The design of the ship applied measures to reduce radar visibility. Structural protection is local in nature and protects only certain premises. Protection against weapons mass destruction.

A two-shaft gas-gas turbine installation is used as the main power plant. For each shaft there are two afterburner gas turbine engines (GTE), one propulsion GTE and a steam turbine. Gas turbine engine gas turbine engine is used by a heat-recovery circuit with steam turbines, which increases the efficiency of the power plant.

The armament is based on the B-500 Basalt missile strike (anti-ship) missile system with the Argon command and control system (16 missiles in 8 dual-container launchers). SU allows you to conduct salvo firing of all anti-ship missiles. Anti-aircraft means are represented by multichannel air defense systems of the collective (zone) defense "Fort" (8х8 ВПУ, 64 ЗУР) and 2 ЗРК self-defense "Оса-М" (2х2 ПУ, 40 ЗУР). The ship’s fire weapons are supplemented with an X-NUMX-mm AU AK-130 and three 130-mm small-caliber anti-aircraft artillery systems (MZAK) AK-30M batteries. The ship is equipped with the MP-630 radar complex as part of the MP-800 and MP-600 radar, and a fully-equipped hydro-acoustic MG-750 complex (with a towed antenna). On the cruiser is based one Ka-355.

Displacement of the cruiser 11500 tons, length 186 m, width 20,8 m, draft 8,4 m. Sailing 7500 miles at a speed of 18 knots. Full speed 32 knot.

The construction of Moscow-type cruisers was carried out from 1983 to 1991 at the plant named after M.Kh. 61 of the Communard in the city of Nikolaev. For the Navy of the USSR-Russia, the 3 cruisers "Moscow", "Marshal Ustinov" and "Varyag" were built. All ships are in service of the Russian Navy.

      You are not far from the truth when “Chervona Ukraine” was distilled to KTOF, then you made a parking lot at Kamran, during the parking lot the Vietnamese sold (or rather changed) all the details that have color. metals that could be twisted. As a result, having come to KTOP Chervona Ukraine, it was under repair for a long time ...

      The Chinese are seriously considering the construction of a canal through Nicaragua, there will be a second way from the Atlantic to the Pacific. And Ortega is still that comrade, a Sandinista sourdough, who grew up on the ideals of Chegevara. Russia in the person of "Moscow" made a far from accidental visit at this time. Everything is so interestingly intertwined, it can be said in the back pocket of US pants.

        In fact, the Chinese company HK Nicaragua Canal has already received a contract for it, construction is scheduled to begin in December 2014. The construction period is 11 years (in other sources it is 5 years, but it sounds doubtful), expenses are 40 billion US dollars. Also, American companies show great interest in the channel, as the canal will be much wider and deeper than Panama.

      I do not agree with both statements. The second is a matter of taste (although I also like Moksva) and the first is Petya is somewhat stronger in terms of air defense, and then, when compared with the predecessors of Project 1144, the advantage will be very slight.

      “Moscow” is more beautiful because of the “cigars” on the sides. “Orlan” keeps everything under the deck, in fact, like “Arly Burke” ... But still, if you look purely at architecture, then “Atlas” looks more formidable than “Orlan” (personal opinion).

      In the USSR, they did not plan to strike on the ground with the forces of the surface fleet (with the exception of artillery support for the landing) - that's why nothing.

      However, the P-500, P-700 can hit ground targets, but the effectiveness is exclusively SBN, because there is no accuracy.

      New ships (RK Dagestan, RTO Sviyazhsk, Uglich and the whole series, 11356 frigates, 22350 frigates, 20385 corvettes, submarines 636 ave. And updated Nakhimov) will receive the UKKS complex, which is capable of striking surface targets (350-400 km) above ground (over 2000 km) and underwater (up to 80 km).


      About RL visibility - the first Soviet ship with reduction measures, etc. 11540 Undaunted.

      Well, actually, if you equip a P-500 or P-700 with a nuclear warhead (I think that there are 1-2 missiles with nuclear weapons on the Atlantes and Orlan), then it's not bad to shy around New York ... bully

    With the characteristic authenticity of the ships of the ocean fleet of the USSR.

    Of course, I respect this ship, but why, excuse me, does it strike at coastal targets, and what measures are there to reduce the radar visibility?

    Just in case ... Of course, a lot has been written, but if you are not too lazy to read. The tactical and technical characteristics and parameters of the cruiser
    "Moscow".

    Displacement-11,5 tons, length-186 meters, width-21 meters
    height-42.5 meters, draft-8.5 meters. Maximum speed
    cruiser-32 knots, economical speed-16 knots.
    Gas turbine engine, 4x22500 hp (horsepower
    forces), 2 screws. Maximum cruising range at 15-18
    knots — 6000 miles (12000 kilometers). A cruiser may be located
    in autonomous navigation for 30 days. Crew (number of personal
    composition of the ship) -510 people (in another source it is written
    that the crew of the ship is 416 people, including 38 officers).

    Ship armament

    1. Anti-ship weapons-16 launchers (launchers)
    anti-ship missiles P-1000 "Volcano" (the most powerful
    anti-ship missiles in the world
    , there is an opportunity to release
    all missiles simultaneously, in all directions).
    thanks to the P-1000 "Volcano" missiles, the cruiser "Moscow" received
    the glory of the "killer aircraft carrier."

    2.ZRV (anti-aircraft missile weapons) cruiser-8x8 PU (launchers
    installations) B-204 SAM (anti-aircraft missile system) S-300F
    "Fort" and 2x2 launchers (launchers) SAM "Osa-MA" (ammunition
    S-300F "Fort" -64 missiles, and the Osa-MA ammunition -48 missiles).
    S-300F "Fort" provides anti-aircraft and anti-ship
    protection of the cruiser (and the ships under its protection) in
    a radius of several tens of kilometers, and an auxiliary SAM
    "Osa-MA" provides protection for the cruiser in close combat (so
    say the second line of defense, the last line of defense of the cruiser).

    3. Artillery cruiser-1 double-barrel 130 mm
    artillery mount AK-130 (the most powerful ship
    gun mount in the world with a very high rate of fire
    - releases several tons of shells per minute) and 6
    six-barrel 30 mm artillery mounts
    AK-630, a total of seven artillery mounts (for the near
    battle, the same "last frontier").

    4.Anti-submarine armament of the cruiser-2x5 533 mm
    torpedo tubes, as well as 2x12 RBU-6000 jet bombs.

    5. Aviation cruiser-one helicopter Ka-27.

    In addition, the cruiser has all the conditions for sailors
    and officers. 1-2 local cabins are provided to officers, and sailors
    placed in small cockpits. In wardrooms are installed
    TVs, stereo systems, in all living spaces of the ship
    air conditioners installed, all conditions for comfortable
    rest and life of the personnel.

        China does not need Ukraine for nothing. Russia, however, is also no longer needed, we will only have repairs and a small modernization of the existing Ustinov, Varyag and Moscow.

        China is now building advanced destroyers, type 052D. Own radar with canvases in the superstructure. Our C-300F but not in turret installations, but in VPU. Moreover, 32 + 32 VPU are intended not only for C-300F, but also for anti-ship missiles, PLUR and KR.

        At the moment, the 3 destroyer 052D has been launched and is being completed afloat, one of which should already be tested this year.

        The Chinese will not find anything interesting in Ukraine.

            This destroyer is certainly no worse than Atlanta (if you put aside the role of the killer of the AUG). New systems, layout.

            As for the missiles, there is an ambush. Ukraine does not have them, like most equipment on a ship. Russia Basalt / Volcano and equipment for it will not sell for such reasons:
            1) This is a gross violation of the international treaty on the range of missiles for export.
            2) We have few of these missiles themselves, with CP and + 10 years (that is, 25-30 years of the failure of ships) Basalts and Volcanoes are just enough for an already truncated shooting program.

            Therefore, these Chinese cruisers are certainly without any need. They have S-300F in a more modern version, there is a HAK, and even their own gun 130 mm is already there.

      And even better, the flag was shown not only by warships, but also by Russian civilian vessels, flying their own flag. (In neutral waters, the ship is a sovereign territory of the country under whose flag it is flying. I understand) Then it would be interesting to see how the NATO will slow the ship in neutral waters and inspect.
      PS In the 60s, civilian ships of the USSR broke through the blockade of Cuba and the amers could not do anything. And now, in the same Syria, they carry weapons to the BDK, because the civilian fleet goes under someone else’s registration and you can stop any such ship or turn back.

    Good news. Russia is slowly returning to Latin America. Nicaragua also opens a special training center with Russia, officially to train fighters (special forces) to fight drug trafficking laughing They will train Russian specialists. And already one (or maybe more) of the combined-arms Ministry of Defense of Russia has opened. Yes, and Venezuela, a target loan of 2,6 billion dollars was provided for the purchase of Russian weapons, gear and equipment for the needs of the Venezuelan army. Thank God Russia turns to face former friends of the USSR, undeservedly abandoned by liberalists in the 90s

    China is trying to formulate a naval doctrine, and the first strike aircraft carrier speaks for itself, the theater of war involves a confrontation with Japan and the United States, in order to break through the sea orders at least one strike group is needed, without a powerful cruiser such as Moscow or Petruha it is impossible to break through to the coast, no destroyers do not replace the cruiser of the far sea zone,
    and minus ministers, you at least argue your discontent, I see a rooster and a kuzy almost weekly, they are standing stupidly against the wall, recently they put a kuzhka on the roads of Severomorsk, the dog fucked up the floor of the gulf with oil, they didn’t touch it better)) I can give you the numbers, the fisherman is 1800 rt with 35 hours on board with fuel and supplies it costs about $ 20t per day, count the lope eats the atlant only to show the flag, while not providing any military service, or urya-urya-urya, this is the main thing

      The Strategic Missile Forces (in their own way) show the same “flag” and litter spilled fuel around them, but for some reason it never occurred to anyone to doubt the necessity of such a “flag display”.

      Nobody argues that: more order and discipline will not hurt us, but a powerful and multi-purpose fleet is necessary for this country !!!
