The work on the design of future long-range active antiaircraft and antisubmarine ship – as it was initially determined – was conducted by the Leningrad CKB-17 in close cooperation with OKB-938 led by N.I. Kamov. The author of the ship’s design, which was given the number 1123 and the code “Kondor”, was A.S. Sawiczew, and from 1967 – A.W. Marinich. The main task of the ship was to search and destroy American nuclear submarines carrying “Polaris” ballistic missiles in the Antarctic Ocean and Barents Sea.


Although this book is small it is intensely focused on modeler's needs for building this ship in any scale. Two time periods (early and final appearances) are detailed, along with the helicopters shipped. Building the Moskva'ssistership, theLeningrad, would also benefit from this book. Drawings of the details, especially radars and weapons, would be useful for other post-1960 Soviet & Russian surface warships, making this book more than a one-ship

"Its 18 pages are packed with information - ideal for planning a scratch-build project of this Cold War anti-submarine vessel."
