    These patrol ships can be easily developed in versatile multipurpose vessels in the future. There is enough volume and place to integrate additional equipment, sensors and weapons. These small assault craft are fast and even has some armour protection.

    I`ll bet on the improved 22160 as future multipurpose "workhorse" of all four fleets of VMF. Many happy new launchings!

    BRAND NEW: Zelenodolsk built, #ВМФ Project 22160 #ЧФ BSF Black Sea Fleet 184th Novorossiysk Coastal Defense Brigade’s Patrol Ship Division’s Bykov class corvette Dmitry Rogachev transited Bosphorus towards Med for her first Mediterranean deployment.

    Project22160 was delayed when MAN decided not to supply the turbines to Russia due to Crimea related sanctions. Unlike the lead ship Vasily Bykov with 2xMAN diesels, Dmitry Rogachev is powered by 2xKolomna 16D49 diesels

    No official sources yet but spotters say that third ship Pavel Derzhavin has left Zaliv shipyard in Crimea and transited to Novorosiysk or Sevastopol for completion

    Two Gasprom's supply vessels are being escorted to Baltic by OPV Vasily Bykov, they were escorted from Indian Ocean to Med by frigate Admiral Grigorevich which is now returning to Sevastopol

    Next time someone asks what offshore patrol vessels are for you can point out to this little escapade, had there been more Bykovs currently in service this entire job would have been handled by them

    The black sea fleet did not let the Nord stream-2 vessels go alone to the Baltic

    https://www.warandpeace.ru/ru/news/view/149756/

    At the same time as the Gazprom fleet supply vessels that will participate in the completion of Nord stream 2, the Vasily Bykov Corvette is passing through the Mediterranean sea. It also goes to the Baltic sea-to the parade in honor of the Russian Navy Day in St. Petersburg. From the Indian ocean to the Suez canal, the vessels were guided by the frigate Admiral Grigorovich and the tug Professor Nikolai Muru. The Russian military does not leave the fleet that will complete the Baltic gas pipeline unaccompanied in foreign waters.......

    I like these ships, they are decent size, good range, ideal for showing the flag and with Kaliber they have serious striking power wiithout looking too intimidating. Good for anti-piracy. Escorting weapons cargoes to NATO opposed allies and US sanctions busting military escorts. I assume the early ones are 100% diesel. Is the latest one equipped with CODAG yet?

    Vasily Bykov escorting Gasprom vessels through the English Channel

    Like I said before, had there been more Bykovs in service now that huge Udaloi destroyer would have been available for proper military work instead of acting as glorified Coast Guard boat

    Escort service is part of a militaries job... whether pipe layers or tankers or other types around the world... in terms of cost it is probably cheaper to use a big ship like this for escort as it would need rather less support infrastructure...

    For an anti piracy job off the coast of Africa small ships like Bykov etc would be very useful too being less of a burden in logistics...
