    Any updates on P17?

    I have not heard about the 3 P17 ships for quite a while.

    Only found some news about P17A. Have the P17s entered service already?

    Thanks

    First of the Project 17 ships will be entering service by the end of this year.

    Cool.

    I guess the first ship must have been doing sea trial for a while. Are there any news on what kind of anti air missile system has been installed? Arm launcehed version of Shtil or the VLS version? Or even Barak 2? Those are what I have heard before.

    There are some heated debate in chinese forums on what kind of system is used. I guess now we can have a final answer.

    I think our ship builders takes quite a long time to build these warships.

    SAM System could be SA-17+Barak-1 or SA-19.

    P17 was once spotted almost finished 6-8 months ago in dock by google earth, its not there since then, I'm sure going through sea trials.

    I also wonder what anti-missile system it'll get... possibly VLS Shtil, btw I can post pictures of P17 , P28 ASW corvette which is a entirely Indian design and the new carrier...as appeared a month or two back in a magazine.

    Barak 2 might be test fired this year and range as mentioned in MOD report head on against a small low flying missile sized target will be possibly around 70 kms roughly.

    Joey, which book did you get those photos out of? It looks like a pretty interesting book though
    I have no idea what I'm doing. Honestly!
