      As I understand it, they tested Onyx-M anti-ship missiles with new fuel. As promised.
      The frigate fired cruise missiles at sea targets in the training ranges of the Northern Fleet in the White Sea.

      Or RCC Zircon, but it seems like it should be tested on Gorshkov?

        These are government tests of a ship, not new missiles. So, most likely the missiles were regular, and the "Caliber" was in the anti-ship version, which means with a supersonic head.
        New missiles - "Zircon" will be tested from "Gorshkov", and it is possible that they will fit before the New Year ... although the weather there is not always favorable.

          In my opinion now all KR Caliber can be used as anti-ship, even those that work on ground targets.
          General designer of the Kolomna Machine Building Design Bureau Valery Kashin says that "in total, it can use seven seemingly completely identical missiles with 10 types of different warheads." They can be nuclear, cluster, consisting of 54 separate combat elements, penetrating to destroy buried, well-protected objects, high-explosive fragmentation, volumetric detonating, and God knows what else. For example, in one of the variants, the complex is equipped with two long-range cruise missiles. The latter make it possible to hit not only enemy ground infrastructure facilities, but also act as anti-ship weapons. "Iskander", like a good gun, allows the hunter to choose a cartridge for the type of game that he is going to hunt.

        There, it seems, even at that time Gorshkov should test Zircon

    The frigate is able to cover 4500 miles, while developing a speed of up to 29 knots.

    Strangely constructed sentence. You would think that at speeds up to 29 knots. Range 4500 nautical miles at an economic speed of 14 knots.

    At least 5 of these ships for the Pacific Fleet and Northern Fleet to build and put into operation, and that would be much more fun business in our fleet. And most importantly, they must simultaneously be part of

      Maybe in fact large ships of the Russian Federation are not needed? The striking power of the frigates is quite sufficient for the stability of the SSBN groups. Maritime communications, over long distances, we do not seem to need to protect. Demonstration of a flag in the oceans, burping of imperial ambitions. Armed yachts of aligarchs let the bourgeois flag show. Another thing is that they need a lot. In terms of quantitative composition, we do not have a fleet.

      for SF and Pacific Fleet, at least 6 units of the modernized project are needed
      And these and those that are laid down - for the Black Sea Fleet and the Baltic!

    The weather has been with us for the last two days: snow-wind-again heavy snow-rain-wind.
    How are "partner" mushroom pickers in rubber boots on the shores of the White Sea? I'm worried about them a lot. After all, even vodka in a flask I suppose they did not think to strain it ...

    faterdom (Andrey), dear, and why would this concern for the star-striped mushroom pickers? Are you afraid that wolves will fall into the traps, that Gennady Korotin and his brigade began to set around the city? You would come as normal scouts from India and China to Sevmash, fill out all the questionnaires, wait 2-3 months for admission and that's all - they would receive passes. And upon receiving the passes, our faces would give everyone the famous Sevmashevskaya stainless steel flask "Prosyankin on the hunt" and, as a bonus, teach them to sip from that flask so that their lips would not freeze to the neck in the cold.

    I always could not understand! Why do we need frigates, destroyers, aircraft carriers .. If just a couple of three Onyxes are enough, what would it all be to feed the fish? Well, seriously .. Make a couple of kayaks with a bunch of Onyx-Shmoniks .. why do you need a fleet? After all, respecting komenty, the ships simply have no chance! With it, regardless of class! Even a frigate, even an aircraft carrier!

    Good news. And yet - the number of crew members in comparison with the bourgeois counterparts is large .. 170 people on board .. This indicates primarily the low automation of ship vehicles and mechanisms ..

    As I understand it, they tested Onyx-M anti-ship missiles with new fuel. As promised.

    Work on "Onyx-M" has just begun. Moderate your ardor. The rocket will be ready in a couple of years. It does not happen that in September the start of work is announced, and at the beginning of December they have already shot
