    Russian shipbuilders to lay keel of six warships and submarines on August 9-10 — source

    The shipyards of Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation will lay down six warships and submarines on August 9-10, a source in the domestic shipbuilding industry told TASS on Friday.

    2x Project 955A Borei-A-class strategic missile subnarines, at the Sevmash Shipyard
    2x Project 20380 corvettes at the Amur Shipbuilding Plant in the Russian Far East
    2x Project 636.3 submarines at the Admiralty Shipyard in St. Petersburg

    The Sevmash Shipyard will lay the keel of the strategic nuclear-powered underwater cruisers Dmitry Donskoi and Knyaz Potyomkin, the Admiralty Shipyard will lay down the submarines Mozhaisk and Yakutsk (the fifth and sixth subs in a series of six Project 636.3 diesel-electric submarines for the Russian Pacific Fleet) while the corvettes that will be laid down at the Amur Shipbuilding Plant have been named the Grozny and Buiniy

    I haven't read anything, they seem to be deciding what to do. They have the 22350M above and the improved 20380/20385 below. The logical thing would be to produce basically all of them (or maybe unify the 20380 and 20385), but I don't know if stopping the 22350 makes sense. Maybe they see the 20380/85 capable enough in the near sea zone and the 22350 too small to operate confidently at a global scale, who knows.

    Aren't the shipyards full which is why no new order have been issued yet (and the fact that they may come with a new design by then) ?

    22350 can operate confidently far away but never alone. No frigate neither destroyer or cruiser actually can be safe alone far away from home waters. 22350 is meant to be build in big numbers contrary to potential cruisers.

    Not building frigates because you have good corvettes and some fanart design of mighty 300m cruisers is stupid.

    Precisely

    They finally cracked construction of large surface combatant and then they immediately went back to being retards

    Russia will most likely sign more contracts for the 22350's, 8 frigates clearly won't be enough for the navy and most situations aren't going to require a Super Gorshkov with 64 Zircons.

    The Kerch-based Zaliv Shipyard, which constructs the newest Project 23900 landing helicopter dock (LHD), will be upgraded, Ak Bars Shipbuilding Corporation Director General Renat Mistakhov told the TASS news agency.

    “[We have designed] a roadmap, which covers all aspects of the shipyard manufacturing facilities’ reparation for modernization. [We have drafted] a list of equipment required for the upgrade of the enterprise and its capacities to maintain timely implementation of orders.”

    Ak Bars Shipbuilding Corporation Director General Renat Mistakhov
    According to him, the steel-cutting capabilities of the shipyards will be dramatically reinforced, once the modernization processes are finished.

    “[The shipyard’s] plan for 2020-2027 with short-, medium-, and long-term works has been shaped.”

    Ak Bars Shipbuilding Corporation Director General Renat Mistakhov

    Production facilities of Shipyard «Zaliv» include:


    • a graving dock, providing for construction of vessels up to 340 m long, 54 m beam and launching weight up to 50000 t;
    • two horizontal building berths, 400 m long each, providing for construction of vessels up to 120 m long, 22 m
      beam and launching weight up to 2500 t for launching by a side launch;
    • two deep water outfitting quays, 278 m and 240 m long respectively with two cranes 32 t capacity and one crane 50 t capacity;
    • a quay, 186 m long for unloading of metal with a crane, 80 t capacity;
    • all facilities, necessary for ships construction and repair;
    • warehouses to store materials, equipment and fuels; a port, providing for handling of general cargoes and a customs entry point for ships;
      bonded warehouse and point of inspection for trucks transporting goods from abroad.

    Overtaking Europe

    The loading of Russian military shipbuilding has now reached a higher level than that of all European shipyards combined

    - says the publication.

    As explained, 5 nuclear submarines (1 Astute and 4 Suffren), 4 conventional submarines (A26 and S81), 1 helicopter carrier Trieste, 12 frigates (types T26, FREMM, PPA) and 5 corvettes are being built in Europe at the same time. In the meantime, Russia is creating 5 nuclear submarines "Borey-A" and "Yasen-M", 5 diesel-electric submarines 636.6, 2 BDK and UDC, 6 frigates "Admiral Gorshkov", 10 corvettes 20380/5/6, 3 light corvettes [MRK ] "Buyan-M", 8 light corvettes [MRK] "Karakurt" and 3 minesweepers "Alexandrite".

    In other words, for the first time in 30 years, Russian military shipbuilding surpasses all of Europe

    And these are just military shipyards.  When the civilian production is compared, Europe will probably be even worse.  Considering orders from Zviezda shipyard etc?  It is particularly impressive that Russia is economically and demographically much smaller than the EU. Shocked
    This comparison still lacks the project 0985 nuclear submarine, two large patrol ships under construction project 23550, conventional class 677 submarine, project 22160.

    Glad to hear this but you have to consider how a lot of europeans building programs are already concluded or near to it while many new ones are still to be started or are at their infancy.
    Impressive however that the biggest EU country, Germany is actually producing nothing.
    UK and France as usual throw their own money on status only vessels and neglect the surface fleet and just Italy has get to be on a roll of continue naval production.

    Well, not exactly, mate :-)
    They are constructing the F125 frigate series, with the 4th and last one still pending, and the 3rd delivered a few months ago only.
    Plus there are some 212 subs in the pipeline, both in Germany and Italy. Actually, you will get yours first, as the German ones are just signed along with Norway.

    It is 70 ships, including 15 with nuclear propulsion.
    That's mindblowing for a country with the military budget on par with the UK ...
    That is a real scale of western corruption.

    Once the ships have fired all their missiles (cruise, SAMs) do they send in more missiles by air or do the ships return to the harbour and re load?

    You can't reload by air.

    They go back to a friendly base to reload or if they have a special ships with ammunition and a crane that can theorically be done at sea.

    It is mostly done at sea, by dedicated replenishment ships. They store both fuel and ammo in most cases, but some models are single role.

    Here you have some newest Russian project 03182 :

    Do you know which ships are used in russian/soviet navies for weapon replenishement ? I never saw pictures of such operations being done at sea.

    The last Soviet ship they operate is a Berezina class If I'm not mistaken.
    But they are running an extensive replacement program at the moment, with several ships already ordered/in line, and some different classes projected.

    Yep, and morons in Western MSM still insist of repeating the stupid shibboleth that Russia has an economy smaller than Italy... yet they can build a military such as theirs (including a second-to-none strategic nuclear deterrent) on just 4.3% of GDP.  Retards...  Razz

    Don't worry, all of them will be.
    Submarine construction runs amazingly smooth, if we compare that to any other serious program of the opponents, that turns to a saga itself ...
    They resolved issues with engines, mostly. All new weapon systems seem to work as planned.
    I would say, it is a different story, even if you compare it with the highest peak in Soviet marine construction, that would be in the early 80s.
    How long new ships were running with non-operational systems? Wasn't that 5-year delay, to solve the interfering radars on 956s?
    They run a stable business now, only gaining momentum.
