naval_related_history_'s Instagram Photo - "🇵🇱 ORP Warszawa (1920)" •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - Polish river monitors Pińsk (left), Warszawa (centre) and Toruń (right), with the command vessel General Sikorski (extreme right). -------------------------------------------- Warszawa was built in 1920 in the Free City of Danzig for the Polish Navy. Initially she was armed with two 105 mm guns and five machine guns, and by the late 1930s she carried three 75 mm guns and four machine guns. In the Polish River flotilla operational plans, the Pinsk flotilla was to form a mobile strategic reserve of the Polish Army on the Pina River and was to constitute the core of the forces defending the area of the Pinsk Marshes. The Polish commander-in-chief and Marshal of Poland, Edward Rydz-Śmigły, forecast that the area would be used for a last stand by the Polish Army, where it would await the relief on the western front from Poland's allies. However the Soviet Invasion of Poland on September 17th, 1939 made the plans obsolete. During actions against the Soviets and the Germans, most of the ships were scuttled by their crews to avoid capture. In 1939-40 most of them were refloated, repaired, rearmed and included in the Soviet Pinsk Naval Flotilla (1940). They took an active part in the later phases of WWII on the eastern front but were mostly destroyed in 1941. -------------------------------------------- Like all of the ships of the Riverine Flotilla of the Polish Navy in Pinsk, Warszawa was not used in combat during the German Invasion of Poland. After the Soviet invasion of Poland, she was scuttled on the Pripyat River on September 18th 1939, because of the impossibility of the monitor's withdrawal. She was raised on October 11th 1939 by the Soviets, towed to Factory No 300 in Kiev, repaired and commissioned as Vitebsk (Витебск). She served in the Dnepr Flotilla, then the Pinsk Flotilla. From July 1941 she fought against the Germans on the Berezina, Desna and Dnieper Rivers, in the defence of Kiev. ⬇️⬇️ continued

Launched in 1982 in Poland, she is the lead ship of the Projekt 874 class, known as modified Finik class in NATO code. She is the sister ship of ORP Heweliusz. She is named after Henryk Arctowski, a Polish scientist and explorer. In July 2006 the crew of the ship performed the positive identification of the wreckage of the German World War II aircraft carrier Graf Zeppelin. -------------------------------------------- Okręt ten został zaprojektowany w Polsce i zbudowany w Stoczni Północnej w Gdańsku. Jego okrętem bliźniaczym jest ORP Heweliusz (typ ten czasami jest określany jako Heweliusz). Wodowany został listopada 20 1981. Do służby wszedł listopada 27 1982. Od tej pory wypełnia zarówno zadania hydrograficzne dla Marynarki Wojennej jak i naukowe dla instytucji cywilnych. Brał udział w akcjach ratowniczych: we wrześniu 1984 podjął załogę czechosłowackiego jachtu „Makalu 80”, a w 1988 r. odnalazł załogę kutra rybackiego „Dar 123”. W 1989 roku odbył dwa rejsy na Spitsbergen z ekipą naukową PAN, a w 1990/1991 r. przewiózł na Stację im. H. Arctowskiego ekipę XV Wyprawy Antarktycznej PAN.

The two projects have been modified and rearmed with modern missile systems like the Uran-E and are more capable ships than the Tarantul types. The ships are built by the Russian Vympel Shipyard. Russia received at least one boat for trials in the 1990s and in 1999 Vietnam ordered two vessels. Vietnam is currently the main user of the Molniya class, with two Russian made ships and 6 locally built ships. Vietnam started its own production line of 1241.8 Molniya ships with the assistance of Almaz Central Design Bureau in Russia. The first two locally built ships were delivered on July 2014 and the last two in October 2017. The Vietnamese ships are armed with 1 AK-176 76mm gun, 16 Uran-E anti ship missiles, 4 Igla-M air defence missiles and 2 AK-630 close in weapon systems. -------------------------------------------- The Vietnamese ships are also larger at 56.9m in length and a maximum displacement of 563 tons. They have a range of 1,700 nautical miles with 44 crew members on board. The Indian Navy ordered 4 further modified 1241.8 Tarantuls, this order was later reduced to 2. These last two ships of the Veer-class are armed with 16 SS-N-25 'Switchblade' / URAN E Missiles, 1 OTO Melara 76 mm instead of the AK-176, and MR 352 Positiv-E (NATO: Cross Dome) Radar. In 2009 Libya ordered 3 ships however due to the Libyan civil war and the destruction of several warships and bases of Libyan Navy by NATO bombing, the corvettes were never delivered. If the corvettes had been delivered, most likely the ships would have met a similar fate as the majority of the ships in the Libyan Navy. #The🇷🇺TarantulClassCorvettes

This class of ships could be distinguished by the lack of fire control radar on the roof of the bridge. Instead, the fire control radar, X-band "Garpun-Bal" (NATO: "Plank Shave"), built for the anti-ship missiles, was installed on the top of the mast. Other equipment included a small navigation radar type "Kivach-2" on the bridge roof (or MR-312 "Pechera-1" on the ships of the Polish Navy), and the gun-fire control radar MR-123 Vympel (NATO: "Bass Tilt") at the foot of the mast. Two PK-16 decoy launchers were also installed. The model of the missiles in the KT-138 launch containers were P-20 (NATO: SS-N-2B), basically they were P-15 updated with the new guidance system but with the original 40 km range. -------------------------------------------- Between 1977 and 1979, 22 ships of this class were produced exclusively for export. Only one of these ships, R-26, was retained by the Soviet Navy for training purposes. India bought five of these ships as Veer class corvettes, and would later produce eight ships of the same class domestically. Vietnam also bought six Project 1241.RE ships. #The🇷🇺TarantulClassCorvettes

NATO called the first version of the class as Tarantul-II, given that they had a better sensor suite/equipment than the ships of the following class Tarantul-I, which was produced exclusively for export. The first version, based on the Pauk-class hull, though with a significantly increased weight. The ships were equipped with four SS-N-2 'Styx' ship-to-ship missiles (either the 40 km range P-15 'Termit' missile or the later P-20 variant with 80 km range) and the associated 'Plank Shave' radar targeting system (45 km range in active mode of surveillance, 75–100 km range in passive mode, with an added air surveillance capability). 1 × AK–176 76.2 mm main gun and 2 × AK-630 30 mm six-barreled Gatling guns, the latter CIWS system supported by the 'Bass Tilt' targeting radar. Furthermore, there is a Fasta-N SA-N-5 quadruple MANPAD launcher and two PK-16 decoy launchers. -------------------------------------------- The propulsion of the corvettes is a COGOG system (Combined Gas or Gas) consisting of two M70 at 12,000 hp (8826 kW) high power gas turbines with a combined 24200 horsepower output for full power and two cruise gas turbines type M75 with a combined output of 5,000 hp (2942 kW). The top speed is 38 knots. Between 1979 and 1984, 13 ships of the type were built. Another ship R-55 was rebuilt after its completion as a test vessel for the "Kortik" short-range defense system for Project 1241.7. #The🇷🇺TarantulClassCorvettes

The need for these improvements was underscored by the First Gulf War, when 12 Iraqi 'Osa-I's' were destroyed or damaged by short ranged Sea Skua anti-ship missiles. They were attacked by British Lynx helicopters, but the Osa crews didn't notice them because they flew below their radar horizon. In the Tarantul, both the single 76 mm main gun and the two 30 mm Gatling-type guns are used for air defence, together with a comprehensive electronic warfare suite. -------------------------------------------- The boats are built by the Petrovsky yard (Leningrad), Rybinsk and Ulis yard (Vladivostok). A version of these ships for coastal anti submarine warfare and patrol was developed as the Pauk class corvette or Project 1241.2. The Indian navy paid approximately $30 million each to license-produce Tarantul-I in the early nineties. With over 30 sales on the export market the Tarantul has been a relative success for the Russian shipbuilding industry. #The🇷🇺TarantulClassCorvettes

naval_related_history_'s Instagram Photo - "🇵🇱 ORP Kaszub (1987)" •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• First photo - The Polish Navy anti-submarine warfare corvette ORP Kaszub (1987), plowing through rough waves in the Baltic Sea. -------------------------------------------- ORP Kaszub is a corvette of the Polish Navy, in service since 1987, the sole ship of the Project 620 class. She was the first ocean-going warship built in Poland. As of 2017 she is in active service. The work on her design began in 1971, but the construction of the first ship started only in 1984, being laid down at Stocznia Północna (Northern Shipyard), Gdańsk on June 9th 1984. Kaszub was launched on May 11th 1986, but was found to have a warped hull and propeller shafts, which required repair. When the ship was commissioned on March 15th 1987, Kaszub was not fitted with much of the planned armament, with a 9K33 Osa (NATO codename SA-N-4 Gecko) surface-to-air missile launcher being omitted because of its unreliability on small, high speed ships, while the ship's main gun armament was absent because of stability problems. Originally it was planned to build 7 ships of this class, but in the end only one was constructed. At first, Kaszub saw little operational use, being loaned to the Polish Border guard from 1990 to January 1991. In September 1991, the ship was fitted with a AK-176 76 mm gun turret forward. -------------------------------------------- W lipcu 1989 roku "Kaszub" został wypożyczony do Kaszubskiego Dywizjonu Morskiej Brygady Okrętów Pogranicza MW RP w Gdańsku-Westerplatte. Tam okręt był intensywnie eksploatowany, co przyczyniło się do dotarcia mechanizmów i wyszkolenia załogi. Służbę w Dywizjonie zakończył 1 stycznia 1991 roku i powrócił do 9 FOW; od tej pory datuje się jego normalna służba jako okrętu bojowego. Wszedł w skład 11. Dywizjonu Ścigaczy 9. FOW. W roku 1992 zamontowano na nim dziobową armatę 76,2 mm AK-176M. ⬇️⬇️ continued

She was the first ocean-going warship built in Poland. As of 2017 she is in active service. The work on her design began in 1971, but the construction of the first ship started only in 1984, being laid down at Stocznia Północna (Northern Shipyard), Gdańsk on June 9th 1984. Kaszub was launched on May 11th 1986, but was found to have a warped hull and propeller shafts, which required repair. When the ship was commissioned on March 15th 1987, Kaszub was not fitted with much of the planned armament, with a 9K33 Osa (NATO codename SA-N-4 Gecko) surface-to-air missile launcher being omitted because of its unreliability on small, high speed ships, while the ship's main gun armament was absent because of stability problems.
