New Russian warship unveiled

The corvette Soobrazitelny was shown to the public for the first time at the Fifth International Maritime Defence Show (IMDS-2011) in St. Petersburg. More than 70 industrial and research companies contributed to the development and construction of the vessel ordered by the Russian Navy.

The corvette carries an impressive array of armaments: an Uran anti-ship missile system, an AK-630M surface-to-air artillery unit, an A-190 automatic artillery system plus multiple torpedo tubes.

To jam and protect itself against homing missiles the Soobrazitelny features a radioelectronic suppression system. The system actively jams incoming missiles and can guide an enemy warhead to a decoy target.

A KA-27PL anti-submarine helicopter is based on the corvette to seek and attack submarines.
