Russia Developing Modernized Frigates Capable Of Carrying Up To 48 Cruise/Hypersonic Misiles Each

Russia has started developing modernized Project 22350M [M – modernized] frigates, which would be capable of carrying up to 48 cruise missiles each, the state-run news agency TASS reported on March 19 citing a source in the military-industrial complex.

Preliminary design of the project is complete and was accomplished by the Severnoye Design Bureau. Research and development work and planning for the construction phase are ongoing.

The Project 22350M frigate will have a displacement of 7,000t and will reportedly be capable of carrying both Kalibr cruise missiles and Zorcon hypersonic missiles. The modernized frigate will also get a unified fire control system, which would boost its air defense and artillery capabilities.

    good the more every one, is trying to prepare for global war, the more scared they become of starting a global war.

    • سيف الاملح

      As said in the prophecy, the kuffar will destroy each other in huge conflict.

      • cristi cristikosk

        really? in which prophecy?

  • Jesus

    Upgraded Gorshkov aka super Gorshkov, beefed up from 4-5000 tons to 7-8000 tons.

    • Daniel Miller

      That is no longer a frigate that is a destroyer.

      • Jesus

        Russian idea of a destroyer is something more robust, with significant larger armament capacity. Proposed Lidder destroyers will weigh in at between 16-18,000 tons. A specializes ASW destroyer could weigh about 10,000 tons.

        • John Whitehot

          it’s not only a Russian idea, it’s how ships are designated nowadays around the world.

          • Jesus

            Who builds 16-18000 ton destroyers today besides the Zumwalt atrocity?

          • John Whitehot

            ships are not defined according to their weight, but to their functions.

            As for calling them “Cruisers”, “Destroyers” or “Frigates”, I prefer the Soviet practice in which the designation was an acronym containing the initials of the ship features (Example – “Large Anti-Submarine Ship” for the Udaloy class).

            The terms “destroyers” or “cruisers” come from another era and are not able to describe ships anymore.

          • Jesus

            The designation of the term is relative to the capabilities of the ship.
            Kirov battle cruiser surpasses Ticonderoga cruisers and present day Russian frigates and corvettes greatly surpass US combat littoral ships….etc.

          • John Whitehot

            the capabilities of a ship aren’t an arbitrary value owed to how they are called.

            They depend on the equipment they’ve been fitted with, which in turn depends on the mission they were designed for.

            “surpass this” and “surpass that” is the amateurish propagandistic way the pentagon wants people to read about ships and the way the USN lobbies for more money from representatives.

          • Jesus

            Capabilities are dependent on the equipment and armaments they have been fitted with.
            Generally speaking every ship has some basic overall capability, antiair, anti sub and antiship, some more than others based on their designated purpose.
            Larger tonnage ships generate more power and have far greater radar capacity and selection of armaments, current Chinese newly built destroyers carry have a capacity of 300 VLS, while the Lidder destroyer will surpass that easily.

            I really do not care what the Pentagon says, the US MIC has lost common sense the knowledge to built effective weapons.

        • Daniel Miller

          then why is the Slava classed as a cruiser?

          • Jesus

            We are talking about today’s needs and the needs of 30-40 years ago. The development of technology leading to present day armaments would make a Lidder destroyer far more muscular than the Slava class cruisers.

          • Daniel Miller

            Not really it wont since the Slava’s can house far larger missiles. Also the “destroyer” will be renamed to cruiser since the displasment makes it a cruiser not a destroyer.

  • occupybacon

    Anyone knows the approximation of price of such missile?

    • John Whitehot

      several orders of magnitudes less than the aircraft carriers it’s made to sink.

      • occupybacon

        You mean less than a nuclear war?

        • John Whitehot

          i mean several orders of magnitudes less than the aircraft carriers it’s made to sink.

          • occupybacon

            Ahh sorry I forgot I talk with people that play strategy games

          • John Whitehot

            if i were you i’d get checked for autism.

            nobody understood wtf you talked about since the first reply.

          • occupybacon

            “the aircraft carriers it’s made to sink” – what is this?

  • Jens Holm

    So why dont they just buy some old ferries, and make missiles drive ins ?

    As if the missiles cant fly – isnt it.

  • verner

    good and just aim a few on washington dc and a few on tel aviv and there is an overwhelming certainty that a few corrupt and criminally insane politicians, like fatso, bedbugcrazy bolton, abrams,mnuchin and netanyahu and and and will be caught in the resulting conflagration.

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    Heavy Battlefrigate.

  • cechas vodobenikov

    Deploy 2 near NYC and Florida, another 2 near LA and Seattle–cheap deterrence to amerikan imperialism

  • ZUKI

    Every Russian missile must carry nulear warhead. There is no time to play hide and seek. Russian enemies want to destroy Russia for their capitalist ends. Russian enemies are capitalist terrorists. They want to stop every economic progress Russia is making through hard work. How do you then engage with such filth? They promote terrorism all over the world and are prepared to arm terrorist to archieve their terroristic horrible goals.
