Very realistic drawings, superbly done, very well designed and cleverly thought!

Fantastic work on those Soviet AORs Hood. One thing that the Soviet and Russian Navies always seemed to lack was capable, ocean-going replenishment vessels in sufficient numbers.

Something a little different this time, some hovercraft (some in FD scale).

KvP-92 Class

KvP-92 Class, Baltic Fleet 1993 (l), Black Sea Fleet 1995 (m), KGB Border Guards Murmansk Oblast 1996 (r)

The KvP-92 was an amphibious air cushion vehicle developed in the early 1990s for the Soviet Naval Infantry, in effect a hovercraft BMP. The KvP-92 was found to be equally suitable for the Arctic brigades. There is a bow ramp and a door on either side for the embarked troops and the turret is based on that fitted to the BMP-2. The skirts are made of a material similar to Kevlar and have a self-sealing capability similar to that of a puncture-proof tyre.

Displacement: 11 tons
Dimensions: 9.64m (long, overall), 5.7m (beam, skirts fully inflated)
Armament: a turret with 1x 30mm 2A42 autocannon and roof-mounted 9M113 Konkurs ATGM
Cargo Capacity: 1 ton of cargo or 8 troops
Machinery: 1x turboshaft powering a pusher propeller plus 1x axial lift fan
Complement: 3

Drawing Note: this design was in the GDW Twilight 2000 Soviet Vehicles Guide book (1987) for the RPG Twilight 2000 set in a post-WW3 world with the war taking place during 1995-97.

KvP-92v Class

KvP-92 Class, Baltic Fleet 1993 (l), Pacific Sea Fleet 1994 (r)

A variant of the KvP-92 for mobile fire support armed with an 82mm 2B9 Vasilek automatic mortar. This weapon could only be fired when the vehicle was stationary, as it tended to destabilise the vehicle due to the recoil.

Displacement: 11 tons
Dimensions: 9.64m (long, overall), 5.7m (beam, skirts fully inflated)
Armament: 1x 82mm 2B9 Vasilek automatic mortar
Machinery: 1x turboshaft powering a pusher propeller plus 1x axial lift fan
Complement: 4

KvP-92z Class

KvP-92 Class, Baltic Fleet 1994 (l), Caspian Sea Flotilla 1997 (r)

A variant of the KvP-92 for air-defence, armed with a six-barrelled 30mm gatling gun but lacking any all-weather fire-control equipment, being reliant on open sights. The gatling gun also gave heavy fire-support against ground targets.

Displacement: 11 tons
Dimensions: 9.64m (long, overall), 5.7m (beam, skirts fully inflated)
Armament: 1x6 30mm GSh-6-30 gatling gun
Machinery: 1x turboshaft powering a pusher propeller plus 1x axial lift fan
Complement: 4


KvP-121 Class

KvP-121 Class, '142', Pacific Fleet, 1997

The KvP-121 class entered service in the early 1990s as a heavy transport hovercraft. Featuring nose and stern doors and ramps for Ro-Ro capability, the hovercraft is lightly armed and unusually for a hovercraft relies on vectored thrust from its gas turbines for horizontal propulsion and steering. The initial hovercraft were assigned to the 18th Hovercraft Transport Regiment of the Pacific Fleet, based on the Kamchatka peninsula.

Displacement: 86 tons
Dimensions: 37.6m (long, overall skirts inflated), 35.6m (long, upper hull), 18.2m (beam, skirts fully inflated)
Armament: 2x2 12.7mm Utes-M machine-gun mounts
Cargo Capacity: 225 tons of cargo/vehicles or 150 troops
Machinery: gas turbines powering 8x axial lift fans plus jet exhausts for horizontal and lateral travel
Complement: 8

Drawing Note: this design was in the GDW Twilight 2000 Soviet Vehicles Guide book (1987) for the RPG Twilight 2000 set in a post-WW3 world with the war taking place during 1995-97.

Kirov, 1979

The Soviets required a nuclear-powered cruiser to escort its growing aircraft carrier fleet and to act as a flagship for anti-submarine forces and the defensive screen protecting the Arctic nuclear ballistic-missile 'bastions'.
The Project 1144 would combine surface-striking power with aerial protection for the fleet as well as having a powerful anti-submarine armament. Five of the Kirov-class cruisers were built and distributed among the Northern and Pacific Fleets, although Andropov served as the Flagship of the Black Sea Fleet. Rapidly outdated by advances in missile and radar technology these ships were to be replaced by newer cruisers in the late 1990s.

Kirov: completed 30/08/1979
Frunze: completed 24/07/1981
Kalinin: completed 14/10/1983
Yuriy Andropov: completed 12/07/1984
Dzerzhinsky: completed 04/08/1985

Displacement: 25,000 tons
Dimensions: 237m (long, overall), 26.5m (beam), 8m draught
Armament: 4x2 76mm AK-726, 10x6 30mm AK-630 CIWS, 2x2 P-500 Bazalt SSM launchers, 2x2 M-11 Shtorm SAM launchers, 2x2 9K33 Osa SAM launchers, 1x2 MS-18 launcher for RPK-1 Vikrh, 2x5 533mm torpedo tubes for torpedoes & RPK-2 Vyuga, 2x RBU-12000 Udav ASW rocket launchers, 2x RBU-1000 ASW rocket launchers
Airgroup: 4x Ka-25 'Hormone' helicopters
Machinery: nuclear powered
Speed: 30kts

Drawing Notes: Special thanks goes to Alex (Alvama) for sending the sourced drawing for this earlier in the week. This is another Western artist's impression of Kirov, this time by naval artist Elio Orregino in 1979. Elio must have seen either intelligence or Soviet sources on the Kirov's hull and layout as the form is very much like the real Project 1144 Orlan, although the details are quite different. The speculated armament and electronics fit was heavily based on that fitted to the Kresta-class, the small number of 'Shipwrecks' perhaps being the oddest feature compared to the real Kirov's battery. The base drawing had a fairly accurate radar and ECM fit based on that of the Krestas but lacked any 'Tilt Drum' for the AK-630s, so I've added these along with the 'Pop Group' for the Osa-Ms. The underwater hull is not shown in the source so I've recycled the Sovetsky Soyuz hull based on that of Kirov.

Another fantastic entry...I was wondering if you would do this version as well :)

Nice and interesting drawing. I wonder how troublesome it would be to hand off targets from Top Pair directly to the missile fire control sets.

Never mind, Karas did this.
