Keel of Derzky newest corvette for Russian NAVY will be laid in Saint Petersburg on the eve of the 320th anniversary of the Russian Fleet

Keel of 20386-project newest corvette will be laid in Saint Petersburg on the eve of the 320th anniversary of the Russian Fleet. The ship was assigned a name Dersky by the order of the Russian Navy Commander-in-Chief Admiral Vladimir Korolyov.

The corvette will have a hull and upperworks allowing to decrease radar signature. The ship is to be fitted with modern anti-ship and anti-submarine armament complexes as well as air defence missile system.

The corvette will include an onboard helicopter; the possibility of equipping it with drones is also being explored. In addition, the ship will have the latest domestic avionics and electronic weapons systems, which have no equivalents in the world.

It is expected that this will increase by many times the effectiveness of monitoring water surface, air and underwater conditions and will facilitate new possibilities for conducting electronic warfare, despite the fact that the corvette will be manufactured using stealth technology that makes it invisible to the enemy.
