Russian Navy to receive six advanced patrol ships by 2019

The Russian Navy is set to receive six new Project 22160 advanced patrol ships by 2019.

“The Russian state program envisions the construction of six Vasily Bykov-type ships that will be included in each of the four fleets before 2019”,Russian news agency Sputnik quoted Ilya Brilliantov, the head of Kronstadt Technologies.

According to Brillantov, Kronstadt Technologies is responsible for the delivery of a modular integrated bridge system which will allow the ships to be re-equipped for different tasks at short notice.

In October 2015, IHS Jane’s reported that the patrol ships would be armed with Kalibr-NK missiles which were deployed by Russia against Syrian rebel targets in October 2015.

Construction of the first Project 22160 ship started on February 26, 2014 at the Zelenodolsk shipyard. The 94-meter ships will have a displacement of 4,550 tonnes and be capable of reaching speed of about 30 knots, according to Severnoye Design Bureau, responsible for the ship’s design.

The ships will have a telescopic hangar and helo deck with facilities for take-off, landing and maintenance of the Ка-27 PS type 12-ton rescue helicopter. Source

Kamov Ka-29 Naval assault transport helicopter


The Ka-29TB (Transportno Boyevoy) is a dedicated assault transport derivative of the Ka-27 family, intended especially for the support of naval amphibious operations and featuring a substantially changed airframe. Its development commenced in 1973. The prototype made its first flight in 1976. Trials were completed in 1979 and production began in 1984. The type entered service in 1985. The first example was seen by Western observers on the assault shipIvan Rogov in 1987 in Mediterranean sea. The Ka-29TB was initially assumed to be the Ka-27B, resulting in the allocation of the Western reporting name Helix-B. Many of the new variants went unnoticed, and the Ka-29TB was initially thought to be a minimum-change version of the basic Ka-27PL anti-submarine warfare helicopter, but without radar. In fact it was an entirely new machine. About 59 of these helicopters were produced. These are in service with Russian Navy (up to 47) and Ukrainian Navy (up to 12).

The Ka-29TB features an entirely new, much widened forward fuselage, with a flight deck seating three members of the crew side-by-side, one of these crew members acting as a gunner to aim the various types of weapons carried on the four hardpoints of the helicopter’s pair of strut-braced lateral pylons, and the trainable 7.62-mm machine-gun hidden behind and articulated door on the starboard side of the nose. In addition, the two-piece curved windscreen of the Ka-27 has given way to a five-piece unit.

The Ka-29 accommodates 16 fully-equipped troops. Alternatively in the medical evacuation role it can carry 4 stretchers, 7 seated casualties and medical attendants. Also it can carry external loads on a sling with a maximum weight of 4 000 kg.

This helicopter can be armed with 9M114 Shturm-V (Western reporting name AT-6 Spiral) anti tank guided missiles (four missiles per hardpoint), pods with unguided 57-mm or 80-mm rockets, bombs, submunition dispensers and even torpedoes. It can also carry pods with 23-mm cannon and 250 rounds of ammunition each. There is provision for a 30-mm cannon, mounted above port outriger with 250 round ammunition feed from the cabin. These weapons are used to support seaborne assault troops and to soften up enemy defenses.

The Ka-29 is also armored. It has 350 kg of armor around cockpit and engines.

Kolomensky plant sent the customer a diesel-reverse-gear unit for the main power plant of the new patrol ship

As part of the import substitution program, Kolomensky Zavod OJSC manufactured and manufactured a diesel-reverse gear unit DRRA6000 for OAO Zelenodolsky Plant named after AM Gorky to be installed on a new 22160 patrol ship Dmitry Rogachev.

The diesel-reverse gear unit DRRA6000 is designed to work on a propeller of a fixed pitch. The main ship power plant of the project includes two units – ДРРА6000 and ДРРА6000-01 (each with a capacity of 6000 hp), which are located on the left and right sides of the ship. Each unit consists of a 16D49 diesel engine built by the Kolomna plant, a reverse gear drive produced by PJSC Zvezda and a local control system from JSC Concern NPO Avrora.
