    The Baltic is not a huge priority, though they will likely be replaced eventually... as a patrol boat they have reasonable armament, while they do have obsolete weapons it really isn't cost effective to update those weapons... makes more sense to just keep using them till replacements are ready and then retire them.

    Besides most Baltic states hardly have anything that requires something better anyway... the don't have their own air forces... do they have navies?
    the Baltic fleet's main threat is the Swedish navy which has quite advanced ships. In war project 133s, armed only with manpads and virtually no antiship weaponry and also their ASW is completely obsolete by todays standards, they would be more a burden than an asset. The project 133 was a corvette originally developed for the Volksmarine not thus it was less powerful than its soviet equivalent, the albatross class makes a lot more sense to be in service than that warsaw pact monkey model.
    Also are there any plans to have pr.21630 corvettes for fleets other than the caspain one? Why would you need such a heavily armed ship basicly very large lake without threat countries? The USSR churned up more than a dozen corvettes every year and while this isn't possible for Russia today can the building span of a >1000 t ship be done in a few months rather than 1 or 2 years?
    Meanwhile can the project 133s be at leats upgraded with igla-S instead of the useless strela 2?

    There is no purpose to having powerful ships in the Baltic fleet for the moment... building up the Baltic fleet would send a message to the baltic navies that Russia has intentions in those areas... and really she doesn't.

    Sweden can remain the little superpower of the Baltic for all it matters to Russia... Russia has other areas that need new ships much more urgently.

    Eventually all the old vessels will be replaced, but for the moment the Caspian Sea, the Black Sea, the Northern Fleet and the Pacific Fleet are all rather more important than the Baltic Fleet.

    Why would you need such a heavily armed ship basicly very large lake without threat countries?

    It is not that a heavily armed ship was needed in the Caspian Fleet, it was simply a case that even small ships will be very heavily armed and equipped, and the result will be very capable small vessels.

    It would not make sense to custom make small vessels for each Fleet, so I suspect the Baltic Fleet will get theirs eventually... the difference will likely be later models having improved sensors and equipment and small design changes based on operational experience with the early models.

    The USSR churned up more than a dozen corvettes every year and while this isn't possible for Russia today can the building span of a >1000 t ship be done in a few months rather than 1 or 2 years?

    Production needs to be sustainable, and these are no longer simple cheap boats anymore, but I suspect production should ramp up once they feel they have a good product that works and all the bugs are worked out.

    Meanwhile can the project 133s be at leats upgraded with igla-S instead of the useless strela 2?

    Makes sense to use cheap simple weapons on old boats operating in areas of low importance and save the newer more capable missiles for where and when they are needed... it should mean more money available when it comes time to upgrade the boats.

    Even with an Igla launcher having a few Strelas for practise makes sense.

    Excellent article Austin. It has good info about Lada subs. Seems very formidable.



    And repair and modernization of Oscar and Akula class is going just fine. Three subs this year.


    - K-410 Smolensk cruise missile submarine

    - K-150 Tomsk cruise missile submarine

    - K-419 Kuzbass attack submarine


    Three Russian Nuke Subs to Be Recommissioned in 2013




    MOSCOW, May 1 (RIA Novosti) – Three nuclear submarines of the Russian Navy currently under maintenance will be recommissioned by 2014, a Navy spokesman told journalists Tuesday.

    The K-410 Smolensk cruise missile submarine, which is undergoing repairs since 2011, will resume its service in the Northern Fleet, the spokesman said.

    The Pacific Fleet will be rejoined by the K-150 Tomsk cruise missile submarine, which was docked in 2010 due to problems with the cooling engine of its nuclear reactor; and the K-419 Kuzbass attack submarine, under repairs since 2010. The Kuzbass belongs to the same Akula II class as the ill-fated K-152 Nerpa, on which 20 people were killed during sea trials in 2008 due to malfunction of the fire suppression system.


    The Russian Navy has 48 nuclear submarines, 20 of which are currently undergoing repairs or upgrade, according to Russian-ships.info database.

    If anyone is interested, a while ago I slapped together a list of the major surface and underwater combatants in the Russian Navy, and their service status.
    Have not updated it in a while, so that's going to happen time permitting. Only major classes:

    I also left out the Peter the Great, due to laziness Very Happy

    Nah I left them out just because their status is easily accessible, unlike multiple-ship classes with varying service status.

    Its will be nuclear.

    Created a new Russian nuclear-powered aircraft carrier should surpass all the world's ships of this class - Commander of the Navy


    MOSCOW, May 18. (ARMS-TASS). Created a new Russian nuclear-powered aircraft carrier should surpass all the world's ships of this class. This was stated by Itar-Tass Russian Navy Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov.

    "The work on the creation of long-term appearance of a new nuclear aircraft carrier for our Navy. This work is a series bureaus and defense organizations in St. Petersburg. The results for the establishment of long-term appearance of the aircraft carrier regularly receives reports to the Ministry of Defence and the Main Command of the Navy," - said he says.

    "We do not need an aircraft carrier yesterday and today, and really promising ship, capable of performing the task in collaboration with groups of surface ships, submarines, spacecraft constellation. He must have tremendous level of engagement in a climate of any difficulty, any sea and ocean theater, "- said the commander in chief.

    According to him, the new Russian aircraft carrier in their seagoing, combat and functional characteristics "should surpass all existing ships of this class." "This is our stringent requirement on the industry, and we will not give up on him," - said Teals.
    Currently, the Russian Navy has only one heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser "Admiral Kuznetsov", standing in the arsenal of the Northern Fleet. There is a program to modernize until 2020.

    In December 2012 Teals said that serial production of the new domestic carriers will start from 2021. "During the period of 2021-2030 years building our combat capability will be provided through the serial construction of aircraft carriers in the future maritime aircraft carrier complex, multipurpose nuclear submarine of the 4th generation, multi-purpose ocean-going ships, long-range and short-range maritime zone," - he said then.

    Teal said that the creation of a marine aircraft carrier set includes not only the construction of aircraft carriers themselves, but basing points with the necessary infrastructure, aircraft, crew training centers.

    Going by current ship construction rates, I can only imagine how long the building and commission will take D:

    2021 is a good date though. By that point the situation will either improve, or carrier dreams can be abandoned.

    Problem identified. 30% behind schedule.


    Putin Calls on Shipbuilder to Speed Up Naval Deliveries


    SOCHI, May 21 (RIA Novosti) – Russian President Vladimir Putin criticized the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) on Tuesday for delays in delivery of warships to the Russian Navy and demanded the shipbuilders improve efficiency.

    “Problems still remain with deadlines and the quality of implementation of orders, including defense projects. In particular, the construction of a number of nuclear submarines and surface ships and their delivery to the navy has been unjustifiably delayed," Putin said at a meeting with USC officials.

    The president called on Russian shipbuilders to accelerate the delivery of ships to the customer without impairing their quality.
    “The corporation must work smoothly, producing warships. This is one of the key tasks facing the USC's new management," Putin said.
    Putin announced at the meeting that Vladimir Shmakov, first deputy CEO of tank manufacturer Uralvagonzavod, has been appointed the new USC head.

    The president ordered USC's management to submit a report by October 15 on measures to improve the situation in the industry.
    Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov confirmed after the meeting that the USC had failed to keep with the schedule on about 30 percent of contracts with the Defense Ministry.

    He said that the USC will hire foreign sub-contractors to help the company fulfill the delayed contracts.
    United Shipbuilding Corporation, established in 2007, is Russia’s largest shipbuilding and ship repair company. It comprises nine design bureaus and 39 shipyards. USC currently accounts for 70 percent of the domestic shipbuilding industry, according to its website. The corporation is wholly owned by the state.

    The Russian Navy is expected to receive 24 submarines and 54 warships of various classes by 2020, according to the Defense Ministry.

    Russian Navy To Upgrade Il-38 Patrol Fleet

    Unlike the Sea Dragon, the Novella has a non-exportable electronic reconnaissance module. The core system is based on modern digital computers and features two operator consoles each with two LCD screens and the commander’s “big picture” tactical situation on a large LCD; a highly sensitive magnetic anomaly detector; a high-resolution thermal imager; and various other sensors. Research and development started in the 1980s, leading to a prototype trials aircraft in 2001. The ambitious program suffered repeated delays and several revisions of the original specification, driven by the need to add new technologies that became available over time.

    The decision to upgrade the Il-38s was a hard one for the MoD, which long hesitated whether to outfit a relatively small fleet needing extensive airframe life extension work. The Indian aircraft have received a 40-year life extension. The Il-38N retains the original airplane’s crew of seven, 68-tonne mtow and 5.5- to 8.5-ton internal payload capability for various buoys, torpedoes, mines and depth charges.

    It is good they are doing this, but I am a little disappointed they are not going with a new platform to base it around.

    Got to start somewhere I suppose... Smile

    On slightly happier note, one of the few truly active 956s, the Nastoichivy, getting ready for Baltic Fleet Day.

    I have always found the 956s to be handsome looking vessels.

    From memory they carried something like 2,000 130mm shells.

    Basically-repair.
    It took so long because it was @ Pier for well over a year while they figured out contract/money I guess.

    Any modernization would only be small (navigation systems, new communication/screens the like), and MAYBE something like new laser/optics that were spotted on Varyag a while back.

    Btw, I still haven't found any details on that.

    Zvezdochka said no new weapons as of now.

    Upon receiving Boreys RF’s Navy to resume strategic submarines patrol in southern latitudes

    “As the Russian Navy receive the Borey class missile submarines, they will not only continue to patrol the Arctic, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, but will resume execution of combat missions in those regions of the world’s ocean, where in the late 90s of the last century used to be the Soviet Navy, and where they have ceased to appear following the collapse of the Soviet Union," the source said.

    The Russian Navy’s strategic submarines of the Northern and Pacific fleets will patrol in the southern latitudes, the source said.
