The cover to a 1981 reprint of a 1977 thriller novel, I'm not sufficiently familiar with Soviet era hardware to determine if the ship on the cover is a real design or freelanced.

A Frenzy of Merchantmen

Thanks for the ID, I think the artist (Paul Wright) used a different bridge structure, which might have been what threw me off.

I've just added to my own version of the Fictional Warships list an interesting set of fictional Chinese warships from the (very) early 1990s including the authors guess at what the Type 052 would be like and Type 051 'Luda' class destroyers given a SAM Kotlin style conversion with aft mounted missiles, either copies of the French Masurca or Chinese HQ-61s.

The specific post is linked below

From the front cover of 2003 Omnibus release of Hammond Innes 1988 novel Medusa paired with his 1960 novel The Doomed Oasis. Medusa features a Leander Class Frigate (As built with 2 x 4.5 inch guns forward.), however the cover of this release seems to be based on something else.

Medusa/The Doomed Oasis
