Russia shows off inexpensive little ship. Less than half the size of US allegory, but its missiles go THREE times as far and FOUR times as fast.

Since the US Navy gave up all of its Oliver Hazard Perry class Frigates, the closest thing the US has to this Russian ship is its Arleigh Burke class guided missile destroyers.


An Arleigh Burke weights in at up to nearly 10,100 tons. These Rooskie ships come in at 4,000 tons.

The Arleigh Burke sports the Block III TLAM-D Tomahawk with a speed of 890 km/h and a maximum range of 1,300 km

This Rooskie ship is packing the 3m-54 Klub with a speed of 3,600 km/h and a range of 4000km
