    Two Russian Advanced Nuclear Submarines to Be Laid Down in 2016

    "The sixth submarine of the Project 855 [Yasen-class] will be laid at down at [Russia’s shipbuilding company] Sevmash in December 2016. A new Borey-class submarine will be laid down in July," the spokesman told RIA Novosti.

    Plz do not give the arseoles moscotimes extra clicks, thats why I posted the article in full here. There is another article w.r.t to two years of "annexation" of Crimea.
    http://www.themoscowtimes.com/business/article/black-sea-rising-rebirth-of-a-russian-fleet/562831.html

    See the use of words "annex" while completely censoring when Crimea was given to Ukraine or highlighting long-range of Kaliber cruise missile as if prior to which Russia never had long-rangers. This is as much fault of anti-Russian propagandist like him as much as it is the fault of so-called international (English) Russian media who fail to provide and promote on a wider spectrum the correct narratives w.r.t Russia.

    Black Sea Rising: Rebirth of a Russian Fleet
    By Matthew Bodner
    Mar. 17 2016
    Russian Navy: Status & News #2 - Page 33 Russia-navy-fleet1
    Russian warships are seen during a naval parade rehearsal in the Crimean port of Sevastopol.

    From a military point of view, Russia's ground operation to annex Crimea in 2014 was an exceptionally clean affair, and gave ample opportunity to demonstrate the fruits of Moscow's military modernization efforts. But for Russia's famed Black Sea Fleet, the most tactically relevant action it could take was to deny Ukrainian ships from setting to sea by scuttling one of its oldest and rustiest cruisers in the mouth of a channel.

    Despite efforts since 2008 to upgrade Russia's aging Soviet-built military, the Black Sea Fleet in 2014 was a decrepit shell of the once great outfit. Under agreement, independent Ukraine allowed Russia to keep ships in Crimea after the fall of the Soviet Union, but it largely prevented additional Russian vessels from being added. Much of that fleet spent 25 years rusting away at their moorings, and many doubted the fleet was capable of combat.

    This led to military stagnation in Crimea, but the arrangement was tolerated in Moscow for years. This changed with the rise of the Maidan protest movement in Kiev. As a pro-Western government formed there, the Kremlin could no longer be sure its basing agreements in Crimea would be honored.

    In the two years since annexation, the fleet's fortune and capabilities have profoundly changed. Moscow has wasted little time in diverting resources to rejuvenating the fleet, adding around a dozen combat vessels since 2014, and Sevastopol is now a major hub of Russian military and geopolitical power projection.
    Russian Navy: Status & News #2 - Page 33 Russia%20air%20defense

    Strategic Pillar

    The ultimate decision to annex Crimea from Ukraine may have been a largely emotional and political one, but the strategic significance of the Black Sea Fleet's Sevastopol headquarters provided Russian decision makers with a concrete rationale to seize the peninsula. Whoever controls Crimea can easily assert a dominant position across the entire Black Sea region, which is home to several NATO member states and former Soviet republics that Moscow hopes to keep in its orbit.

    "If you look at a map, you can see that Crimea sits right there in the middle of the Black Sea," says Dr. Dmitry Gorenburg, an expert on the Russian navy at the Virginia-based CNA think tank. "From Sevastopol, the Russian navy can pretty much control all approaches and dominate the region vis-a-vis Turkey."

    This line of thinking was enshrined in the latest draft of Russia's national naval doctrine, released on July 2015. The document envisions a reinvigorated presence in the Black Sea, allowing Russian ships to reestablish lost footholds in the southern Atlantic, the Mediterranean Sea, and through the Suez Canal. In the document, Russia says its aim is to wield influence abroad and resist NATO encroachment.

    These ambitions were enabled largely by the annexation of Crimea. Although Russia was developing an alternate naval facility at its Black Sea coastal city of Novorossiisk, this position lacks the centrality that makes Crimea strategically valuable. With the penisula firmly in Russian hands, Sevastopol now acts as a forward operating base, supported from behind by Novorossiisk.

    In this capacity, transport ships from the Black Sea Fleet have been used to deliver goods from Novorossiisk to the Russian naval facility at Tartus on the Syrian Coast, says Maxim Shepovalenko, a former Russian naval officer, now an expert at the Center for the Analysis of Strategies and Technologies.

    This route, known as the Syrian express, is a vital line of supply for Russia's military operation in Syria. But the arrangement between Sevastopol and Novorossiisk is even more significant in that it allowed the Russian navy to develop a layered defense arrangement incorporating naval aircraft and ground-based defense units, Shepovalenko says.

    Re-Militarization

    The creation of a "defense in depth" arrangement in the Black Sea kicked into high-gear two months after Crimea's annexation. In May 2014, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that 68 billion rubles ($957 million) would be diverted from a 20 trillion ruble ($292 billion) military modernization budget to overhaul the fleet. Officials at the time claimed it would buy the Black Sea Fleet some 80 new ships. That number is undoubtedly misleading, as it also counts tugboats among the new assets.

    Rearmament takes time, especially when talking about ships. The first deliveries of new vessels to the Black Sea were completed by the end of 2014, with two Improved Kilo-class diesel-electric submarines inducted into the fleet. Two more Improved Kilo-class subs were delivered in 2015, and a final two submarines are scheduled for delivery this year.

    In total, the Black Sea Fleet received around 15 vessels of various sizes and classes, according to data collected by CAST. In addition to the submarines, these included seven patrol boats and two missile corvettes.

    The heavier surface combatants are expected to go into service with the fleet later this year, and include three brand-new Admiral Grigorovich-class frigates. Three more are on the way, but an unintended consequence of Russia's war with Ukraine has been the loss of Ukrainian engine deliveries for the large ships, leading to delays. And an additional 15 new missile corvettes are expected by 2020, according to CAST.

    When judged by size, the beefing up of the Black Sea Fleet may appear to be anti-climactic to citizens of Western nations that field large navies comprised of increasingly large and complex ships — such as the United States. But what makes the modernized capabilities of the Black Sea Fleet noteworthy is the key capability shared by the Kilo-class submarines, the Grigorovich-class frigates, and small missile corvettes: they all serve as launch platforms for Russia's brand-new Kalibr land attack cruise missiles.

    The Kalibr turned heads in October 2015, when Russia's Caspian Flotilla launched a major salvo of the new cruise missiles from the Caspian Sea to hit alleged terrorist groups in Syria. The strike demonstrated that Russia now has long-range guided attack capabilities, which it previously lacked.

    In addition to the new ships, Russia's has stepped up land-based defenses. Missile and coastal defense systems now cover the peninsula, and new fighter and bomber wings are stationed at Crimean airfields.

    The net result of this activity is simple: in two years Russia has created an elaborate defensive zone covering Crimea and most of the Black Sea region. With this net, it can both throw its weight around the neighborhood and seriously deter any potential foe from entering the Black Sea.

    With even heavier additions on their way, Russia is on track to reassert itself as the dominant naval power in the Black Sea region

    A very biased website I must say.

    In the article about a rescue ship the Russians are putting into service there was a lot of bollocks...

    Ooh... they need 8 of them... ooh Russian Navy experts are few in number and totally biased... Ooh the ship in question can't rescue people at the full depth of 500m it was designed for yet and needs further testing in service to do so... and then it admits that the US equivalent can only operate to 200m depths which makes it simpler and cheaper... what they don't mention is that the capacity to operate at 500m greatly increases the "types" of work the ship can perform and that 99% of the work deep submergence rescue vessels do has nothing to do with rescuing people... anything that sinks to 500m will contain dead bodies most of the time anyway.

    there are many episode of this series but these two gives a good idea how a Modern Corvette and Kilo class submarine Detects and Track each other. Even though the Kilo are of old type commisioned in 1990 it managed to track and fire first at the most modern corvette of RuN Smile

    Two hulls of Project 1241 Molnya missile boats which remained in the state of limbo for a while will be completed by the shipbuilding yard Vympel to a the specifications of Project 12418 missile corvettes.

    Molnya (Lightning) To Become A Thunderbolt

    For those who do not remember, those ungainly ships went into existence as Tarantul-class missile boats in 1970s and even US Navy had one (former DDR Navy's Hiddensee) serving at Naval Air Warfare Center in Maryland in 1990s. Latest iterations of venerable Tarantuls, however, are a different game. Project 12418 corvettes are armed with 16 Uran-E (Switchblade) missiles.

    movie:

    Vietnamese Navy's (export) version :

    There will be obvious upgrades, including latest electronic suite for corvettes for the Russian Navy. Considering the fact that in Sea Denial and A2/AD business a salvo means a lot, it means that theoretical salvo of Russian Navy in the theater, where these corvettes will be serving, grows by additional 32 anti-shipping missiles. That is a lot, to put it mildly without resorting to the specifics of Salvo Equations and coefficients which constitute them. Obviously, such corvettes have very limited Air Defense (for now) and no ASW suites to talk about, but they fit perfectly in a littoral A2/AD settings where other heterogeneous forces will be taking care of air defense and ASW.

    Like all 21631 and 22800 ships...which supposed to operate also in mediterranean. The only hope I can see is thet 22800 will have modular mission based containers with ASW.

    So I was wondering something.

    Exactly how many of your guys cold war era ships are active? hopwmuch are up to date tech wise.

    How many of your old destroyers classes do you guys even have in service how many of those are up to date.

    How many ships does the Navy plan to modernize combat ships.

    This site has ship information on all present Russian and former FSU vessels.

    http://russianships.info/eng/warships/project_22160.htm

    The 22160 is a patrol ship closer to a Coast Guard Cutter for Patrols in the Black, Mediterranean and Red Seas and is 1300 tonnes.

    And there are US and Western posters here also amigo not just "your guys".

    With 5k they almost can be destroyers Very Happy 1,500-1,800t respective for 22160. Well, broadly similar to USS Independence class lets say, but still lighter and better armed. However if we are talking about weigth class, they are more of large patrol ships that uses Coast Guard.

    so is the project 22160 yours guy's answer take on our littoral combat ships? I read some place it's goung to be like 5k tons that accurate?

    With 5k they almost can be destroyers Very Happy 1,500-1,800t respective for 22160. Well, broadly similar to USS Independence class lets say, but still lighter and better armed. However if we are talking about weigth class, they are more of large patrol ships that uses Coast Guard.

    That's what I thought. I was like "5k tons and they are spitting it out already? why did take so long to build those other frigates then"

    Were purchasing the engines from Ukraine and Germany.

    I am aware I remember telling my friends, the russians shouldn't be relying on other nations for parts because eventually you will have this problem.

    That said I am looking forward to see the changes the Borei 2 and Yasen 2's will have compared to their older versions
