Squadron for export

Russian warships exported over the past 20 years.

Perhaps, having read this article, you will think: “Eh, sorry ... Such a number of warships and boats could increase the power of the Russian Navy, and they were sold ...”

On the one hand, this is true, could be strengthened. On the other hand, one often encounters the assertion that Russia can only sell raw materials for export. Export of military equipment in general, and equipment for the naval fleet in particular, a good example of the export of high-tech products of domestic industry.

And most importantly, the successful fulfillment of export contracts demonstrates the preservation of competence by the domestic shipbuilding industry and gives confidence that it will cope with the task of building ships, boats and auxiliary vessels for various purposes and for the Russian Navy.

To summarize, taking into account 2-x diesel-electric submarines for the Indian Navy (which will be discussed later) since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia has exported 52 warships and boats, including:

1 aircraft carrier

4 destroyer

8 frigates

6 missile boats

9 patrol boats



This number of ships and boats allows you to form a fleet, surpassing the power of most fleets in the world.

      Well at least they built it. And then people were sitting without paycheck. Specialists would completely run away. Thanks to these orders, production capacities were preserved, experience gained, which is very useful for the restoration of its fleet.

        This is clear. There are no questions for the workers. I have to the Supreme. And do not immediately about EBN. With GDP, more weapons were sent over the hill, I mean new, than done for myself. And the experience is good. Only an experienced tanker without a tank is not a tanker.

          Dear colleague Jamal is right, thanks to foreign orders, shipyards and related industries survived, personnel were saved, and new ones were prepared somewhere. As a result, when it came to building ships for our fleet, there is someone to build these ships, after two decades of lack of orders and uncertainty about the defense policy of the Russian Government.
          But, building ships is still half the battle. They need coastal infrastructure, otherwise the ships will turn into rust troughs in a few years. Thank God, in parallel with the construction of ships, we also took up infrastructure (somewhere new to be built, somewhere old to be put in order).

        I totally agree.

        Having sold these ships, the factories earned money for which they managed to maintain production capacities and highly qualified specialists. Only because of this we still have shipyards.

        And if we didn’t sell them, we would now have no factories or ships, since in those days the army and navy did not have enough money even for fuel and lubricants and the ships would simply rot at the berths.

        I suspect that this sold-out squadron fed the whole country a couple of years, if not more. We were lucky that the Americans were blunt. If only at the peak of perestroika they realized that the country could be taken almost without a fight, we would be learning the Albanian language right now, and not chatting about the sold fleet in the forum ...

      This is in addition to the fact that it is being built for the Russian fleet, and this is already, excuse me, not a little, taking into account our recent "shitty perestroika" past, and if you look at the dates of some products, when they were laid down, the question naturally arises, were these orders kept? our production..

      "It is interesting for comparison to see the number of ships delivered to their fleet and the number of decommissioned ones.

      By the end of the 80s, the Soviet Navy had about 80 boats with ballistic missiles. About 200 multi-purpose boats (nuclear submarines, diesel-electric submarines), including those with cruise missiles. 4 aircraft-carrying cruisers, about a hundred ships in the ocean zone, deep beyond 100 patrol boats. So the absolute majority was written off. The reasons are different: both economic and political. We couldn't pull such a fleet. First, they began to write off old ships (many of the 60s). But then it went more interesting. All the aircraft-carrying cruisers were sold or put on pins and needles, and the simple "Pike" and "Granites" were disposed of (this is naiad with really outdated boats). All "Eagles" - in reserve.
      At the beginning of the 90s, the submarine fleet was replenished, but only at the expense of the backlog of the 80s (the terms of construction and adoption are extended). Most of the Schuk-Bs were commissioned in the early 90s, like the 949A. By a willful decision, they completed the construction of "Peter the Great" and "Chabanenko". Then a natural lapse in time ...
      The absolute numbers do not reflect much, but the payroll has decreased by about 70-75% if not more

      Do you know how much was received for the "sale" of this gigantic armada, most of which did not serve half the term?
      Less than 30 million dollars.
      Building one destroyer costs exactly 10 times more expensive.
      And how in a hurry to sell! Even the secret equipment was not dismantled from the aircraft carriers of the Pacific Fleet "Minsk" and "Novorossiysk".

    It would be more pleasant to read the type "The production capacities of the shipbuilding plants allowed us to additionally fulfill orders for the construction of ships for export." They would look good in the base of any of the Russian fleets. Directly ready strike aircraft carrier group with a support tanker and a submarine flotilla.
    "Successful execution of export orders shows." I would have shown no less for myself during construction.
    Good luck to the shipbuilders. The architecture of our ships has always pleased the eye. About the filling, the experts will share.

      This is partly true - Rogozin somehow let slip that "we have Vikramaditya", at first glance, a usual chatter, but oddly enough confirmed by facts:
      - there is no Indian crew, which, judging by this article, 1924 people, only a small unit, according to one of the old articles 347 people, but at the same time, the transfer team of Sevmash goes to the transition and there is a Russian military crew
      - India sent 1 frigate of the same type (Trikand) mentioned in the article for the escort of its flagship, and he threw it in the Barents Sea (although this is an area with very muddy water, where Kursk drowned and wild torpedoes live /6-trevoga-podo-ldom.html), despite the fact that Vikramaditya is defenseless in a storm - airplanes do not fly, but there is no own artillery and missiles.
      Americans are guarding combat-ready aircraft carriers in peacetime with a whole group of ships, and the Indians do not care about the flagship?
      - the order of sailing to India is amazing - the whole collection of dates is called either solo sailing, then with Kuznetsov together, but instead of guarding the aircraft carrier, Indian sailors visit the cemetery ...
      So India is a wonderland, and Russia is a fairy tale ... and Rogozin first told the truth - then he was an aircraft carrier.

      If you are talking about "Chakra" for India, then navryatli. There seems to be leasing. They will probably buy it back. In the meantime, they will use them to develop their own experience in operating nuclear submarines (by the way, they have already done this).

        After the collapse of the USSR "Cheetahs" for themselves the Indians undertook to finance, but refused at the last moment. "Tatarstan" was supposed for them.
        And in the Caspian - 2 "Cheetah", not 3. And both - completion of the Soviet backlog.

    As you can see from the table, most of the orders were carried out at that time. when nothing happened for myself. And if it was built, it took a very long time. The laws of the market, according to which Russia is trying to live today, has not yet been canceled. Consequently, in the years of shuffling from side to side under Ivanov and the total squandering and "moronism" of Serdyukovshchina, orders carried out for LIVE money allow you to save STAFF. People want to eat, and for g .... I doubt that anyone would stay at the factories. But now, when the Russian Federation seems to be rising from its knees and is trying to build something, the presence of retained experienced personnel will play an important role.
    The ability to draw pluses from minuses makes a person wise and smart. If they would build for themselves in conditions of lack of money and refuse foreign contracts, then those who remained would also scatter, but now they would sit at a broken trough and ask the eternal question: "What to do?" Or they would learn to build anew (!). Otherwise, we were smart enough not to completely destroy what our fathers and grandfathers created during the Soviet Union. And what they built for others is unlikely to turn against us. And there is no need to grieve over this, but hatya would be glad that thanks to these orders they themselves remained on their feet.
    This is just my opinion.

      and even better to plant thieves and crooks, embezzlers, build ships for their own fleet.

      justified by export orders is not worth it. More than 1 trillion dollars have been withdrawn from Russia. This is just the tip of the iceberg. With that kind of money, you can not only save the production, but also seriously equip the fleet with the necessary ships and boats.

      Not everything was saved. Amur shipbuilding, despite the assurances of the GDP that we would save, died. Apparently it's hard to get to orders from the hinterland. And market regulation does not work in the Russian Federation without an "administrative resource".
      As a vivid example, the manufacture of SU aircraft at KnAAZ, for China. Fewer orders reach Komsomolsk, and more to the center.

    Thanks to these exports, Russia can still build both the agricultural sector and any surface ships. Without them, they would now sit and suck their paw, but they would buy old stuff from the same French and Italians.

    Now it is important that they put shipyards and design bureaus on a solid financial foundation and allow them to develop independently. And then everything is still being done with a creak and not always the wishes of the customer can be fulfilled.

    For another five years, General Serdyukov-Taburetkin would have directed the defense of the country and the last soldier’s underpants would have left the auction, what can we say about ships! We sell our own, we buy Mistral
    Damn oriental bazaar, and not the Ministry of Defense! Buy sell in one word! Well, really, the ass of the enth merchant and the ass of his harem will not wait for the sweet moment, when they are put on a stake? This is a purely Slavic award for such faithful service to the fatherland, a tradition can be said! There is a forest in Russia so there is no need to regret it, Russian soul Wide soul!

    Well done and sold. We worked on ships technology, skills. Well done. Now we are building for ourselves, forgetting about the service infrastructure. It would be more interesting to look at our achievements in terms of construction and repair of moorings and other things. And then without ships our ships will live a little.

    Here to the Indians, without any antics - THANKS! Several shipyards in Russia survived with their orders, otherwise it would have turned out - and money for the fleet appeared in the Russian Federation, and no specialists, no equipment, no shipyards ... And now the hope for the revival of the fleet is growing. "Tsushima of Yeltsin times" has already been overcome winked

    Basically, the comments correctly reflect the current moment. The sale helped the shipbuilders survive. But we must not forget that every ship sold to another state is like a deposit in a bank. Operation, training of foreign crews, maintenance, modernization - everything costs money, the owner pays the money, the same India, China, Vietnam. The political aspect is very important. The countries in which the armies of the Russian aircraft, tanks, and ships are potential allies.

    The auxiliary vessels, of course, are necessary, but this is far from the rise of our fleet, as they say. Put pluses there imbitsilam or what?

    Here is Lun, what a power :)
    As far as I remember, Orlenka’s speed was up to 400 km / h, is another military transport ship capable of this? With a company of marines on board or with 2 BPM.

    Head №891 - Laid 03.07.02 - Lowered 27.04.04 - Transmitted 28.12.05 138 "Taizhou"
    Head #892 - Laid 15.11.02 - Lowered 23.07.04 - Transmitted to 28.09.06 139 "Ningbo"

    If so, then pretty quickly 2 destroyers were built in 2 years!

    We survived dashing years, somewhere it was - nine Tsushims a year were received by the USSR fleet during the years of “perestroika.” In dollars, counting across the entire national economy is tens of trillions. In theory, America and the West are still alive on the plundering of the USSR. In China, in 5 years, from a village with wooden toilets, from which flowed and smelled all over the street (two!), A modern city with multi-storey shopping centers and houses grew on the banks of the Amur -towers. We have climbed, they are disposable sneakers for us, and we are strategic raw materials for them. Nothing, and we will probably rise, there are prospects!
