Krivak I Class Guided Missile Frigate
Merc: 2000, Dark Conspiracy
- Thanks to 'Werewolf'
The first Russian ship with Gas Turbines instead of a diesel engine, this was at one time, the fastest frigate afloat, as it was designed to fight not only aircraft and surface vessels, but submarines as well. In the 70's the classification was changed from general purpose frigate to ASW. As there is no helo capability on the Krivak, speed is its best advantage.
Merc: 2000: When the USSR fell, Russia needed money immediately. The easiest method was to sell off its arms, and the Krivak went on the selling block. China bought several to back up their push from a brown water navy to a blue water navy. During the Conquest of Lebanon, the IDF sank 4 Krivak I's, and captured 4 in port.
Twilight: 2000: USSR kept on to their Krivak I's, and all are considered Soviet. Only Soviets and Chinese vessels have Nuc Weapons.
