By the end of 2012, the city of Makhachkala will be part of the Caspian Flotilla

The new small artillery ship (IAC) Makhachkala successfully completed all stages of state tests. State Admission Commission composed of representatives of the Naval Fleet and the manufacturer signed a deed of acceptance of the ship.

After the statement of the act by the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, the flag of Andrew will be raised at the IAC "Makhachkala", and the ship will become part of the Caspian Flotilla.

At present, preparatory events are being held on the ship for a solemn ceremony to be held in late December.

The IAC "Makhachkala" is the third ship of the "Buyan" project and is intended for the Caspian Sea basin. The lead ship of the Caspian flotilla of this project, the Astrakhan IAC, over the course of 6 years, has proven itself to perform tasks at shallow depths and in “narrow” water areas of the r. Volga and the Caspian Sea.

A series of ships of the project “Buyan” was designed by FSUE “Zelenodolsk Design Bureau” (Republic of Tatarstan), all of them were built at the shipyards of Shipbuilding Firm “Almaz” OJSC (St. Petersburg).

    Good luck, we will soon see a new ship in the foam and on the sea wave

    Although small, of course - only 500 tons. There is no smell of "revival" of the Navy here, but still better than nothing at all

      In skillful hands, the IAC is a very toothy thing, so don’t worry, it will show itself yes

      PS Seven feet under the keel of the Makhachkala in the Caspian Sea! soldier

      May the Caspian fleet grow stronger

      I would prefer that the Pacific Fleet be strengthened by atomic pikes and destroyers. Alas, building a nuclear submarine is not an IAC.

    Abramovich has a bigger yacht, and probably better armed!

        sorry for the boots, something I lagged behind marine life :), tell me, where do we make 100-mm guns? We used to do it at the Yurginsky machine-building plant, but after the USSR it was still closed. As far as I thought, there was a unique production in Jurg ...

      To support assault forces on narrow river communications or in the sea coastal zone. For this, there are A-190 and Grad-M. Dimensions and displacement are just the right thing for these purposes. There is also Buyan-m - Modernization of IAC with 8 launchers for "Onyx" or "Caliber" - already more than 900 tons (versus 500 with a hook) displacement. Needed for action at sea against enemy surface ships. For each task - its weapons and the corresponding displacement. Both options are needed, which, in fact, is being done

        Excess weapons. If universal sodate is a watchdog ,. so we can’t rivet it since 2000.
        It turned out a samovar-steam locomotive-wind
        Not for the Caspian. The ship is overloaded with weapons, in my opinion - it is better to increase autonomy.

      the question is really serious - who knows what forces of the adjacent states are in the Caspian? Sorry if the replay, something did not notice such materials
