The Kresta II Class, Soviet Designation Project 1134A, Berkut A (Golden Eagle) were Soviet guided missile cruisers of the Cold War. The ships entered service in the late 1960s and were rapidly decommissioned after the end of the Cold War
These ships were an Anti-Submarine derivative of the Kresta I class cruiser. These ships had a new anti-submarine missile (SS-N-14), new Surface to Air Missiles (SA-N-3) and advanced sonar. All ships were built by Zhdanov yard, Leningrad.
Conway's states that the first three ships were to have been armed with the SS-N-9 anti ship missile but Soviet naval doctrine changed with greater emphasis on anti-submarine warfare. The surface to air missiles comprised more advanced SA-N-3 missiles with two twin launchers. New 3D search radar and new fire control radars were also fitted. 4 30mm CIWS guns were also fitted for improved anti-missile defence. A more advanced sonar led to the bow being more sharply raked. The machinery suite comprised two TV-12 steam turbines with high pressure boilers, identical to the Kresta I class.
