Secs of pr.22350M:
Length - 160 m
Full displacement - 8000 t
Full speed - 30 knots
- 6 x UKSK for 48 Zirkon, Onyx, Kalibr
- 96 missiles for polyment-redut
- 2 x helicopters
Not realistic. It's only 25m longer than a Gorshkov. How would you pack 4 UKSK and 8 Redut (64 missiles) more on a 25m longer Gorshkov ?
Its possible, because with the length of the ship, its width will probably increase as well.
And dont forget that those cells for the 9K96 Redut missile system are smaller in size.
1. 9K96; This means that the ship would have 4 launch VLS launchers with 8 missiles per VLS launcher in the bow of the ship, while the other 4 VLS launchers would be in the ships stern. But in that list above your comment is 96 missiles not 64.
2. UKSK; 3 or 4 of the UKSK launchers (VLS for Kalibr, Onyx, Cirkon) with 8 missiles per UKSK in the bow of the ship and the other 2 or 3 UKSK could be placed in the stern of the ship.
* My opinion; Perhaps the Russians should start installing universal vertical launchers, as the United States and China do in Arleigh Burke class and Type-052D or Type-055. Although, it doesn't matter, because on most destroyers, at least half of the missiles are intended for air defense.
The Arleigh Burke class destroyers have a length of 154 meters for the first two variants (Flight 1 and Flight 2), while the latest models (those of the Flight 3 variant) have a full length of up to 160 meters. And first 28 destroyers (from DDG-51 Arleigh Burke to DDG-78 Porter) have 91 VLS cells in total and from DDG-79 every ship has 96 VLS cells in total.
