    On the next ship they should lengthen the UKSK installation on the foredeck a little bit so that they could fit a Pantsir-M between the Uran launchers.

    The UKSK launchers are where they are because of the 100mm gun & ammo area that was there before.
    They might be able to put a Pantsir-M instead of the 2nd 100mm gun, instead of one of the Tor/Kinzhal installations but I think I'd rather see modernised Tor with the new missiles in modern grid VLS.

    Ideally they'd do both modernised Tor & rework the area where the Ak-630s are like on the Udaloy II Admiral Chabanenko with Pantsir-M instead of Kashtan

    They say now Levchenko is going to be modernized in the same way as the Shaposhnikov:

    They are beautifully proportioned ships. Does anyone have any idea why they use a much darker shade of grey then the rest of the fleet? Also kinda smoky. I wonder if from the turbines or gensets
