The scale of damage after the fire on the "Provorny" corvette is assessed

In the evening of December 17, at the Severnaya Verf Shipyard JSC (part of the USC) in St. Petersburg, a large fire broke out on the Provorny corvette, which has been under construction since the summer of 2013. This is the second ship of project 20385, which was to be transferred to the Russian Navy by the end of 2022.

The emergency signal arrived at 18:22 Moscow time. Initially, it was reported that the ship's superstructure was on fire and that the area of ​​fire was about 400 square meters. m. Later there was information about the spread of fire over an area of ​​800 square meters. m., which makes up most of the ship.

This is almost the entire corvette "Agile"

- told the agency Interfax in the dispatch service.

During the extinguishing of the fire, 160 people and 40 units were involved. equipment... 3 people were injured, 2 of them were firemen. All persons were hospitalized with burns of varying severity.

At the same time, the TV channel "News" clarified that the fire, which was assigned the highest rank of complexity, was localized on an area of ​​about 1000 sq. m. to 22:49. The fire was completely extinguished by 09:18 am on December 18.

Then it became possible, at least approximately, to visually assess the extent of the damage after the incident. A short video has been posted documenting the severe damage. Most of the ship's superstructure, from the bow to the hangar, has been almost completely destroyed. The fire damaged the wheelhouse and the tower-mast structure, the debris fell deep into the hull. Even the launchers were burnt out.

The reasons for what happened are being investigated. The ICR opened a criminal case on violation of safety rules during the implementation of work.

After the incident, Russian and Western web users began to wonder about the feasibility of further using fiberglass and other combustible materials in the construction of warships, which are used to reduce weight, both in Russia and in the West. In the event of hostilities, such a ship will be effectively disabled by the simplest incendiary ammunition. At the same time, it is absolutely not important what kind of "super-duper" missiles this ship is armed with, since all its crew at this moment will be busy with the struggle for survival.

      And I think that on the contrary it is good! In the USSR, at one time they refused to use duralumin on ships precisely because of its flammability. And modern uhari began to use plastic ... This is a real hack. I would not like to serve on such a powder keg. on normal ships, explosives are in strictly limited and equipped with security facilities. And then the whole ship turns out to be a powder keg! And we urgently need to write off the first ship for scrap. Since there is zero sense from it. Potential floating brazier for the crew! At one time, I had to put out fires. Once on a warship, during service. The fire lasted 4 hours. We managed to localize it on time and put it out. The damage was repaired on our own. The second time after leaving for the reserve, already working on a floating base. The cabin was burning. We also managed to put out the fire on our own. And this was done due to the absence of plastics and aluminum in the structure of the ship and the vessel!

        What are you talking about? Today, "plastic" exists non-flammable and stronger than metal at the level of ceramics. In addition, on the ship, in addition to plastic and duralumin, there is something to burn.

    A very visual lesson with the epic death of the British destroyer Sheffield from an extensive fire and fire of light-alloy and composite materials of the superstructure (caused only by the burning remnants of fuel from the tank and the unexploded aviation anti-ship missile system Exocet, which pierced its side much higher than the waterline) in 1982, during The Argentine-British Falklands conflict, as it turned out, was never taken into account by the designers (it turns out that they were doomed in advance to the same fate at sea - "if something happens" ?!) of the corvette and those admirals in the leadership of the Russian Navy who accepted their project to production ?! request Why??? what

        This unfortunate corvette has been under construction for ten years, and the project was made even earlier, before the "Euromaidan" and "Krymnash" over peaceful Crimeans near Korsun, the Maidan bandero extremists will still answer, such crimes have no statute of limitations! am )!
        If people from Ukraine have moved to Russia, then their home is now in Russia!
        "For sho" they "take revenge" heated their Russia (and, unlike Ukraine, regularly, without many months of delays, paying them their salaries) ?!
        These people, if they take revenge, then Banderland, to whom they probably have their own "accounts"!
        But in Russia itself (as well as in Belarus too), among Russian citizens, there were (and still are ?!) many of those who were delighted with the Kiev "Euromaidan" and there were Russian Maydauns who took an active part in the Bander-Nazi coup in Ukraine and are still taking part in the punitive operation in Donbass (IN Donbass, P.Kot, Ferstein, why am I explaining this to you? wink , so in the USSR they said and still say and write, but in Kryvbas, in Kuzbass!)!
        Recently, the FSB covered, in many cities of the Russian Federation, another pro-Nazi extremist network from the Russian youth recruited by the SBU, for the umpteenth time, because in Russia there are enough anti-Russian, anti-popular fascists, as well as "fight" and "navalnat" (you yourself, P.Kot, not one of them, but the "trick" all very much looks like that ?!)!
        Immediately, with this burnt out corvette, I am inclined to the version of "frying the traces" of many years of embezzlement (before the annual accounting "reconciliation" revision?), But this is just my personal opinion, unsubstantiated and possibly erroneous ?!
        Most likely, it will “turn out” that “the uncouched cigarette butt that fell on a carelessly left oiled rag” is to blame or, at the end of the shift, at the end of the shift, through his own negligence, he did not notice a smoldering fire in his workplace ?!
        No, well, some thread of a small "switchman" will surely be "brought to justice" and again will be "on a stake-bastard (on a slipway-corvette), start over" ?! winked

          finish your "ukrainu" and then talk about Russian corvettes. The FSB has already caught over a hundred lucky owners of brand new Russian passports among Ukrainians in Russia for preparing terrorist attacks. the Ukrainian will always take revenge on Russia. With Sagaidachny, with Khmelnytsky, with Mazepa ... and there will be Banderlyands when Ukrainians caught by the eggs, out of habit, begin to divide into good and bad and denounce each other.
          At the plant where I work, the Ukrainians who came in large numbers at first were silent, but how the authorities in Russia fledged they began to scold louder than anyone else and the feeble-minded sang along with them. Why are you rushing to Russia? they have built a paradise for themselves, are you helping us now?

                And I do NOT want the Banderopithecus to have weapons (neither new nor old)!
                Otherwise, I would not vegetate in poverty without money, but I would have "made money" in the engineering and technical staff at one of the military factories of Banderland, or I would have contracted as an instructor in weapons, but even as a military translator at the headquarters or at a military training ground (even Yavorovsky, even Shirlan, there at them with the "interpreters" are now tense-ukrovoyaks do not "understand" their imported masters well, and civilian translators do not "fumble" in military terminology ... smile ), and, besides, the usual one, in a working position as a machine operator, or as a locksmith, in the defense industry, now there is a shortage of qualified workers and they pay regularly, without skimping, the entire "social package" and accommodation for nonresidents for free ...
                I DO NOT want "w / Banderas" to help in this bloody anti-national "trade" - I honestly admit,
                To me "a bastard" even "war tax", which, against my wishes, is regularly deducted from my salary into the pocket of a banderohunta (this is when "employed"), and not that I "build ships" for my killers with my own hands and arm them ! negative

                And yet, P. Cat, remember-
                The small-town Natsiks, who in 1991 seized the former Ukrainian SSR, never "built the country", but destroyed and raided everything (although they slyly called this anti-popular action "rogue nezalezhnisti") - that's why the Ukrainian inhabitants are dying out and scatter, who where!

    Here I am, Cat, of the same opinion, but the fact that our special services have caught somewhere about a hundred "sleeping" cells of Bandera is a drop in the ocean, for their "Ridna Nenka" they will do us a lot of mischief and bring trouble. They all need to be overcoated and passed through a SMERSH fine sieve, then there will be a lot of sense.

    Strange, since the beginning of the 90s, one Alenevod has been sitting in the government, who created the Emergencies Ministry and, accordingly, headed it for many years. Then he became governor for a while, and then he was transferred "to the defense."
    That is, it should be 100 (one hundred) in 1 (one) - firefighter, rescuer, Minister of Emergency Situations + Minister of Defense and much more ... there it was possible to extinguish fires in Turkey, send and drown that corvette to all ebeny tons of water from heaven.
    This did not happen. You see, the fire brigades could not drive to the place of the fire due to snow drifts ... winter, snow, piled up ... firefighters cannot pass, ...

      Yes, and such a nuance.
      This unfortunate "Agile", as they say, is under construction + - 10 years. This is where the agility is simply extraordinary lol
      More recently, the American Connecticut nuclear submarine ran into an underwater mountain and broke its nose. And according to the latest data, the repair of the boat has already begun, although a month and a half has passed since the accident; the boat has even already been dragged on the surface to the American "hometown" for further repairs.
      And a corvette. Agile type.
      Guys, with such efficiency, business acumen, pace and so on ... you want to "catch up and overtake" AmeriGa? You make me laugh laughing
      And they like to pickle here, how the dollar will collapse soon, and what inflation is in AmeriGa winked Have you tried to work like in AmeriGe?
      On December 23, the president and the supreme commander-in-chief will give a regular press conference, recorded back in September and with selected journalists, perhaps they will say something about the nimble construction of "Provorny" and how it burned down.
