    Some data on Raptor boats construction for Russian Navy:

    This is the first boat of the project 03160, built by the Pella plant in 2017, and the fourth, built under a new contract for the Construction of eight boats of this type, concluded with the Russian Defense Ministry in May 2016.
    Earlier, two boats of this contract joined the Black Sea Fleet on May 8, 2017, and another boat was transferred to the Baltic Fleet.

    Earlier, under the previous contract in 2014, the Pella plant passed to the Ministry of Defense of Russia eight project 03160 vessels during 2015 - four planned for the 2014 program and four under the 2015 program. Of these boats, seven are officially listed as part of the Russian Navy as anti-sabotage boats. In fact, according to known data, these boats are used in fleets as part of naval reconnaissance points for special purposes. Of these, two boats are part of the Baltic Fleet, based on Kronstadt, and the remaining five are part of the Black Sea Fleet, based on Novorossiysk and Sevastopol.

    Another cutter of project 03160 P-344 with building number 706, commissioned in August 2015, was built in the form of a communications boat - in fact, as a traveling boat for VIP transport.

    The head boat (prototype) of the RM-15 project 03160 Raptor, designed and built by Pella on the instructions of the Russian Navy, was launched at the plant on August 15, 2013 and handed over to the Navy in 2014, also now being part of the Black Sea Fleet. Thus, "Pella" has built a total of 13 boats project 03160.

    So in total we have
    BLS fleet: 8 boats
    BAL fleet: 4 boats + 1 boat for VIP transport

    So a copie of the swedish CB90 fast assault ship.

    The medium marine tanker "Academician Pashin" in the completion

    The photo of the head intermediate naval tanker of the project 23130 "Academician Pashin", posted at the website of forums.airbase.ru, made at the beginning of June 2017, which is being completed for the Navy of Russia at the Nevsky Shipbuilding and Shiprepairing Plant LLC (Shlisselburg, Leningrad region ).

    Auxilliary vessels, Special-purpose and minor naval ships - Page 6 4355355_original

    LLC "Nevsky Shipbuilding and Shiprepair Plant" received a contract of the Russian Defense Ministry worth 2.978 billion rubles for the construction of the main middle sea tanker of Project 23130 on November 1, 2013. The tanker is designed for the Northern Fleet. The ceremony of laying the tanker "Academician Pashin" (plant number 901) under this contract was made at the plant on April 26, 2014. The tanker was withdrawn from the plant's shed on March 18, 2016 and launched on May 26, 2016.

    It should be noted that according to the terms of the contract, the ship was to be launched in July 2015, and the end of the factory running and state tests was scheduled for October 2016, the vessel was to be delivered to the customer by November 25, 2016. Thus, the construction of the tanker is delayed by more than a year from the contractual terms.

    The then commander-in-chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral V.V., was present at the ceremony of laying the tanker "Academician Pashin" in April 2014. Chirkov stated that it is intended for the Navy to build four such vessels.

    Project 23130 is developed on a competitive basis by ZAO Spetssudoproekt. The 9000 dwt tanker has the longest length of 130 m, a width of 21.5 m, a draft of 7 m, a cruising range of up to 8,000 miles, autonomy of 60 days, and a crew of 24 people. The speed of the ship in full load at a maximum draft of 16 knots. It was planned to use imported engines as the main diesel power plant.

    Boat Inspector Mk 2 from the minesweeper "Alexander Obukhov"

    An interesting photo from Baltiysk is the unmanned anti-mine boat Inspektor Mk 2 of the French company ECA Group at the stern of the head minesweeper of the project 12700 "Alexander Obukhov", for the complex of mine weapons which the boat was purchased.

    Auxilliary vessels, Special-purpose and minor naval ships - Page 6 4365126_original

    According to the known data, the Russian Navy became the first customer of the BEC of the Inspector Mk 2 family, which was first demonstrated by the ESA in 2008. The contract for the purchase of four BECs by Inspector Mk 2 and mine action vehicles of the ESA group was concluded, according to the known information, by the Russian company Prominvest (part of Rostekh State Corporation) in January 2014. Despite the EU sanctions, the Russian Navy in autumn 2015 received the first two BEC Inspector Mk 2 under this contract with the ESA, although further deliveries of two more boats were apparently suspended.

    An unmanned boat Inspector Mk 2 is a mine-control system controlled from a carrier vehicle. The 9-meter boat is equipped with an active GAS mine guard on the telescoping mast in the bow (to search for mines at a depth of 10 m, including anchors), towed by the TOWSCA side-scan (for searching for mines at depths of 10 to 100 m, including objects on the bottom) And various remote-controlled underwater vehicles for the search and destruction of mines. BEC can effectively operate at a distance of up to 10 km from the carrier vehicle. However, it is not clear whether the boats delivered to Russia are equipped with a full set of mine funds.

    It should be noted that in view of the considerable size, the BEC Inspector Mk 2 can not be lifted directly to the board of the mine-sweeper of the project 12700.

    In July 2016, ECA signed a contract worth 10 million euros with an unnamed customer for the supply of three BECs Inspector Mk 2.

    It was reported that three under construction of the 12700 serial mine sweeper will equip the Russian tankless boats with the development of the Typhoon consortium (PKF Mnev & K LLC).

    Ilya Muromets Icebreaker to Join Russian Navy Arctic Force by Year End

    The Project 21180 icebreaker Ilya Muromets will join the Russian Navy before the end of this year, the Russian Defense Ministry reported.

    Auxilliary vessels, Special-purpose and minor naval ships - Page 6 Russian_Navy_icebreaker_Ilya_Muromets_project_21180
    The First Project 21180 Icebreaker Ilya Muromets. Picture: JSC Admiralty Shipyard

    "The icebreaker Ilya Muromets is scheduled to start the builders sea trials in mid- July of this year. It will join the Navy before the end of 2017 after all testing stages are completed," the report said.

    Currently, the icebreaker is completing its mooring tests at the shipyard’s quay. On-board equipment is being adjusted and the sheeting of rooms is being finished on the icebreaker.

    The vessel under construction for the Northern Fleet was laid on April 23, 2015. This is the first icebreaker over the past 45 years, which is being built exclusively for the Navy’s needs.

    Earlier, Aleksei Rakhmanov, Head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, said that in the future, a series of such icebreakers could be built for the Arctic in the framework of the auxiliary fleet upgrading program. He explained that the Project 21180 icebreaker is intended, in particular, for basing and deploying naval forces in ice conditions, as well as towing warships. The decision to build new icebreakers for the Russian Navy will be made based on the results of the operation of the lead vessel.

    The displacement of the Muromets will be 6,000 tons. Its design incorporates new electric propulsion principles and a modern power plant. It is assumed that the crew will consist of 32 people, while the endurance of the ship will reach 60 days and the range will be as long as 12,000 miles. The icebreaker will be able to overcome the 80-cm-thick ice field.

    First Project 22220 Nuclear Icebreaker Arctika for Russian Navy to be Commissioned in June 2019

    The Arctika lead icebreaker of project 22220 will be commissioned in June 2019. Another two vessels will follow in 2020 and 2021, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said at a meeting of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev with his deputies.

    "We plan to have the lead Arctika icebreaker commissioned in June 2019. Then the nuclear Ural icebreaker is to follow in November 2020 and the nuclear Sibir icebreaker in November 2021," he said.

    As Rosatom nuclear agency extended the life cycle of existing nuclear icebreakers giving the shipyards enough time to renew the fleet, he added.

    Factory trials of the first Arctika turbine are beginning at the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg. It will take close to one month to test each turbine.

    They are produced by the Kirov Plant. Previously Ukraine engaged in their production but in 2014 it became necessary to replace the imports. The enterprise invested 900 million rubles and the remaining funds were provided by the Industry Support Fund. Each icebreaker will have two turbines. The first one will be ready in July and the second one in October, Rogozin said.

    The nuclear icebreaker of project 22220 has a displacement of 33450 tons and a length of 173.3 meters. The two-unit power plant with RITM-200 reactors has a capacity of 175 MW. The speed is 23 knots. At uninterrupted motion the vessel can break 2.8-meter thick ice. The crew is 74 men.

    Navy Recognition Comments
    The three icebreakers were originally planned to be delivered to the customer in 2017, 2019 and 2020, respectively. The three icebreakers are currently under construction at the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg on order of Rosatomflot Company, part of Russia’s Rosatom Corporation. The Project 22220 lead icebreaker Arktika was laid down at the Baltic Shipyard in November 2013. The project is estimated at 122 billion rubles ($1.9 billion).

    The icebreaker incorporates technologies that were not used in the nuclear-powered fleet earlier. In particular, the ship’s double draught with a controlled submersion depth will allow it to lead a group of vessels in ice-covered areas and river outlets and its new nuclear reactor will make it possible to navigate for more than six months without calling at ports for recharging.

    The icebreaker is planned to be able to navigate about seven years without recharging. The icebreaker will receive two water desalination systems able to process 70 tons of water each. As of today, the Baltic Shipyard has more than 10,000 tons of assembled metal structures for the future icebreaker in its slipway.

    Project 22220 Nuclear-powered Icebreakers are set to become the largest and most powerful icebreakers in the world. Their length is 173.3 meters with a width of 34 meters and draft of 10.5 meters. Projected tonnage is 33,540 tons. It will be fitted with two RITM-200 pressurized water reactors for a capacity of 175 MW.

    It looks like that Russian Navy won't run out of icebreakers for a while Very Happy


    Rosatom and Russian Shipyards Welcome Project 10510 Leader Icebreaker Project

    Shipyards and Rosatom are optimistic about the program to create nuclear icebreaker of project 10510 with a capacity of 120 MW, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said at a meeting of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev with his deputies.

    Auxilliary vessels, Special-purpose and minor naval ships - Page 6 Project_10510_Leader_class
    Project 10510 Leader class icebreaker

    "I would like to report that shipbuilders, Rosatom and suppliers are optimistic about the Leader nuclear icebreaker of 120 MW. There is documentation and industrial cooperation has been technically streamlined. If the government decides in several years about its construction the technical basis is already emerging," he said.

    The creation of the Leader icebreaker can ensure all-season and all-weather operations at the Northern Sea Route both in the western and eastern parts to transport hydrocarbons round-the-year, he added.

    "One Leader icebreaker is not a solution, we need a series. The 300-meter giant Leader, which is about 50 meters wide, will have commercial economic speed in any ice in the Arctic, and thus will solve the task of year-round and transit navigation along the entire Northern Sea Route and of delivering gas and gas condensate to Southeast Asia and the Pacific Rim," , Director for shipping of the Atomflot operator Andrei Smirnov said.

    "Our specialists have calculated there should be at least three icebreakers like Leader," he added.

    It was reported that the Iceberg Design Bureau is developing the most powerful nuclear icebreaker in the world of project 10510 with a 120MW capacity. It can break up ice with maximum thickness of 4.3 meters and lead cargo vessels at a speed of 11 knots in two-meter thick ice thus ensuring efficient navigation along the Northern Sea Route. The Leader can develop the route into a permanently operating waterway as it would provide year-round support to vessels on schedule regardless of weather conditions and ice situation. The icebreaker would be crucial for transporting hydrocarbons from Yamal deposits to Asian and Pacific Rim countries.

    Can the nanuchka class corvettes be deployed in open seas like sea of japan and sea of okhost etc ?
    Or are they deployed only close to rivers and very shallow waters ?

    I don't think that this is the appropriate thread for discussing this but...

    No, not really, or maybe in the Sea of Okhotsk.

    Corvettes are made to fight in littoral waters, as they have limited seagoing capabilities and short to medium range weapons. On the other hand, Nanuchka-class corvettes are becoming obsolete, and they will likely to be replaced with Karakurt-class ones.

    Thanks for the article, I was wondering what are those two large ships in the middle. We focus a lot on the warships here but we forget on all the research/scientific/auxiliary/industrial ships being build.

    Also, it's great that the Black sea shipyards are getting to business, hopefully thing will only get better from this point on.

    Boat "Seeker" on tests in Kronstadt

    Published in the web resource forums.airbase.ru made in Kronstadt photos of the prototype of a robotic multi-functional motor boat "Iskatel", developing the St. Petersburg JSC "Scientific and Production Enterprise" Aviation and Marine Electronics "(NPP AME). The motorboat is offered as a domestic platform for a mine-free mine protection complex instead of unmanned surface vehicle (USV) Inspector Mk 2 boats of the French company ECA Group.

    Auxilliary vessels, Special-purpose and minor naval ships - Page 6 4451348_original

    As already reported by our blog, the prototype of an unscrewed boat "Seeker" passed the first sea trials in 2016 and was demonstrated at the 8th International Naval Salon IMDS-2017 held in St. Petersburg from June 28 to July 2, 2017. The Seeker boat has smaller dimensions than the ECA Inspector Mk 2 - the displacement of the Seeker is 5.4 tons, the length is 8.4 meters, the width is 3 meters, and the height is 3.4 meters. The payload is 500-600 kilograms. The boat is equipped with two diesel engines with a capacity of 220 hp, a full speed of 25 knots. Autonomy up to 7 days.

    The complex detects and mounts above-water objects at a range of 5 km with the help of a 24-hour optic-electronic surveillance system remotely controlled by the operator. In addition, the possibility of installing additional sonar equipment is provided on board. The hull was created by the Neptun company, radio communications lines were developed in Rybinsk Rybinsk Design Bureau Luch, directly in the NPP AME, they were engaged in creating electronic equipment and integrating the system as a whole.

    What's the point in making unmmanned patrol boat ? Patroling means checking. Most of the time you control fishers so you need manned crew to check documents.

    I suspect that the emphasis is on the 'demining' part of the description.

    Patrolling for mines and demining. This is a "robot" boat to be used by the new 12700 minesweepers replacing the French model they presently use.

    Patrolling for mines and demining. This is a "robot" boat to be used by the new 12700 minesweepers replacing the French model they presently use.


    So it carried by a mother ship. And how does it work for demining ? Does it carry some mini torpedo or depth charges ?

    If you read post number 134 on the previous page by George you would see a description of the french model this model is replacing.

    It is not a patrol vessel, it is a demining robot.

    Thanks I didn't saw it. So it's remote controled and can operate 10km from the mother ship.

    Most mine hunting ships are not metal... they are often GRP so having the mines explode a long way away from your boat is a good thing.. Smile

    BTW for those not familiar, GRP is glass reinforced plastic... a sheet of glass is very fragile, but form it into fine strands and it becomes a very strong light material like glass fibre.

    11 BK-10's and 6 Bk-16's under construction for the Navy. Another BK-16 has already been delivered for trials. These are fast assault craft for inshore patrols and assault landings. The number represents the number of combat troops each can carry. They can be carried by larger ships such as the 22160 and 23550 patrol ships. The BK-16 is a smaller version of the Raptor 03160.
