Yeah I have a couple editions of the Guide to the Soviet Navy, three of the Guides to the US Navy, and the 1989 edition of World Naval Weapons Systems. The only problem I've run into is that there never enough picture, but, I suppose that's because they are probably hard to come by for some things and because it makes the book thicker and thus more expensive to publish. Oh well.

There are many more pictures in the 1997 and 2006 (or thereabouts) editions, for obvious fall-of-the-curtain reasons.

I have a perhaps somewhat silly ... (or irrelevent) ... (or unworkable even) ... question...

Does anybody know of a link, or a place, or a person here, where or who knows which Soviet/Russian electronics systems (radar, directors, etc) are the equivelent of NATO/USN/RN systems? Basically for the 90's - Now.

I ask because as part of my fictional AU nation, I sometimes use Russian ships to represent what I may have if I like the way they look. I primarily use RN or USN ships, but sometimes do use the odd Russian type. However, in order to give a more cohesive/coherent look, I'd like to swap out the Russian weapons systems and their attendent electronics for their USN/RN equivelent (search radar for search radar, SAM director for SAM director... that sort of thing.) And while I am pretty good at tactics and organization (having been studying naval history for about 45 years now) I really do kinda suck at working on the little things like what electronic bit does what. I know, pretty embarrasing for an amateur naval historian. I'll do penance later. ;) In the meantime, is there such as thing as a "Russian radar "X" is used for the same/similar function as USN radar "Y" chart? Or am I just wishing for what ain't?

No such thing exists, because the Soviets didn't design systems to exactly fulfill the mission and capabilities of US systems (or vice versa).

Ah well. It was worth a shot. It seems I'll have to return to the tried-n-true 'best guess' or 'WAG' methods.

Hi there, I have a question for the OP. Will you be adding Imperial Russian equipment as well, or only the current equipment used? Could you perhaps point me towards a parts sheet with IR parts? I need the duel 450mm torpedo tubes, maxim guns and perhaps a Russian version of the 4'' gun if there is such a thing.

Thanks.

PS: Its intended for a practice drawing I'm doing of the Novik (1911)

Im creating a completely revisited russian/soviet Partsheet that has all equipment remodelled together with radard, ECM and assorted. thats why I haven't drawn that much ships lately ;)

Novik is allready drawn. the part sheet Whyme points out is largely obsolete and shouldn't be used

Well that settles that for me. ~tosses parts sheet from inventory~. Thanks for the heads-up!
