Lider-class destroyer

The Lider class, also referred to it as Shkval class, Russian designation Project 23560 Lider, (Russian: Лидер, 'Lider' meaning "Leader"), is a combined stealth nuclear-powered guided missile destroyer and guided missile cruiser, under consideration for the Russian Navy. The detailed design phase began in 2016–2017, with construction expected to commence after 2020.[2]

Preliminary project approval was given in 2013 and technical documentation was expected to start in 2017. Earlier, media reports suggested the lead vessel could be laid down in 2018 or 2019.[3][1]

Twelve ships are planned in total for the Russia's Northern Fleet and Pacific Fleet; at the very least, Navy needs one ship for long-range cruising, one for operating near the home shore, one for training, and one for repair.[4]

A May 2017 reports indicated, the Lider-class destroyer had been dropped from the Russia's State Armament Programme for 2018–2027 due to the financing reductions.[5][6] However, in June 2017, United Shipbuilding Corporation announced the Russian Defense Ministry had approved the preliminary design of the Lider class destroyer.[7]

As of June 2018, Severnoye Design Bureau continues in work on the future destroyer with technical design to follow soon.[8] It is believed, the construction of the lead vessel could begin as soon as 2023.[2]


"The Lider will be a universal ship, triple-hatted as a destroyer, large ASW ship and guided missile cruiser while being smaller than Project 1144 ships and carrying far more weaponry," according to Valeriy Polovinki, advisor to the director general of the Krylov State Research Center that worked out the destroyer’s preliminary design, as reported in The Defence Talk. "It is meant to replace the Sovremennyy-class destroyers, the main anti-surface warships of the Russian Navy, as well as the Slava-class cruisers and the Udaloy class anti-submarine destroyers."[3]

The Lider class will have extensive food storage and stores, to give them an independent cruising capability of 90 days.[3] The ships will be about 200 metres (656 ft 2 in) long with a beam of 20 metres (65 ft 7 in), and a maximum speed of 32 knots (59 km/h). The vessels are estimated to displace up to 17,500 tons.[3] A flight deck and hangars will accommodate two Kamov Ka-27 or Ka-32 helicopters.

Weapon systems

The Liders' weapon systems are expected to include:[3][9]

Future of the Russian Navy

Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in the 1990s, the Russian Navy struggled to adjust Cold War force structures while suffering severely with insufficient maintenance and a lack of funding. However, improvements in the Russian economy over the last decade have seen a significant rise in defence expenditure and an increase in the numbers of ships under construction with a focus on blue-water vessels.An extensive rearmament program was implemented since 2011, with the Russian Defence Ministry expected to procure 100 warships by 2020. The purchase of 20 submarines, 35 corvettes and 15 frigates is planned. The nature of the other 30 ships is as yet unknown. The Black Sea Fleet will receive 18 new surface ships and submarines, including Kilo-class submarine, Admiral Grigorovich-class frigates, and Ivan Gren-class landing ship. There are also plans to lay down Project 21631 small missile boats and Steregushchiy class corvettes. This state arms program also provided funds for the purchase of two Mistral class assault ships. Furthermore, older vessels such as the Kirov class battlecruisers reportedly would also undergo overhauls and modernisation to bring them back into active service after spending over a decade laid up in reserve.

In early 2013 it was reported that the navy was to receive 54 new warships of various classes and 24 submarines by 2020.

P-800 Oniks

The P-800 Oniks (Russian: П-800 Оникс; English: Onyx), also known in export markets as Yakhont (Russian: Яхонт; English: ruby), is a Soviet / Russian supersonic anti-ship cruise missile developed by NPO Mashinostroyeniya as a ramjet version of P-80 Zubr. Its GRAU designation is 3M55, the air launched Kh-61 variant also exists. The missile has the NATO reporting codename SS-N-26 "Strobile". Development officially started in 1983, and in the 1990s the anti-ship missile was tested on the Project 1234.7 ship. In 2002 the missile passed the whole range of trials and was commissioned. It is reportedly a replacement of the P-270 Moskit, but possibly also of the P-700 Granit. The P-800 was used as the basis for the joint Russian-Indian supersonic missile BrahMos.

S-500 missile system

The S-500 Prometey (Russian: C-500 Прометей, lit. 'Prometheus'), also known as 55R6M "Triumfator-M", is a Russian surface-to-air missile/anti-ballistic missile system intended to replace the A-135 missile system currently in use, and supplement the S-400. The S-500 is under development by the Almaz-Antey Air Defence Concern. Initially planned to be in production by 2014, it is currently targeting 2020 for deployment. With its characteristics, it will be very similar to the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system.
