Why did the soviet navy not continue the komar class after 1967?

I suppose the Osa was seen as a better way of getting twice the bang per buck. It was thought at the time that you had to fire a lot of SS-N-2s to get a hit.

But they could convert Komars directly from P6 class patrol boats, whereas Osas had to be completley constructed from scratch. Also, they had two pairs of launchers; more Bang, yes, but also more Buck.

Do you wish for the thread to be liquidated?

Its not bang for buck.

The Op Profile changed for Baltic & Black sea fleets. The Osa I gives you approx 800Km at 35KN but the Komar only gives 400KM at 40KN.

Sov navy attack sqdns in Baltic & Black sea needed to operate and deny straights between denmark/sweden and greece/turkey. this was a way of increasing optempo without having to put support vessels in the attack line. Remember comrades the concept of RAS still not fully fledged in teh Soviet navy then.
