Russian Navy commissions Project 20380 corvette Sovershenny into Pacific Fleet

The Russian Navy has commissioned its fourth Project 20380 corvette, the Sovershenny, into the Pacific Fleet with a flag-raising ceremony in the Port of Vladivostok.

The ship was commissioned after concluding builder’s and state trials in early July.

Also referred to as Steregushchy-class corvettes, the ships are designed by the Almaz Central Marine Design bureau, and started entering service with the Russian Navy since 2007 when the first vessel in the class, the Steregushchy was commissioned.

The newest vessel in the class started construction in June 2006 and was launched in May 2015.

The ships displace 2,200 tons at full load and reach speeds of up to 27 knots. Steregushchy-class corvettes served as the basis for the design of Gremyashchy-class and Project 2038.6 corvettes.
