In summary exept Corvettes and Kilo 636M delays for all new and modernised classes ships or submarines BTW now announced Oscar II/949AM finaly delivered for 2021 and not 2018.This thread documents the status of the modern Russian Navy. The actual ships under construction and being launched and commissioned. And it will focus on the non-strategic classes...meaning no SSBN, Orei class.
They have some good designs...some of them very good.
But all in all, their rate of production and ability to get vessels launched, outfitted, and commissioned has been an absolute embarrassment.
Those seven classes constitute the really modern Russian Navy. Several of these classes started design, and were in fact laid down around 2001 or the early 2000s.
Sadly, of them all, the Russians in the last 16 years have been able to get only 19 ships of these classes commissioned. 19 ships in 17 years.
Compare that to what the Chinese have done, or what the US is doing...where both of those nations have literally built and commissioned dozens and dozens of vessels, and many of the larger destroyers, amphibious ships, and aircraft carriers.
