This is a generic info on the shp someone with better Russian language skills could make a better translation!

After the design of the first Kashin class ASW Guided Missile Destroyer, the Soviet Navy started to design a similar but larger vessel in the cruise size but with the same purpose. Design work completed in 1958 to for a cruiser sized vessel, which have standard 5,900 tons , 6,650 tons of normal , full 7,400 tons of displacement, speed of 40knots and the Project 58, the Kynda class cruiser hull as a base with a purpose to hunt the modern US Nuclear Submarines. Design work stopped in 1959-60 when the navy decided to mass produce the Kashins instead of this design.

Overview of this design:
Dimensions: 160x16x6m
Displacement: 7.400tons
Engine Power: 90.000shp 2 shafts
Maximum Speed: 74km/h (40knots)
Range: 7400km on 44km/h (4000nm on 24knots)
Endurance: 15-20 days
Armaments:
1x6 SUW-N-1 Anti Submarine Missile Launcher
2x2 SA-N-1 Goa Long Range SAM Launchers
2x2 76mm AK-726 Twin Gun Turrets
2x5 533mm Torpedo Tubes
2x12 RBU-6000 ASW Launchers

There must be some element of fiction to this -- SS-N-16 was only available in the 1980s, and contrary to the large launcher shown here was intended for launch from torpedo tubes.

The ship performance is also unlikely; the similar-sized Krestas needed 100,000 shp to achieve only 35 knots.

They are to have equipped with Steam Turbines despite the kashins had Gas Turbines.
As for the missile launcher, it is hard to decipt which GRAU designation equvivalent to which NATO designation!

It states an interesting ASW weapon which I never found elsewhere the RBU-24000, so that sextuple rocket launcher should be it, but on the site it designated 82-R with the codename Vikhr or Whirlwind
Russian wiki:

But you are right it should be the SUW-N-1, I fix it right away

The ship and the drawing is descriped in the A.N. Sokolov's book of various soviet naval never-wheres. In that book there is Sokolov's own drawing which is AFAIK just his own impression of what that project would had looked alike. This image is from the Atrinaflot site which at some point did work together with Sokolov to incorporate some of the soviet never-where warship projects from that same book in the Atrinaflot site and someone (I assume its the site's holders) drew a slightly more accurate and detailed illustrations of the concept.

However I don't know how far did the soviets actually pursue this design, was it just conceptual studies or did they actually make detailed designplans for it?
