The company "BAE Systems" gave the Oman Navy a corvette of the project "Cariff"

The head corvette “Al Shamikh” of the project “Carif”, built by “BAE Systems” for the Oman Navy, was handed over to the customer during the “preliminary acceptance” ceremony held at the Portsmouth naval base.


The main purpose of the new corvette is to fight surface ships and enemy air attack weapons, patrol territorial waters and the exclusive economic zone, participate in international missions, conduct reconnaissance, conduct search and rescue operations, and provide assistance to those in distress.

A contract worth about 400 million pounds for the supply of the Omani Navy to three 2600-ton ships was signed with VT Shipbuilding in January 2007. In July 2008, the order was transferred to BVT Survey Fleet (a joint venture of VT Group and BAe Systems), which became the property of BA Systems in the beginning of 2009.

Three corvettes "Karif" was planned to be transferred to Oman the fleet with a six-month interval starting in 2010, but in 2009 the delivery schedule was revised due to problems encountered in the transition from design to production. The delay in the delivery project led to an increase in its cost by 160 million pounds (251 million dollars).

The construction of the head corvette "Al Shamih" began in October 2007 of the year. In July 2009, the corvette was launched.

The second corvette of the Al Rahmani series was launched in July 2010. His transfer of the Oman Navy will be implemented before the end of this year. The baptism ceremony of the third corvette "Al Razih" was held in June 2011. It is planned that it will be transferred to the customer in 2014 year.

Currently, the crew of "Al Shamih" is undergoing a five-week training in the UK. After its completion, the corvette will leave the country and go to Oman.

The final acceptance of the ship will take place in 2014 year after completion of tests in hot climates in Oman, where the corvette must demonstrate the ability to perform tasks for the purpose at temperatures over 45 hail. WITH.

        Dagestan is not a corvette and a missile boat do not carry nonsense - here is a corvette !!!


        and also - the main strike armament of "Karifa" - missiles "Exocet" with a range of 180 km, the main armament of the corvette "Guarding" (and by the way, even the missile boat "Dagestan") are missiles "Caliber" with a range of 300 km in the EXPORT version ... conclusion - even "Dagestan" will destroy "Karif" long before he can use his weapon ...
        you minus for a completely ridiculous comment really sorry ...

          It is you who are talking nonsense, calling the TFR "Dagestan" a missile boat. Although it is only 300-200 tons less in displacement than the "Guarding"

          And the main armament of the "Guarding" corvette is still the Kh-35, not the Caliber

            Firstly - "Buyan - M" according to the Russian classification "Small rocket ship !!!"
            Secondly - Why did you decide to compare the Karif corvette with a brawler, while the ships closest to it in terms of displacement and size are the Guarding corvettes (you would have compared your corvette with the MRK 1234 - there it is generally out of competition ... ), which even in the version with "Uranus" surpass Karif, and now under construction 20386 with "Caliber" and do not go to Karif at all ... I remind you that Buyan M is a "river-sea" class ship, while Karif and Guarding ships near MARINE zones.
            And thirdly - is it really looking at the Guardian (photo above) you are offended by the power?

              What does this have to do with MRK project 21631 "Buyan-M"? "Dagestan" is a Project 11661K patrol ship

          Are you an optimist or have forgotten about the radio horizon. In order to shoot and hit 300 km, you need external target designation from a reconnaissance aircraft or a helicopter with a radar on board that works in conjunction with the ship ...

    Zelenodolsk plant named after Gorky (Zelenodolsk, Tatarstan) launched a corvette (KRV) "Dagestan", intended for the Caspian flotilla. This was reported by PRIME-TASS with reference to the press service of the enterprise.

      Firstly, I’m not your grandfather’s son ...
      Secondly, the very comparison of "Karif" with "Dagestan" is incorrect, since the first is a ship of the near sea zone, and the second is a river-sea class ship.
      Third, Dagestan was built in 1991, that is, 20 years before Karif, and even with the Uran complex it can fight at least on an equal footing (Uran U has a range of 260 km and also exceeds 180 km Exocet), with the "Caliber" complex, "Karif" has no chance in view of the overwhelming superiority of Caliber over Exoset in launch range and warhead mass

      so I’m all right with the mate ... but you should be ashamed to compare the "Newest" ship with a ship of 20 years ago, which, by the way, despite its age and lower displacement, is in no way inferior to Karif, and in many respects surpasses him ... And by the way in Xnumx in the form of small displacement, he was re-classified into a small missile ship !!!

    A corvette is good, but a frigate is better! Something our quieted down? Yes, and with a destroyer some hitch turns out: designing until the 2018 of the year is too much! And there is no word about AVU. Apparently it’s completely worthless with finances. Everything is being cut off around, aren't the Jews sitting there over the fleet armament program?
