“The crew and the trial team will carry out work at the berth of the Severnaya Verf Shipyard to prepare the corvette for joining the Navy and for the flag-raising ceremony,” the press office said.
The corvette will be made operational with the Navy after all of its mechanisms and systems are checked.
The ship is planned to join the Navy in late December.
During the final stage of the state trials in the Baltic Sea, the crew fired the Redut air defense missile system, AK-190 and AK-630 artillery systems against a practice target imitating an adversary antiship cruise missile. The target was hit with air defense missiles fired by the corvette.
Earlier, the Gremyashchy corvette fired Kalibr (NATO reporting name: SS-N-27 Sizzler) and Oniks (SS-N-26 Strobile) cruise missiles against a coastal and seaborne target in the White Sea. It conducted artillery and torpedo live-firing in the Barents Sea.
The Gremyashchy corvette (side No. 337) is the Project 20385 lead ship laid down by the Severnaya Verf Shipyard on February 1, 2012 and launched in June 2017. The ship is designed for the Pacific Fleet.
