    Regarding the last picture, I am looking forward to a confirmed answer about the number of 9M96 missiles carried on the ship: Is it 16 missiles or 16 x 4 = 64 missiles ???

    I am more and more being convinced it is the greater figure.

    The Russians have traditionally strong on air defence, so I would think 64 SAMs would make it a well defended vessel, but 16 would be a bit weak...

    Batter armed than first 20380 but still week.

    I have this link where 4x9M96E (40km version) is confirmed by author and in that

    sense 64 40km range missiles would be good enough by my opinion but I dont get it

    If it is possible to place 4x9M96 in one launcher why not lengthier and longer

    ranged version 9M96E2 with 120km range except if Redut VLS is not able to

    support its length cozz 9M96E and 9M96E2 have the same diameter.

    Maybe Steregushy class ships don't have deep enough space to place longer 120 km range 9M96E2 missiles, but enough for 40 km range 9M96E missiles. Gorshkov is larger ship and could have enough deep space to place 120 km range 9M96E2 missiles. It also have different radar complex, which could enable work of 120 km range missiles. We will see what capabilities and armament will Gorshkov have, when it will be finished.

    The other question is will the pre 20385 ships even be able to guide a missile that far. Furke is not the most impressive set, it is designed for smaller ships after all, typically ships of that size do not have 120+ km range SAMs. If the Furke specs that are floating around online are any indication, it would not be even close to utilize the 120km range of the bigge missile. Hopefully the unified mast of the 20385 fixes this.

    Steregushy class

    Probably a combination of reduced weight and radar limitation with the Furke would make the 40km missiles the best choice for this sort of vessel.

    In fact, when Morfei is ready perhaps 40 x 40km range missiles and 24 x 9M100 short range IIR guided missiles in a SEA RAM like role.

    The 9M100 should be a much smaller and more compact weapon so it might be possible to use two layers of 4-6 missiles per tube, so the weapon load could be 40 x 40km range missiles and 48-72 short range missiles. That would give it the equivalent of an SA-N-7 system with the 40 x 40km range missiles and 1.5-2.5 Kashtans, though with shorter range short range missiles, they will be lock on after launch and fire and forget missiles.

    I rather suspect that in time they will develop a small phased array radar for smaller vessels to replace Furke, and at the end of the day it is just a corvette!

    Corvette Gromky Laid Down at Amur Shipyard to Join Pacific Fleet in 2015

    Keel of corvette Gromky for Pacific Fleet (PF) was laid down at JSC Amur Shipyard which is the largest shipbuilding plant at the Russia's Far East.

    The ceremony took place at the ship's first section welded in mid-Feb and was attended by PF Acting Commander RADM Sergei Avakiants, Governor of Khabarovsk Krai Vyacheslav Shport, representatives of shipbuilding industry and community of Komsomolsk-on-Amur.

    When the meeting was over, team of arc welders headed by Eduard Bytov attached the ship's keel-laying plaque to the first section.

    According to the shipyard's deputy director Viktor Myshkin, that is the second corvette in the series laid down at JSC Amur Shipyard.

    "We plan to deliver the corvette in 2015. Her elder sister – corvette Sovershenny – will be completed and join Pacific Fleet in 2013", Myshkin said.

    Project 20380 corvettes are designed for littoral sea warfare, e.g. countering enemy surface ships, providing gunfire support to landing operations, etc. Constructively, their hulls are built under advanced technology. For the first time in Russian Navy, ships of such size will have stern hangar with heliport. Basic weapon is Uragan antiship missile system.

    Ships of this kind will strengthen Pacific Fleet at Primorsky Krai and Kamchatka, said RADM Sergei Avakiants at the keel-laying ceremony.

    "We also expect new-generation seagoing ships capable to be deployed worldwide", emphasized Avakiants.

    Russia Floats Out New Corvette

    St. Petersburg's Severnaya Verf shipyard floated out a new stealth corvette for the Russian Navy at an official ceremony on Wednesday.

    The Stoyky is the fourth Project 20380 or Steregushchy class corvette designed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau. The ship is expected to join Russia’s Baltic Fleet in November 2013 after a series of sea trials.

    The first Project 20380 corvette, the Steregushchy, was put into service with the Baltic Fleet in October 2008 and the second, the Soobrazitelny, joined the Russian Navy in October 2011.

    The third ship of the same series, the Boyky, is undergoing sea trials to be commissioned in November 2012.

    The Steregushchy class corvette is capable of engaging enemy surface ships, submarines and aircraft, and providing naval gunfire support for beach landings. Advanced stealth technology is used to reduce the ship's radar, acoustic, infrared, magnetic and visual signatures.

    Russia plans to have up to 30 vessels of this class to ensure the protection of its coastal waters, as well as its oil and gas transportation routes, especially in the Black and the Baltic seas.

    Each corvette has a displacement of 2,000 metric tons, maximum speed of 27 knots, and a crew of 100.

    The ship's armament includes Kh-35 (SS-N-25 Switchblade) anti-ship cruise missiles, a 100-mm gun, a variety of air-defense and anti-submarine systems, and a Ka-27 Helix ASW helicopter.

    Corvette Soobrazitelny Leaves DANEX Exercise Due to Fire Incident

    Corvette Soobrazitelny happened to be motionless in the western part of the Baltic Sea due to fire in the ship's engine room.

    According to information available to Central Navy Portal, although the crew managed to extinguish the fire, as a result of firefighting activities some equipment was flooded by water and went out of service. No one suffered in the accident.

    Reportedly, probable cause of the fire was either short circuit in electric wiring or the crew's fault. Seat of fire was in the chimney. It took personnel more than one hour to neutralize the fire.

    According to vesti.ru, director of Danish working group at the DANEX-NOCO 2012 joint naval exercise expressed regret over the corvette Soobrazitelny would not continue participation in the exercise started on Monday.

    Soobrazitelny was built by JSC Severnaya Verf shipyard. The ship was laid down on May 20, 2003 and launched on March 31, 2010. Headed by commanding officer Capt 2 Rank Alexander Telepov, the ship's crew settled on board early in 2011. State trials began on July 27, 2011. The ship was delivered to the Navy on Oct 14, 2011. Naval ensign was triumphantly hoisted on the same day, the ship was commissioned into Baltic Fleet and stationed in Baltiysk Naval Base.

    On the Russian Navy Day (July 29, 2012), corvette Soobrazitelny obtained the honorable Guards title and a special Guards naval ensign.

    Soobrazitelny is the second Project 20380 corvette, a multipurpose 2-nd rank littoral zone warship. Her predecessor, corvette Stereguschiy is presently in service. Further ship of this series will have names of Boiky, Stoiky, and Provorny.

    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.

    Severnaya Verf Shipyard Continues Building Corvettes

    Batch production of corvettes for Russian defense ministry will be continued at the Severnaya Verf shipyard, said the company's director Alexander Ushakov in the interview at the yard's centennial ceremony.

    "Works on corvette Stoiky, the last ship in the first series, are going on in accordance with schedule, we plan to complete the ship by the end of the next year", Ushakov said. Corvette Boiky has already passed first phase of state acceptance trials. The shipyard was tasked to sign acceptance certificate and deliver the corvette to the Navy in the current year.

    "Our shipyard has export prospects as well. Currently, we're actively promoting export variant of Project 20382 Tiger corvette. Algerian experts are negotiating with Rosoboronexport on a contract with the view to built such ships for them", said director of Severnaya Verf.

    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.
