The lead corvette of Russia’s Project 20385 “Gremyashchiy” armed with Kalibr and Oniks cruise missiles has completed state trials in the Barents Sea.
"The ship has successfully completed its program of trials at Northern Fleet ranges. In the White Sea, the ship delivered fire with Kalibr and Oniks cruise missiles against a coastal and a naval target. In the Barents Sea, it fired A-190 and AK-630 artillery guns against simulated air targets and conducted torpedo fire against an underwater and a surface target, employing the latest seaborne weapon systems," the Northern Fleet said in a statement Monday.
The state trials began in early December. The Northern Fleet had stated last month that the equipment and functioning of the boat including radio-technical armament will be tested.
Project 20385 envisages a hangar for a Ka-27 helicopter. The corvettes displace 2,200 tonnes, have an operating range of 3,500 miles and their sea endurance is 15 days. They are armed with Kalibr-NK universal missile systems, Redut anti-aircraft missile complexes and Paket anti-submarine warfare technology.
