      And there was laid the laying of such a handsome man for the Pacific Fleet, they laid it at the Eastern Shipyard: Small marine tanker (MMT) of project 03182 was developed as a multi-purpose platform of a reinforced ice class vessel for transporting liquid and dry cargo with the possibility of receiving helicopter equipment (including unmanned aerial vehicles) devices) and rescue operations. The tanker has a displacement of 3500 tons, a length of about 80 meters, a range of autonomous navigation of up to 1500 miles, autonomy of 30 days, seaworthiness of up to 9 points inclusive. The crew is 24 people.

      They will not be at sea. Recall a bit of history. Etc. 941 was supposed to load rockets in the port of Severodvinsk and in the place of permanent basing in Zapadnaya Litsa in Nerpichy Bay. A specially constructed railway led to the bay and a crane was mounted. So, by rail because of sharp turns, missiles could not be delivered. Nor did the Alexander Bastrykin missile-transport vessel specially built at the Admiralty Plant help. Boats at 11570 Ave. did not go to the Pacific Fleet. And loading and unloading of missiles was carried out only in Severodvinsk. This is a very difficult operation. The crane is special for this. Crane operator - captain of 941 rank.
      As we know now, pr. 955 will be based on the Pacific Fleet. There is an infrastructure. But you can’t deliver missiles either by rail. Therefore, there was a need for transport ships, or rather, in armament transport, according to 20180TV pr. Based on the design of the tugboat 20180

      It pleases me too, one I can’t understand, why do we need to know it completely by strangers, what and what is transported, etc. Sometimes it seems to me that valuable information is simply merging that is completely not intended for mass consumption. In the past, they wrote about the newly built factories about the army, they wrote in passing, but it was definitely a shield, now everyone is not too lazy about something and in the public domain, what kind of crap. Or am I the old stump behind universal "publicity".

        Normal crap. In the old days, we knew more about the enemy’s army than about ours. And inevitably compared them recent achievements with our cars previous generations (and even the pre-previous ones) - simply because censorship did not pass newer ones to the press.
        We have already flown the Su-27 - and in open sources all the MiG-21 showed off. After all, it got to insanity - they secreted “Jane” for information about our ships and released their “truncated Jane” with the latest achievements of NATO, but without the ATS fleet.

        As a result, against the background of the West, our army in open press and on TV looked ... pale. We lost in propaganda.

        And do not worry about secrecy. Remember the epic with the T-50 - the appearance was disclosed only during the first flight. Despite the fact that thousands of people saw the car in design bureaus and factories. Or the same epic with “Armata”, the photo of which had not been leaked to the network before official publication. Or Losharika.

      That a good thing is for sure, but the rest is a bit wrong.
      If there is a threat of a nuclear strike on the bases, the boats are dispersed over maneuverable bases. They may be in varying degrees of readiness, some may have to replenish the knowledge base. As well as boats that returned after completing the task.
      The loading of ICBMs into the sea is impossible in principle, since the excitement cannot be stopped, even without wind on the sea there is a dead swell. And when loading you need high accuracy. No wonder the missile-loading cranes for missile defense have a millimeter stroke of the hook. Even standing at the pier, loading is an extremely difficult and tedious event. And if it is military missiles equipped with warheads, it’s even hard to imagine tolerances ...

      From warehouses to basing points. It’s possible to load missiles into the mines before the completion of the gallows arrangement at the base points ..


      For the memorable pr. 941 there was the ship "Alexander Brykin" - it was just used to deliver and load missiles into the mines, since there was only one KSPR for Makeevsky monsters throughout the country, and that one was in Severodvinsk. KSPR in the basing point to launch and failed.

      Do you think that the "Bulava" is going directly to naval bases ???
      Or is it stacked in heaps on piers ???

      Yes, even for reloading weapons from a ship that delivered the Bulava to the raid, to this boat, and from it to the nuclear submarine or to the storage facility ...

      Yes, even to replace the “Clubs" on the submarine for any reason ...

      Or do you think that in such a time of no money again, they are wasting money for nothing ???

      A combat fleet is not only destroyer destroyers and nuclear submarines ... Its combat readiness is completely dependent on coastal infrastructure and a considerable auxiliary fleet ...

      So we handed over the ship - and we rejoice ... Another unit went into operation ...

        And yet, George, why is it impossible to load from the pier? It seems even “Granites” were loaded from it, or am I mistaken?

          granites are usually loaded with a floating crane, and at 941 ave. the rocket is very large, the loading complex was not brought to mind in Z. Litsa, and it’s a little expensive to constantly drive to Dvinsk.

      Common goals are to transport SLBMs from fleet depots to basing points and unload them at a berth at a berth for further transportation to a PB warehouse. SLBM can be delivered to Kamchatka only by sea. And in the North, the sea route is more reliable.

      Perhaps - loading SLBMs into RPKSN mines (if there is no suitable crane in the database).

        When the boat was in Z. Litsa or Okolnaya, Gadzhievo had to enter the reactor, go to Severomorsk at berth 19, drive the PC there and make love until the battle was fully loaded or unloaded and the shooting was loaded. Now, the arsenal and the PC (in one glass!) Will come on a diesel run (you don’t need to burn a / z), they will moor to Bori’s board and begin work. The crew of the boat does not need to engage in the mooring of submarines, take tugboats, close the fleet OD to close the raid, Kola Bay, etc.
        And secondly, 6,3 thousand tons is easier to carry out than 15 thousand tons, and the submariners of the “house” will be more intact.

      Excuse me, are you pouring fuel into your car directly from the reflux column or is it still at the gas station?
      Not all navies have railway access. But for transportation from railway to naval base it is needed. Is it clear now? hi

    Well, they know how to make beautiful ships in Russia! Even auxiliary.
    Such a ship is needed a priori, since having accepted the cargo on board it can deliver the Mace of the nuclear submarine anywhere in the sea-ocean. A small ship in a large sea is much more difficult to find than a static naval base, which in which case definitely falls under attack.
    Ship supply - and that says it all. Neither add nor take away.

    The loading of submarines by ammunition takes place at specially equipped piers, and this ship is needed to deliver missiles to these piers, since ammunition cannot be delivered in other ways in the conditions of the naval bases of the Northern and Pacific fleets. So learn the material part and do not fantasize.

      That is, “Academician Kovalev” is an analogue of “Alexander Brykin”, but for pr. 955.

      In order for us not to fantasize, we need to either publish articles without errors and inaccuracies, or so that specialists immediately correct everything with their first comments. I don’t understand - what’s wrong with you? Who needs to be mined, you - a well-deserved plus. no

    In the 80s in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky-50, now Vilyuchinsk, in Tarja, for transporting and storing missiles, there were Daugava and Vetluga weapon transports.

    where and where are they going to carry the "Mace" on this ship?

    To such questions, one of my acquaintances colonel (with epaulettes not from VO laughing) usually answered: "And who instructed you to find out all this?"

    It is also necessary to make the submarine two-body lift.

      "Commune 2". smile

      Only, I’m afraid that if such a vessel can still be made for diesel engines, then for a nuclear submarine this is unrealistic. Just estimate the weight of the submarine lying on the ground and not able to emerge on its own. Here the only way out is to save the crew first, and then use something like Giant-4, like with Kursk.

    Nice ship.
    In general, we would have to raise money for the construction
    supply transports
    for our fleet and the Arctic grouping.
    And then the experience of the Syrian express shows
    that BDK not everything can be resolved.

      This is not a cargo ship, but a special vessel. In addition to transportation, you still need to load-unload the products, monitor the storage mode, protect, fight for the survivability of the products and the vessel as a whole in the event of an accident. And also carry out maintenance of the ship’s materiel.
