    "The first production-standard radar has been made to date. It handles aerial targets at a distance of around 100 km, has the identification friend or foe [IFF] system and can monitor the surface of the sea," Khomyakov said.

    The Russian Navy is expected to receive a total of 18 Project 22800 corvettes built by the Pella Shipyard in the Leningrad Region and by the More Shipyard in Feodosiya, with the Zelenodolsk Shipyard in Tatarstan having landed an order for five ships.

    The Project 22800 Karakurt-class guided missile corvette was developed by the Almaz Design Bureau. She measures 60 m long and 10 m abeam, with a draught of 4 m. Her main propulsion unit is diesel-electric and Russian-made. The ship has a maximum speed of 30 knots, a cruising range of 2,500 nm and an endurance of 15 days. Her armament will comprise a 100-mm or 76-mm versatile automatic gun and the Pantsir-M or Palma air defense missile/gun system. The corvette’s superstructure will house an UKSK eight-cell VLS to accommodate the Kalibr-NK system’s missiles.

    Two Project 22800 guided missile corvettes, the Uragan and Typhoon, had been laid down by the Pella Shipyard in St. Petersburg. The third hull has been laid down by the Federal State Unitary Enterprise «Shipyard «Morye» in Feodosiya, Crimea in May this year. The lead ship is slated for delivery in 2017.
