Russia’s Pacific Fleet is to receive about 10 cutting-edge warships and support vessels in 2018, Pacific Fleet Spokesman Nikolay Voskresensky said on Tuesday.
"In 2018, the Pacific Fleet plans to receive about 10 advanced warships and support vessels. It is planned that after the Sovershenny corvette that arrived in Vladivostok this year, the Gromky and Gremyashchy advanced corvettes - which already have crews - will become part of the fleet’s surface force. One of these ships is being built in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, and the other, at St. Petersburg’s Northern Shipyards," Voskresensky told TASS.
It is also planned to deliver to the fleet the first in the batch Project 636.3 diesel-electric submarine. These submarines are being built specifically for the Pacific Fleet, they have improved characteristics and are capable of carrying Kalibr sea-launched cruise missiles. The fleet will also receive new anti-sabotage boats and a few support ships, including a modern tugboat.
