Admiral Panteleyev makes up part of the nine-strong Udaloy-class series of guided-missile destroyers serving the modern Russian Navy fleet. The group was to be fifteen-strong but only thirteen of the lot were completed with two cancelled. Nine remain in active service today (2020).

The class is recognized as frigates in the Russian Navy inventory and serves the critical role of Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), being outfitted with various counters and solutions to the very real threat on the high seas. Their design is from the late-Cold War period (1947-1991) with Admiral Panteleyev seeing her keel laid down on May 24th, 1987. She was launched in 1988 but not commissioned until May 1st, 1992 - at which point the Soviet Union had fallen and the Russian Navy was reborn. Modernization has kept the warship viable for today's battlefield.

As operated, Panteleyev has a displacement of 6,100 tons under standard load and 7,775 tons under full load. Overall length is 535 feet with a beam of 62 feet, and a draught of 26 feet. Power is through a COGAG (COmbined Gas-And-Gas) arrangement involving 4 x Gas turbines developing 120,000 horsepower, giving the warship a top speed of 35 knots with a range out to 10,500 nautical miles (when cruising at 14 knots).

Aboard is a crew of 300 personnel. The ship also carries a limited air wing to support up to 2 x Kamov Ka-27 "Helix" ASW helicopters - these vehicles adding considerable range and flexibility to Panteleyev. A full-service hangar and helipad are built into the ship's design and located at the stern.

Armament is a mix of projectile- and missile-based solutions. 2 x 100mm turreted deck guns are featured alongside 4 x AK-630 Close-In Weapon Systems (CIWSs). 2 x 4 SS-N-14 anti-submarine missiles are installed as are 8 x Vertical launchers supporting the SA-N-9 Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) weapon. Beyond this are 8 x 553mm (21.8") torpedo tubes arranged in twin quadruple launchers and 2 x RBU-6000 Anti-Submarine ROCket (ASROC) launchers.

The profile of the ship sees the twin single-gunned turrets arranged in stepped fashion over the forecastle. The quadruple launchers are set just ahead of the bridge superstructure's face. The bridge section mounts all manner of sensor, tracking, and communication equipment. Skeletal pyramidal masts are showcased aft of the bridge section while the low-profile smoke funnels are seated inline near midships. The helipad and hangar facilities take up the stern.

Admiral Panteleyev currently serves with the Pacific Ocean Fleet of the Russian Navy and has seen service in anti-piracy operations off of the coast of Somalia. In 2012, she was a participant of RIMPAC (RIM of the PACific) exercises involving players from all over the world. Despite her Cold War roots, she remains a potent vessel and critical to Russian naval strength for the foreseeable future - operating in concert with Sovremennyy-class destroyers in the air-defense and anti-surface/anti-submarine roles.
