Russia is preparing for sale the most armed patrol in the world


On the eve it became known that Algeria is purchasing three Russian corvettes of project 20380 "Guarding". According to most experts, in this way the country will significantly increase the power of its fleet.


The thing is that our fourth-generation warship is significantly superior to NATO competitors and is capable of sinking even destroyers with a displacement of up to 5 thousand tons. For example, if you compare it with the German project K130 of the "Braunschweig" type, then the Russian corvette is superior to its counterpart in all parameters, without exception.

In the west, "Guardian" has already been nicknamed the most armed patrol in the world. And indeed it is. Our project 20380 ship received a 100-mm gun, 8 Uran-M anti-ship missiles, 32 short-range missiles, two AK-630M anti-aircraft guns, two Packet-NK four-tube torpedo tubes and a Ka-27 anti-submarine attack helicopter. This is the model that Algeria will receive.

For itself, Russia will create a "modified" version. In particular, "Uranus" in this modification will be replaced with "Caliber" and "Zircon", and will also install 12 cells of the "Redut" air defense system. It is planned to build 13 such ships.

But that's not all. Work has already begun on the next version, numbered 20386. The new corvette will get even more "advanced" electronics and shock drones.

    It would be nice to first saturate your fleet, and then sell the surplus. IMHO.

      We saturate little by little ... Selling abroad is the proceeds that can be used to re-equip your own fleet.

      Ships of projects 20380/20385 are a series of multipurpose corvettes (patrol ships) of the near sea zone. Developed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau (St. Petersburg) in the late 1990s - 2000s. Designed to perform escort and strike missions in the near sea zone, patrolling coastal waters, patrol service.

      To date, there are five corvettes of Project 20380 in service, five more corvettes are in various stages of construction, while Loud will obviously be ready in 2018, the rest are expected in 2019-2021. within the framework of the state program for the development of armaments for 2011-2020, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in 2011 signed a contract with OJSC Severnaya Verf Shipyard for the construction of nine ships of the modernized project 20385 (this is the same project 20380 only reinforced in armament, plus a German power plant) ... However, in May 2015, representatives of the plant reported that the 20385 project was being phased out due to problems with imported components. According to it, only two ships will be built ("Thundering" and "Provorny") with the replacement of foreign components for domestic ones, the rest of the ships will be built according to the modernized project 20380.

      So, the next victim of the sanctions war fell the corvettes of the project 20385. And most likely, the leadership of the Navy simply came to the conclusion that the project was not entirely successful and closed it under a plausible pretext, citing the lack of German power plants (experts believe that this project is simply overloaded with weapons, which increased its cost, making it equal in value to the frigate of project 11356, with the worst seaworthiness and other qualities). German diesel MTU Friedrichshafen was replaced with diesel units 1DDA-12000 manufactured by JSC Kolomensky Zavod (installed on the first four corvettes of project 20380 built at Severnaya Verf). Each corvette will be equipped with two such diesel units, which include two main marine engines 16D49 with a capacity of 6000 hp. production of the Kolomna plant and reverse gear transmission RRD 12000, production of PJSC Zvezda, St. Petersburg.

      If everything goes well with the gearboxes, the "Thundering" and "Agile" should replenish the fleet in 2018-2019. On this, the construction of corvettes of the 20380/20385 family is likely to be completed. Thus, the composition of the Navy will be replenished not by 18, as originally planned by the GPV 2011-2020, but only 12 corvettes of the 20380/20385 project.

      Algeria has fused what we ourselves did not need. And thank God!

        What problems? 4 diesels from the Kolomna plant? Parts above the roof. Mechanics can repair in the ocean.

          I'm talking about marine engines, not diesel diesel engines.
          See the difference?

      There are four corvettes 20380 and all in the Baltic. Three of them are superfluous. Construction of 20385 and 20386 is underway. Two will be handed over to the Navy this year. Among other things, they are armed with Calibers, Onyxes and Zircons and are intended for the Pacific Ocean.

      Not bad, but in-line production makes it cheaper, thus the cost of subsequent ships that will go to our fleet, albeit slightly, will decrease. So also Algeria is being drawn into the zone of our influence, because the ship must be serviced, the crew trained, replenished with ammunition, etc.

    20386 we do not need some modular, where and when these modules will be done is unknown. Must do 20385

      They have been tested for a long time in the northern fleet.

    I have not heard from experts a single positive comment about 20386. It is very expensive both in construction and in maintenance, oversaturated with innovations that have not yet been tested in practice, and besides, it is armed only with Uranus. "Calibers", etc. do not become there. Strongly looks like another drank of funds from the USC. If it is brought to mind and to an acceptable cost, I will be glad to acknowledge my own wrong.

    significantly outperforms NATO competitors

    who said that? negative D / Garden! The manufacturer gives the "left" information to the media and everything wow-wow-wow?
    Car manufacturers also write that a car consumes 10 liters, but in fact 13-15.
