    How quiet is the Oscar compared to the Akula and the LA?

    Onix! In greater numbers than Granit...I am curious when the domestic range numbers come out, we know it is greater than 300km, but by how much...

    Come to think of it, this might either make Zvezda or they will completely miss project dates.

    Zvezdochka has been the one doing repairs on Anteiis, and I expected them to get the order for 2nd round of modernization.
    Zvezda will very much benefit from the cash injection, but they have had all sorts of issues with much simpler state orders.

    Onyx in its domestic form is supposed to have a similar range to the missile it is replacing... ie Granit.

    Granit has a range of 500km and I have seen estimates of onyx's range of between 500km and 700km depending on the flight profile and speed... remember the Onyx uses a ramjet, while Granit uses a turbojet. This means that both missiles can fly high but not at top speed for the first part of the flight to extend range and then accelerate on full throttle as they approach the target (and their fuel load is lighter).

    All in all, Russia will end up with 8 Oscar class and few more of the Oscar class are unfinished and might add to numbers even further.

    Belgorod will be completed, but not as a combat sub. We can forget about the other unfinished hulks, they are not Belgorod shape anyways.

    I am curious how many boats the MOD ends up modernizing with new armament in the end. I suspect it won't be the entire fleet, but at least 5 boats.
    With dual purpose 885s entering service (eventually) and modernized 971s getting Kalibr there won't be as much pressure to save the entire dedicated SSGN fleet.

    At the end of the day the limiting factor will be finances as always, and they will have to do some juggling between what to modernize, more 971s or 949s. Entire fleets of both being modernized is pretty much impossible IMO.

    I know but it would be interesting if Russia could get a similar contract with other two unfinished Oscar class like it had with India and Akula sub as they are powerful subs or perhaps 

    they may decide to finish the boats in case situation with Yassen class continues to drag on.

    Im counting on 8 of them  Very Happy  by 2020 and latter who knows.

    700 bin $ is a lot of money. Economy will play its part but still Russian military has set very ambitious goals ahead of them. 


    Anyway: Another powerful unit will soon join in the Russian Navy

    Tomsk is in the Pacific, at Zvezda...which of course opens up questions on whether it will be done in time or miss it like always.

    Zvezodochka will be working on the Orel after the Smolensk (Orel has already arrived @ the yard). This will be the yard's third 949A, Voronezh being the 1st; so I think their deadlines are pretty much solid at this point.

    Perfectly smooth skin is not so important for hydrodynamics (moving through water).

    In fact what the skin is made of is rather more important to a sub and in most cases a Russian or Soviet sub has a thick rubberised material on its surface designed to absorb noise to reduce its ability to reflect a sonar ping and to reduce radiated noise from inside the vessel.
