KONI class gallery

Koni class was an attempt to equip friendly USSR Navies with a limited anti submarine capacity ship at a reduced price, but unfortunately, the attempt did not have the expected success.
The Soviet Delfin frigate was actually a training ship for foreign crews. In 1990 it was sold to the Bulgarian Navy, which continues to use her under the name of Smeli.
Naval Forces from Algeria, Bulgaria, Cuba, East Germany, Libya, Egypt and Yugoslavia operated with the Koni class. They were classified as ASW frigates, but their armament for this role was very limited.
