Our homeland has recently tested the latest version of its own anti-ship missile Klub. RCC 3K14 Kaliber was successfully launched from a vertical launcher mine type frigate cheetah. Kaliber can use either antisubmarine antiship warhead. More old Klub 3M54 weigh two tons, run from 533 mm torpedo tube and carry 200 pound warhead. Protivokorablnaya version has a range of 300 km actions and speed up to 3000 km per hour on the final step of the line of motion of its own flight. There are also versions of the air and ground-based. Ground version of the missile also has the highest rate at a finite step movement svogo flight line and carries four hundred pound warhead.
The final step is the trajectory of these missiles, starting at a distance of 15 kilometers from the target, making them particularly against unsafe ships. Earlier step rocket moves at a height of about 32 meters, which makes it quite difficult to detect. «High Speed» approach (Through the use of additional rockets) means that it overcomes the last fifteen miles least than 20 seconds. This makes it difficult to intercept advanced anti-missile weapons.
Gepards class ships cost about $ 200 million for each and have been in operation for 10 years. These ships form the 102 meters in length, have a crew of 98 sailors and officers and own autonomy in 15 days. The highest speed of 50 km per hour. These frigates are designed for coastal patrol. They were designed to equip eight anti-ship missiles (usually 552 kg X-35) and one antiaircraft missile launcher (20 missiles). Also installed 76-mm cannon, two 6 barreled 30mm anti-missile automatic cannon, four 533-mm torpedo tubes (for anti-submarine operations) and 12-barrel rocket launcher ASW. The ship also carries up to 20 sea mines. Electrical equipment includes a navigation system, air defense radars, and sonar. There is an opportunity to provide a helipad (but no hangar).
