INS Pralaya was commissioned in the Indian Navy on 18 December, 2002. The 56 m long ship, displacing about 477 T is capable of speeds in excess of 36 knots and is fitted with an impressive array of weapons and sensors.

INS Pralaya is powered by Combined gas turbine and gas turbine (COGAG) propulsion system including two Nikoyaev Type DR77 Gas Turbine and two Nikolayev Type DR76 Gas Turbines. She can reach a top speed of 30 knots (56 km/h).

The corvette is armed with eight Uran surface-to-surface missile, four Strela-3M SAM, 76/62 OTO-Melara Compact SR and 30/54 AK-630M which is a Soviet and Russian fully automatic naval close-in weapon system based on a six-barreled 30 mm rotary cannon. In "630", "6" means 6 barrels and "30" means 30 mm. It is mounted in an enclosed automatic turret and directed by MR-123 radar and television detection and tracking. The system's primary purpose is defense against anti-ship missiles and other precision guided weapons. However it can also be employed against fixed or rotary wing aircraft, ships and other small craft, coastal targets, and floating mines. Once operational, this weapon system was rapidly adopted, with up to 8 units installed in every new Soviet warship (from mine-hunters to aircraft carriers), and hundreds produced in total.
