Already did: Redut thats not quite big enough to twin or quad-pack the 9M96, can't take antiship missiles.
WTF are you talking about?
Redut is a SAM launch tube system and was never intended to carry anti ship missiles.
The MK-41 only makes sense because ASROC and SM-2 and SM-3 and Tomahawk are fucking huge missiles.
If Redut is a failure because it can't take Onyx then Sea Ram is fucking useless because it can't take ESSM missiles... Redut is for SAMs... Onyx is not a SAM... why can't Sea RAM carry ESSM, Sea RAM and ESSM are both SAMs...
Shtil-1 similar size to Redut but incompatible with the same missiles.
Missiles made by different companies with different search and tracking radar that are not compatible... repeat... why doesn't Sea Ram carry ESSM missiles?
UKSK that can't handle SAMs & possibly too small for upcoming missiles -> UKSK-M.
It was never supposed to carry SAMs... for most of the fleet the vast majority of SAMs will be small and tiny compared with the anti ship and anti sub and land attack missiles the entire fleet will carry.
A corvette wont carry big SAMS... at best it will likely carry 150km range 9M96E missiles... Most importantly because of size it is never going to be able to carry more than perhaps two UKSK launchers so how many SAMs could it possibly carry?
A bigger vessel will need more SAMs and more cruise missiles, but by using a unified launcher you are probably going to end up reducing its cruise missile capacity because extra SAMs will generally be favoured by most captains for most missions.
unlikely, inclined on large ships means no need for Granits anymore.
Slava class ships don't have vertical launch tubes for its primary anti ship missiles... if they are not inclined there they will need a complete redesign of the ship to allow deep deck penetration into places that never had missiles there before... practically a redesign of the ship...
The Kirovs could obviously use them vertically for both replacement of the Granits and the Rifs, but it talks about retrofitting them to shallow displacement vessels.
Small ships like stopgap rocketships? they unlikely will have anything besides Kh-35 anyway. New line Buyan-M or Karakurt (or Bykov russia russia russia ) already carry or can carry UKSK
Did you not even read the article you posted?
It talks about putting the new systems on older vessels during scheduled maintenance... and it mentions light corvettes and very small rocket ships... so we are talking about OSA and similar type vessels with old anti ship missile armament... but also presumably old torpedo boats with the 91ER1 type weapons...
This should be a good export product if it can easily replace old missile setups during maintenance...
UKSK can store Onyx (diameter 0,67m) thus 4 pack of 9M96 could theoretically fit, but as we know it was not designed for. But ok UKSK-M is going to be bigger... if it will be closer to 900mm then 9x9M96 could eventually fit. Nice
Well you could take it further and say if the new tubes are closer to Granit size then three Onyx missiles could be carried per tube as well... and presumably the existing missiles could be carried three to a tube too.
The length would be interesting as well... 8 or 9 or 12 metres length... Kh-35 is about 4.5m long and about 42cm wide so perhaps three per layer with two layers so 6 missiles per tube?
The 9M100 will be short and with a thrust vectoring motor will have minimal fins so you could probably pack a half dozen per layer and possibly 3-4 layers per tube... and they are lock on after launch so vertical launch wont be an issue... 24 missiles per tube?
