History & Background
Leningrad class Destroyers serve with the Kostov Confederate Navy of the Kostov Confederate Republic, a member state of the Solomani Confederation. 45 examples of the Leningrad class are currently in service. Leningrads have been used to deploy marine specialist teams for covert demolitions, assassinations and infiltration, rescues, and other unusual operations. They are occasionally called upon for Confederation service.
The crews of Leningrad class vessels engage in good-natured though fierce rivalry with their counterparts aboard Krivak class Frigates. Krivak crews will endlessly boast of how much better, or larger, some aspect of their ship is. Leningradski take it in their stride: it is plain to see that their big destroyers are far superior.
