Trawled to St. Petersburg for testing completed for the Russian Navy at the Sokolskaya Shipyard JSC (Sokolskoe, Nizhny Novgorod Region) KSV-2168 communication boat of the modified project 1388NZ (factory number 403), 09/05/2018 (c) Gogs / forums.airbase .ru
This is the lead launch of a modified project 1388NZ (developed by JSC Vimpel, Nizhny Novgorod in a series of three units ordered by Sokol Shipyard JSC under a state contract with the Russian Ministry of Defense for the supply of three boats with serial numbers 403, 404 and 405, with deadlines, respectively, in the years 2017-2019.The boat KS-2168 (serial number 403) was launched on October 27, 2017, and on August 26, 2018, after the completion of the completion works, it was started by towing from Sokolsky to St. Petersburg. Delivery of the boat is now scheduled for the end of 2018. The construction of the two following boats due to serial numbers 404 and 405, according to known data, is in fact not carried out.
The communication boats of the project 1388N3 are being constructed in relation to the class KM (*) Ice2 [1] R2-RSN AUT1 Special purpose ship (special purpose) of the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS). The purpose of the boats is the delivery of members of the command and inspection staff to the ships that are in the roads or located in the areas where the exercises are held.
The main characteristics of the boat modified project 1388N3:
maximum length - 66.9 m;
Maximum width - 11.0 m;
Board height amidships - 5.0 m;
Draft amidships on KVL (estimated) - 3.0 m;
Autonomy - 10 days;
The cruising range is 1000 miles.
The communication boats of the project 1388H / H3 family are a modification of a series of torpedo boats developed by TsKB Vympel project 1388 (code “Baklan”) and boats of radiation and chemical reconnaissance project 1388R, built for the Navy of the USSR in the amount of 50 units in 1974-1990 at the Sosnovsky Shipbuilding Plant .
Construction of communications boats of the project 1388N was started at the Sokolsky shipyard after 2000.In 2006, the project was completed under the project 1388N (developed by JSC Vympel) and was commissioned by the Black Sea Fleet as a representative boat of the commander of the Novorossiysk naval base, the KSV-67 communications boat (serial number 482), originally laid out in Soviet times under the project 1388Р at Sosnovsky Shipbuilding Plant. Then, at the Sokolsky shipyard, under the contract with the Ministry of Defense of Russia, the construction of two communication boats of the project 1388N3, already of special construction (with extensive use of imported equipment), was started. The lead boat of communications KSV-872 of project 1388NZ (serial number 401) arrived at the Northern Fleet on duty on July 25, 2011. The second boat of this project KSV-2155 (serial number 402) arrived at the service station in Novorossiysk on December 17, 2013.
Three additional boats for communication of the modified project 1388N3 with serial numbers 403-405 noticeably differ from the first two boats of this project by their architectural appearance, tempered by Sokol Shipyard.
It is worth noting that in 2015 the Sokolsky Shipyard also received a state contract for the construction for the Russian Navy of two torpedo-boats of the project 1388Н3Т based on the project 1388Н3 (serial numbers 451 and 452) with delivery periods in 2018 and 2019, respectively.Construction of the head torpedo boat was started by the company in 2016, the second in 2017, but apparently, the delivery of the lead will be made no earlier than 2019.
From 2006 to 2015, the Sokolsky Shipyard delivered to the Ministry of Defense of Russia eight target ships of the project 436bis (factory numbers from 014 to 021) and in 2017 received a state contract for two more such target vessels (factory numbers 022 and 023).
