The Modified Kashin class were six ships built and modified based on the Kashin class destroyer for the Soviet Navy between 1973 to 1980. Seven more ships were built after that for the Indian Navy. The Soviet designation for the Mod Kashin is Project 61MP.

Added Equipment[edit]

The main addition to the selected ships were four SS-N-2C anti-ship missile launchers. A pair of AK-630 30mm gatling guns were installed on the sides of the ship, along with a Bass Tilt fire control radar warranting the removal of two RBU-1000 rocket launchers. The landing pad mounted on the stern of the normal Kashin classes were replaced with a helicopter platform. The last change made to the Kashins was an increased forward superstructure on two decks.[1]
