March 11, 2020 (Google Translation) – The head corvette of project 20385 “Gremyashchiy”, which was undergoing state sea trials in the Northern Fleet, embarked on an inter-naval transition. Last night, escorted by the Pamir rescue tugboat, he sailed to the Barents Sea from the main base of the Northern Fleet and headed for the Baltic.
Tests of the “Gremyashchiy” corvette have been in the Northern Fleet since November 13, 2019. First, the ship fired with Caliber and Onyx cruise missiles at coastal and naval targets in the White Sea.
In the Barents Sea, the crew fired from simulated A-190 and AK-630 artillery shells at simulated aerial targets. Then he worked out torpedo firing at underwater and surface targets using new types of naval weapons.
The last element of the test program in the Northern Fleet was the development of the struggle for the survivability of the ship and its towing.
