    Oh thanks .. my mistake.. I think they are very old ships of 1985 era..

    Hence I think the slanted Anti ship launchers..

    If they were new.. I think.. all  these launchers would been embedded into the deck (vertically placed into deck..)
    Like the design of modern russian Frigates..

    Modern frigates will have multiples of vertical launch tubes embedded into the deck.

    Though I will persist that I saw one link from TR1 utube video ..
    it was a stereguschy(corvette design) I think 2 ships are already commissioned right now..
    they are post 2010 newest Russian designs..but they also have the same (may be smaller) Slanted Anti ship
    launch tubes..

    It is slightly confusing that they are still not totally dependent on Vertical launch tubes.. Neutral 

    On the other side, The new frigate design have VLS UKSK launchers that is standard.. like project 11356..

    Yes the 20380 and 20381 both have anti-ship missiles in slanted canisters, in the middle of the boat. It is a common solution around the world.

    20385 however uses the UKSK VLS modules for all of its anti-ship (and land) missiles.

    It keeps getting weirder!

    By the end of 2015, when Moskva is going off for repairs (taking Ustinov's place @ Zvezdochka in the north), Kerch will be brought back into service and will act as temporary Flagship of the BSF.

    Hmmm. Not out of the ream of possibility, but old man Kerch was slated for decomming soon. Wait and see what the preliminary repairs reveal I guess.

    Thanks for the info.
    So,
    Do we have any info about the upgrades for air defence systems on the berch .
    Those are deadly old may be half a century old designs.
    They use Gecko air defense which is totally obsolete.

    So what are the plans fro replacing the old medium range air defense and also old close range CIWS on Herch.

    I don't think there is any intention to modernize the ship- they just want to give it needed repairs so it can function fully in its current state.
    It has only gone out for parades in the past several years, and they want a 1st rate ship to be the flagship while Moskva is getting its heavy repairs.

    russian navy operations

    Post  Flyingdutchman on Mon May 19, 2014 9:20 pm

    Six Russian warships have arrived in Shanghai’s Wusong navy harbor to prepare for the upcoming Joint Sea-2014 naval drills with China.

    The vessels will join the Chinese navy in joint military exercises that will begin on May 20 in the waters and air space near Shanghai, in the East China Sea. A total of 14 vessels, as well as a helicopter and a special forces team from Russia, will be used in the maneuvers.

    "Different from previous China-Russia sea joint drills, the two sides will mix all the warships together for the first time, and the ships will carry out battle exercises beyond visibility for the first time," said Tian Zhong, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Chinese Navy.

    "And submarines and warships will be arranged to fight automatically for the first time. The drill will help promote joint military capability between the two countries to face new threats and challenges," he said.

    The warships are part of Russia’s Pacific fleet. Led by a missile cruiser, they will practice maneuvers, helicopter deck landings, search and rescue operations and live-fire drills on sea and air targets with the Chinese navy.

    "This is our third joint military drill. We want to improve our cooperation through more exercises," said Alexandr Fedotenkov, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy.

    The upcoming exercise follows similar operations in the Yellow Sea in April 2012 and off Russia’s east coast in July 2013.

    Both sides want to improve practical cooperation and their ability to jointly deal with maritime security threats. Because the joint naval exercises are becoming routine, military exchanges are expected to increase in scope and number.

    It will be the third exercise between the two sides, following similar operations off the coast of Russia’s Far East in July 2013, and the one in the Yellow Sea in April 2012.

    The Chinese military says the drills are regular exercises by China and Russia. Both sides want to improve practical cooperation and their ability to jointly deal with maritime security threats. As the joint naval exercises are becoming a routine, military exchanges are expected to increase in scope and number.

    For anyone interested: I updated my list of the major surface and underwater units of the Russian Navy, and their service status. List includes original commission dates, and I tried to add the most realistic assessment of the ships state currently or before recent repairs. Some ships are listed active while clearly they are currently being repaired; the intention was to differentiate between ships that have been regularly active and in service, and are in the process of being further maintained, and those that have been either in reserve or rusting away for many years. I did not include ballistic missile submarines or amphibious warfare ships at this time, nor any ships smaller than the 20380s. Also I am not including routine small repairs or dock visits in the interest of space. Questions, comments or edits are welcome:

    Photos of the Russian ships (2 destroyers, 1 cruiser, and a large landing ship) arriving in Shanghai for naval exercises.
    Hope we get some great photography like back in Peace Mission 2005....didn't see too many from when a flotilla of Chinese ships came to Vladivostock last year for large maneuvers.

    Yes basically Russian blogs, forums, and several sites.

    Russian navy has different status it places ships, in reserve is a tier above in conservation.
    In reserve generally means of plan to soon or eventually bring ship into service. Conserve is just to preserve the ship for now because no future plans exist. I think there is also a significant difference as to how the crews are maintained on ships in different status.
    However there is overlap. The Lazarev is conserved in terrible shape, while the Severstal and Archangelsk by the look of it are in pretty good stasis. Admiral Harlamov has been in reserve for a while, but the ship has been well maintained and has what seems like a permanent good crew compliment. The Pacific 956s on the other hand are in terrible condition while in reserve.

    Indeed it is a good looking one.

    Strangely, I did not find dimensions. But at 2700 T displacement, it should be around 110 m in length.

    Most interesting is that it took just 2 years from being laid down to launch. It is expected to go into service next year. That is 3 years from laying down to commission: a good rate of building. Zelenodolsk shipyard has got its act together.

    By the way, 5 more have just been ordered recently.

    I cant fathom this. Various Kirovs were slated for scrapping ever since just after their commissioning.
    They're fantastic vessels. The last one was only commissioned in 1998.

    The US re-commissioned their Iowas, many decades after being decomissioned.

    Its not like these mega hulls could be replaced overnight. The Kirovs have a myriad of uses, and in these HIGHLY turbulent times, nothing shouts superpower like a Kirov. THe big hulls could be used for S-400 and 500, for rail gun weapons(space for the electrical supply). Theyre excellent flag fliers, anti-piracy ships, dont require fuel(nuclear!), could be excellent test vessels and much much more.

    Why not just retain the OPTION of recommissioning the oldest of the Kirovs. I thought the Navy wanted large numbers of indiv classes, to economise on maintenance?!
    Penny wise and pound foolish as we say in England.
    Would be very sad to lose a Kirov for the price of some scrap steel.

    It is in much worse state than the Nakhimov, including some serious propulsion issues back from Soviet times.
    The budget can only support so many mega-cruisers. The ship is just rusting away, taking up space and manpower.

    By the time Russia can afford 4 of those ships, they will be ancient. And even then, you will have to compromise on other assets.

    The Leader project will be able to do most of the roles of an even upgraded Kirov anwyays.

    Anti-piracy? Man, why not send a whole battlegroup if you don't care about the cost Very Happy ?

    Well that's kinda unfortunate for Kirov.. Though yes it's not economic to bring her back on duty.


    Anyway a question, Is P-885 Yasen will going to replace all Bars, Kondor, Barrakuda and Shchuka as well as Antey/Atlant in service ? Thus making future Submarine force "Multimission" In nature similar as US Navy's Virginia class ?

    Oh about the Antey/Atlant. recently got (yay) Norman Polmar's "Cold War Submarine : Design and Construction of US and Soviet Submarine" It mentioned that Rubin design bureau are working on 4th Generation SSGN to replace Antey/Atlant.. However i heard no news of it in the net.. So i wonder if there's anything i miss.

    The thing is they can't keep everything from the Soviet period... they simply don't need it really at the moment.

    Using 2 Kirov class ships plus 3-4 Slava class vessels with moderate upgrades would be plenty for most European countries.

    New upgrades should allow a simplification of the propulsion and weapons and systems to reduce crew requirements and make the vessel more standardised with the rest of the fleet which should also reduce operational costs.

    But thats irrelevant.
    You ignore ,that Russia if ever have a conflict with any european nation it will be a conflict with NATO..
    Or at least its major active powers..and black sea and northern sea members. So if France only have 5 warship.. so what?
    None of those European nations you think will be alone in a maritime conflict and Russia will be alone.. unless the conflict is in
    the  CHINA SEA..Oh but Russia have nukes.. you will say..  yes so they too..Still conventional power is truly important .
