Most modern Russian destroyers in service are 24 Orphey class, laid down 1915, serving in Northern Fleet. Oldest destroyers are 24 Becharskiy Class, laid down 1904, serving in Baltic and Black Sea Feets. Government of Russian Federation are considering laying down new class of Destroyers, named after cities in Russian Federation. Tashkent class will begin standardization of Russian destroyer armament on 130mm main gun.
