Marshal Timoshenko was a Project 1134A Berkut A class cruiser of the Soviet Navy. Another weakness of the old HAI III was its inability to 'see through' water layers with different temperatures. The Parchims were also provided with capable anti-submarine warfare weapons. The design proved to be top-heavy and was soon succeeded by the larger Kresta I class, but the Kyndas stayed in service until the fall of the Soviet Union. Reloading is automatic, with individual rounds being fed into the launcher by the 60UP loading system from a below deck magazine. It is similar in principle to the Royal Navy Hedgehog system used during the Second World War. 1 History 2 Notable Falchion-class Frigates 3 Dimensions 4 Sources The Falchion is considered a new class, having only been first laid down in 261.M41. The ships were designed for coastal anti-submarine warfare. The cruiser was relegated to reserve in 1992 and decommissioned in 1993. A major evolution over the old HAI III design was the new hydro-acoustic system. After German re-unification the former East German ships were sold to the TNI-AL (Indonesian Navy) in 1993. A solution is the use of a 'dipping sonar', which in a way is nothing more than a small sonar attached to a long cable.

Indonesian Parchims has completed a major refit to fulfill Indonesian navy needs. Range was between 350 m and 6000 m, and the charges could reach 500 m deep. However, the frigates are largely coastal defense vessels ill-suited to bluewater operations. The ships were designed for coastal anti-submarine warfare. You could also do it yourself at any point in time. The electronic defense suite was very basic, and consisted of an IFF (Identification Friend or Foe) receiver and transmitter, and an 'ELOKA' multiband passive RWR antenna slaved to a double 16-cell chaff dispenser.
