Having gotten used to the little grey painted Soviet AGI trailing Naval operations while I was at sea, I am keen to build a working model of one of these Cold War pests, in particular GIDROFON.

Can anyone help with plans or photographs of this class or particular ship? :wave_1:

I have found some useful pictures of the OKEAN AGI at http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/ ... -class.htm

It would be interesting to know if this class had sonar and torpedo tubes as shown in this AGI photographed at St. Petersburg:

Could use help with detail esp. upper deck layout, intercept equipment, hull numbers etc.

Have made some very useful progress on Google by using individual ship names rather than class amongst other things. Have found some very interesting accounts of TF77 in the Tonkin Gulf dealing with the AGIs. :woo_hoo:

Still need any info I can get of the ship in the 1967-70 time frame particularly. There must be some ex-Soviet sailors out there who can help with some shots of the upper deck. One question in particular is - did Soviet AGI's fly the Soviet Navy, USSR national or no flag???

I add a shot of GIDROFON as I remember her - any further contributions gratefully accepted. Apologies for not acknowledging the source site but can do so if required.

Hey guys - could use some comment - looks like I am talking to myself!!!! Would love to hear from someone - even if to ask questions which we need to find answers for - are there no ex-GIDROFON sailors or TF77 sailors reading this??

Cheers

I applaud your interest in this class and ships used for this purpose. I don't have anything to add to the thread as of yet, but do think these ships were lurking just out of the frame of our Cold War attention, and thus deserve some modeling focus.
