    No way it's for all 4, that would mean they cost less than average yacht.

    Russia faces seas with different operational enviroments, so they develop special ships. No Need for big ships in the Baltic. But the Black Sea Fleet Needs long range ships for operations in the Med.

    and Indian Ocean too (India, Iran or  Africa)

    SURPRISE.

    Look in the background of this picture taken today during the launch of the second pr.22100 coast guard ship.

    It is the DIMITRY ROGACHEV, second unit of the pr. 22160 patrol ships. It is already in the water, it must have been launched discreetly sometime during May 2018.

    Couple of newish pics via Balancer (I'm assuming actually a bit old since it de-permed a while back unless its a repeat de-perm)



    This 3rd started as a weird fisheye lens thing, has been straightened out a bit.


    Edit: improved version of fisheye pic


    and boat launch/recovery testing

    Handsome



    Apparently this is one at Kerch, looks like getting along toward launching, though maybe not that much progress since from recollection they sent modules down river from Zelenodolsk.

    Only very superficially in shape.
    22160 is much bigger, has a significantly different hull, different propulsion, very different armament & completely different tasking.

    More pics!




    Apparently the interior has a lot of void spaces, over on Balancer they're talking about lots of Tambours.
    Seems to be a fairly common thing with modern multi-role, small crew ships.

    I remember the scale models of this class having VLS between main gun and bridge. So did they back away from that? It's weird because this could be a legit corvette instead of an overpowered patrol boat or a light corvette.

    Its an option for the export models, someone at Balancer said they have extra accommodation for marines in that area instead.

    Correct. VLS cells for AA missiles behind main gun are one of options but Navy wanted accommodations for marines to be located there instead. They also insisted on having that armored landing craft in the back.

    They are definitely determined to use these 6 ships for anti-piracy (and other similar) work.

    Images from first serial Pr.22160 ship - "Dmitry Rogachev" -
    Shame they went with the traditional grey colour on this one. I really liked that Titanium bronze on the first ship.

    The first ship looks always blurred on pictures thanks to this colour.

    The 2nd unit of the class DIMITRY ROGACHEV is now being transferred to the Black Sea through the canal system.



    While the first unit VASSILY BYKOV seems to be part of the Navy Day celebrations.

    I prefer grey.  The grey gives her the uniform look one expects for a fleet, while the bronze just makes her look out of place and a little dirty.

    I respectfully disagree. That Titanium Bronze made her look unique and special. She got dirty fast however, that's probably the main reason why they changed it to grey.

    Nice HD video -

    Well, they can paint it purple, if they want to. Important is that the second ship will be in trials soon.

    I also quite liked the bronzey colour.
    Navy grey is more expected though & doesn't make it ugly.

    Interesting its gone downstream with props on the foredeck.
