Russia’s Pacific Fleet to receive Project 20380 corvette Sovershenny in June
The Amur Shipyard in Komsomolsk-on-Amur in Russia’s Far East is planning to deliver the first Project 20380 corvette Sovershenny to the Pacific Fleet in June 2017, Governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Vyacheslav Shport told TASS.

The construction of another three Project 20380 corvettes is on schedule, Shport added.

"The Amur Shipyard is building four corvettes for the Defense Ministry in strict compliance with the schedule. The first corvette is undergoing running trials at sea. At the end of the first half of the year, in June, we are planning to deliver it to the Defense Ministry or, to be more precise, to the Pacific Fleet," the governor said.

"The remaining corvettes are being built on schedule," he added. According to him, "several orders for ships of the type are being considered now." "However, the procedure is rigid there. The shipyard receives orders for new ships after it delivers the ordered ones," Shport said.

The Amur Shipyard laid down the Project 20380 corvette Sovershenny in 2006 and floated it out in 2015. The Pacific Fleet’s press office said in January 2017 that it was planning to receive the ship in the first quarter of the year. Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said following a visit to the shipyard in March 2017 that the remaining three corvettes would be delivered to the customer in 2018, 2019 and 2020, respectively.

The Project 20380 corvette is the littoral ship capable of fighting enemy surface ships and submarines and providing fire support during amphibious assault operations. Her total displacement is around 2,200 tons, speed 27 knots and endurance 4,000 nm. The mainstay of the ship’s weapons suite is the Uran (SS-N-25 Switchblade) antiship and Redut air defense missile systems. The corvette also carries guns, antisubmarine weapons and a helicopter.
