    @ Papadragon,

    Hey, take it easy.
    I did not mean to offend you. Sorry if I did. In my books, you are one of the good guys here.

    On the other hand, you are yourself being too harsh on this class of ships.

    First of all, they have not been in production for 2 decades.
    The lead ship (Steregushy) was laid down in 2001 and commissioned in 2007.
    4 are already built and in service. 8 more are in construction.
    The latest one (Rezky) was laid down earlier this month. So, if they are still ordering them, they must be satisfied with them.

    What makes you say they are due for replacement?
    What makes you think they are obsolete already?
    What makes you say they need upgrades?

    These relatively modest sized ships (2000T) come with the latest anti-air system (Redut) and the latest antisubmarine system (Paket).
    They also carry a full-sized helicopter, large caliber modern gun, variable depth sonar, modern radars that we know very little about etc.etc.
    So, what is exactly obsolete about them?

    With so much cutting edge equipment (The equipment level is similar to a larger frigate), it is natural that they end up being a bit expensive. No wonder.

    The relatively slow (by western standards) construction speed is not the ships fault. Blame it on the MoD not financing the projects quick enough and on the shipyard(s) slowness or maybe the equipment suppliers being tardy.

    @ Wilhelm,

    That photo you posted is at least 2 months old.

    Thanks. I assume then that it is probably a little further along then?
    Any newer pics?
    Also, has there been any release of a date on when they anticipate it will start trials?

    No newer picture since then.
    We don't know how much work has progressed since then.

    First decent footage of Steregushi class corvette in quite a while, even some interiors too.



    Hopefully with engine issue now finally solved they can fully switch to Gremashi class or even something newer (there was proposal for Tiger class) so RU Navy can finally get some mass produced stuff and put the whole corvette issue to bed.

    Looks pretty far short of the completion state that other ships have been at for demagnetisation Neutral
    Pretty unusual to do it tied up to a dock with all sorts of random chunks of steel still onboard/right next to it...

    One of the 20380s Soobrazitelnyy tested 9M96 vs surface target


    Most AA missiles seem to have secondary anti-surface ability but pretty rare to see it used.
    Fair bit of it going round lately, particularly US made a big hoo-hah about testing SM-6es, even our local mini-navy shot a couple of old Sea Sparrows at a target ship at RIMPAC.

    It's supposedly the Kh-35 fired from one shot down with 9M96 from the other.

    It does... the anti ship versions of Klub.

    Stealth would be pointless for Uran and the upgraded Uran as they are active radar homing...

    A better alternative for stealth is speed because most modern ships would have a good chance of detecting an incoming missile stealthy or not due to IR sensors and EO systems.

    The solution of speed means no time to react effectively.

    again this, you always same, going offtopic picking some sideline point- and driving with that, instead of adressing real question.- e.g. stealth subsonic antiship missile.

    could kh-ushke from pak-fa programe be used....?

    Me going off topic.. you are the one complaining about lack of stealth anti ship missiles for Russian corvettes.

    Uran is the bargain basement missile... for upgrades and for ships that don't need anything better.

    There is nothing wrong with the missile... it actually has better performance than the exocet or harpoon which would be the closest western equivalents.

    When operating in a small enclosed area with the enemy in a known position and expecting to be fired upon then a single uran missile is not going to be a devastating weapon... nor is harpoon or exocet or anything else really.

    Ships don't operate with their radars blasing away all the time scanning for threats... that gives away their position and gives up the element of surprise... when they don't have their radars on the Uran will get much closer before it is detected and when more than one is fired its chance of success will be much greater.

    could kh-ushke from pak-fa programe be used....?

    If you mean the latest version of the AS-11 it could only be used if the target is using its radar and the obvious problem there is that it would likely take out the targets radar but not sink the ship...

    For most targets a Uran is fine... for better protected targets several Uran would probably still do the job. For most modern targets bigger than a corvette you would need Yakhont or the supersonic Klub or Zircon/Brahmos II.

    Stealthy subsonic will be detected no matter how radar invisible it is... even old missiles are stealthy in that they don't emit radar signals so a target not scanning... which will be all the ones that don't want to be detected at long range and saturation attacked... wont see it till it is visual on EO or Thermal optics... for subsonic targets that gives little time... for supersonic targets next to no time at all.

    thats true but some nato countries do have very stealth subsonic cruise antiship missiles, which usa or any other nato country could get very fast, and besides russia should lead not play catchup most of time.
    i was thinking going with that kh-ushke missile with passive homing and IIR combined warhead.... that would enable totaly passive closure to target using its emisions and with IIR target the ship ,with stealth it would be very hard to intercept missile, plus it has simmilar weight and range characteristics to Uran.

    My understanding is that that is still an ARM but with backup guidance options...

    A large radar generates a lot of heat that is rather hard to hide.

    For instance an AWACS aircraft could be targeted based on its radar emissions, but if shut down when the incoming missile is detected then the missile would still detect the heat signature of the target and home in on the turned off radar system.

    The same would apply to ground based radar... I would suspect with a naval vessel the IR signature of the vessel against the water at a different temperature would allow engagement but again I suspect the engagement of the radar would result in trivial/ie not terminal damage as the radar arrays would be hit but the hull would not likely be penetrated.

    Of course taking out the main radar array would leave the vessel vulnerable to attack from more conventional missiles.

    Did Russia buy that version? I was under the impression that they did not.

    Have heard all sorts of rumours... mostly from western sources about them not working. If they want them their new vessels all have UKSK launchers which are compatible with Onyx, Zircon, Calibr... which is the long range land attack version of Klub, and also the rocket powered torpedo delivering Klub model.. I don't see why they would not buy the anti ship subsonic and anti ship supersonic models of Klub too... there is talk of a supersonic anti ship missile in Russian service with a range of 1,500km... sounds like supersonic Klub to me. the whole purpose of a subsonic cruising stage and a supersonic terminal stage is maximum range and max effect in the terminal phase... it ticks all the boxes.

    9M96 uplinking question

    Post  r3mu511 on Mon Dec 05, 2016 6:00 am

    I was wondering if anyone knew what equipment was providing the midcourse guidance update uplinks to the 9M96 missile from the corvette?

    on the Gorshkov-class frigate the Poliment 5P-20K radar provides this midcourse uplinking, while on the land-based S-350 Vityaz the 50N6 radar does this uplinking, similarly for S-300/-400 systems the Tombstone/Gravestone will perform the uplinks...

    but what equipment is performing the midcourse uplinks for the 9M96 on the Steregushchy corvette?

    or are they not using midcourse update uplinks and instead launching the 9M96 with just it's initial, pre-launch ARH seeker INS activation point and once launched no further seeker activation point updates are done?

    That's apparently the big issue.
    Supposedly the Puma radar may be able to do it but definitely not optimal.

    ^thanks, would you happen to have a url/link to a reference on the use of the 5P-10E radar to perform the midcourse uplinking to the 9M96?

    per the manufacturer's website (concern-agat.ru / en / production / artillery-systems-fire-control-systems / 5p-10e-radar-control-system), this FCR has a tracking range of around 60 km which would mean it would only be useful with the 40 km range variant of the 9M96, so does this then mean the Steregushchy does not use the 120 km missile variant?

    Sorry, I don't think I'd be able to find it again (wish I'd kept the URL) but mentioned the article in previous post http://www.russiadefence.net/t47p300-project-2038-0-steregushchy-corvette#172731, as I said there it could be a case of Lost in Translation or outright wrong since it referenced the IR & unspotted 9M100 -> handful of salt.
    But as far as I understand it's either that or just initial inertial with no updates scratch
