Current Active Inventory: 265 Fleet Units


Russia National Flag Graphic


Last Updated: 8/16/2022 | © www.WDMMW.org


The modern Russian Navy keeps a solid focus on its coastline and underwater activities with a noticeable commitment to corvettes (31.2%), submarines (21.8%), and mine/countermine warfare (18.0%). The rest of the fleet is relatively balanced, covering such types as aircraft carrier, cruiser/battlecruiser, destroyer, frigate, offshore patrol, and amphibious assault support. The aircraft carrier fleet is made up of a sole unit, the aging Kuznetsov, which is inherently limited on the modern battlefield and ungoing refit. Likewise, the sizeable submarine fleet (58 units) leans heavily on units reaching, or well-past, their optimal operating ages. The cruiser force is also an aging group with the youngest example entering its 23rd year-of-service. The destroyer force sees the same problem, units aging closer to 30 years. Conversely, the frigate force (11 units) has been addressed with new additions. By and large, the corvette fleet makes up the largest part of the Russian surface combatant force, numbering 83 units with more on the way. These, too, are an aging group but bouyed by new arrivals. The mine warfare division is primarily aging Soviet Cold War-era instruments as is the bulk of the amphibious assault/support force. Nevertheless, some 80 new hulls are to make their way into service in the coming year, forcing a modernization of key parts of the Russian fleet.


The following represents an overview of the modern naval fighting capabilities of the Russian Navy (2022). The service currently counts 265 total units in its active naval inventory. This total includes frontline commissioned vessels but excludes smaller patrol vessels, auxiliary / survey ships, replenishment, and historical ceremonial types. The WDMMW review takes into account specific categories of warships covering attack, defense, and general support designs. Inventory numbers and related unit types are provided as-is and derived from publically-available information / sources. "On Order" totals found at the bottom of this article are related to any future hulls currently under procurement/construction though said hulls may not be delivered for service in the current year for various reasons.

Age plays a vital role in the life of any warship as hulls and various onboard technologies are pushed to the limit, ultimately exposed to the corrosive and generally unforgiving effects of life at sea. Such degradation often leads to modernizations, refits, or outright retirement. Our color gauge attempts to showcase a vessel's current state within the fleet, helping to detail those outgoing vessels against those at the midway point of their service or those just having been commissioned.
