    Corvette Boiky Undergoes Sea Trials in Baltic

    The new Project 20380 corvette Boiky built by JSC Severnaya Verf shipyard for Baltic Fleet (BF) is passing sea trials in the fleet's test ranges. The ship's crew headed by Capt 2 Rank Sergei Lipsky and the trial team are testing serviceability of onboard systems at sea. In particular, they are checking powerplant, steering system, auxiliary mechanisms, communication and navigation facilities, and anchor gear. The ship is undergoing speed, maneuvering, and vibration tests.

    The trial team includes representatives of various shipyard departments and contracting organizations. Upon completion of sea trials, shipwrights will analyze results and finally outfit the ship.

    Shipyard's sea trials are one of mandatory stages closing construction process of any ship. They are held in order to test onboard systems at sea and verify whether practical performance conforms to design specifications, layouts, technical descriptions, and operation manuals.

    The trials will finish late in Dec 2012. The crew will begin the state acceptance trials early in 2013.

    Severnaya Verf shipyard splashed the second batch-produced Project 20380 corvette Boiky on Apr 15, 2011. The ship was laid down in July 2005. Corvette Stereguschiy being handed over to Baltic Fleet in 2007 is the lead ship in the series. The first batch-produced ship of this project, corvette Soobrazitelny was commissioned into BF on Oct 14, 2011.

    The corvette project was developed by Almaz Design Bureau. Such ship is used for littoral zone operations, engagement of enemy submarines and surface ships, and gun support of landing operations. Stealth technology was widely used during construction of the ships, as well as 21 patents and 14 new computer programs. Newest physical field reduction solutions were applied too. As a result, designers considerably reduced the ship's radar signature thanks to hull architecture and fire-resistant radar-absorbent fiberglasses applied in tophamper's design.

    Russian Navy to Receive Corvette Boiky by Year End

    Russian Navy will receive Project 20380 corvette Boiky by the end of 2012, reports press service of JSC Severnaya Verf shipyard referring to its director Alexander Ushakov.

    According to Ushakov, the yard's directors assumed a commitment to deliver corvette Boiky to the Navy by the end of 2012.

    The corvette has already passed the shipyard's sea trials; about 70 certificates were signed then.

    In the nearest time, JSC Arsenal will produce a 100-mm gun mount A190-01 for the corvette, and late in Nov or early in Dec the ship will move to Baltiysk acceptance base for the second phase of sea trials. Then will begin state acceptance trials. If weather permits to finish them by the year end, the ship's acceptance certificate would be signed.

    The second batch-produced Project 20380 corvette Boiky was put afloat at Severnaya Verf on Apr 15, 2011. Keel for the ship was laid down in July 2005.

    Lead ship of the series is corvette Stereguschiy that was handed over to Baltic Fleet in 2007. The next ship, Soobrazitelny, joined Baltic Fleet on Oct 14, 2011.

    The corvette project was developed by Almaz Design Bureau. Such ships are used for littoral zone operations, engagement of enemy submarines and surface ships, and gun support of landing operations. Stealth technology was widely used during construction of the ships, as well as 21 patents and 14 new computer programs. Newest physical field reduction solutions were applied too. As a result, designers considerably reduced the ship's radar signature thanks to hull architecture and fire-resistant radar-absorbent fiberglasses applied in tophamper's design.

    New Russian Corvette Passes Systems Trials

    MOSCOW, November 22 (RIA Novosti) - Russia's newest corvette, the Project 20380 Boiky class, has successfully completed main systems tests in its initial sea trials, fleet spokesman Captain Second Rank Vladimir Matveyev said on Thursday.

    "Our newest corvette, the Project 20380 Boiky class, built by Severny Verf for the Baltic Fleet, successfully completed first stage builder's sea trials in a training area in the Baltic," he said.

    The 2,100 ton displacement vessel was manned by a mixed crew of navy personnel and civilian workers for the trials, which began in early October.

    "The trials included testing of the power plant, steering, navigation and communications equipment, mooring gear, back-up systems and tests of the ship's maximum speed, maneuverability and vibration levels," Matveyev said.

    The ship will soon return to the shipyard to have its 100-mm gun installed, he added, after which it will sail to the port of Baltysk for second-stage trials.

    "Shipyard testing should be completed in December, after which the crew will put it through state acceptance trials," he said.

    Severny Verf is due to build six of the 20380 and 20385 classes for the Russian Navy by 2018, and six larger 22350 class frigates by 2020.

    The 20380 class, designed by the Almaz naval design bureau, are optimised for anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare and support for land operations. The class incorporates stealth technology, which has considerably reduced its radar and infra-red signatures.

    The 20380 class can be equipped with Kh-35 anti-ship missiles and 3M54 Klub cruise missiles, Kashtan anti-aircraft gun/missile systems, a main 100-mm gun, two 30-mm close-range air defense guns, and torpedo tubes, according to naval-technology.com. It also has a hangar and deck for operation of a Kamov Ka-27 anti-submarine warfare helicopter, and is fitted with a Vinyetka-EM towed-array sonar.

    Russian Stealth Corvette Remains Unarmed

    Russian Navy postponed commissioning of the stealth corvette Boiky for indefinite term due to failed delivery of 100-mm gun system A-190 Universal, reports Izvestiya referring to Russian Navy Main HQ.

    According to a source, Project 20380 corvette Boiky is passing shipyard's sea trials without gun. "That's not trials at all", complained the staff officer.

    Besides, gun mount A-190 produced by Arsenal design bureau is by no means as good as it is declared, said the Navy spokesman. According to him, naval mariners try not to use Universal gun mounts mounted on Russian corvettes.

    "Fire rate of the gun declared by the manufacturer as 80 rounds per minute has not been tested. If you fire at nominal mode, the gun will be stuck after third or four round. Either the case will skew or elevators will come loose. There are problems in loading system. New defects every time. So, we have to conduct only single-shot fire. The system was poorly designed and even worse manufactured", reports Izvestiya citing the officer.

    According to a representative of United Shipbuilding Corporation, gun mounts A-190 Universal also displayed bad performance on Indian frigates INS Talwar, INS Trishul, and INS Tabar built in Russia.

    The Arsenal design bureau shifts the blame to the project developer, i.e. the Burevestnik research institute. United Shipbuilding Corporation decided, however, to relegate production of A-190 back to the Burevestnik institute. A spokesman for the Arsenal bureau described that decision as a weird step as his company had managed to eliminate most of the gun's defects.

    Ship-based gun mount A-190 was developed early in 2000's on the basis of 76-mm gun AK-176. Its weight is about 15 tons; firing rate is up to 80 rounds per minute; destruction range is 21 km. The gun can be mounted on ships displacing more than 500 tons including frigates, corvettes and patrol craft.

    Built under stealth technology, corvette Boiky was laid down in 2005 being supposed to join Russian Navy in 2012.

    Izvestia.
    There are videos of the A-190 firing @ full capacity.
    This "source" sounds like he doesn't know wtf he is talking about.



    Though gun production has been problematically slow.
    Even worse for Gorshkov's gun.

    Well actually this naval gun is something interesting... it is the size and weight of a 76.2mm gun but with the range and shell weight of a 100mm gun in a stealthy turret... so yes... it is a complex item to put together.

    For all its problems you have to give them credit... it is a 100mm gun in a mount the size and weight of a mount for a 76.2mm gun, but with 100mm gun performance.

    Quite an achievement.

    Russia’s newest Baltic Fleet warship, the Project 20380 Boiky corvette,

    Post  Russian Patriot on Mon May 06, 2013 11:41 pm

    MOSCOW, May 6 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s newest Baltic Fleet warship, the Project 20380 Boiky corvette, will be handed over to the Navy on May 16, St. Petersburg's Severnaya Verf shipyard said on Monday.



    The Boiky has completed sea trials and undergone a series of final tests at the shipyard.



    The 20380 class, designed by the Almaz naval design bureau and built at Severnaya Verf, is optimized for antisubmarine and surface warfare and support for land operations. The class incorporates stealth technology, which has considerably reduced its radar and infrared signatures.



    On April 1, the Boiky was sprinkled with holy water in a Russian Orthodox Christian blessing ceremony. A priest blessed the corvette’s hull, weapons systems and superstructures, as well as the ship’s interior.



    The 20380 class can be equipped with Kh-35 anti-ship missiles and 3M-54 Klub cruise missiles, Kashtan anti-aircraft gun/missile systems, a main 100-mm gun and two 30-mm close-range air defense guns, as well as torpedo tubes, according to naval-technology.com. It also has a hangar and deck for operating a Kamov Ka-27 antisubmarine warfare helicopter, and is fitted with a Vinyetka-EM towed-array sonar.
