Soviet Navy Moskva/Slava Class Model Ships.
The Slava class was initially
designated BLACKCOM 1 (Black Sea Combatant 1) and then designated the Krasina
for a short period until Slava was observed at sea. The SS-N-12 launchers are fixed facing forward at around 8° elevation
with no reloads available. As there was nothing revolutionary about the design of the class western observers felt they
were created as a hedge against the failure of the more radical Kirov class. The helicopter hangar deck is located
1/2 deck below the landing pad with a ramp connecting the two.
Today three ships serve in the Russian Navy and one
uncompleted vessel is owned by Ukraine.
No replacements for the class are yet planned and the three vessels in the Russian Navy will
continue to be in service for some years to come.
