… Is A Pretty Genius Design

"Russia is constructing half a dozen Project 22160 patrol boats that leverage an innovative and compact design that provides a lot of capability and potentially a huge amount of combat punch in a relatively small seaframe. The concept is innovative enough that it should be studied by western navies as a source of inspiration for their own future multi-role combat vessels…."

I take it this site is run by Putin's nephew.

OK, so it's got a 57mm, a dozen Stinger-equivalent missiles, and *can* carry ~8 Tomahawk-ish missiles (much shorter range, I should add).

That's broadly the same as the LCS…

Huh, it even looks like a LCS.

The class was designed with a slew of missions in mind, including everything from anti-piracy to counter-terrorism, and even strike and special operations support. But above all else they are sea control vessels capable of blue water operations just as much as brown water operations.

Similar mission profiles.

They pack a 57mm А-220М automatic deck gun, a pair of DP-65 grenade launchers, as well as two 14.5mm guns. A Gibka air defense missile turret that can hold up to 12 Igla surface-to-air point defense missiles is also destined to equip these ships. .

Same basic weaponry as well.

The only thing missing are the different mission modules. If I was a LCS designer I would be talking to a lawyer and seeing if any copyright laws were violated with this design! LOL!

However it is probably way cheaper.

Well, it is good to know that they too have a ship that hast to be towed to and from battle.
