The Russian State Commission signed the acceptance papers for the new corvette “Stoiky” on July 18 in Baltiysk.
According to PortNews.ru, this third serial corvette of project 20380 was built at Severnaya Verf, part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
“Stoiky” inherited its name from its famous predecessors: the first of the Baltic Fleet’s 7U destroyer project.
Corvette “Steregushchy” became the first surface ship that entered service with the Russian Navy in the modern history of Russia, and was followed by other ships “Soobrazitelnyy” and “Boikiy”.
The vessel is capable of performing littoral zone operations, engagement of enemy submarines and surface ships, and gun support of landing operations.
