The shipyard’s administration demonstrated corvette manufacturing facilities and showed the export version of the Project 20382 Tigr class corvette in conjunction with the United Shipbuilding Corporation and the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau and under the aegis of Rosoboronexport.

"The sides discussed the prospects of the participation of the Northern Shipyard in the construction of ships at Brazilian manufacturing facilities. Shipyard CEO Igor Ponomaryov suggested considering the construction of one or two ships at the Russian shipyard and their further serial production in Brazil," the press office said.

The delegation demonstrated interest in enhancing the Project 20382 corvette’s performance and integrating foreign-made weapons into it. The Project 20382 corvette is an export version of the baseline Project 20380 ship.

Ships of the type can be armed with the Yakhont (NATO reporting name: SS-N-26 Strobile) anti-ship or Kalibr (SS-N-27 Sizzler) missile system, two Kashtan-M antiaircraft missile/gun systems and the A-190 100mm gun. They can also carry a Kamov Ka-27 (Helix) helicopter.
