Ship project history: This RKR is an evolved version of a design drawn in the early 1960s, incorporating the new supersonic cruise missile (Bazalt). It would originally have resembled a stretched Project 1134 of about 12,000t, with Shtorm defensive missiles fore and aft and a hangar aft and with a secondary battery of Osa SAM. As in Project 11134, the missile tubes would have elevated. Later fixed tubes were substituted. The Bazalt programme stalled about 1962, and presumably this design was then put aside. When the RKRs were revived in the late 1960s, this design returned its original main battery but was provided with the new surface-to-air Fort system aft. Presumably topweight precluded provision of an additional Volna radar forward. Since the single director covers only a 180° arc, these ships haw a blind arc forward.

    Defensive torpedo tubes are behind shutters near the stern.

    Each uptake contains two boost turbine uptakes, one gas turbine uptake, and two gas turbine generator uptakes.

    Although these ships probably lack flagship computer facilities, they are used in peacetime as flagships (eg, visiting foreign ports), in which capacity they embark up to 27 more officers and 24 more enlisted men. The TTZ for this class was approved in 1971, and the technical proiect (design) in August 1974.

    Later ship would be built under modified Project 11641 (9500/11530t, 192.0x20.8x6.28m, machinery without utilizing steam turbines (130000hp), armament included 8 x 2 Vulkan SSM (16 P-1000), 8 x 1 Fort SAM (64 V-500R), 5 x (8 Kortik SAM + 2 x 6 - 30/54) Kortik CIWS, 2 x 5 - 533 Vodopad-NK ASuM (10 83R, 84R), 1 x 2 - 130/70 AK-130, 2 x 12 RBU-6000 ASWRL, 1 Ka-27Ts helicopter, electronics would be consisted of MR-800 Flag-M radar suite (MR-650 Podberiozovik, MR-750 Fregat-MA radars), Pozitiv, Argon-1164, 3R41 Volna, MR-184 Lev-218, 2x MR-212/201 Vaygach-U radars, MGK-335 Platina sonar, Kantata, MRP-52 Koltso ECM suites, 12x PK-10 Smely, 2x PK-2M decoy RLs, Lesorub-1164 CCS). Two ships were ordered, No 2012 Rossiya (renamed Oktyabrskaya Revoliutsiya 30/12/1987) 11/8/1987 and No 2013 Admiral Flota Sovetskogo Soyuza Gorshkov 1/11/1988, but both were cancelled 4/10/1990.

    Incomplete Admiral Flota Lobov was transferred to Ukraine 17/12/1993. As in 2016, really abandoned incomplete ship rusts at fitting-out pier.
