In 2011, the Russian Navy placed a competition to create the image of a corvette of a new generation. Recently it became known that United Shipbuilding Corporation OJSC has begun to create a prototype and test computer models of the corvette of a new generation, said a Telegraphist at the General Staff of the Russian Navy.
Meanwhile, there is no reliable information that this is a corvette that won the competition, but according to the captain of the 1 rank, with whom the Telegraphist was able to discuss newsThis is a fundamentally new ship that will use stealth technology, known as stealth.
The Corvette is a multipurpose ship that combines the functions of rocket-artillery, anti-aircraft, anti-submarine and anti-mine ships.
Some conditions of the competition:
The futuristic appearance of the corvette should be a single platform that can transform depending on the performance of the above functions. The platform should have contours that significantly reduce its effective area of dispersion (implementation of “Stealth” technologies) and can be performed both in single-hull and multi-hull versions (catamaran, trimaran), including using different dynamic maintenance principles (on hydrofoil , air cushion, air cavern, etc.).
Computer models of the winner of the competition:
