    Cost effective? Sure, same as Serbian river flotilla is far more cost effective than US Navy.

    "Better than the US in ship design and building"...

    Now you are trolling us abit here.

    Small ship that can launch 2000 km range rocket?

    Cheap and effective?

    That is the point.

    The decisions/ designs follow a clear low cost/ high return strategy.

    Something that you miss from the CCCP / USA naval shipbuilding.

    For Russia, the real make it / break it moment will be the Kazan.

    That will be the first , top range / top complexity weapon system made in Russia since the collapse of the CCCP.

    Actually, that will be the most complex / sophisticated  submarine build in the past 20 years on the earth - if they can make it in two years.


    But based on the BN-800 and FNPP they have now the necessary management skills.

    Unlike some here i have Master degree in technical field, and i worked on more than one military/police project as contractor as far as my IT department goes. And dont.. just dont explain me how "real time data sharing" works i beg you, i dont mean disrespect but if you recall i am com officer.

    And yes, majority of Russian MOD manuals are garbage assembled from data from the Internet... you can buy some on Ebay and see for yourself. At least they removed Wiki hyperlinks.

    And no, it has to do with how intelligence department works. All of you online warriors think its bunch of guys sitting in front of huge wall covering LCD screen live feeding satelite imagery. In reality its nowhere even close, majority of intelligence agencies do not even have access to such resources and they recieve them via second hand upon request.

    Russian intelligence officers were coming to our units asking, begging and bribing to get pieces and take photos of Tomahawks, Predators and those German UAVs i even forgot the name and similar.

    While alot of stuff can be researched in labs..that is in almost 90% of cases pure guessing. Until you have item in your hands to inspect it properly, see electronics, or whatever, depending on what we are talking about, you dont have anything solid. There are hundreds of cases where false data and false informations were passed via counter-intelligence in last few decades, and we are aware of more than few cases were Soviets were chasing such data which had no value whatsoever so they wasted valuable resources.

    Well i told you what is the fact, now what you think or belive..well..its your right.

    That is not what "Better than the US in ship design and building"... means. What BETTER means is when Russia makes real 80.000t+ aircraft carrier with catapult that works. When they make cruise liner for 4000 tourists. When they make Super tanker that doesnt have 80% of its pumps and electronics imported from Germany and South Korea. When they make ship that can carry 20.000 TEUs. Making some 800t ship and clap 8 cells VLS on it... is not "better" its "this is best we can do atm".

    You think Russians are happy with Buyan-Ms and Gorshkovs? You think they wouldnt like to recieve 11.000t destroyer every year? Ofc they would, but its not happening coz they cant make the damn thing atm nor they could afford the upkeep of it.

    Croatia has atm few times bigger gross tonnage output in shipbuilding than Russia, are you aware of that? Tiny, tiny, tiny Croatia. So please stop insulting everyones intelligence here by claiming stuff like that.

    But, clearly you are more experienced in this field, I wasn't attempting to educate you on how these things work.

    There is no need to know everything about all the weapon the other has. You know tomahawaks are long range missiles which flies at very low altitudes so pantsir will be good at shooting them, who care of there electronic. I mean it isn't because you know how a rifle is made that it won't kill you.

    USSR tried to spy western tech but that made them always behind western in technologies. It's logic. Russia learned that and isn't doing the same mistake.

    Russia managed to take control of a US drone in Crimea and in Iran (russian technology) so they are not so behind western specialy now that Asian countries are matching US in electronics and that their is no more Military electronics. I visited MBDA with my school and one ingineer said us that's a problem for them because they have to use civilian electronics which are more delicate.


    The LRASM is just a cruise missile with a radar. Put a radar on a Kalibr 2500km+ and you have the same missile.

    Russia has better ship building then United States?. I pray this is a joke,

    The Navy is third for Russia and always will be.

    The United States NAVy is number ONE for us so it gets the most funds.

    Lets compare the rate of construction of ships for Russia and the US with tonnage you got to be FANBOYING HARD over Russia to honestly believe russia has a better ship building program then the states.

    Russia can't even get 2k plus tonnage ships out in two years and you telling us they are better than a nation who can get such a ship out faster. That is hilarious.

    for submarines sure you can argue Russia is better than the US in that area but surface ships, hell no. Russia has a very very very very weak shipbuilding program. I don't even want to know how long it will take hem to finish one Lider class, nevermind the yearly delays they will announce with a single ship of that class.

    it is bit more than that .

    Evaluate the requirements,set the project parameters, design the ships, build them.


    It is easy to pump out big ships,north korea does that.

    The key is to do all of that effectivly : )

    Just as the US has had to have a major military shipbuilding ability for the last 100 years or so, Russia, apart from its MAD ballistic submarines and their protectors, has not.

    That is why the RuN is tiny in comparison to the USN and some other world navies. It is why the RuN will get updated but will never amount to much, it has no need to project itself on the other side of oceans. If Russia wants to go somewhere it drives there. It is the world's only land based super power.

    Just look at Syria for example, the K and its little fleet are just puff, completely unnecessary. The real naval work done there was done primarily by a small group of old, large, but not large in US terms, landing craft, a few clapped out old merchant ships bought in for the job, moving the best part of 45,000 tons a month, with a couple of frigates and a sub to keep them company. Compare that to the US Sealift Command.

    The Russian military is above all else a defensive, second strike operation. The RuN has and will only get money for that activity. So much of the discussion in this tread seems to be a bit, how shall I say it, optimistic.

    But, clearly you are more experienced in this field, I wasn't attempting to educate you on how these things work.

    I cant say i am very experienced in field of intelligence, i just have few experiences, some of which are first hand, as intelligence and counter-intelligence is not my field. However i did work on few such programs, recon platform for police for an example, distance sound recording, border security... all again from the aspect of me being an IT.

    Well, Internet is not main source of data, but alot of it comes via it, and certain figures like to exploit it. I know by chance that one person on Keypublishing is "Russian mole", simply coz i recognised his writing type on few other places, where he starts very peculiar discussions and provokes certain NATO servicemen/ex servicemen into saying some things they would not normally. Lets call it, "online interogation method", as he does it very well and noone literally is noticing. Also i know at least one person in Serbian MOD (personal friend of mine) that works similar job regarding certain.... Islamic elements.

    For an example few years back, almost complete drawings of certain French SAGEM radio relay station emerged online, guess what certain Asian army suddenly started fielding few months later?

    And yes, false flags and flase data is part of the job, counter-intelligence exists for a reason. However somehow though Cold War it was almost always Russians who chased ghosts.

    Anyways today two most important sources of senstive data are servers, sadly to access majority of them you need a man from the inside, as servers of such kind are 99% of the time off the grid, aka not accessible via WWW. So core of intelligence job is bribe, extortion...its not very pretty job tbh.

    Well there are always some "civilian grade" electronics in military equpment, simply as it would be just overwelmingly expencive to produce few dozen or hundred of certain PCBs just for that system while completely working and useful civilian one exists. That is the most noticeable in communication equipment. However same goes for Russians, here we repaired Russian com equipment with spares from civilian consumer electronics, sure.. some cappacitor might not be identical but if its 560 µF and PCB requires 540µF, its all fine, just solder the thing.

    Well LRASM is abit more than just that it has GPS reciever, IIR seeker, terminal radar guidance, RWR, as they claim "AI" system to ignore and evade neutral and friendly ships, land attack capabilities are kept from its older brother...

    Just look at Syria for example, the K and its little fleet are just puff, completely unnecessary. The real naval work done there was done primarily by a small group of old, large, but not large in US terms, landing craft, a few clapped out old merchant ships bought in for the job, moving the best part of 45,000 tons a month, with a couple of frigates and a sub to keep them company. Compare that to the US Sealift Command.

    The Russian military is above all else a defensive, second strike operation. The RuN has and will only get money for that activity. So much of the discussion in this tread seems to be a bit, how shall I say it, optimistic.

    The US is a very minor shipbuilding player , behind the EU even , and magnitude(s) smaller capacity/capability than china or japan or korea.


    The Russian shipbuilding capacity is roughly on par with the US.

    Don`t forget, the past 40 years of US foreign politics throw under the bus the manufacturing middle class.

    As I see there is a nic and well planned strategy behind the RU naval development.


    They want to build five super icebreaker, this with the collapse of the arctic ice cap size will create a shipbulding/economical boom comparable to the panama canal openning.

    The icebreakers will create the required capacity/capability for the manufacturing of main naval ships, and will increase the area of movements of them.

    Blah blah blah.... Russian Navy is not US Navy so it is crap.

    Fact is US Navy is a force for evil in this world and the sooner it drains the funds from the US social programmes the sooner the US will have their next civil war and become irrelevant.

    The Russian Navy is performing its mission.

    I don't think they perform their mission very well, as they have no clearly defined doctrine since 1992 and vessel construction is slow to non-existent. They've inducted zero modern destroyers or cruisers for over a quarter of a century and they struggle with small numbers of frigates. Excl. some few SSKs, FACs, corvettes and nuclear deterrent (which is tremendously weakened in terms of numbers), at the moment, the RuN is on standby, readying for a long transitional period.

    Effectively it won't be until late 2020s or early 2030s till they can get the job done. Meantime the likes of PRC, Japan and ROK are clearly taking the lead in key naval warfare facets. Also, India seems to be buying its way into this (foolishly but steadily).

    You are wrong.

    You are saying that Russian Navy needs to dominate the worlds oceans like US Navy tries to.

    That has never been and will never be the mission of the Russian Navy.

    The job of the Russian Navy is to maintain an SSBN fleet able to wipe all the western shit off the surface of the planet and they already achieve that.

    In addition to that mission they need a force that can defend Russia and deal with threats in and around her waters.

    The fact that they have not built any new cruisers means nothing when was the last time the British Navy built anything bigger than a destroyer that was not a carrier?

    How is the British fleet looking right now... they don't even have any ASW aircraft so a couple of Gepards would rip them a new one.

    Of course all those US cruisers have been crucial in the US conflict against terrorism.... not.

    For the hysterical morons on this board pissing and shitting on Russians (Militarov et al.):

    1) Every aircraft operating from the Kuznetsov has crashed, right? That is the logic you are peddling when you claim
    the systems on this ship "don't work".

    2) Russia can't build a tanker, hah. Please go peddle your drivel to retards on the NATO boards. You claim to be some sort of
    expert. You are an obvious poser. Trying to portray some cruise ship as more complex than a Kirov class has exposed you
    as a dipshit. So a ship's technical complexity is only a function of its size, eh...LOL.

    3) You were hyping the "ukrainian" marine turbines as being out of reach for Russia. Saturn is starting serial production
    at the end of next year.

    Basically go and sod off.

    I don't think that's true. Russia has evolved beyond that 90s-00s, overcompensating, last-resort semi-doctrine.
    What their recent operations seem to show is a more expeditionary-oriented mindset, one that seeks blue water as an objective. They are trying.

    They are largely inferior at sea, they know it. I don't think comparing the RuN to the USN is fair or even valid.
    There's a broader context in this and includes historical, financial, economic and technological issues that surround this reality.

    For a start, stop refering to people as "hysterical morons" just coz they do not agree with your...well...lets call it opinion. Opinions of a man with no military or engineering background must be very valuable ofc.

    No, not every.. just... lets calculate... 100/15*2 = 13,3% of its fixed wing detachment in... 10 days, out of combat.

    And no, i did not say Russia "cant build a tanker", i said Russia cant build a tanker without hundreds of components that are obtained from Germany, South Korea, Japan... and few other countries. Various pumps, valves, sensors, PLCs... Director of Sevmash himself last year said they import 40% of electronic components it was posted on this forum.

    Kirov was not build by Russia, for a start.. dipshit. Kirov was built by USSR. And yes, current cruise ships are in terms of shipbuilding as itself are far, far beyond what any destroyer in this world is. Have you ever even been on one?



    What i said stands, Russians never produced marine turbine engines. I said and i still stand behind it that Russians will have major issues with transmission and gearbox systems for those engines. Turbine itself are not a problem at all, and i said that more than once, they already have turbines themself. I have strong vibes you do not know what turbine engine actually is...

    That is all nice and dandy, you are all linking that icebreaker twice a day, how does that really reflects on a fact that Croatia doubles gross tonnage output of Russia again? I must have missed that one...

    Actually atm imo we have no clue wtf is their "mission". I dont think they have real doctrine and plan at this moment. They are building small ships and diesel electric subs, and dream about Carriers, LHDs and destroyers, yet they claim they do not need them as they do not need to project power... 3 fleet commanders even claim different things. Then they bought bunch of commercal rust-buckets to transport goods to Syria in late 2015....

    And then you have this expedition to Syria, then you have ships that are not supposed to be ocean-going ships sailing to Syrian coast then... its a mess. I personally do not see any doctrine there. They tried bying Mistrals then when they were denied everyone started saying "meeeh Russia doesnt need them anyways". Now they overhaul Nakhimov...they now plan to overhaul Kuz...

    So which one is it?

    My 5 cents are like this, yes, Russia does want to be able and project power, yes, Russia does want to be blue water navy, but atm there are no facilities for that. There is not enough of ships, there is not enough of capital ships, there is no enough friendly ports, there is not enough of auxilary ships (here i mean supply ships, oilers, weapon transport ships etc) and there is severe issue with shipbuilding. That is what i think. Now some might agree, some might disagree but i keep my right to say what i think.

    Well, Nikolaev shipyard was huge and actually when you think about it major source of capital ships for USSR during 70s and 80s so yeah with lose of Nikolaevo Russia lost majority of its capital shipbuilding potential. But other shipyards could have taken over that job if there was any money, but there was none. So even if it remained in Russia post USSR collapse not much would change.

    Maybe if Russia now had Nikolaev resources which it had when it was in full swing in 80s... maybe, maybe. Nikolaev shipyard atm is not really what it was, not enough skilled workers, many facilities are in sorry state... no modernisation in any aspect was performed...

    I know what a turbine engine is, and is not the most impressive technology today. I think Russia can produce decent engines with some work. A work they are doing. If they respect their acceptation testing standards, I'm sure they will have good enough engines at the end of the process, that may require some time but not too much.

    Turbine engine technology is not used only for naval purposes, it is used also as example in the energy sector for power generation. Surely Russia has civil engineers that know them well enough and surely are helping.

    It is when it comes to efficient, reliable and high performance ones.
    Ask GE, PW and RR.

    Although marine gas turbines don't necessarily need to be cutting edge and usually are conversions of  older aerospace variants. Of course in that field I'd expect the gearbox/transmission plays much more vital role.

    There is people in Russia to do turbine engines. Only need time for a right process of diversification
