Beautifully detailed and unmatched in the industry, the
Graupner Admiral Panteleyev Udaloy class destroyer sets a new standard for our
Premium line of ships that will not disappoint you.
The Almost Ready to Run Udaloy includes a set of 550 size
motors, speed controllers, rudder servo, turning turrets, working radars and
working lights. This is a first for our premium line of ships that sets the bar
even higher from where it was before.
For reliability, performance, further telemetry and
model-specific function expansion we highly recommend a Graupner radio such as
the mc-16 which is fully pre-configured to control all the boat functions.
The Graupner Premium Line ships are carefully handcrafted
and assembled using CNC processing to replicate the model as originally as
possible. The hull is made from molded GRP complemented by the superstructure
and deck which are constructed from laser-cut ABS parts. Many of the small
items are made from metal, and almost everything is factory-assembled. The
hull, parts of the superstructure, the masts and fittings are spray painted
using semi-matt paints. Decals are already applied. With so many details and
scale fittings, the Premium Line ships all have an impressive scale appearance.
The Udaloy I class are a series of anti-submarine destroyers built
for the Soviet Navy, eight of which are currently in service
with the Russian Navy. The Russian designation is Project
1155 Fregat. Twelve ships were built between 1980 and 1991, while a thirteenth
ship built to a modified design as the Udaloy II class followed
in 1999. They complement the Sovremennyy-class destroyer in anti-aircraft warfare and anti-surface warfare operations.
The Project 1155 dates to the 1970s when it was concluded
that it was too costly to build large-displacement, multi-role combatants. The
concept of a specialized surface ship was developed by Soviet designers. Two
different types of warships were laid down which were designed by the Severnoye
Design Bureau: Project 956 destroyer and Project
1155 large anti-submarine ship. The Udaloy class
are generally considered the Soviet equivalent of the American Spruance-class destroyers. There are
variations in SAM and air search radar among units of the class. Based on
the Krivak class, the emphasis on anti-submarine
warfare (ASW) left these ships with limited anti-surface and anti-air
In 2015, the Russian Navy announced that five out of the
eight Project 1155 ships will be refurbished and upgraded as part of the Navy
modernization program by 2022. In addition to overhauling their
radio-electronic warfare and life support systems, they will receive modern
missile complexes to fire P-800
Oniks and Kalibr cruise missiles. The
ships are to have their service life extended by 30 years until sufficient
numbers of Admiral Gorshkov-class frigates are
commissioned. Upgrades will include replacing the Rastrub-B Silex missiles with
3S-24 angling launchers fitted with four 3S-34 containers using the 3M-24/SS-N-25
Switchbladeanti-ship missile, and two 3S-14-1155 universal VLS with 16 cells for Kalibr land
attack, anti-ship, and anti-submarine cruise missiles in place of one of
the AK-100 guns. Source wikipedia.

Really impressed with the detail on this ship - amazing! I sea trialed the ship and found that it had sufficient power and handled great, but it is top heavy and thus a little unstable. I made a short, 2.7 lbs. keel which I attach using magnets (thus no holes in the hull) and it really improved the stability.
I am using a 4 lb Powersonic 6V PS6100 battery placed just forward of the motors in conjunction with the keel system and it puts the ship right at waterline. Attached is a picture of the keel prototype I made.
