Description: The Soviet Union developed the Project 1155, also referred to as Fregat and Udaloy, class destroyers in the 1970s on the basis of the Krivak class anti-submarine frigate. These ships were designed to engage submarines as their primary target with surface ships being their secondary target. The Udaloy class destroyers sensor suite includes Fregat MA air surveillance radar, hull mounted sonar and variable depth sonar. The propulsion system is based in four gas turbines in a COmbined Gas And Gas (COGAG) arrangement allowing a top speed of 35 knots. These destroyers are equipped with hangar and flight deck for two Ka-25 and/or Ka-27 anti-submarine warfare (ASW) helicopters. The Soviet Navy and Russian Navy commissioned 13 Udaloy class destroyers between 1980 and 1999.

The Udaloy III is a planned upgrade for surviving Udaloy class destroyers to allow these ships to operate into the 2020s and even 2030s. The Russian Navy plans call for the upgrade of four to eight destroyers in the early 2020s. These destroyers will be upgraded because of the better performance of their propulsions system compared with Project 956 class destroyers. The exact specifications of the upgrades remain unknown but they should include refitting the weapon system with new supersonic and subsonic missiles to engage both surface and airborne targets as well as an upgraded sensors suite. There are reports about the Udaloy III encompassing Kalibr as well as Onyx missile systems being placed into new vertical launching systems along with upgraded short-range air defense system such as the Pantsyr-M.
