Description: The Indian Navy's Rajput-class destroyers were built in the former Soviet Union in the 1980s based on the improved Kashin destroyer project, also known as Kashin II. These ships are suitable for anti-aircraft warfare (AAW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface warfare (ASuW). Their propulsion system consists of four gas turbines and two shafts developing 94,000-shp which translates into a top speed of 35 knots. The Rajput-class destroyers feature an aft flight deck and hangar to accommodate either a Ka-25 or Ka-27 ASW helicopter.

The Rajput-class destroyer weapon system comprises two SA-N-1 Goa air defense systems mounted at the ship's bow and stern with 44 missiles, four SS-N-2C Styx anti-ship missiles mounted at bow, one dual 76.2mm naval gun, four 30mm anti-aircraft guns, two RBU-6000 ASW rocket launchers and five 21-inch torpedo tubes. The lead ship of this class, INS Rajput, received the BrahMos supersonic anti-ship missile replacing the SS-N-2C missiles in September 2005. According to the Indian press, the remaining four destroyers will be upgraded with the new supersonic anti-ship missile.
