Project 22800 / Karakurt Class

The Project 22800 Karakurt-class missile corvette was designed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau in St. Petersburg. The ship is intended to engage the enemy’s strategic facilities in green waters, destroy hostile surface combatants and offshore installations individually and in conjunction with other forces, and repel air attacks. It can also eliminate frogmen, conduct search-and-rescue operations, and support coast guard units.

The Project 22800 corvette has a length of about 67 meters, a width of 11 meters. The ship is powered by three M-507D-1 diesel engines with a power output of 8000 hp each. The corvette features a top speed of up to 30 knots, an economical speed of 12 knots, a cruising range of 2500 nautical miles, and an endurance of 12 days. The ship launches missiles at Level 5 sea state.

The corvette’s armament comprises an AK-176MA 76 mm gun and a Pantsir-M (NATO reporting name: SA-22 Greyhound) antiaircraft missile/gun system. The ship is equipped with an eight-cell vertical launcher for Kalibr (SS-N-27 Sizzler) cruise missiles, which is located in its superstructure. The Project 22800 corvette features increased seaworthiness, high maneuverability, and low radar signature of its superstructure and hull. Ships of the class have a stealth shaped superstructure with an integrated mast carrying four phased array radar panels. The ship can carry an Orlan-10 unmanned aerial vehicle.

Missile Corvette Askold laid down on 18 November 2016 at the Zaliv Shipyard, Kerch (yard No.802), launched on 21 September 2021.

Now the ship continues sea trials in combat training areas in the Black Sea.
