Russia's Leader destroyer vessel of Project 23560 will be "the most seriously armed ship" in the world.
The technical specifications of the vessel will let her surpass all existing analogs.
In particular, the destroyer can be armed with a modified version of the S-500 Prometey (Prometheus) anti-aircraft missile system that will protect the ship from long-range missiles. The vessel can also be armed with Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile complex, Poliment-Redut anti-aircraft system and Vityaz S-350 missile system that will be enhanced for naval purposes.
Leader destroyers will also be equipped with about 200 vertical cold start launchers.
In the future, the ships will be armed with Caliber cruise missiles, Zircon hypersonic missiles and a modified version of the air-missile complex Kinzhal.
The construction of the ship is to begin after 2020.
Both Russia and Ukraine have been increasing their military presence on the border between the two countries lately. Russia warned Ukraine against any military scenarios
