The ship was originally armed with four 127mm main-caliber guns in two towers, four 40mm Bofors and a four-tube torpedo tube. In 1978, one of the towers of the main caliber was dismantled and the ship received launchers for 8 anti-aircraft missiles Sea Sparrow and 8 anti-ship Harpoon. Related to these missiles is the incident that occurred during the exercises on September 26, 1982, when one of the "Harpoons"spontaneously started. The rocket flew 34 kilometers, damaging several power lines until it hit a small grove in the suburban village, where it exploded. At the same time, 4 summer houses were destroyed and about 130 were damaged. Fortunately, there were no casualties. To reassure the public, the result of a hasty investigation was indicted by a technician servicing the missiles. However, a thorough examination concluded that the cause of the unauthorized start-up was a defect in the control system. As a result, the missile manufacturer, McDonnell Douglas, has paid considerable compensation.
