Unfortuanetly lots of distractions has pushed me to dely my entry into the last minutes and even Still, my job and dropbox meltdowns has prevented me to properly indulge you with huge walls of text that Im sure everyone of you would have read. These are essentially teasers from my current major AU, which is Still on the progress of defining itself, and I had some other ideas early on which I Felt unable to pursue due my 2nd AU demaning so much of my attention and inspiration.
Designed as traditional ligth cruisers for Destroyer leaders and independent Sea Denial operation, the 11,000 ton standard displacement Pr.6635B class was designed at follow on to the wartime Pr.6635 class and incorporated lots of lessons learned from the WWII experience. They were armed with 12 152mm/56 guns main battery and 12 100mm/56 DP secondaries and with two sets of torpedoes and complimentary light AA. Two units were build in this configuration, Vladivostok and Lashnyy
As the arms technology progressed in the first decade of the Cold war, the 6635Bs were marked as potential missile-carriers for taskforce AA escorts and the two later units, Petrosplavosk and Umurchi were fitted with the PV-2 SAM system
In the later career the Vladivostok and Lashnyy were mofidied as Command cruisers with features of Helicopter carriers when large box hangar and raised helicopter deck for the V-8 Helicopters and antennaes for enchanged communications set
Coming next: L/M Moskva, some research ships, pr.26bis, Pr.1144 remakes and Project 1143 complete redux.
