“The Project 20385 corvette created by the design bureau Almaz [a subsidiary of the United Shipbuilding Corporation] is the further development of the Project 20380 ships. The ship features modern strike weapons and electronic warfare systems,” said the Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Admiral Nikolay Yevmenov.

The ‘Gremyashchiy’ (hull number: 337) is the Project 20385 type guided missile corvette. The ship was laid down at the Northern Shipyard on February 1, 2012 and was launched in June 2017. The naval platform is intended for the Pacific Fleet of the Russian Navy. Unlike Project 20380, the Project 20385 is armed with an eight-cell 3S-14 vertical launch system that fires Kalibr (SS-N-27 Sizzler), Otvet, and Oniks (SS-N-26 Strobile) guided missiles. The surface combatants are also armed with the 3S.97 Redit surface-to-air misile (SAM) systems (16 cells).

The Project 20385 corvette is designed for strike missions and anti-submarine warfare. The ship has a displacement of 2,500 t, a length of 106 m, a width of 13 m, a speed of 27 knots, a range of 4,000 nautical miles, and a crew of 99 servicemen. The ship is armed with an A-190-01 100 m naval gun, two AK-630M close-in weapon systems, the Kalibr missile system, the Redut surface-to-air missiles, the Paket anti-submarine warfare system, and Kamov Ka-27 (Helix-A) naval rotorcraft.
