I've just found this Soviet 1939-41 era gunboat project which I don't recall ever being built. It is a nice looking heavily armed ship with 2x2 152mm, 1x2 76mm, 1x4, 2x2 37mm and 4x2 12,7mm AA guns
on a 3.500tons displacement!
Maybe our Russian speaking guys could translate or enlighten us?

Weirdly the project number collides with the Kashin I class ASW Guided Missile Destroyers!

Very exciting discovery! I like gunboats. Sure looks like it's got two twin-76.2mm mounts though, instead of just one.

This is the really annoying thing about trying to research Soviet Navy projects. There isn't much information on the 1950s Project 24 Battleships, but information on the 1930s Project 24 Destroyers? Basically, it does not exist on the internet :(

Would have been quite useful to the Red Fleet during WWII if any had been built.
