The terms for the adoption of the project 21631 "Buyan-M" into the combat structure of the Baltic Fleet RTO "Grad" have been announced

Small missile ship "Grad" project 21631 "Buyan-M" completed factory sea trials and proceeded to the state, after which it will be followed by entry into the combat structure of the Baltic fleet. This was reported by the press service of the BF.


RTO "Grad" after a short break again went to the sea ranges of the Baltic Fleet, but to pass the program of state tests. On board the ship are the crew and the commissioning team, whose task is to fully check the RTO and prepare it for transfer to the fleet.

The newest small rocket ship "Grad" 21631 "Buyan-M" - the carrier of the cruise missiles "Caliber" and "Onyx", built at the "Zelenodolsk plant named after A.M. Gorky" for the Baltic Fleet, has started a program of state tests in the sea ranges of the Baltic Fleet

    The displacement is only 949 tons, and the boat can turn the history of some European states. And right from the pier.

      Why not? 3S-14 was made under Onyx.

        Onyx is RCC. I heard somewhere that on all RTOs UKKS are castrated and are not capable of firing Onyxes, which is indirectly confirmed by the fact that not a single RTO, as well as Black Sea frigates, project 20385 corvettes, project 636 diesel-electric submarines have ever fired them. Currently, these missiles are 100% fired by the Bastion DBK, Project 22350 frigates and Project 885 nuclear submarines. Well, Indian Su-30s also shoot Brahmos, which are the essence of Onyx.

          This was said only about the frigates of project 11356, although there the harm is in the software. DELPs cannot do this, because they do not have USPK at all and missiles are launched from torpedo tubes. But I don’t remember this about RTOs and corvettes.

      It would still be a marine version of the shell to put on it, just in general there would be no price

    The third RTO of this project is already a force! Taking into account three more Karakurts, this is a salvo from 48 KR Caliber or Onyx. Not bad for the Baltic Sea!)))

    It would be better if instead of Buyans they increased the series of Karakurts, they are one and a half times cheaper than Buyans, despite the best characteristics in terms of seaworthiness and armament (the Pantsir-M air defense system cannot be compared with the Gibka air defense system installed on Buyans)
    Well, okay, in the absence of fish, Buyan will pass for a warship ....
    Are the diesel engines in Buyany domestic or Chinese?
    They wrote about Chinese diesel engines on the military-industrial complex, they often break down and do not give out the given power ....

      For Buyans, at least there is a diesel engine. For karakurts, they make a teaspoon per hour. For a year and a half, a photo of 3 karakurts without engines standing on Pella has been circulating on the net. They are being built on 3 sites, but Zvezda cannot supply the required number of old Soviet diesel engines. That is, until the Star reaches the required level, it is useless to order them. Although in fact, you are right, karakurt is better.
