Known in Nato circles as 'Riga' class general purpose frigates. I believe 47 were built, however by mid 80's many were in reserve. 1000 tons displacement armed principally with 3 x 3.9 inch in single open turrets and light ASW weapons. Twin steam turbines, quite quick at 30kts.
the large fire control director on top of the bridge was called 'Wasp Head' for recognition purposes. for once quite an accurate description.

Ahoy Nick, yes although I think both me and DDR are on the same song sheet, albeit differing hymn versions !

happy new year.
