2 upgraded slava cruisers
3 future russian destroyers
5 gorshkov frigates
12 stereguschy corvettes
4 ivan gren landing ships
30 mine sweepers
20 missile boats
around 30 auxilary vessels
How about some hypersonic plasma-stealth bombers while you're at it
Is russia so low on money that the black sea fleet cant expand to that much ships in 10-15 years?
What a huge expansion program
12 Steregyshy for 1 fleet alone?
There won't be much more for the entire navy by 2020, forget about Black Sea Fleet.
Not to mention, what is the point?
The BSF, btw, is not lacking for ships.
If anything, by already concrete plans, the BSF is seeing a massive increase in submarine strength, and more than 1 to 1 replacement in terms of large surface combatants (if we talk about current fleet, not old Soviet fleet which was ofc bigger.)
Since fall of USSR, aside from old boats which are not operational anyways, the BSF has only had the Alrosa. Now they are laying down 3 project 636 boats for the BSF alone! And supposedly there maybe another trio behind it! So the submarine strength is increased by either 4 or 7 times.
Then we have surface ships. Currently it is composed of the Moskva, the Kerch, Smetlivy and the two frigates - Pitlivy and Ladny. All aside from Moskva will be gone by around 2015 I suspect.
For replacement, by today's plans, we have:
A trio of 11356M frigates (Admiral Grigorovich, Admiral Essen, Admiral Makarov)
At least 1 22350 frigate (Admiral Kasatonov. More units possible.
At least 1 20385 corvette. Very likely to be more units.
There has also been talk of transferring the Neustrashimy and Yaroslav Mudry from the Baltic, though I hope it does not happen, and the plans may have been scrapped.
There are also 21631 missile ships planned.
And don't forget the nearby Capsian Flotilla is well stocked in new vessels (11661 frigates and 21630 gunboats).
If anything the BSF has the most certain future of any fleet.
