The corvette is expected to be commissioned by Victory Day in 2022.

In early July, the Rezky corvette left the slipway of the Amur Shipyard and was moved to the outfitting dock for outfitting work and trials.

Earlier, the Amur Shipyard built Project 20380 corvettes Sovershenny, Gromky and Hero of the Russian Federation Aldar Tsydenzhapov. After the Rezky is commissioned, the shipyard will construct another ship of the type, i.e. the Grozny. The enterprise is loaded with state orders through 2028 and may receive additional orders for 2025-2033.

The shipyard needs a new transport dock and a hydraulic unit to extend its range of ships. The operational dock is 80% worn-out. Its service life was prolonged several times by the Pacific Fleet commander. In 2021, it was prolonged for the last time. The construction of the transport dock is estimated at 9.2 billion rubles ($125 million).

The Rezky Steregushchiy class, Russian designation Project 20380, is a class of corvettes being built for the Russian Navy and designed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau. The corvettes has a steel hull and composite material superstructure, with a bulbous bow and nine watertight subdivisions. She has a combined bridge and command center, and space and weight provision for eight SS-N-25 missiles. Stealth technology was widely used during the construction of the ships, as well as 21 patents and 14 new computer programs.
