    Project 22160 Patrol Ships to be Equipped with Kamov Ka-29 Assault Transport Helicopters

    Russia’s newest Project 22160 patrol ships will be reinforced with Ka-29 assault/transport helicopters, the newspaper Izvestia reports. Each rotorcraft can be equipped with guided missiles, unguided rockets, bombs and aircraft guns and also carry 16 marines in full kit. Previously, the Ka-29 was stationed only on ground airfields and deployed aboard large landing ships and the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov.

    As Izvestia was told at the Navy General Staff, the decision to deploy the Ka-29 assault/transport helicopters aboard the Project 22160 patrol ships has been made. The necessary changes were made to the construction project: in particular, there will be storage spaces on the ships for air weapons, while the ship’s electronic systems will be able to communicate with the Ka-29’s onboard navigation system. Currently, two types of helicopters are deployed on Russian cruisers, destroyers, frigates and corvettes - Ka-27PL anti-submarine and Ka-27PS search-and-rescue ones. They are not equipped with missiles and guns and cannot carry marines.

    The Project 22160 patrol ships (corvettes), depending on the mission, can be equipped with modules accommodating additional weapons and equipment (radar, electronics, SOF support). These corvettes are planned to be used to protect territorial waters, counter smuggling, combat piracy and provide assistance to those in distress. According to experts, to cope with tasks, the Project 22160 ships need exactly the assault/transport Ka-29s rather than traditional ASW and SAR helicopters.

    "When patrolling Russia’s territorial waters and exclusive economic zone, as well as during counter-piracy operations, the crews of patrol ships will have to inspect various vessels and boats," independent military expert Prokhor Tebin told Izvestia. "For the Ka-27PS and Ka-27PL, it’s quite difficult to cope with such tasks, especially if the enemy provides armed resistance. Unlike the Ka-29, these vehicles do not come equipped with weapons and armor. With the Ka-29, the new patrol ships will be unique platforms for carrying out special and subversive operations, and combating enemy floating equipment in the coastal zone."

    The first Project 22160 patrol ship Vasily Bykov was laid down in 2014. The ships are under construction at the Zelenodolsk Shipyard and Zaliv Shipyard in Kerch, Crimea. A total of six modular patrol ships are to be built. They will be part of the Black Sea Fleet, where a new task force based in Novorossiysk will be formed.

    With a displacement of 1800 tons, the ship is 94 meter long, has a speed is about 30 knots (about 55 km/h) and a cruising range of over 5,000 nautical miles. In addition to the modules, the ship’s organic armament includes a 76-mm automatic gun, a SAM system and cruise missile launchers.

    The Ka-29 helicopter was developed and adopted in the early 1980s. In total, more than 60 vehicles were built. With a flight speed of 235 km/h, the mission radius of the helicopter is about 600 km. The Ka-29 can carry the Ataka anti-tank missiles and the S-8 unguided rocket pods on four underwing hardpoints. By the early 2000s, almost all Ka-29s had been mothballed. However, in 2014, the Navy decided to return these helicopters to service, Izvestia notes: accordingly, their rotor masts and engines were overhauled

    It's basically not armed, but sure as hell looks mean lol1
    RN's River class is now officially jealous and the Germans feel less stupid with their F125s.
    well its a luxury FSB yacht ...

    Neutral Ships like these are a requirement for any navy.

    Are you honestly going to send a dedicated warship to carry out anti piracy operations? that is a waste.

    Ships like these have their place they free up other ships to do the jobs they are designed for and there is nothing wrong with project 22160's.

    Anyone who is saying this never served on a navy vessel. It can have container Kalibers or Sams if it wants, which does the exact same shit has the regular VLS.

    It's unclear yet if it has front mounted VLS, however, again the ship is fine and Russia needs a couple of these in her fleet.

    That's exactly my take on this.

    I remember when frigate Yaroslav Mudriy (one that was drag racing with Burk destroyer couple of times) was sent to Syria.

    They spent several weeks on war deployment and then moved on to do anti-piracy mission off East Africa and after that they sailed to Cuba on diplomatic/friendly visit.

    Total waste. Instead of contributing in a war they were doing crap jobs who knows where.

    22160 has two months endurance. That means that they could have done 6 weeks of anti-piracy job, move on to Cuba for a visit and be back home on a single tank of gas.

    Next one might get something bigger, who knows. First ships of the class in Russia tend to get a lighter gear than the rest.

    First Steregushi has Kashtan, rest of them got Redut.
    First Karakurt has AK-630, others are supposed to get Pantsir.
    Firt Derzkii will have Uran AShM and they already talk about others getting UKSK off the bat.

    First 22160 will have Uran containers and second one is supposed to get Kalibr containers. Maybe it will get extra AA system as well.

    Last few minutes of the program shows glimpses of the first unit (Vassily Bykov) when it was still in the covered construction yard:
    Good views of the bow and 76mm gun.
    No vertical launch clusters up front Sad
    Ship will carry KALIBR in containers at the stern Very Happy
    Stealthiest ship in Russian Navy.
    Long endurance.

    Two of these with a Ka-29, 2 BK-10's (side mounted) and 1 BK-16 carried in the stern hull each, transporting a company of marines between them, could do a lot of interdiction. Apparently the same thing is envisioned for the larger Arctic Patrol Ship 23550.

    I don't think this guy in the video got it right, they were pretty specific about first ship getting Uran containers. Next one gets Kalibrs.

    Also, like I said before, maybe they will start installing AA missiles with the second ship, many lead ships in the class so far had lighter weapons setup installed.

    Where did you get the URAN information from?

    There is this which shows Uran, VDS, medical & a mini-sub as Modules

    And there have been some official statements/statements by officials indicating that later ships would have Kalibr implying the first one(s?) won't.

    But I don't get why there would be some capable of Kalibr & others only Uran if its both by container Module.

    From the vid, very interesting bow on it, seen in the models & CGI previously but not from that angle.

    Honestly, the bow was the most interesting part of the video, I haven't seen it in any pictures so far.
