22160 project ships will be equipped with Ka-29 transport and combat helicopters

29
According to the online editionNews", The Russian Navy decided to equip the latest Russian patrol 22160 project ships transport and combat Ka-29 helicopters. Previously, they were located only on ground airfields, on the decks of large landing ships and on the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov.

These machines carry onboard guided and unguided rocket weaponbombs and aviation guns, transport 16 marines in full gear.

22160 project ships will be equipped with Ka-29 transport and combat helicopters


The choice of these helicopters corresponds to the purpose of the ships of this type, which are planned to be used for the protection of territorial waters, the suppression of smuggling, the fight against piracy and the provision of assistance to those in distress. For these purposes, the Ka-29 transport and combat, and not the traditional anti-submarine and search and rescue helicopters, are the most suitable.

According to the decision, the necessary changes were made to the ship construction project, which included the creation of storage space for aircraft armament and the interaction of shipboard electronic systems with the Ka-29 onboard navigation system.
Currently, there are two types of helicopters on Russian cruisers, destroyers, frigates and corvettes - the anti-submarine Ka-27PL and the search and rescue Ka-27PS, which do not have missile and cannon weapons and are not capable of carrying troops.

When guarding Russian territorial waters and the exclusive economic zone, as well as during anti-piracy operations, the crews of patrol ships will need to inspect various vessels and vessels. And if necessary, take them to the boarding. Ka-27PS and PL with such tasks to cope quite difficult. Especially if the enemy provides armed resistance. Unlike the Ka-29, these machines do not have weapons as well as armor. Thanks to the "twenty-ninth," the new patrol ships will become unique platforms for conducting special operations, sabotage actions and fighting enemy vessels in the coastal zone. Ka-29 will be able to covertly evacuate and evacuate spetsnaz groups. If necessary, they will support saboteurs with onboard armament fire.

- explained the military expert Prokhor Tebin.

The Ka-29 helicopter was developed and adopted at the beginning of the 1980's. In total, more than 60 machines were produced. At a speed of 235 km / h, the combat radius of the helicopter is about 600 km. The Ka-29 can carry anti-tank supersonic Ataka missiles, blocks of unguided C-8 missiles on four nodes. Also on board installed rapid-fire machine gun. At the beginning of the 2000-s, almost all Ka-29 were stored. But already in 2014-m the Navy decided to bring them back into service. Work was carried out on the overhaul of the rotor columns and helicopter engines.

      Will one helicopter make the ship a "unique platform"? Miracles in a sieve are direct. Normal countries have helicopter carriers for this.

          In fact, all these tasks lie on the ships of the coast guard of the FSB border service. As for me, the anti-submarine KA-27 would be more suitable for this project.

        Hmm .. So Russia, in your opinion, is an "abnormal country"?
        But I will not even argue. Go read the site rules - everything is written there.

      What? The fact that almost the BMP will wander around the sea-edge? In general, this decision suggests that the functions of the submarines of the patrol are reduced to zero. request

      By itself, ONE 27th, without proper equipment on its media will not give anything.

        Naturally not by itself. I meant that with a displacement of 1500 tons, it would be possible to make a good OVR ship for the Black and Baltic Seas. The project itself, of course, is not the best, the same 20380-86 is much better, but Zelenodolsk will not be able to build it. And from 11356 you yourself know what the situation is.

    It is not enough to put into operation helicopters from storage, it is necessary to make new helicopters, with new engines, with modern equipment, with the ability to operate at night, to use modern types of weapons.

    But then a counter question. And where are they going to plant saboteurs if they patrol the "coastal zone", moreover, their own, and not the enemy?

        ... so you can throw the fighters into the sea without flying up, they will swim where necessary, or those planning to go away to the rear ...

        And here by the way there is a pitfall. With one helicopter - dumb. Well, it will break down / sit down / be beaten to a state of not flying up. What to do next? If there are several helicopters, then you can pick up and leave. One is a big risk. Again, there is no cover.

      Ka-29 helicopters are already available at the Black Sea Fleet, this year another ten will undergo overhaul in Kumertau, and the Ka-27m will also be delivered this year to the Black Sea Fleet

    Why are you trifling. Let's get more global. Campaigns in Cuba. .
    And you must be told or written ??? Nak we say and write such that the ears are sometimes wrapped in a tube. It’s not fate to think and evaluate yourself?

    The ship is essentially PSKR. Designed for the border patrol service for the protection of territorial waters, patrolling the 200 miles exclusive economic zone in open and closed seas. All more or less serious weapons - exclusively optional. From the standard nomenclature of air defense weapons - on this boat - MANPADS "Igla". Pancake. Will tear everyone. what for this ship 8 launchers "Caliber" - probably only those who give this project "to the mountain" knows. As anti-ship - it is zero. Like anti-submarine - also zero. For “stuffing” at least two missions into 8 missile launchers means that you have nothing. Neither the PLO system, nor the shock functions. And now he will also plant saboteurs. For fuel it has an autonomy of 15 days. What seaworthiness is generally unknown

      Well, as I understand it, the calibers are there so that our "partners" realize that all of Europe, the Middle East, Japan and North Africa are shot from our territorial waters ... since when the ocean-going ships appear, hell knows ... the bug is small and smelly ...

        In short, we are either very rich to spend money on such "neither fish nor meat", or very "smart".

        Rudolf hi, but we have no other options. We build what we can and where we can. 22350 - North and Amber. 11356 - Amber. They have another question with turbines open. So it turns out that today we really can only build 20380 and RTOs, and 20380 - Yantar and Far East. Crimea is not yet ready for something serious.
        This miscellany with RTOs is not from a good life. This is a compromise to saturate the fleet with new ships and plants with orders. Pella and Zelenodolsk can only pull them.

            Wouldn't they be able to handle 20380?

            Technically, they would have done it, no doubt. 20380 with its dimensions would not have passed through inland waterways. And the Gulf after the Ukrainian devastation ..... Once upon a time, they built a tanker of 150 thousand, and now, God forbid, master 22160. Pella and Theodosius, sponsored by her, also have no experience in building large ships. In the Far East, the speed of construction is simply stunning ... That’s where Amber and Severnaya remain ...

    Everything just needs a justification for the resumption of serial production of the Ka-29, because the Mistral project flew by. And because the Ka-29 is a ship's helicopter, it also needs shipboard staff. And will he sit on this project or not, time will tell. The dimensions of the helicopter hangar and flight deck are standard for all ships and the dimensions of the Ka-27pl, 27ps and Ka-29 are the same. True, there is a nuance, the Ka-29 with its pylons folded very tightly enters the hangar. And check with the author of the TTX before printing. He has no radius of 600 km. This is the flight range
