IAC "Makhachkala" adopted in the Russian Navy


RIA News. JSC Shipbuilding Firm Almaz has transferred a small artillery ship of the 21630 project Makhachkala to the Russian Navy, the company reports.

"In October 2012, the ship successfully passed all factory running and state tests. The ship is designed to protect and protect the state's 200-mile economic zone," the report said.
Makhachkala is the fifth ship in 2012 that Almaz handed over to customers. In June, the border guard ship of the 22460 Diamond project and two border boats of the 12200 Sobol project were transferred, in September the customer received another guard ship of the 22460 project Pearls. "

“Makhachkala” has low draft and high maneuverability, the ship is capable of solving a wide range of tasks in the coastal zone of the Caspian Sea, on the river and in the estuary, as well as in other “narrow” water areas. The ship was built using technologies that make it inconspicuous for enemy radar surveillance equipment. Makhachkala is the third ship of the Buyan project. The first ship of this type "Astrakhan" became part of the Caspian flotilla in 2006, the second - in July of this year.

The ship will spend the winter in Baltiysk, and in the spring of the year 2013, after opening the inland waterways, will leave the ice for its permanent base in Astrakhan. The new IAC will be part of the Caspian flotilla and will join the same type "Astrakhan" and "Volgodonsk."

"Almaz" specializes in the construction of high-speed patrol boats, yachts and working vessels with hulls of aluminum-magnesium alloys and steel. In addition, the shipyard is the world leader in the construction of amphibious hovercraft. The company supplied the Navy with several dozen amphibious assault ships: 1205 Skat, 1206 Kalmar, 1232-1 Jayran, currently the plant is building a mass-produced 12322 Bison airborne ships. This ship is the world's largest hovercraft amphibious assault ship.

Historical reference.
The laying of the small artillery ship (MAK) “Makhachkala” (serial number 703) took place on March 24 on the 2006 of the year in the shed of the SF Almaz. The ship became 3-it, the final ship in the series. The 21630 project cipher "Buyan" was developed by Zelenodolsk Design Bureau. The main designer of the project was Y.E. Kushnir.
The ship is designed to destroy surface ships and ships of the enemy, as well as artillery support for the assault force when operating in the near-sea zone and in river sections. The main navigation area is the Caspian.

According to the original plans, the ship was to be launched in the 2008 year and, after factory and acceptance tests, were handed over to the Navy.
However, the receipt of a large number of orders from the FSB of Russia for the construction of patrol boats 12200 Sobol and ships 10410 Svetlyak, 22120 Purga and 22460 Okhotnik for the Coast Department border guards forced to adjust plans. In addition to orders from Russian border guards, the plant simultaneously built 2's Sobol for Turkmenistan and 3's Svetlyakov (1 for Slovenia and 2 for Vietnam) under Rosoboronexport contracts.

After putting most of the ships and boats listed above to the customer, the plant resumed the construction of the MAC, and the ship was launched on 27 on April 2012. After installing the artillery A190-01 in early September, the ship moved to Baltiysk and began state tests, which were successfully completed in November.

      The news is great. I am glad how Russia seized the Caspian Sea. It can be seen that with each new ship for the Caspian, the Nabucco project is slowly dying. The sea is not big, but no less important than the Black Sea. The speed at which Russia is restoring the fleet cannot but surprise. And most importantly, you can see what they want to achieve and how priorities are set. Someone whines that they are not building aircraft carriers, but I see a competent fleet policy. The Caspian Sea defends our energy interests in general on a global scale, ensures marine dominance in this region for decades to come. The construction of the Arctic fleet and bases gives operational space for our submarines in the most convenient and protected region for launches in the world, it also provides control over colossal territories and the new sea route, which will be the locomotive of our economy for at least a century ahead. With the help of the French, there is an increase in the power of the Pacific Fleet and not just reinforcement, but concrete for specific tasks. landing ships and Mistals provide unconditional sovereignty of Russia over all disputed territories. Moreover, such a shock potential is able to strengthen Russia's influence in the entire Asia-Pacific region, and this with minimal investment and tight deadlines.
      As for the Baltic fleet, despite all doubts about its expediency and power, the completion of the Ivan Gren ship and other ships will at least ensure the safety of the Nord Stream with all the consequences, and over time the power of the fleet will increase.

      And the military looted the gun. They say the extremely low reliability of automation when shooting at maximum rate of fire. It seems that they appointed a new developer to bring the gun to mind.
      It is said that Hindus also complain about the reliability of this installation ...
      In general, we are reaping the benefits of the post-Soviet period ... In Soviet times, for such implementation of the state. order, at least would be removed from the post of chief designer, or even desks. I’d put a ticket on the table.
      And now - freemen. Didn’t - well, and figs with him ... everything is exactly like water off a goose ....

    it’s a shame for such a country ... such ships should be produced at least 4 a month, and then they built one such trough for 6 years and now they write articles for a whole year ... it’s scary to imagine how and how much the aircraft carrier will build ... probably at the time of launch aircraft carriers will fly water from the Americans ...
