In Tatarstan, the 8 th was laid for the small rocket ship of the 21631 project for the Russian Navy.

In the city of Zelenodolsk (Republic of Tatarstan) the other day, the laying of the next (eighth in a row) ship of project 21631 took place. The ceremony of laying the ship, held at the Gorky Zelenodolsk plant, was attended by the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Viktor Chirkov, Commander of the Black Sea Fleet Alexander Vitko, Commander of the Caspian flotilla Ildar Akhmerov, representatives of the leadership of Tatarstan and the Zelenodolsk plant directly, as well as the head of Ingushetia, Yunus-Bek Evkurov. It is reported official site OAO Zelenodolsk Plant named after A.M. Gorky.

The presence of the head of the Republic of Ingushetia at the groundbreaking ceremony for a small rocket ship is explained by the fact that the ship of the 21631 project will be named Ingushetia. This IRC will replenish the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation.

At the moment, one of the ships of the same project (Veliky Ustyug) is being tested in the Caspian Sea. Two such ships (Grad Sviyazhsk and Uglich) are already serving in the Caspian Flotilla. The Zelenodolsk enterprise is building more 4-x small rocket ships of the 21631 project. These are “Serpukhov”, “Vyshniy Volochek”, “Orekhovo-Zuyevo”, and also “Green Dol”, named after the place where its construction is going.

The ISCs of the 21631 project are universal ships of the "river-sea" class. Displacement of the ship 949 tons, crew up to 36 people (in certain versions - up to 52). Autonomy - 10 days. Rocket armament of the ship is presented in the following form: 1 × 8 "Caliber" or "Onyx", 2 PU 3М47-01 "Bending" with the Igr "Igla" ("Needle-M").

      The Minister of Defense of Ukraine said that Russia threatens Kiev with nuclear weapons.
      Russia promises to use nuclear weapons against Ukraine. This was announced on his Facebook page by the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Valery Geletey. wassat

      So from the Caspian, they are normally transferred to the Black Sea Fleet through the Volga-Don Canal, if necessary. Hence, in fact, the UKKS with Onyx / Caliber.

    Well, well, "Dagestan" and "Ingushetia" already exist, the next ship should be called "Nokhcho", although "Furious Ramzan" would have sounded better, although due to Ramzan Akhmadovich's well-known modesty (no fools !!!), they will call "Akhmat Khadzhi" ", or he will give up until the atomic cruiser" VVP "is available.
    Well, if it's no joke, then this is already the third MRK project from the so-called. "Black Sea order". Someone, but Zelenodol residents are working so that one can only envy: 2 missile defense systems pr. 11661, 2 IAC pr. 21630, 2 MRK pr. 21631 (the third is at the GKhI, 5 more are under construction, 12 ordered in total); 7 prDKA pr.21980. However, I really hope that the order will be changed upward, since such RTOs with the Kalibr-NK missile system, capable of striking high-precision cruise missiles both at sea and ground targets at a distance of 220-500 km, will not interfere with us at all at the Baltic Fleet, in the Kaliningrad region, to strike at missile defense facilities and NATO bases in Poland. After all, in fact, this is a cruise missile floating base, made using stealth technology.

    Launch of the Kalibr-NK complex missile from the Grad Sviyazhsk MRK, pr.21361
    1. Matrosov
      Matrosov 1 September 2014 17: 01
      Yes, I agree to increase the order. Unfortunately, while we do not have enough funds, such "babies" will be quite a good alternative, well, we still do not have destroyer-class ships, so MRK, Corvettes, frigates, we cannot encroach on the far Sea zone in full force , but they must store their shores with high quality!

        Dear Alexey, of the 4 of our fleets, only 2: Northern and Pacific, can be fully called oceanic, Baltic with its Danish and Black Sea with its Turkish straits are marine.
        Everything in the Caspian Sea is covered with chocolate, new ships regularly arrive, and it's hard to challenge us there: 2 missile defense systems pr.11661, moreover "Dagestan" with UKSK from "Caliber-NK", 2 new MRK pr.21631, by the end of the year waiting for "Veliky Ustyug", RCA pr.12411T, 3 RCA pr.206, plus new DKA pr.11770 "Serna" and 21820 "Dugong". It came to that from the Caspian Sea, they began to give ships to other fleets, so last year they took the newest RCA, project 12421 R-32 with the Mosquito missile defense system at the BF, this year the Serna and Grachonok left the Caspian order for the Black Sea Fleet ". However, this year CFL will still get a couple of "Serne"
        In the Baltic, the situation is also improving: despite the fact that the "Nasty" pr. 956 regularly goes for repairs due to problems with the DKU, and the TFR "Fearless" pr. 11540 is under repair until the end of next year, the fleet was sufficiently updated, in 2009 received the TFR "Yaroslav the Wise" pr. 11540, which has now left for Mediterranean, where it will be replaced by the Black Sea "Sharp-witted", and 4 corvettes of pr.20380. Plus old, but still quite solid 4 MRK pr. 1234, 7 MPK pr.1331M and 8 RCA pr. 1241. The composition of the landing forces is also updated: 2 DKA pr.11770 "Serna" and the DKA pr. 21820 "Dugong" began to arrive, so by the end of the year the BF should receive the Denis Davydov and Lieutenant Rimsky-Korsakov project, plus this year the repair of the MDKVP pr. 12322 "Evgeny Kocheshkov" has been completed. There is a problem with the submarine, since the B-585 "St. Petersburg" pr. 677 "Lada" went to the Northern Fleet, and the B-806 "Dmitrov" pr. 877 is being repaired, but there is also progress here: this year, the repair of B- 227 Vyborg pr.877, plus diesel-electric submarines SF, first B-800 Kaluga, and now B-471 Magnitogorsk regularly visit the Baltic.
        On the Black Sea, we are preparing for a major upgrade, by the end of the year 2 diesel-electric submarines of pr.636.3 should be delivered, the first B-261 "Novorossiysk", already delivered on August 22, the second B-237 "Rostov-on-Don", has already entered the GKHI, plus the first SKR pr. 11356 "Admiral Grigorovich", it seems that SKR pr. 1135 "Ladny" should get out of repair, and the Bulgarians fussed in advance and repaired the large landing craft pr. 775 "Caesar Kunnikov" ahead of schedule. 871 "Alrosa" and in general the situation on the oldest fleet of the country will already become bearable. Plus, do not forget about the ships of the former Ukrainian Navy (2 MPK pr. 1124, 1 MPK pr. 1241.2, 1 RCA pr. 12411T, 2 MTShch pr. 1265, BDK pr. 775, 1 KU pr. 12884), which, in the event of a political decision to include them in our Navy, can also strengthen the power of the Black Sea Fleet.
        It is still calm in the North, there are both "Kuzya" and "Peter the Great", plus the Fleet received the newest nuclear submarine pr.885 K-560 "Severodvinsk" and diesel-electric submarine B-585 "St. Petersburg" pr.677 "Lada" arrived from the Baltic. Yes, and "Zvezdochka" works like clockwork last year, the modernized B-800 Kaluga, by the end of this year it is planned to transfer the similarly modernized B-459 Vladikavkaz to the fleet. And besides this, frigates of project 22350 and corvettes of project 20385 are also being built there.
        Remains the Pacific Fleet and all the new ships, which received only 2 Boreas (Vladimir Monomakh by the end of this year) and a Mistral-class UDC. The Amur Shipyard regularly misses the deadlines, so the unfortunate corvette of the project 20380 "Perfect" has been "tortured" for 8 years (laid down in 2006) and has not even been launched so far. A similar situation is with the "Loud" and "Rezvy", which are under construction, which have not even been laid yet. And all this against the backdrop of the growing fleets of Japan, China and South Korea by leaps and bounds.

      Three go to the Black Sea Fleet? Pts. well! Zelenodoltsy are great, if we add 3 Vietnamese. And even earlier, how many they riveted 1124, for export 1159 (and its development 11661), 1154 ("Fearless" and "Yaroslav the Wise") their project, although they were built in Kaliningrad. In general, it is very correct that such an enterprise was created, worked effectively and survived in the center of Russia, far from the seas!

      It looks like you put the Indians here, no offense. The nearest frigate to their construction (I forgot the project number, it’s too lazy to look for, but surely it), then five of our buildings 61ME ("singing frigates"). And the seventh - it looks like our project 159 too.

    Zelenodolsky plant seems to have received good power in the Crimea:

    Information about the power seizure of JSC "Kerch Shipbuilding Plant" Zaliv "appeared on the morning of August 25 (...). The enterprise was blocked by representatives of people's self-defense and OJSC Zelenodolsk Plant named after Gorky "(...) the plant is operating normally (...).

    On the same day, the Minister of Industrial Policy of Crimea Andrei Skrynnik, (...) announced the need for radical solutions for the stable operation of the enterprise, which is in poor condition: loading - 5%, 600 people from the team work part-time, that is, there is inefficient control. Moreover, since the enterprise belongs to the Ukrainian oligarch Konstantin Zhevago (...), it cannot count on state support from the Russian government. Skrynnik pointed out a corporate conflict: some of the shareholders, together with the labor collective, insist on development, and some slow down these processes. As a result, the former, with the help of self-defense, removed the latter from the leadership. The latter (...) announced a raider seizure of the enterprise carried out on August 24 by Zaliv Shipbuilding LLC, registered several days earlier in Moscow. And it is headed by a representative of the Zelenodolsk plant Andrei Zherdev. On August 25 at a team meeting, he (...) announced that Zaliv Shipbuilding LLC took all the Zaliv production facilities on a long-term lease. (...)

    The press service (...) stated: “Persons involved in the fact that one of the largest shipbuilding companies in Europe has been put on the brink of disaster has been removed from the management of the company. Now we are primarily talking about the Ukrainian oligarch Konstantin Zhevago, (...) and the former marketing director Valeria Belozerova. All schemes of theft are known, in the near future Zhevago and his henchmen will be engaged in law enforcement agencies. ”

    Note that the "Bay" and the plant them. Gorky is not mentioned together for the first time. (...) Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said that the plant them. Gorky has already named a number of ships and ships that will be built in the Crimea. (...) that the plant them. Gorky plans to establish cooperation with the Gulf on the completion of warships, as well as to recreate there his delivery base, which was in effect until 1994.

    In Zelenodolsk, they deny the use of force to resolve the issue, but they do not hide their completely commercial interest in the Gulf. “Capture ?! We have only one interest - to legally acquire this plant and place orders that have already been contracted for today, ”the director general of the plant named after BUSINESS Online told BUSINESS Online yesterday. Gorky Renat Mistakhov. According to him, negotiations on the acquisition of the Gulf were conducted in Moscow with representatives of Zhevago, who to this day remains the owner of the enterprise (...).

    Earlier it was reported that the United Shipbuilding Corporation and Rosneft are interested in the Gulf, and that the Russian government wants to make the Gulf the core of the Crimean shipbuilding cluster.

    (...) Once the Gulf was one of the most serious enterprises in the shipbuilding industry of Ukraine, (...) In the 1980 - 1996 years, the plant built a series of tankers with a deadweight of 65 thousand tons. A series of stationary oil platforms for Vietnam was built. The plant is known as the builder of the flagship of the Ukrainian Navy - BPC "Getman Sagaidachny" (laid down in the 1990 year as "Kirov"). The plant annually built up 3 - 4 hulls of dry cargo vessels and container ships and repaired up to 35 ships of various classes. ...

      So it seems that he used to have a outfitting base in the Crimea (Kerch), tk. all built ships passed factory and state tests there (not on the Volga). And in Novorossiysk they began to experience not the good life. There was a sad example of damage caused by the storm to "Tatarstan" in the Novorossiysk port. And Vietnamese orders were tested and brought to mind in the Baltic, too, not from a good life (from Ukraine).

    One ship stuffed with weapons on the top deck of the destroyer class will certainly be more profitable in operation, but more expensive in cost, development and production, especially in terms of time, and in the absence of such a banal design, it is better to distribute strike capabilities to cheaper and more massive ships, at the same time numerical the composition of the Navy will be replenished, and also qualitatively.

    At least he will cover the Bosphorus in the Black Sea reliably. And several of these ships, if desired, will be locked up. Eight Gauges or Onyxes is not a joke, even if they are fired from Quarantine Bay itself.

    So, what has the fleet received or plans to receive this year:
    I will not focus on the K-560 "Severodvinsk" pr. 885 "Ash" for the Northern Fleet and the MRK pr. 21631 "Uglich" and "Grad Sviyazhsk" for the KFL: these are ships transferred to the fleet last year, this year they were introduced into combat composition. A similar situation is with the B-585 "St. Petersburg" pr.677 "Lada", which was transferred to the fleet for trial operation, already in 2010, and the Northern Fleet will be added to the combat composition only in this.

    Surface ships:
    - the first UDC "Mistal" - "Vladivostok" for the Pacific Fleet, together with 4 submarines of the French project CTM NG. The UDC is already under sea trials, and if everything goes well and our "friends" do not throw some other nasty stuff, then on November 1 it will become part of the Navy, becoming the first rank 1 ship put into operation after 1996, when the fleet was transferred " Peter the Great ".

    -SKR pr.11356 "Admiral Grigorovich" for the Black Sea Fleet. The ship is in a high degree of readiness, they plan to take it to the GKI in the fall, and given our love for round dates, they can hand it over to the fleet, for example, before the New Year.

    -corvette pr.20380 "Stoic" for the Baltic Fleet, transferred to the fleet on July 27, This is the third serial and fourth ship of the project, built by Severnaya Verf. The Amur Shipyard traditionally disrupts the state defense order, the first ship of the project "Perfect" under construction there, laid down in the same 2006, like the "Stoyky", has not even been launched yet.

    -MRK pr.21631 "Veliky Ustyug" for KFl. RTOs undergo GKhI and will be transferred to the fleet by the end of the year.

    towing MRK "Veliky Ustyug" to the Caspian Sea
    The frigate of project 22350 "Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov", I'm afraid this year will not be transferred to the fleet. Although there is some good progress here, the AU was finally delivered to Severnaya Verf, which should be installed in the coming days.

    Thus, we have exactly 3 of the ship of 1-3 rank, possibly even 1 and unlikely more 1.

      Does anyone know if the laying of the sixth frigate of project 11356 is planned this year or not? The same thing with frigates 22350, will there be bookmarks this year?
      1. Anton Gavrilov
        Anton Gavrilov 1 September 2014 18: 18
        22350 most likely there is no place in the shop filled to capacity only if Kasatonov is withdrawn. The 6 th 11356P / M should after the withdrawal of the 4 th ship of the series from the boathouse.

      Roman 1977 1 September 2014 18: 31
      4 PrDKA pr. 21980 "Grachonok" (2 for the Black Sea Fleet, 2 for the Pacific Fleet). Moreover, the P-355, from the "Caspian order" has already been transferred to the Black Sea Fleet on August 22. The second PRDKA on August 14 began the transition from Zelenodolsk to Novorossiysk, where he will have to go through all stages of sea trials and state tests, after which it will be transferred to the Black Sea Fleet.

      P-420 for the Pacific Fleet so far at the GHI, at least there have been no reports of its admission to the Navy. Another Predka 4 launched on July, it is planned to transfer the Navy before the end of the year.

      3 DKA Project 11770 "Serna" (2-KFl, 1-ChF). DKA D-199 was accepted into the Black Sea Fleet on August 4, the other two "Serny", flying in Gorodets, went to the Caspian Sea to receive the CFL.

      4 DKA pr.21820 "Dugong" (1-Pacific Fleet, 2-BF, 1 possibly Black Sea Fleet). "Ivan Kartsov" for the Pacific Fleet is undergoing GKhI. "Denis Davydov" from June 25 is the GKhI at the BF. "Lieutenant Rimsky-Korsakov" on August 15 went to the Baltic for the State Art Institute.

      "Midshipman Lermontov", launched on June 5, was originally planned for the Baltic Sea Fleet, the issue of changing the base at the Black Sea Fleet is being considered.

      2 patrol boats pr. 12150A "Mongoose" for BF, demonstrated at the Navy Day parade in Baltiysk this year.

      9 patrol boats pr. 03160 "Raptor": one in service, one on trials 7 under construction.

      A total of 22 boats (with the French -26): 4 Ships, 11 PSA, 11 DKA.
