The Udaloy-class are a series of anti-submarine destroyers built for the Soviet Navy. Nowadays in the Russian Navy there are eight ships of this class. The Russian designation is Project 1155 Frigate (or Frigate bird). Twelve ships of the Udaloy class were built between 1980 and 1991, and the 13th ship was built according to a modified design, since the Udaloy II class succeeded in 1999. It accompanies the Sovremenny class destroyer in Anti-aircraft warfare and Anti-surface warfare operations.
The concept of a surface ship of special purpose was developed by Soviet engineers. The Udaloy class are most commonly considered as the Soviet counterpart to the American Spruance class destroyers.
After the Udaloy’s commissioning, in order to provide more balanced capabilities, the Soviet engineers started the developing of an upgrade package in 1982. The Fregat II Class Large ASW Ships (NATO Codename Udaloy II), the only multipurpose destroyer in the Russian Navy, is intended to be the equivalent of the American Arleigh Burke class ships.
The Large ASW Ship:
Northern Fleet – Vice-Admiral Kulakov, Marshal Vasilyevsky, Admiral Levchenko, Admiral Kharlamov, Admiral Chabanenko (Udaloy II class).
Russian Pacific Fleet – Admiral Tributs, Marshal Shaposhnikov, Severomorsk, Admiral Vinogradov, Admiral Panteleyev.Author of the post picture is Leonid Yakutin
