Development Project 1123 "Condor" was launched in 1960. The first cruiser of the project - "Moscow" - entered service in 1967 and was effective enough for TPS due to the presence of 14 anti-submarine helicopters and powerful sonar. The second cruiser - "Leningrad" - joined the Navy two years later. Throughout his service ships held in the Black Sea Fleet, operating usually in the Mediterranean Sea.

Construction of the third cruiser project 1123 was repealed in 1968 before the bookmark. Nevertheless, the "Condor" played an important role in the development of domestic aircraft carriers.
