KOMSOMOLSK-ON-AMUR, July 28. /TASS /. The Amur Shipyard in Russia’s Far East floated the Gromky corvette of project 20380 on Friday.
"Exactly a week ago we handed over the Sovershenny corvette to the Navy. It passed all test trials and is on combat duty now. Today we launch a new corvette - the Gromky," said Khabarovsk Region Governor Vyacheslav Shport who attended the ceremony.
He added that the Sovershenny corvette was highly praised by the operators. The Amur Shipyard is building four corvettes for the Navy. Three of them have to be handed over in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
