Overview
-

The work on the design of future long-range active anti-aircraft and anti-submarine 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.

REVIEWS

…it supplies more than just external views, with cutawars showing helicopter stowage, powerplant/drive shaft arrangements, aft boat desks and even the hull-mounted quintuple torpedo launchers. Its 18 pages are packed with information - ideal for planning a scratch-build project of this Cold War anti-submarine vessel.
Airfix Model World

...this book would be very useful to someone wishing to superdetail the kits, but equally valuable to the scratchbuilder.
Scale Military Modelling International Magazine

A particularly interesting subject from the days of the Cold War, and kits are available so the modeller should find this very handy.
