This is the officially released document used by the DIA, standing for the "Defense Intelligence Agency". The content of this document presents the formal unclassified guide to the surface vessels that served there in the Soviet Navy fleet; the most part of the surface ship classes operated by the Soviet Navy has been covered. The publication of the technical information contained in the document at the unclassified level was actually believed to enhance its utility as such approach would allow to ensure the dissemination of the content to the wide audience. The publication has been prepared on the basis of numerous very valuable contributions that were provided by the world recognized experts in the field. The book is arranged in twelve major chapters by the vessel types. The opening chapter is addressing the aircraft carriers, followed by the chapters dedicated to the patrol combatants, amphibious warfare vessels, principal surface combatants and roadstead crafts. The remainder of the publication covers the mine warfare crafts, coastal patrol-river crafts, material support vessels, underway replenishment vessels and fleet support ships. The last chapter of this volume is providing the necessary information relating to the vessels that belong to the types not covered within the eleven other chapters.
