DKVP project 12322 "Bison" will be modernized


The military decided to improve the hovercraft. According to the plans of the Ministry of Defense, the DKVP "Mordovia" of the 12322 "Bison" project will be the first to modernize. In the course of improvement, the ship will receive modern navigation systems, it will update the armament, install new means of communication and control, as well as the latest automatic control system (ACS). The beginning and terms of modernization are not called.

In the early 1990s as part of the Naval fleet The USSR had eight DKVP Zubr, but after the collapse of the country, most of them went to Ukraine. Currently, the Russian Navy has two mdkvp project 12322 - "Mordovia" and "Eugene Kocheshkov", which are part of the Baltic Fleet.

At the end of July last year, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said that the state armament program until 2027 provides for the construction of air-cushion landing ships of the 12322 Zubr and 12061 Murena projects. Construction will be carried out at the Khabarovsk shipyard. According to him, this is not about units, but about a large order for the DKVP.

The hovercraft of Project 12322 of the Bison type has a length of 57 meters and a width of 20 meters. Displacement is 535 tons, draft - only 2 meters. It is equipped with high-temperature gas turbine engines that provide the ship with an air cushion thanks to four 2,5-meter propellers, and it is driven by three more propellers with a variable angle of attack and diameters of 5,5 meters. The ship is capable of speeds of 70 knots or 130 km / h. The Bison can land on 78% of the coast of the world without any preparation, although landing ships with opening nose ramps do this only on 14% of coastlines. The ship is capable of delivering three to the coast tank weighing up to 150 tons or 10 armored personnel carriers with marines. In addition to transporting troops, the ship can carry out the installation of minefields and provide fire support to the troops.

    A good thing for paratroopers, and modernization will only strengthen its power and strength.

      I doubt that he was tested for combat stability from anti-ship missiles, coastal artillery, aviation, UAVs, etc.

        Respected. ZUBR approaches the coast when the front line is cleared with the help of aviation and weapons of the Navy. His task is to deliver the first batch of marine corps to capture the bridgehead. Further to the shore, UDC is suitable. It is UDC that planted the bulk of the forces.

          Respected. RCC, aviation, UAVs can operate far from the coastline, so the Bison can reach the coast alive. And only infantry can completely clear the coastline. And so the artillery otvetka can fly.

            It appears so! In order to direct anti-ship missiles, radar facilities are needed on the shore. which are now spotted VERY QUICKLY. You can aim a missile at laser target designation, but for this you need a special forces group with such laser target designation. Given that the enemy DOES NOT KNOW the landing site, along the coast of 20-30 km long you do not run into the search for the landing site.
            Aviation and UAVs forget. In the landing zone will be surface ships with air defense. And the Bison will cover at least the cruiser of projects 1144 or 1164.

                And I’m chewing for you as a lesson. I see that there is nothing more to answer, since we have switched to insults.

                  ABOUT! Already there is no scream, and that’s good. Complain about the insults moder. He will punish me if there is anything. Do you seriously think that the enemy will stupidly wait until the ship group with the bison comes ?! It will be of course, if she has no reconnaissance satellites, aviation, navy, electronic warfare, UAVs of all sorts. But then this is the scenario of Guinea. I’m only afraid that the bison will not get there. I wonder where you really want to send the bison?

        I am not a techie, unfortunately ... in my opinion, ours are better in terms of performance. One speed difference of 20 knots ... is already a fat plus.
        I could be wrong ... but !!! As a Marine - I’ll say for sure, it’s quicker to reach the shore and enter the operational space, the dream of any Marine.

          The motto and dream of any Russian marines: "Where we are - there is victory!" and not what you think of yourself there.

                        mom was remembered
                        And it is very good that first of all she remembers Mom, only she with a pure soul helps always.
                        and you do not pass!
                        And I don’t need to pass on, I know what it is.

                        People’s opinions are formed, first of all, from the motto of the kind of troops where you serve. And when a person speaks for himself and is responsible for everyone at the same time, this is not good.

                        Not only does he have one tag on his shoulder straps, I doubt that he is an officer about whom you write, an officer would never fall below words of human dignity in words and insults and would always choose the right words. He expressed his opinions, I also expressed my opinions and corrected him, what was written a little incorrectly on his part and this is a normal phenomenon, these are comments and people express their opinions. And what’s the catch, of all this, they began to go straight into the profile and put the minuses, but this can’t be solved, since I showed you this in parallel and thereby showed your weakness.

    Yes, do not bother, people did not read it. About the motto was not about the dream was. good I myself am not a marine, but living in Kaliningrad and seeing with my own eyes how the landing on the coast takes place ... I am for the Bison. In any case, the coastal dune will easily pass. And there it is already possible to land troops. The only thing that bothers me is the cloud of spray. How does the radar react?

        Well, let’s say so, landing is in itself a difficult event. Difficulty begins immediately from the moment the movement of the landing assault warrant begins to move and is protected. DKVP also goes in the order and its speed in this case does not matter. But after air and artillery processing of the landing zone, yes, I agree, only the speed of the landing ship gives the marines a chance to seize the bridgehead until the enemy comes to his senses. But what if aviation and naval artillery did not completely crush the enemy defenses? The Bison approaches the shore, and here, from behind a hill, a lad with a shaitan pipe .... everything is always beautiful and colorful during exercises. In December of 93, at the request of Comrade Clinton, Mr. Yeltsin ordered to save his bosom friend Shevarnadze from evil Abkhazians. The MDK-93 urgently left Sevastopol with the senior on board brigade commander, 197th Captain, Maximov. The noise of a suitable Bison alarmed Abkhaz dzhigits, who decided that a helicopter had been sent for Edik. Abkhazians opened heavy fire from all that was. After the second attempt, the marines rebelled, the clanging of bullets inside the ship gave a small pleasant sensation, the black berets were reassured only that Maximov had only pretexts in the Russian literary in his speech.
        Although, according to the results of the wholesale exercises and the exercises of 1985, the MDCWP showed their best! During the Shield-88 exercises, he himself observed the landing of the DShG from Orca and how a peaceful Bulgarian tractor driver, having heard the noise and seeing a water ball from the sea side, threw his tractor to hell and at a decent speed he sniffed wherever they looked! laughing

    They have a different purpose. "Bison" - independent DKVP, intended for the delivery of landings in coastal operations, and LCAC are intended for landing with UDC and DKVD and are imprisoned for placement on them. The Chinese, believe me, "sucked" from both projects to the maximum.

    Why do the Chinese need a huge "Bison" if they have boat carriers - DVKD and UDC? For the Chinese, the DKVP is an auxiliary means for transporting equipment and aircraft between the base ship and the coast, and not an independent landing ship, as we have.

      They would have to increase the range. After all, 300 NM, as I understand it, is a technical range, not a combat radius. And from Crimea to the most remote points of the World Cup (Istanbul and the Georgian coast) 200-300 NM. To get back from both points, you need to keep a tanker nearby. And taking into account possible deviations and maneuvering in place, the radius is still reduced.

      Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said that the state armament program until 2027 provides for the construction of air-cushion landing ships of projects 12322 Zubr and 12061 Murena. Construction will be carried out at the Khabarovsk shipyard.


      Where did you see that the modernization of 2 Teeth built in the 90s is instead of what is provided for by the state rearmament program until 2027?

      Look at the construction site of the Bison and Muren. They are made in the Far East. I suppose that it is precisely to strengthen the defense of the Kuril Islands.

      And to modernize those that will be somewhere closer in the Baltic, they will simply be brought to the modern level.

      Such a ship Javelin as an elephant grains. Such a ship can only be destroyed by an anti-shipable rocket and it will probably take several hits.

      The bison is a landing ship, it carries landing on the other side, and does not capture the coast, previously this area is captured and cleaned up by other forces specially designed for this.

      The advantages of this ship are speed and the ability to land troops with equipment on a large number of coastal areas.

      Such ships, and even at the Pacific Fleet, we need. To send, as they say now, the signal to Japan - our islands and we will fight for them.

      Bison will be able to quickly send reserves to the Kuril Islands and pick up the wounded.

      Yes, and mines and torpedoes to such a ship are not likely to be scared, but it actually turns out above the water surface flies on an air cushion, and does not sail.

      He would have another type of Shell-M air defense, a couple on the sides, so that at least some chance was to repel a missile attack. On the previous Bison only MANPADS were, now this does not protect the ship.

    In 90 they took Firefly next to such a Bison, it’s been inside a couple of times. They asked the boys (conscripts) like a pepelats, they answered like nothing but the officers hang themselves - at low speed the Bison does not turn anywhere, it’s easier to land a spaceship than to moor in a regular port (it’s probably easier to park), these are not my words. Maybe the autopilot was not configured and was not finalized, all the same, 2 or 3 boats in a row, or did not learn how to steer correctly yet - I don’t know, but it was like that. He also does not have seaworthiness, only for calm seas, which 78% and which smokers - forget it.
    And so glad of course that old friends still live and serve.

      You do not grind nonsense.

      Seaworthiness on a hovercraft ?!

      You take a look at the speed of this ship - 130 km / h !!!

      Here is his trump card, he doesn’t have to go around the world, but throw a company of motorized rifles or tanks from one place to another.

      From Sakhalin to the Kuril Islands 500 km, the Bison will cover this distance in 4 hours !!!

      Which ship to handle better and faster ?!

      Moreover, the Bison can load and unload a company of motorized rifles, marines or tanks from any part of the coast to any part of the coast, rather than rowing along the armored troop-carrier from the BDK. He does not need a port or a berth or special loaders.

      Bison is essentially autonomous and very fast ferry.

      And among other things, I suppose that the Bison on an air cushion is not afraid of any mines or torpedoes of the enemy, as it essentially flies above the water, and torpedoes and mines so far seem to not jump out of the water and their speed is more modest.

      Well, poor handling at low speed is bad due to the fact that it is driven by air flow and this is a feature of all ships of this type. In general, there are tugs in the port to moor.

      The bison is a unique ship, and at certain points it is indispensable and Russia needs it both in the Baltic, the Black Sea Fleet and the Pacific Fleet.

    Everything that floats or walks in water has seaworthiness, for example, an ekranoplane will not, for example, go on a shaving storm over a 9-point storm, this Bison also needs calm weather of 2-3 points (I don’t really know how much) the slightest change in the worse side, the rain has started or the wind strength has changed and the wave has increased, all the Bison is standing - non-flying weather. Such ships are suitable for the Baltic, Black Sea and Caspian; I doubt it for the rest.

    I read about how good this boat is and I admire it ... and then I thought: Cruising range 300 miles. It's like a range of 150 miles ... And where and where are we going to swim? Where to land and why? The Black Sea comes to mind, but there is no one to capture the Turks except ... And in general, who imagines a naval operation with a landing force and 150 miles from its shores in the foreseeable future?

      The devil knows him. The military knows best. Why do they build them. Opinions were put forward on refueling these vehicles on the march. Why not? Dviglo will be a new, more economical, again a bonus. Range will grow without options. Now TTX shows a sample of the eighties.
      Again, what is hidden under the letter M-I personally do not know. Maybe there the pontoon was doubled in size! And what exactly is the fuel in it?!. The devil knows him. When we respect the construction, then we will understand that, why, hockey with the ball (as one of our welders says).

    Seen close in Crimea in 80's, impressive. It seems they were going to resume production at the beginning of the 2020's, but so far, silence.
