Three “Gadgets” for Pacific Fleet: Ministry of Defense orders modernization of three more RTOs


The deputy head of the military department Aleksey Krivoruchko visited the Northeast Repair Center in Vilyuchinsk (SVRC), where he said that the military department had decided to modernize an additional batch of three RTOs of the 1234 Ovod project for the Pacific Fleet. The work will take place at the SEC, the service life of the ships will be extended by eight years, followed by an extension of another eight years after factory repair.

Today we are working with the enterprise on the issue of upgrading the 1234 series of missile defense systems, we are talking about three such ships. According to its results, their service life will be extended by eight years with the possibility of extending it for another eight years after factory repair

- he said.

Earlier, the Naval Infrastructure Center has already modernized one of the XRMX Smerch missile systems, during which instead of the outdated heavy P-1234 Malachite, the Uranium complex with anti-ship missiles (ASM) X-120 was installed on the ship. The updated “Gadfly” carries 35 anti-ship missiles instead of the previous six (two quad installations from each side). In addition, MRK received modern fire control systems, radar stations and communication systems, as well as a new generation AK-16MA artillery mount.

Krivoruchko also noted that next year the Ministry of Defense will sign a contract for the repair of the atomic submarine of the Tomsk project 949А (Antey), with the completion of the repair and transfer of its Pacific Fleet in the 2021 year. Work will also be carried out in Vilyuchinsk. What work is planned on the submarine, he did not explain.

    Japan has many ships, and we have few. So you need a lot of rockets. Approve!

    In total, 64 missiles, and previously there were 24
    Decent modernization.

        He counted 4 RTOs (with previously upgraded) and not 3 pieces.

        Comrade did not explain a bit, for the 949A "Tomsk" project, instead of the P-700 Granit anti-ship missiles, there were 24 missiles, it seems that three missiles were assembled in PU type, Onyx, Caliber, Zircon. A total of 72 pieces.
        But for four RTOs, just 64 anti-ship missiles "URAN"

          Are you sure that Tomsk will be modernized under UKKS instead of PU for Granite? There is not a word about this in the article. And most importantly, the repair period from 2020 to 2021 is alarming. If this is true, then there can be no talk of any modernization. Only current repairs will be carried out to restore the boat systems with an extension of its life. I really want to be mistaken, but the repair dates speak of this. We will wait for the next year, then we will find out for sure.

            And that is true. Moreover, repairs will be carried out in Velyuchinsk. Although, if in Velyuchinsk under 949 the project prepared the entire rem. Base, I won’t be surprised. There seems to be dry docks.

              It is precisely that for such serious work there are no conditions, no specialists, no equipment. Everything will be limited to restoring serviceability, extending the service life by several years and then writing off in view of the complete deterioration of all boat systems.

              Since 2013, the Irkutsk nuclear submarine in Bolshoi Kamen has undergone modernization for Caliber, but has not yet been commissioned.

            it will force .. "Granites" do not produce anymore, those that are not possible to extend the service life indefinitely ..

              Does that dreadnought have many chances against even one RTO?

                But I don’t even know. If they knew in advance what kind of target they were attacking and would send a missile to hit the deck, they would most likely have drowned the battleship, and if they had hit it on board, I think they would have been surprised by a 12 dm projectile. On the other hand, the Dreadnought with its 20 nodes would not have caught up with the MRC, and its shells would have passed right through without detonating, unless it would have got into some kind of node, like an engine or an anchor winch.

                  Arthur ... artillery range up to 50km ... What volley? Yes, even if it was a volley ... how many hits did Bismarck get with very heavy shelling for several hours?

                    Now you can't even joke. It is clear that the only chance for an artillery ship is to suddenly come out of the "corner" at a distance of 15 kilometers. Unless, of course, they come up with a fundamentally new armor capable of repelling bombs / missiles. (but this is unlikely)
                    But this does not mean that a tiny boat needs to be repaired for a year. And then from the press reports it seems that our ships are like combines in the village: they work two weeks a year, and 50 weeks after that they are repaired.

      Missiles would be better. They should be added to the speed, because one of the numbers of missiles in the salvo, given the possibilities of accumulated air defense, can not do.

    The tornado was of course pretty bristled with new missile launchers. It’s a pity that the Shell or Thor weren’t stuck there, although it would probably have been expensive.

    In terms of TNT equivalent, "Uranians" are losing to "Malachites". In order for the TNT equivalent to be equal, instead of 6 "Malachites" it is necessary to put 32-34 "Uranus". so that the "power" of this RTO has almost halved. The range has doubled ...

      I apologize, but the explosives on the Uranus are the same as on old missiles, maybe something new, stronger?

      : 6 Malachites powerful, but outdated and with a low probability of overcoming enemy air defense or 16 Uranus - weaker, but modern and more likely to overcome enemy air defense,

    It is strange that they do not change the air defense systems for them, the Wasp is not a fountain primarily in terms of rate of fire, and there is nothing to say about its modernization, moreover, all the countries that have it.
