70320 - Frigate Yaroslav Murdyi, 2009, 1/700
The program started in 1986 and seven ships were originally planned. After the collapse of the Soviet Union the project was frozen and only one ship, the Neustrashimy (Неустрашимый - "Fearless"), was in active service with the Russian Baltic Fleet by the mid 1990s. On February 24, 2009 the second ship in the class, the Yaroslav Mudry, left the Yantar shipyard in Russia's Kaliningrad for its first sea-trials. As of 2010, both the Neustrashimyy and the Yaroslav Mudryy are operational with the Baltic Fleet.
