In the end it's all just anime fanart just like everything else from Krylov.
Its just fanart... until the 1st one gets built.
Seriously, instead of just shitting on Krylov because of their "pagoda" Lider, whats your issue with this corvette design? I personally like it, and if they can keep the manning level down to a minimum, I think its feasible.
Krylov, Khunichev, Kurganmashzavod... I think you just hate enterprises starting with K....
I got no beef with K. Especially not with Kurganmashzavod. As for Krunichev are you going to tell me that you are a fan of those dicks?
My issue is that everyone is having a boner when they start counting missiles on this anime BS while nobody make an effort to ask about RANGE and ENDURANCE. That's the problem here.
If you remember it was short range and endurance that prompted Navy to go from Steregushy to Gremashi/Derzki corvettes.
And now we have this fanart that is supposed to have same or even smaller range and endurance than Steregushy. WTF???
And they have the balls to claim that it will cost little more than Buyan. Horseshit!!!
This has ''SCAM'' written all over it.
VLS systems alone will cost as much as Buyan and then you need to add price of hull itself + radars + sonars + torpedoes + helicopter infrastructure + CIWS. At least.
All for ship that will not be leaving coastal AA and anti-ship coverage 90% of the time. With that attitude it is cheaper to just bolt some sonars on Karakurts and call it a day.
They have plenty of corvette types in production. They need to move on to building stuff they actually need.
Gonna have to go with PD on this one.
IMO, With respects to Corvettes, the Russian navy should focus on the Karakurt and the Drezki, and if anything bigger is needed than expand the Drezki design.
With that said, i am not against something like this, problem is, in it's current form it just doesn't make sense, the superstructure alone has me baffled, and what the hell is that thing between the missiles and the superstructure.
On a lesser note, the missile config is just wrong, anti-air need to be in front while UKSKs in the back, unless there are two Pantsirs in front (picture isn't very clear), if so, then it's doable.
And as PD said, no way in hell is it gonna be cheaper or even as cheap as the Buyan.
P.S: Can you guys give this ship a name, can't find any info without it's name.
