State tests of the corvette "Thundering" project 20385 completed

The newest corvette "Thundering" of project 20385 has completed the state tests and returned to "Severnaya Verf" to prepare for transfer to fleet... This is reported by the Ministry of Defense.


As the representative of the press service of the Ministry of Defense for the Navy (Navy), Captain First Rank Igor Dygalo, on Sunday evening, December 13, the corvette "Gremyashchiy" arrived in St. ... At the enterprise, the corvette will undergo inspection and preparation for admission to the Russian Navy. The ceremony of raising the Andreevsky flag will take place until the end of December, the exact date has not yet been announced.

As previously reported by the Ministry of Defense, the "Thundering" corvette will become part of the Pacific Fleet.

For our part, we note that the tests of the "Thundering" lasted more than a year, initially it was supposed to enter the fleet by the end of 2019, but it was decided to continue the tests, and the ceremony was held at the end of August 2020, but it was also postponed.

The 20385 Project “Thundering” is the lead ship of the series. Laid down in February 2012, launched in June 2017. Construction was delayed due to the non-delivery of German MTU power plants. The corvette was completed with Russian diesel engines 1DDA-12000 of the Kolomensky plant. The unit consists of two 16D49 engines with 6000 horsepower.

The ship is a further development of project 20380. Designed to detect and destroy surface enemy ships or submarines, organize landing, guard the coastal zone, escort other ships.

Displacement - 2200 tons, length - 104 m, width - 13 m, speed - up to 27 knots, cruising range - 3500 miles, autonomy - 15 days crew - 99 people.

        Everything will be in order and the corvette will serve our fleet for a long time. On the other hand, I regret that the name "Thundering" which was borne by the guards destroyer of the Northern Fleet is leaving for the Pacific Fleet. Well then, we must wish that the corvette honorably bore this name on its board.
        And yet, how much can you confuse projects 20385 with 20380, they have different dimensions. The length is 2 meters longer, and almost 300 tons heavier.

          I am not confused. I know many other differences besides the ones you mentioned. wink

    A beautiful ship with a very traditional name in the Russian fleet - the first built in 1763 !!!

    Seven feet under the keel!

    Out of curiosity, will this corvette go to Vladivostok along the northern road or in the footsteps of the 2nd Pacific squadron across half the world? The range and autonomy are relatively small, so moving around will also be difficult.

        Thank you for your answer Thank you for your answer. I thought so, although longer sailing in different climates would be a good test and practice for the crew.

      Until the end of the year, they will also receive one 20380 and Alexandrite, and the Pacific Fleet will have a Christmas tree with gifts.
