    So now we know the range of Onyx missile .....Mindstorm are you listening Wink

    Russian ships with precision weapons will apply to non-nuclear deterrence


    Russian fleet of strategic non-nuclear deterrence will consist of submarines and surface ships equipped with high-precision weapons, told reporters on Wednesday the Russian Navy Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov.


    Currently in the towing operation adopted headache multipurpose nuclear submarine project 885, code "Ash" - "Severodvinsk" armed strike complexes with cruise missiles "Caliber" and "Onyx", capable of engaging surface targets at a distance of about 500 kilometers.


    "Creating a strategic grouping of non-nuclear deterrence forces in the structure suggests the presence of multipurpose nuclear and non-nuclear (diesel-electric) submarines. Basis grouping of forces strategic non-nuclear deterrence will be Navy ships and submarines equipped with high-precision weapons," - said the commander in chief.


    He made this statement on the occasion of the Russian Federation in the March 19 Day of Submariner.


    Teal said that maintaining the combat potential of submarine forces at the required level provided modernization program multipurpose nuclear submarines III generation, as well as through the construction of a new generation of submarines (Project 677 "Lada").


    "Improving the combat capabilities and multipurpose nuclear submarines, as planned, will be achieved through integration into the arms of their promising robotic systems," - said the admiral.


    Commander also stressed the increase in the intensity of combat service submarines of the Russian Navy in the world ocean: it "guarantees the security of our country."

    Russian Navy Unveils New Class of Submarines

    MOSCOW, March 19 (RIA Novosti) – A prospective series of Russia’s new fifth-generation conventional submarine equipped with an advanced air-independent propulsion system will be designated the Kalina-class, the commander of the country's navy said Wednesday.

    “Russia is currently designing a fifth-generation conventional submarine, dubbed Project Kalina, which will be fitted with an air-independent propulsion (AIP) system,” Adm. Viktor Chirkov said.

    “Our industry promises to develop this AIP system by 2017 and build the first boat fitted with such a system by 2018,” Chirkov said.

    The admiral earlier said that the new AIP system could be initially tested on the only operational Lada-class diesel-electric submarine in service with the navy, the St. Petersburg, which is undergoing sea trials in the Barents Sea after a series of design changes.

    Air-independent power plants offer significant advantages over diesel-electric submarines, which must surface regularly to recharge their batteries, and nuclear submarines, which must continually run noisy pumps to cool their reactors.

    Submarines with such systems can stay submerged for weeks at a time and are already in operation with a number of navies around the world. The United States has so far not employed the technology, however, in favor of the longer endurance and range of nuclear submarines.

    Russian Navy to Deploy Conventional Deterrence Force

    MOSCOW, March 19 (RIA Novosti) – The naval component of Russia’s future strategic non-nuclear deterrence force will consist of warships and submarines armed with high-precision weapons, navy commander Adm. Viktor Chirkov said Wednesday.

    According to Chirkov, the core of the force will comprise new Project 885M Yasen-class and overhauled Project 949A Oscar-II-class nuclear-powered attack submarines, as well as Project 677 Lada-class diesel-electric boats.

    “The enhanced combat capability of multipurpose nuclear-powered and conventional submarines will be achieved through arming these boats with advanced fully-automated weapons systems,” the admiral said.

    The Russian attack submarines are currently armed with a variety of cruise missiles with the range of up to 500 kilometers (over 300 miles), self-guided torpedoes and sea mines.

    Chirkov said that the Russian submarines will increase the scope and frequency of their missions around the globe “to guarantee the country’s security.”

    I would love to see a submarine launched Iskander-M created.

    I would love to see a submarine launched Iskander-M created.

    It would have to have 3-4 times its current range.. having to move your sub to within 400km of a land target to launch would be too dangerous... 1,500km or more would be better.

    Probably technically Lada-M class subs.

    But then they did give two different project numbers to early and late model Kilos so changes in names are not that unusual...

    lol.

    I remember a few years ago, when Alrosa was away for repairs, Kotobod was making a big deal that the only sub in the region was Ukrainian.
    I wonder if this pic will make him kill himself.

    Ukrainian Navy Flagship Hoists Russian Flag

    SEVASTOPOL, March 23 (RIA Novosti) - The Ukrainian Navy flaghsip Slavutich has raised the Russian flag in Sevastopol, local media said Sunday.

    The ship raised the Russian flag after negotiations on Saturday evening, the Kryminform news agency said.

    "There was no storm. The Slavutich hoisted the Russian flag and the crew went ashore," the agency quoted a representative of the Crimean self-defense forces as saying.

    According to the Kryminform news agency, no ships under Ukrainian flags have left in Crimea.

    Ukraine's only submarine, the Zaporizhzhia, also raised the Russian flag on Saturday.

    The Russian Defense Ministry said that about 190 military units in Crimea have hoisted Russian flags instead of Ukrainian and applied to join the Russian armed forces.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on Friday to ratify the treaty providing for the reunification of the Crimean Peninsula with Russia.

    Leaders in the predominantly Russian-ethnic republic refused to recognize the legitimacy of the government in Kiev that came to power amid often violent protests last month, instead seeking reunification with Russia.


    which type of ship is that?

    Very good news.
    I wouldn't pay 400m dollars for such a ship either(only marginal better than Chinese 054A).
    More 22350 and 20385 then.

    Or maybe nothing instead, just a financial saving in the current GPV.

    What is very interesting is what Yantar will make after the last frigate is done.

    It looks like 6 of project 1135 will be build after all but there seemed to be some problems with dates and now that Yantar promised to build all 6 of them by the end of 2016 all is fine  Very Happy

    Well I mean, at least he's not a Russophobe, he just has a certain PoV on weapon characteristics.

    Feel sorry for Ukrainians in general as their country is breaking up, can't be heartening to see one's own fleet defecting or being captured.

    I think that is Yantar trying to desperately keep the contract.
    MOD seems to be going the other way for some time now.

    Ah, ok. Well, hopefully they will then work on the more advance ships to get them out in greater numbers.
