Description: The Project 20380 Steregushchy is an stealthy corvette capable of countering enemy submarines, surface ships and airborne platforms autonomously or in cooperation with other naval forces in the littoral environment. Besides, Project 20380 ship can perform protection of borders and exclusive economic zones (EEZs) missions. The ship was designed by Central Marine Design Bureau Almaz utilizing extensively stealth technologies and at least one ship has been built for the Russian Navy at Severnaya Verf (Northern Shipyard) in St. Petersburg. As of 2011, five of these ships have been constructed or are under construction for the Russian Navy.
The Project 20380 hull and superstructure are made of steel, advanced design materials and innovative manufacturing techniques. Its modular design allows for space-efficient integration of weapon systems and/or replacement by alternative weapon systems. Its propulsion system is based on Combined Diesel And GAS (CODAG) with two gas turbines 2x10,000 KW and two diesel engines 2x3,750 KW. After the second ship of the series the propulsion system consists of four 16D49 diesel engines developing 23,320-hp together. The ship features an aft hangar and flight deck for a single Ka-27 ASW helicopter. The stealth design includes reduction of radar, acoustic, infrared, magnetic and visual signatures.
The Project 20382 refers to export version of Project 20380 class corvette. These vessels may be fitted with different sensors and weapon systems than those employed by the Russian Navy. In June 2007, Rosoboronexport and Indonesian Navy signed an agreement for the construction of two Project 20382 vessels, of which the first one meant to be built in Spain, that would lead lead to a contract in the near future and thus the first export order for the ship. In June 2011 at International Maritime Defense Show, IMDS-2011, in Saint Petersburg, Algeria and Russia signed a contract for the construction of two Project 20382 corvettes. The first vessel of this class is expected to be commissioned by the Algerian Navy within 2015. Algeria is also planning to acquire four more vessels after 2020.
