The small missile ship Smerch of the 12341 project (code "Gadfly"), which underwent modernization at the Kamchatka Northeast Repair Center, conducted the first firing from the anti-ship complex Uran. X-35’s RCC launch video was posted by the Department of Defense on its YouTube channel.


A video of the first launch of the X-35 anti-ship missile from the Smerch RTO appeared on the Web


RTO "Smerch", which received Uranus systems with anti-ship missiles (ASM) X-35 instead of the already obsolete heavy P-120 "Malachite", carried out the first firing from the updated complex. Shooting took place at a marine training ground in the waters of the Sea of ​​Japan, launched from the ship of the anti-ship missile X-35 hit a drifting target at a distance of over 50 kilometers. Earlier, the MRK successfully fired from the new ship-based universal 76-mm automatic gun AK-176MA and the upgraded 30-mm six-barreled automatic ship artillery AK-630.

RTO Smerch undergoes factory sea trials after modernization, during which the updated RTO received 16 anti-ship missiles X-35 instead of the previous six P-120 Malachite (two quad installations from each side). They also installed modern communication systems, radar, fire control systems and the new ship-based universal 76-mm automatic gun AK-176MA.

The Smerch small missile ship of Project 12341 Gadfly was laid down on November 16, 1981 at the Vladivostok Shipyard, launched on November 16, 1984, entered service on December 30, 1984, and was included fleet March 4, 1985. Prior to modernization, he was armed with 6 P-120 Malakhit cruise missile defense missiles in 2 launchers of the KT-120 type, Osa-M self-defense air defense systems, a 76,2-mm single-barrel AK-176 artillery system, and a 30-mm AK- 630M.

Full displacement - 730 tons, maximum speed - 34 node, autonomy -10 days. Crew - 64 person.

    On each of the fleets, 1 ship is made to launch target missiles at the Uranus base. For the KFL and the Black Sea Fleet, they are completing the construction of two "Lightnings", for the Pacific Fleet, the "Smerch" was modernized. Because the Navy needs something to replace the old missile boats with the Termit anti-ship missile system, which are now used as targets for training anti-aircraft firing. Yes, and a carrier of light anti-ship missiles for the destruction of minor targets will not hurt. I found a photo of a model of a Project 12418 missile boat on the Internet. Replacing the Mosquito missile system with a more compact Uranus with an increase in the number of missiles from 4 to 8 allowed increasing the boat's superstructure, which now runs from side to side. I would like to see him on the go.

      The small missile ship Smerch has recently undergone modernization, significantly increasing its strike capabilities. Now, instead of 6, the Malachite missiles have 16 Uranus on it. Unification is underway with the rearmament of as many carriers on x35 as possible. There are ships, planes, Ball, and helicopters. In general, a lot where x35 will be put.

        Was this completed by the marine version of the X-35U with a range of 260 km? Previously, only the aviation version of the X-35U flew 260 km, and the marine version of the X-35U 160 km. Do I understand correctly?

        hi This is of course all great, but we are presented with news about modernization, as about launching at least a destroyer on the water.
        3 RTOs of this series in Algeria. The first Algerian RTOs, held in 1999 - 2000 repair, modernization and re-equipment in St. Petersburg under the project 1234EM became Salah Reis.
        The modernization project, which received the number 1234EM, was developed at Almaz Central Design Bureau under the supervision of Yu. V. Arsenyev, Chief Designer. The project had significant differences from its prototype. The outdated P-20 missile launcher was replaced by four quad launchers with 16 Uran-E anti-ship missiles. Anti-aircraft weapons reinforced six-barrel 30-mm AU AK-630M, located in the aft superstructure, instead of the Rangout radar, the Harpoon-E radar complex antenna was installed on the roof of the cabin, and the positive coordinate three-coordinate radar of the Positive-ME type, the Laska weapon control radar, and the optical-electronic system were installed on the mast fire control artillery "Racurs" and the radio navigation system "Horizon-25".

        In October 2007 years Under the same project, the modernization of the second Algerian RTOs and the third year of the next year were launched at the Severnaya Verf shipyard.
        In 2017, taking into account developments on the project 1234EM, created by order of the Navy of Algeria, in the Pacific Fleet, an experiment began on the modernization of domestic RTOs of project 1234.
        How long will the modernization of another 11 units last?
        I drew attention to the timing of the modernization of Algerian products. Who prevented our admirals from ordering the repair and modernization of Russian ships in 2010-2014, when the country was "bathed" in petrodollars and there were no Western sanctions? hi

      And the Belarusian defense industry is "not shy about" modernizing the "Wasp"
      Taking into account all modern trends in the improved combat vehicle, the noise immunity of electronic systems was improved, the combat capabilities of the target tracking and missile sighting station were increased, which made it possible to more effectively detect, track and destroy small targets, including unmanned aerial vehicles. Improvements affected about 70% of the standard electronic equipment of a combat vehicle. The limit indicators for the detection range of air objects by electronic air defense systems were significantly improved - up to 52,5 kilometers. The error in determining the range to the target was not more than 35 m, and the error in determining the target azimuth was 0,15 degrees. According to objective control, the deviation from the target was about 1,5 m.

      Why not enter into cooperation and numb?

        The trouble with the "OSA" air defense system is one-channel. At RTOs "Smerch" -16 flares. The enemy counterpart has no less. The plane can carry 2-4 Harpoons. A couple of planes is already critical.

You probably also have a 286 computer with a monochrome screen and a Sotelow cell phone? No? It means something modern.

        Without AWACS and missiles with ARLGSN 400 km of maximum range S-400 turn into 40-50 km - when working on targets on the MV and PMV. And US planes, when attacking a target covered by air defense systems, choose just small and criminally low altitudes.

          Already developed new equipment that allows our aircraft to issue full target designation, as from a satellite. So far only on the MiG-31, but installing it on any of our aircraft is not a problem - there would be equipment. And the MiG-31 with 20m, yes, it sees ....

            So, the range of this coastal air defense for targets in the MV and PMV is 50 km. And without ARLGSN on missiles, an over-the-horizon central missile defense system needs an air defense system like an umbrella fish. What is the use of target marks on VIKO at ranges of 100-200-300 km, if the radar of the division does not see the target, cannot be taken for tracking and cannot be highlighted either, because for it this target is beyond the radio horizon?

              So this is the network-centric, that target designation will produce more advanced equipment. An example in Syria is when the S-400 radar gives target designation to the older S-300s.

                Once again: target designation is not aiming. Target designation is the issuance of information to the division "such and such goals with such and such altitude, course and speed"The result is a picture on VIKO, from which the general situation around the division is visible.
                To launch a missile launcher without ARLGSN it is necessary to detect the target using the radar of the division itself and take it for support.

                And the plane is simpler: it has anti-ship missiles with ARLGSN, and it only needs targeting (AWACS, RTR) to launch it, then the missile launcher will find a target when it enters the area. It is not necessary for the aircraft to direct the anti-ship missiles using radar.
                For over-the-horizon shooting at an unobservable radar target, ARLGSN is needed - for both SAM and anti-ship missiles. RCC has it. But for the majority of missiles - either RCGS or semi-active GOS, for the operation of which the radar of the division itself must see the target.

                  Of course, this boat should be under the guise of aviation .... although 1-2 missiles of the X-35 type should be intercepted ... the same Monsoon did hit 2 missiles from the front sight more than once ... just a target at the base the RCC was very thick even without warheads — it did not explode and flew by inertia.

      The fact is that AUG planes simply do not fit the distance of a shot at a boat, thanks to coastal air defense. And the boat simply will not let the enemy’s ships closer than 250 km from the coast.

    And the Belarusian defense industry is "not shy about" modernizing the "Wasp"

    Namesake! To modernize the ground-based complex or even rearrange it from one chassis to another is not a big deal. It is more difficult to carry out such an upgrade on a ship. It does not rearrange from one chassis to another. Alteration of the entire ship will be required. The cellar with ammunition is below deck. And this means it must be opened and the whole filling changed. Plus radar systems, plus a control system, cable routes and more. Most likely, alteration to a new anti-aircraft complex would be very expensive

    You probably also have a 286 computer with a monochrome screen and a Sotelow cell phone?

    From the bourgeois, ah! Yes, the 286th eishka was considered for happiness at one time! smile
    But the EC1840 with a pair of 5,25 "flops and without a hard drive is just that. And for the majors - IBM PC XT. Naturally, with a monochrome display (black and white, amber-black and green-black).
    And generally speaking:
    640 KB should be enough for everyone.

    Yes, there was a time, Alexey! I went to work in the budget sphere in the year 92093, and since I had run into a PC anyway, I was sent to Moscow for a computer. The organizations allocated either 386 or 486 DX40. Screw 20 megabytes, memory - 2 or 4 KB (EMNIP). Now the most shabby phone has dozens of memory, they didn’t eat hundreds of times as much as the operational one. 5,25 and 2,5 inch floppy disks. And nothing. They made brochures and newspapers on them ... laughing
