Corvette Mercury
Project 20380 / Steregushchiy Class

The Steregushchiy class, Russian designation Project 20380, is a class of corvettes being built for the Russian Navy. Designed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau, subsequent vessels were built to an improved design (Project 20385), incorporating the Zaslon-Redut SAM system. Stealth technology was widely used during the construction of the ships, as well as 21 patents and 14 new computer programs.

The corvette has a displacement of 1800 tons, a total of 2250 tons. The length is the largest at 104.5 meters, width 13 meters, and maximum draft of 8,37 meters. It has a maximum speed of 27 knots and has a cruising range of 4000 miles.

The Steregushchiy-class corvettes have a steel hull and composite material superstructure, with a bulbous bow and nine watertight subdivisions. They have a combined bridge and command center, and space and weight provision for eight SS-N-25 missiles. Project 20380 warships carry the Uran missile system with 8 container launching ramps and an ammunition load consisting of eight Kh-35U antiship missiles with a firing range of up to 260 km.

The ship is armed with 100 mm A-190 Arsenal naval gun, SAM system 3K96-3 Redut, four Kh-35, two AK-630M CIWS, and two 14.5 mm MTPU pedestal machine guns.

Corvette Retiviy laid down on 20 February 2015 and launched on 12 March 2020 by Severnaya Verf in Saint Petersburg. The ship changed its name to Mercury on October 15, 2021 in honor of a 19th century sailing ship of the Black Sea fleet that distinguished itself in the 1828-1829 Russian-Turkish war.
