Thankyou for sharing Colin. I presume they are part of the Black Sea fleet.

Hi Colin    Russian warships   do look impressive.  yet like much of the Russian Navy  the Kulakov  is an  elderly warship  ,a  left over from Soviet times   having entered service in  1982 .    I recall going aboard the Kulakov In 2013 and  I noticed how  much of the weapons fit  was dated even by Russian standards . Non the less  they  remain a potent force . thanks for the link .
