2 units Parchim-I class frigates in Peenemünde/Germany. The ammunition was swiftly and automatically reloaded from a magazine below deck, by turning the tubes 90° vertically. The barrels of the gun were water-cooled and belt-fed, with each belt containing 550 rounds, but the first round had to be manually chambered. The first ship, Wismar (now the Indonesian KRI Sutanto), was launched on 9 April 1981 in Rostock, and subsequently another 15 ships were built until 1986. Seven more ships were built after that for the Indian Navy. The ships were built by Mazagon Dock Limited (MDL) at a cost of ₹7.5 billion each. There were also two SA-N-5 (Naval SA-7 or Strela II) MANPAD positions aboard the Parchims. The present weapon systems of the Indian Navy are: The Petya class was the NATO reporting name for a class of light frigates designed in the 1950s and built for the Soviet Navy in the 1960s. document.write("

The Parchims were built to replace the obsolete HAI III-class subhunters of the Volksmarine. The cruiser was taken out of service to be modernised in 1982 and substantially upgraded with new weapons and communications systems, re-entering service in 1987. The sonar suite consisted of a bow sonar and a variable depth dipping sonar. var min = now.getMinutes() var hour = now.getHours() ✪ New Russian Steregushchy-class multipurpose corvettes Project 20380.PART-1, ✪ Parchim Strike | Indonesian Navy | HUT TNI ke 69, ✪ Russian Gepard-Class Frigates Launch Cruise Missles, ✪ KRI Lambung Mangkurat Korvet kelas Parchim TNI-AL. The Ak-725 double 57 mm AA gun, designed in 1959, was directed by the ESP-72 fire control system, which received ranging and target bearing information from an MR 103 (NATO codename 'MUFF COB') radar. Maximum magazine capacity was 96 rounds. All in all, the Parchims were up to their task, namely to hunt and destroy enemy submarines in coastal waters. monthstr[3] = "Apr" The ships are named after qualities, with "Sovremenny" translating as "modern" or "contemporary". The AK-230 gun was a fully automatic, stabilized, NN-30 double-barrel, water-cooled, four-chamber revolver cannon. Displacement: 792 tons: Dimensions: 75 x 9.8 x 2.7 meters: Propulsion: 24 knots: Crew: 59: Radar: Armament: 2 57mm (AK 725) 2 30mm (AK 230) 4 torpedo tubes In other words, in order to survive a modern naval war, they had to be escorted by radar guided SAM carriers. The boats are an anti-submarine (ASW) patrol boat version of the Osa-class missile boat. The Parchims were also provided with capable anti-submarine warfare weapons. To make production more economical, the Soviet Union agreed to purchase another 12 ships from Wolgaster Peenewerft built between 1986 and 1990, thereby effectively subsidising the East German shipbuilding industry. The unit in front is 223 - Waren, 'Parchim-I' class anti-submarine frigates The rockets are normally fired in salvos of 1, 2, 4, 8 or 12 rounds. The Stenka class is the NATO reporting name for a class of patrol boats built for the Soviet Navy and Soviet Allies. The ships were designed for coastal anti-submarine warfare. The ships of the Soviet Navy were named Parchim II by NATO. In an emergency, the turret could be manually operated with an optical fire control system. In other words, in order to survive a modern naval war, they had to be escorted by radar guided SAM carriers. According to these East German sources, the AK-230 gun on the Parchim-class corvette was optically guided, thereby leaving the Parchim class without an effective CIWS, and therefore unable to counter anti-shipping missiles. A solution is the use of a 'dipping sonar', which in a way is nothing more than a small sonar attached to a long cable. Though useful as a coastal ASW platform, the Soviet production of the similar but far more powerful Grishaclass made this purchase even more illogical for the Soviet Navy. By using this device the Parchim's sonar system was able to search the different water layers. Range was between 350 m and 6000 m, and the charges could reach 500 m deep. The Kiev class, Soviet designation Project 1143 Krechyet (gyrfalcon), was the first class of fixed-wing aircraft carriers built in the Soviet Union for the Soviet Navy. But without an effective, radar guided SAM missile system, the Parchims were left completely vulnerable to enemy precision guided anti-shipping weapons. var now = new Date(document.lastModified)
