Overview
-

“Singing frigates,” “Greyhounds of the Oceans” – each of these names contains a little bit of truth about large antisubmarine warfare ships Project 61. Since their emergence until now they are very popular with both maritime specialists and ship lovers. It could not be otherwise, because they are exceptionally good looking vessels.

They were the first Soviet units of the new generation, projected and built separate from foregoing schemes. Their uniqueness was not only based on beautiful architecture, but also on some other assets. For instance, they were the first ships in the world propelled only by the power of gas turbines.
