    Another news of Russian underwater fleet.
    B-177 Lipetsk (Project 877 or Kilo-class) returned to the base after combat duty.



    K-410 Smolensk (Project 949A or Oscar-class) starts trials after major overhaul at JSC Zvezdochka.

    Hi Arnie! As far as I know the first Project 949AM ship will be K-132 Irkutsk. The sub is on JSC "Zvezda Far East Plant" (Primorsky Krai, near Vladivostok) since 2008. The blueprints of Project 949AM will be ready in January 2016.

    Well it's not a secret and you can read about it in the links from my post (if you know Russian). It was a major overhaul with reactors reload and repairs of an old systems and parts like mechanical, weapons, the hull and so called 'radio electronic armament'. They just extending lifetime of Batons (a long loafs as we called them).

    Nope, 72 Onyxes (3 in each Granit launcher tube) or 96 Kalibrs (4 in each launcher tube) missiles.

    Have they reveled any range figures for Onyxes ? Considering Granit was 500 km can Onyx match it in range ?

    On Mash website site which manufactures Onyxes they were talking of modified engine and new fuel for Oniks.

    There are some rumours that Granit has a range about 700 km. But all information is still classified, because the missiles are still in service. As for the Onyx I guess it can match with Granit if we speak about 500 km.

    Unique photo: Granit's double kill, the missiles were launched from an Oscar-class submarine, filmed from Il-38, Pacific Fleet, 1995

    Requirment set for Granit was 700-600 km. Granit with a nuclear payload has i believe range of 620~625 km. Nuclear warhead tend to be heavier then conventional warhead so it's possible Granite has a range of 700ish km.

    On Mash website site which manufactures Onyxes they were talking of modified engine and new fuel for Oniks.

    Were you see? source ?
