The introduction of personnel is scheduled for spring 2018. The lead ship of the project series 20385 “Thundering” is planned to be transferred the fleet in 2018 year.
The 20385 project was developed by Almaz Central Metallurgical Bureau. Within the program of import substitution, the Main Power Plant of the production of the Kolomna Plant was installed on the “Graemae”. To adapt the project to the domestic engines, the design bureau needed to substantially rework the project documentation. 20385 is a modernized design of the new generation of corvette. Its main task is to detect and destroy enemy surface ships or submarines. Also, a warship serves for the landing of troops, protection of the coastal zone, escorting other ships. Artillery, missile, anti-submarine, sonar and radar complexes are located on the ships. The project provides a hangar for the Ka-27 helicopter. Thanks to the original architecture and the use of composite materials in combination with special coatings, as well as the missile armament and antenna posts at the corvettes built into the hull, the radar, acoustic and optical visibility is significantly reduced.
