    MOSCOW, March 19. /TASS/. The technological upgrade of the Sevmash shipyard in northern Russia will enable it to build fifth-generation nuclear-powered submarines, the plant’s CEO Mikhail Budnichenko has told TASS.

    "Resolving the global task of upgrading to the new technical level will allow us not just to build fifth-generation submarines and other naval equipment boosting defense capabilities and economic potential of our country, but also to solve other possible tasks for the shipyard," he said, adding that a large-scale technical upgrade was underway at the facility.

    Budnichenko added that the enterprise was preparing to introduce the modular method of submarine construction.

    Russia’s Severodvinsk-based Sevmash Shipyard (a subsidiary of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) said in 2021 it had approved the concept of modular submarine construction. The new technology allows assembling submarine hulls from large modules, reducing the time of docking works by 18 months.

    I want to know does Russia build small submarines? I think small subs have their advantages of low cost and stealthy small size; it seems like it would be a good market to sell small submarines to poor countries that can't afford larger diesel electric attack submarines like Cuba, Venezuela, Thailand and a few others.  

    Turkey is making a good decision in my opinion in tapping into this market.

    They do build small subs and specialist vessels, but mostly for specific roles.

    Smaller subs are generally of limited speed and endurance and are not really comparable to full sized subs in most regards... the Piranha class of subs, which are rather small sized vessels capable of 4-6 knots on a good day so you don't want to have to have them as your only sub... the Soviets used to have a class of sub to carry rescue subs around, but not one to carry mini subs around which as I said have low speed and limited endurance compared with larger subs.

    The endurance for the Piranha subs, which the Soviets called LOSOS was about 10 days with a crew of 9 or so.

    Of course these subs were not low cost because they were made of titanium so they were not magnetic and magnetic mines and MAD detectors would have trouble finding them... they were going to make 12 but ended up only making two.

    ASZ announced its readiness to join the production of Project 22350 frigates

    August 11, 2022 at 16: 14 Subject: Industry

    Amur Shipbuilding Plant (ASZ) may join the program of production of Project 22350 frigates for the Russian Navy. This was reported on Thursday, August 11, in the press service of the enterprise.

    As representatives of the shipyard explained, the expert commission, which included representatives of the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Industry and Trade, signed a protocol on the possibility of building a series of first-rank ships (frigates) of Project 22350 at the ASZ.

    It should be noted that to date, the only builder of frigates of Project 22350 is the St. Petersburg Severnaya Verf plant, which has handed over two such ships to the Navy (Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov and Admiral of the Fleet Kasatonov). Another frigate, the Admiral Golovko, is scheduled for testing in the fall.

    It should be noted that today the Amur Shipyard fulfills its obligations under contracts concluded with the Russian Defense Ministry in 2020, under which the shipyard must transfer two Project 20380 corvettes and four Project 20385 corvettes to the Russian Navy. A contract is also being implemented for the supply of four small missile ships of Project 22800 (code "Karakurt").

    Deputy Head of USC Korolev: we will provide all the needs of the Navy in the designated time frame

    On domestic shipbuilding in the context of a special military operation in Ukraine
    The Russian shipbuilding industry is tasked with achieving technological sovereignty. This requirement is enshrined not only in the new Maritime doctrine, but also in the design bureaus and shipyards of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) are working to achieve this goal. In an interview with TASS on the sidelines of the Army-2022 International Military-Technical Forum, the Deputy General Director spoke about the prospects of the Russian shipbuilding industry, the feasibility of adjusting its program to take into account a special military operation, the corporation's shipyards ' ability to speed up the repair and construction of units, and which ships the Russian fleet needs most today. USC for Military Shipbuilding Vladimir Korolev.

    - Vladimir Ivanovich, do you plan to sign new contracts with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation within the framework of the Army-2022 forum, as it was done earlier?

    — Currently, the Russian Defense Ministry has not received any such proposals. However, our corporation is ready to consider them. Nevertheless, I would not like to reduce USC's participation in the Army forum to just signed contracts. Here people meet, questions are asked and answers are found that determine the future of our fleet.

    — What ships do you think the Navy needs most at the present time? Is there an urgent need to adjust the shipbuilding program to take into account the special military operation in Ukraine?

    — Of course, events such as a special military operation provide a lot of food for thought for all interested parties. Today, the information space is replete with various points of view on the issue of determining the ship composition of the fleet and conducting various forms of military operations. But the stated points of view are one thing, and the adjustment of the shipbuilding program is quite another. Of course, it is possible, but after a very balanced analysis of many factors. For example, the presidential decree "On approval of the New Maritime Doctrine of the Russian Federation"has just been signed. But do not think that it is a reaction to the events of recent months — the new Naval Doctrine has been prepared for more than one year, and it answers questions that have been accumulating for many years.

    Adjustments to the current shipbuilding program are provided for every five years as part of the development of a new state armament program. The formation of such program documents by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is carried out in the process of multivariate research, which certainly ensures a rational distribution of allocated resources to achieve the maximum equipment and efficiency of the weapons system necessary and sufficient to protect Russia's interests from any external threats.

    In my opinion, which ships are most needed by the Navy? I will not be original if I say that just those that are being built at the corporation's enterprises-otherwise why would we build them? These are a series of modern surface ships such as "frigate" and "corvette", a submarine fleet, including a series of nuclear submarines. By order of the Russian Defense Ministry, the corporation performs development work on the creation of new surface and submarine ships.

    — In a number of media outlets, there are proposals to buy a large batch of ships in China for the emergency closure of the needs of the Russian Navy. To what extent do you think such initiatives are justified?

    — In my opinion, the Russian shipbuilding industry, despite the existing objective difficulties, is able to solve all the tasks set to meet the needs of the Navy in the prescribed time frame. In the interests of national security of the country, it is necessary to have its own modern production base that provides a full life cycle from the creation to the disposal of ships with the possibility of their modernization.

    I do not think that diverting financial resources to build ships in friendly countries is an effective solution to the issue of an emergency increase in their number. In addition, in this case, a number of questions will arise regarding crew training, operation, maintenance and repair, provision of spare parts, and finally-protection of state secrets.

    This, of course, does not mean that we should completely curtail mutually beneficial military-technical cooperation with friendly countries. In the current international situation, it plays a positive role in ensuring regional security.

    — In your opinion, are USC shipyards able to raise the speed of ship repair and construction to the level of the world's leading shipbuilding corporations?

    — In my opinion, they are not only capable, but also should. But it's not just up to us. At the shipyards, work is constantly being done to reduce deadlines. For this purpose, enterprises are being equipped with new technological equipment, modern technologies are being introduced. However, it should be borne in mind that the share of the shipyard's own work in the construction of the ship is on average about 30%, the rest depends on the equipment suppliers. Therefore, the terms of construction of a ship are determined by two-thirds compliance with the terms of delivery of equipment with a long manufacturing cycle. When it comes to new weapons systems, some delays, unfortunately, are inevitable.

    But if we, as the world's leading shipbuilding corporations, have orders for large series, stable supplies of components and financing, I am sure we will gain momentum. And we have proved it more than once — take submarines for example.

    — The USC leadership has repeatedly stated that Russian nuclear submarines are built entirely from domestic components. And what is the situation with the problem of replacing foreign components in the construction of surface ships?

    - Design bureaus-designers, together with cooperative enterprises and factories-builders of surface ships under the leadership of the USC and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, are consistently working to replace foreign components with domestic ones in the face of sanctions pressure on the Russian Federation. Where it is not possible to do this in a short time, while foreign analogues are used, but the task of achieving technological sovereignty is set. This is also enshrined in the new Maritime Doctrine: "ensuring the technological independence of the Russian Federation in the field of shipbuilding".

    — When is the Admiral Nakhimov Project 1144.2 M heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser scheduled to go to sea for testing? And how does USC see the future for this ship? How do you assess its combat capabilities?

    — The procedure and terms of testing are determined by the general schedule for the repair of the cruiser. The first sea launch of the cruiser for testing is planned after the completion of the entire complex of mooring tests. We are proceeding in compliance with the general schedule.

    In accordance with the technical design of the ship, outdated systems and complexes will be replaced with modern weapons and military equipment, which in their characteristics correspond to the appearance of a promising ship. After the repair is completed, the Navy will receive a new modern ship capable of performing all its tasks in any area of the World's oceans.

    — Is the transfer of the Generalissimo Suvorov Project 955A Borey-A nuclear-powered submarine to the Russian Navy confirmed this year?

    — The ship is already at the test stage and will be transferred to the Navy after their completion.

    — When can we expect the launch of the main upgraded frigate 22350M at Severnaya Verf?

    - Laying is planned after the development of the technical design and working design documentation in the amount of at least 60%. All documents are prepared by the Northern Design Bureau, and the technical design will soon be submitted to the Russian Defense Ministry for approval.

    — When will the final decision be made on the sixth building of project 11356? Does the Yantar shipyard have the necessary capabilities to complete the construction of this ship in the interests of the Russian Navy?

    — The Ministry of Defense has not yet made a decision on this issue. PSZ Yantar has extensive experience in building ships of this project, three have already been transferred to the Navy. The technology has been developed, a stable cooperation of suppliers of component equipment has been created — we are ready to build if the Ministry of Defense decides to do so. You can also start building a new series of such ships.

    — What are the prospects for completing the project 20385 Agile corvette at Severnaya Verf? What was the conclusion of the USC commission that investigated the causes and consequences of the fire on this ship?

    — The commission for identifying the causes and consequences of a technical accident, which included representatives of the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia, and specialized organizations, made the main conclusion — about the possibility of completing the ship. We will complete it and transfer it to the Navy.

    — Will some of the orders currently being executed by Severnaya Verf be transferred to other shipyards of the corporation?

    — No, such a transfer is not planned. Severnaya Verf is now expanding its production facilities. A new complex with modern equipment is being built on its territory. With its introduction, the shipyard will be able to increase the range and basic dimensions of its products, reduce the duration of construction orders.

    — What projects are implemented by the corporation together with the Foundation for Advanced Research (FPI)? Can you tell us more about some of them?

    — Together with the FPI, we have two works related to underwater research. This is the Uragan advance project and the further development of the Vityaz-D project. The first, generally speaking, is a marine mobile robotics system, and the work performed by us is highly appreciated by the customer. The second is a deep-sea robotic complex, which will be retrofitted with new research equipment.

    — The Military Department plans to create bases in the Arctic. Will icebreakers and ice-class supply vessels be built to ensure their operation?

    — In terms of military shipbuilding, ice-class patrol ships of Project 23550 are already being built for the Navy. Proposals for the construction of ships and vessels of other projects have not yet been received.

    — Now very interesting projects for shipbuilding are increasingly appearing: the Varan universal sea ship (Nevsky Design Bureau), the Strazh submerged patrol ship (Rubin Design Bureau), the nuclear submarine for transporting liquefied natural gas (Malachit SPMBM), and others. How would you assess the prospects and uniqueness of such projects? Is there already any interest in them from specific customers, including the Russian Navy?

    — Yes, indeed, today various interesting projects are being developed within the framework of initiative developments, both from an engineering point of view and from a shipbuilding point of view. In many ways, they are unique and can be used in various areas of the national economy, tourism and, of course, in the interests of the country's defense. But, like any other beautiful and bold projects, they must first interest the customer. And customers in the shipbuilding industry, as a rule, have conservative views in a good way, and their decisions are based primarily on the economic component, which is very difficult to calculate for completely new vessels. Therefore, customers prefer something more understandable, proven, preferably with operational experience.

    Nevertheless, such initiative developments make sense, and USC encourages them.

    Because, despite the immediate economic feasibility, we have a great desire to become world leaders on some topics
    Just as the first nuclear — powered icebreaker Lenin once made our country a leader in this area, we still hold the lead in nuclear shipbuilding.

    — Are the enterprises and design bureaus that are part of the USC working on creating completely new projects — ships of the future? What kind of ships will they be, and how much will their appearance change? And how do you see the domestic shipbuilding industry in 10-20 years?

    — Of course, such work is underway. They are aimed at improving the combat effectiveness of ships, improving the quality of weapons and technical means of ships, increasing their ammunition.

    However, the main changes will still take place in a different area. In the near future, along with manned ships, unmanned autonomous robotic ships will go to sea. And on those ships where the crew remains, integrated combat control systems will be implemented, which will combine systems for various functional purposes.

    As for the prospects of shipbuilding, in my opinion, it is necessary to pay attention to the introduction of the modular principle in the design and construction of ships, simplification of the process of restructuring production for new projects and automation of production processes. But no matter how far into the future we look, it is unlikely that we will see a deserted shipyard there. After all, building ships and putting your heart and soul into them is not a robot's job, but a human's.

    Putin criticized the head of USC for unprofitable contracts

    According to the President, "violation of financial discipline does not correspond to the interests of the Motherland"
    SOCHI, August 18. /tass/. Russian President Vladimir Putin considers the violation of financial discipline harmful to the interests of the Motherland, even if it is motivated by them. This issue was raised at a meeting that the head of state held on Thursday on the topic of shipbuilding.

    Putin asked the head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) Alexey Rakhmanov why they have accumulated so many unprofitable contracts. The top manager replied that the corporation acts in favor of customers to complete the construction of ships, and then deals with the money. "Maybe this is the wrong approach, I sprinkle ashes on my head, but it always seemed to me that first the Motherland, and then our finances," Rakhmanov said.

    "I would like to draw your attention to the fact that the interests of the Motherland are directly linked to financial discipline," Putin said. According to him, "violation of financial discipline does not correspond to the interests of the Motherland." "As for the interests of the customer, of course, we need to work with the customer and ensure their interests, but this does not mean that we need to do humpty dumpty: start construction, finish it, and then sort out the finances, adjusting one to the other," the president stressed.

    Putin mentioned the scheme that is used for orders from the Ministry of Defense, when initially there are estimated prices. "All this can be done [for civil orders], the question is not to neglect the interests of the customer. The question is to work out all the formal issues related to the conclusion of the contract in a timely, competent and short time. I draw your attention to this, please, " the President said. "Yes, Vladimir Vladimirovich! Accepted for execution, " - said Rakhmanov.

    Earlier at the meeting, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov said that the government decided to conduct a financial audit of the accumulated debt of USC. According to him, this need arose due to the fact that shipbuilding companies often conclude firm contracts for the construction of civilian vessels in the absence of a final project. As a result, shipyards are forced to take losses for exceeding the original cost in order to hand over the ship. To avoid a repeat of such situations, Manturov instructed USC to no longer enter into contracts for the construction of ships without a technical and economic examination of the project.

    It's not like he has much of a choice, they have to get their Naval and Civilian shipbuilding sorted out as NATO is hell bent on stifling Russian maritime trade as they did to Iran.

    If this operation in Ukraine, and against NATO, one showed that every ship (everything from the Buyan-M class upwards) was built with a marine TOR variant with at least 8 long range and 24 small TOR rockets. A clear rethink must be placed here, a clear priority on this Air-Defense system. No compromises, no hesitation!

    Assuming it passed its tests, I agree.

    It is a compact cheap and capable system but is rather demanding in terms of search and tracking antenna capacity... meaning all their ships need AESA radar sets.. which will not be cheap but should transform their situational awareness and performance.

    Buyan are kept at a good distance so AD isn't really needed even if it would be better to have it.

    Plenty of other ships that are sent on the front have the priority to get better AD systems and radar.

    There is no "good distance" anymore, when you have cheap drones able to fly hundreds of km and conflicts develop in complex geographic contexts where attacks can come from everywhere. Every asset bigger than a small boat needs decent AD, and even the smallest ships will probably get anti-drone means. It is an obvious lesson of the SMO

    But even in that regard Russia is ahead of the west. Pantsir and Tor are pretty good systems. Best western system for smaller vessels is propably RAM which uses parts of Stinger, a complete failure during the SMO.

    USC allowed postponement of the return of the Admiral Kuznetsov to the Navy

    USC announced a possible postponement of the return of the Admiral Kuznetsov to the Navy

    August 20, 2022, 02: 11

    The heavy aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov of the Soviet Union Fleet and the heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser Admiral Nakhimov may be handed over to the Navy by 2024. This was announced on Friday, August 19, by Vladimir Korolev, Deputy General Director of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) for Military Shipbuilding, on the sidelines of the Army-2022 forum.

    "Due to delays in the supply of equipment by cooperative enterprises, there is a possibility of postponing the transfer of the Admiral Kuznetsov fleet to 2024. The same applies to the Admiral Nakhimov cruiser, " he said.

    It is noted that the USC is doing everything possible to transfer the aircraft carrier and cruiser in 2023, as planned,but there is a risk of postponing the deadline.

    Let the tantrums begin... because obviously a delay of one year will make them both totally obsolete because by 2024 everyone will have even bigger ships and these ones will have become not as shiny.... mom... you did this to me last Christmas... and Nyke boots are not the same as Nike boots... all the other kids laughed at me... wah wah wah.

    LMFS wrote:Deputy Head of USC Korolev: we will provide all the needs of the Navy in the designated time frame

    On domestic shipbuilding in the context of a special military operation in Ukraine
    The Russian shipbuilding industry is tasked with achieving technological sovereignty. This requirement is enshrined not only in the new Maritime doctrine, but also in the design bureaus and shipyards of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) are working to achieve this goal. In an interview with TASS on the sidelines of the Army-2022 International Military-Technical Forum, the Deputy General Director spoke about the prospects of the Russian shipbuilding industry, the feasibility of adjusting its program to take into account a special military operation, the corporation's shipyards ' ability to speed up the repair and construction of units, and which ships the Russian fleet needs most today. USC for Military Shipbuilding Vladimir Korolev.

    - Vladimir Ivanovich, do you plan to sign new contracts with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation within the framework of the Army-2022 forum, as it was done earlier?

    — Currently, the Russian Defense Ministry has not received any such proposals. However, our corporation is ready to consider them. Nevertheless, I would not like to reduce USC's participation in the Army forum to just signed contracts. Here people meet, questions are asked and answers are found that determine the future of our fleet.

    — What ships do you think the Navy needs most at the present time? Is there an urgent need to adjust the shipbuilding program to take into account the special military operation in Ukraine?

    — Of course, events such as a special military operation provide a lot of food for thought for all interested parties. Today, the information space is replete with various points of view on the issue of determining the ship composition of the fleet and conducting various forms of military operations. But the stated points of view are one thing, and the adjustment of the shipbuilding program is quite another. Of course, it is possible, but after a very balanced analysis of many factors. For example, the presidential decree "On approval of the New Maritime Doctrine of the Russian Federation"has just been signed. But do not think that it is a reaction to the events of recent months — the new Naval Doctrine has been prepared for more than one year, and it answers questions that have been accumulating for many years.

    Adjustments to the current shipbuilding program are provided for every five years as part of the development of a new state armament program. The formation of such program documents by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is carried out in the process of multivariate research, which certainly ensures a rational distribution of allocated resources to achieve the maximum equipment and efficiency of the weapons system necessary and sufficient to protect Russia's interests from any external threats.

    In my opinion, which ships are most needed by the Navy? I will not be original if I say that just those that are being built at the corporation's enterprises-otherwise why would we build them? These are a series of modern surface ships such as "frigate" and "corvette", a submarine fleet, including a series of nuclear submarines. By order of the Russian Defense Ministry, the corporation performs development work on the creation of new surface and submarine ships.

    — In a number of media outlets, there are proposals to buy a large batch of ships in China for the emergency closure of the needs of the Russian Navy. To what extent do you think such initiatives are justified?

    — In my opinion, the Russian shipbuilding industry, despite the existing objective difficulties, is able to solve all the tasks set to meet the needs of the Navy in the prescribed time frame. In the interests of national security of the country, it is necessary to have its own modern production base that provides a full life cycle from the creation to the disposal of ships with the possibility of their modernization.

    I do not think that diverting financial resources to build ships in friendly countries is an effective solution to the issue of an emergency increase in their number. In addition, in this case, a number of questions will arise regarding crew training, operation, maintenance and repair, provision of spare parts, and finally-protection of state secrets.

    This, of course, does not mean that we should completely curtail mutually beneficial military-technical cooperation with friendly countries. In the current international situation, it plays a positive role in ensuring regional security.

    — In your opinion, are USC shipyards able to raise the speed of ship repair and construction to the level of the world's leading shipbuilding corporations?

    — In my opinion, they are not only capable, but also should. But it's not just up to us. At the shipyards, work is constantly being done to reduce deadlines. For this purpose, enterprises are being equipped with new technological equipment, modern technologies are being introduced. However, it should be borne in mind that the share of the shipyard's own work in the construction of the ship is on average about 30%, the rest depends on the equipment suppliers. Therefore, the terms of construction of a ship are determined by two-thirds compliance with the terms of delivery of equipment with a long manufacturing cycle. When it comes to new weapons systems, some delays, unfortunately, are inevitable.

    But if we, as the world's leading shipbuilding corporations, have orders for large series, stable supplies of components and financing, I am sure we will gain momentum. And we have proved it more than once — take submarines for example.

    — The USC leadership has repeatedly stated that Russian nuclear submarines are built entirely from domestic components. And what is the situation with the problem of replacing foreign components in the construction of surface ships?

    - Design bureaus-designers, together with cooperative enterprises and factories-builders of surface ships under the leadership of the USC and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, are consistently working to replace foreign components with domestic ones in the face of sanctions pressure on the Russian Federation. Where it is not possible to do this in a short time, while foreign analogues are used, but the task of achieving technological sovereignty is set. This is also enshrined in the new Maritime Doctrine: "ensuring the technological independence of the Russian Federation in the field of shipbuilding".

    — When is the Admiral Nakhimov Project 1144.2 M heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser scheduled to go to sea for testing? And how does USC see the future for this ship? How do you assess its combat capabilities?

    — The procedure and terms of testing are determined by the general schedule for the repair of the cruiser. The first sea launch of the cruiser for testing is planned after the completion of the entire complex of mooring tests. We are proceeding in compliance with the general schedule.

    In accordance with the technical design of the ship, outdated systems and complexes will be replaced with modern weapons and military equipment, which in their characteristics correspond to the appearance of a promising ship. After the repair is completed, the Navy will receive a new modern ship capable of performing all its tasks in any area of the World's oceans.

    — Is the transfer of the Generalissimo Suvorov Project 955A Borey-A nuclear-powered submarine to the Russian Navy confirmed this year?

    — The ship is already at the test stage and will be transferred to the Navy after their completion.

    — When can we expect the launch of the main upgraded frigate 22350M at Severnaya Verf?

    - Laying is planned after the development of the technical design and working design documentation in the amount of at least 60%. All documents are prepared by the Northern Design Bureau, and the technical design will soon be submitted to the Russian Defense Ministry for approval.

    — When will the final decision be made on the sixth building of project 11356? Does the Yantar shipyard have the necessary capabilities to complete the construction of this ship in the interests of the Russian Navy?

    — The Ministry of Defense has not yet made a decision on this issue. PSZ Yantar has extensive experience in building ships of this project, three have already been transferred to the Navy. The technology has been developed, a stable cooperation of suppliers of component equipment has been created — we are ready to build if the Ministry of Defense decides to do so. You can also start building a new series of such ships.

    — What are the prospects for completing the project 20385 Agile corvette at Severnaya Verf? What was the conclusion of the USC commission that investigated the causes and consequences of the fire on this ship?

    — The commission for identifying the causes and consequences of a technical accident, which included representatives of the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia, and specialized organizations, made the main conclusion — about the possibility of completing the ship. We will complete it and transfer it to the Navy.

    — Will some of the orders currently being executed by Severnaya Verf be transferred to other shipyards of the corporation?

    — No, such a transfer is not planned. Severnaya Verf is now expanding its production facilities. A new complex with modern equipment is being built on its territory. With its introduction, the shipyard will be able to increase the range and basic dimensions of its products, reduce the duration of construction orders.

    — What projects are implemented by the corporation together with the Foundation for Advanced Research (FPI)? Can you tell us more about some of them?

    — Together with the FPI, we have two works related to underwater research. This is the Uragan advance project and the further development of the Vityaz-D project. The first, generally speaking, is a marine mobile robotics system, and the work performed by us is highly appreciated by the customer. The second is a deep-sea robotic complex, which will be retrofitted with new research equipment.

    — The Military Department plans to create bases in the Arctic. Will icebreakers and ice-class supply vessels be built to ensure their operation?

    — In terms of military shipbuilding, ice-class patrol ships of Project 23550 are already being built for the Navy. Proposals for the construction of ships and vessels of other projects have not yet been received.

    — Now very interesting projects for shipbuilding are increasingly appearing: the Varan universal sea ship (Nevsky Design Bureau), the Strazh submerged patrol ship (Rubin Design Bureau), the nuclear submarine for transporting liquefied natural gas (Malachit SPMBM), and others. How would you assess the prospects and uniqueness of such projects? Is there already any interest in them from specific customers, including the Russian Navy?

    — Yes, indeed, today various interesting projects are being developed within the framework of initiative developments, both from an engineering point of view and from a shipbuilding point of view. In many ways, they are unique and can be used in various areas of the national economy, tourism and, of course, in the interests of the country's defense. But, like any other beautiful and bold projects, they must first interest the customer. And customers in the shipbuilding industry, as a rule, have conservative views in a good way, and their decisions are based primarily on the economic component, which is very difficult to calculate for completely new vessels. Therefore, customers prefer something more understandable, proven, preferably with operational experience.

    Nevertheless, such initiative developments make sense, and USC encourages them.

    Because, despite the immediate economic feasibility, we have a great desire to become world leaders on some topics
    Just as the first nuclear — powered icebreaker Lenin once made our country a leader in this area, we still hold the lead in nuclear shipbuilding.

    — Are the enterprises and design bureaus that are part of the USC working on creating completely new projects — ships of the future? What kind of ships will they be, and how much will their appearance change? And how do you see the domestic shipbuilding industry in 10-20 years?

    — Of course, such work is underway. They are aimed at improving the combat effectiveness of ships, improving the quality of weapons and technical means of ships, increasing their ammunition.

    However, the main changes will still take place in a different area. In the near future, along with manned ships, unmanned autonomous robotic ships will go to sea. And on those ships where the crew remains, integrated combat control systems will be implemented, which will combine systems for various functional purposes.

    As for the prospects of shipbuilding, in my opinion, it is necessary to pay attention to the introduction of the modular principle in the design and construction of ships, simplification of the process of restructuring production for new projects and automation of production processes. But no matter how far into the future we look, it is unlikely that we will see a deserted shipyard there. After all, building ships and putting your heart and soul into them is not a robot's job, but a human's.

    https://tass.ru/interviews/15461475

    This guy sounds like hes desperately trying to shill for severnaya verf, and is hellbent on making severnaya verf be the only shipyard that produces large ships. The guy is straight up lying that USC shipyards can fulfill the needs of the navy in terms of large ships, given that baltic and zvezda are filled with backlogs, severnaya is a corrupt trashheap, and zaliv and more are basically zombie shipyards incapable of building anything more than a patrol boat in a reasonable timeframe.

    But I am not sure they will change them, I have not seen the kind of rework at the flight deck that would make you think they are going to remove the Granits.

    Current force + Gorshkov, Kasatonov and Golovko (more to come next year and in 2024) armed with Tsirkons will cover the gap and keep yankees worried enough in the meanwhile. Plus the 949AM that will also come in the same period, for which the doubt persists, how many CBG a single sub can send to the bottom...

    The problem is the supply chain for those capital vessels seems to be little efficient, logical to a certain point due to their uniqueness. I assume the relevance the navy is getting in this phase of the struggle against the West will force the government to cut the crap and put everyone risking the national security in their place for good. No place for crooks and 5th columnists in the MIC, but they can go to Siberia for a refreshing change in their lives What a Face
