    If Moskva is going to be decomissioned, what will be the flag ship of BSF? Maybe one Udaloy destroyer...or one brand new Gorshkov?! dunno

    It is a shame as she is one of the few ships in modern times to engage in combat but overdue, she is not in a good state.

    Never in service. In 1991 she was 95% complete. Now not more than a rusty hulk!

    The question of repairing the missile cruiser "Moscow"

    According to the web resource Mil.Press FlotProm, the Russian Navy does not yet have the means to modernize the missile cruiser of the project 1164 "Moscow". At the same time, the ship will be returned to the 13th shipyard. About this Mil.Press FlotProm reported two informed sources in the industry.

    Not sure that especially counters the earlier question of 'whether its worth it', I'd suggest that question is in discussion higher up than the sources of this article -> only currently released maintenance funds & not started design work/planning/contract on Upgrade.

    Also, for the record Ustinov has transited to St Petersburg for Navy parade.

    Without Moskva, the BSF becomes pretty much a flotilla. Neutral

    Not sure why the BSF would require a ~12kT cruiser armed with carrier-killer missiles. Frigates and subs and missile boats are what the BSF needs, and it has those, with more coming.

    The BSF region is ideal for staging for a Mediterranean taskforce, but with Syria winding down (from a Russian naval aspect) her extended "holiday" in the yards isn't too much of a deal.  Fingers crossed they can find the cash to modernise her as the 3 Slava sisters are formidable ships and provide huge punch to any surface fleet they join.  Vulkans may be "old"-ish but they are one of the few weapons that can kill a CVN with a single hit.

    Deterrence.
    Having the intimidating prospect of a big fuckoff cruiser with a bunch of bigass supersonic anti-ship missiles & capable if old S-300 wreck your day has to be a moderating factor for US DDG captains when they are ordered into the Black Sea & even CVBGs in East Med in a way that Buyan-M & 11356 really can't do.

    On the other hand BSF now has the highest concentration of modern ships in Russian Navy & can arguably best cope with the lack of said big fuckoff cruiser... dunno

    Deterrence comes not just from surface and submarine forces, but from Tu-22M3 with heavy AShMs, or Bastion land-launched Onyx, or MiG-31F with hypersonic Daggers....  The Black Sea is not an ocean, and any US vessel in that lake will find itself tracked and targeted by a veritable fuck-ton of nasty pointy speedy ordnance which couldn't care less about the Seppos over-inflated and undeserved opinions of themselves. attack

    MiG-31K. All the rest is spot on. The Black Sea is a large lake. But maybe they should store the ship for two or three years until they found the money for a deep modernisation.

    If the ship is too worn out and there fore beyond reasonable repair in the terms of cost and the amount of service life it will have after the potential repair than that's it, its done.

    But if the problem is just about finding the money, then my perspective is the following:

    The BSF might not need the Moskva at the moment but not repairing and upgrading the ship like they did with the Marshal Ustinov is just stupid, the ship is already there, you don't need to build it, its big, has plenty of space for new stuff, new weapons and systems.

    No matter what the cost of the work would be, its still far less, as far as I can tell and know, then making new ships that will do the same function and have the same firepower. Plus, given the current trend, Russia is just building small/large corvettes and that's it, how many ships of this kind would it take to supplement a ship like Moskva.

    Buyan-M and Karakuts have great anti ship capability FOR THEIR SIZE but no long/medium range air defense able to track large number of targets at one time. A task force of Karakuts with Pantsir-M can provide god air defense for a convoy but you need 4 of them plus 1/2 ships with dedicated ASubW capabilities and a potential medium AD system (Adm. Grigorovic for instance).

    The only thing that remains is the Gorskov, lets not get into the obvious problem of building, but focus on the potential firepower of the ship as it is. Gorskov is great, but it's a compromise that its necessary to make for a ship of that size, it can potentially have the same number of anti ship missile as the Moskva, but then, no land attack capability, it has only half of the long range AD missiles compared to Moskva and can only carry far less ASubW on board. Moskva has 2 RBU-6000, plus, 10 torpedo tubes that can launch a whole range of conventional and rocket propelled torpedoes.

    Any, of the 2 main Russian fleets will be seriously strengthen with a ship like this.

    Lets take the case of the Northern fleet in a 2-3 years future. With 2 Slava class cruisers an upgraded Kirov class, 4 Udaloys (?????), 3 Gorskovs (hopefully), Kuznetsov aircraft carrier and potentiality 2 large corvetts of the 2038.6 type (derziki), they can form 3 battle groups around the 2 Slavas and one around Kuznetsov and And. Nakhimov.

    Composition:

    BG 1:
    Marshal Ustinov + 2 Udaloy 1 + Gorskov class (Adm. Groskov) + 1 Attack submarine (which ever is the most ready)

    BG 2:
    Moskva + 2 Udaloy 1 + Gorskov class (Adm. Kastnov) + 1 Attack submarine (which ever is the most ready)

    BG 3:
    Kuznetsov (will have god AD protection of its own) +  And. Nakhimov + 1 Udaloy 2 (if they repair the Udaloy 2 ????)  + 1 Gorskov class + 1 Attack submarine (which ever is the most ready)


    Its not ideal, I know, but there is potential at least.

    The key to all this is how will the repair and modernization program unfold for the Udaloy class, how many Gorskov class ship will they have by the year 2020/21 (will the third one be in finishing stages????), And of course how, long will the process of repairing and upgrading Moskva take, now that they have gone trough that process with Marshal Ustinov.

    Two Gorshkov frigates (8+8 AShM) would easily fill in for one Slava-class (16 AShM)

    If it's old (1976) and worn out then no point investing further into it. It had it's day in the sun (way more than most ships), time for retirement now.

    EDIT: actually it's 16 AShM per one Gorshkov frigate so even one would get the job done

    Reading between the lines, its a good bet that this is what the navy will do.  Either a modest repair to kick the can down the road, or mothball (ie place in "reserve") awaiting budget allocations. I don't see they will scrap her anytime soon, especially since 2x Kirovs and 2x Akula SSBNs have been held in reserve now for decades.

    The main issue is what condition is she in? If worn out, she's toast.

    Moskva i think is too heavy ship for BSF. All Slavas should be in Northern and Pacific Fleets as Kirovs

    For sure but I think that still isn't gonna have the same mental impact as knowing there's a bigger badder ship out there.

    The BSF can cope in the northern part of the Black Sea, sure, without the cruiser. But it will no longer keep the entirety of the sea in check and will loose a big expeditionary tool, this is a gap that three small improved Krivaks cannot and will not cover.

    True, but i wouldn't place the Gorshkovs in the BSF, it makes sense to send the older ships to the Baltic and the Black sea, while newer platforms take there place in the other fleets, with the exception of Corvettes.

    IMO. they should upgrade the Slavas with the Zircon or if possible Kinzal and the AD with navalised S-400, and you got one terrifying ship.

    It was built in 76 and then spent​ 20 years or more without maintenance before getting back in use

    You can't do anything with it anymore other than giving it he last overhaul before retirement

    Hell, they were about to cut it for scrap once already before they changed their mind

    Considering the ongoing sh%tshow with the building of new ships, this seems like the better compromise right now.
    And aren't they already upgrading some older ships, Udaloy, Sovremennyy and Kirov?

    They are upgrading Kirovs and Udalois but those are significantly newer than Moskva, Sovremenyy are being converted to museums

    And while I'm not biggest fan of Russian naval shipbuilding even I think that they should go with new ship instead of upgrading something this old, upgrading Ustinov took quite a while

    It's like painting and fitting Nissan stickers on a old Datsun and switching from 8 track to cassette deck.
    It sure is an improvement.

    That's odd, there is mention of ongoing modernization of the Burnyy.

    "In 2012 the cruiser was laid up for repairs and upgrades at the Zvyozdochka Shipyard. The ship rejoined the navy in 2016"
    It took 4 years to modernize, way faster, then the G's ~12 years?
    Taking things into account as well as the Nakhimov, in 10/12 years Russia could have 2 very well armed Cruisers.
