    Considering the sophistication of this class and the large number of sophisticated systems that it incorporates, its complement of 700-800 is already a tiny complement and is a result of extreme automation.

    Can some one tell me what is the final weapons configuration for upgraded Nakhimov if its known officially ?

    Like number and types of SAM , SSM , CIWS , Torpedoes etc

    The only thins I´ve read in ria news was 80 Calibers as ASch warfare. Unfortunately cannot find it now. I am also curious what will be after 2020 with her.

    I just found this on Google image (http://z13.invisionfree.com/TheBelkanEmpire/index.php?showtopic=140&view=getnewpost). Not a reliable source but it has nice images.

    Tor isn't obsolate in its last variants. A short range missile against anti ship missiles, maybe also against shells ... So they can load all the UKSK with long range Redut/S400.


    Can someone translate what's written ?

    ^^ Well we can imagine russia's one will be similar to this one.

    Shocked 144 Oniks/kalibr = 144 Million $ (if one of them is 1 Million $) It's the cost of a Steregoushchi. It has more anti ship missile than a normal navy has Anti air missiles Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

    Holy, that sounds like quite the system really. Vertical launchers for Klub and S-300FM? Hopefully something more modern though for S-300FM.

    I would assume in addition to replacing Onyx with a hypersonic missile they will also likely upgrade Kalibr with a longer ranged model too.

    According to state television news (broadcast of 11.10.2015),[15] launch of production took place in 2012. Details of this version[16] - the maximum speed of Mach 3, the range of 4,000 km, basing in the air, on land, on water and under water (shows launch from water depth). The missile can make in-flight maneuvers 147 times or more (in any direction), the minimum height of 10 meters, an average of 20 – 50 meters (up to 1000), it will automatically follow terrain, the missile can be controlled in flight.

    Copied from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3M-54_Klub

    Could this be the new long ranged Cruise missile?

    As seen from the link, this is a description of Klub, though the 4,000km range and mach three speed are unlikely especially at that altitude... such features are incompatible... it might be a 2.5 ton turbojet powered missile with a range of 4,000km as the air launched Kh-101/102 can reportedly manage 5,500km range but at subsonic speed. Alternatively the mach 3 speed at low altitude would require a powerful ramjet or scramjet engine which would use a lot of fuel at low altitudes and therefore have no where near that range with that speed.

    There is one model of Klub that could actually fit that description... the supersonic anti ship model with a turbojet for most of the flight and a rocket for the last stage could manage that sort of performance... of course for the vast majority of the flight it would cruise at medium altitude at subsonic speed well outside the range of enemy radar... and then when it got to perhaps within 500km of the target area it could drop down to low altitude to hide behind the radar horizon. when it got to the radar horizon of the target the main rocket would fire and the missile would cover the last 40-50kms at high speed and very low level under rocket propulsion.

    An upgraded model with a scramjet for the final phase to extend that period of high speed at very low level would be interesting...

    This could be an upgrade of the supersonic Klub... a supersonic model with a scramjet motor for the final phase of flight... ie subsonic medium altitude flight for 3-4,000km, and then jettison the main body and large wings and turbojet engine and start up a scramjet engine to accelerate the now much lighter missile to very high speeds for the last 1,000km of the route would be interesting...

    Of course Zircon probably is more like Onyx or Moskit and climbs and accelerates to high altitude and high speed immediately to reduce attack time and enemy reaction time assuming it will be detected at long range anyway.

    Glad to see MR-800 and MR-710 are going to be replaced with better sensors. Probably adding fixed arrays or a stronger dual-faced AESA radar on the mast. Anyway superior quality targeting and volume search over his previous systems.

    Newer systems will have better performance and also be cheaper to maintain and lighter and likely smaller in terms of components and racks, though antennas might be bigger.

    Regarding artillery support in Syria, the Kirovs only had 130mm guns, so its ability to provide fire support would be very limited. It would need to remain offshore several kms to prevent the local nutters lining her up with conventional land artillery and ATGMs, so its reach inshore would be pathetic.

    An Su-25 on the other hand can accurately deliver much heavier HE payloads to where ever it is needed using guided and unguided rockets and bombs and would be much more flexible.

    With a proper self defence suite it should be safe from MANPADS and as long as it flys above small arms fire it should be able to pick and hit targets at will.

    No need for keeping a small towns worth of Russian Navy personnel offshore for long periods.

    That doesn't make sense Nakhimov is supposed to be done with its overhaul by 2018 and assuming they start even mass producing the missiles by 2018 don't know if they will be ready to mount them on ships. Unless they are going to pull the time table back which giving Russian ship building ability, this wouldn't shock me really.

    Nakhimov will take longer most likely, and even when overhaul is done it will need factory and sea trials... Also it wont only carry Zircons but Kalibrs also.

    Yes it will need trials still that means construction of the ship would be done, there would be zero point in launching it only to return it dock months later to refit it again. They said its refit will be done by 2018 and after that they will test it on the sea. From what I understand anyway.

    So if that link is correct Nakhmov won't be done by 2018 with its construction work. I mean I don't blame them may has well wait a bit more to get the Zircons mounted on the ship, it makes sense.

    Nakhimov gets S-300FM (like Peter the Great) and Paket-NK, no Redut.
    Its definitely getting new radars at least: the big MP-650 Boletus, Fregat & 5P-20K Poliment are listed. (can Poliment direct S-300 missiles instead of Top Dome? Or does it definitely imply 9M96?)

    Can some one tell me what is the final weapons configuration for upgraded Nakhimov if its known officially ?
    Its going to be really interesting to see what it actually comes out with.

    Here are a couple of versions of what it might wind up looking like I've found (sorry if too big?)

    At the light end this fan-made one has Boletus & Fregat, the quoted 80 UKSK cells (which look too big) & 96 AA cells. (not sure if intended as S-300 size or Redut)
    Upgraded Kirov class: Project 11442 [Admiral Nakhimov] - Page 12 AJP86jS
    On the face of it the big Boletus up so high on the foremast looks crazy but Kirovs have already had a similar size radar there.
    Has an extra AK-130 forward & changed Kashtan locations which there is no indication of being planned.

    On the other end of the scale is this one (from a book?) which did the rounds of blogs like BMPD a few months back
    Upgraded Kirov class: Project 11442 [Admiral Nakhimov] - Page 12 YSCTywr
    Stupendous 240 UKSK cells plus same number of Redut AA cells (and 64 Tor? But seems to be missing proper S-300 cells).
    Has Poliment & Fregat but is missing Boletus.
    If the UKSK scaling is correct here you can see that 'only' 80 cells will look positively anaemic.

    If it gets the Redut instead of the S-300 Fort, it can't use very long range missiles to shoot Awacs. It will just have 120km range missiles. They should just improve radars and new missiles. It has already a lot of missiles without redut cells.

    These fan-boi concepts don't look practical as they ignore the presence of the large superstructure block that sits forward of the bridge, and which features a pair of Cross-Dome radomes.  Aerial/satellite shots showing the Nahkimov in her early refit stages show that this superstructure remains intact, and I can't imagine that the systems contained within can simply be deleted to make room for more VLS modules.  Additionally, cutting out such structure and extending the VLS bay poses the issue of impact of the vessels structural rigidity/integrity.  Not every concept one can imagine can actually be acheived within the parctical bounds of engineering realities.
