    So what kind of overhaul took place now for Smolensk? Avionics, fcs, acoustics?

    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 ?

    Nope. It features relatively simple switch between ejection to left/right nao.

    It still does not possess any qualities that would justify adopting it as new service rifle. No matter how much nicer it looks its absolutely same design with all of its flaws.
    Well, "hole for sand" on right side is gone, it has ambidextrous safety that Galil had for 40 years and there is there is rails. But to not exceed weight of 74M they had to make pencil-thick barrel, rail on top of receiver cover, hinged and not detachable it may be, is not gonna be adequate for mounting optics and their claim on "modularity"... meh. Best they will be able to do is make interchangeable barrels and gas blocks. If that.

    They really need to let AK design go and start to develop new system with such gem of AR design like separate lower and upper in mind.

    But of course its not gonna happen.

    Why do they still put that old rear sight on it. Look how much rail space it takes.
