Robots to aircraft carriers

Navy Commander described the view of the Russian navy coming
Russian Navy base in a couple of years should make aircraft carriers and destroyers of the last generation. Fighting ability of the fleet should be expanded through the introduction of robotics, artificial intelligence systems, and non-lethal weapons. About promising directions of development of the fleet Navy Commander Admiral told Teals.

Navy Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov told about configurations that are expected in recently in the Russian Navy.

According to him, by 2020, the Navy must be created grouping of strategic non-nuclear deterrence forces.

Its base should make nuclear submarine project 885M, modernized nuclear submarine project 949M and languid nuclear missile cruisers Project 11442.

Commander noted that the core of such a force should be carrying ships. «Along with the helicopter landing ship dock foreign-built foundation of such a force in the future to become a new generation of aircraft carriers,» — said the admiral, «Interfax».

He explained that, in contrast to the languid aircraft carriers past generations, it should be a fundamentally new universal warship huge displacement. His main weapon will be manned and unmanned (mechanized) military vehicles operating in the air, on the sea surface, underwater, and possibly in space. Defining the nature of the effectiveness of implementation of these ships will be wearing their presence in the air group aircraft radar surveillance and tracking, as reconnaissance and strike UAVs.

Navy Commander stressed that the creation of these vehicles foresees not only the design and construction of aircraft carriers. «It is envisaged to create a real sea aircraft carrier complex, which will include, besides actually ships, basing points with the right infrastructure (including social component), aircraft, training center crews and air groups of naval aviation, and other elements. Basis for the creation of marine aircraft carrier complex must be created in the period up to 2020 «, — said Teals.

The greatest distance

Admiral for the first time said certain data about missile tests, which will be equipped ships 885M project. «On November 23, the first time carried out a missile test firing missile complex» Movement «of the submerged submarine» Severodvinsk «as the highest range — 1,4 thousand km — along the coast goal,» — said Teals, quoted by RIA «Novosti . » Available types of multipurpose nuclear submarines of the Navy can hit shore targets at a distance of less than 300 km.

Cruise missiles «Movement» and «Onyx» long-range torpedoes, rocket-torpedoes and mines are the main instrument of the nuclear submarine «Severodvinsk». Submarine was laid down at Sevmash in 1993 and became a leading ship project 855 «Ash», which provides for the construction of eight modern submarines for the Russian Navy. In September last year for the first time the submarine went to sea for sea tests. Earlier, the Ministry of Defence department manager to ensure defense procurement Vernigora Andrew said «Severodvinsk» will be adopted by the Navy in 2013.

On Wednesday, the commander in chief has confirmed that in the future it is planned to build a boat. «At the moment, go full-scale tests of the submarine. In view of the finding on board this boat a huge amount of new technical systems and weapons systems, attention is currently paid to the active phase of the joint work of the Navy and industry on these positions, «- he said.

On earth, in heaven and on the sea

Base surface naval forces in the far and near sea zone, according to the Commander in Chief will be frigates and corvettes of Project 22350, 20380 and their modifications.

«They will be replaced ships modular design, kitted wide nomenclature robotic means,» — said the admiral.

According to him, the main ocean-going ships in the medium term should be the destroyer of the new project, which owns a huge impact and defensive capabilities, including significant potential defense.

Commander also said that the first ship of implementing these approaches would be promising corvette aqua protection district. «Development of this ship is already underway. This ship is scheduled to lay a very full range of tasks carried out in the coastal areas of ships and other forces and means: anti, anti-mine, anti, anti-aircraft, mine barrage, fire support for the troops landing and ground forces in the coastal areas, «- said the commander in chief.

Teal explained that the corvette is considered a «towing» based on the belief transition to the modular design of ships larger displacement. The following approaches to modular robotics and comprehensive combat systems commissioned corvette OVR is planned to extend to other ships, forming a view of the future fleet.

As for naval aviation, the admiral said, in the coming years on her arms go promising airborne weapons.

«The main areas of construction of naval aviation in the first step, in 2012-2020, should be the creation and establishment of a promising series aircraft patrol the complex, promising multipurpose helicopter complex shore and ship-based helicopter gunship purchase shipborne. Must be made and adopted promising airborne weapons «- he said.

The main directions of the onshore forces and marines in the first step, said Teals will be the end of the creation of promising coastal missile complex Curb missiles of various types of weapons and coastal missile parts, increasing the possibility of marine brigades operate in different weather criteria, including due to special training units, facilities and equipment for their operations in the north of the Last criteria.

20 years later

Speaking about the long term, Teals said that after 2030 in Russia must be deployed building missile submarines fifth generation.

«In the period from 2021 to 2030, continuing a planned substitution submarines served their terms of service on the nuclear submarine fourth generation should deploy work to create a promising ship missile complex strategic focus and RPLSN fifth generation. Serial building RPLSN fifth generation deployed after 2030, «- said the admiral.

He also said plans to expand the fleet combat abilities due to the introduction of robotics, artificial intelligence systems, and non-lethal weapons.

«Achieving high growth Navy combat abilities can be achieved through the introduction of promising (breakthrough) innovatorskih technology: artificial intelligence systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, marine mechanized systems, non-lethal weapons and act on new physical principles,» — said Teals.

In addition, the principal direction of development of the Navy, according to the Commander in Chief, should be to create groups of naval forces in common purpose, filled with high-precision long-range weapon capable of solving tasks of strategic non-nuclear deterrence principal hazard of critical military and economic targets of the enemy.

«Along with maintaining the Navy sufficient to perform specific tasks population ships, whose base is in the long term will make functional ocean ships (far) and near sea zone modular design must be ensured the creation of highly heterogeneous Navy strike force capable of a rather short time, to regroup on the threatened areas, «- he said.
