About This File
This model represents the Sovremenny class destroyer, the primary anti-surface warship of the Russian Navy. The Sovremenny is very heavily armed, with two twin-barrel 130mm automatic guns, eight Moskit missiles (SS-N-22 Sunburn), one of the fastest and most feared anti-ship missiles in the world, two launchers for Shtil SAMs (SA-N-7 Gadfly or SA-N-12 Grizzly), four AK-630 CIWS, four heavy ASW torpedoes, two ASW rocket launchers, and decoy rocket launchers.
Three different versions of the ship are provided:
- Sovremenny class destroyer: Project 956, the original version of the ship. Armed with Sunburn and Gadfly missiles.
- Sovremenny (99) class destroyer: Project 956A, an improved version with updated radar, modernized Sunburns, and Grizzly missiles.
- Hangzhou class destroyer: Project 956E, export version sold to China. Currently in service with the PLAN.
(An additional variant, Project 956EM, was sold to China. This version is quite different, with the aft 130mm gun removed, hangar lengthened, and CIWS replaced with two Kashtan systems. Only two exist, so I didn't include them. I may release this version if there is sufficient demand for it.)
In any of its variants, the Sovremenny is a dangerous opponent and will make naval strike missions significantly more difficult.
