    Navy called the publication of the newspaper "Izvestia" incompetent
    http://vpk-news.ru/news/15524

    "The author in his reasoning creates confusion in the rules of clothing allowances of officers, military personnel and contractual military service. To a certain credibility used quotes from dubious sources who do not know any terminology or understanding of the differences between subjects working uniforms, tropical uniforms, casual uniforms of sailors, "- he said. According to him, "the current working uniform of conscripts, consisting of sets of cotton navy blue caps and currently meets all the conditions of life on the ships."

    "In 2008. for military personnel of all categories (from sailor to officer) was additionally introduced seafarers working uniform with reflective strips to work exclusively on the upper deck. It is moisture, retains heat and is used for mooring ships and other works on the upper deck with a view of adverse weather conditions and poor visibility, "- said the representative of the Navy.

    "It is not true, and the author's article that caps and hats in the Navy will be replaced by knitted hats and berets", - he said.

    "The officers' blue jacket with stand-up collar was introduced additionally in 2011, and not as a substitute for other items of uniforms, as stated in the article. The tunic is designed for officers and established itself over time as the subject of comfortable traditional form of clothing used while carrying ship or watch duty on the ship "- reminded the agency.

    "Information about the poor conditions on the ships shape washing clothes is also not true," - said the representative of the Navy.
    "When the ship docked in the base laundry work is carried out on a regular basis, outsourcing companies. While at sea wash uniforms and linen is made with special and household washing machines which are placed on the board, "- he recalled.

    "The author of the article should know that the cleanliness and order on each ship of the Navy, regardless of his rank, historically built into the sacred tradition", - said the representative of the Navy.


    "It can be concluded that the publication of a series of repeated incompetent and misleading publications military topics in this edition of", - said the representative of the Navy

    Why exactly are the completely worthless by today's standards project 133 corvettes in service in the Baltic fleet?

    Why are the similarly worthless Perry's in service around the world?

    It is an ASW patrol boat. It does its job. What would be the point of retiring suddenly the whole fleet?

    Because there is currently nothing better available to replace it.

    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?

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.

    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.

    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.

    CONFirmation on Tomsk and two other subs:

    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.

    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.
