The Sloboda-class (Pr. 1141A) is a class of guided missiles cruisers of the Stasnovan Revolutionary Navy. The class was part of the 1976 sipbuilding programme of the Stasnovan Revolutionary Navy, and was designed as a larger, more powerful counterpart to the Otvazhnyy-class guided missile destroyers. Though its armament allows it to perform multiple roles - from area air defence to ASW missions -it was envisioned as a "carrier-killer" ship, and is thus armed with the largest (but not heaviest) anti-ship cruise missiles in Stasnovan service, the P-500 Bazalt (later upgrade to P-1000 Vulkan). 11 ships were completed out of the 20 planned, and 3 have been decommissioned. The class is being replaced by the new Pobeda-class cruisers.
