The Admiral Makarov is designed for anti-ship, anti-submarine and air defence missions. Weighing over 3,800 tonnes the vessel is armed with an eight-cell launcher for Kalibr and Klub anti-ship and surface-to-surface missiles as well as a Shtil vertical-launch air defence missile system. It has a 100-mm main gun, two Kashtan guns, two torpedo tubes, an anti-submarine rocket system and can carry either a Ka-28 or Ka-31 helicopter.
