British Navy replenished with the first patrol ship of the River Batch 2 type


The new patrol ship HMS Forth “registered” in the naval base of Portsmouth, and at the end of the year can go on the first combat patrol in the region of the Falkland Islands.

Batch 2 - the second batch of ships built by the River. The first (Batch 1) consisted of four ships built between 2002 and 2006 a year. The patrol ships of the second batch have larger sizes and improved handling characteristics, as well as more powerful weapons than their predecessors from the Batch 1 series.

The length of the River Batch 2 is 90 m, width is 13 m, displacement is 2000 t. Patrols can reach speeds in 24 knots (44 km / h), their autonomy is 35 days, their range is over 5000 miles. Each of the ships is armed with an 30-mm automatic cannon and two large-caliber machine guns, the crew consists of a 34 man. In addition, on board there is a platform for a helicopter of the Merlin type, as well as two Pacific 24RIB speed boats.

    The adversary is under construction, under construction ... It will be necessary to take into account ..

      Seven shallows under the keel. Amine.

      They shaved shaving ... and when it was a great maritime empire. Well, if you consider how the Anglo-Saxons shot off in Syria ...

      By the way, look at how fast they build submarines. And then some whine about the construction of ours.


      And compare with what speed they built before. This is for fans to compare Russia and the Soviet Union.

    Something completely liquid weapons for such a displacement. Even if the patrol. At least SeaRAM delivered.

      It depends on what tasks will be set for this ship. Well, the possibility of modernization .. What is laid there, what opportunities

          If to protect ships, for example, from pirates, then yes this is enough. But in any case, air defense will definitely not hurt him, the level of similar ships in the class of other fleets.

          for comparison, our TFR, etc. 11351 for the FSB, is much more powerful

      His tasks do not imply a war with someone more serious than the Shaheedbots and the Pirates.

      The domestic counterparts (Bykov) have an 1x76mm gun (but it’s tasteful, the base offered 57mm A-220, but the Navy refused to finance its refinement and testing, so they inserted the good old AK-176M) + 2 MTPU turrets (from the British turret on the remote control - this is the gold standard for ships against pirates / martyrs - so that the calculation does not resolve with a stray bullet / blast wave, Bykov has ordinary turrets with calculations, even without reservations, as with remote American turrets).

    Our 22160 in comparison with this is direct well, if not a battleship, then a cruiser for sure! bully
    Something completely liquid weapons for such a displacement. Even if the patrol.
    Well, it is quite comparable with the FSB mi of project 22460, but our 630 tons and
    Cruising range 3500 miles at 12 knots. Autonomy of swimming is 60 days. The crew is 24 people.
    True, the Ka-226 pinwheel cannot be compared with Merlin, but it is not oceanic - it’s really littoral ..... coastal navigation.

      we still have several types of TFR projects: 11540 (2), 1135 (1), 1135M (1), 11351 (2), 11356 (3), 20380 (7), 22160 (2), 11661 (2) 20

        You interfere with everything.
        Wise + Terrible (when it dawns, if it dawns) - these are quite oceanic ships, according to the western classification 100% are frigates, and almost destroyers in terms of displacement.
        1135 / M / 1 is a cross between a corvette and a frigate in the west. Part of it is for the defense of the sea zone from submarines, part for patrolling.
        11356 are full-fledged frigates.
        20380 - corvettes, ships of the near sea zone.
        22160 - where are their 2 from? Or honestly - 0. Or not fair - 1. Or 6 - by the number of contracts.
        11661 - generally specific ships for the Caspian. Rather, the head moved forward as an OVR corvette - but in the end, everything superfluous was cut off from it because it is not necessary in the Caspian. Dagestan is a completely different ship with the UKKS, a different composition of weapons, energy, and even external contours.

        Most of what you wrote (with the exception of 11351 - which is built for border guards in the ocean zone, so that as Americans have 22160 + and possibly Caspians) - it makes sense to compare it with the 23 type.
