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 20385 is a larger and improved version of the Project 20380 Steregushchy class corvette being built by the Severnaya Verf shipyard in Saint Petersburg for the Russian Navy. The combat performance of this improved class is expected to surpass its predecessors and the existing counterparts in foreign Navies. The lead ship of Project 20385 class named Gremyashchy was laid down on February 1, 2012, and is expected to be commissioned by 2016.
