    Does anyone have any ideas about the relative strengths and weakesses of the P-17A vs the P-15B? On paper they are almost identical and will have an almost identical sensor and weapon mix but one is designated a frigate and the other a destroyer. It doesn't seem to me as though one is more optimised for any one role (say AAW). Both seem to be exceptional all-rounders but why the commonality?


    The P-18 really needs to be a totally new concept (greater displacement with next generation weaponary/sensors) or MASSIVELY superior to the P-17A in terms of lethality (many more VLS) as it stands the P-17A and P-15A/B could almost be used inter-changebly.

    The answer is simple, C&C.

    One ship is designed for providing C&C over a certain area, while P-17A isnt. P-17 A is designed for providing defenses for outer formations of CBG.

    Agree... Wishfull thinking to have the P-18 be designated a Heavy Cruiser/Battle Cruiser and built with weaponry along the lines of an improved Kirov Class :biggthumpup:

    The destroyers have more range and more firepower.

    More range? If so it will only be marginal as they are not that much larger than the P-17As.

    More firepower? I don't see how, the P-15Bs and P-17As have an IDENTICAL number of VLS tubes for SAMs and AShM and will have the exact same main sensors, AFAIK they will also get the same main guns (127mm).

    P-17A is within 10000 Km, P-15A is about 15000 Km.

    8 Brahmos vs 16 Brahmos.
