Russia’s Project 20385 “Gremyashchiy” armed with Kalibr and Oniks cruise missiles has completed state trials in the Barents Sea. The ship has completed its program of trials at Northern Fleet ranges. In the White Sea, the vessel delivered fire with Kalibr and Oniks cruise missiles against a coastal and a naval target. Project 20385 envisages a hangar for a Ka-27 helicopter. The corvettes displace 2,200 tonnes and their sea endurance is 15 days. They are armed with Kalibr-NK universal missile systems and Paket anti-submarine warfare technology. 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.
