Steregushchy-class (Project 20380) corvettes Boiky of the Russian Navy Baltic Fleet
     
The Russian Navy’s Baltic Fleet operates four Project 20380 corvettes - the Steregushchy, Soobrazitelny, Boijy and Stoiky. The Project 20380 Retivy and Strogy and Project 20385 Gremyashchy and Provorny corvettes are being built by the Northern Wharf Shipyard. The Amur Shipyard is building three more Project 20380 corvettes.

Project 20385 has been criticized as being too expensive and redundant in its armament. Another reason for Russia resuming Project 20380 corvettes construction may be European sanctions following the crisis in Ukraine: The improved design is fitted with MTU engines (from Germany) instead of the Russian DDA12000 diesel units in the original vessels. The recent sanctions mean Russia can not take delivery of the German made engines anymore.

Only two Gremyashchy-class corvette (of Project 20385) have been laid so far: The first one, Gremyashchy, in February 2012 and the second one, Provornyy, in July 2013.

The Gremyashchy-class corvettes differ from their predecessors of the Steregushchy-class by greater dimensions and displacement. They have a steel hull and composite superstructure, with a bulbous bow and nine watertight subdivisions. Compared with the Soobrazitelny, Boiky, Sovershenny and Stoiky ships, which are fitted with Redut air defense VLS system of 12 launchers on the bow, these new ships are equipped with a UKSK VLS system comprising 8 launchers for SS-N-27 or SS-N-26 cruise missiles instead.

The Russian Navy will get a Project 23550 ice patrol ship capable of simultaneously serve as an icebreaker, a tug boat and a patrol ship said Russian ts Navy Commander Viktor Chirkov in April 2015. "The new generation vessel will have the capacity of a tug, an icebreaker and a patrol boat at the same time. This flexibility will enable the vessel to carry out a wide range of tasks in the Arctic zone. This year, we will finalize the design"- said Chirkov at the time.
