    What did they put in the place of the removed gun on the Udaloy II ? I can't found any information on that.
    When you remove a gun you have a lot of place to put others system but It seems they didn't add anything more than switching missiles from Silex to Moskits and Ak to kashtans.

    They replaced the two 1x100mm turrets with a single 2x130mm turret, which is a significant firepower upgrade. I expect the internals were simply rearranged for 130mm ammo magazine?

    The suns location at any time is able to be calculated very accurately, so if you know the position of an enemy ship it would be fairly easy to launch such a missile at them and conceal the IR signature of the missile with the rising sun.

    Most ships don't sail around with all radars blasing as it reveals their position for thousands of kms, so an IR guided missile coming in from the sun would be a threat even today.

    Its primary role however is anti sub and in that role it is as effective as the torpedo that it carries... which I would suspect has been improved over time.

    To answer your question however the replacement is the UKSK vertical launch system that can carry land attack cruise missiles, anti ship missiles and anti sub missiles that deliver torpedoes.

    The Klub system includes two ASW weapons that consist of rockets that deliver Torpedoes to the target area. One is for surface launch from Ships and the other is for launch from submerged submarines. Both are ballistic rockets that fly at mach 2.5 to the target area that can be 40-50km from the launch vessel.

    The UKSK system has 8 tubes and can be fitted with ASW missiles as described above or anti ship missiles like the subsonic or supersonic Klub, or the anti ship supersonic Oniks/Yakhont/Brahmos, or the subsonic land attack Klub.

    For a surface ship the (domestic non export) ranges are 40km for the ASW, 2,500km and 1,500km for subsonic and supersonic anti ship respectively, 500-700km estimate for Oniks, 280-300km for export only Yakhont and Brahmos, and 2,500km for subsonic land attack Klub. The latter is sometimes called Kalibre.


    Upgraded ships like the Kirov class vessels will get UKSK launchers.

    For ships like late model Krivak the UKSK is likely along with vertical launch Shtil.

    Hopefully Shtil will eventually be integrated to Redut...

    How was the SSN-14 Silex by 1980s standard ?
    I mean as an ASuW weapon ? I know that it was greatly outranged by Harpoon but can the Rastrub still be useful in situations where the geographical features like fiords, islands, gulfs prevent the full utilization of Harpoons range of its opponents?
    Guess what I'm trying to ask is if there is lets say a KAra class ship vs a Harpoon equipped destroyer , will the Kara stand any chance with SSN-14 ? and if so what tactics it can use to exploit its advantages and minimize its opponents advantages

    You are comparing an anti sub weapon with secondary anti ship capabilities with a dedicated anti ship missile.

    Harpoon was smaller and much more compact but never carried in very large numbers by any one vessel.

    Its active radar homing would alert the target it was being attacked and most Soviet vessels of the time had plenty of 30mm gatlings to deal with low flying subsonic missiles given enough warning.

    The SS-N-14 on the other hand has IR guidance and would give little to no warning of the impending attack.

    I would suspect a tactic that could be used would be to land the torpedo in the water close to the enemy ship and attack it with that, but I suspect the whole missile with an onboard warhead plus the entire weight and warhead of the torpedo would have made a hit by the Soviet missile much more effective than a hit by Harpoon.

    smaller platform like a corvette without CIWS and /or SAM attacked by a SSN-14 silex missile then maybe it will be vulnerable ? given lack of modern defences
    THe bigger soviet ASW ships which carried SSN-14 like Kara , Kresta II and Udaloy are well equipped with SAM and Gatling guns so I think if given appropriate warning like you said ( esp if harpoon is launched at longer ranges) they may have a chance of survival

    Except with modern radar and IR sensors even a system like Verba could be used effectively against sea skimming missiles... not to mention medium calibre guns with guided shells and gatlings.

    Some info and recent news on udaloy ships modernization. Interesting that "Marshal Shaposhnikov" will get antiship missiles Uran. So i wonder if it will replace Metel Anti-Ship Complex or the ship will have both systems

    Large anti-submarine ship "Marshal Shaposhnikov" will get missile system "Uran"

    Repair work on the technical condition of a large anti-submarine ship of the Pacific Fleet "Marshal Shaposhnikov", Project 1155 (serial number 114), to the extension of maintenance periods and implementation of individual modernization works carried out by JSC "Center of Ship Repair" Dalzavod "(CSD) in Vladivostok, enter into an active phase .

    On the one hand, finally, almost a year after the conclusion of the state contract (1 April 2015), on the BOD "Marshal Shaposhnikov" started dock repair - March 30, 2016 at the Maritime Forum Air Base were photos of BOD supplied in dry dock Dalzavod.

    In addition, the IPC on the procurement site published information about the number of contracts with subcontractors state contract for ship repair.

    For more in July 31, 2015 signed a contract with JSC "Machine-Building Design Bureau", included in the JSC "Tactical Missiles Corporation". Subject of the contract - supply of two sets of products 3C-24 value of 47 million rubles. According to the known data 3C-24 (aka CT-184) - This launcher ship missile complex 3K24 "Uran" with anti-ship missiles Kh-35 (3M24). manufacturing plant life is determined in 18 months. Earlier plans to install "Uran" on the BOD Project 1155 have been reported.

    On May 28th, 2015 an agreement was signed with OAO Vladivostok "Emerald" (part of the JSC "Concern" Morinformsystem-Agat") for the supply of goods MR-123-02 / 3. Universal naval artillery fire control system MR-123-02 / 3 "Bagheera" is designed for fire control naval flak 30-100 mm caliber and unguided jet weapon 122, 140 mm for air targets, including anti-ship and anti-radar missiles, ship self-defense when by means of air attack, on marine and coastal targets to provide fire support for landing and destruction of coastal defense objects in depth in the application of active and passive radar and optical-electronic interference. The composition of the JMA "MR-123-02 / 3" in the full version includes radar and optical-electronic channels. Price MSA - 165.300.000 rubles, delivery time - until the end of 2016.

    On December 23, 2015 signed a contract with the St. Petersburg JSC "BCP" RIO "for the supply of automated complex of the P-779-28 and the complex communication system of the Global Maritime Distress GMDSS. The cost of the agreement - 422.786.000 rubles, the term of the contract execution - 12 months.

    In addition to the previously signed contracts with JSC "NPP" Salute "for the supply of radar detection of total MP-710 and 5P-30N2 worth over 980 million rubles. (About them - link), on February 2nd 2016 signed another contract for the supply of 5P-30P radar data processing system. The price of the contract - 122 million rubles, the period of validity - until the end of 2016.

    In addition, in 2015 an agreement was signed with JSC "Taganrog Scientific Research Institute of Communications" for the delivery of TC-25-2 with a price of 280.6 million rubles and the execution period of 16 months. According to Concern "Radio-electronic technology", which includes TNIIS, ship jamming complex TK-25 is designed to provide electronic protection of the object from a radio-controlled weapons airborne and shipborne through the creation of active interference with a spectral width of 64 to 2000 MHz, and pulse misleading and simulation of interference with the use of copies of the signal. The complex is able to simultaneously analyze up to 256 targets.

    JSC "Northern Design Bureau" is conducted:

    - Development of design documentation for the installation of replacement systems B and TC, certain "Decision on the organization of works on repair of technical BOD Head of Project 1155. №114 with the implementation of individual modernization works in accordance with the technical specifications of MP-1476 from 07.02.2015, the »№ 15-2 / 2150 of 27 April 2015,

    Umm...Interesting.

    and what about Marshal Valisievsky and Admiral Spiridinov, are there any chances they return to service?

    First of all please lets have a dedicated/separate threads for Pr.956 Sovrermenny and Pr.1155/11551 Udaloy-I/II class destroyers.


    Carrying forward the issue we saw raised on other naval topics w.r.t to the mess that Russian Navy has found itself in due to the non-availability of a Russian production unit for naval gas turbines.

    The result of distributing the production of nuclear and conventional power plants between Russia and Ukraine is for all of us to see with Russian Navy starved of conventional propulsion units. Since N-propulsion represented the cream of the system, Soviet Russia mainly bothered about developing these units and associated systems inside Russia leaving the conventional units mainly to Soviet Ukraine.

    From whats been talked about in other naval threads, the first of the Russian gas turbines for the frigates and destroyers will only arrive post 2020 which is way too late for a navy that kept its hope on arresting the capability decline on its 6 x 11356 and 6 x 22350 frigates.
    And what if even the projected 2018-2020 target for gas turbines gets delayed? Doesn't Russian navy want any frigates or destroyers?



    In this scenario, my humble opinion is to revisit the Pr.956 destroyers with the required modification (which anyway wont be time consuming and can run in parallel to procurement & hull laying) and order atleast 6 units (preferably 12) which can start entering service 5 years from now.

    Pr.956 destroyers, thankfully, have been using steam propulsion with KVG-3 boilers and the supply chain mainly resides within Russia. Pr.11435 Kuznetsov also uses KVG-3 boilers and to top it all, a completely new variant (KVG-3D) using diesel as fuel was developed for INS Vikramaditya. Its said the 11435 will be changing over to KVG-3D during its modernization, a logical move, and so does a need for the same when modernizing the 956s. The steam turbines are good and its been working fine and shown its worth for the Indian VKD whose overhauled steam turbines worked flawlessly propelling it after more than a decade of laying idle.

    So my personal opinion is to order at least 6 x 956
    since the propulsion is the main area which have withheld the Russian navy's frigates, the propulsion unit have been given prominence.

    Propulsion
    4 x KVG-3D boilers
    2 x Steam turbines

    Armament (offensive)
    1 x A-192
    8 x 3M80 Moskit or 12 x Oniks/3M55 (considering we are not changing the structure ground up)
    8 x UKSK

    Armament (self-defence)
    36-48 medium-long-range AD missile. (fore deck)
    36-48 medium-long-range AD missile (stern/amidship, after shifting the helipad and hanger further stern)
    2 x Palma

    ^^ just few items listed...
    Since we are talking about new ones, I'd prefer the 22350 mast/system being accommodated atop the bridge.

    But the important point is will we just make it in circles debating the need fort such a solution and if the Russian Govt/Navy will move forward with such a solution to enhance its fighting force rather than wasting time. if they can order 11356 at a very late stage to arrest the decline in fighting force, they can very well (& need to!!!) order a pr.956 solution.



    As a reminder, some data for the earlier 956 deal with China.

    Pr.956EM deal with China.
    In 2002, the PRC signed a contract with Russia to purchase an additional two improved Project 956EM destroyers worth US$1.4 billion. The first hull, Taizhou 138, was launched in April 2004 and delivered on 28 December 2005[/b]. The second hull, Ningbo (139) was launched in July 2004 and delivered in September 2006[/b].

    Pr.956 propulsion
    Main propulsion include four KVG-3 high-pressure steam boilers, 50,000hp TV-12-4 steam turbines, driving two fixed pitch propellers. Electric power is supplied by two 1,000kW steam turbo-generators and four 600kW diesel generators. The ship has a maximum speed of 32 knots and an economic speed of 18 knots.

    "Russia’s Defense Ministry will spend over 75 million rubles ($1.2 million) on upgrading and repairing sonars of the Russian Navy Project 1155 large anti-submarine warfare (ASW) destroyers, and small ASW craft, according to the information posted on the state procurement website. According to the website, the Defense Ministry is planning to repair, upgrade and extend the service life of sonar, hydro-physical and other systems of Russian Navy surface ships.

    According to the website, the MGK-355 Polinom long-range sonar of the Northern Fleet’s large anti-submarine warfare ship Severomorsk will be upgraded.

    Work will be conducted onboard the Pacific Fleet’s ships Admiral Vinogradov and Admiral Panteleyev to restore the technical readiness of their sonar and hydro-physical systems.

    The MGK-335MS sonars and MG-339T Shelon-T dipping sonars of Project 1124, 1124M and 1331M small anti-submarine warfare ships in service with Russia’s Pacific, Black Sea and Baltic Fleets will be also repaired."
