The Marshal Shaposhnikov destroyer of the Russian Pacific Navy fleet is currently docked and under repair. The large-anti submarine vessel will reportedly receive a cutting-edge upgrade of its formidable armament.

According to the Russian Navy, cited by local media reports, the Marshal Shaposhnikov is expected to receive a new 100-mm artillery mount, to replace its two AK-100 100-mm guns.

A source cited by Russian media said that the new weapon will be equipped with stealth technology.

The upgrade "will seriously reduce the visibility of the frigate, since its [gun] tower is angular in shape is good at scattering radar from enemy equipment", Izvestia newspaper said, citing the source.

In 2014, the Marshal Shaposhnikov was actively engaged in an anti-piracy mission in the Gulf of Aden, escorting a convoy of cargo and passenger vessels to safe waters in the Red Sea.
