    PREVIEW OF CHANGES IN THE COMBAT FLEET OF THE RUSSIAN NAVY 2018-2025

    As explained before, Russia has been doing a process of reduction of the fleet since the end of the Soviet Union. Russia has been selecting the best mix of ships to keep from the fleet of the Soviet Union while decommissioning the less modern and less useful ships. For it, Russia decommissioned a good amount of young ships, something that only makes sense in a process of reduction of the fleet (otherwise is a strong source of money loses).

    Taking into account the data of the last years, the process of reduction of the combat fleet is about to be finished. Still there is some early decommission, but very few. In overall terms it seems that Russia is begining the next stage for its fleet, advancing not more in the reduction of the fleet.

    2016 Decommissions: Total = 6

    1 Project 667BDR Nuclear Submarine (commissioned 1979)
    1 Project 641B Conventional Submarine (commissioned 1982)
    1 Project 877 Conventional Submarine (commissioned 1984)
    1 Project 956 Destroyer (commissioned 1990)
    1 Project 12421 Missile Boat (commissioned 2000, sale to Egypt)
    1 Project 1332 Minesweeper (commissioned 1973) ??

    2016 Commissions: Total = 5

    2 Project 06363 Conventional Submarines
    2 Project 11356 Frigates
    1 Project 12700 Minesweeper

    2017 Decommisssions: Total = 3

    1 Project 667BDR Nuclear Submarine (commissioned 1980)
    1 Project 11351 Frigate (commissioned 1991, Russian Coast Guard)
    1 Project 12411 Missile Boat (commissioned 1987)

    2017 Commissions: Total = 2

    1 Project 11356 Frigate
    1 Project 20380/20385 Frigate/Corvette

    2018 Decommisssions: Total = 0


    2018 Commissions: Total = 1

    1 Project 21631 Corvette

    The next stage for the Combat Fleet of the Russian Navy is a phase of stability. After a phase of reduction of the fleet the alone logical step is a phase of stability. A country does not decommission young ships to build inmediately big amounts of new ships. This is a bad business. In the following years, Russia will likely do a number of commissions very close to the number of decommissions. And this number will be low because Russia has a this point very low number of old ships.

    For the period between 2018-2025, these are the ships that I expect to go to decommission and/or scrapping:

    1 - Project 641B Conventional Submarine (captured to Ukraine)
    4 - Project 1204 15 to 500 tons Missile Boats
    4 - Project 1171 Over 500 tons Amphibious Ships
    1 - Project 1134B 5000 to 10000 tons Warship
    1 - Project 61/01090 1500 to 5000 tons Warship
    6 - Project 266 Minesweeper (1 captured to Ukraine)
    2 - Project 1176 15 to 1500 tons Amphibious ships (planned early decommission in the Coast Guard, ships ruined)

    It means 19 total ships that would be to be replaced in the period 2018-2025. More decomissions and/or scrapping would be negative.

    This is what can be expected for the period 2018-2025. It is logical then, a reduction of the budget for the Russian Navy in the new program.

    This is a link to a previously posted list of Russian Combat Ships under construction:

    http://www.russiadefence.net/t5541p150-russian-naval-construction-plans-and-update#212605

    The list is far longer than the needs in the short and mid term, but also this long list of ships under construction is part of the strategy of Russia, that only would need to increase the rythm of production in case of problems. The slow rythm of production and commission of new ships is part of the military strategy of Russia, this is not a consequence of bad management or lack of efficiency like some people want to say.

    This was the complete list, some of the ships can be to export:

    By generic role:

    48 - Warships:
    1 - Project 11540 Frigate (2 more not-completed)
    3 - Project 11356 Frigate
    1 - Project 11660/11661 Frigate (1 more not-completed)
    9 - Project 20380/20385 Frigate/Corvette
    6 - Project 21631 Corvette (1 more not completed)
    6 - Project 22350 Destroyer/Frigate
    11 - Project 22800 Corvette
    6 - Project 22160 Frigate
    2 - Project 20386 Frigate/Corvette
    2 - Project 23550 Destroyer/Frigate
    1 - Project 23560 Cruiser/Destroyer
    0 - Project 23000 Aircraft Carrier

    21 - Submarines:
    1 - Project 949/09852 Nuclear Submarine (5 more not-completed)
    6 - Project 636/06363/877/08773 Conventional Submarine (2 more not-completed)
    2 - Project 677 Conventional Submarine
    5 - Project 955 Nuclear Submarine
    6 - Project 885/08851 Nuclear Submarine
    1 - Project 09851 Nuclear Submarine

    9 - Amphibious:
    1 - Project 11770/11771 (Azov shipyard, Mariupol)
    6 - Project 21820
    2 - Project 11711

    17 - Minesweepers:
    3 - Project 1265 (1 more not-completed)
    6 - Project 10750
    1 - Project 12255 (1 more not-completed)
    7 - Project 12700

    7 - Missile Boats:
    6 - Project 12411/12417/12418/1241RE Missile Boat
    1 - Project 12300 Missile Boat

    102 - Ships under construction (13 more not-completed) Some maybe to export.

    Taking into account the role of the ships to be decommissioned, the ships with most advanced status of production, and the most likely models for a well balanced distribution of the Russian fleet, my estimation (finding a minimum) for the construction of new combat ships would be of 15 new combat ships until the end of 2025, 1.875 per year on average. The question is which of these 102 ships can be part of the around 15 combat ships that Russia can finish and commission until the end of 2025.

    To finish the construction of the first unit of a new project is very important in order to assure the capability/hability in the production of the following ships of the project. To do it for projects avoiding redundances is even more important still, becomes key. It means, that between the ships under construction is sure to see the commission before the end of 2025 of the fist unit of the following projects:

    1 - Project 23560 Over 10000 tons Warship
    1 - Project 22350 5000 to 10000 tons Warship
    1 - Project 09851 Nuclear Special Submarine
    1 - Project 11711 Over 500 tons Amphibious Ship
    1 - Project 12300 15 to 500 tons Missile Boat

    Also it is important for Russia to assure that the country is able to build modern combat ships of every cathegory. The alone cathegory out until now would be Aircraft Carriers. Russia is developing a project under the State Armament Program 2011-2020, that must be finished by 2020, Russia expects to finish the upgrading of its shipyards by 2020, and the order and begin of construction of the first unit of the Project 23000 (the alone known until now) is likely to be done under the State Armament Program 2018-2027:

    1 - Project 23000 Aircraf Carrier Warship

    Between all the list, these 6 combat ships are those which construction is the most important for Russia in the period 2018-2025, because its production, in adition to the military capabilities of the ships, will provide to Russia the hability to build new more modern projects of ships and even new types of ships that Russia produced not until now.

    Taking into account the 6 previous and the likely decommissions, the rest until 15 likely would be (unless some of these go to export):

    1 - Project 11711 Over 500 tons Amphibious Ship
    2 - Project 21820 15 to 500 tons Amphibious Ship
    1 - Project 1265 Minesweeper
    1 - Project 10750 Minesweeper
    1 - Project 12255 Minesweeper
    3 - Project 12700 Minesweeper

    Then, unles some of the new minesweepers go to export, the most likely scheme of replacement for the period 2018-2025 would be:

    1 - Project 1134B 5000 to 10000 tons Warship <-------------------------> 1 - Project 22350 5000 to 10000 tons Warship
    1 - Project 61/01090 1500 to 5000 tons Warship <----------------------> 1 - Project 23560 Over 10000 tons Warship
    1 - Project 1171 Over 500 tons Amphibious Ship <--------------------> 1 - Project 23000 Aircraf Carrier Warship
    1 - Project 1171 Over 500 tons Amphibious Ship <-------------------->
    2 - Project 1171 Over 500 tons Amphibious Ship <--------------------> 2 - Project 11711 Over 500 tons Amphibious Ship
    2 - Project 1176 15 to 500 tons Amphibious Ship <--------------------> 2 - Project 21820 15 5o 500 tons Amphibious Ship
    1 - Project 641B SSK Conventional Submarine  <-----------------------> 1 - Project 09851 Special Nuclear Submarine
    1 - Project 266 Minesweeper <----------------------------------------------> 1 - Project 10750 Minesweeper
    1 - Project 266 Minesweeper <-----------------------------------------------> 1 - Project 1265 Minesweeper
    1 - Project 266 Minesweeper <-----------------------------------------------> 1 - Project 12255 Minesweeper
    3 - Project 266 Minesweeper <-----------------------------------------------> 3 - Project 12700 Minesweeper
    1 - Project 1204 15 to 500 tons Missile Boat <----------------------------> 1 - Project 12300 15 to 500 tons Missile Boat
    3 - Project 1204 15 to 500 tons Missile Boat <---------------------------->

    That would:
    - Keep stable the combat ship fleet of Russia (in 300 ships).
    - Keep stable the balance between the sips of different roles.
    - Cover the replacement of the oldest ships (with 50 years old by 2025).
    - Reinforce the overall strenght of the fleet.
    - Assure that Russia is able of producing by 2025 modern ships of every type of combat ship. http://www.russiadefence.net/t7032p25-state-armament-program-2018-2025#208063
    - Avoid the early retirement of more young ships.
    - To keep stable the human force of the Russian Navy, that would continue in the same level, with the reduction of its fleet of auxiliary ships that is not finished still.

    Is this over optimistic? No, the alone ship that can have a narrow timeline would be the Aircraft Carrier, but the low need on other types of ships in this period helps to do a bigger effort on this project. It is about to attend priorities.

    For the period between 2026-2027, these are the ships that I expect to go to decommission and/or scrapping:

    2 - Project 775 Over 500 tons Amphibious Ship
    1 - Project 1176 Under 500 tons Amphibious Ship
    1 - Project 697 Minesweeper
    1 - Project 266 Minesweeper (captured to Ukraine)

    New orders of ships under the State Armament Program 2018-2027? Taking into account the previous analysis, including the ships that would be to decommission in 2026-2027, is likely to see new orders of:
    Aircraft Carrier (Project 23000, as commented)
    Amphibious ships over 500 tons (Project 11711 and/or one of the new Amphibious Helicopter Carriers)
    And maybe more

    Modernization of current ships? Yes. Upgrade to the new types of missiles and to make them multirole if possible.

    It is possible that Russia can afford to finish the construction of more ships in 2018-2025? Maybe, specially between the ships currently launched. Less important than the modernization of current ships.

    Design and development of new types of ships? Those most directly inspired by the Russian Maritime Doctrine of 2015 would be the main options, avoiding redundant projects:

    Priboi (Mistralski) update:
    ..the ship is clearly intended for defence purposes to protect the extensive coastline along the Arctic Ocean, or in the Black Sea and along the chain of Kuril Islands. The ship is not designed to travel across oceans, and this is where the 6,000 mile range comes from.

    Modernization of 2 CGNs will still take less time than building 5–6 new FFGs or 10 corvettes, which won't have NP. The Leader class is still on paper but very far from becoming tangible. Time will tell!

    "Now the deadline for laying the head "Leader" has been postponed already in 2025, which means that under the new State Program of 2018-2027, this issue will not receive significant funding. At one time there were even rumors that the "Leader" was simply deleted from the painting of GPV-2027, but then it was decided to allocate "some money to support the project."

    This is nothing new, I already knew all of this.

    Still poor Enhiee the guy must be in the fetal position right now. If only I had it in me to feel an ounce of pity.

    Well IMHO this is just logical : first access denial - via MRKs or subs + later  aviation (new GUZR + Kh50) ,then thinking about representing Russian flag on far and away oceans. Helicopter carriers IMHO will mostly have ASW function long  Northern Route.

    http://russianships.info/eng/warships/project_23560.htm

    This database includes not projects of ships that reached not the construction phase. As example you will not find still in the database the Project 23000, the Project Priboi, the Project Lavina, the Project Kalina, the project Husky, the Project 22500,...

    After looking about every project, I found no-one case in the database where they say a project reached the prodction phase, but is not right. My experience is that their work is right in overall terms and I found not a mistake of the importance of whicht you are accusing them of. For me the source is reliable in overall terms, unlike your word. And is one of the bests, if not the best.

    If you want to dispute the source, you can try to find in the database one case more where the database says that a project reached the production phase but is not true.

    Any project can exist on paper/computer file or in the heads of interest groups/designers for many years before they materialize or, in many cases, cancelled/curtailed. That's what happened to US Seawolf SSN (only 3 built) & Enterprise class CVN (only 1 built):
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seawolf-class_submarine
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Enterprise_(CVN-65)
    The list is very long:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Cancelled_ships_of_the_United_States_Navy
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Abandoned_military_projects_of_the_United_States

    The USSR had many cancelled project as well:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Abandoned_military_aircraft_projects_of_the_Soviet_Union
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sovetsky_Soyuz-class_battleship
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_1153_Orel
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_aircraft_carrier_Ulyanovsk

    If it makes u feel good about those projects we r discussing, hold ur breath & pray they r not cancelled before u grow old!

    Some1 wrote that "the Baltic & Black Seas r lagoons" & therefore won't need big fleets. I don't agree. They both support deployments to the Med. Sea & occasionally to the Indian Ocean.

    The Belomorkanal is also too small for the NF to reinforce the Baltic Fleet w/o going around Scandinavia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Sea%E2%80%93Baltic_Canal

    So, they both need bigger fleets for sustainability & flexibility; otherwise, the N. & Pac. Fleets will have to plug the gaps in the Med.& Red Seas & the Indian Ocean, like the CG Varyag did off Syria!

    Tsavo Lion, you link a lot of Western MSM BS about Russia and China for some reason, but this one is really good:

    Terms like A2/AD and hybrid warfare are indeed basically meaningless and "pseudo-scientific" concepts that are pure propaganda, "Gerasimov Doctrine" doesn't actually exist, etc. The author is on point. Although funnily enough he also criticizes the Color Revolution concept, which is very popular among Russophiles/anti-Americans: "At the same time, the followers of this concept, as a rule, diligently ignore the fact that no external influence will lead to a revolution if there are no internal prerequisites for it."

    He could also mention "private security companies" & Russian ChVK, i.e. mercenaries-dozens reportedly died earlier E. Ukraine & in Syria recently: https://www.google.com/search?q=mercenaries&source=lnms&tbm=nws&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjmoYb5n8TZAhVH4mMKHdxpA5sQ_AUICygC&biw=819&bih=510

    India to buy four upgraded Krivak III frigates for $3B
    http://www.janes.com/article/78204/india-to-buy-four-upgraded-krivak-iii-frigates-for-usd3-billion

    I'm sure they plan, as before, to build some more of their own as well!-
    On 12 October 2010, it was announced that the Yantar Yard at Kaliningrad on the Baltic Sea had won a contract to construct three new warships for the Russian Navy. The construction of the frigates for the Russian Navy will be carried out in parallel with the construction of the same-type frigates for the Indian Navy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krivak-class_frigate

    Project 11356P/M (Admiral Grigorovich)
    Six frigates of the Admiral Grigorovich-class were ordered [3 delivered] for the Black Sea Fleet to be built by the Yantar Yard in Kaliningrad which is also building the Talwar-class for the Indian Navy. [6 delivered, 10 planned: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talwar-class_frigate]
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krivak-class_frigate#Project_11356P/M_(Admiral_Grigorovich)

    Will any more of them be need in the RuN after the remaining 3 r delivered to the BSF?

    Lights blue touch paper.

    In early 2010s the successes in Russian military buildup triggered an euphoria. It was characterized by calls to resume the production of missile-carrying trains, sea skimmers, air-cushioned ships and total upgrade of the fleet inherited from the USSR. However, it should be admitted now that the program had failed, expert Alexander Shishkin writes in the Vzglyad business newspaper.

    Well Vzglyad is more like "bloggers digest" - no own news just digested and commented from other sources. End ths expert is AFAIK just a nave engineer nobody who runs any industrial activity.

    Russian shipbuilders to present designs of new aircraft carrier by yearend

    Military & Defense May 16, 20:32 UTC+3

    If one of the designs is approved, the experimental design work on the new aircraft carrier may begin in 2019, the source said

    MOSCOW, May 16. /TASS/. The United Ship-Building Corporation will present several finalized preliminary designs of a new domestic aircraft carrier to the Defense Ministry by the end of this year, a source in the defense sector told TASS on Wednesday.

    If one of the designs is approved, the experimental design work on the new aircraft carrier may begin in 2019, the source said.

    "The United Ship-Building Corporation has been instructed to submit its finalized proposals [on the new aircraft carrier] to the Defense Ministry for examination by the end of the year. One of the versions envisage, in particular, building an aircraft carrier with a displacement of 75,000 tonnes," the source said.

    If one of the designs is approved, "the ship’s technical designing and the preparation of the design documentation may begin from 2019 and the aircraft carrier may be laid down in 2021-2022 and its construction will last about 10 years, according to preliminary estimates," the source explained.

    Russia’s state armament program for 2018-2027 stipulates "initial financing" under the new carrier’s program.

    The United Ship-Building Corporation did not comment for TASS on the information provided by the source.

    The Russian Navy currently operates the sole medium-size oil-fueled aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov (the heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser according to the domestic classification). As the Russian Navy stated before, the fleet expects to get a cutting-edge nuclear-powered aircraft carrier with a displacement of no less than 70,000 tonnes by late 2030.

    The Krylov State Research Center earlier designed and unveiled a preliminary design of an aircraft carrier for foreign customers, which was also offered for the domestic Navy. Project 23000 was named Storm. Its sketch design suggests the aircraft carrier will displace 80,000-90,000 tonnes and feature a combined powerplant (both the nuclear reactor and the gas turbine engine). The carrier’s air group is expected to comprise up to 60 aircraft.

    To compare this with previous news:

    http://www.russiadefence.net/t7201p50-discussion-about-construction-or-not-of-ac-destroyers-cruisers-for-runavy#218000

    The pollution was instead in the insults of the people that were allowed by him and GarryB to insult me because of exposing a lot of reality in this forum and this topic.

    You was full wrong George1 only rest to you to recognize it.

    The reality always comes to put the wrong arguments in the right place.

    Vladimir Putin discussed the problems of rearmament of the Navy

    https://bmpd.livejournal.com/3201649.html

    As Ivan Safronov writes in the article "Cephalopod" surfaced in Bocharov Creek , published in the newspaper Kommersant , on Wednesday, in the presence of President Vladimir Putin, military and industry representatives discussed the problems of cooperation of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC), because of which the deadlines execution of the state defense order. The military repeatedly raised this issue at internal meetings, but the situation remained almost unchanged. The president's intervention is designed to prevent similar problems in the implementation of the new state armament program until 2027, in which trillions of rubles are allocated for the development of the Navy.

    Opening the meeting, Vladimir Putin recalled that the Navy is "the most important factor in the country's military, economic security, maintaining strategic parity" and "in general, a significant tool for ensuring our national interests." The latter included, in particular, the actions of ships and submarines that struck during the military operation in Syria strikes on positions of the militants with cruise missiles of the "Caliber" type from the waters of the Mediterranean and Caspian seas. "We will continue to equip the Navy with the latest systems of weapons, communications, reconnaissance and target designation." As before, the quality requirements, the deadlines for fulfilling the tasks of the state defense order should remain the most stringent, "the president said, recognizing" problematic issues "with both the creation of new equipment and the repair of the already delivered equipment. Then the meeting continued in a closed mode for the press:

    The main topic of the meeting was the execution of the state defense order by enterprises that are part of the USC cooperation, two sources of Kommersant in the shipbuilding industry and an official close to the leadership of the Defense Ministry say. The military is concerned about the negative statistics of the failure of the terms of contracts for the supply of ships and submarines, provided timely advance and payment, one of the interlocutors of Kommersant admits.

    For this reason, not only high-ranking military officers (acting Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Deputy Minister for Armaments Yuri Borisov, Navy Commander Vladimir Korolyov, etc.) were summoned to Sochi and the industry leadership (OSK President Alexei Rakhmanov and acting Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov), but the managers of the enterprises of the shipbuilding industry - Sevmash, Severnaya Verf, Zvezda and TsKB of marine engineering Rubin.

    Re-equipment of the Navy was one of the priorities of the previous state program of armaments: in 2011-2020, the fleet planned to allocate about 4.7 trillion rubles, of which almost half were to go for serial purchases of new weapons and equipment. However, by early 2018, only three of the eight strategic nuclear submarines of Project 955 Borei (the standard carrier of the Bulava ICBM) and one of the seven multi-purpose submarines of Project 885 Yasen (carrier of cruise missiles) were introduced into the Navy. The situation was no better with combat surface ships: according to the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies, the Navy received only four frigates and eleven corvettes (of 15 and 35 ordered accordingly) during this time. According to the interlocutor of "Kommersant" in the industry, in part the problems are objective:

    In February, March and May, during the conference calls, Sergei Shoigu criticized USC enterprises, accusing them of disrupting the terms of their obligations under contracts, but, according to the Kommersant source, the situation did not improve, so the discussion reached the presidential level. Meanwhile, in the new state armament program until 2027 (about 4 trillion rubles in the part of the Navy) there are extremely important projects that can not be "shifted to the right" under any circumstances, the source of Kommersant in the department continues, - the construction of strategic nuclear submarines " Borey B, multi-purpose submarines of the fifth generation of the Husky type (carrier of hypersonic missiles Zirkon), non-nuclear submarines Kalina. Under special control, according to "Kommersant", there are projects of underwater drones such as "Cephalopod" and "Status-6"

    According to the expert of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies Konstantin Makienko, USC has a number of old problems, which it is unlikely to solve in the existing model of the industry management. But you can try to focus on projects that are key to the country's defense capability (strategic and multi-purpose nuclear submarines) or are already launched into the series, the expert believes.

    I have read that the productivity of Russian shipyards is 20% of international mean value... from the values in Austin's post and notwithstanding the issue with the engines, the situation seems a complete disaster...

    Any idea, why all those problems? Have they already solved them for GPV 2027?

    A lot has to do with politics and the Navy not knowing what it wants.

    You start building a ship and than someone comes and tells you: "Stop using this or that component, because it´s foreign" or part of your suppliers stops delivering items because you are in Russia... Well, that´s not good for productivity.

    Then look at the Steregutschij. Series production in the first yard was accelerating, then comes the Navy and wants the ships with cruise missiles. The yard stops production, the ship is redesingned and the production starts over again. But years are lost. Same with the Gren. First the Navy wants six vessels, mostly for coastal and littoral areas. But it should be well armed. Than they change their mind, reduce the weapon load, just to save a few bucks. Then Medveded/Serdukhov come along and decide, that the Mistral will be bought. The production is stopped for years.
