Sovremenny is armed with Moskit anti-ship missiles and Uragan surface-to-air missile systems. The destroyer has two double 533 mm torpedo tubes with four SET-65 torpedoes two AK-130/54 twin 130 mm mounts, four six-barrel 30 mm AK-630 artillery systems. The ship accommodates one Ka-27 anti-submarine helicopter.
