The defence of Russian territory is the job of Aerospace defence forces... why waste your navy to do that role?

    And these corvettes can carry 40km range mach 2 ballistic torpedoes to take out any modern submarine without warning.. who says they lack ASW capability?

    Making them better by restricting their armament to one job is not making them better, it is making them worse and less able to operate on their own or in small groups.

    These vessels have excellent communications systems and even two vessels can cooperate like an IADS and share targets in the air, on land, on water, and under water.

    Why make them weaker?

    The defence of an attack with Tomahawks wont be centred around the Navy.... the navy will intercept anything that flys near them, but their key function will be to alert the Aerospace defence forces that an attack is underway.... shooting down lots of cruise missiles is no job for CIWS, just like it is not a primary job of TOR.


    The Su-35s and MiG-31s will be the first line of defence and coastal SAM batteries will be the next, but every target those cruise missiles are after or fly near will have SAMs to defend them too.

    Hopefully instead of wasting time trying to hit one or two cruise missiles those corvettes will be launching a few cruise missiles at the player that fired cruise missiles at Russia in the first place....

    A much more productive role for them.

    vMaybe the plateform is to small. I agree.

    The platform is not too small, your expectations are too large... when was the last time a corvette won a war?

    You didn't get it. I don't say its a weak ship, I just think that a anti air version deployed near the shores could a great job to stop cruose missile which are the first weapons used in a war and every country will have larger and larger stockes of them in the future.

    Aerospace defence works on the ground and their radars are limited by the environment.

    Not just Tor but also shtill. Yes it is their role.

    I didn't meant to stop using karakurt. Its a cheap corvette so you can have both versions. The karakurt with uksk can attack the ships that fired them but a line of defence of 20 anti air versions will enable you shot lot of missile.

    Mig 31 and su 35 won t stop a massive attack of 200 cruise missile by their own. It s just impossible. Aerospace def will also use tor and buk to destroy them but in an environment where the cruise missile have much more chances to go through...

    Who talk about wining a war with corvettes...

    Well you can start by giving it a Sonar then, so it can actually see the subs. But as it is it's packed to the gills already (same as the Buyan-M) - don't bother.

    These are missile boats. Leave them be.

    Russia does have multirole ships in this size range that are suited for ASW operations; the Project 22160 for example.. not to mention the larger 20380/20385 vessels.

    Well you can start by giving it a Sonar then, so it can actually see the subs. But as it is it's packed to the gills already (same as the Buyan-M) - don't bother.

    These are missile boats. Leave them be.

    Russia does have multirole ships in this size range that are suited for ASW operations; the Project 22160 for example.. not to mention the larger 20380/20385 vessels.

    Actually on 800t ship you can put all this stuff

    22160 has no ASW stuff yet. Id be happy if she has full corvette's equipment. ASW, ASchM, AAD maybe drone/light helo helipad?
