New Chinese destroyer project 052D

As the Periscope.2, Renmin portal has published an article by famous Chinese military scientist, Rear Admiral Yin Kyaw, in which he shared information about the characteristics of the new destroyer of the 052D project. According to Rear Admiral, the capabilities of the ship roughly correspond to the capabilities of the American Arleigh Burke, but at the same time it has a lower displacement and missile ammunition.

It is noted that the cost of the newest Chinese surface ship with a displacement of 7000 tons is approximately 560 million dollars.

According to Yin Zhuo, two installations of vertical launch with 64 cells will allow 2-3 to repel massive air attacks. In addition, the destroyer can carry anti-submarine missiles, as well as cruise missiles to destroy ground targets.

The ship is equipped with an advanced digital radar complex with a wider range of headlamps and the number of accompanied targets, a new air defense system with HQ-9B missiles towed by an HUS and two PLO helicopters. It is also reported that Chinese experts managed to achieve a reduction in acoustic and radar conspicuity of the destroyer.

        Wow Chinese! It is not strange but armed very well especially considering the ammunition. Even if you suddenly imagine that their missiles are copies of Soviet missiles, then I sympathize with the enemy! At this pace, they will soon do their own thing: cunning, cheap and effective!

    According to China Military News, the new destroyer is equipped with two vertical missile launchers with 64 cells each to launch HQ-9B anti-ship and anti-ship missiles. The original Type052C YJ-62 anti-ship missile launchers are apparently not present on the new destroyer. It was speculated that the Type 052D might be equipped with the marine version of the DH-10 long-range land-based cruise missile.

      Well, we are also developing ...
      "The Russian Navy in 2014 plans to accept more than 40 warships, submarines and support vessels of various classes," the Defense Ministry said.

      The representatives of the department explained that during the year the patrol ships of the project 11356, the small missile ships of the project 21631, the anti-sabotage boats of the project 21980, the rescue ship "Igor Belousov" should be commissioned. In addition, it is planned to lay down several support vessels, such as an icebreaker of project 21180, a self-propelled floating crane of project 02690 and others, "the press service added.

        Great news, the namesake is just great, crying those. the ship of the ocean zone-frigate of project 22350 "Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov" this year the fleet will not receive. AU was not installed on it, although the 130-mm A-192M "Arsenal" swore to deliver immediately after the New Year. And this despite the fact that in terms of its cost per unit, "Admiral Gorshkov" has already surpassed the UDC "Vladivostok", which is being completed in France (approaching 6-ton Frems in price). When the ship was laid in 000, it was assumed that the lead ship would be commissioned in 2006, and its price would be about 2009 billion rubles. Then the deadline was pushed back to 7, and the price increased to 2012 billion (18 million euros), now it is already 420 (the cost of one UDC for the Russian Navy is known - 2014 million euros, Fremm for the French Navy 490 million euros) At best, we will get its as SSBN project 592, MPLATRK project 955 "Severodvinsk", diesel-electric submarines of project 855 "St. Petersburg" before the New Year in trial operation, the same "St. Petersburg" mentioned in it for 677 years. And they will bring him with grief in half to a combat-ready state, and given the fact that he is planned for the Black Sea Fleet, he will get there at best in 4.

        Now about 40 ships, let's count:
        1 SSBN project 955 "Vladimir Monomakh" for the Pacific Fleet, hopefully not in trial operation.

        1 frigate of project 11356 "Admiral Grigorovich" for the Black Sea Fleet, but taking into account the tests (mooring are planned to start only in the fall) and the time of its transition from the Baltic to the World Championship, it will enter the fleet only in 2015.

          1 diesel-electric submarine of project 636.3 "Novorossiysk" for the Black Sea Fleet, according to the plan, tests should begin at the end of June, well, again, the question arises about the transition from the Baltic to the World Cup, especially since the situation of the B-871 "Alrosa" is not clear, according to some reports it is not capable of combat , and if this is so, then we have no submarines in the Black Sea Fleet, except for the acquired "Zaporozhye", about whose "merits" I will keep silent.

          1 corvette of project 20380 "Stoyky", for the Baltic Fleet, has passed the test cycle, the transfer to the fleet is scheduled for May 14;

          1 MRK project 21631 "Veliky Ustyug" for KFL, its predecessors "Grad Sviyazhsk" and "Uglich", already in the KFL, go to sea, participate in exercises, shoot, incl. and "Caliber", however, OFFICIALLY, for some reason, they were not accepted into the fleet. It can be seen about their acceptance into the fleet and they say about the delivery of MRK project 21631.

          5 PrDKa project 21980 "Grachonok" (2 for the Black Sea Fleet, 1 for the KFl, 2 for the Pacific Fleet - in relation to one with the serial number 8003 on February 24.02.2014, XNUMX, an acceptance certificate was signed).

          3 submarine spacecraft of project 21820 "Dugong": 1 "Ivan Kartsov" is being tested at the Pacific Fleet; 2 Denis Davydov for KFL and Lieutenant Rimsky-Korsakov were launched.

            2 DKA of the 11770 project “Chamois” for CFL. They hibernated in Gorodets, but according to my data they have already gone to Astrakhan for admission to the fleet.

            So warships and boats: 17, of which 2 MRK project 21631, 1 DKA project 21820 "Dugong", 2 DKA project 11770 "Chamois" should be delivered to the fleet last year.
            Of the planned ships of the ocean zone 1 SSBNs of project 955 "Vladimir Monomakh", sea zone-2 ("Admiral Grigorovich" and "Novorossiysk"), near sea zone-1 ("Stoyky").
            I do not consider the UDC of the Mistral - Vladivostok type yet, because the situation with the French is not completely clear, and besides, it will enter the fleet without weapons, and the Ka-52Ks have been ordered for it only this year, i.e. it will become fully operational only in 2015.

            For auxiliary vessels:
            1 BRZK project 18280 "Yuri Ivanov" for the Pacific Fleet;

            1 SS project 21300 "Igor Belousov" for the Northern Fleet;

            1 R / V project 22010 "Yantar" for BF, d.b. delivered last year, but there is no data on delivery to the fleet;
            1 KASV of the 1388NZ-project was spotted at the end of last year during tests in Novorossiysk;

            1 rescue vessel of the project 22870 RB-45-on trials.

            1 BGK of the 19920 project for Pacific Fleet;
            3 RB of the 16609 project (1 for BF, 2 for SF);
            2 EB of the project PE-65 for SF-on tests;
            6 ASKA of the 23040 project (2 for CFL, 1 launched yesterday, 4 for BF)
            Total: 17 auxiliary vessels and boats.

      While the Chinese are baking like pies destroyers (construction period 2-3 years), frigates (construction period 1-2 years) and corvettes (construction period 1 months-22350 year), we cannot complete the project 4500 frigate "Admiral of the Soviet Union Fleet Gorshkov" with a displacement of 1 tons, laid down on February 2006, 8 (the construction period is already 20380 years!), and the construction period for corvettes of project 2220, with a total displacement of 7 tons, is 8-XNUMX years.

        With corvettes, everything is as simple as it seems at first glance. The last of them 2 of the year stood in the form of a mortgage section, so that it was built only 5 years, the same applies to the 3 ship built on the SF.

    The evolution of Chinese destroyers (clickable)

    The first destroyers of the PLA Navy were four Project 7 ships from the Pacific Fleet (type "Anshan") transferred to the USSR. In China, they served until the early 1990s, receiving additional missile weapons during the service. For a long time these were the largest surface ships of the fleet. Of the four ships, two are now museums, and one is used as a teaching aid at the Dalian Naval Academy. Further - the destroyer of project 051 ("Luida", based on the Soviet project 56), its radically modified version of the project 051GII "Zhuhai", project 051C "Shenzhen" (not serially built), project 956E, project 052B, project 052C. Modifications of each of the base types are not shown, as well as the newest destroyer of the 052D project.
