    Yantar shipyard received a second afterburner engine to complete repairs of frigate Neustrashimii

    https://shipyard-yantar.ru/2021/08/06/%D1%81%D0%BA%D1%80-%D0%BD%D0%B5%D1%83%D1%81%D1%82%D1%80%D0%B0%D1%88%D0%B8%D0%BC%D1%8B%D0%B9-%D0%BF%D0%BE%D0%BB%D1%83%D1%87%D0%B8%D0%BB-%D0%B2%D1%82%D0%BE%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%B9-%D1%84%D0%BE/

    Currently, the readiness of the ship is 90 percent. After the installation of the second main afterburner engine is completed, it is planned to start the active phase of mooring tests. After that, the ship will have to pass factory sea trials and it will be handed over to the customer.

    Neustrashimii is one of the three ships that the Yantar plant plans to deliver in 2021.

    Is an 'afterburner' engine a gas turbine?

    Also how do RuN grades of Captain rank map across to Western ranks?

    Captain in the navy is usually reserved for Crusier and above ships. Tho you need to have some additional qualifications to command an Aircraft carrier.

    Commander (O-5) level, typically command destroyer, frigate for 0-5'S with the right qualifications like surface warfare officers, a nuclear-powered attack submarine, or ballistic missile submarine.

    In the Navy, The Captian rank is comparable to Colonel in other branches.

    Their Captain 1st rank would be comparable to USN Captains.

    On August 18, 2021, the Kerch shipbuilding plant "Zaliv" launched the main cable vessel "Volga" of project 15310 (code "Cabel") with the factory number 301. The construction was carried out in the interests of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

    The vessel received the paint adopted for vessels of the Main Directorate of Deep-Sea Research (GUGI) of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

    Very good, I remember having read that this (together with his brother) was stuck in the drydock in incomplete state for a few years due to lack of some specific equipment due to sanctions...

    ... and the living proof, that Zaliv is working as planned, what used to be neglected by nay-sayers for a long time.

    Most likely, since the construction should have been completed two years ago according to the original plan

    By the way, was Zaliv in better condition than the shipyards in Nikolaev in 2014?

    Zaliv now has a very ambitious task. Construction of two LHD units with a displacement of 40,000 tons. No other shipyard in Russia builds such large ships aside from Zviezda. I wonder if Zaliv will build a new Russian aircraft carrier in the future? scratch

    Zaliv is slated for construction of the lead ship of the Lider - we'll see?

    AND I hope to see a couple of new Zubrs in future! Smile

    Times, when old warships used to rust just along the pier or sink in harbour, are over.
    Scrapping is running according to the plan, I'm quite surprised they took care of that with such a rush.

    I definitely read it somewhere "official". I'll try and find the source but anyway Russia is quite serious in pursuing and aircraft carrier program in the near future. The Slavas are getting old with no upgrade plans so they will have to look at a replacement quite soon to escort the carriers.

    The Gorskov-M destroyers will replace the Udaloys and what's left of the Sovremennys. Lider will likely replace the Slavas.

    I've read it somewhere that the lead ship of the Lider class will start building in 2023 in the Zaliv shipyard. In the same article I've read that the Lider will be nuclear powered and will be quite large at around  18-19000 tons. It could have been something on Balancer.ru as I visit there quite often? However I've only managed so far to get a Wikipedia reference to that effect, but no real details or further citations on Wikipedia.

    I think you're mistaken, Russia plans to start building its 2nd and 3rd Lider-Class Icebreakers starting from 2023.

    The steel cutting for the first Project 10510 icebreaker began at Zvezda on 6 July 2020. The first vessel of the series will be named Rossiya, a name previously given to the third Arktika-class icebreaker that was in service in 1985–2013. It was laid down on 5 July 2021. The construction of two follow-on vessels is planned to begin in 2023 and 2025 respectively. The envisaged dates for making those ships operational are projected as 2030 and 2032

    Don't know what you read, but Zaliv is pretty busy with the two massive heli carriers that got laid down a year ago. Any space in the dock as well as worker capacity is likely to be VERY limited and no way they have enough workers and space for a 20k nuclear cruiser.

    Biggest thing that's about to be laid down soon is the Gorshkov-Ms that are confirmed to be laid down as soon as Sev Verf finishes construction of their new large boathouse.

    I'm talking about Zaliv and not the Zvezda shipyard and it does not include the icebreakers.
