New ships project 22160 in Novorossiysk

A picture of the first patrol ships of the 22160 project, previously towed to Novorossiysk from the Zelenodolsk plant to them. Gorky for passing factory and state tests, reports bmpd.

The lead ship of the series “Vasily Bykov” has been undergoing factory running tests since May 2018, the second one - “Dmitry Rogachev” - is still demagnetized (towed to Novorossiysk in August).

"Vasily Bykov" was founded at the Zelenodolsk plant in 2014 year. In August, the 2017 was launched. In November of the same year, it was towed for completion at the Kerch Zaliv plant (under the control of the Zelenodolsk plant). From there in May 2018 was towed to Novorossiysk. It was planned to transfer to the customer in 2017 year, but the term was not met. May be delivered before the end of this year.

The ship was built under a contract with the Ministry of Defense of April 2014. And in October, the 2014-th military department issued a contract to the Zelenodolsk plant to build an 5 patrol ships of the 22160 project.

The first serial ship was the "Dmitry Rogachev", preparing today in Novorossiysk for the passage of factory tests. It was laid out in the 2014 year and launched at the end of the 2017 year.

The main distinctive feature of the ships is a modular assembly. Earlier it was reported that all or several corvettes of this series were armed with 3М54 rocket complexes (“Caliber-NK” family).

    "Caliber" will not hurt him of course. Even small patrol ships in the coastal zone with Calibers can deliver a lot of hemorrhoids to enemy ships

        They belong to reserve ships and must be armed for N times. Almost all PSKR built in the USSR had basic places for the installation of weapons.

          Well, this at least explains everything more or less. And then the desire to stick calibers into everything that can contain it can already frighten)))

            There is a modular architecture, like a container like. You can caliber, you can air defense in the same sizes.

                The main thing is where will the crew members trained in handling these modules be stored? smile
                Actually, this is the main disadvantage of modularity - without constant training on the module installed on the ship, the crew loses its skills.

          So project 22160 is not PSKR. These are naval patrol ships, not office ones.
          And, in theory, all weapons should be installed on them at once - so that later the crew does not scratch their heads "and what is it?"

        No reason. Apparently there are none, 22160 calibers. However, the fleet will have the opportunity to re-equip these ships with calibers in a menacing period.

    No air defense, no normal art, no SAC. Can anyone explain to me why these tubs are needed at all? But their seaworthiness should be even higher than the same Karakurt: 1500 tons versus 800. But these 20380 tons are absolutely empty, and this is, for a second, a displacement comparable to a small corvette. Not a ship, but a complete imbalance, and if before XNUMX some of the local inhabitants considered it not quite rationally armed, I congratulate, our Defense Ministry was able to surprise us. Someone will object: "Modularity! Then everything will be completed." And I will answer: when did something happen in our country afterwards? And the experience of our American partners shows that maintaining infrastructure on the coast with everything necessary for such a wunderwuffle is much more expensive than an ordinary warship, which is used to carrying everything with itself. Not a single caliber with my own eyes ...
    If you really needed a normal ship, why not continue the Vietnamese Cheetah series? By the way, the principle of modularity can also be extended to them, albeit more locally. Gloomy Russian genius, or no less gloomy Russian cut and so small means.

      According to the official classification, this "patrol ship" was originally planned to "scare pirates" in a known area (so as not to drive more expensive ones like 1155 and 11540 there). Now (in the light of the changed geopolitics) he is charged (retroactively) with somewhat different tasks. 22160 can be used as support ships for our special operations forces in the DMZ, not in border countries, where the Raptor and BK-16 cannot be reached.
      1. Radar stealth (stealth technology of the hull), because to fight pirates on motorboats, this is a show-off, but at night a jerk to approach the shore with weak border control, go into territorial waters, drop off / pick up a group - that's it.
      2. High speed of the ship itself. Moreover, the ability to maintain maximum speed for a long time (according to the chief designer of the ship in the movie military acceptance). Why to fight against pirates on boats for a long period (day, two) rush at maximum speed?
      3. A regular landing assault boat with a ramp in its nose for landing on shore, but absolutely unnecessary in the open sea for assaulting a ship captured by pirates. Why to fight against pirates, a high-speed means of delivering a sabotage and reconnaissance group to an unequipped coast?
      4. A very large, even for a large combat NK, in terms of size and capabilities medical unit at 22160 Ave. With the ability to have as many 2 operating tables.
      Here is such a cruise yacht with a gun in the military style (autonomy of 60 days) wink . You can go to tuna, crab and pirate. drinks

        This is not air defense. This is a means of psychological reassurance of the crew: MANPADS on turrets with a range of less than the launch range of even ATGM from a helicopter.

        In general, out of 22160, a good PSCR of the far zone would have turned out - instead of border 11351. But why is it naval?

            At 22160 sediment under three and a half meters - where should he drive a mosquito fleet? And the autonomy of 60 days for the World Cup is a little redundant.
            But weapons, even to disperse the mosquito fleet, 22160 is not enough.

    Without a normal air defense, there is not much sense in this ship for the fleet. at least a "Dagger" or a sea "Shell" with a normal amount of ammo. About "Calm", which they threatened to install as many as 24 pieces, I generally keep quiet, as always, nothing.

    22160 - this is the first ship in the history of the Russian Navy, created specifically to combat the pirates. In stock hangar for special forces helicopter, compartment for unusual weapons of combat divers. In addition, submersible dock, where is Project 02800 assault landing boat - a small armored boat, which has no analogues in the world, it can go into battle directly during movement (it can send a group of marines to inspect a suspicious vessel and, if necessary, cover them with fire.)

    Navigation radar station "Pal-N" The roof-top add-on is used to scan, detect, identify and track air or ground targets. Radar detection system "Positive-ME1". In addition, the corvette is equipped with technical means for tracking divers-saboteurs, submarines and torpedoes, which makes it indispensable for guarding larger ships.

    In the stern there is a place for the installation of a vertical launch unit for missiles of the Kalibr and Onyx families, as well as for the Gibka or Shtil-1 anti-aircraft missile systems.

    22160: can guard territorial waters and naval bases, patrol a 200-mile exclusive economic zone, escort civilian vessels and hit all types of ground, surface and air targets.
