Une corvette russe Buyan-M (Projet 21631) effectue un tir d'essai de missile anti-navires Kalibr (SS-N-27)

Source Navy Recognition :

On June 7, 2014, TV channel "Russia-24" covered Russian Navy Caspian Flotilla maneuvers, including a firing test of a vertically launched 3M-54 Kalibr (Nato designation SS-N-27 Sizzler) anti-ship missile from the Buyan-M corvette (Project 21631) "Uglich".

The Russian defense ministry has ordered a total of nine Project 21631 (Buyan-M) corvettes for the navy, with at least six vessels to be assigned to the Caspian Flotilla. The first two Buyan-M corvettes, the Grad Sviyazhsk and the Uglich, entered service with the flotilla earlier this year, Chirkov said.
The Zelenodolsk shipyard, based in Russia’s Tatarstan Republic, began construction of the sixth corvette in the series, the Vyshny Volochek, in August last year.
A Buyan-M corvette has a displacement of 949 tons and a maximum speed of 25 knots. It is armed with Kalibr (SS-N-27) anti-ship missiles, 100-mm and 30-mm guns, as well as Igla-1M air defense missiles.

The 3M-54 is a surface and submarine-launched anti-ship missile developed by the Novator Design Bureau. The missile is a modular system with five different variants: two anti-shipping types, one for land attack, and two with an anti-submarine role. The Russian domestic variant (3M-54) and export variants (3M-54E/3M-54TE) fly at sub-sonic speeds while achieving supersonic speed as they near their target. They are also believed to be able to perform very high angled defensive maneuvers in contrast to the common linear flight path of other anti-ship cruise missiles.

The Russia Navy's Caspian Flotilla will conduct sea trials of its second Project 21631 Almaz shipbuilding Buyan-class corvette, Uglich, in late August, Russia's southern military district has announced.

Currently, the first ship of the class, Grad Sviyazhsk, is undergoing final state tests and is due to be delivered to the Russian Navy by the end of 2013, according to RIA Novosti.

The strategic command's press service said that the Russian Navy will receive a Grachonok-class patrol boat, several Serna-class landing craft, and three tugboats in the near future.

Procured as part of Russia's broader strategy to boost the Caspian Flotilla's capability, the new vessels will be deployed to protect offshore economic zones and combat enemy warships in littoral zones.

Designed to protect naval installations from sabotage and terrorist attacks in littoral zones, the Grachonok-class boats feature a relatively small displacement and high speed, and can also be used in border defence activities for the Russian coastguard.

The 25.8m-long and 61t Serna-class landing craft has been designed to carry one tank, two infantry fighting vehicles, armoured personnel carriers, or a 92-men landing troop.

Armed with Kalibr (SS-N-27) anti-ship missiles, 100mm and 30mm guns and Igla-1M air defence systems, the Buyan-class corvettes have a displacement capacity of 949t and a range of 1,500nm.

The Buyan-class vessels can cruise at a speed of maximum speed of 28kt using a twin screw combined diesel and diesel (CODAD) propulsion system, which comprises of two Zvezda M520 radial 56-cylinder diesel engines driving two pump-jet propulsors.

MOSCOW, March 21 (RIA Novosti) – Russia’s Caspian Flotilla will this year be boosted by two rapid attack missile craft and a number of other auxiliary vessels, the Southern Military District said on Thursday.

The new craft are part of a broader strategy to increase the size and capability of the Flotilla in what defense analysts see as a reaction to potential instability in Caspian Sea neighbour Iran.

“The Uglich and Grad Sviyazhsk missile corvettes, a Grachonok class high-speed special purpose boat, several Serna class landing craft, and three tugboats will 21631 join the Caspian Flotilla,” the strategic command’s press service said in a statement.

The Project corvettes have a displacement of 949 tons and maximum speed of 25 knots.

They are armed with Kalibr (SS-N-27) anti-ship missiles, 100-mm and 30-mm guns, as well as Igla-1M air defense systems.

Defense officials say the ships’ main purpose is to protect Russia’s offshore economic zones and engage enemy warships along littoral areas.

Having relatively small displacement and high speed, Grachonok class boats are designed for protection of naval installations in littoral zones against sabotage and terrorist attacks, as well as for assistance to Russian Coast Guard in border defense activities.

The Serna class landing craft is 25.8 meters long and displaces 61 tons. It can carry either one tank or two infantry fighting vehicles (or armored personnel carriers), or a 92-men landing party.

The Caspian flotilla already has several Serna class vessels, the Navy confirmed earlier, without giving a specific figure.

MOSCOW, January 13 (RIA Novosti) – A pair of new missile corvettes have completed acceptance trials and will enter service in Russia’s Caspian Flotilla in the first quarter of this year, the Southern Military District said Monday.

The two ships, the Grad Sviyazhsk and Uglich, are the first in the new Buyan-M class and are equipped with anti-ship and anti-aircraft missiles.

The vessels began sea trials in August and completed four test launches of the Kalibr-NK missile, which can engage surface, underwater and coastal targets.

The five countries bordering the Caspian Sea – Russia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Iran – all maintain a naval presence in the sea.

MOSCOW, June 17 (RIA Novosti) - A new attack missile craft will start sea trials with Russia’s Caspian Flotilla in early July, the Southern Military District said on Monday.

The Grad Sviyazhsk Project 21631 missile corvette is due to join the Flotilla after completing all trials and state tests before the end of the year, the district's press service said.

The corvette has a displacement of 949 tons and maximum speed of 25 knots. It is armed with Kalibr (SS-N-27) anti-ship missiles, 100-mm and 30-mm guns, as well as Igla-1M air defense missiles.

In addition to the Grad Sviyazhsk, the Caspian Flotilla will also take delivery of an Uglich missile corvette, a Grachonok-class high-speed patrol boat, several Serna class landing craft, and three tugboats in the near future, the strategic command’s press service said in March.

The Serna class landing craft can carry either one tank or two infantry fighting vehicles (or armored personnel carriers), or a 92-man landing party.

The Caspian flotilla already has several Serna class vessels, the Navy confirmed earlier, without giving a specific figure.
