Admiral Vinogradov: Large Anti-Submarine Ship

The large anti-submarine ship “Admiral Vinogradov” built in Kaliningrad, joined the Russian navy twenty five years ago. It is still successfully sailing, being on the sea since October 2013. Very soon it will set a course to its home base in Vladivostok.

  1. “Designed as an anti-submarine warfare ship, the Udaloy II (Admiral Vinogradov) class has limited anti-surface and anti-air capabilities. The class is considered an equivalent to Spruance-class destroyers of the US Navy.” http://www.naval-technology.com/projects/udaloy-class/

    “The Spruance-class destroyer was developed by the United States to replace a large number of World War II-built destroyers, and was the primary destroyer built for the U.S. Navy during the 1970s.” The Spruance-class destroyer was developed by the United States to replace a large number of World War II-built Allen M. Sumner- and Gearing-class destroyers, and was the primary destroyer built for the U.S. Navy during the 1970s.

    Twenty years out of date when launched, and retained far beyond their useful life.

    It’s a lovely antique, though.
