RTOs of the 1234 “Gadfly” project will be armed with “Uranium”

39
In the 2018, the Russian Navy will receive three upgraded small rocket ships of the 1234 Ovod project with increased firepower at once, according to News.




According to a newspaper citing the Navy’s commander’s chief, the military department is implementing a large-scale program for the deep modernization of the most massive Russian interregional missile systems, project 1234 “Gadfly”. Next year, sailors will receive the first three updated ships: two for the Pacific fleet and one for the Black Sea. Further modernization will be carried out by all those who are in the ranks of the “Gadgets”.

“The update affects almost all key RTO systems. They get new, more economical and powerful engines, modern fire control and more efficient weapons. The main caliber of the Ovods is replaced - the Uran systems with the X-35 anti-ship missiles (ASM) are being installed instead of the obsolete heavy Malachite P-120, ”the newspaper writes.

It is reported that "X-35 designed to destroy the ships of average displacement; their distinguishing feature is their small size and relatively low cost combined with high combat capabilities. ” The updated “Gadgets” will carry up to the 16 RCC instead of the previous six (two quad installations from each side). With the power of the volley, veterans will surpass even the latest 20380 project corvettes.

In addition, the Osa-M anti-aircraft missile system will be upgraded.

These are successful ships, and sailors like them, but we need modern weapons. Missiles "Malachite" have long been outdated, and "Uranus" - a modern long-range system. Our industry already has experience in upgrading the 1234 RTO project for the Algerian Navy. The scheme is well developed. As a result of the modernization, the combat power of the “Gadflies” will grow 2,5 times,
told the newspaper military expert Dmitry Boltenkov.

He suggested that the updated "Gadfly" will both protect the coast of Russia, and act in the Mediterranean.

This is, in fact, a well-armed rocket boat, and after modernization it will be able to work on targets on land. Initially, the 1234 project was intended for operations in the near-sea zone. In Soviet times, they were also actively used in the Mediterranean as a sort of "fly swatter for aircraft carriers",
added Boltenkov.

Today, the Russian Navy has more than a dozen of the Ovod MRKs.

      Although, pr.1234, if not alone, is a serious problem for partners. Again, Tartus needs to be filled in with something, and we have far from an excess for bases on our own territory.

      Well, I don’t know, I don’t know if Uranus is able to compete with the Mosquito. All the same, the Mosquito is supersonic, the speed of the 2.5M rocket and the mass of 4.5 tons. And Uranus is a subsonic mass of only 600 kilograms. At the same time, the ranges are approximately similar. Most likely, they plan to write off the old 1234 old people, and such an upgrade is cheaper and seems to be a temporary measure, years on 5-6, until they are configured in sufficient quantities.

        The Americans, as it were, subsonic harpoons use and do not blow, as their promising missiles are also subsonic, and given the range of 260 km and the fact that the last 40 km missile flies at an altitude of 3-5 meters, the volley will become a problem for puddles Baltic, Black or Mediterranean

      Interestingly, and the sea "carapace" will fit into the place of the "Wasp"? Or two "shells" - subject to the dismantling of the "Wasp", AK-176 and AK-630M?

        Instead of a Wasp - completely. In the stern - it is doubtful. In theory, in the stern you can shove some thread Bending in addition to 630M.

        But the price. And physical availability. And also the firing / capture angles. Not really. Obviously, they limited themselves to a small modernization of the complex itself - I did not hear that a new missile / highly updated missile was prepared. That is, most likely a new combat post with computers and panels will be delivered, perhaps the hardware itself will be upgraded - which is possible.

        In theory, it should. I once saw the under-deck room for the zurka Os (on a steamboat with my nickname) - not small. Another thing is that a stability problem can come out.
        And the gun, I think, is better to leave, especially if there are UAS.

      But will the 1234 combat patrol zone not be covered by the main forces of the air defense missile defense? As far as I understand, we are not talking about autonomous navigation and separation from the main forces of the fleet. And in this case, to overload the ship ... why actually?

      the “atomic train” is actually made in paper (if we are talking about “Barguzin”), but there is still not enough money for everything ... It’s a pity, of course, but as far as I understand, our leadership considers many local wars as the main danger on the borders with Russia and in the zone of our national interests, and there the dispute cannot be resolved with strategic missiles. In general, the strategic nuclear forces (strategic nuclear forces) are the forces of Doomsday, they are not for dismantling at the operational-tactical level.

    Why use the partially obsolete anti-ship missiles Uranus, where you can use the more serious anti-ship missiles Onyx ?! Again, they save on the Russian armies in order to give Uzbekistan another 12 Mi-35 helicopters, to the detriment of the Russian Federation ?!

      Obviously because:
      - OCD has already been completed in the amount of 50% + due to a foreign customer.
      - the platform itself is more adapted to light rockets.
      - X-35 have an undeniable price advantage. The purpose of this boat is not to stab the formed AUG / KUG in the ocean zone, but to work on all kinds of corvettes-frigate paratroopers. For which the X-35 is quite enough for itself, and due to the large salvo, it is even preferable.

        Onion missiles were experimentally used on these missile defense systems, so the platform is quite suitable for them. A large salvo, this is not bad, but the speed of the rocket, its range and the size of the warhead also matter, and Onyx is better than Uranus

          12347 stood almost under our windows. So PU, however, covered with tarpaulin, could observe personally. Then it seemed that a year or two more and they would start to rivet. For me, 2X6 Onyxes are incomparably better than 4X4 Uraniums.

      I agree that 8 Onyxes instead of 16 Uranus would be a serious argument, but here, apparently, our naval commanders are counting on a joint salvo, Onyxes from the Bastion, Uraniums from RTOs from coastal waters

    It is difficult to call Uranus a replacement for Malachite. It's like comparing a gun with a howitzer. Malachite weighs 5,4 tons, warhead 800 kg, special warhead 2 megatons. In one salvo of an RTO, not even with a special warhead, it’s quite possible to send an aircraft carrier to the bottom. Uranus itself rocket 0,6 tons, warhead 145 kg. The only advantage, only the launch range, and even then only with the X-35U.

      But low radar visibility and low flight altitude are not advantages? Enormous sizes have more minuses

      there is no special warhead for the Malachites now, Malachite flies at an altitude of 60 meters, it is under them that the air defense of NATO ships is sharpened, in addition, the missiles are morally outdated in terms of electronic filling ..

    Additionally, in this modernization, it was planned to replace the MP-123 Vympel control system with the MP-123-02 / 3 Bagira-M control system, which will sharply improve the quality of the AK-176 and AK-630M firing control. It’s just not clear in which configuration option, full or abbreviated (with or without AFAR).

    It is hard to see in the picture, but the 6-barreled Onyx complex protrudes beyond the dimensions. It's strange that no one notices this. Take a look at the old modifications. "Malachite" has a diameter of 0,8 m. The second floor of the superstructure protrudes above the first and rests against the upper launch container, which is displaced by half a diameter in relation to the lower ones. Thus, the width of the side between the upper part of the superstructure and the edge of the side is 1,5 times the diameter of the Malachite container + 15-20 cm. This is less than one and a half meters. In this space can be placed a block of 2x2 containers of "Uranus", whose missiles are 0,43 m in diameter, i.e. the block will be about 1 meter wide. And "Onyx" has a diameter of 0,67 m. Those. only a 2x2 block will fit into the dimensions, although it may not fit by a couple of centimeters. While the "Nakat" was used purely as a springboard for the development of "Onyx", the oversize was not critical. But serial ships can approach the quay walls much higher than the side and here it will no longer work. Another question: what is better for such a kid OVR - 6 (8) Onyx or 16 "Uranus"?
