Admiral Tributs continues to serve the modern Russian Navy despite its origins in the latter Cold War years.

Admiral Tributs forms up part of the nine-strong Udaloy I-class of destroyers formerly serving the Soviet Navy during the Cold War (1947-1991) and now arranged as part of the modern Russian Navy. She was laid down on April 19th, 1980 and launched on March 26, 1983. Formally commissioned on December 30th, 1985, Admiral Tributs currently serves with the Russian Pacific Fleet. She is named after Vladimir Filippovich Tributs (1900-1977), a former admiral in the Soviet Navy.

The Udaloy I-class was constructed as anti-submarine destroyers with fifteen ships originally planned for the group. Thirteen were ultimately completed while nine remain in active service as of January 2017. Admiral Tributs showcases a standard displacement of 6,200 tons with a full load displacement of 7,900 tons and her dimensions include a length of 535 feet, a beam of 63 feet and a draught of 20 feet. The crew complement numbers 300 men. Over stern is a helipad supporting up to 2 x Kamov Ka-27 "Helix" navy helicopters offering Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Anti-Ship (AS) services as well as over-the-horizon reconnaissance capabilities. A full-service hangar is also built into the Tribut's design.

The profile of the Admiral Tributs is largely conventional as 1980s warship design goes. The forecastle is dominated by a pair of turreted deck guns. The bridge superstructure is aft of these units and a double-mast arrangement is featured near midships. The smoke funnels are paired (side-by-side arrangement) but the sets are spaced over midships with the aft mast in between. Over the stern is the aforementioned helicopter hangar and flight deck.

The ship utilizes a "COmbined Gas And Gas" (COGAG) engine arrangement for a strong balance of fuel efficiency and output power for various cruising / dashing actions. This arrangement involves four gas turbines delivering 120,000 horsepower to two shafts under stern. This provides the vessel with a range out to 10,500 nautical miles when cruising at 14 knots. Maximum speed under ideal conditions is 35 knots.

The armament suite of Tributs is led by missile weaponry made up of 2 x 4 84R/URPK-4 "Metel-U" anti-submarine missile launchers and 8 x vertical launchers supporting the 3K95 "Kinzhal' Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM). The conventional portion of the suite is 2 x 100mm turreted cannons (over the forecastle), 4 x 30mm AK-630 Close-In-Weapon Systems (CIWSs), 2 x Altair CADS-N-1 "Kashtan" CIWSs and 2 x RBU-6000 Anti-Submarine ROCket (ASROC) launchers. The vessel is also equipped with 2 x 4 533mm torpedo tubes supporting the Type 53 series torpedo family.

The warship is aided through various onboard systems including the MR-360 "Pdkat" / "Cross Sword" fire control system and "Garpun-BAL" missile targeting unit. Sonar includes the "Horse Tail" LF VDS and "Horse Jaw" bow-mounted LF sonar units. Radar fits include the MR-760MA "Fregat-MA" / "Top Plate" 3D air search radar and MR-320M "Topaz-V" "Strut Pair" air/surface search radar. A pair of PK-2 systems offer decoy capabilities against incoming homing/tracking threats.

The Admiral Tributs has served in both the Soviet and Russian navies. Most recently, it joined other warships in Philippine waters during January of2017 as part of a Russian goodwill stop - perhaps indicating a future naval partnership in the disputed South China Sea between the two regional powers.
