P-1 Strela Shchuka-A
SS-N-1 Scrubber

The SS-N-1 Scrubber [in British usage, a "scrubber" is young lady of dubious integrity] was a cruise missile with a nuclear warhead. With the Russian service designation P-1 [also sometimes referred to as the Strela or Shchuka-A], it was deployed on the Kildin-class and Kanin-class destroyers [Soviet designation Large Rocket Ships]. Between 1966 and 1977 these ships were modernized and redesignated Large Anti-Submarine Ship (Bol'shoy Protivolodochny Korabl' BPK) in the face of the obsolescence of the SS-N-1 Scrubber.
