Novik Class FFG by PaintFan08 Novik Class FFG by PaintFan08
Novik Class Guided Missile Frigate

Country: Russian Federation
Introduced: 2015
Crew: 180

Armament: 1x 76mm DP
3x VLS System (30x SA-N-9 Gauntlet SAMs)
8x SS-N-25 Switchblade SSM (VLS Launcher)
4x CADS 30mm CA (3x SA-N-30 PDM)
21 inch ASW Torpedo Tubes

Aircraft: 2x Ka-27 ASW

In Service: Russian Federation, Peoples Republic of China, Ukraine, Iran, Libya

The first of a new fleet of modern Russian surface combatants, the Novik is a multi-mission frigate. With increased funds in the first decade of the 21st Century, the Russian Navy sought to modernize its forces and replace its aging Cold War era ships. The first Novik was laid down in 2010 with the first models entering service five years later. Designed with low observable characteristics the Novik is also part of a new design philosophy. It is also one of the first heavily computerized Russian warships.

Her main gun is a 76mm dual purpose with specialized ammunition. Recent upgrades to the Noviks are reported to include new laser guided shells. The real offensive punch comes from the eight Switchblade surface to surface missiles. They have a range of 130 kilometers and have sea skimming capability. Air defense comes from the SA-N-9s packed into three VLS launchers forward of the Switchblade VLS tubes. For close quarter defense the Noviks also sport the new Russian 30mm caseless Close Air Defense System (CADS). The latest produced ships of the class have three of the CADS fixed (originally they were recessed and popped out when firing) with the new Russian roling airframe missile (SA-N-30).

Noviks are in use with each of the Russian Navy’s fleets. Export versions of the Novik contain fewer of the latest Russian computer and radar systems. The caseless ammunition CADS systems are replaced by the standard Russian CADS-N 30mm dual gun systems.

Heh, not as bad as a ship idea I have. 22 inch super-cavitation torps, 10 inch helical coil-guns, a impressive array of projectile (using CAP propellents capable of sending rounds up to 5km/s), micro-missiles, and Free Electron Lasers, and plenty of missiles, and it's considered a 'destroyer'.

Which is true in that way because of the multi purpose guns and missiles
