Description

Commemorative Coin dedicated to "Polskie okręty" (Polish Ships), Brilliant Uncirculated.
ORP Warszawa (formerly the Soviet Smelyi) was a large guided missile destroyer of the Polish Navy, one of the last ships of the modified Kashin class. She was built in the 61st Communard's Shipyard in Mykolaiv, Soviet Union, for the Soviet Navy. The ship was among the largest destroyers of the time; with 4950 tonnes of displacement she had similar displacement to many World War II cruisers. The flexible design allowed the ships of her class to serve as multi-purpose vessels rather than standard guided missile destroyers. Among the capabilities of the class were anti-surface and anti-submarine missions, convoy escort, long-range bombardment and a variety of other roles. The ship's armament was almost fully automated and was one of the first such ships in the Eastern Bloc.
