    There are only 6 Udaloys and 8 Sovremennys, so at least Russia will finally have some decent ships bigger than Corvettes in the double digits. Rolling Eyes

    6 Udalois and 1 Sovremenny, all others are retired and this last one will be soon as well


    Check your numbers
    As of today, there are 9 Udaloys in service (7 active + 2 being modernized) and 4 Sovremennys in service (2 active + 2 being repaired).

    AFAIK the info in wikipedia is correct, ie:

    Udaloys (9):

    Kulakov - Northern Fleet
    Severomorsk - Northern Fleet
    Levchenko - Northern Fleet
    Kharlamov - Northern Fleet
    Chabanenko (modernisation) - Northern Fleet
    Tributs - Pacific Fleet
    Vinogradov - Pacific Fleet
    Panteleyev - Pacific Fleet
    Shaposhnikov (modernisation) - Pacific Fleet

    Sovs (4):

    Ushakov - Northern Fleet
    Burnyy (overhaul) - Pacific Fleet
    Bystryy - Pacific Fleet
    Nastoychivyy (overhaul) - Baltic Fleet

    The Sovs don't have a lot of life left in them, and modernisation would be a waste of coin, but they could continue to serve for another decade or so if needed.

    Was talking about Sovremenis primarily

    4 is alright but they are definitely on their way out, one is already a museum ship in Krondstat (Bespokoynyy)

    The Sovs were impressive looking ships with well balanced armament. Their propulsion was not great, but if they can solve those issues I am sure they would be useful for the next 20 years so that new bigger ships wont be so urgently required and they can take the time to get them right.

    I seem to remember someone mentioning that they had over 1,000 x 130mm rounds for sustained naval gunfire support roles, and of course their main missile armament is optimised to penetrate an AEGIS class cruisers defences...
