NI: The Russian fleet is preparing serious firepower in the Baltic


The Russian fleet brings serious firepower to the Baltic, the American conservative magazine The National Interest reports.


The head of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, announced that the Baltic Fleet will be strengthened by six new warships, which will be armed with Caliber cruise missiles. In his message sent to the sailors on the occasion of the Baltic Fleet Day (317th anniversary), Evmenov recalled that the Baltic Fleet, created under Tsar Peter the Great more than 300 years ago, won brilliant victories over its enemies and made an “invaluable contribution” to the common cause of the Russian people .

Evmenov specified that the BF will include six Karakurt class corvettes of project 22800, four of which will be equipped with the marine version of the Pantsir-M air defense missile system.

Currently, the Pantsir-M air defense missile system is being tested on the Odintsovo corvette and can hit combat helicopters, airplanes, cruise and anti-ship missiles. Thanks to this complex, a ship can hit targets within a radius of 20 km. Corvette Odintsovo was put into operation in May 2018. This is the first ship of the Russian Navy equipped with the Pantsir-M air defense missile system.

All project 22800 corvettes are equipped with Caliber cruise missiles, as well as modern control systems, radio communications, navigation, electronic warfare, counterintelligence weapons and MANPADS. These ships can act as part of a group or independently.

This is Moscow’s latest attempt to replace its aging warships with new ones, smaller, but faster and more powerful, to protect Russia's interests in the region, according to the publication.

    Karakurt is an RTO, not a corvette, and you should not confuse sweets with salted ones. RTOs are not a universal ship capable of qualitatively replacing only missile boats, or RTOs of the Soviet-style Gadfly. These boats cannot be the basis of the fleet, they are not universal and the very first enemy submarine will become fatal for them if they are not accompanied by universal, heavier ships. Air defense missile systems also leaves much to be desired, on the first ships of the series there are only 30 mm guns that cannot provide effective air defense of the ship from the word EVERYTHING ... Very contradictory messages also come about the results of using the anti-aircraft missile system Shell, but be that as it may, its capabilities much more modest than that of the Redoubt, or Fort ...

      ... Karakurt is an RTO, not a corvette ..

      Small missile ships of project 22800 Karakurt are a series of Russian multi-purpose small missile and artillery ships of small displacement with guided missile weapons of the near sea zone of the Russian Navy, according to another classification these are small corvettes.

      The Baltic Sea is a shallow, shallow sea. The submarines will have to be tight there.

        Nevertheless, submarines in the Baltic always always fought successfully, and it is possible to fight against non-anti-submarine weapons of Karakurt even on submarines of the First World War .... So Karakurt, this is an RTO - a large missile boat ... and not moreover ... They like every boat for a battleship to be given out, powdering the brains of the people ... MANPADS ship from an air raid, or missile strike will not protect ...

          MRK - a large missile boat

          MRK is a Small Missile Boat, but Karakurt 22800 is a small corvette. This is a multi-purpose ship.

          They like to give each boat for a battleship

          - Do not talk nonsense if you do not know.
          Karakurt is not according to "ours", but according to NATO classification - a corvette.

          Die Projekt 22800, auch als Karakurt-Klasse bezeichnet, ist eine moderne Korvettenklasse mit Tarnkappentechnik der russischen Marine.

          Project 22800, also designation - Karakurt, a modern class corvette of the Russian Navy with Stealth technologies.

            RTOs - Small Rocket Ship, not a boat, although it differs from a conventional missile boat only in better seaworthiness and greater autonomy ... A multi-purpose ship is a ship capable of fighting air, surface and underwater targets. Karakurt does not have anti-submarine weapons, it has its air defense in its infancy and is not a multi-purpose ship .... Because uneducated, lying propagandists call boats boats, they do not become ships. LETTER TO READ it was necessary, but not to smoke!

              ... Strategic Boreas will receive anti-submarine assistants. On the basis of a small missile ship (RTO), Karakurt will create a hunter for submarines. About this "Izvestia" told sources in the high command of the Navy. RTOs reliably protect the Russian coast from enemy submarines ..

                You heard the ringing, but didn’t understand where it is ... The conversation is about creating a project for new IPCs - Small Anti-Submarine Ships based on MRKs - Small Missile Ships of the Karakurt type, and not that the Karakurt RTOs have anti-submarine weapons ... MPCs are universal they are not ships either, since anti-ship missiles are not in service ... Write better about sofas, maybe you understand them better ...

                  - I have not yet been rude to you, mind you. But I can.
                  I agree with you: on the basis of RTOs of project 22800 “A hunter wants to create a Karakurt.” RTOs and a hunter will be two modifications from the Karakurt project 22800 - missile and anti-submarine.

                  It is also important that the Karakurt crews of both modifications - missile and anti-submarine - can be trained according to one program, of course, with the exception of specialists in cruise missiles and anti-submarines. This will allow the fleet to save time and money.
                  The case of Karakurt as a basis for the future hunter is a good option. They are hardly noticeable for radar, as they are made using stealth technologies. Modern complexes of combat control, target designation and communications have been developed for them. Alteration is unlikely to be long. Most likely, instead of the Caliber cruise missiles, hydroacoustic equipment and anti-submarine weapons will be installed - jet bombers for deep-munition and Pack-NK systems designed to combat enemy submarines and torpedoes.

                  On my own, I will advise you to be more restrained and not to attack people whom you do not know at all. In order not to blush later.

                    Weapons on anti-submarines can be left the same - a universal launcher for 8 missiles, only the calibers will be in the form of rocket launchers, this option is already used on frigates of the 11356, 22350 and 20385 corvettes types, however, neither the IPC nor the RTOs are universal ... The smallest versatile displacement ship in the Russian fleet, this is a type 20380 corvette ...

                  Here is another version of the project 22800.

                  A model of the prospective multi-purpose corvette proposed by JSC CMKB Almaz based on the design of a small missile ship of project 22800 (code "Karakurt"). Judging by the presented model, the corvette, increased in comparison with the MRK of project 22800, is equipped with a combined diesel-gas-turbine main power plant. The armament includes, as far as you can see, two eight-charge universal vertical launch launchers of the UKKS, an anti-aircraft missile system with 9M100 series anti-aircraft guided missiles in vertical launchers on the aft superstructure, two four-charge launchers of the Package-NK anti-torpedo protection complex, one 76-mm artillery mount and two modified 30-mm anti-aircraft artillery systems. Gus, apparently, is a sap.
