The Project 20380 Gromky Steregushchy-class corvette and two missile boats of the Primorye Flotilla have practiced solo combat in the Peter the Great Gulf,” the press office said. The Steregushchiy class is the newest class of corvettes being built for the Russian Navy that was designed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau.

In particular, the ships conducted artillery live-firing against seaborne and aerial targets and neutralized notional floating mines. Also, the missile boats imitated a launch of cruise missiles with the use of the Moskit (SS-N-22 Sunburn) missile system against the simulated enemy’s naval formation.

The Gromky corvette practiced taking a Kamov Ka-27 (Helix) helicopter on board. The crews also threw grenades to protect the ships from frogmen in an unsafe roadstead.
