    You can also add the Retivy and Stroigy out of Severnaya Verf as these are 20380s but with the Gremy-style tower. Retivy is launched but few good pics exist yet. In comparison, Aldar Longname looks to be a simpler (cheaper?) advanced version developed solely for Amur/Far East?

    The return of the Corvette: why the Navy decided to resume delayed projects

    https://iz.ru/1081122/dmitrii-boltenkov-roman-kretcul/vozvrashchenie-korveta-pochemu-vmf-reshil-vozobnovit-otlozhennye-proekty?utm_referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fzen.yandex.com&utm_campaign=dbr


    ...Currently, corvettes of the 20380 family have been brought up to date, have become full-fledged combat systems and have proven themselves well in various campaigns. So, the existing pair of Pacific fleet corvettes this year went to the South Pacific and Arctic waters of the Bering and Chukchi seas. The sailors ' reviews of these ships are only positive. Therefore, it is not surprising that the Navy decided to continue building this series, signing a contract with USC for 10 corvettes (eight of project 20380 and two of project 20385) on the sidelines of the Army 2020 forum...

    We rarely hear what sailors think about ships they use and it seems that their opinion was instrumental in deciding to order more Steregushchiy-class ships



    ...But there is no news about the continuation of the construction of a series of corvettes 20386, which were supposed to become the basis of the Russian Navy for operations in the near sea zone, so far. Apparently, the Navy is waiting for the completion of the construction of the only Corvette of this project "mercury", conducting tests and further deciding its fate...

    Obvious answers and logical move

    Won't stop idiots from ranting about how Mercury-class is cancelled though

    The Severnaya Shipyard is set to deliver the Project 20385 lead corvette Gremyashchiy to the Russian Navy on December 25, Shipyard CEO Igor Orlov said on Thursday.

    Does anyone know what makes the Gremyashchiys "too expensive" for large scale manufacture?

    Wouldn't the Redut system be the most expensive thing on the ship?

    Basically the 20386 Mercury doesn't cost all that much more than the Gremyashchyj, but is more flexible so if it pans out they'll just order those

    The Gorshkov doesn't cost all that much more either, and if they just need a general-purpose sea zone vessel with firepower they can acquire more of those instead of Gremyashyj's, with more endurance to boot

    And of course the Steregushyj while less capable, is also a lot cheaper and works fine as a littoral patrol vessel

    So the Gremyashyj doesn't really have a niche. It's being ordered while Gorshkov construction and working out the kinks is still getting into gear, and the Mercury is still being constructed and then trialed.

    The lack of USKS significantly limits the potential of new ships.

    They have other ships for UKSK. Steregoushchy is meant for multi role operation near the shores. It has anti air, anti ship and anti sub weapons with powerfull jammers.

    They are replacing soviet small boats, not kirovs. Being cheap means lot of ships build so that the navy has lot of new plateforms and replace the obsolate doviet boats.

    They are also developping angled kalibr launchers if they really need them.

    The Ch 35 is a slow, short-range missile, just like the Harpoon, it is easy to intercept.

    Not every target out there in the ocean is an Aegis destroyer or an aircraft carrier. Nor would most targets even be aware they are under attack in the first place. An Aegis destroyer would readily succumb to a salvo of Kh-35 if it was caught with its radars cold (or just the bridge crew napping), which happens a lot more than one could expect.

    Just like every cruise missile. IF you are in possession of a decent air defence system. Which not every country or terror organisation has.

    Steregushyj not even a USKS launcher, only Uranus crap.

    The Kh-35 is actually a rather good missile in its class. In comparison to its rivals... Exocet and Harpoon, it is longer ranged and more accurate, with a very capable low power MMW radar seeker that is tough to jam...

    The lack of USKS significantly limits the potential of new ships.

    They use Corvettes for a wide range of missions and roles... not all of them are required to launch 2,500km range land strikes against terrorists...

    The Ch 35 is a slow, short-range missile, just like the Harpoon, it is easy to intercept.

    Like those drones and missiles that took out those oil facilities in Saudi Arabia were easy to intercept?

    They fly at about 3m altitude above the wave tops... they are not easy to intercept by any means for 90% of the worlds navies.

    And even those 10% that could deal with such missiles, they have a range of ships from carriers and cruisers down to supply and support ships... not every ship in the US navy needs a Zircon to sink it...

    Having Urans makes it as well armed as any HATO frigate...

    A perfectly adequate weapon for all targets < 3500 ton displacement; missile boats, landing vessels, logistics vessels, other corvettes and light frigates near the shore.
    Not to mention it's well equipped against subs which is the oth r main thing.

    The Steregushiys won't be taking on carrier groups nor destroyers

    And the harpoon has its niche too after all

    The way I see it if you can mount a better missile then not doing it is wasteful.

    They don't need anything better than Harpoon... the Russian Navy is tiny... and they have more than enough Harpoons and carriers and carrier aircraft and bases around China to exert the pressure they want to exert.

    The ships in a US carrier group are there to protect the carrier, the main strike power comes from the carrier aircraft.

    Equally they have enough missile cruisers to load one up specially to attack a specific target and send it in a group of other ships that can have the air defence missiles to protect it.

    They also have bases around the planet where they can fly in missiles to load on ships to deploy anywhere rather quickly.

    When War is business then having to buy batches of anti ship missiles in the thousands is a good thing for them.

    When was the last time they actually sank a ship?

    Most of their operations are sabre rattling and showing the flag.

    The project 20380 corvette "Hero of the Russian Federation Aldar Tsydenzhapov" (serial number 2103), as part of the program of factory sea trials in the Peter the Great Gulf, for the first time took on board the Ka-27PL deck-based anti-submarine helicopter of the Pacific Fleet aviation.

    Currently, many ships are being built. Will the Russian navy be large in 2030? Lots of new frigates, corvettes, maybe project 22350M, lots of submarines.In addition, modern anti-ship and maneuvering missiles will significantly increase the capabilities of this VMF. Now even ships with a displacement of 800 tons have a lot of power. Still the tactic of diffuse mortality.
