Russias newest Baltic Fleet warship, the Project 20380 Boiky corvette, will be handed over to the Navy on May 16, St. Petersburg's Severnaya Verf shipyard said on Monday.

The Boiky has completed sea trials and undergone a series of final tests at the shipyard.

The 20380 class, designed by the Almaz naval design bureau and built at Severnaya Verf, is optimized for antisubmarine and surface warfare and support for land operations. The class incorporates stealth technology, which has considerably reduced its radar and infrared signatures.

On April 1, the Boiky was sprinkled with holy water in a Russian Orthodox Christian blessing ceremony. A priest blessed the corvettes hull, weapons systems and superstructures, as well as the ships interior.
