Ship project history: Original ship, in some kind successor of the first Ericsson`s Monitor. She had low-freeboard armoured hull completely deprived of superstructures on which the massive rotating turret with two 102mm guns was raised. The conning tower was consolidated on a turret roof and rotated together with it, that became one of the basic lacks of the design. On full speed ship created big stern wave and badly answered the helm. Though Aktivny intended for actions on Pripyat and upper part of Dnepr, in connection with circumstances complication in the Far East she was in the taken apart kind transported to Khabarovsk where she was completed.

Ship protection: Citadel and turret with CT had light splinterproof (mostly 30mm) armour.

Modernizations: 1944: + 1 x 1 - 37/63 70K, 3 x 1 - 12.7/79.

Naval service: Kenga 11/6/1953 was stricken and transferred to the Amur shipping company, scrapped in 1957.
