Small ships with great potential

9
A mobile and strong fleet is a prerequisite for protecting the interests of Russia on the Baltic Sea. This region today can be considered an indicator of the qualitative state of the entire Russian Navy.


In 2015, the Baltic Fleet received two small missile ships, Zeleny Dol and Serpukhov, of project 21631. In just three years from the moment these ships were launched, they managed to launch missiles at terrorist positions in Syria, historical inter-naval passage and become shock ships.

However, "Green Dol" and "Serpukhov" are not going to stop there. They are preparing to go to sea to support landing operations and stand up for the most western frontiers of our state.

The host of the Polygon program of the T24 channel will not only see with his own eyes how military exercises are under way for the landing of naval assault forces on the unprepared coast, and will be able to carry out a training launch of Caliber missiles in conjunction with the sailors of Green Dole.

What is the uniqueness of small rocket ships (MRK), you will learn from the video.



"Green Dol" and "Serpukhov" are the 4-m and 5-m ships of the series "Buyan-M", built in the framework of the shipbuilding program of the Navy at the Zelenodolsk shipbuilding plant named after Gorky. The ships have an increased displacement and are equipped with the above-mentioned newest missile complex "Caliber-NK".

    RTOs are certainly good, but let's lay the frigates. I want two in 2019!

      Yes, many people probably want this, but alas, we are not in the Union and the military-industrial complex does not have past opportunities. Yes, and the shipyards need to build their own!

    RTOs are certainly good, but let's lay the frigates already. I want two pledged in 2019!

    Big frigates are a big target! You have to understand ...

      Large targets only go across the oceans, and these creep along the coast and their strength in the first strike, they are almost defenseless against aircraft. And the range of these ships is warm seas, and we have both the North and the Far East, we must understand ...

    And what is historical in the inter-naval transition? Well far away, but 3,5 thousand kilometers. But along the comfortable and well-equipped inland waterways. Pure pleasure. Steering yourself along the lines and enjoy the scenery.

    That's right, if there is no money and slipways, then small ones are the most.
    They’ll hide in a river under the shore, beat off from a helicopter or saboteurs, and you can kill Caliber and from the Crimea bay to Turkey.

    Crimea is not a river, you can't hide much there. And after the launch of the first "Caliber" - it's done, the ship itself turned into a target, but does such a boat need much? He, like our first "Hornets" and "Wasps", in the event of a serious war is intended only for the first salvo at the enemy, he is also the last. It's a pity, but that's exactly the case. And shooting at the Syrian barmaley "from around the corner" is not a reason for a serious assessment of this type.
    I remember the parades of ships in Sevastopol in the late seventies. Today is not the time, be they wrong. But it’s good that at least something else is being built at all. Although this is still not a special occasion for joy.

    Yes, they are rather weak .... and so everyone knows that. Why does he need 100 mm of fluff? Which came from the pure "Buyan". But Buyan is a means of artillery support for the landing, so 100 mm is the minimum that is needed to support the landing. And this, he will also support the landing? So that they could screw it up for 5-10 ATGMs? And according to the "law of the greatest mischief" right in the UKSK.? Generally "ersatz". For the navy, it is like "the fifth wheel in a cart", since it is not intended for sea combat. The Onyxes did not plan on him, from the strength of 3M54 ... the only mention of the use of the anti-ship missile system 3M54, is it in some overwritten year he blasted something on km 60 in the Caspian? About air defense / anti-aircraft defense in general, "I cry" ... You all know about seaworthiness too. So they should be welded to the pier in Tartus, Sevastopol and Baltiysk. Nobody will ever modernize them, and they will not put "Shell M" on it either ... Bo is expensive! VERY! Yes, and 8 3M14 does not mean much, in TNT sense, for striking an "incredibly / probable enemy. Trump blasted the airfield in Syria with 59 Tomahawks (analogs of 3M14) and CHE? And to us, even to provide such a strike without a resultant 7 Buyans And there are a lot of entikh airfields and other interesting targets in NATO ... And why are we going to build ships for each 3M14 at the rate of 1 billion rubles per cell? With the cost of Buyan M 27 billion rubles for three pieces ... And in short, nonsense!
