    Looks pretty decent to me:

    Freeboard is very high, exaggerated by the covered bow.
    Its a cable-layer, apparently related to the new hydrophone cable network.

    Not really, pretty standard for an offshore services vessel.

    eg Skandi Hawk (offshore supply vessel). Freeboard varies with primary function.

    3 more missile ships to be upgraded to 1234.1 level, like Smerch.

    Interesting... is that a 57mm gun at the extreme back or a 76.2mm gun?

    Looks like a 57mm gun to me... interesting they are using both 30mm gatling and 57mm... hints that perhaps they will see them as complimentary and use them together rather than replace the 30mm with 57mm.

    Sound like a sensible thing to me... the 57mm would certainly pack range and punch, but 30mm rounds are cheaper and easier to carry in large numbers... and many targets don't need a bigger round.

    The former gun probably didn't had a good CIWS caracteristic so they put the ak630. I'm surprised by the size of the gun, the ground version is much smaller. Are the munitions inside of the turret or under the bridge like in bigger guns ?

    We may see that gun ending on Gorshkovs as a secondary CIWS if it works well.

    76mm

    Кроме того, на корабли будет поставлена артиллерийская установка нового поколения АК-176МА.

    That would explain its size... though in fairness, while being a very big 57mm gun turret it is actually a rather good sized 76.2mm turret.

    I would assume all the clever new rounds for the 57mm gun will be adapted to larger calibre shells like they did with their guided artillery rounds for land based guns.
