While reading Steven Zaloga's "The Kremlin's Nuclear Sword" I found another interesting ship which is absent from my books: Project 11570 (NATO: Sadko). The 11570 role was to reload the 941 Akula SSBN with R-39 SLBM at sea. My Google search yields neither info not drawings/pictures.

Can anybody post some info and/or picture?. Is that a unbuilt design or not?

Thanks in advance.

BTW while "googling" I found that monumental books which is well out of my economical possibilities but I think could be of interest to someone interested about the Russian Navy. Some unbuilt projects are included.

For counter Ticonderoga Class, Soviet also want a new class fighting ship which could be build in scores. Afterall, the Kirov class is too expensive. So here we see a new class that looks nuch similar with Ticonderoga.

Project 10210 Bizon Large ASW ship
Project 10230 Tur
Project 64 missile cruiser
Project-85 CV
MerKury CV
Delphyn 2K CV
Delphyn 3K CV

Soviet aircraft and helo carrier projects - lots of images including a large catamaran ASW helo carrier. Don' forget check out the photo gallery linked at the bottom of the entry:

Thanks, good find! Finally some photos in decent resolution of the Pr.1143.6, 1153 and 11780 models, among others.

Excellant site, still a storey to be told about soviet aircraft carrier development. I saw some work by gollevainen, on the early history - and he talked about a follow up article.

The model confirms that Project 10200 featured anchor and mooring gear on the forward portion of flight deck and absolutely no sign of a single elevator - very odd.

The present day Russian Navy could certainly have used some of these.

Project 1077 Squadron Radar Picket Ship (what would have been known in the West as a Area Air Defense cruiser). Like it's western counterpart, the Ticonderoga class cruiser, it would have doubled as a command ship, although it would have been built in far smaller numbers (initial requirement was for 4 units, one per fleet):



Initial design - 1970.



Updated 1077 design - 1977.



Carrier (arsenal ship) type variant - 1980.

Warship International has started the first of a 3-4 part history of Soviet post-WWII naval development including proposed but unbuilt ships. The first part ran in a recent issue and (I'm too lazy at the moment to look it up) covered the period up to around 1961. I think they're going in essentially 10-year segments. They are also going to do an article on the Kirov battlecruisers (one of my favorites). Unfortunately, they announced this last fall and they didn't immediately jump into the series. The journal is quarterly, so you can wait awhile to get the next issue.

The multi-part series is (I think--again, lazy) a translation of a Russian series. Unfortunately, unlike aviation, the history of Soviet naval planning and shipbuilding has been very slow to get translated for the West. There are tons of great books on Cold War era aircraft, but very little on the naval side available in the West.

Hi Akula

Northerndancer:

The fighter-type aircraft are pretty clearly Yak-41M/Yak-141. The prop job looks to be Yak-44 minus the radar dome (so either COD or ASW variants).

I've seen this model before. I think it is actually supposed to be one of the versions of Project 1165 "Fugas".

I will check and post confirmation or correction!

Regarding the situation in the early '90s, just before the Soviet Union disintegrated, this may be of some interest:

The big deletions are almost certainly high-resolution reconnaissance satellite photos.

There's a neat story behind CIA assessment of the WIG. Some of it has been told in public, but in different places.

Any details on that one would be interesting. The original antiship ballistic missile.

Interesting, don't think I've ever seen that before.

I'm curious though how you beach a hydrofoil? Probably only useful in high tides.

I believe it was supposed to use a long extendable reinforced ramp, a bit like some armoured bridgelayers.
