  • Rate the plaform: Steregushy class frigate

    It looks like the Russian Navy is finally beginning to put new combatants in the water, and in Russian tradition the Steregushy class frigate is a comely man-o-war.



    The project was developed at Almaz Central Design Bureau for Marine Engineering (St. Petersburg). The project's corvette is designed for littoral zone warfare, countering opponent's surface ships and submarines, and also providing gunfire support of landing operations.

    Ship's displacement is 2,000 tons; length is 100 meters; beam is 13 meters; cruising range is 4,000 nm; crew (including helicopter maintenance group) is 100 men. Corvette may be armed with 100-mm multipurpose gun systems made by St. Petersburg machinery plant Arsenal; antiaircraft missile/gun system Kashtan; supersonic missiles capable to hit low-altitude targets at the range up to 10 km; and two AK-630 automatic gun mounts. Stealth technology is also applied.

      as far as corvettes go, there seems to be a lot of western design influence in it, looks like your atypical German or Dutch made ship from the angle of that photo....

          She is very nice looking and equipped as I can determine with some very reliable stuff and cps.

          The Russians may be working within limited budgets but their not second-rate. Certainly when they can get around it.

            Not much yet Darren, aside from that Russian link that I included; in typical fashions, and much more sensibly I might add, the Russain Navy is not being terribly specific. I do believe that she will carry the follow on to the SS-N-22 Sunburn, and sounds like a wicked bird, These are the specs on it:

            LENGTH - 30.5 FEET
            WEIGHT - 6,700 POUNDS AIR LAUNCH

              With so very little to go on; I rated her good. Looking good is not the same as being excellent or outstanding.

                I do find the AK-630/Kashtan CIWS combination interesting.

                  It is too soon to tell how good it is. It is armed better than our LCSs that is for sure, but don't get me started on that again!

                  Here is some more info:

                    I would need more data to reach a decision. Is a hundred men enough to do repairs of combat damage? Does the ship use automatic controls instead of crew? This Kashtan missile/gun system, is it one double barreled system or two systems? Is the 30mm guns systems 6 sets of 2 barrels or two sets of 6 barrels? I could not even find them. If you can't find them, then how are they able to hit air threats?

                          I hear you Darren. I went to the USSR back in 1989 while attached to CG-51. I recall quite well that the Russian boys did not appear to be as well trained as we were.

                              Looks like it has potential now if they can prove the world they still have the skill to create a great ship.
