    Could be.

    There is also a letter out there I think something to do with no longer available Ukraine stuff? http://bmpd.livejournal.com/2131185.html (image of Russian text so can't Google/Yandex translate)

    You can't compare the Russian Navy to Maidan's one-frigate flotilla.
    Pity these guys get to keep Nikolaev shipyard and related facilities.

    I'd always assumed it wasn't finished due to being far from complete, not much more than an empty hull but it looks like it was actually pretty close to finished & I can understand why Russia was looking at buying it to complete for a while, a shame.

    This was going into repair (via Balancer forum)

    Main external difference is the Boletus http://smp-salyut.ru/?p=272 & Fregat http://smp-salyut.ru/?p=311 radars. (links in Russian)
    There is new EW gear too.
    Big question if they upgraded the S-300/how much &/or if they put Calibr launchers in the Granit tubes. Apparently not though which I think is a huge lost opportunity No could have been a 48* Calibr/Onyx salvo.

    Well, if they are replacing the Granit launchers in Oscar class SSGNs with three tubes of Onyx or Kalibr, then replacing the Vulkan launchers with Onyx/Kalibr tubes should not have been impossible... though Vulkan is angled heavily... much more so than Granit.

    It's not a problem for Onix, Russian modified Nanushka class and some Indian destroyer use them this way. But I don't think it's the case for Kalibr. Maybe the submarine lunch version could as it can be lunched by torpedo tubes but surface version are design to be lunch by VLS.

    They did have a test rack for the Nanuchka boats, but we really don't know the results as to how that actually performed in those tests.

    An angled launch should not be that much of an issue...

    Nope.

    That's a big mistake, but it seems right now it's more important to have seaworthy, operational ships out there, rather than ideal capability on them.

    Apparently yes just electronics & radars.
    I guess maybe they will do a round2 with missile upgrades after the others get their upgrade?

    Current weapon setup is hardly lightweight.

    Granit is still a monster and they probably wanted to keep nuclear option readily available. S-300 and anti-sub setup are still going strong as well.

    And this way they completed overhaul in decent time which probably factored into decision to go with this approach.

    Good call I say.
