Fleet not shamed

Nobody expected such activeness from the Russian sailors in the Syrian conflict


The Russian fleet demonstrated a high level of combat readiness in Syria, not only having managed to create a fairly large grouping of ships in the Mediterranean, but also launched an effective missile attack on ground targets from 1500 kilometers, unexpectedly using small and relatively inexpensive ships of the near sea zone.

The first information about the beginning of the active operations of the Russian Navy was received on October 7, when it became known that a group of ships of the Caspian launched a missile strike flotilla Russian Navy on the objects of the "Islamic State". In the salvo, 26 Caliber-NK-type missiles were fired, which hit 11 targets in Syria controlled by the Islamic State armed forces.

Small but strong


It is worth a bit to dwell on which ships took part in this strike. Judging by the military composition of the Caspian Flotilla, it is the guard (rocket) ship “Dagestan” of the 11661 project (type “Cheetah”) and three small rocket ships of the 21631 project - “Grad Sviyazhsk”, “Uglich” and “Veliky Ustyug” (of the “Buyan- M ”). All of these ships each have an eight-cell DPS allowing the use of Caliber and Onyx missiles. There are no other ships in the Caspian flotilla that are armed with such a missile system. The launch of the 26 missiles means that the entire available shipboard personnel of the Caspian flotilla, armed with long-range cruise missiles of the Caliber-NK type (the largest ammunition load available on these four ships of the flotilla, is 32 missiles) was involved. This indicates a sufficiently high level of technical condition of the ship composition of the Caspian flotilla, at least that part of it, which is represented by new ships.

Fleet not shamed


In total, there are four units of guard (rocket) ships of the "Cheetah" type in the Russian Navy, two of which are part of the Caspian Flotilla. This is a multipurpose ship, which, with the full displacement of 1930 tons, has quite powerful armament. In addition to the above-mentioned eight-cell TLU for the Kalibr-NK CRDB, it has powerful electronic weapons, including highly efficient SIGMA ICS, Monolith RLC, which allows for the scouting of surface targets by means of active radar and radio intelligence, anti-aircraft weapons and anti-submarine weapons. In the Caspian Sea, this ship has no equivalent enemy. True, its anti-submarine capabilities in this theater of operations are hardly required, the shallow depths in most of the Caspian Sea do not allow the use of submarines.

Small missile ships of the “Buyan-M” type are more in tune with the peculiarities of the Caspian MTVD. With a significantly smaller displacement (949 tons) and draft, they carry the same strike armament as the Gepard-type ships, the TLV on eight cells for the Kalibr-NK missile defense system, have powerful 100-mm single-barrel AU A-190, allowing solve the problem of fire support troops on the coastal direction.

The flight trajectories of the rocket salvo they executed ran across Iran and Iraq. Moreover, the Iraqi sector took place for the most part over the territory controlled by the Islamic State. The missile overflight was agreed with the governments of Iraq and Iran through the newly created coalition focal point in Baghdad.

Consumption weapons to hit one target made up two or three missiles (on 11 targets 26 missiles). The flight time of missiles to targets could range from an hour to one and a half depending on the distance of the target and the chosen flight path, which was set individually for each missile, bypassing the air defense zones and areas of dense location of the armed forces of the Islamic State. With a high-explosive type warhead weighing 400 kilograms and an accuracy of five to seven meters, we can conclude that the targets were relatively small objects of the type of compactly located groups of buildings or reinforced concrete structures. Most likely, it could be the operational and strategic management points of the Islamic State, weapons and ammunition depots of central subordination, or military equipment repair companies. The fact that such a large number of objects was able to hit such a large number of weapons (as confirmed by objective control) testifies to the high technical reliability of the missiles themselves.

The missile salvo area was located in the southern part of the Caspian Sea. The time it takes for the ship strike group to advance to the area at the economic speed of 14 – 18 knots is 12 – 16 hours. Taking into account the time to return to the base, the preparation of flight missions for new missiles, the replenishment of ammunition and the return to the launch point, a re-salvo can take place in two to three days upon receipt of a relevant order and if there are enough such missiles in place doubt. It is absolutely clear that ships of the Caspian flotilla cannot exert fire influence on the militants of the “Islamic state” with other weapons.

Black Sea in readiness

In addition to the ships of the Caspian Flotilla, the formation of the Black Sea Fleet also takes part in hostilities against the Islamic State. True, while the Black Sea community did not enter into fire contact with the enemy, participating in these hostilities in a different way. Currently, there are five Russian warships in the northwestern part of the Mediterranean. However, in the first days of combat operations by the Russian group in Syria, their numbers were 15 units. The main part arrived in the area shortly before the start of the active phase of the fighting. The core is the shipboard shock group led by the 1164 project “Moscow” missile cruiser and including three escort ships - Ladny (1135 Ave), Pytlivy (1135M Ave) and Sharpy (01090 Ave).

In addition to this strike group in the Russian fleet near the coast of Syria, there was a combination of amphibious and support ships. Among them are four large amphibious ships (BDK): two 1171 projects (Saratov and Nikolai Filchenkov) and two 775 projects (Azov and Caesar Kunikov), a large naval tanker Ivan Bubnov, a shipmaster PM -56 "and auxiliary ship-keeper" KIL-158 ". In addition, in the Eastern Mediterranean zone deployed reconnaissance ship "Tatishchev."

The capabilities of the ship strike group are determined by the ship of its core - the missile cruiser “Moscow”. From the composition of its very diverse armaments, it is worthwhile to single out those systems that are most relevant for the solution of the tasks that were set for the shipboard strike group headed by them. This is primarily an anti-ship missile system "Vulkan", the missiles of which allow strikes against large enemy surface ships at a distance of 700 kilometers. With this weapon, the RKR "Moscow" is capable of crushing the NATO naval strike group consisting of a cruiser and two destroyers of URO. He is also capable of disabling an average aircraft carrier from a small-sized carrier group, such as, for example, the United Kingdom or France.

Other ships from the strike group cannot make a significant contribution to countering large surface forces or the defense of the Russian base due to the lack of appropriate weapons, without having long-range missile systems and having anti-aircraft fire to ensure only self-defense ship strike.

It should be particularly noted that in fact the entire ship structure of the Black Sea Fleet, capable of operating in the far sea zone, is sent to the Mediterranean Sea, which indicates that the level of technical serviceability of the ships is quite high. That is, over the previous two years, it was possible to carry out all the necessary repairs to restore the combat capability of the Black Sea Fleet.

The composition of the naval connection of Russia off the coast of Syria is changing regularly. So, part of the ship group, mainly landing ships, as well as the tanker left the Eastern Mediterranean. And on October 8 it became known that two ISCs - “Musson” and “Samum” passed the Bosphorus Strait, moving to the shores of Syria.

It is known from reliable sources that, in the future, the ship group from the Northern Fleet may also be sent to this area according to the plan of rotation of the ship. Thus, the Russian fleet takes a very active part in the hostilities in Syria, playing a key role in the logistics of the hostilities.

        I doubt that the departure of "Teddy" is associated with the "Caliber".
        The second thing that caused some concern:
        With this weapon, the RKR “Moscow” is able to defeat the NATO naval strike group as part of the cruiser and two URO destroyers. He is also able to disable an average aircraft carrier from a small carrier group, such as, for example, the United Kingdom or France.

        AUGs of France or Great Britain are unlikely to appear there, but to confront the AUGs of the USA, surface forces of the Black Sea Fleet are rather weak, considering
        that in fact the entire Black Sea Fleet, capable of operating in the far sea zone, was sent to the Mediterranean Sea, which indicates that the level of technical serviceability of the ships is quite high.

        But also about the insufficiency of forces and means.

          I guess, yes. Black Sea Fleet deficiency is evident, especially considering the need for action in the Mediterranean Sea. At the same time, in fact, in the Black Sea Basin the situation is somewhat different. There are already coastal aviation and coastal troops with anti-ship missiles. and it makes no sense for Americans to send nuclear carriers to the World Cup (and the Montreux Convention is not the point, which makes it difficult for such ships to pass through the straits). We have the "unsinkable aircraft carrier" Crimea. And they have Turkey and Southern Europe (empty with reservations, but there are). So any hypothetical conflict is a complex thing. this is the fleet and aviation, and much more ...

            I had in mind the actions in the Mediterranean. At the World Cup, of course, the situation is changing dramatically, given the various ships supported by the coastal defense. But in light of the desires, the “pipi ** kami" will be measured by the world hegemon for their influence in the Mediterranean, it seems to me that the conclusion that the strengthening of the Black Sea Fleet is necessary may not be as monumental as the RKR Moskva, but they have such the composition of weapons, which would strengthen the flagship and give the KGB the ability to strike along the coast.

              in fact, these ships are going to rearm the Black Sea Fleet. First of all, these are 6 frigates of 11356. plus a minimum of 3 Buyan M. Just PU for the "Caliber". There are some difficulties with 11356 in view of the fact that the GEM is Ukrainian. But, like the parent and two serial will be introduced during 15-16. and then it will be seen. In general, in fact, it is the Black Sea Fleet that is subject to priority rearmament. 6 pcs. DEPL, 6 pcs. 11356 plus nth number of corvettes. plus aviation.

          To counter the potential enemy’s AUGs in the Mediterranean, there is an Tu-22M3 aviation group equipped with cruise missiles ... Or rather, it should have been presented earlier in the Crimea with Tu-16 and Tu-22 ...

    In total, the Russian Navy has four units of the Cheetah type patrol (missile) ships, two of which are part of the Caspian Flotilla. This is a multi-purpose ship, which, with a full displacement of 1930 tons, has quite powerful weapons.
    in fact, there are only 2 pcs. and both in the Caspian. the rest were being built and are being built for Vietnam

      But he’s not alive yet. Most of the ships in the fleets are still Soviet-built. And the fleet is aging. And our bureaucrats are running around with the mock-ups of the Flurry (destroyer) and the Leader in the exhibitions, they talk a lot about the first Russian aircraft carrier, about the new 5th generation submarines, but so far it doesn’t go further than mock-ups. We need new shipyards and people capable of professionally and quickly building ships of any displacement and complexity. Financing and technical base. And we are only at the beginning of this journey. In essence, we rejoice in the advances of our Moscow Region, which speaks of building Ash-trees before 20 years, as many as 7 pieces, on the modernization by 18 of Nakhimov, on submarines with anaerobic installations on the early start of the construction of Leaders and Shkvalov ... but for now these are just mock-ups and words. Forgive me, to my delight, I added a fly in the ointment. But not to say of this, it means not understanding the problems and tasks that will have to be addressed.

        The first nuclear submarine of the 5th generation has already been laid this year. And that’s all for now. That is what appeared on the Internet. The parallel construction of several types of nuclear submarines began at once. Next year, as was said, another 1-2 nuclear submarines of the 5th generation will be laid down. They won’t be able to, since the capacities are still clogged by the 4th generation and it needs to be built.

    Small missile ships of the Buyan-M type are more consistent with the features of the Caspian MTVD.

    And how many s.racha was there at various resources and forums about the appropriateness of their construction. But they repeated the triumph (much greater now) of their time of Soviet missile boats (the sinking of the Egyptian EM Eilat in 183 by Egyptian RCAs). And if you add to this that they (“Buyans”), you can relocate along the inland waterways to any firing position where there is a body of water (Baltic, World Cup, inland lakes or reservoirs), or, for example, along Psaki, to Belorusskoe sea" laughing , then naturally our partners have stupor and congruent dissonance.

      Not only about the feasibility of construction, but also about their receipt primarily in the Caspian.
      Opponents of the “Buyans” in this theater of operations considered RTOs mainly in the anti-ship role - and concluded that such a number of “calibers” was redundant: "There is no one to shoot there ... they have more PUs than targets ... etc.".

      Well, actually frigates 11356 are also armed with Caliber. Within a year, 3 units must come to the Black Sea Fleet. 22350 as well, but in the near future only 1 is expected. And then do not forget about Varshavyanka, and there will be 6 of them in the near future (3 are already in service), they are also armed. "Caliber" is a universal complex!

        11356 3 TFR * 8 Caliber = 24 pcs.
        22350 2 frigate * 16 calibers (like for the Black Sea Fleet, however, the 2 frigate of this project is intended) = 32 pcs.
        21631 2 RTOs (at least) * 8 "calibres = 16 pcs.
        636.3 6DEPL * 4 "caliber" = 24 pcs.

        Total (minimum) 96 Caliber in different versions (KR, RCC) is expected at the Black Sea Fleet in 2016-2017.

        It is possible that “Moscow” in the future will be converted to “Caliber”

    It is known from reliable sources that in the future, a naval group from the Northern Fleet can be sent to this area according to the plan for the rotation of the ship’s composition.

    And it is also possible - the Pacific Fleet ship group. Somewhere infa slipped (I can’t find the link), but it was certain that the Navy ships were ready to launch artillery attacks on terrorists (to provide artillery support to the Syrian army). According to rumors, they are cooking at the BS from the Gulf of Aden (and there is also Middle East nearby) EM “Fast” Pacific Fleet. And this, along with the survivors, at the Admiral Ushakov SF EM and the Nastoychmvy BF EM, as well as Moscow and the Varyag, are the only ships capable of efficiently and designed to operate along their shore with 130 mm. main caliber.
    will wait.

      All of these are alive, they are provided by the Amur Shipyard.

    It is known from reliable sources that in the future, a naval group from the Northern Fleet can be sent to this area according to the plan for the rotation of the ship’s composition.

    And it is also possible - the Pacific Fleet ship group. Somewhere infa slipped (I can’t find the link), but it was certain that the Navy ships were ready to launch artillery attacks on terrorists (to provide artillery support to the Syrian army). According to rumors, they are cooking at the BS from the Gulf of Aden (and there is also Middle East nearby) EM “Fast” Pacific Fleet. And this, along with the survivors, at the Admiral Ushakov SF EM and the Nastoychmvy BF EM, as well as Moscow and the Varyag, are the only ships capable of efficiently and designed to operate along their shore with 130 mm. main caliber.
    will wait.

    On which bank of 130 mm caliber are you going to work, are you our dreamer? The main targets in the depths of the mainland are where 130-mm artillery will not reach, no matter how 152-mm, too.

    Here on the forum they wrote that Caliber is a direct relative of the Club, and at least launch it from any barge, just install a container on it))

    Caliber is Club. They are not relatives. This is she.

    We do not have these fleets now.

    In my opinion, there are 6 cells on the "buoys", and 8 cells on the "Dagestan". 3x6 + 8 = 26. The sum and gives 26 missiles in a salvo.

    8 cells each. Standard launcher 3S14. They just didn’t release the entire ammunition for some reason. Or they released the whole, but reached the goal of 26. Nobody will say that ...

    More such ships are needed. And new projects, such as missile platforms with a large number of UVP. That would be 32 missiles could be launched from one unit.

    God forbid at least fulfill those plans. what is. We will not talk about rocket platforms yet ...

    Well, plans seem to be fulfilling
    And if you take into account that this complex can be located in a regular container, the devil knows how many more of them are traveling around the country or at some wholesale base near the border of a potential partner wink

    Now I would have to launch a volley with submarines on the positions of Allahovbar, so to speak, in order to consolidate the excitement. To show my strength in a stronger way. But if you recall, Crimea took famously, the Ukrainians were knocked out, but then they did not fix the result. The result was a massacre in the east Ukraine. In my opinion. Here it is necessary to hammer that there is urine from all calibers. They only take power for courage. However, like the Americans.

    What for? What will give the launch of the four "Caliber"? The effect was in surprise, and not in the fact that the KR struck something inaccessible to other means of destruction. And so you have to drive the boat into the Mediterranean Sea, and for what? To shoot 4 "Caliber"?

    In the plans (so far), in addition to the construction of 4 already laid down, is the construction of another plus an option for two. That is a maximum of 3 ships. In the best situation, by 2019-2020 we will have 10 such ships. Plus other ships. But there everything is not moving as well as we would like. Of the 9 laid corvettes of Project 20380, only 4 are in service. Of the two corvettes of Project 2012 laid down in 2013-20385, not one (and we want to build 2020 by 10), out of 4 laid frigates, 22350 are in service so far. The fate of the construction is still not determined 2-4. The fleet, of course, is replenished, but at a very insignificant pace. Moreover, the maximum that such ships can have is up to 16 shock missiles. What is over does not go to any comparison with the similar weapons of our "sworn friends"

    And about the containers ... I think we ourselves didn’t even open the Pandora’s box. But this is a completely different conversation
