    A new boat of the Raptor type was launched

    As reported on April 11, 2018, JSC "Leningrad Shipyard Pella" (Otradnoe, Leningrad region), it carried out the launch of the next built for the Russian Navy "patrol boat" project 03160 (code "Raptor") with the building number 714. It is reported that, that after completion of the necessary tests, the boat will be handed over to the State Customer and incorporated into the Baltic Fleet of the Russian Federation.

    This is the first boat of the project 03160, built by the Pella plant in 2018, and the sixth, built under the contract for the construction of eight boats of this type, concluded with the Russian Defense Ministry in May 2016. Earlier, two boats for this contract P-415 and P-425 (building numbers 709 and 711) were launched at Pella in December 2016 and joined the Black Sea Fleet on May 8, 2017, and two more P-413 boats were lowered on December 14, 2016) and P-345 (building number 712, launched on May 30, 2017) were transferred to the Baltic Fleet. Another boat (building number 713) was launched on August 24, 2017 and is planned to be put into the Caspian Flotilla.

    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 for the 2015 program. Of these boats, seven (building numbers from 701 to 705 and from 707 to 708) are officially listed as part of the Russian Navy counter-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 (P-280 and P-281, the corresponding building numbers 705 and 704) are part of the Baltic Fleet, based on Kronstadt, and the remaining five (P-274, P-275, P-276, P-838, P-845) - 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. Formally considered to be part of the Baltic Fleet, the P-344 boat is permanently moored at the DBR-481 berthing berth complex-project 02590 of the National Defense Management Center of the Russian Federation on the Frunzenskaya Embankment of the Moskva River, and, apparently, is used as a personal patrol boat by the Minister of Defense Russia. As a traveling boat for VIP transportation, the above mentioned P-413 boat was completed.

    The first "Grachonok" for Rosgvardia was laid


     On May 15, 2018, the ceremony of laying the first special-purpose boat (anti-sabotage boat) of project 21980 (code "Grachonok") with serial number 01225 for the Federal service of the troops of the National Guard of the Russian Federation (Rosgvardia) took part in the ceremony. Head of the Department for the Protection of Objects in the Waters of the State Directorate for the Protection of Objects of Rosgvardia, Rear Admiral Andrei Shataev.

    Auxilliary vessels, Special-purpose and minor naval ships - Page 9 5460823_800

     At the end of 2017, Rosgvardia signed on a competitive basis with JSC Shipbuilding Plant Vympel a contract worth 4.1 billion rubles for the delivery of four anti-sabotage boats of Project 21980 for the military unit in the Crimea (Sevastopol). The delivery time for ships is November 1, 2019. Officially, the boats are designed "to carry out special tasks in the sphere of activity of the troops of the national guard of the Russian Federation", but were actually ordered by Rosgvardia to protect the Kerch bridge. This will be the first boat of the project 21980 as part of Rosgvardia.

    On the bmpd side, we remind that at present there have been ordered 22 anti-sabotage boats of the project 21980 for the Russian Navy, of which 16 boats have been commissioned since 2010 (eight were built at JSC Zelenodolsky Plant named after AM Gorky in Zelenodolsk, four - to JSC "Shipyard" Vympel "in Rybinsk and JSC" Vostochnaya Verf "in Vladivostok). Of these 16 boats, six are in the Black Sea fleet, four - in the Northern and Pacific fleets, and one each - as part of the Baltic Fleet and the Caspian Flotilla.

    Concern "RUSELPROM" has manufactured power plants for cable ships of Project 15310


    Vessels of project 15310 - "Volga" and "Vyatka" are ocean-class cable-laying machines. They are designed for laying, lifting and repair of submarine fiber-optic cable communication lines, including, for conditions of the Far North. Previously, such vessels were not built in Russia, but were bought abroad. The development and manufacture of ships that will withstand severe arctic conditions will ensure stable communication and electrification of remote and hard-to-reach land areas.

    Auxilliary vessels, Special-purpose and minor naval ships - Page 9 5471854_original

    A series of two cable ships of project 15310 are being built by the order of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. By order of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy of the Russian Federation, the vessels were named "Volga" and "Vyatka". Both vessels were laid on January 6, 2015, the first is scheduled for delivery in 2018, and the second - for 2019.

    The cable ships of Project 15310 have the following characteristics:

    deadweight - about 8000 tons,
    length - about 140 meters,
    width - about 19 meters,
    sediment - about 4 meters,
    Autonomy of the course is about 50 days.

    Vessels are equipped with a set of cable laying equipment that provides automated cable laying from the stern of the vessel and repair of the cable from the nose. There is also a set of equipment that provides and is involved in the process of cable laying in ice conditions. To store the cable to be laid, there are two main cable tents and two backup cables, the total weight of the cable being loaded reaches about 5500 tons.

    The developed integrated system will combine all ship automation, including specialized mechanisms for laying the cable. It will also ensure the navigational safety of the ship. The features of the developed cable ship distinguish it from typical cable ships, in particular those offered by foreign companies, and give it the status of "unparalleled in its class"

    The head hydrographic boat "Georgy Zima" project 23040G

    On May 17, 2018, OAO Nizhny Novgorod Teplokhod Plant (the city of Bor of the Nizhny Novgorod Region) launched the ceremony of the head large hydrographic boat "Georgy Zima", project 23040G (factory number 1201) under construction for the Russian Navy. At the same time, the ceremony of putting out the second boat of this project "Alexander Evlanov" (serial number 1202) and the ceremonial laying of the third and fourth launches of the 23040G project Vladimir Kozitsky and Boris Slobodnik (factory numbers 1203 and 1204) were held from the enterprise's workshop and baptism.

    OJSC "Zavod Nizhegorodskiy Teplokhod" in March 2016 signed a contract with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation for the construction of six large hydro-graphic launches of the project 23040G, with delivery by the end of 2019. The first two boats with factory numbers 1201 and 1202, named "Georgy Zima" and "Alexander Yevlanov" in April 2018, were planted on August 16, 2016. Now the transfer of both boats to the fleet is scheduled for November 2018, they must be included in the Baltic Fleet. It should be noted that, apparently, the construction of boats is delayed in time, as it was initially claimed that the main boat should be handed over to the Navy within a year and a half since the signing of the contract.

    The head boat was named in honor of Georgy Ivanovich Zima, captain of the 1st rank, head of the hydrographic department of the Red Banner Baltic Fleet in the Great Patriotic War.

    The second boat "Alexander Evlanov" (serial number 1202) should be launched at the end of May 2018.

    The project 23040G boat was developed by PKB Petrobalt LLC (St. Petersburg) and is the further development of raiding boats of the complex emergency rescue project 23040 for the Russian Navy Plant "Nizhny Novgorod Ship" for the Russian Navy. The enterprise has already built 16 boats for the Ministry of Defense of the complex rescue project 23040 (factory numbers from 1101 to 1116), surrendered in 2013-2015, and in March 2016 received a contract for the construction of six more boats for the Navy project 23040 (factory numbers from 1117 to 1122), the first two of them were delivered in July 2017, and two more RVK-1239 and RVK-1261 (factory numbers 1119 and 1120) were shipped from the plant also on May 17, 2018.

    The large hydrographic boat of the project 23040G has a displacement of 153.7 tons empty, a total displacement of 192.7 tons, a longest length of 33.04 meters, a width of 6.8 meters and an average draft of 1.6 meters. The boat must be equipped with two diesel engines with a capacity of 248 kW and have a full speed of 12.7 knots.

    The purpose of the boat is high-precision ground-based survey of the bottom relief and survey of navigational hazards at depths up to 400 meters and survey of the bottom relief by single-beam echosounder at depths up to 2000 meters; Maintenance of all types of floating warning signs (hereinafter referred to as "SCR"); setting / shooting of all types of PPZ up to 1.7 tons and length up to 6.5 meters; delivery of personnel, food, spare parts and repair brigades to the shore facilities of navigation equipment; navigation and hydrographic support of rescue and search operations; pilotage and leading of submarines and large-tonnage ships at the points of origin and approaches to them.

    Finally an image of these boats, thanks Armenian thumbsup

    Looking good. Reminds me of what they did with Svetlak-class for Coast Guard.

    They should take any reasonably recent Tarantul they have and convert them into these, strike while the iron is hot.

    I would sell those to india or vietnam so they see the difference with what they already have and try to buy more of them or upgrade existing ones.

    Sell nearly completed ships at a time when their surface Navy is in the middle of crippling vessel shortage?

    Did I miss some fresh news​ since this morning?

    And how are they losing money on these upgraded Tarantuls? They were losing money when they were letting them rot incomplete while in storage at the shipyard.

    They are finally getting the money back.

    If India or Vietnam want them they are free to place an order any day of the week. Sooner they order them sooner construction will start.

    If India or Vietnam want them they are free to place an order any day of the week. Sooner they order them sooner construction will start.
    Any idea who those were those hulls originally ordered by?

    Karakurt are better than this. Don't lose money on them even if they are good.

    Sell nearly completed ships at a time when their surface Navy is in the middle of crippling vessel shortage?

    Did I miss some fresh news​ since this morning?

    They have started karakurt which are fast to be build. Buying less capable ships armed with less capable weapons is loosing money.

    Those missile boats won't make their navy bigger.

    They were ordered for Soviet/Russian Navy but they laid incomplete for years. They decided to complete them in upgraded setup recently.

    Having more ships in Navy makes Navy bigger. Basic logic.

    These ships may be smaller but they are also cheaper.

    Russian Navy is in no position to be picky. They fucked up frigates, corvettes are barely scraping by and as for anything larger forget about it for next several decades at least.

    Missile ships are only thing that gets done. Take what you can. Being whiny and picky is how they got into this mess in the first place.

    I like the stealthy Ak-630 but isn't the plan to armed them with Pantsir-M for "real" AD capabilities.

    I'm guessing that this is an early concept picture of how the ships where meant to look like????

    Any way, if the Panstir-M is now ready, given its installment on the new Karakuts, than that is the right and only choice for any new missile boat.

    Yes, the CGI above is old. The new 1241 will have Pantsir-M and phased antenna array just as 22800's.
