The Flat Screen was a test. There's something special about it, but I can't really recall what at the moment. I THINK, it was a phased array like US SPY-1 type of radar (although this one is rotating of course). I'm not sure, but I think that was the special thing about it, it can take a lot more targets than the regular Top Plate or Fregat radars. Kerch and Azov were both used for testing later in their lives. Kerch is still there, she's receiving occasional upgrades as she's sponsored by the city of Kerch. For a long time, a lot of things were regulated and provided by the city which sponsored the ship (and I think that actually still stands as of now).

Hi Guys,
Just like to draw your attention to the 2 newest books published recently in Russia.
One - dedicated to Kresta-I and Kresta-II Classes.
Another - to Kara Class.
Both books are vividly illustrated with huge number (several hundred) unique photos plus genuine building drawings. They are the most detailed books on the subject ever published in the world. Highly recommend! I obtained my own copies through the site: http://siriusm.homestead.com
Covers attached above.
Regards
Max

Has anyone purchased these books? I would like to have an indication of the quality and price.
Cheers GaryM

I found this photo amongst my old service photos.

I've also attached a chart on Soviet radars so that you can check out the fit in the photo

Hello Mike, Thanks for those, sorry it took so long to reply. I see you were also a recipient of the "Joint Services Recognition Journal" I don't suppose you happen to have any copies featuring the Russian Projects 159 Petya or Project 204 Poti?

Hi all:
Not a very active subforum, but I wondered if anyone knows a source for the Czech "JaPa" 8-sheet plans of the Kresta I missile cruiser "Sevastopol" c. 1969 in 1:100 (or 1:200) ?
I've seen a copy and they look pretty good. Maybe Dave Wooley knows?
Best,
Paul

Hi,

Any idea about the deck colour (or colours) of the Kerch (713), Project 1134B Kara Berkut Missile Cruiser of the Russian Navy, in her present version?
I couldn't find a good aerial colour photo, and I suspect that some decks are painted with a different colour (perhaps a dark grey colour), rather than the standard Russian "red brick" colour...

A photo of this ship:

What do you think?


Thanks.

Ayala Botto

Is 2008 present enough? Navsource's photos show red. http://navsource.narod.ru/photos/02/206/index.html

Hi Timmy,

And all decks painted with the standard Russian "brick colour"

It seems that none of this ships is in used today. All of them has been scrap.....


Thanks

What is with Kerch now? Will she be back in service?

What is with Ochakov? She was raised again. But I cannot imagine that she will be ever back in service.

Hi,

Conflicting reports regarding Kerch status after the fire that broke out on November 2014 in Sevastopol.
Depending on the sources the ship will be scrapped or repaired and returned back to active service.


Thanks
Regards,
Ayala Botto

Looking at Kresta I class (Pr 1134) Side Globes ECM:

It appears to me that as built, all four domes were arranged in a vertical column. And it appears that when Vice Admiral Drozd was modified with the ADMG-630 ciws, the lowest dome was moved aft and higher than it was originally.

Can anyone confirm or correct me?

Thanks,
Rick

Has anyone had any success in constructing either the Scoop Pair or Peel Group radar arrays in 1/700?

For the Scoop Pair, I am considering use of two SPS-10 arrays, one above and one below.
Thanks!

Rick, You are correct about the ECM globes on Adm Drozd, the lower dome was moved several times over a number of years, but was moved back to its original position each time.
Adm Zozulya also had her lower globe moved.
