Slava class cruiser
Around 1976 the Slava class cruisers succeeded the Kara class cruisers. These warships are easily reconocible by their sixteen surface to surface missile containers flanking the bridge superestructures. Only three Slava class cruisers had been finished when the Soviet Union fell.

The Slava class was succeeded by the Kirov class of atomic propulsion cruisers.

Slava class: Chervona Ukrayina, Fleet Admiral Lobov, Slava
