    In and of itself no biggie, its just some limited effectiveness missiles on a patrol ship that should never need to fire one.

    I think you rather underestimate the effectiveness of modern MANPADS.

    With the ships radar and onboard EO systems all over the place as well as those mounted on the launcher itself the situational awareness for the ship is actually pretty good, and for late model MANPADS like Igla-S and Verba... these missiles are actually rather capable even against tiny targets because they have proximity fuses and therefore don't need to make actual contact with the target like previous missiles with contact and graze fuses.

    With suitable warning from radar the missile pointed in the correct direction it can be very effective at bringing down all sorts of threats and targets.

    As mentioned it can also launch older cheaper ATGMs like Ataka, but how long before they add missiles like Sosna or Krisantema?

    It is a relatively cheap and simple but also effective system.

    Ataka is just fine as it is.
    This ship is a coastal guard. They will not fight enemy major combattants, but speedboats or small smuggler/terrorist "mosquito fleet" ( Twisted Evil ).
    9M120 is a very universal missile.
    It has a version with F marking, stating to "fugasnaya" - incendiary, with HE/thermobaric warhead, and a 9M220 variant, with extending rod warhead and proximity fuse. It can defeat armored helos, small vessels, and due to proximity fuse, it can be used against fast-moving targets.
    The only disadvantage is the range, which would be below 6km when launched from a ship or another land carrier.
    Inexpensive, fast, and with a variety of warheads. Perfect.
    And sure they can use more sophisticated missiles, if needed and decided ...

    I think you rather underestimate the effectiveness of modern MANPADS.
    Not intended as a slight on the quality of the missile but a statement of its factual limited range compared to serious naval SAMs like 9M96 or Kinzhal/naval Tor

    It carries both Iglas and Ataka and can combine both with one mount.
    I hadn't thought about the surface to surface aspect, yes will give a handy extended range capability (compared to the AK-630) vs small ships/fast boats.
    Even more reason to fill it in through the fleet angel

    The only disadvantage is the range, which would be below 6km when launched from a ship or another land carrier.

    6km is safe from RPG or small arms fire range but not so far away you can't properly identify the target.

    It is accurate enough that its relatively small warhead would be quite effective, and it moves at a much faster pace than western ATGMs of a similar age... most of which were wire draggers.

    Optical defence systems wont stop it and nor will smoke screens if you use radar detection of the target to direct the missile using radio command guidance... which most pirate vessels would not be able to do.

    The new Pine missile has a range of 10km but it being delayed to extend the range to about 20km presumably with a new more powerful rocket booster and improved optics, but it uses laser beam riding guidance which might be effected by sea mist or other atmospheric conditions.

    You have to keep in mind the conditions these systems will be used in... shturm and ataka are cheap off the shelf solutions but later on they can be replaced as they already been replaced on land (Krisantema) and soon in the air (various missiles), they will remain useful because they were rather cheap and produced in enormous numbers.

    Seabed scout: "Vladimir Kozitsky" will help "Varshavyanka" to sink NATO destroyers

    Hydrographic vessels and boats, which are in service with the Russian Navy, are difficult to rank among warships - neither guns, nor missiles and torpedoes, but their importance cannot be underestimated, like any other auxiliary vessels of the fleet. Cruisers, destroyers, and even submarines, and even more so without a hydrograph - as without hands, or rather without eyes that scan the seabed and clearly give out depths and obstacles.

    Now the Black Sea Fleet has received a new large hydrographic boat (BGK) "Vladimir Kozitsky", on which the St. Andrew's flag was solemnly raised in the Novorossiysk naval base.

    Just a week earlier, the Black Sea Fleet received a similar BGK Boris Slobodnik. This testifies to the increased demand for naval hydrographs, including in the Black Sea, which, it would seem, has been studied along and across, but there are still secrets, "black holes" on the seabed here. And this is primarily due to the activity of Russian diesel-electric submarines of the Varshavyanka project in the Black Sea Fleet, which need a detailed location in order to know where to dive and where to swim.

    Actually, initially, hydrographic vessels and boats as part of the Soviet Navy were required for research in the seas and oceans in order to ensure the navigation of submarines in remote areas of the World Ocean. As part of the same Black Sea Fleet, the 422nd division of hydrographic vessels was created (similar units also existed in other fleets), which explored not only the near water area. For example, the hydrographic vessel "Stvor" (built in 1983, Polish shipyard in Gdansk), still in service, with a displacement of 2500 tons, has an autonomy of 40 days and is capable of making a sea voyage with a range of up to 8000 nautical miles.

    On board such a vessel there is everything you need to conduct hydrographic research, which allows you to make route measurements and depth measurements, measure the temperature of the water in different layers (such information is also necessary for the commander of the submarine). There are also two hydrographic survey boats, which are launched for more detailed studies, for example, of the reef zone, when the vessel itself is at anchor. In addition to "Stvor" in the composition of the hydrographic service of the Black Sea Fleet, there was one more similar one - "Donuzlav". Now the detachment of hydrographers was replenished with "Boris Slobodnik" and "Vladimir Kozitsky".

    By the way, both Vladimir Nikolaevich Kozitsky and Slobodnik Boris Davidovich , whose names were given to new large hydrographic boats, were participants in the Great Patriotic War, have military awards and, as it is easy to assume, headed the Hydrographic Service of the Black Sea Fleet in different years. So BGK got decent names.

    The new hydrographic boats of Project 23040 G are, of course, difficult to rank among the ships of the far sea zone. The Russian Navy has already received five such "crooks" for submarines, which left the stocks of the shipyard "Nizhegorodsky Teplokhod".

    BGK were built according to the project 23040 - an emergency rescue boat, which is also called a raid diving boat. Its displacement is about 118 tons and it is not capable of going on a large ocean wave. Nevertheless, the boat found application not only in the Black Sea and Baltic fleets and the Caspian flotilla, but also in the "serious" Northern and Pacific fleets. In the hydrographic version, it is also present in the entire Russian Navy. It's all about the "stuffing" of the hydrograph.

    BGK project 23040 G is intended for high-precision area survey of the daytime relief and survey of navigation hazards at depths of up to 400 meters and bottom relief survey at depths of up to 2000 meters. By the way, the maximum depth of the Black Sea is 2 210 meters, and the maximum diving depth for submarines of the Varshavyanka project, for which the hydrographs will “feel” the bottom, is 300 meters (240 is considered optimal).

    BGK is designed to service all types of floating warning signs (FWS), setting / filming FWS up to 1.7 tons and length up to 6.5 meters. It can be used to deliver personnel, food, spare parts and repair teams to coastal aids to navigation equipment, navigation and hydrographic support of rescue and search operations. The boat is also capable of carrying out pilotage and liquidation of submarines and large-tonnage ships at bases and on approaches to them.

    In recent years, the hydrographic fleet of the Russian Navy has been both updated and replenished with new ships. True, most of the small class. In addition to the mentioned BGK project 23040 G "Boris Slobodnik" and "Vladimir Kozitsky", which are now part of the Black Sea Fleet, two small hydrographic vessels of project 19910, large hydrographic boats of project 19929, large hydrographic boats of project 23370 G. of New Ocean Hydrographs, were also built. as the aforementioned "Stvora" and "Donuzlav" (project 862 / P) in the Black Sea Fleet, they are not currently being produced. And those that are still in service were built in the 1980s in Poland.

    A total of 18 hydrographic vessels of project 862 were built. Now the Russian Navy has eight - three in the Baltic, two each in the Northern and Black Sea fleets and one more in the Pacific. There, by the way, the hydrographic vessel "Marshal Gelovani" took part in a long voyage, which was made by a group of Pacific Fleet ships to the Hawaiian Islands. The participation is understandable - the vessel is equipped with two Don radars, a Rumb radio direction finder, and equipment for bathythermographic, meteorological and chemical-hydrological observations.

    This is the general current trend of the entire Russian Navy - we are building small-class ships, but with great potential. It is likely that project 23040 G also has some exceptional features in the field of hydrography. And if in the same Black Sea it will accurately carry out its tasks and lay underwater routes for the "Varshavyanka", then already in the Mediterranean with its depths up to 5120 meters and storms, as, for example, in January 2020, when the height of the waves of the storm Gloria in the region Valencia was 8 meters, it is simply dangerous for such a BGK to be.

    The Baltic Fleet received the latest high-speed landing craft

    In the city of Primorsk, Kaliningrad Region, a solemn ritual of the first raising of the Russian Navy flag on the latest high-speed landing boats took place.

    According to the information support department of the ZVO press service for the Baltic Fleet, Project 02510 boats of the BK-16 type were built for the Baltic Fleet at the Rybinsk Shipyard. They successfully passed the program of factory running and state tests, during which the crews and the factory team checked all the systems and weapons of the boats.

    After that, the state selection committee signed acts on the acceptance of boats from the manufacturer into the Russian Navy. Landing boats were included in the combat composition of the Baltic Fleet by order of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy.

    The ceremony was attended by representatives of the command and servicemen of the Baltic Fleet. Rear Admiral Oleg Apishev, Deputy Chief of the Main Staff of the Russian Navy, handed over the Andreevskie flags to the boat commanders. Then the flags were raised at the stern of the combat units of the fleet to the sound of the Russian national anthem.

    The purpose of the project 02510 high-speed transport and landing boats is the transfer and landing of troops, their fire support, participation in anti-sabotage operations, the fight against piracy and terrorism. Also BK-16 transport light loads and take part in rescue operations.

    The boats are armed with a remotely controlled combat module developed by the Kalashnikov concern. The module has armor protection against 7.62 caliber bullets of the B-32 type and is gyro-stabilized along two axes, which increases its firing accuracy during rolling.

    NOTE: appears to have been 2 new boats out of a reported order of 10 such craft. The 02510 is a smaller version of the 03160 Raptor.

    Another project 21980 anti-sabotage boat was laid down in Rybinsk

    July 17th, 3:32
    On July 15, 2021, at the Vympel Shipyard JSC (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation JSC) in Rybinsk (Yaroslavl Region), the laying ceremony for the next project 21980 anti-sabotage boat (Grachonok code) with the serial number was held for the Northern Fleet of the Russian Navy. 01229. This is the ninth boat of project 21980 under construction in Rybinsk - earlier the Vympel shipyard built four boats of this type for the Northern Fleet and four for the Federal Service of the National Guard of the Russian Federation (Rosgvardia). Overall, this is the 28th boat of this type.

    Is it confirmed its been completed with the cable laying gear?
    The big delay on these two has been non-delivery of that stuff from external supplier post 2014, last I saw they were talking about completing as supply ships without cable laying gear.

    Specialized logistics vessel for Arctic, makes sense since it's a unique environment



    I am quite curious about that small landing ship that got presented on Naval expo this year, any fresh news on that?

    Thanks... I put Varnish in the translater and came up with Lak but didn't know of any weapon systems or aircraft that would have such an acronym.

    Perhaps it refers to lighter helicopters like the Helix family and perhaps the Ka-226 helicopters and perhaps also potential future helicopter models for the navy like the Minoga...

    Interesting the named the Mi-8 specifically, though there is a custom arctic model being developed... I would have thought they at least would be looking at Mi-38 variants perhaps...

    Delivering supplies to arctic bases sounds a bit broad... it looks like an aircraft carrier, but in use might actually look more like a container ship.

    Mention of carrying Bastion, or truck based Onyx coastal battery systems is interesting as deploying those to arctic bases would be useful work... Twisted Evil

    So it's a landing ship, or just a transport vessel?

    Looks like a transport and patrol vessel.... one motorised rifle brigade, or 30 fuel trucks with fuel.... the bases it supports are likely airfields, and a Bastion unit is a coastal anti ship missile battery... does not sound like the ideal landing ship most of the time... more like something that delivers stuff to bases that might come under attack... or to reinforce one that has come under attack.

    A motor rifle brigade would be no good for taking a hostile beach head, but would be a great way to reinforce and arctic airfield they suspect might come under attack.

    That's a translation error - the actual Russian is ЛAK: [LAK:] followed by the Mi-8 and UAV so that probably refers to the air units

    Thanks... I put Varnish in the translater and came up with Lak but didn't know of any weapon systems or aircraft that would have such an acronym.

    Perhaps it refers to lighter helicopters like the Helix family and perhaps the Ka-226 helicopters and perhaps also potential future helicopter models for the navy like the Minoga...

    Interesting the named the Mi-8 specifically, though there is a custom arctic model being developed... I would have thought they at least would be looking at Mi-38 variants perhaps...


    In online translations you will also get odd words like "furniture" or in this case "varnish" for the same type of word as well - it normally just refers to "equipment".

    The ship itself should have some RORO capability and together with the heavy duty cranes could give it a useful amphibious role as well. I think the general idea here is to have a multi purpose ship in the arctic that can make it's way through heavy ice.

    New tankers and weapons transports for the Russian Navy

    The effectiveness and sustainability of the navy is determined not only by warships and their capabilities. Auxiliary vessels of different classes make a significant contribution to the common cause, incl. tankers and weapons transports. Currently, our country is implementing several projects for the construction of ships of these classes, aimed at restoring and expanding the capabilities of the auxiliary fleet.

    Actual problems

    In general, at the moment, the situation with maritime weapons transports (MTV), as well as medium and small sea tankers (SMT and MMT) gives cause for concern. All the formations of our Navy have a total of several dozen ships of these classes. At the same time, the overwhelming majority of such pennants were built in the days of the USSR and are distinguished by their great age. In addition, not all vessels meet current requirements.

    The preconditions for a change in the situation appeared at the beginning of the last decade, when several new projects of auxiliary vessels were developed. Since 2012, several MTVs and tankers of all new projects have been laid down at various enterprises in the interests of several fleets. The construction of the first ships of new types was completed in the middle of the last decade.

    Due to financial, organizational and other constraints, the construction of auxiliary vessels lags behind the renewal of the combat strength in terms of its pace. At the same time, this program is already yielding noticeable results, and in the foreseeable future the Navy will transfer new ships, which will give well-known advantages, and will also allow starting the decommissioning of long-obsolete hulls.

    Arms transports "20180TV"

    Changes in the MTV field were outlined at the turn of the two thousandth and tenth years. Then, on the basis of the rescue vessel, project 20180, a transport of ice-class weapons "20180TV" was developed. The order for the lead transport of this type, Akademik Kovalev, was issued in September 2011. In December, the Zvezdochka Ship Repair Center (Severodvinsk) laid the keel of this vessel. In July 2014, the new MTV was launched. In December of the following year, the ship entered the Northern Fleet.

    In mid-2015, the second MTV, pr. 20180TV, Akademik Makeev, was laid down. According to various sources, it will be launched in 2021 or later. By 2023-24 the ship can be handed over to the customer. With its help, they plan to strengthen the logistics of the Pacific Fleet. There are no plans for the further construction of MTVs of this type or have not yet been disclosed.

    The armament transport project 20180TV or "20181" is a 108 m long vessel with a displacement of 6300 tons. The hull lines and structure correspond to the operating conditions in the Arctic (Arc5 class). In the volumetric holds of such an MTV, a variety of missile and other naval weapons can be transported. For the loading and transfer of ammunition, there is its own crane with a lifting capacity of 90 tons. The propulsion system with thrusters and propeller-steering columns allows you to maintain position in space and to reload even in the open sea.

    It should be noted that in parallel with the 20180TV transports, oceanographic research vessels of the unified project 20183 are being built. Last year, KSF received the first vessel of this type, Akademik Aleksandrov. In the near future, it is planned to lay another one. The rescue vessel "Zvezdochka" is still the only representative of the base project 20180.

    Small MTV

    In 2013, MTV pr. 20360 “Dubnyak” was added to the Caspian flotilla. Based on the results of the construction and testing of this vessel, the customer decided that the project was unsuccessful. As a result, further construction of Dubnyakov was canceled, and the project was sent for deep modernization. This work took several years, and in March 2016 the Ministry of Defense issued an order for the construction of two vessels of the improved project 20360M.

    In May 2017, the laying of the first such MTV, named Gennady Dmitriev, took place at the Vympel plant in Rybinsk. Construction of the second transport Vladimir Pyalov began in March 2018 at the Nobel Brothers Shipyard in Rybinsk. By now, most of the work on both buildings has been completed. At the same time, as reported, the construction was faced with certain difficulties. However, we manage to cope with them and gain the necessary experience. For example, “Dmitriev” became the largest vessel in the history of “Vympel” and should positively influence further work.

    On June 1 this year, a solemn ceremony of launching MTV Gennady Dmitriev took place at the Vympel plant. Now the ship is being completed at the wall. "Vladimir Pyalov" is still being built on the slipway. The timing of its launching and the exit of two vessels for testing is unknown. However, most of the work has already been completed and it can be expected that two vehicles will be commissioned within the next few years.

    MTV pr. 20360M is a 77 m long vessel with a displacement of 3625 tons with a diesel-electric power plant. The hull is reinforced for operation in the northern regions. Provides volumetric holds and a platform for cargo in containers and without them. Loading is carried out by its own 20-ton crane. Transport "20360M" is intended for the transportation of various weapons of the fleet with unloading in ports or with the transfer to ships and submarines directly at sea.

    Medium sea tankers

    Since the mid-tenths, two types of tankers for several fleets have been under construction. This process began in April 2014, when the laying of the Akademik Pashin medium tanker, pr. 23130, took place at the Nevsky Shipyard. It was launched in May 2016, and sea trials began two years later. In January 2020, the ship entered the Northern Fleet.

    In December 2014, at the Zaliv plant in Kerch, the laying of two tankers of the modified project 23131 took place. Over the next several years, newsthese courts have not been reported. In the fall of 2018, it became known that the plant has completed the formation of the buildings, and the work is proceeding according to the schedule. However, the tankers have not yet been launched, and the timing of their entry into the Black Sea Fleet is unknown.

    Last year, a contract was signed for the next three SMT pr. 23130. The first of them, named "Vasily Nikitin", was laid down in March 2021 at the Nevsky Shipyard. This enterprise has experience in the construction of a modern SMT, and there is every reason to believe that the work on the new building will be completed within a reasonable time frame. In addition, the construction of two other ordered tankers should start in the near future.

    The tanker pr. 23130 has a length of 130 m and a total displacement of 9 thousand tons. The hull of the vessel corresponds to the Arc4 class. The main volumes of the hull are given for tanks for liquid and dry cargo. The tanker is capable of transporting various types of fuels and lubricants, food and other property. There is equipment for the transfer of liquids and goods by the traverse method.

    Small sea tankers

    In 2015, Vostochnaya Verf from the Primorsky Territory received a contract from the Ministry of Defense for the construction of two small sea tankers, project 03182. The first of them, Mikhail Barskov, was laid down at the end of October of the same year. In August 2019, it was launched. The transfer of the Navy is expected in late 2021 or early 2022. In February 2018, construction began on the second MMT, Boris Averkin. In the near future it is planned to launch it. Both vessels are destined for KTOF.

    In 2016, an order for two MMT pr. 03182 for the Black Sea Fleet was issued to the Volga plant (Nizhny Novgorod). On September 1, 2016, the enterprise laid down the keel of the first tanker "Vice-Admiral Paromov". At the end of 2018, it was launched. At the end of last May, this MMT was handed over to the customer. The second tanker has been under construction since March 2017. Its descent has not yet been reported. The terms of commissioning were also not specified.

    The small sea tanker, project 03182, is a 78 m long vessel with a displacement of 3500 tons. It is capable of transporting liquid and other cargoes weighing more than 1300 tons. A crane, a helipad and equipment for transferring cargo are provided. The diesel-electric power plant provides high driving and maneuverability, incl. the possibility of transshipment at sea.

    The problem is in the process of solving


    The well-known events of thirty years ago still have a negative impact on the development of our navy, both its combat component and auxiliary. The process of updating the auxiliary fleet, incl. weapons transports and tankers could not be launched on time, which is why its current state is far from ideal and negatively affects the overall capabilities of the Navy.

    However, in the last decade, the most serious measures have been taken, and the Navy receives new pennants for various purposes. Almost all the main fleets managed to get modern ships, and their construction continues, which makes it possible to count on obtaining all the desired results in the future. Unfortunately, the current construction is faced with certain problems, and this regularly leads to delays and relocations. Nevertheless, the industry is coping with such challenges - and the fleet is carrying out a slow but systematic re-equipment.
