    Hey all.

    Lets try and imagine Northern fleet in 30 years from now looking at the englarged design, how many would they end into the Northern fleet?
    And what other warships they they throwing into the northern fleet? and will it always be Russia's most powerful fleet?

    Страж is a patrol unit with obvious limits (it cannot boast obviously the same offensive and defensive equipment of a surface unit of equivalent cost neither the kinematic and sensor capability of a submarine one) but at the same time this unit would boast a survivability totally unknow up today for any unit of the same displacement class.

    A Страж could patrol an area with its sonar and radar receiving data from satellite network and engage from very long range an enemy unit with its missiles, a group of enemy aircraft and ships could deliver, at this point, a saturating attack with AGM-158C LRASM , Naval Strike Missiles, JSOW against it and this entire attack would become totally worthless because within few dozen of seconds the Страж could easily descend 30-50 m underwater.

    The same could happen when a group of P-8As, armed with sonobuoys, Mark-54 torpedos and deep charges to hunt a "submarine", after an under-water contact in an area, would become easy prey for a surface unit with a powerful radar appearing from literally nowere.

    This submersable patrol boat is very interesting... I would imagine some for of EW or radar picket type role together with deception as well.

    A group of four or five of these vessels with corner reflectors might appear to be much larger on radar than they actually are, and broadcasting signals from a few AESA arrays used to scan the surrounding airspace might make the enemy think they are a more substantial unit or force than they actually are, so they could act as a diversion or even the first wave of an attack... if the enemy responds with a massive attack with anti ship missiles they could certainly detect that and submerge in plenty of time to evade such an attack with zero chance of losses.

    Conversely you might have some of these vessels operating with other submarines, so if the enemy are alerted to the presence of your subs and deploy anti sub aircraft and ships these vessels could surface and engage those ships with capable modern anti ship missiles and also the aircraft with capable medium and long range SAMs that could obviously surface and lure enemy forces away from you sub force.

    Equally if the enemy use their own subs to try to engage your subs these subs can surface and act like surface ships hunting your subs and getting them to reveal their position to your silent subs present there who could relay the results of their much better sonar arrays to the other platforms there to engage.

    It is like a mixed medium platform... like an amphibious jet aircraft that can fly to locations faster than any boat can sail... land on the water, and drop a dipping sonar or deploy a towed sonar array and release torpedoes to deal with anything found, but also get airborne if under attack itself.

    This submersible ship can evade anti ship weapons by being a sub and evade air deployed and ship deployed anti sub weapons by being a ship.

    What will be important is the balance they can achieve as to how good a sub and how good a ship it will be.

    I remember in the 1990s there was a computer game on the Amiga 500 called Interceptor and the bad guys in the game, which was set in the San Fransisco area were fighter aircraft being launched from a fictional Soviet submersable aircraft carrier.

    At the time I thought it was a good idea, but how many aircraft could you possibly fit on a carrier that size, and the obvious problems that when it is on the surface it is very vulnerable, and when it is submerged it is not a carrier anymore...

    New ships don't have portholes and the walkways down the sides of the ship are normally fully enclosed now, but to make it fully submersible is a big further step in complication... you wouldn't want anything much bigger than a corvette sized vessel...

    In this day and age when situational awareness is being provided by swarms of drones, Russia somehow believes that this neither here, nor there vessel will somehow remain undetected. Would have scored some points had it been unmanned, but it’s probably not that either.

    You guys would have been much better designing a stealthy destroyer. The acoustic signature of the Zumwalt class destroyer is comparable to that of the Los Angeles-class submarines.

    Basically, what the Russian Navy is settling for is a compromised vessel that is neither a well developed surface combatant nor a well developed boat. Technologies that eliminate or substantially simplify existing submarine hull, mechanical, and electrical systems are missing because this is supposed to be a ship while at the same time numerous combat systems, traditional rotating radar, [preferably] a Tumblehome wave piercing hull are all missing because this is supposed to be a boat.  Your James Bondski stuff is a Timex watch in a digital age.

    Apart from having an extensive satellite network at LEO, the U.S Navy will deploy dozens of X-61 Gremlin drones that can cover hundreds of miles of the ocean and will pick up the signal of this BOSS ship in an instance. These drone wingman will drastically improve a P-8A, MH-60, F-35 aircraft’s situational awareness by flying ahead with infrared, electromagnetic, radar or visual sensors. This will improve the human pilot’s situational awareness, map out targets, or identify the location of radars and air defense systems to provide a clear corridor for the manned aircraft. Once identified a volley of torpedoes will be fired at this ship/boat.  You may choose to run, but may not choose to hide.

    blah blah blah... I have better things to do than wade thru a load of nonsensical exceptionalist clap-trap from an self-appointed armchair-expert... Suspect

    Put simply, this concept is for a submarine that can operate as a patrol vessel when running on the surface. It will be a mostly conventional submarine design with an enlarged sail that incorporates additional sensors, weapons and facility to launch and recover UAVs. What makes this clown think that it will be so vulnerable to detection and interdiction as to make it impractical, yet at the same time he yabbers that the failed Zumwalt white elephant is acoustically quiet (and therefore hard to detect)??? USN satellites and Gremlins will render it impotent, yet presumably USN Virginias will rule the waves and remain undetectable? Suspect

    Is there is something in the water than makes Murkans this dumb?

    Regularly stealing Russian technologies certainly help but how did the Chinese develop the prototype this fast? Could be 3D printing.

    The Chinese are the world's largest shipbuilder. Larger than South Korea or Japan. So it is hardly surprising they can build a ship quickly.
    And no the US is nowhere near the top 3.

    Most likely such a ship will remain on artist rendition for a while,

    But US stealth really sucks, if Zumwalt has same signature as Los Angeles class that is really bad

    Russia can already detect Virginia class submarines, it looks like the US stealth is at a poor level

    It is a concept, I am sure with a lot of thought they could come up with a range of roles for which its specific design features make it particularly useful and its weaknesses are negated or minimised.

    If they build a prototype then they can test it, but we can hardly talk about is sensibly till we know what they expect it to excel at... they might just want it for short range patrol, or they might want it to operate two abreast inside the new 40K helicopter carrier landing ships as surface and underwater drones... they might be high speed hydrofoil ships for all we know. Might be all electric drive with a small nuclear power system like the 6 Mega watt power generators they are going to use for their space tugs... that is roughly the power the Kilo class subs ( about 5.1 megawatt)....

    What are you talking about....Zumwalts???

    China is far ahead of the US in shipbuilding per year. The only thing the US deliver faster to its navy are nuclear subs. And that is soly because China still is behind in that kind of technology and no massproduction is in place...yet.
