Ship project history: These were project 1134 redesigned for ASW service while under construction. The first three were to have been further project 1134; the others were to have carried a shorter-range anti-ship missile battery (eight P-50). The shorter-range missile was replaced by an ASW missile, probably adapted from the anti-ship weapon, and a new bow sonar was fitted (the bow was more sharply raked to accommodate it). The surface-to-air missile was the more capable Shtorm, requiring a better 3-D radar (Grom) than the combination of project 1134. Shtorm, the only Soviet naval SAM with no land equivalent, had a substantial anti-ship capability, and would have been welcome in a ship otherwise restricted to ASW ordnance. These ships are designated BPK, large ASW ships.

Modernizations: 1972, all: - 2 x 2 Shtorm SAM; + 2 x 2 M-11 Shtorm-M SAM (48 V-611M)

1970s, all: + Don radar

1980, almost all: - 2 x 2 Shtorm-M SAM; + 2 x 2 Shtorm-N SAM (48 V-611N)

1982, Kronshtadt: - MG-332 Titan sonar; + MG-332T Titan-T sonar

1980s, some ships: + MG-329 Bronza sonar

1985, Admiral Makarov; 1986, Admiral Isachenkov, Admiral Oktyabrskiy; 1990, Admiral Isakov: - 2 x 4 URPK-3 Metel' ASuM, Grom-M radar (fwd); + 2 x 4 URK-5 Rastrub-B SSM/ASuM (8 85RU), Grom-R radar(fwd)

1980s, Admiral Makarov, Vasiliy Chapaev: + Kolos-K75 non-acoustic submarine detecting suite

Naval service: No significant events.
