He added the Sovershenny corvette was highly praised by the operators. The Amur Shipyard is building four corvettes for the Navy. Three of them have to be handed over in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

Multipurpose corvettes of project 20380 are close sea zone warships capable of fighting surface warships and submarines and providing fire support to landing operations. The full displacement is close to 2.2 thousand tons, the speed is 27 knots and autonomous navigation range is 4 thousand miles. The main armaments comprise anti-ship and anti-aircraft Uran and Redut missile complexes, artillery and anti-submarine weapons. The corvettes carry a helicopter.

Stealth technologies are used in construction as well as the latest solutions to decrease the physical field of the warship. In particular, the radar signature was considerably decreased due to low-combustible radar-absorptive fiberglass used in the superstructure, as well as the architecture of the hull and superstructure.
