The chances of the Ukrainian "mosquito fleet" against the Russian Black Sea Fleet: on the realities of the Ukrainian Navy

58

At the end of last year, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Ruslan Khomchak called the Ukrainian mosquito fleet "kamikaze boats", and said that Ukraine urgently needs at least four corvettes to defend against the Black Sea fleet Russia.


Kamikaze boats or large warships


The idea of ​​creating a large fleet of small military boats to protect the coastal zone seems to be questioned at the highest level today. If we face the truth, then these boats are not capable of causing any serious damage to the warships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

If we are talking about the "mosquito fleet", then we are talking about kamikaze boats, which have a one-way ticket.

- considers the head of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

But the idea of ​​a "mosquito fleet" did not appear in Ukraine out of the blue, but only because the Ukrainian budget simply does not have enough funds for anything else. In addition, in 2014, the Kiev authorities lost, along with Crimea, about 70 percent of their warships and three-quarters of the personnel of the Navy.

An ardent supporter of the idea of ​​creating a fleet of small boats was the Deputy Chief of the General Staff Igor Kabanenko, but the then Commander-in-Chief of the Navy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Sergei Gaiduk strongly disagreed with him. This is what, in his opinion, the chances of the Ukrainian mosquito fleet against the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation: it will be drowned either immediately after entering the open sea, or even earlier, right at the berths. Instead, in 2016, Gaiduk suggested that the Vladimir Veliky corvette be refined and even acquired several submarines. But dreams have remained dreams.

Soon after these fantastic statements, the Commander-in-Chief of the Naval Forces of Ukraine was removed from office and honorably retired. And in the Ukrainian General Staff, the concept of a "mosquito fleet" reigned.

Fleet of combat boats of Ukraine: dreams and reality


At the moment, the Ukrainian "mosquito fleet" is not yet as large as it was assumed. It includes six armored river missile and artillery boats of the project 58150 of the Gyurza-M class, which are not particularly suitable for military operations due to their weak armor, modest armament and little impressive sailing data. They are more suited to chase poachers than to fight with the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation, which they themselves constantly declare. These are Nikopol, Berdyansk, Lubny, Kremenchug, Akkerman and Vyshgorod.

The chances of the Ukrainian "mosquito fleet" against the Russian Black Sea Fleet: on the realities of the Ukrainian Navy

The idea was to create rocket boats of the "Lan" type, on which the anti-ship systems "Neptune" would be installed. The Ministry of Defense did not like the trial version of the boat, so it was abandoned. Perhaps because the boat turned out to be much heavier than planned. And there are no “Neptuns” in ship performance yet.


A more serious technique is the two Island patrol boats of the American Coast Guard built in the 80s, which were transferred to Ukraine about two years ago. Having entered service with the Naval Forces of Ukraine, they were named "Starobelsk" and "Slavyansk". Actually, you should not expect anything supernatural from them, but they are quite capable of coping with coastal patrols or search and rescue operations.


Mark VI - the hope of the Ukrainian fleet


Still, one should not look down on the Ukrainian "mosquito fleet". In the near future, Ukraine plans to purchase 16 Mark VI small combat boats from the Pentagon. They were developed in the United States only about five years ago, that is, they are quite modern technology, surpassing the obsolete "Islands" in their characteristics.

They have aluminum hulls, have a displacement of 72 tons and are equipped with a solid machine gun and cannon armament. In addition, the Mark can be equipped with grenade launchers and light anti-ship missiles.


Its cruising range is 600 miles, which is quite enough for the waters of the Azov and Black Seas. It is capable of traveling at a speed of 35 knots.

In addition, it was assumed by the forces of the Kuznya na Rybalskiy shipyard, owned by Poroshenko, to establish more or less mass production of Gyurza-class boats. Now, after Khomchak's speech, it is possible that their construction in Ukraine will be abandoned, and again they will take up corvettes.


Of course, the Ukrainian General Staff is unlikely to seriously count on the defeat of the Russian Black Sea Fleet by the "valiant" Naval Forces and their "mosquito fleet", but, as practice shows, they are quite capable of arranging a large-scale provocation there. At the same time, they can sink their own boats themselves - as they say, before a real meeting with the ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, then announcing that this is "Moscow's new aggression." From this point of view, the Ukrainian "chance" against the Russian Black Sea Fleet looms much more clearly. True, a separate question is how this can turn out for Kiev itself ...

    Odds ukrainsky "mosquito fleet" against the Russian Black Sea Fleet: on the realities of the Ukrainian Navy

    Chances, realities? There was just a publication about the Okrug's intentions to convert the 48-year-old tug into a patrol ship.
    Among those commenting on this "initiative" there are even those who regard this step as logical and natural.

    Logical? maybe yes Only from which side? Considering that the Outskirts from the legacy of the USSR "fouled" EVERYTHING, both the fleet and shipyards and base in Crimea - then YES, "logical" ...


    So what are the chances, prospects, and maritime "peremogo"

                It is ridiculous even to compare light boats of river and coastal navigation with the MARINE FLEET. But even if this whole "fleet" of Mosek attacks a single frigate of Russia (which is very difficult to imagine in reality) and they are very, very, very lucky, they will definitely not carry their legs. This is where the naval battles of the opposing fleets will end: one "fleet" will cease to exist, and the other will remain. Although, perhaps, a couple of ancient tugs, armed with pushers and loudly called patrol boats, will remain at the sea hole of Ukraine. lol

      The whole practice of naval battles clearly shows that any ships without serious air defense are sunk by aviation. Well, mosquitoes are drowned once or twice. Examples from the recent past are Iranian aircraft versus Iraqi boats and US aircraft versus Iranian boats.
      I suppose ours will simply send planes, it will simply not come to ship battles.

        Where do they have a naval base, a concentration zone, and that these boats have already become invisible. Well, I understand that education after the collapse of the USSR in Ukraine is zero, but not to the same degree. And in general, who commands them, the lieutenant general of the tank forces, then some kind of "dad", and the great infantry strategist develops plans for the conduct of war for the Navy.

    Ukraine now, like Russia in the 90s, makes up its annual budget only after receiving a loan from the IMF. Moreover, she must return more than she receives. So in 2021, it should return 1,7 billion, and will receive two tranches for a total amount of 1,4 billion. In 2022 ,. should return already 2,4 billion.
    Russia has scratched itself out of the "IMF swamp", and Ukraine will only sink into it every year. Therefore, the people are "fed" with stories about tomorrow's greatness of Ukraine in all directions.

    Okraina has no money to build modern corvettes herself. And the Sumerian mosquito fleet can become dangerous for the Russian Black Sea Fleet only in two cases.
    First .
    If the ships of this Mosquito Fleet of Okraina are equipped with American Griffin missiles, or something similar.
    Second.
    If the ships of the World Cup of Russia and their crews suddenly go blind and allow the ships of the Okraina mosquito fleet to reach them closer than ten nautical miles, at a distance that can be covered by Griffin missiles or the like. But what can happen to the ships of the Black Sea Fleet, so that they would not strike at the ships of the mosquito fleet, until they come closer to the ships of the Black Sea Fleet closer than ten nautical miles, what can happen to the ships of the Black Sea Fleet, I cannot imagine. Machine-gun and small-caliber artillery weapons can also be used only after a couple of nautical miles to the Black Sea Fleet ships. And which warship of the Black Sea Fleet to admit to itself at a distance so that it would be shot from a machine gun or a small-caliber cannon.
    This means that Okraina will whine and beg the United States to give the United States at least the decommissioned ones. old ones, but corvettes or even destroyers.

    He quickly flew up, fired and ran away, if it worked out, of course. And on the shore - a powerful battery of cover with missiles, mines, cannons and in general - full, as they say, stuffing.
    And "set" such boats at the rate of 5 pieces for one big one. Out of 5 torpedoes (missiles), something will hit a large ship, if not a "kirdyk", then it will be incapacitated in any way.
    Plus surprise, plus coherence, plus morale - they can wipe their nose, especially if there is good coastal protection.
    Moreover, the Black Sea is not an ocean, a relatively small theater of military operations - you can quickly escape under the protection of your shores ...

    The question is - what am I wrong? There is definitely a catch, because everything turns out very simply.

      Yes, there are some minor issues:
      1. Dodge enemy aircraft.
      2. Find that big ship.
      3. Wait for suitable weather
      4. Be able to reach the attack distance alive.

      Otherwise, everything is fine.

        "Finding that big ship" is not a problem to find, but to agree with that ship: "wait while we attack you" is a problem. Although, if it is possible without declaring war, it will still be a serious response

      Passion for the concept of "Mosquito Fleet" was also in the pre-war USSR. For example, the Black Sea Fleet had two brigades of G-5 type torpedo boats. Just read the chapter "Project Evaluation" in Wikipedia on the page about this type of boat and then try to find analogues in modern naval forces. The fleet on such a basis will not win a modern war, which means that all peacetime will be inept to eat up the country's budget, and during the war it will greatly disappoint the owner.
      With regard to Ukraine, you are right. It is possible to protect the beaches of Odessa and Berdyansk.

        Just read the chapter "Project Evaluation"

        I read it and realized that the G-5 was not used for its intended purpose, but it was either difficult or impossible to use it for its intended purpose because of its very poor seaworthiness.
        Indeed, if you can carry out a torpedo launch only with waves of no more than 1 point, and go out to sea no more than 3, this is a fiasco.
        Nevertheless, it should be noted that with the advent of missiles, the boat changed from a torpedo boat to a rocket boat. But the essence remains the same - fast, biting, unobtrusive.
        This concept is still alive and what prevents a potential enemy from using it in the Black Sea?

          Italy in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea built six high-speed missile boats of the "Sparviero" at the end of the last century. Ukraine on the Black Sea is somewhat similar to Italy on the Mediterranean, and the Italian school of shipbuilding is not the last in the world. The Sparviero is four times heavier than the G-5 (60 tons versus 15). Read how this Italian version of the modern "fast, biting, stealthy" missile boat ended with a continuation in the Japanese Navy. Italy and Japan are much more authoritative maritime powers in comparison with Ukraine, I think so!

    unsuccessful article.
    The author wrote about patrol boats, for which anti-ship functions are unusual (and then I missed the French FPB-98 Mk1, which are currently being built), but at the same time bypassed the agreement with the British on the construction of missile boats with modern Norwegian NSM anti-ship missiles.

    "More mass production of boats of the" Gyurza "class, Pan Poroshenko would only be in favor.
    In principle: "Gyurza" are good to drive some guerrillas in South America, but "Uncle Sam" doesn't need competitors in FIG

    The question is not the combat capabilities of the Ukrainian Navy. Any of their boats, which is or appears, is dangerous only because it will be thrown to provoke some kind of NK Black Sea Fleet. The method of the street punks - a harmless puny teases a serious man. And around the corner a crowd of punks immediately appears - "Why are you kidding me?" wassat

    The question is, what do boats have to do with the mosquito fleet? The "mosquito" fleet has always been attributed to RTOs, because it is a different class of displacement ships. After all, boats cannot move further than 50 km from the coastline, or am I mistaken? low-side boats equipped with two small-caliber cannons with automatic weapons against the Navy or the Aerospace Forces, if only to protect the Ukrainian water area of ​​Azov, they will probably go there.
