British company Babcock presented a model of a large missile boat for the Ukrainian Navy

78

The British shipbuilding company Babcock, which signed an agreement with Ukroboronprom for the construction of missile boats for the Ukrainian Navy, presented a project for a new boat. The model was shown during the DSEI-2021 exhibition in London.


So, the British have decided on a project for large missile boats for the Ukrainian Navy. At the exhibition in London, the Babcock group presented a model of a boat developed by the company's specialists based on the Protector 50 small patrol ship (50 - hull length in meters).

According to the bmpd blog, the boat will receive eight containerized anti-ship missiles, one vertical launcher for four short-range missiles, a short-range aft missile launcher, a 76-mm Leonardo Super Rapid artillery mount, and two machine gun mounts. Although another option is possible with the 57-mm artillery installation BAE Systems Bofors Mk 110 or 40-mm BAE Systems Bofors Mk 4, instead of the stern PU SAM, there is a small-caliber combat module or two types of light air defense systems.

So far, nothing has been reported about the timing of the construction of the boats, but earlier the Naval Forces of Ukraine stated that by 2024 the boats should already be part of the Ukrainian fleet.

As reported the day before, Babcock will be the main contractor in the implementation of the agreement with Ukraine in the field of strengthening the naval component. In addition to the construction of boats, the British must help with the construction of the corvette "Vladimir the Great" (presumably), as well as two naval bases in the Black and Azov Seas.

            You have interesting complexes. For example, I am Russian, a citizen of Russia, and therefore a Russian.
            And I think that there are no problems in other countries either: the Turks in Germany will be the burgher of Germany, and, in Russian, they will be called German; A Hindu in the US will be a US citizen, and will be an American.
            So it's better not to confuse: Russian and drunk EBN: rassiyane.

And they are in no hurry to assimilate, and even more so to be called a "German" or "Englishman". Because national pride is their priority. It is with us, Great Russians, all sorts of theorists from scientific communism knocked out our Great Russian identity in every possible way. In our country, only the Georgian J.V. Stalin considered himself to be a Russian people and didn’t get a grave from this.
              But his heirs, without suffering for a long time, bungled a new community - the "Soviet people". Then they quickly destroyed the country and piled into Bavaria to advertise pizza .... (Ugh, disgusting!) And so that we finally forget what kind of tribe, with the filing of the burry underground, "column five" was removed from the passport.

                    Any displacement vessel cannot have a speed of more than 50 knots.
                    Rather, somewhere around 30 knots +/- two.

                      You are not entirely rabid. Air cavity boats belong to the displacement class. They run very quickly, though without equipment on board, but they still do not reach 50 knots, unlike those "flying" in a balloon or a PC ...

                        -Well, at this time, there is no waterline, that is, there is no volume of water displaced by the vessel (displacement). But even in this case, they do not develop 50 knots yet.

                      Regarding the main part of the UNCEP program, it was reported that, according to the wishes of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, it is planned to build eight large missile boats with a length of at least 50 meters and a displacement (apparently standard) of 400 tons, with a full speed of 40 to 45 knots.

      Last news (yesterday) stated:
      For the implementation of all projects, London will issue a loan to Kiev. The British Export Credits Guarantee Department (ECGD) will be involved to finance the needs of the IMSU. The amount allocated by London equal to £ 1,25 billion (1,6 billion dollars) and issued for a period of 10 years.


      What's the point of keeping your fleet? There, everything is already moving into a stage when it is very expensive and completely useless.

            True, but not so important for a boat, it is important for sea tugs and oilfield service vessels - "sapliers", and for boats more than 5 points, you can't stick your nose out of the port, the boat has limitations. But the boat also needs a high tank, it will draw water already at three points.

    In addition to the construction of boats, the British must help with the construction of the corvette "Vladimir the Great" (presumably)

    How can the corvette be named after the Novgorod prince, who captured Kiev in 978, overthrowing and killing his brother Yaropolk. As it all does not fit in with Ukraine.

    The type of announcement: "We urgently need intellectual giants for the war with Russia. We will provide a boat. We organize the funeral of the crew. Reliable jobs. Friendly atmosphere. Career growth."

    The largest boats of our yacht club were the MRS-80 and the former Mosquito missile boat. This boat will be more, closer to the corvettes, however. A dangerous opponent for Buyans, Karakurt and Gadflies.

        Duc is a layout. How many radars will be installed there is unknown. Look the deckhouse from above is free and it is unlikely that PSN will place it there. Let us recall the Georgian-Ossetian conflict. An episode when Georgian boats approached our convoy dangerously. Our aviation was connected by Ukrainian air defense systems. our former ally went over to the enemy side and could not cover the convoy.

    By the way, the armament is serious, whatever one may say. It can cause a lot of problems.

      Only that's not his own. It's called "shoot and forget" ... forever about the fact that you had it. Supply during hostilities is categorically not possible. In the last war across the ocean, the Britons barely supplied themselves, almost died of hunger. Do you think they will regularly supply ukrov if that? Oh i doubt

      AHA ... Particularly impressed by as much (!) 4 missiles ... And this is in the water area, where the aviation of the Black Sea Fleet and the Southern Military District dominates ... Yes, he will not be able to escape, not to mention the organization of the OBK air defense ... And cover him in the sea there is nothing for dill: they have neither aviation nor NK with zonal air defense ... What they are counting on is not clear.
      But ambition is above the roof!

        For a boat? 4 zur is not enough?
        Come on. And how many Zur, for example, on Lightning?
        It's enough for them. Let there be another PU at the stern.

          On 1234.1 (Gadfly) there is an Osa-MA, an ammunition load of 20 9M-33 anti-aircraft missiles.
          And at 1241.8 (Lightning) there are 16 Uraniums (D = 260 km) and Pantsir-M will be installed, not 4 missiles. But there are also 8 P-35U and 2 630 in the stern. So - for every taste! (And for a foreign customer too)
          AHA.

            But this is not a boat, really. It will be one and a half to two times more in displacement. Not to mention the obsolescence of the Wasp.

            Yes, there is no Shell at the stern, only "metal cutters". And in the construction of the last 2 backlogs on the hulls hung like a long time. And no new ones, either for themselves or for a foreign customer, are being built and will not be.

            Shell-M will not exist, there are only 8 Uranians.

    Tsuko, as many as 2 air defense complexes. That is why the agliks do, while some bastard has accepted Buyan and Corvettes without air defense for production? And the stupid Vasili Bykovs go there too. How so?

    So the country of Banderlog has come. Themselves destroyed their aircraft industry and shipbuilding, and tank building. Not only ships - boats are not able to build. It is simply incomprehensible to the mind, how over 30 years they squandered everything that got to the Union. It is sad and disgusting to look at today's Ukraine.
