Russian Navy will receive Project 20380 corvette Boiky by the end of 2012, reports press service of JSC Severnaya Verf shipyard referring to its director Alexander Ushakov.

According to Ushakov, the yard's directors assumed a commitment to deliver corvette Boiky to the Navy by the end of 2012.

The corvette has already passed the shipyard's sea trials; about 70 certificates were signed then.

In the nearest time, JSC Arsenal will produce a 100-mm gun mount A190-01 for the corvette, and late in Nov or early in Dec the ship will move to Baltiysk acceptance base for the second phase of sea trials. Then will begin state acceptance trials. If weather permits to finish them by the year end, the ship's acceptance certificate would be signed.

The second batch-produced Project 20380 corvette Boiky was put afloat at Severnaya Verf on Apr 15, 2011. Keel for the ship was laid down in July 2005.

Lead ship of the series is corvette Stereguschiy that was handed over to Baltic Fleet in 2007. The next ship, Soobrazitelny, joined Baltic Fleet on Oct 14, 2011.

The corvette project was developed by Almaz Design Bureau. Such ships are used for littoral zone operations, engagement of enemy submarines and surface ships, and gun support of landing operations. Stealth technology was widely used during construction of the ships, as well as 21 patents and 14 new computer programs. Newest physical field reduction solutions were applied too. As a result, designers considerably reduced the ship's radar signature thanks to hull architecture and fire-resistant radar-absorbent fiberglasses applied in tophamper's design.
