Admiral Chabanenko is an Udaloy II-class anti-submarine destroyer of the Russian Navy. The destroyer was laid down in 1989, during the Soviet period, and was finished by Russia 10 years later, after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. In 1999 she deployed with the Northern Fleet. The Admiral Chabanenko is the sole vessel of the Project 1155.1 design, a modified version of the Project 1155 design, also called Udaloy class. The design is also known as the Udaloy II class. The ship includes updated weapon systems like the SS-N-22 anti-ship missile and the “Zvezda” M-2 series sonar system. She is named after Admiral Andrei Chabanenko, commander of the Northern Fleet between 1952 and 1962.
In 2008 the Admiral Chabanenko became the first Russian warship to sail through the Panama Canal since World War II, while participating in joint exercises with the Venezuelan Navy. In late 2009 she and the Black Sea Fleet’s rescue tug Shakhterdeployed off the Horn of Africa, as part of the anti-piracy measures off the Somalian coast. Both vessels then sailed to Norfolk Naval Base to participate in FRUKUS 2011, a series of joint exercises between the Russian, French, British and US navies, held between 23 and 30 June 2011.
In December 2013 Admiral Chabanenko docked at the 35th ship repair plant in Murmansk to undergo the overhaul of her engines. The repairs were expanded in August 2017 into a more thorough overhaul and refit of the ship, expected to be completed in December 2019.
